Dear javed,

sorry for delay but we had to verify.
Unfortunately only a servicecenter or partner can change the wrong settings in BIOS. Please contact the helpdesk in your area getting the next Partner nearby.
Only the Partner can set back the system settings in BIOS because of having the correct tools for changing.

i m sorry i forgot to clarify that i hav not done any kind of bios update..it happened all by itself.i removed the c-mos battery once after this happened.it went back to original state.the bios detected my laptop correctly as m1424 and everything was perfect.after a day or two it again went back to the wrong detection and smaller screen.just thought it wud be worth mentioning these details..i think there must be an easy way to revert back to original settings..plz let me know if any or if i am wrong...hav a good day.May GOD BLESS YOU.thanx.

may be there is not enough power supplied by the CMOS battery and you should exchange the battery. Nevertheless I send you a PM with a contact of the indian support.
