Thanks - That changes to the correct resolution when I logon, but the
logon screen is still low-res. Good enough for now

Well not really, it's a i5 2500K on a Z68 motherboard using the on-die
graphics - I was hoping that there was an i915 module parameter or other
configuration setting which would tell the Intel gfx driver that the
motherboard does not have a VGA connector (only a HDMI)

My bad - I should have explained it a bit better, sorry
