Windows 10: Settings not holding with monitor off at boot

    Settings not holding with monitor off at boot


    If Windows 10 starts with my monitor turned off, text and icon sizes aren't correct. Rebooting corrects the icons, but I have to go back and reset text sizes in Control Panel > Display > Change only the text size, since those settings have all reverted to default sizes. Desktop icon positions are sometimes not retained. Also, when I update the Nvidia GTX-1050 driver and select clean install, monitor resolution isn't retained for the period between the old driver being deleted and the new one installed. That displaces desktop icons. I didn't have any of those problems with the GTX-750 I used until recently, even with the same UHD monitor. Any ideas whether this might be a graphics card problem or whether 64-bit Windows 10 Pro is at fault? When I first installed the GTX-1050, Windows didn't automatically set the correct 3840x2160 monitor resolution as it did with the GTX-750, even before the Nvidia driver was installed.

    when you change the text size, do you actually "log out" from the current user and then log back in before rebooting?
    my 5 cents and just out of curiousity

    No, have never done that. Setting text the same as for 2 other PCs that have no problems if monitors aren't turned on when they start, both with earlier Nvidia cards (GTX-750 Ti & GT-640) that use the same driver as the GTX-1050.
