    I am running Windows XP and using the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator to control my monitor. Every time I start/restart the computer, it goes back to 1280x1024. I can reset it to 1024x768 and it holds fin, until I restart it. After the inital startup, the desktop appears and it is actually in the correct 1024x768. However, the screen will flash once and then reset back to the 1280 resolution. When I go and check the Intel properties, it has defaulted back to the 1280 even though it was set at 1024 before shutdown.
