My screen resolution resets/reverts to lowest on startup

  1. #11


    Yes. The NVIDIA control panel is available so there is acceleration.

    If everything is resetting to the lowest size, check to make sure you are not being logged into a &^&%$ "temporary profile" - It will tell you this as you log on, it will say "Preparing Windows" instead of logging you in.

    Whoa, it stopped doing it! Now I go native when I boot up

    If only I knew what I did. I did re-installed my video drivers but they didn't seem to fix the problem immediately. I also remembered playing some video games too. I also tried changing the resolution in the NVIDIA control panel. I also went into the windows boot options where you can boot into safe mode, etc, but I didn't do anything there. I also did a windows update, but all it was is just a patch for .NET.

    Well that's all the things that I remember doing. I'm sorry if someone else is having the same problem and can't figure out how to fix it

    Go back to the Nvidia Control Panel and check for "HDCP" - See if that is on and running. Also check your "PhysX" settings, which should be set to Auto. Also, go to the :Adjust Desktop Size and Position" panel and see if you have checked "Override Scaling Mode set by Games and Programs" - Uncheck that if checked.

    Oh, well it stopped working again. All those settings are at their defaults.

    It just sounds like something is overriding your desktop settings and setting it back to the lowest res. You have any games that change the resolution? maybe it';s setting it back to the lowest setting on exit. How about startup programs, what you got going?

    What's with all of those "File Missing" on those startup items? Also, VMware is loading, does that need to run at startup? You should try disabling all of those, see if it is still booting to the lowest res. You don't have to run any nVidia helper apps on startup.
