    I'm having a tough time figuring this one out.

    I used to have a second account on my MacBook Pro for a presentation I did for a class. I needed a separate account for an iMovie project and to keep the resolution TV-friendly because I was displaying my work on an SDTV.

    Anyways, it appears the resolution that I changed it to kind of got stuck. Whenever I restart or log out, the login screen goes to 1024 x 768. I deleted the account already before I noticed it. Whenever I log in to my account, the resolution goes back to good ol' 1440 x 900. But any time I'm at the login screen, resolution drops back down.

    I have deleted the com.apple.-whatever preference file for login and reset. No good.

    I reset the SMC. No good.

    I tried making another account, switching resolutions. No good.

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong. HELP!

    Bump again. Deleting the preference files as someone posted on the Apple forums didn't help... Perhaps I'm deleting the wrong files? Help...
