    My parents old desktop Compaq PC is having issues with screen resolution. It's not even 100% of the time, but very common upon reboot or resuming from sleep that the resolution extremely wrong. It's not reverting to 600x800 but some crazy vertical stretch.

    I tried reinstalling the video drivers, but that didn't do anything. One thing I find very odd is I can always fix it by going to the screen resolution and just telling the PC to detect the monitor.

    Relevant specs:
    Monitor is Compaq FS7600
    OS: Win 7 Professional
    GPU: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series

    I'd suggest updating to ATI's legacy Vista driver which works well with Windows 7, and supports the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series.

    Go to this page: AMD Catalyst™ Display Driver

    Look at "Option 1 - Full Software Suite" and select "Catalyst Software Suite" which includes the "10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc.exe" Catalyst Control Center and WDM driver.

    Or look at "Option 2 - Individual Downloads" and select the "WDM Integrated Driver" which includes the "10-2_legacy_vista32-64_wdm.exe" WDM driver only.
