Resolution won't remain same

I constantly have to reset the resolution everytime I boot up or restart. Why is this? I even selected autoarrange and that doesn't help
Thanks,

Are you sure you are changing the resolution? What resolution are you trying to run?

auto arrange only effects icon placement not screen resolution.

Does your video card/monitor support 1024x768?

Do you get any errors booting up concerning resolution?

What does the res go back to?

When booting up/restarting, the desktop always defaults to 640 x 480.

Answering one out of three question is a good start. How about the rest?

I believe I answered all 3...
1)Does your video card/monitor support 1024x768? I would think the card/monitor supports the 1024x768, otherwise, I wouldn't be staying in this resolution.
2)Do you get any errors booting up concerning resolution? No, I don't get errors.

The third question was what resolution does the screen revert to?

"When booting up/restarting, the desktop always defaults to 640 x 480."

I would delete the display adaptor from device manager, reboot & let windows reinstall it. Don't do it unless you have the drivers ready if things go wrong.

What if the Device Mgr does not show the Display Adapter at all?
I just did a Recovery and the ?/x! thing still doesn't show! What can I do to correct this other than replacing the entire PC!

I re-installed the HP drivers which included the Display Adapter and I still get the 640x480 resolution when I boot up...any other suggestions as to what I can do?
Thanks again,

What kind of monitor is identified in the advanced settings. If you are trying to set the resolution at 1024x768 @32 bit color the issue may be that Windows will not send settings that could damage your monitor.

If the monitor is identified as a plug and play display then try to set it to the model you have. If you have an LCD display nad it came with a CD then install the software.
