2 small problems with my PC

Hello there,

I two small problems with my PC.

1. Mostly in Windows 7 the resolution jumps from the normal 1400x900 to 1024x768 for no reason, is there a way to lock it on 1400x900 which is my normal resolution?

2. When I plug in my digital camera in Windows Vista, nothing happens and one of other items connected via USB goes off like the mouse. Why is this happening?

Both problems sound like a driver issue. I can help more if you completely fill out your system specs. It will help knowing the motherboard manufacturer and model.

Are there Windows 7 drivers available from your motherboard manufacturer? If so, have you downloaded them and installed them yourself? You'll need the chipset drivers and the onboard video drivers.
