  • Disable Automatic Screen Adjustment

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to disable Automatic Screen Adjustment in
    Windows XP?

    Problem:

    Dell Latitide D800 Max Resolution: 1440 x 1050

    If i set it to: 1280 x 800 and do a reboot, Windows automatically resets it to the highest possible resolution.
    Is there a way to fix it to a lower resolution?

    Hmm, not sure why it's doing that.

    A few questions

    -Has it always done this?
    -Have you installed the latest video driver?
    -Do you have any special video driver utilities? (like an ATI utility?)
    Regards,

      ...or are you running a flat panel with a single native resolution? Flat panels have ONE native resolution and work badly (fuzzy text, blocky graphics) in other resolutions. I suspect that Windows is merely selecting the ONLY sensible resolution for your display.

        The Video card is a NVIDIA chipset, also the NVIDIA tools are installed.
        Could this be the problem?

              Come now, I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 with an ATI video card. I can set it to various resolutions and on reboot it uses the last configured setting.

              Danny, are you using the NVIDIA utility to control the resolution? It's possible that you can setup profiles in the utility for various reasons.
