Every time I switch on my computer, the sceen resolution is at it's lowest possible (with a 16bit colour), and I have to reset it. Can anybody tell me why?

Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Can you tell us exactly how you change the resolution? I mean a detailed explanation, click for click.

And then when you reboot it changes back?

That info will help us figure it out!

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

Hi frankenstein
When I start my computer the resolution is always 480x640 so I right click desktop>left click properties>settings>alter my settings>left click apply> OK. That puts me right until I close or restart, then i have to go through the whole routine again --
thanks for the interest
