Dual Monitor Setup, secondary monitor always reverts to 800x600 on startup

  1. I recently formated and reinstalled, with a different version of windows xp than I had previously, installed all the same drivers as i had before, and now every time I restart my secondary monitor refuses to remember its settings and always reverts to 800x600, anyone else ever had this problem or know what causes it? its highly annoying. I guess I also switched from an 80 gb ide HD to a 250 gb sata drive as my primary drive, I dont see how that could cause it however. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes ive had this problem at a school I work at..

    the difference there is it was a widescreen laptop

    everytime the laptop and projector were switched off

    it would project with parts missing and back at 800x600

    but when I put a standard laptop on it was fine..

    never resloved the problem tho..

    would be interesting to know how :)
