    I made some changes for power saving. But it made everything lg. and pages would not work right. So I changed resolutions settings to 1024/760. Clicked apply and restarted pc. When I opened a program. All of a sudden everything went lg. again- resolutions back to lowest setting. It keeps doing this. How do I keep the resolutions settings @ 1024/760 ? Help...

    I had the same effect on my old system. It wasn't a real problem for me because it only happened in full screen programs and mainly games as long as they were running, and once I closed them down windows reverted to my regular screen resolution.

    Is it the same case with your system, or is it doing it and doesn't change back to its custom screen resolution once you close down the full screen programs?

    Also, I'm not sure why would you need to restart the pc when changing the resolution.
    Is it usually like this for your system? If so then I'm afraid that I'm not familiar with this kind of a system.
