Well im very perplexed.
I wiped everything on the partition,and did a fresh install,of Windows 7,installed the catalyst control centre.
I emphasise the resolution was 1156xwhatever to start with,so after installing the catalyst control centre,i right clicked on the icon,set desktop area to 1024x768,and waited with bated breath,the screen went blank for a second then WAHEY! 1024x768!
I've got the right resolution with Aero.
But there's definitely something amiss,if i have to reinstall an OS to get the right resolution.
Well finally i did a Windows update on Fri nite and there was an update for ATI Radeon HD2400 pro.
The screen went black for about 7 seconds,then Woohoo! superb my problem has been rectified.
She's crashed a couple of times this weekend,but there's a marked improvement on stability.
Im running the RTM build 7600 which i class as a beta,as it's not on general release yet.
Saying that Vista was released into 7600 if my memory serves me correctly.
Something strange just happened,i just had a box saying new hardware detected and did another score.
I haven't put any new hardware in since my PCI express card,long before this new OS.
I find the sound to be very particular in Windows 7.. I can't quite put my finger on it but I find even if your using the top of the line sound cards the sound just doesn't sound as good as it should.. Hopefully some new drivers will solve the problem..
