Screen Resolution

Hi, I have been having a problem with my screen resolution. One moment it's fine then the next moment I restart my computer it suddenly goes all BIG.
I tried to log on and checked the screen resolution (right click desktop>screen resolution) and it's 1280 x 1024, but it is usually something higher than that. I am not sure if the computer or the screen has a problem.
