    my display drivers wont install.

    i just build a new computer for xmas, and im stuck in sh1tty 800x600 mode. i plugged my samsung syncmaster 152v monitor into the new pc and it simply wont install the drivers, wither from cd or interweb, saying there is a 'error code 259'

    im working on my old video card, but it would display fine on my other bigass monitor. wutsup?

    Found this associated with that error>

    "Cannot remove or update scale when scale is on."

    Whatever scale is turn it off.

    This is where I found it.

    tried that, but it just reboots and installs the default display drivers. i can still use windows, but these drivers wont go past 800x600 on 16 colours.

    if i get my new video card, would that fix it?

    remove and reinstall the video driver, default monitor drivers should allow all ranges.
