Windows 7: Recommended resolution issue

Recommended resolution issue

Having just changed my monitor from a 20" to a 24", I now find that whenever I log into windows, the resolution opens with 1920x1080 when it should be 1920x 1200 (recommended). Everytime I change it and save it, upon a restart it reverts back to 1920x1080.

At the moment the graphics card says that it should be able to handle the recommended resolution. Any ideas as to whats going on. I have the latest drivers for the card installed by the way.

TIA

If you got a driver CD for the 24" monitor, or try to download the monitor drivers from the manufacturer's site, install this driver in windows and this should solve your problem.

Better would be the model number of the monitor. That and unless he has changed it, he has a 4870 listed in his specs.

Hi folks, seems I've solved the problem.
Its to do with the MS Live Mesh driver.

Now I've uninstalled it, everything is working as it should, remembering the recommended resolution.

Glad to know that you have solved your problem.

How did you find out that MS Live Mesh driver is the cause of your problem?

I did some googling and found this.

It sort of described my problem, so uninstalled live mesh, and it solved my problem.
