**ANNOYING** Res settings resetting with every reboot

Hello,

Im on a g50vt-x1 laptop with a 9800gs. I was unhappy with the stock 179.14 drivers and had some performance problems, so I upgraded to the official laptop driver release from nvidia and performance has been great, however... im running an external 22 inch monitor as a primary, and my task bar on the laptop screen. With EVERY reboot the primary and task bar go back to laptop and the res gets lowered from 1680x1050 to 1280x1024.

Its very odd, as soon as the welcome screen from vista goes away, I can see the desktops just fine, then it flickers a bunch of times and it resets everything :)

Please help, I need to solve this...its really annoying.

Such problems haven't plagued me in a long time, I'm using an 22" external all the time. Did you use Driver Sweeper after you uninstalled the original driver?

yeah,

I noticed something curious though, if I disable the nvidia service from the services tab on msconfig and restart, the res and other monitor settings will stay like they are :)

Its very odd....is that service really needed? doesnt seem to affect anything else.

If I enable it everything starts crapping out again.

well i updated to the latest driver release and the problem is gone... I reverted back to the official nvidia release just to be sure and it started messing up again... Looks like im staying on the 180 release, hope they do well on gaming...

Thanks anyways

Merry Christmas all btw! :)

It's the nvidia service. As far as we can tell, it's main function is to save your settings and restore them on the next boot.

Assuming you hadn't disabled it, something else must have messed it up. Glad it's working!

Try 179.28 - it works fine for me on external single monitor - be it 22" monitor (1680x1050) or HDTV via HDMI (1080i).
