adjusting screen resolution - AOC monitor

Q: adjusting screen resolution - AOC monitor

AOC 2353 monitor, on windows 7 has a recommended resolution of 1920 by 1080

when it is set here I notice even the desktop boots up quick and efficient. opposed to when it is set at 1600 by 900. which is best on the eyes.

problem with 1920 by 1080 is that the folders and print are far too minute to see.

this is with Intel onboard video, from the processor.

is there a way to expand the text and folders? browsers can be zoomed

would having a video card help?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: adjusting screen resolution - AOC monitor

If you go into the advanced display settings, you can increase the size of items and fonts and can "bold" the text.
I've got bad eyes, so I do this every time I set up one of my computers after I install the Windows operating system.

The native resolution for my 27" monitors is 1920 X 1080.
This is an example of what my desktop looks like after changing the display settings.
As you can see, the icons and text are noticeably larger and bolder than they would be from using the default settings.

Until recently, I was always able to adjust my monitor's screen resolution. Now whenever I try to adjust it to 2048 by 1536 pixels (the most resolution), I get an error message that says:

OUT OF FREQUENCY

HF: 95.4 kHz
VF: 60.0 Hz

OPERATING FREQUENCY

HF: 30-70 kHz
VF: 50-160 Hz

What does all this mean? Why can't I do something simple like set my screen resolution?

Help would be appreciated... thanks.

So I bought a new netbook for work travel recently and loaded a program that I need to use. Program runs fine and all, however the prescribed screen resolution for the program is 1024x768 and the netbook (with Windows 7 HE and an Intel GMA 3150) doesn't seem to want to go past 1024x600. Does anyone perhaps have a thought or a way to get 7 to display more here? I don't mind if I even just need to scroll around to get to all the material, but right now its just cutting off part of the program making it impossible to work on some of it.

A:Adjusting Netbook Screen Resolution

Hi Orion3,

While your 1024x768 program is a standard 4:3 aspect ratio, 1024x600 is a widescreen aspect ratio (16:9) as many netbooks have. I'm pretty sure that if 600 is the maximum pixel height it can display but you still need to match the 4:3 aspect ratio program, then you'll have to go down to 800x600 rather than up. Try that and let me know how it works.

Cheers,

Hi everyone!
I have a problem when i start using Win7 and adjust my screen resolution...
when i adjust the resolution to 1206x682 or higher, the whole windows become larger and eventually become larger than my screen. So i can see only part of my taskbar. However, this will not happen when i use XP.
Is this normal?
At this time i can't use any video editing software as they require 1024x768 or higher resolution, what should i do?
Sorry for my poor English. I am still an English learner.
thanks!

UPDATE-----
when i set to a higher resolution in XP, the icons are smaller and the size of the windows doesnt change. But when i do this in 7, the size of icons doesnt change but the whole windows become larger.

I just bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex GX240 (PIV) system equipped with ATI RAGE 128 video (32MB). I installed W2000. I have hooked up my ~14 year old 21" monitor, a Dell Ultrascan 1600 HS (model no is VC8BEN, I've read that this basically a Sony Trinitron).

Thie monitor res is 1600x1200 pixels, but it will only display at 800x600, 16 color VGA on this system - which is useless!. The display properties (desktop setttings etc) describes it as default monitor on VGA, and the box to change the monitor type etc remains greyed out/unmodifiable (in desktop settings etc) even if you reboot in safe mode.

This was a suprise as the same monitor (with same cable) has run fine in high res (up to 1600 x 1200) and 32 bit / true colour on my old (~1996) PC, also running W2000, for years. On this display/settings... also says "default monitor", but with location Svision968 (old video card, I'd guess - pre-PCI slot (ISA?) so I can't try on old card on 'new' PC).

I looked and don't think there's a W2000 driver for this monitor. Any ideas if/how this can be made to work properly?... I'm hoping there might be some update or manual tweak but I'm basically out of ideas - help!.

Apart from the different hardware, my new system doesn't have W2000 service pack updates (old one has a few) but I'd doubt this is relevant.

Skeggy.

The laptop monitor has higher resolution than the projector which I think is the cause of the very fuzzy/out of focus picture on the projector. I've tried to lower the resolution on the laptop but when I hook up the projector, it changes back to the original high resolution setting. My objective is to get a clear picture on the projector screen.

a few days ago i changed my screen resolution from 1024x768 down to 800x600. When i go to change it back (to 1024.768 from 800x600), the top and bottom of the screen have a 1 inch thick black area on the edges of the screen. Before I changed it to 800x600 the black area wasn't there. I changed it by clicking on the screen, going to properties, settings tab, and moved the bar. I did that both times.

