On startup windows displays in 800X600px

by TNeedy / November 21, 2006 1:01 AM PST

I have a Dell Dimension 8300 w/ XP Home, 75g, 1000ram, Pent 4. When I boot up in the AM, Windows displays in 800 X 600px like it's in safe mode. I've run Norton's Anti-virus, Ad-Aware, Spybot SD and get nothing. What could be the problem?? T

(NT) Just an idea. Install the video card's driver.

Uninstall the card from the device manager. Reboot your machine. Feed it the video drivers upon restarting. Reboot again and the drivers should be loaded.
