Video/Monitor Drivers not Sticking after a cold boot!!

    My friend has a gf4 4200 with a fresh windows xp install, and is using the
    45.23 drivers. The problem is after he shuts the PC down for the night and
    turns it on in the morning, the monitor is plug and play and the resolution
    is changed to default. If he reboots a 2nd time right after that everything
    is fine and back to normal. I had him add/remove the drivers and try some
    of the beta ones, but the result is the same no matter what driver set is
    used. Any info would be appreciated...

    Do you have Windows XP as your operating system? If so do you have SP1 and
    Direct X 9.0 installed? If you do NOT have SP1 and Direct X 9.0 installed
    then probably the resolution is changing back to default. You have several
    alternatives available if you do not wish to install SP1 and Direct X 9.0.
    There are several refresh rate fix tools on the internet you can choose at
    your own risk.

    Thanks for the reply
    Yes SP1 and DX 9 are installed, as well as all the windows updates. It's
    not a refresh problem really, it just doesn't remember the monitor on first
    boot. On the 2nd boot everything is fine, very weird problem.
