Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire 5720 with an Intel 965 GMA which I have just switched from Vista to XP SP3.
The only thing that isn't working is that when I boot the computer the resolution starts at 640X480, then if i try to change it through windows display settings nothing happens, and only through the intel GMA icon in the tray can i alter the resolution, but after reboot it reverts back to the lowest setting.
I have tried the drivers from the acer and intel sites, installing both in and out of safe mode, tried a registry alteration to remember settings from "kelly's korner" which is listed as a solution in many other sites.
I cannot figure out what is wrong, nor can most of the internet it seems, I would greatly appreciate some help.
The RAM module/s may be faulty or needs reseating because the video card grabs some of the system RAM. If you got two RAM modules then swap them around in the DIMM slots.
Try deleting/disable the video driver or change it to standard VGA.
If you can uninstall the video driver then OK.
Reboot the laptop and reinstall the video driver and it usually requires a reboot for the driver to take effect.
Also try connecting an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, power up the monitor first then the laptop. The video should automatically divert to the external monitor. Then try and change the screen resolution. If this doesn't work then there is a possibility the Video card might be faulty.
As a last resort reinstall Windows it may fix your problem.
I've run out of further ideas, good luck.
