Hi,

Recently, my pc's display would switch to safe mode resolution (640x300) without warning and hang. I would have to manually turn off and on the pc to get it going again (display would go back to normal after that). This would happen maybe once every few days and has been going on for several weeks.

On one occasion as I was booting the pc back up, there was a warning - cmos battery failure. I had to reconfigure my time and date settings after that. This message hasn't appeared ever since despite the display problem still occuring.

I'm using a Pentium III, 1 GHz machine with 512MB RAM and a onboard SiS 630/730 display adapter. I'm also using windows XP Pro.

I've tried updating the display driver without effect. I've rolled back the display driver and the issue is still there. Any ideas what's causing the display problem?

Regards,
Terence
