Issue Increasing Screen Resolution

Hey guys, I just upgraded from XP Media Center Edition to windows 7 Professional and now my screen resolution is all messed up, before I could take it up to like 1600x1200, now Windows 7 only allows me to go up to 1280x1024 and everything looks all scretched out...Please help!



the stretched out effect you are describing is in fact because of the lower resolution not being the native resolution for your monitor. windows normally detects the monitor resolution fine, so you may want to update windows. also, what graphics card do you have? You should download latest drivers for your graphics card and be able to adjust the resolution in the graphics cards control panel.
