Default resolution problem

Im sorry if this topic is in the wrong section, i think this is hardware related.

Ok, so the problem is i can run 1280x1024 on windows but as soon as i run any game the resolution is somewhere around 800x600 but it shows that its 1280x1024 and no matter what resolution i set it to the game thinks it's running on it but it's really running on 800x600, or lower, in fact. The funny part is, everything worked ok before i reinstaled windows when i upgraded my system - but when i reinstaled it this problem arose - and i don't have a clue as to what the problem could be. I instaled up to date video drivers but the motherboard (ECS Elitegroup 945G-M3) drivers are confusing me cos' there's three versions of it I don't know which to instal.

So windows runs high all the time, but no game will - is it directX? Help!

Are you using integrated Video or a video card?

Try uninstalling all the drivers for your video card, then restart the computer, then download the newest drivers and install them, then restart again, and then try another game.
