Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Laptop keeps reverting to 800x600 resolution

\015 I have an Acer Travelmate 4730 running on Windows XP which I recently connected to a projector for a powerpoint presentation. My problem is that now it keeps reverting to 800x600. I can change it through properties to 1024x768 but when I next logon it reverts back to 800x600 every time. When logging on it initially look right but then the screen does a really quick flicker and it has changed to 800x600. Please help. Thanks in advance. Shelley\015
