Problem adjust screen resolutions

On my old dell inspiron 8600, after I installed win7 ultimate and update the video driver, I can adjust the highest screen resolution to 1920 x 1200.
but everytime when I restart the laptop, it will go back to 1280 x 1024
I will need to manually adjust that back.

Does anyone know how to fix that problem?

My laptop is using NVIDIA Geforce FX Go5200 card.

Any help will be helpful. Thx a tons.

It might be set to go to 1280 x 1024 resolution in the driver software?
