Netbook - Unwanted "Display Settings Too Low" Message
My school has recently purchased some Dell Latitude N2100 Netbooks with the intention of student usage. We have installed Windows XP onto them and downloaded/updated all of the latest drivers (graphics included) from the Dell website.
The native resolution for these netbooks are 1024x576. However, every time we logon (local admin, domain admin, local (test) user, domain user aka "student"), a Red circled Cross pops-up on the notification task-bar area, with the following balloon text:
"Display Settings - Your computer's screen resolution and color depth are currently set to a very low level. You can get a better picture by increasing these settings. To do this, click this balloon."
If we click the balloon we get the option to let Windows automatically correct the screen resolution and color depth (Yes or No buttons) and a check box to "In the future, do not show this dialogue box". If we do let Window do this, the computer changes the screen to 800x600 - stretched horizontal width and a vertical scrolling-desktop - an unsatisfactory change.
We could choose "No" and tick the "do not show" again. However that option will solve the problem for the current user only. As we expect lots of students to logon to these netbooks, some of them will definitely choose to get Windows change to the horrible screen resolution.
We prefer not to disable any/all balloon-tips becuase some tips are very informative and (anyway) Microsoft's Fix-It, likewise, only works on the Current User and not on the whole "Local Machine".
I hope that there is a fix or override for this unwanted notification as I guess that other people have had similar experiences with different netbooks - preferably in the school environment.
-- Many Thanks
