    I have an HP/Compaq DC7600 slim desktop computer with an integrated Intel 82945G chipset running Windows 7 X64. The machine runs great, but for some reason after waking from sleep, Windows "forgets" that it has a PnP monitor, and defaults to 1024X768.

    The monitor is an AOC Envision L19W861. It's a combination LCD TV/Monitor with a VGA input. The computer connects to it through a standard VGA cable.

    The only way to fix it is to detect the display again in the control panel, at which point the LCD monitor will display "out of range." I will then have to sleep and wake up the machine to get my display working properly.

    I've downloaded the absolute latest drivers from Intel (september 2009) and the problem persists.

    My question is: is there a way to FORCE Windows to always display a particular display resolution / refresh rate / color depth?

    I actually just installed win 7 ultimate on my old latitude D800 and every thing works fine except this resolution issue.
    I connect my laptop to an external 21 inch samsung monitor and each time I restart my computer, the resolution changed back to 1024*768. I have to manually change it to 1600*1200. My video card is N Geforce 4 and I can't find vista/7 driver for it.

    Anyone know how to resolve this issue?

    thanks,

    it is really hard to say but it sounds like either a windows standalone bug or a bug that has to deal with windows and your guy's graphics cards. I keep my res alone and I have no issue at all. This is with an N geforce 9800 GTX+ Though.

    I believe you can use PowerStrip
