Resolution Change after Locking

Whenever I lock my computer, the resolution changes to something very high like 1024/768. Anyone else has that issue?

Hi kingamoon..... welcome to the se7en forums.

you say it defaults to something higher rather than lower..??

what is the screens native resolution / what size is the screen.

what GPU do you have, please fill out your system specs at the bottom of your post or via the userCP.

Yah. It's time for me to get a more powerful video card

I'm not trying to run 800x600. When I click on CTRL+ALT+DEL to lock my PC, the resolution changes from 1920x1200 to 800x600. I don't know why that happens.

THanks in advance

I am having the same issue

did you ever get a resolution to this problem.

Every time I lock my screen with CTRL-ALT-DEL the screen resolution on my 2nd screen changes back to 800x600.

thanks
