recently my old monitor packed up (billowed out a whole ton of smoke and caught fire!) and in its place i now have a wide screen HD TV.

now my problem is every time I start my machine there seems to be a lottery going on.

most times my comp will have the highest resollution possible set at 1440x900 and yet other times it is 1600x1200

is there someway i can fix it so it stays one way or the other?
