Do you exit the game properly? I know some games boot into like a safe mode if not properly exited.

Have you ran this exe in compatibility mode?

They made it rather tricky in this game:
#1 you need to scroll with the middle mouse button to get to the other resolutions
#2 you actually have to press return before you move the mouse curs off of the selection

Is that what you mean?

If not, this might be helpful
