Ok so in the last week, when i come to the Vista Ultimate login screen my screen resolution has been downgraded to something like 1280x1024 or 800x600 automatically, very arbitrarily. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesnt.

I have the latest drivers for my graphics card (XFX GTX 280 XXX) and my monitor is a 22" Samsung Syncmaster T220 which natively displays 1680x1050.

As i said, this has happened in the last week, so it could be a software change or something? No hardware changes have been made to my machine for at least 2 months.

Any suggestions would be great, thanks guys.

Maybe you should check that the GPU is correctly inserted and not is "shaking", and after that reinstall the drivers, as Outlander said :)

It could also be the driver for your monitor. Not sure if your using a generic one or if there's one that came with your monitor. Might want to look into that as well.
