Windows 7: Screen Resolution Changed Message

10 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Screen Resolution Changed Message

1. Program open in XP mode - even if minimized.
2. Switch to a different user.
3. Switch back to 1st user.

"Screen resolution of your monitor has changed" with the options "Refresh Now" or "Cancel"

Choosing either option clears message.

I think the display resolution of the VM (which cannot be changed by the user but varies with the size of the open window) is confusing Win 7.

Any insight and a way to stop message from popping up?

I do not have a fix for you, sorry. I just wanted to tell you that you can change the resolution and color depth in XP Mode if you disable the integration features.

Windows 7 "changed highest screen resolution" WTF?
Alright, so I was trying to fix something earlier. Something for my iPod. And then to finish the settings they told me to reboot my computer. I did. When it came back up, my screen had "shifted' or "changed the maximum resolution". I don't know what caused this (maybe windows update?) or why it...

Amd Catalyst has changed my resolution and it won't turn back!
