Computer question; Every time I turn on my computer, (windows xp) I have to reset my screen resolution. Help?

I not a computer wizard by any means. I do know my way around it pretty good. When the system reboots everything happens just like normal then right before the hour glass icon disapears the screen goes black temporarily and then the resolotion is suddenly 8 bit. Is there a sneaky secret thing I can do? It's very anoying.
