Monitor and resolution reset on startup
I've got Windows 7 Ultimate (x64), my graphics card is an ATi 4670HD and my widescreen monitor is a 22inch Samsung SyncMaster 225MW.
Everything looks and works perfect. When I go to display, I click detect, and ofcourse it finds my monitor and sets it to its native resolutiob (1680*1050.)
But when I restart my computer, it will be set back to 1024*768 and it will be listed as the generic monitor.
The latest ATi drivers are installed on a fresh copy of W7 and there were no hitches at all. Also to add, I've got 2 seperate DVI cables used to make sure the cable wasn't at fault and they both give me the same result.
What is the problem? This is one I can't quite get my head around.
Any help is appreciated,

I have this exact problem, resolution resets to 800 x 600 and my monitor says Generic Non-PnP Monitor. If i hit detect it will sometimes change to SyncMaster and the right resolution but it often takes a few tries clicking detect. I am also experiencing many BSOD which i think MIGHT be related to the driver i have installed from samsung because it dates 2007.
