Every time I start up my computer, (running Windows XP Home edition) after a minute my screen resolution changes to the lowest setting. My slider has only three settings. I click apply, the screen goes black for a few seconds, screen returns and I click OK. Problem solved? NO. I go through this "fix" every time I shut down my computer and turn it back on. Could my Monitor be the source of the problem?
Please help,

In the Start menu, type msconfig and hit Enter. In the Boot tab, uncheck Base Video and exit and reboot.
