Hey,

I recently changed my monitor and my display settings wont change automatically. Each time I restart the computer, I must right click-->properties--->settings and put in the right screen display size.

How can I make it the new default?

Thank you,
Foku

I'd suggest updating your monitor's drivers.

Control Panel>Display>Settings. Make your change there. Click "Apply". You'll be prompted to save changes. Click "yes" and then OK. To help with your monitor drivers we need to know the make and model #

Yes, I have tried that approach but nothing works...

Im thinking maybe somehow, my old drivers are still installed? Is there a way to check? When I installed that new monitor, it was just plug and play...no drivers to install

For those of you who run into the same problem...I removed my current drivers but apparantly windows stores a copy of your drivers on system32 and upon restart it re-installed my drivers and I was able to configure them for the new monitor!


Thanks again
