Windows 7: Don't want Default DPI of 150%

Don't want Default DPI of 150%

I've just realized that Windows 7 increases the default DPI (Text size) for displays with a High resolutin (seen 1650x1050).
On a HP notbook with a resolution of 1650x1050 W7 makes the 150% to the default value.
(not like in the Picture 100% (this is from a Notebook with Res of 1400x900))
So all the time (reboot) the Size is resetted to the default value of 150%.

So ist there a way to set the Defaultvalue back to 100% During StartUp in a proper easy managed way ? (i've to do this on about 20 Notebooks)

I don't think that that is the natural default. I have a 1920x1200 screen and it's set to "smaller 100%".

It may be some way that HP has set up their preconfigured installs for their notebooks...

But if it won't stick to where you set it then I'm not sure, I'd probaby get HP on the phone, though the chance of finding someone that knows what they are doing may be small...
