Cannot lower screen resolution to 640 x 480. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to change my computers screen resoultion to 640 x 480. It used to work, but now the lowest it will go is 800 x 600. Ya i know how to go to display properties and change the resolution but the slider will only go as low as 800 x 600. I guess some windows update must have disabled any resolutions lower than that. (gotta love microsoft...) Is there some hidden setting or do i have to get a program to let me do it? Or will i have to reformat my computer to get rid of the microsoft update that screwed me?
