Q

Why on Windows XP reboot does the resolution always comes up 8x?

Why on Windows XP reboot does the resolution always comes up 8x, and I have to go to preferences to set it to the highest. There are only three on it: 8x, 16x and 32x. Who goofed?
I suspect that you are not talking about resolution, but about color depth. This answer assumes that's the case. Judging from the "8-16-32" you mentioned, I'm assuming you're talking about color depth, not resolution. Nobody goofed; the color depths for the Windows desktop are generally in 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit depths.
