Annoying intemittent fault whereby the monitor is incorrectly detected as a generic model instead of an LG L192WS and the screen resolution changes to a lower setting which loses a large percentage of the desktop.
I've updated to the latest AMD drivers as that seemed to work for others with a similar problem but to no avail. it takes 5 mouse clicks to open desktop and reset the display to the correct one, but after spending quite a bit to speed up my system I begrudge the time! Any suggestions warmly welcomed...
I had a similar problem on my laptop (Vista 32-bit, nVidia graphics), which eventually disappeared - probably a driver update somewhere. My temporary solution was a batch file to force the resolution to the correct size. I had to download a program called ResSwitch. The command is just:
ResSwitch.exe /width:1440 /height:900
Naturally, change the width and width and height values to the ones you want.
It seems you just have to use the -width and -height switches to set the resolution. Using the command dccmd.exe -width=1440 -height=900 should do the trick. You might also need to specify the refresh rate using -refresh=XXX, where XXX is the desired refresh rate.
Eventually sussed that dc64.exe works from the command prompt having moved the DC folder, but the link in the Start Menu stays at 1024 x 768. Don't see how to change that to 1440 x 900 which would be useful...
Right click on the link in the start menu and select properties. On the Shortcut tab there should be a field labeled "Target". That is the command line that gets executed. Just add the -width and -height switches to that command and that should do it.
