Windows 7: Windows 7 - Screen resize at startup

Windows 7 - Screen resize at startup

I have my screen in 1024x786 resolution in windows 7 yet whenever i restart my computer it seems to resize my screen (widens it horizontally but not vertically) yet it still says that it is in the same resolution and if i change the resolution to something else then back to 1024x768 it goes back to normal. I think it might be something to do with my monitor (could be that it keeps setting it to widescreen or something) but im not sure.

Its nothing major, just a little annoying so its something i'd avoid if i could.

Thanks, Matt.

No POST screen, straight into Windows 7 startup screen, and freeze
Usually POST screen would show up first with a laptop company logo, but now Windows 7 startup appears first instead. Then, the Windows 7 startup screen freezes immediately. What's the problem? Motherboard or corrupted BIOS? Thanks.

Windows startup screen changes?
For some reason when I started up my PC today, I noticed that the startup screen was entirely different. Instead of the usual blue pattern, it's a gray background. I know it's not a problem, but I was just curious about it. I'm just so used to seeing the older background. Is there any way to change...
