I installed 9.4 yesterday but had to take it off because it was constantly changing my resolution. Even though i tried selecting 1920 by 1200, i would either get 800 by 600 or 1024 by 768.
This happened when i went to play Diablo II and back to desktop, but also while surfing the NET.

With the version i'm using now, 9.2, going back and forth between games and desktop, regardless of the game's resolution, i have my desktop with 1920 by 1200, so i discard that as the source of the problem.

Has this happened to anyone else? If so, were you able to fix it without un-installing the drivers?

I installed 9.4 after waiting to see if any were having issues with it. It installed just fine have not had any issues yet. (keeping fingers crossed)

I actually like the 9.4s just wish CCC would allow me to go higher than 790MHz on my core. Still, 790MHz core and 4100MHz on the RAM is pretty freaking sweet!

I should have mentioned, I can't use another utility as they don't like my Gainward card as it has dual BIOS (BIOSes?) anyroad, I'm pretty happy with how it is, only game I've seen slow down in, is Clear Sky.
