At work, I have a 19" monitor, WinXP Pro, running at 1600 x 1200 32bit colour.
At home, I have a 17" monitor, WinXP Home, running at 1024 x 768 32 bit colour.
This morning, I used Remote Desktop across a VPN to work, to access my work PC from home.
Later, I arrived at work, to find that my PC was now set to 640 x 480, 4 bit colour, and the settings unchangeable. Rebooting fixed this.
Question: is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing, to disallow the host PC from changing it's res?

I think that your PC reboot in safe mode, MS Windows does not load any device's driver when it boot in safe mode. So your display is set to VGA mode which is default mode. When it restart in normal mode, the device's drivers are loaded.
But I don't know why does your PC reboot ? May be the problem of electric power.

Also, there was no "Safe Mode" verbage on the desktop, and my normal wallpaper was up.
