Hello,



I'm having problems setting my screen resolution. Here's the problem:



My main monitor is an HP Compaq LA2205wg, which has a resolution of 1680x1050. I've used this one for about six years now, and it always ran on 1680x1050.

Two weeks ago, I added a second monitor. This one, an Acer v196wl, has a resolution of 1440x900.

When I added this second monitor, everything went quite well. The main monitor ran on 1680x1050, and I could 'park' google chrome tabs on the smaller monitor. It nicely extended my screen.



That went well for a few times. Up until I started my pc up again, turning the smaller screen on first, and then the main one. Then my view suddenly had an 800x600 resolution. I tried everything I could, but eventually, I was forced to do a small system reboot to force it back to 1680x1050. That worked.

Since then I've been on a little holiday for three days, so today I started my pc up again. It, again, gave me an 800x600 resolution. I can't do a system reboot anymore, because it doesn't have any backup points before this happened.

I can set the resolution on 1600x1200, but that's not what I want. Besides, the smaller monitor won't work on that set resolution (and it does on 1680x1050).



So what can I do about this?

I have an HP Pro 3400 Series MT desktop computer, with a built-in graphics card. Windows 7 Professional.
