Default Resolution Reset on Startup

I have a 1280x1024 monitor. Every time I start Windows Vista, my screen
resolution automatically resets itself to 640x480. I have no idea why, but I
have to change it back every time i start Windows. I've looked around, but I
seem to be the only one I know of who has this problem. Does anyone know how
I can solve this?

I am having the same problem. I have a 3 month old Dell laptop and the
resolution keeps changing. At times the screen will go black in the middle of
working and changes the resolution. If you find a solution to this let me
know.

I have the same problem as well. I have a 1440X900 screen that sometimes
resets to a lower resolution upon startup. My computer is an HP Pavilion
DV9000, and I am using Windows Vista. Anyone know what is going on?

Same problem, just got a new Dell laptop and it's doing this every time I put
it on standby or reboot.

Did anyone find a solution?

I have this issue as well and it's been several months since this first post.
No answers yet? It's very annoying to have to reset the resolution everytime
I open the lid of my laptop.

some ideas:
1 If you use system on/off switch to turn off your system instead of your
shutdown option then your setting changes are not saved.
2. Do you mean when you start Vista or do you mean when you start Media
Center in Vista?
3. If you mean Media Center then make sure you have told Media Center that
you have a 1280x1024 display.
4, Is the native resolution of the laptop really 1280x1024?

Default Resolution Reset on Startup

hi

This problem on my machine has now just stopped. I tried messing around with
the settings on control panel, but I'm not sure if that was what did it as it
didnt stop immediately.

FYI the folllowing two options are now ticked on Display Panel (Options)
when Monitor 1 is selected:

- it's my principal monitor
- stretch the desktop to this moniter

(NB these are rough translations from the French).

Hope this is of use,

Simon

I've got the same problem with an Acer SA90. It's set for 1440 x 900 but
about one time in 20 it comes up in a lower resolution. I have to
restart the computer to cure it, just logging out and back in again
doesn't help, and I have to make sure I don't do anything much first
otherwise all my icons get moved about by it.
