Windows 7: login screen DPI settings different

login screen DPI settings different

I had a question about different DPI settings for different user accounts. I got a new laptop and when the windows login screen come up where you would enter in your user account and password it looks like the Display DPI settings are set at 125%. After I login however my Display DPI settings of 100% are applied. Is there a way to change the default Display DPI settings of the login screen? I am not sure if this would be a different registry settings under a different branch. Thanks.

can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen
when I try to login to either of the accounts, it flashed for a second and then goes back to the login screen. I did an offline defender scan and remove a few adware, but I don't think they were the cause. Is there any way I could monitor the login process and see what's failing.
