My pc is currently locked at a resolution on startup that my crt doesn't support. All i see on startup is squiqly blue lines. Is there a reset button somewhere? Do i need to plug in 2 displays simultaneously to fix it?

If you are running windows are you able to use F8 and get into safe mode? (I am trying to rule out a bad monitor)

Also if you enter the BIOS screen do you still have the issue?

All startup screens/white text is solid up until windows loads. It started when i selected 1366x768 by right clicking the control center icon and I guess it didn't load my custom 1366x768 scaled to 1080i like it does through the catalyst desktop resolutions area.

I connected an lcd and set it to 1080i as well but i believe amd uses seperate monitor profiles so it didn't help.
