Windows 7: Boot up and Power Save Screen Resolution

Boot up and Power Save Screen Resolution

OS: Windows 7 RC build 7100
Monitor: KDS VS-190i
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce FX5500 AGP

Issue: On bootup or back from power save, the screen resolution is at the basic 1024 x 768. When I go into the Screen Resolution screen, the Monitor drop down has Generic PnP Monitor. I press Detect and poof . . . My monitor name appears in the drop down and the monitor resolution has set to 1280 x 1024. After that it is fine.

I've downloaded and installed the latest Vista Nvidia drivers. There are no Windows 7 drivers. There is a monitor driver, but its so old that Win 7 will not recognize it. The monitor is from 2001/2002 timeframe.

Any thoughts what I can do to make the resolution "stick"?

Thanks

Dan

Hi halversondm

2) donwload drivers from:

theog,

First, I don't do things just because someone says so. So what hard evidence do you have that 7600 RTM is going to help fix my issue? Second, I already have those drivers installed with build 7100.

Thanks

Some new information.
After start-up, I set the resolution to 1280x1024 and restarted. Now, that resolution sticks, but the Monitor still says Generic PnP. I don't have and never will have a new driver for this monitor. I'm using a Microsoft driver dated 6/21/2006 version 6.1.7100.0.
