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.

SOURCE: screen resolution changes after rebooting computer

i) my wiser advice would be, just dont mess with this bug try, reload your OS or format your Windows Xp    or reload you OS Freshlly...

   before doing this try to run antivirus, spyware scan by using an good security system(such as bit defender from microsoft, norton, avg.....) fully on your complete system(it may longer time but it is safe)

 i'm sure that this problem will not persist after this try to purchase an antivirus program to avoid any problems of such type....


Thanking you

Cannot find download for, SM Bus Controller Driver


I know this is answering an old question... but I have searched and searched and just solved this problem myself. Hopefully someone else will find this question and my answer.

My emachines T3504 is an Intel motherboard and CPU, with ATI chipset and some other parts. Anyways, at the downloads section of the intel website, if you search for desktop motherboard D101GGC it will bring up the downloads for that board, you choose your OS, which for me is XP home, and there they are!! the drivers needed, and the one for that stupid SM bus controller problem.
Chipset: ATI Radeon* Xpress 200 Installs the chipset driver version 5.10.1000.7 for Intel® Desktop Boards with the ATI Radeon* Xpress 200 chipset.

Unable to change color depth...


Ok I think i found your problem. You don't need to install any drivers.

Switch your display to 256 colors To switch your display to 256 colors
Some games and other software programs require that your monitor be set to 256 colors, or they run better in 256 colors. Many of those programs will switch your monitor to 256 colors automatically when you start the program. For those that don't, follow the steps below if you want to switch the display temporarily while the game or program is running.
  1. On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Compatibility tab.
  3. Select the Run in 256 colors check box.
  • The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the program.
  • Try switching to 256 colors if your software program shows the wrong color or the graphics redraw slowly.
  • If your software program appears in a small window in the center of your screen, you can increase its size by changing your screen resolution temporarily. Follow the procedure above, but in step 3 select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your screen resolution will revert to its previous resolution when you close the program.
  • The Compatibility tab is available only for programs or games located on your computer's hard disk. It is not available if the program is stored on a floppy disk, compact disk, or a network.

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.
