When I hook my laptop up to my LCD TV via the VGA cable it always starts off with a resolution of 1280x1024. I change it to my desired setting 1920x1080 and all is well until I reboot the computer and it goes back to 1280x1024.
I am using the LCD TV screen by itself, I have the laptop lid closed.
This just started to happen a few months ago, prior to that the laptop would remember the previous screen resolution setting.
