Fighting The Desktop

Just spent nearly an hour and a half "fighting" with my desktop PC. I had left the computer for a few minutes earlier this afternoon, when I returned, resolution was all large and squishy. Tried resetting resolution in "Settings", no joy. Rebooted a couple of times, no joy. Unplugged monitor for a few minutes, no joy. Changed out video cables, no joy.

Finally, I checked the driver properties. It said the driver wasn't installed. Being everything was fine before I originally left the desk, I'm assuming the driver spontaneously combusted. Anywho, I went to ATI's website, downloaded and installed a new driver, now all is well again.