I am wondering if there was another way to change it, because of the black area's on the edges that weren't there before.

Also when i set it back to 1024x768, the icons and display were smaller than they were before. I'm sure of this, because before i changed it i had all the folders and programs along the top of the screen, and they reached nearly to the end with 2-3 spots left for others, and when I set it back there was room for 7-8 programs or folders.

And once i set it to 1152x864 and the monitor started to make a wierd noise. IDK what was up with that.

btw i'm running windows xp and it's a desktop with a not flat screen.
 

A:monitor screen resolution problem

When you say it is a desktop, not a flat screen, I guess you're trying to say it is a CRT monitor. (big boxy thing like a TV)
What resolution do you want it to be set at?
There are buttons on all monitors to adjust the screen all kinds of ways.
You can eliminate the black bands on top and botom of your picture using these buttons.
Decide on the resolution you want and then use those buttons to adjust the size and placement of the window. Then leave it alone.

Alright, so my laptop screen has been severely cracked for over two years (so badly that I can't use the left portion of the screen and also some of the right side). I have been using external monitors or televisions with hdmi inputs since it broke and have run into few problems. I recently moved and got all new stuff including a tv. Currently the tv is the only thing I have that I can use as an external monitor. 
 
My problem lies in the resolution. There is no resolution available that will fit the screen. Most of them are far too wide and long, so much that portions of my desktop are "hanging off" of the screen, and the others are so small that I can't really see anything at all. What do I do?! I've searched the web for an answer, I tried using software to change the available resolutions. I didnt seem to have this problem when I had windows 7, so i'm wondering if it doesnt have something to do with the operating system.
 
If you have any suggestions please reply asap! I can barely use my computer and it is utterly frustrating.

Hello, I just got this monstrosity of a monitor..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116075
When set to reccomended resolution of 1680x1050, the stuff on the screen is really small. Things like the browser window fills the whole screen, but the web page only takes up a small portion and leaves the rest blank. Is there a way to adjust the content onscreen so that it uses the whole screen? Ive had to lower the resolution to 1024x768. So that the wife is happy with the way it looks.
Also does someone know a thing or two about the hows and whys of resolutions. Or a site where I can learn about them. So that when someone asks me what they do I dont respond " it makes stuff on the screen smaller!"
 

A:Flat screen monitor resolution questions

Resolution size shouldnt be viewed like TV size where the screen is bigger and so the image is bigger. The best way to put it is like a house (web page) to a plot of land (your monitor), if your land grows (resolution increases), the house remains the same size, so if your resolution gets higher, the website size doesnt change but its viewable space has increased so you have a bunch of dead space now dont you?

Most websites are built with a 800-1100 px width to accomodate the most common resolutions (800 x 600 & 1024x768) and not make them to wide. When your monitor is set at 1680 for the width, you have about 800 to 600 pixels left on the screen as filler space. By getting a larger monitor but keeping your same 1024x768 resolution, you really just increased the size of what you were viewing. Increasing the resolution gives you more viewable space to accomodate multiple windows more multi-tasking, etc... Higher resolutions do make things smaller because you are making more space for your desktop both horizontal and vertically. If you put your resolution at 800 x 600, you'd have to scroll left or right on most of the pages you visited.

Widescreen lcd's like this one are sold more for video or gaming uses. Playing a DVD at the optimal size for the monitor will look a lot better than at the 1024x768 setting. If you simply want to browse the web then you can just leave your settings at whatever you feel comfortable viewing.

Hi, I wouldn't really classify this as a Windows 7 issue, but I don't know where else to post this. I recently bought a cheap TV (24" Orion) and decided it would be nice to have a second monitor for my laptop, however it doesn't quite work the way I would like it. I have my laptop connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. Anyways, I am not really sure how to explain it other than a pictorial representation, so I attached a picture to approximately show the problem. On the new TV, the edges are all cut-off and it gets annoying when I drag something to make it full-screen, then I have a difficult time dragging the bar or using the buttons/ tabs, etc. in general. (It's worse than shown in the picture).

Are there any sort of drivers or programs I can download to fix this? I just checked and downloaded all of my latest graphic drivers.

