When Windows goes into sleep mode and wakes up it resizes the montor to low resolution. It does not allow me to resize the screen in the control panel. I need to reboot. then some times it comes back in high resolution and some time not, but in that case I can resize the screen to high reslution. How do I stop Visat from screwing with the reslution?

You probably either do not have the correct graphics drivers installed or have the wrong screen refresh rate for your monitor. Make sure you have the correct graphics card drivers and have enough memory to support it and set the correct refresh rate (for LCDs use tthe default 60 Hz).

Thanks, but its running off the main board, and claims to have the correct driver and Hzs. I'm going to try to set the virtual memory higher than the auto setting seems to be running it. The odd thing is the screen reset is an intermittent problem that happens almost once a day but not every time the computer wakes up.
