Windows 7: Monitor resolution problem...

Monitor resolution problem...


I have win 7 installed and have a problem with the monitor resolution. When the PC
starts up, it goes to a resolution of 640 x 480 and every time I have to change it.
What i would like to do is to have it start up at 1680 x 1050, which is the native
resolution. I don't know if this is a driver problem with the monitor or graphic card.

Any help would be appreciated.

After you change the settings are you clicking apply and ok .

And when you restart it still goes back to the other?

Update your drivers, and check to make sure that you removed all old drivers.

Is your card compatible with W7?
