display settings change after reboot

Thinkpad T400: 7417CTO

Windows XP Pro w/SP3

No docking station

I configure the extended desktop for external monitor and thinkpad LCD (both 1280 x768).

After I reboot for the first few seconds I see the display as pre-boot, then the displays are reconfigured for

single image at 800x600.


What is causing the display settings to change? 

How do I prevent the display settings from changing?


Thank you,

Re: display settings change after reboot

hey p26grinz,

without the external monitor and after setting the display, will the setting remain ?

have you tried uninstalling the graphic driver from your unit and then testing it with generic driver ?
