Why would my display mode keep changing?

Specs: Windows XP
My display mode keeps changing on it's own while I am in the middle of doing something and also when I first boot up my computer. I have it set at "true color 800X600" and it automatically resets itself to 640X480.
What would cause this to happen?

Why are you running the resolution at 800x 600? Do you have a tiny monitor?

Try updating your graphics drivers.

I HAVE MY DISPLAY MODE SET AT 800x600 BECAUSE ALL MY PAGES COME IN EXACTLY ON THE SCREEN AND NOT WHERE I HAVE TO SCROLL BACK AND FORTH TO READ SOMETHING. I HAVE A DELL FLAT SCREEN MONITOR THAT MY STEPDAD GAVE ME AND THE SOUND DOESN'T WORK. IF I CHANGE THE DISPLAY MODE TO A DIFFERENT SETTING EITHER EVERYTHING IS OVERSIZED OR UNDERSIZED.