Any good solution would be immensely appreciated.

A:New TV-monitor Resolution Too Large for Screen/ Image Being Cut-Off

After you done installing, Go to the Video cards Control Panel either by clicking the icon in the task bar, or by clicking it in Control Panel and change the resolution for one that works for the TV.

I'm running an Asus EEC PC Netbook with Winows 7 Starter OS. I have this linked to an external montor screen in a boat which has a "native" resolution of 800x600.

When the monitor is connected, via VGA link, it forces the 800x600 resolution onto both itself and the netbook screen. Unfortunately I then lose part of the screen image.

Is it possible to somehow persuade the 800x600 monitor to display a quasi 1024x768 resolution, which is the usual netbook resolution? A thin black band around the image would not be a problem.

I have tried the obvious route: Control Panel - Adjust Screen Resolution -but without success; it won't let me move off the 800x600 setting.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hey all, my laptop's native resolution is 1920 x 1080, and it looks great at that resolution. However some games require a lower resolution for maximum performance. I can change the resolution to 1280x720 fine, but the new resolution does not fill the screen. Instead, it's as if Windows has decided only to show the middle 1280x720 pixels out of the original 1920x1080, creating a 4-sided letterbox effect that is quite comical. Please tell me how to resolve this so that when I resize the screen I don't just make the viewing area smaller and smaller.

Hi

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using a 19" widescreen monitor with a native resolution of 1440x900. If I try to use this resolution I get a decent quality image, but it goes off the sides of the screen. The Geforce drivers recommend using 1440x1050, which works but everything looks squashed and not quite right, so I would prefer to use the native resolution.

The problem occurs with the Geforce drivers Windows installed by default, and with the ones I downloaded from nVidia's website (version 260.99.) While trying to mess with the display settings I managed to get a blank screen so had to boot into safe mode (where presumable it uses some sort of basic VESA driver rather than the nVidia drivers), if I set the display to 1440x900 there the image fills the screen perfectly!

In the nVidia control panel it reports the native resolution as 1440x1050.

Any ideas on how to get 1440x900 working properly?

Many thanks.

Matthew

I decided to hook up my desktop's monitor to my laptop, to give the dual screens thing a test.

My monitor resolution can go up to 1440*900 pixels, and my laptop at 1280*800 pixels.

But when I hook up my monitor to my laptop, there is no option for 1440*900 for the monitor's resolution. I have to use a different one which doesn't look quite as good. My laptop can remain at its highest as normal.

Is this a side effect of using dual screens, or is there a way I can get the 1440*900 option back when I hook it up to my laptop?

Many thanks.

I have a laptop running windows 7, connected to an external monitor (dell 2209wa). I have installed the drivers from dell, but i m not able to select the max resolution (1680x1050). The max I could go is 1440x900 which is my laptop screen's resolution. Windows was able to detect the monitor correctly. This same laptop was running windows xp before and there were no issue with displaying max resolution. Is there a quick way to fix this? Perhaps via an third party tool?
 

A:Unable to select the right screen resolution for the second monitor

I end up creating a custom resolution 1680x1050. The text doesn't look as crisp as before but I guess its better than running the monitor at a lower resolution.

My hardware/software:
-Acer X223W Monitor
-Radeon 4860
-Windows 7 64

Here's the problem:

I was using my computer when my mother accidentally hit the room switch which turns my entire rig off. Annoyed, I turn my computer back on and now my screen resolution is all messed up. On top of that I can't open Chrome due to misplaced files.

I reinstalled all my drivers but instead of detecting the name of my monitor, it just shows Generic PnP Monitor instead.
I pick the best screen res(1600 x 1200) but that is clearly wrong(but the best i can do).

I've done a system restore and reinstalled all my drivers. I looked for the Acer X223W drivers but all I got was a security catalog, setup information, and an ICC profile that doesn't do anything when I run it. I searched for driver updates on device manager but it says the Generic PnP monitor driver is up to date.

My fear is that this is truly a hardware problem from the light switch, and nothing but a new monitor will fix. Anyone care to dig into this one?

Cheers

A:Generic PnP Monitor issue, Screen resolution is off

According to Microsoft you won't need any additional drivers:

Windows 7 Compatibility for Acer X223W 22" TFT LCD: Acer. Drivers, Updates, Downloads

Try uninstalling the monitor and then reboot. Acer was no help, seeing that they apparently didn't bother after they got past the 32-bit Vista driver.

