    Return from sleep mode is strange


    I have had my Samsung Q35 and Microsoft Vista package now for about 9 months,
    but recently have started experiencing a strange problem. Every time I come
    out of sleep mode (whether I enter it manually, or just let the PC drift
    off...) the display has large icons and images, as though it has
    automatically entered safe mode.

    Since the icons are so big, the Start menu cannot show everything. I have to
    completely restart the computer to get it to return to normal.

    Has anyone experienced this problem and could anyone help?

    Thanks,

    David

    This has occurred with me after a video driver update, I just rolled it back
    and it corrected the issue.
