Video card malfunctions

The video card I'm using is this one

The resolution should be at 1680 by 1050, which is what the monitor is supposed to use, but after I started up the computer it started using the 800 by 600 resolution. I was able to get to the display settings and set it back to 1680 by 1050, but then the screen is too big for the monitor, like it's been zoomed in. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and it fixed the problem yesterday, but I've had no luck with this when it did it again today. I'd really like to be able to use my desktop computer again!

Anyone know what the problem is?
If someone needs more information I'll try to provide
first H/A thread for me

edit: It works fine with monitors using 1280 by 1024 and my brother's monitor 1440 by 900
Don't know why it won't work for mine

    Does that video card support resolutions that high?

    Edit: Yes it does. Hmm...I had this happen once when i reformatted, but installing the newest drivers fixed it for me and never happened again. I am also using an ATI card, but mines a HD 4870 X2.
