Hey everyone.

I installed Bootcamp with Windows 7 32x and I installed the drivers off my MAC OSX disc. However, when I restarted the computer, my computer's display would not turn on. I saw the Windows 7 logo and then it went black like it was in sleep mode.

I found the solution online to delete the atikmdag.sys file when you're on your Mac partition. I did that and was able to access my Windows deskop. I ran Apple Software Update and my Windows update.

The Windows partition is working fine but my resolution on a game, Mass Effect, is not allowing me to select my native resolution of my monitor which is 1920x1080. It is only allowing me to go up to 1020x800.

I'm currently on a Imac with a ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics card. I know I am able to max this game out with no problem because I had it maxed out before but I needed more space on my Windows partition, so I did a reinstall.

I looked all over the internet and I could not find anything, anyone have any suggestions?

Make sure you download the "mobile" driver for the Radeon 4670 not the standard desktop driver. Even though your iMac is a desktop it uses the mobile version of the Radeon. That should allow you to get full native resolution.
