Screen Resolutions

by ordep1963 / May 7, 2010 3:07 PM PDT

I have problems with my HPa6457c and screen resolution.It is suppose to be 1068 x 1050 but keeps changing to 1360 x 768 by itself. And when I go to the display settings, it will not show my the option to fix it back to 1068 x 1050. I even had my monitor replace, but it still started doing it again. I have Vista 64 bit home premium in my pc and even reinstall to help fix this problem. I do a complete power drain and this will help , but I should not have to keep doing this.
Anybody have any suggestions and if I upgrade to Windows 7, do you think this might help.

...when you drain the battery and rechaarging [plugged in], there is no problem ? What if you are on battery, fully charged power [unplugged] ?

I am talking about my pc tower not a laptop. I have a 20 screen display for my HP. 99% of the time, when I drain the power from my pc this problem is usually corrected. I even reloaded my os and it started acting up again...

"a 20 screen display"

You need professional help. This is far from a typical system and you need the machine's designers and more to get this working proper.

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?
