    We've got a dell laptop and desktop. on the laptop there are two users each running a different display resolution. when switching useres the display settings keep up and everybody is happy. on the dell desktop the resolution dosent follow. if you change it in one, the others copy it. Any idea as to why?

    both computers are vista home premium and all accounts are admin.

    One of the users is probably inheriting the default user profile. Delete the user profile of the person who is having problems, then create a new user, called whatever.. then make the changes you want and copy this to the default profile. Have the person login again and it will inherit the correct settings.
