Latest Video Driver Update Boots to 800 x 600 res

2008-10-31, 1:47 AM

I did the latest updates from the Lenovo tool. Now when I boot the resolution is really low until I actually log into the computer then it resumes the 1920 x 1200 resolution after a bunch of flickering.

 

Also, on a side note my computer has locked up twice with no response  since the update (4 days).  Nothing shows up in the error logs the machine just hangs with only the ability to move the mouse. Lost hours of work just now so figure I'd post to see if anyone has any information about this.. any ideas?

King2: that's the right driver link for XP, but for Vista they need the Switchable driver.
