    You got it. It's my wife's desktop Win7 and all the intel thing does is adjust display settting from a different way. The problem is precisely resolution and I don't need intel to get me there. But the d*mn wizard (my choice) reset the resolution to preferred and I can't seem to get the resolution back to where it was set. I'm just looking for the easiest way to reset the resolution to where it was before I got creative! If there is one vs restoring last nights image

    I see no reason not to add Macrium rescue to Windows boot menu. I have it always added, on all machines.

    Plus 1. I have a USB flash drive as a extra option.

    I'm not doing an image restore. I remember that one of the QuickBooks programs was open yesterday morning from the night before and I don't trust an image to grab and open data file. And my automatic data backup would have skipped the file.

    I've got the resolution close and now it'll take the two of us to get it right. The problem is QuickBooks.The program is a RPITA. It wants screen size the way it wants it. So it's a matter of her seeing the desktop icon size/spacing and then opening 2 different versions of QB and confirming that the data file is viewed correctly.

    The 'recommended' resolution for this screen reduces size too much for her eyes.

    DELL EUFI USB boot to Reflect rescue UFD solved!!


    Boot Problem Resolved!

    The Dell has 4 USB ports--2 on the left, 2 on the right. The mouse transmitter is always in the right back. The external drive uses the right front (Reflect scheduled images).

    The left 2 are used for UFD and/or DVD.

    I thought I'd test the UFD on the right side before setting up another UFD from a different purchase date with rescue data and try an external ISO/CD. So I removed the external drive from the right front USB and inserted the UFD.

    F12 saw the USB port on the UEFI boot screen and I booted to Reflect.

    Then I kept the external drive unplugged and inserted the UFD back into the left USB where I've been trying to see the USB for the past days with no luck. F12 again saw the USB port!

    For whatever reason, you cannot have the external USB hard drive attached when attempting to boot from USB. Who would have thunk ;-)?

    Concerning your wife's computer -- monitor resolution settings can sometimes, but not always, be adjusted after a cold or warm boot, and a fresh Windows session -- don't know why, I sometimes can fix a temporary hiccup after a cold or warm boot, and a fresh Windows session. I don't know if the above helps or not because I'm a Windows 7 person.

    Display settings 'PS' Resolved


    I restored her machine to a week ago, took screen shots of the resolution and color settings, restored her current image and adjusted all settings.

    Peace resides again in the family ;-)
