Re: screen resolution
After you have re-set your screen resolution the screen usually goes black
then the screen re-appears in the new resolution. At this point Vista starts
counting down (I think its around 30 seconds) giving you time to view he
changes to see if you like them. You should also see a box asking you 'do
you wish to keep these changes?' At this point you need to click the OK
button to confirm that you wish to keep your new resolution settings. If you
click No the the screen reverts back to normal. It also does the same thing
if you allow the 30 second time out to expire without pressing the OK
button.

RE: screen resolution
286) I have the same problem and I have pressed the appropriate buttons to
save the settings. I purchased a laptop in January with Vista and until the
last update (KB937was able to keep the settings between reboots. As of last
weekend I'm loosing the settings every time I turn the machine on.

I'm very disappointed with this last change and I still can't get over the
lack of a smaller resolution being available as I'm used to using very small
type. This latest issue is just another issue with Vista. I'm lloking for
another operating system as Vista is not for me.

Thanks
