Getting rid of unnecessary rebooting

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I am using two 22'screens and a Matrox graphic Card :
Matrox Milleniun P650 LP PCI 64MB DDR Dualhead RoHs VGA ATX-Bracket.
I have the last Matrox Millenium P650 low-profile PCI driver(24.0.179 date: 02.05.2007).
Resolution: 1680x2100; 32 bits; 60 Hz. I am using the two screens in order to have a big display one on the other one. For this purpose I use the software : MATROX PowerDesk-SE for the Matrox Millenium P650 Low-profile PCI;
Settings of the program :
- advanced Matrox display controls :
- powerRes modes
- display mode 1680x1050 @60Hz (GTF)

My computer : Fujisu-Siemens ESPRIMO Edition P2410, AMD Athlon 64X2 4000 +
; 1GB RAM; Win XP Pro

Problem : each time I would like to start-up the computer, the moving dots below
the blue-green-yellow-red microsoft windows XP flag are running for ever, link to right if I do not reboot. After rebooting, I choose on the black window screen "last good setting" and my system is working well for hours. Sometimes I have to reboot two or three times.
Sometimes I see a small white window telling me: For best picture quality, please change resolution to 1680x1050  MENU:Disable   AUTO:Clear !!!
How is it possible to avoid these stupid steps at start-up ?

I have used different softwares,  trying to remove the flaw : XP Startup Cleaner; XoftSpy; 1 Click PC Fix; RegCure ; Xp Tuner; RegistrySmart; jv16 PowerTools and so on: Hopeless....
