    hi, i have some how managed to change the resolution of the white and grey apple boot screen when os x boots up. Its is now about 800 x 600 even though when it gets to my desktop it goes back to my setting of 1280 x 1024 which i can change with out problem.

    I am running 10.3.8 on a dual 1.8 g5, and i have tried several methods to try resolve this problem including, reinstalling from the osx disk that came it my g5, resetting the nvram and using some software called xboot that allows to change the boot image, but not the resolution.

    It is not a major problem as it does not effect the running of the computer, it just bugs the hell out of me.

    Any ideas? cheers

    pram and nvram?

    im not sure which one i reset, looking at it now it was the PRAM i reset by holding down Command + Option +P + R at start up. Not completely sure what im doing i just found different things that i could try from different web sites that might reset it, i also tried going into the firmware and did the "reset-all' command. Think im going to have to just grin and bare it as is just an anoyence not proformance related issue.

    I too recently reset the PRAM and now the apple boot screen is 800x600 just like this (it wasn't before). Why does this happen and how can I get it back to the way it was?
