    Resolution changing on user logon

    Last week I made new images for each of our computers that are still in use and I have already found a problem. When a domain user logs onto a laptop the resolution is put down to 800x600 but as the local administrator I have set the resolution to 1366x768. The laptops are running Intels graphics and media control panel which also says 1366x768. This only happens on our laptop images so the issue isn't GPO settings and these accounts are used on our previous image for these laptops.

    Yep - plus one for QRES here. Use it as part of my SCCM task sequence at the end of the build and on logon/off as well. Has a commandline interface for scripting

    thanks for the advice but I would like to find out why it keeps changing, when the user logs on the resolution is fine at first, they have a few seconds where the resolution is fine then it changes just after the desktop has displayed!

    I've just tryed moving a test student account into a user group which has the ability to change settings, logged in and the resolution once again went back to 800x600 which I then changed to the correct resolution. The user is now back in their restricted student group and the resolution remains correct at 1366x768 but only for that student account. Shouldn't these profiles all be using the local settings as there is no GPO settings a resolution rather then being individual users local specified resolution?



    Update:
    Having restarted the computer the student test account has reset to 800x600

    might be worth checking the profiles start menu\programs\startup for scripts that set res (so qres or similar)
    anf dor that matter login scripts
