Windows 7: Startup issue

Window 7 home x64
Startup issue

Any idea why since I discovered that my monitor with a 1280 x 768 resolution looks way better, problem is when I reboot the computer the image is over scanned so much the taskbar is completely gone. I have to set it to 1024 x 768 (bad picture) and back to 1280 x 768 and I have a perfect desktop. If I remember to set it back to 1024 x 768 before I shutdown itís a little easier, but I never do.

If your video card is the one the specs listed in your profile. I would say to open up CCC (catalyst Control center) and check the monitor options. Then check in the scaling options menu and move the slider to fit it on the desktop then when you have it how you like click apply. I have to do this every time on my flat screen since it comes in a bit zoomed every time I would say reinstall drivers or did a clean install. After that it just stuck and the screen looks correct now on my flat screen. For me it's in my digital flat panels but for you it might be a monitor since I use a tv for my computer setup. Not completely sure if it will fix the issue but this fixed it for me. Worth a try I would say.

I also us a TV as a monitor. I did figure out that it was the TV and to fix it I switch the input on the tv back and forth.

Noise issue on startup - possible fan issue?
Hi all, Got my new PC mid Jan so wasn't expecting any issues. However in the last week startup has become a noisy process. The best description is of a grind/rattle which only lasts a few minutes and then settles down. I suspect it's an issue with a fan, though which one I am not sure....
