  • Resolution problem during boot

    I've used and couldn't find anything, so here's my problem:

    My resolution during bootup (in the POST up to the Windows logo) is too big for my monitor. It never happened like this before, but all the sudden it started. The text runs off the screen. I'm using the Datalux 10.4". Any idea of how to get the resolution to fit to the screen at boot? It's annoying because it also happens any time I try to install XP. The text will run right off the screen.

    Anyone have this problem before?

      Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling your video drivers?

        Video drivers have nothing to do with it, since it happens only before windows starts. When windows starts its fine. I've also tried 3 video cards.

          So just BIOS stuff is not displaying correcty, but the Windows bootup screen displays fine? Did you flash your BIOS recently?

            Which motherboard do you have? If it's one of the Epia ones, have you gone into the BIOS and set the screen type from CRT to LCD? That fixed some 'OVER RANGE' problems I had w/ my Lilliput 7", and it's possible that the reason I was getting those was because of the video signal doing something like what you described.

              I'll check the bios.. havent flashed it recently. I'm running a p3 667 on a miniATX board. I think the board came from a HP.
