I have a core 2 duo E6550 and a DG33FB motherboard computer with 3GB of ram and runs on Windows 7 Premium.

Sometimes when I start the computer, it takes very long to boot and when it does, the screen resolution goes to 1024x768 (real resolution is 1440x900).

I cannot change it to the right resolution because it doesn't appear in the list.

Once I restart it, it comes back to it's real resolution.
Please note that it does not always take very long to boot, only sometimes.

Is this a hardware problem that is slowly getting worse?
Please suggest what I should do about it.

Do you logged in on different user accounts? But most likely its a hardware compatibility issue.

I cannot change it to the right resolution because it doesn't appear in the list.

The monitor and videocard model or specs. would determine the compatibility resolution matching video output capability. If the videocard(vice versa) supports the described resolution (1440 x 900) and the monitor (1024 x 768)do not, then the native resolution would be the one with lower graphic output.

I'm beginning to think it's a problem with some fans. This problem occurs only when I boot the computer first time in a day.

Is there some problem that occurs when the computer is cold?

Just as a wild guess...I would reinstall the chipset drivers...then uninstall/reinstall the video drivers.

New Developments. When I booted today, the problem ocurred.

I started Speccy and it showed a Generic non - PNP monitor instead of the real name(samsung something).

I have reinstalled the graphic drivers. Will reply if the problem persists or not.
