If I set the resolution to any but 640x480, it's streachs it past the visable sceen. I even lost my mouse pointer for a few seconds tell I figure out what was happening

On a side note, my box had 200+ files with one of 4 worms/adware/malware on it. They where removed before playing, but the box still it's running right. (Some MS app's crash, i.e. wmplayer9)

Athlon XP 1900+
Windows 2000 SP3 or was it 4?.. the newest one
DirectX 9
Geforce fx5200/256M

When you run the test, does that image get stretched as well, or does it scale in size as expected when changing the resolution?
How much does it go past the screen? If only a bit, you may just need to adjust your monitor for that resolution. This shouldn't be a problem at whatever resolution your desktop is set to.
Click Start | Run, type in 'dxdiag' and hit Enter. If it reports any problems, you could try reinstalling DirectX.

The test image gets smaller. And I can't believe I didn't think about the montor not being set for those resolutions. Probably because when I switch to them as my desktop size, I don't have to adjust the screen. Very little if any. In 1024x768 32bit color/100hz, I had to change it from 100/100 to 71/51, 79/49 for 1280x960... If you can't tell, the image is getting that much more bigger per step in resolution, 1024x768 should have worked fine. I set that once I installed this card. Then I went to a higher resolution. I still don't know if it was just me not thinking or an intermittent bug. Thanx for the help

Maybe there is a difference between how Windows switches resolutions and how DirectX does so.
