    I run the launcher and get a msg saying unknown hardware defaulting to medium settings
    so i launch the game go into the options and change the textures from medium to large
    I get another msg saying you need to restart the game for this to take effect
    so i restart and get the "unknown hardware defaulting to medium settings" msg again and it resets the textures back to medium

    anyone know how to stop this

    Can't you adjust the video settings through the launcher itself? Have you tried setting them to your desired specifications THEN running the game, instead of adjusting them in game? When you double click the Oblivion icon, there should be an advanced video options setting that you can tweak before starting it up.

    Just run Oblivion.exe instead of the launcher.
