Hi.
The screen resolution sometimes changes by itself at boot-up.

Maybe 1 out of each 10 boot-ups, the screen resolution comes on as 1280 x 720. When I go to change it to 1600 x 900 (recommended) it's already set to 1600 x 900, except the screen res is actually 1280 x 720 (very large, missing icons) I have to set it to a lower res, keep it, then set it back to 1600 x 900 keep it and all is well. It happens when monitor power supply is always on and monitor shuts off to sleep mode. It also happens when monitor power is always on.
Thanks in advance, latsh

Sounds to me like you may be using the wrong video driver package.

The last full set of drivers listed at the Asus support site...is for Vista. None of the drivers listed for Windows 7 include chipset drivers.

Worth a look, http://www.pcpitstop.com/drivers/download/NVIDIA~GeForce~7050~%2F~NVIDIA~nForce~620i.html .

Thanks, Louis.
I went to the pcpitstop link as you suggested and downloaded / installed the driver.

The driver I was using, I downloaded from NVIDIA:
05/15/2012 ver. 8.17.13.142

The driver I downloaded (and installed) from pcpitstop links:
08/29/2012 ver. 8.17.12.9610

Interesting: The new driver has a lower version number, but later release date.
So far - so good after a few reboots. I will have to give it a chance on several cold boots. I'll keep my fingers crossed, and post if it's a fix or not.
Thanks again, Louis and have a nice day.
Regards,
bill48nj1

Be sure to let us know how it's looking after a bit of time :).

The "latest" drivers are not necessarily the "best" drivers for a device, IME. If they work, no need to bother with "updating" or installing others, IMO.
