Windows 7: Resolution changes upon restart

Thanks Darryl but I have trashed the nVIDIA control panel, PhysX...just using graphics driver. I don't play games (too old ). Reason for upgrading was to get better video from WMP and the DivX players. The nVIDIA panel, when installed, will change my monitor's color settings.

Normally, the profile loads when Windows starts.
I have no Profile in the menu.

And now a new problem is the color goes awry upon each restart even thought the nVIDIA CP is set to use other app's settings. I reclick it and it changes back to my monitor settings.

You should be able to go into Nvidia control panel I posted earlier and set it.
At 1) in the window it should show monitor.
Then you set what you need and it "SHOULD" stay set after reboot or shutdown.

I'm not sure what is going on.
I will post if I find anything else helpful.

This is just to double check your driver against what I installed today.
Should be the same. We both are using Win 7 64bit .
Hi Mike I went through windows update and it had a newer driver and it SEEMS to have solved the problems. thanks for the help!

I never got that one from Windows. The March one was the first to show up for me.
If it works I guess that is the right one for now.

I've run into that problem with other software- older version was the best.

Maybe the next version will fix the bugs for you.

Update:
Problem of auto resizing still is there. I put in an ASUS flavor GTX460 to day too, same drivers. I was reading in another forum that sometimes left over ATI stuff will cause problems, as you said. Well I looked and found "AMD external events utility" running so I've disabled it...I think.

I think I got it sorted....maybe.

I think...think, I found the problem on the goofy resolution issue. I have Weatherbug installed and it was set to run at 640X480. I unchecked that in the properties dialog and so far after 3 reboots the res is staying at my native 1920X1080. <Crosses fingers>
I did a google search and found many others having the same issues even with XP. One smart cookie found this by checking all his start-ups.

Thanks to all of you!

After days and several HOURS of digging and searching and trying to figure out why my resolution on my new 27" monitor kept changing from 1920x1080 to 1360x768 after every restart/resume from sleep, I FINALLY figured it out and I thought it might help someone else down the road. So I updated my drivers for my monitor and my GPU, that didn't help...At last I did a diagnostic test from msconfig (start>msconfig>enter) after going through all the services selections and restarting after unchecking everything, it didn't reset on me! So I dug through all of the services and restarted the computer doing 20 at a time, narrowing it down to the service: Windows Live Mesh remote connections service. And it finally dawned on me that this service must be set at that ugly resolution. So until Micorosft issues a fix for it I am unistalling Live Mesh and I no longer have to be constantly annoyed everytime I restart my computer. I hope this helps someone in the future with this annoying issue!

Thanks and welcome to Seven forums silverton64. Does that Live mesh have a res setting in its proerties to change it to 1920x1080?
