    I am new to this forum, My name is Marcuso.

    I have been having problems with my computer.

    The problem exists when I turn off the system for more than a couple of hours. My resolution goes haywire, I try to fix it by going into the settings, Does not help. I was told that the problem could be my monitor, but I turned it off for the day, and it fires up fine. I reboot several times, then it fixes itself. Could it be a graphics card problem? It also shows tracks of wheere my mouse has been.
    No one I have talked to has been able to help me, Perhaps someone here has heard of this phenomena. LOL

    Update your video graphics chipset drivers.

    They should be with your CDs that came with the PC, or get a later set from the web page of the (video card / motherboard chipset) maker.

    At this stage I would suspect a corrupt driver, however if its a graphics card (as opposed to a motherboard chipset, for on-board video) then reseat the card in the slot.
