Screen resolution changes after rebooting computer

I have an eMachines T6212 running AMD64 Athlon 3200+, Windows XP & a 19'' Mace ATI RADEON Xpress 200 Series monitor.
A couple of months ago I picked up a bug? apparently that changes the screen resolution from the desired 1024X724? to 600x?. After rebooting I then have to reset the screen resolution to 1024x... And every time I reboot it's the same thing.

This is very likely more info than you wanted, but do you have any way of fixing this irritating problem?

Appreciate your help,

Jarey Hendrickson

Restart you computer in safe mode (press F8 when you turn it on) select boot with networking update your antivirus and do a full scan than scan for spyware. This might take care of the "bug" that is doing this to your computer.

Video is sporadic. Will work at first but if any


This Presario uses the 256 MB dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon X600 Video Display card according to the manufacture's website. Also this system came from HP with Windows XP or Windows Vista.

This may be a driver issue. Dealing with video driver issues can be difficult, but there are tools that can help.

If you are using Windows, boot into Safe Mode by pressing the "F8" key during initial startup. You will be presented with the option screen with many choices. Pick Safe Mode without networking.

After a second, Windows will boot into Safe Mode. From there go to the Control Panel and then to Add Remove Programs (XP) or Programs (Vista & Windows 7). Find the program(s) from ATI including

- ATI Software Uninstall Utility
- ATI Catalyst Control Center
- ATI Display Driver

These may prompt you to reboot after each removal, please select a manual reboot, or reboot at a later time.

Once all the ATI items have been removed, restart the computer. The system will reboot and it will load a generic driver. The screen may look different as the resolution has changed. This is normal.

Go to Softpedia and download Driver Cleaner to finish removing the drivers as they are still cached in the system. The link is here at http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/Driver-Cleaner-Professional-15.shtml

Install and run this tool to finish the removal of the cached ATI Driver files. The screen may flicker, this is normal.

After completing the installation, restart the machine again.

When the reboot has completed go to ATI to obtain the latest driver here at:

NOTE: If you are using Vista, please make sure to obtain the correct driver for the 32 bit or 64 bit operating systems. This information can be found by right clicking on "Computer" in the Start Menu, then selecting "Properties". Once this is up there will be displayed the related information on your system. Look specifically for "System Type" and it will read "32-bit Operating System" or "64-bit Operating System"

(Windows XP) http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_xp.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.19&lang=English

(Vista 32 Bit)
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_vista32.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.19&lang=English

(Vista 64 Bit)
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_vista64.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.19&lang=English

Select the Catalyst Software Suite. It is a large file and will require time to down load. Save the file to the computer. Once you have it you will need to run it. Installation will run then ask to reboot.

Reboot your system.

You may notice again the screen flickers. This is normal and the machine may also be slow for the first few mins after reboot. After a few minuets have passed you can adjust the screen resolution by right clicking on empty space on the desktop and selecting "Properties" (XP), then the "Settings" tab or "Screen Resolution" (Vista). The factory specs for the Presario are WXGA+ (1440x900) max resolution.

After adjusting resolution I suggest going to getting the latest version of DirectX (DX 9c Feb 2010) from Microsoft here at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en

This may also be a large file depending on what the installer needs and will require time to download.

This should complete the driver installation.

The Driver Cleaner tool can be removed now form the computer.

Yellow question on sm bus controller, pci device and video controller


For Emachines W3503, download the chipset drivers for ATI Radeon® Xpress 200 at http://e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket775/D101GGC_downloads.shtml which provides all drivers for this model of computer.

This resolves Sm Bus Controller driver problem.

Also a good tool can be driver detective for emachines http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/eMachines/W-Series/W3503/22605/22758/37169/Drivers.aspx

If you are recieving "Error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw." while trying to play Diablo 2, Warcraft III, or World of Warcraft, it is because direct draw has been disabled. I reenabled mine by installing the catalyst at http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html for Windows XP Media Center Edition - Radeon - Radeon X300 Series.. Then use the Catalyst Control Center to renable DirectDraw.

You must uninstall your previous video card drivers before installing the new card, especially if they were nVidia drivers.
