How To Change Your Screen Resolution From A Command Line


This freeware tool is very cool if you need to change your screen resolution size from a command line for automation.  I recently ran into an issue with the latest Intel chipset, Q35.  If you Sysprep a machine and force your image to 1024 x 768 resolution the onboard Intel Video will revert back to the highest resolution of 1280 x 1024.  In order to fix this I wrote a quick WMI vbscript that checks to see if the resolution is 1280 x 1024.  If so, then run QRES.exe and switch back.  Hope this helps someone.  What a pain!!
