slowtwitch is on a distinguished road

I've just started using Windows XP SP3 on Bootcamp recently but ran into display problems just after a few weeks.

Started up in Windows and the screen resolution just went to 800x640 4bit by itself. Tried changing the settings but it can't be done at all.

Not sure of what is causing this cuz i'm still a noob. Any help and suggestions are appreciated.
