Won't hold resolution setting

    Been using Home Premium 64 SP1 on HP Pavilion
    dv7-211 laptop for about 3 months. Still
    using 98SE on two desktops and XP on another
    laptop.

    I'm 75 and my memory has not improved with
    age, so I may not remember everything
    correctly. My best recollection is that I
    didn't have the problem until recently.

    Every time I totally shut down I lose my
    resolution setting. It always returns to the
    lowest resolution.

    I've looked through the other posts and
    didn't spot this kind of problem. Any ideas?

    TIA

    Perhaps your CMOS battery is dead or very weak and needs to be replaced.

  3. Thanks. Never thought of that, perhaps
    because it is only 3 or 4 months old. Is
    there any way to check it?

    Thanks again.
