Display Resolution Headache
(Sorry, not sure where to put this, and have tried to do a search)
I have a weird problem that I think is being caused by a conflict between an Intel graphics driver and the built-in display settings.
New Toshiba Tecra laptop build. Resolution logged in as local admin defaults to 1366 x 768. ***Seemed to be the same for domain admin.*** Graphics adaptor is Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD. Running XP Professional SP3 (XP downgrade supported by Toshiba).
***On further test, my memory is wrong - the domain admin is reset to 800 x 600 on first logon too.
However, hit a problem with ordinary users. When they log in, the display resets itself after log in to 800 x 600, which looks dreadful. Their profiles are mandatory. However, the display resolution seesm to be independent of this. I tried opening the Intel properties from the taskbar when logged in as pupil, and reset the resolution. Worked fine, and stayed after logoff. But I can't do this for all the pupil users! I've also found that the Intel properties are set to dual (clone) display.
Have tried the following:
Logged in as local admin, set the Intel Properties to single display and correct resolution. No effect on pupil user - still dual and 800 x 600.
Logged in as domain admin and did the same, with no effect.
Looked at trying to get second monitor set to correct resolution in display properties (not Intel) but wouldn't let me, and don't have a new enough external monitor to attach and play around with.
Seem to be going round in circles.
Anyone had this and can put me out of my misery?
