Just updated to 9.2.2. Now I have only one monitor resolution available in the control panel - 640 X 480. This doesn't affect Classic (fortunately) but a 19" Sony G400 should do better than 640 X 480 when booting OS 9. System is dual 800 with GeForce3 Any ideas?

Oops! That was a quick one. Just zapped my pram and was good to go. Whew!

Not so fast there, young fella! It only worked until I restarted again. The other people reporting this problem on MacInTouch all seem to have the same monitor - Sony G400. Can't seem to get a RAM disk to appear either. Haven't these software updates been fun lately?

Livemotion, what kind of monitor do you have? I tried it on my Sony G400 with no luck. You did mean the MONITOR reset button, Right?

Oh, well, at least the RAM disk is working again.

The "fix" turns out to be replacing the new nVIDIA driver (2.4) installed with 9.2.2 with the old one (2.3) from the OS 9.2.1 disk. Think Apple will post an updated driver anytime soon? Naaaah.

I'm a Sony 420GS owner with the same resolution problem. I think Sony is the only band of display with this problem according to posts I've read on Macfixit, etc. I replaced my drivers with ver. 2.1.1 nvidia driverss I had saved from a previuos install and everything works. I guess the result is the same with vers. 2.3 as well.
I sure hope Apple doesn't blow off us Sony owners!!!
