Python screen resolution

Every time I enter Python it resets the monitor resolution to 640 x 480. I am not setting the monitor resolution anywhere. I am currently running Python 2.5 on a Windows XP computer. Any info will help.

Moving to the Python forum where it should receive better attention.

That's quite unusual behavior. I'm guessing that it has something to do with your command-line shell window. What happens when you go :Start->Run [cmd.exe]?

I have the same problem no matter how i open python. I have even tried redownloading it and I have the same problem. Do you have any other ideas.

It's not your python installation, as I suggested earlier. It's your command-line (DOS) shell that's causing this (I'm 99% sure). So I need to know what happens when you go to the Start menu and pull down to Run and type cmd.exe.

by the way, thank you for your help. when I open DOS the moniter resolution is not changed.
