Resolution Changing on boot

by garyea / November 4, 2004 7:09 PM PST

I am running Win XP Pro with SP2 installed Athlon 1700+ 752mb ram. Anti virus,adaware,spybot,etc.etc. On boot the screen resolution has changed from 1024 x 768 to 600 x 400. It was so large that I could not get at any of the buttons or move the screen far enough up to apply the change and ok it. I had to boot into safe mode and do a system restore. This happened 3 times so far in about as many months, also every once in a while when I boot it brings up a logon screen asking for a password and has the user name already in there. I hit ok without entering a password and it boots. It will do this 2 maybe 3 times then the login screen will stop coming up for a while again untill the next time. Can anyone help? Thank You Gary Aguiar

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
