Screen resolution change after turning off computer


Recommended Posts

Hi speedy7 -

Just a very quick idea - When you set that to 1024 x 768 are you sure you hit the apply button at the bottom prior to clicking OK ??

I assume you did this by either 'click on blank area of screen or you go to Control panel > Display > Display properties > Settings > Then choose your setting and click Apply then OK -

Just recheck you do hit Apply - If you only clicked OK then it will not stay there -

Let us know how you go with rechecking this the next time you set this - :)

Thanks for asking - :P

Provide System Specifications:

  • Please download Speccy from here and save the installer to your desktop or another location where you can easily find it.
  • Double-click the file to begin installation and follow the onscreen steps to complete the installation and make sure that the checkbox next to Run Speccy is checked before you click on Finish at the end.
  • Once the program starts it will analyze your system, please be patient as it may take a few moments to complete.
  • Once it finishes and none of the areas say Analyzing click on the File button at the top and select Save Snapshot...
  • Save the file to your desktop and click Ok to confirm
  • Go to your desktop and right click on the file you just created and hover over Send to and select Compressed (zipped) Folder

Alright, the simplest first step would be to update your graphics drivers. To do so please download the latest drivers for you graphics card from here and save the file to your desktop but do not run it yet. First you need to uninstall your existing video drivers:

  • Click on the Vista Start vista-7-start.png button and select Control Panel
  • Click on Programs and Features
  • Uninstall the following if found by right clicking each entry and selecting Remove (if available as an option, otherwise click Change) and follow the instructions to completely remove the software:

    NVIDIA Forceware or NVIDIA Display Drivers

Once that's complete, reboot your computer when asked to do so and install the new drivers you downloaded previously. Once that's done, reboot if asked to do so once more and once that's done try setting your display resolution once more but be sure to do so through the Nvidia Control Panel which should be accessible by right-clicking on your desktop background or listed under Other Options in your Control Panel.

Please let me know how it goes.

Thanks :lol:
