I'm having a problem with my monitor. I'm postive its not a driver issue since it happens on multiple computers.

About half the time, when i actually completely shut down and then boot up the screen resolution resets itself to 640x480 or 800x600 (one of the two). Its a older Dell monitor (E773c). This has been happening on both my PC and my Mac. On my Mac, it usually shows the display as a E773c, but when i have this problem, its just listed as "VGA display". When its working right, it only lets my set the res up to 1280x1024 @ 60Hz, the way it should. But when i have this problem it lists resolutions way above what my monitor can use.

On my PC, when i have this problem (same exact problem) i reset the res to where i want it, and about 75% of the time after i reset it, it starts reading the monitor the way it should.

Is there anyway to fix this?
