Default I Can't Change My Resolution.


i know it's probably a trivial problem but it's been killing me for days. i recently purchased and installed a new hard drive. ever since my display has remained at 16 colors and 640x480 resolution. i've tried everything i can think of and i simply cannot find any way of getting all of the colour options back.

i've got a PC Chips M810LR motherboard with on board everything. the display adapter comes up as "Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA)" and after using aida i found something under the "Physical Devices" section called "SiS 300 Integrated Video Adapter". also, in the motherboard/chipset section it says that i may have a problem because AGP is disabled.

how can i go about rectifying all of this?
