Wrong screen relolution when booting up
Posted on 2000-02-27
When my system boots up automatically each morning (Wake on Real Time CLock - via bios) it boots into win98 in 640x480 mode each time. It also sometimes happens when I switch it on manually myself.
I'm using win98, Voodoo 3 graphics card, PII 400 mhz, Super Micro 6SBA motherboard with 128 SD RAM.
I used a Matrox G200 prior to this in Aug last year and had the some problem.
It doesnt seem to happen if the computer is warmed up already, ie if I reboot from the switch or from win98.
What I can add is that I have this special card that collects stock market data via a TV arial via the ISA slot. I dont see why this should have an effect, but when I stopped using the card last year, the problem never happened.
I have the latest software driver for the graphics card. I also spoke to the data card vendor who have never heard of this before.
Has anyone else had the same experience of their system booting into a lower relolution>
