    I have a laptop computer....Compaq Presario Modle 12XL300
    I had Win ME on it and just upgraded to Win XP. I am having problem with the Screen going to the smaller size when I log in.
    I have set the screen size resolution to 800 X 600 pixels in Display several times, but when I log back on it has gone back to 640 by 480 pixels....( which is too small ). I have the computer set up for two computer admin's....me & my wife. When she logs into her side everything is ok. I can't figure out whats going on.
    My Display Monitor says it is on ( Trident Video Accelerator CyberBlade-i1. The same as my wifes side. Both our color quality reads ( Highest 32 bits ).

    I might note that some times my screen goes large to small to large again.... but mostly stays small. Her side always stays large.

    Do you know what may be wrong. Dave.

    Hi There!

    If you're login is FUBAR and wife's is good, then you may have a corrupt user profile.

    Try moving your personal data to a folder on the root of theC Drive, then wipe out the profile and re-create it.

    Hope this helps!

    Good Luck!
