Confused

I am working with a 22" Wide Screen Samsung LCD Flat Screen Monitor.

OS is Vista Home Premium

The Resolution will auto reset to the Lowest Setting Possible.

When I set the Resolution to a higher setting, everything works perfect, but when I reboot the machine the Resolution Auto resets.

The Dell Inspiron 530 Computer has an onboard Video Chipset. Thinking it might be a problem with the Chipset, I replaced the Motherboard and still have the same problem, even after updating the Video Driver.

Dell Support has reviewed all CMOS settings and now tells me, the problem must be the Monitor itself, which I find hard to believe.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Under Control Panel > Administrative Tools > System Configuration

Make sure the "Base video" box is UNchecked.

I searched Help using "base video" in quotes and got the following:

Using System Configuration

. . . (scroll down to the bottom third of the Boot section)

Base video. Boots to the Windows graphical user interface in minimal VGA mode. This loads standard VGA drivers instead of display drivers specific to the video hardware on the computer.
