We know what you meant, but though I might call it that just for fun 
from now on.

What is the highest mode that is listed when you do that?

Which drivers did you install?  Detonators?

My top five would be:

1. Incorrect monitor profile such that the card things the display panel 
or CRT can't go higher.
2. Have you got all the mainboard drivers / chipset drivers installed 
and up to date?
3. Not quite a perfect match - i.e. not the right driver; there could be 
something more specific.
4. Faulty video memory or video card - if so, when did you last see this 
card working or is it new?
5. Actually, I've run out already.  If the hardware is not faulty, then 
9 times out of 10 you will have a driver that is close, but not the 
correct one.
