Hi folks,

I am using a Dell laptop with Windows OS installed.

I observed that, when starting new programs gets started automatically and my screen resolution changes with desktop icons and size. 

The screen resolution changes form 1024 x 768 to 640 x 480. Although I can changes those setting ,but unable to save them and make them stay. This happens every time I boot my system.

I have an ATI Rage 128 Ultra Video Card and the also updated Video Drivers. I believe the Video card driver is working fine.

I tried my best in getting screen resolution but unable to save those settings.

I have no clue and if someone can suggest me how to get this done.

Thanks.
