Default laptop res problem

ok i asked this before with no real reply. every time my laptop comes back from like sleep or hibernate mode my resolution goes back to the biggest it can. if i start up from being shut off it is fine. i have reinstalled the drivers for the graphics card already and it still does it. also ive noticed my mouse will skip when im loading a lot of images online from web pages. any ideas?

Erm, i've fought that battle before with my dad's computer.. and eventually I won.

I have no idea how though.. I would just keep changing the resolution back and it stopped bothering me...

Maybe a virus? Run crapcleaner and (you don't need to but go ahead and run) reg cleaner and some virus scan (I had AVG FREE)

I think that was around when he was having problems with IE. I don't know, his computer is so S. BAD! It's one of those $400 from walmart.. the use-for-ayear and throw away. It's been 6 years :P That means this computer is 8 years old! wow!

And the mouse was skipping too..

Have you uninstalled anything lately or installed something? Maybe something you say will refresh my memory.

Yeah well, it could be a very rare problem. What I'd look for is maybe a BIOS flash, that may fix the problem, or maybe you'll have to end up getting either updated drivers or fiddle with it. Have you tried with XP?
