Window XP


I played a game that reset my screen resolution to 640 x 480. I want it at 800 x 600 and reset it. Ever since then, when I start my computer, it starts normally in 800 x 600 resolution until the

Windows intro music comes on, then the screen goes black and comes back in 640 x 480

resolution. I have to right click the screen, properties, settings and reset to 800 x 600 or open

control panel, display, settings and reset to 800 x 600. But when the computer is shut down and

restarted again it does the same thing again. Thus I have to reset it each time the computer is

started. How can I fix it so that the default resolution is 800 x 600 as it was before it was changed

by that game?

If you are trying to reset the resolution back to 800 x 600, did you remember to press the reset button If you did press the reset button You might have to restall the video drive again
