Vista - monitor display settings not retained

  plan-man 17:24 15 Jun 2008

I have a year old Mesh PC running Vista(+SP1) with a 22" Mirai Monitor which has the optimum display of 1680 x 1050 pixels. The graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT. When I set the display to this setting and click 'apply' it displays it fine, but next time I switch on the PC frequently another setting is displayed and I have to reset it again. Occasionally it does display correctly at start up. Does anyone have any ideas why it should not retain the settings last displayed? I have no problems with my other PC (running XP) which shares the same monitor.
