When I run a CD that requires a different screen setting from my 640x480
and I try in "Display" Settings the slider button to increase to "More" will not move.
What do I need to do to activate this?

Try running this program under Compatability Mode. Make a shortcut to the main app by right-clicking on it and selecting 'Sendto> Desktop (As a Shotcut)'
Right-Click on the new Shortcut and choose Properties

Now, look around in there, you want to run it in Compatability Mode, at a 640x480 res :-)

Hope this helps

(a) Get a better video card

(b) install the correct driver for the video card.

Most likely (b), as Windows default driver will likely be VGA 640 x 480

Visit the website for the card maker and download the driver.

Hmmm.... I do believe I mis-read that.. thought you were trying to get INTO 640x480, not out of it..

Im with GodFather.. Try Driver updates first :-)