HI,

I've plugged my laptop into an HP LA2306x 24inc monitor. Max resolution for monitor is 1920x1080 60hz. I've changed the settings on the laptop to connect to projector and set up the resolution as 1920x1080. Images are perfect but I cant centralise the screen. I can just see the top of the toolbar and there is 1cm to spare at the top of the screen.

I have tried all the monitor settings and taken a look at the graphics card settings. Am very confused. Can anyone help?


Ive attached a picture showing the cursor/pointer at the top of the screen to indicate the gap.

Thanks a lot.

What graphics card do you have? sometimes you have to "upscale it" with your software suite.

Hello.

I just bought new LCD. It is - ViewSonic va1912w - 19 inch - wide screen.
I used installation cd, followed all steps and installation was sucessfull. The monitor works properly only if it is set at 1440 x 900

At present i have no graphic card installed. But i have 512mb of ddr2 ram with 2.6 hgz intel processor.

After installing monitor... the highest resolution i can set is 1280x768. At present monitor is set at 1280x768 and result is horrible.

I tried reinstalling. but no change.
Then i went to direversguide.com and downloaded new drivers - installed it successfully and still maximum resolution shown is 1280x768. Now, if i dont set resolution to 1440x900 - results are really bad.

any hint on what should be done?

Thanks,
Romit

Old computer is HP ProBook attached separately to a ViewSonic LED 1080p 22" monitor.  I use Extended Desktop mode with Built-In Monitor + Monitor.  Works great with Built-In Monitor at 1366x768 resolution and external monitor at 1920x1080
(and called VX2450 Series).  Roughly same size look, but the 22" monitor gives me great view on Excel Spreadsheets, etc.  New computer is an HP EliteBook and I can't the external monitor off this 'magnified' look.  Running the new computer
at 2560x1440 on the built-in monitor, and while the external monitor says 1920x1080, it looks magnified by 10 times or 20 times bigger.  Any ideas how to get the external monitor to be normal sized?  I like using the external for large spreadsheets.
 Thanks!

I just got a HP ZR24w monitor and have connected it using VGA to my Lenovo ThinkPad T400, with graphics card ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400. The drivers are up to date. I'm running Windows Vista 32-bit.

I want the external monitor to display the same thing as my laptop screen, not act as a second screen. This works fine, but won't display a resolution higher than 1280x800. If I make the monitor a second screen instead of a clone, the monitor will then display at the proper 1920x1200 resolution.

How can I get the monitor to display at 1920x1200 when cloning the laptop screen?

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1 on my replacement boot disk (old one died) on May 25/12. Since June 4 (and at least once before that), daily my monitor is no longer recognized and the screen resolution is decreased. It doesn't know about my Samsung monitor anymore.

It now shows this:
Display: Generic Non-PnP Monitor, Resolution: 1024x768.

When I run personalize, screen resolution, detect,
Windows sees the correct monitor (SyncMaster 245B(Analog)) and sets the resolution to 1920 x 1200. Meanwhile all my open apps are resized smaller, I have to resize them again.

I'm not sure what the cause of the problem is. It's not necessarily happening at the same time and I can't seem to find an error in event viewer. Any ideas how to troubleshoot and resolve this issue?


Latest drivers for PC hardware I installed - video and monitor:

A:my monitor is no longer recognized, screen resolution is decreased

The most interesting part of your post for me was 'Since June 4'.

I have also been having display problems recently. In my case one monitor would have a display only on bootup then go black, another monitor would always be black and Change display settings would say that there was no monitor.

When I tried to do a System Restore it said that there had been a Windows 7 Update on Jun 4!

I was able to get the two monitors eventually to work as they once did, not using Change display settings but rather by using Catalyst Control Center which on my computer is the factory installed video adaptor interface.

Finally, I didn't understand 'When I run personalize, screen resolution, detect, ', please explain.

Hi guys,

I re-installed windows 7, everything went ok apart from one thing. I work with two monitors, and when I click detect (in the resolution panel) my computer is not able to recognize one of my two monitors. It displays the image on both monitors, using the resolution specifications of my AOC LM765 monitor. My other monitor is a BenQ GL2240 (1920 x 1080). I have an ASUS EAH5770 CUcore/G/2DI/1GD5 graphical card.

I tried to update the drivers, but that didn't work. I sought for similar problems online, but found none similar to mine.

Has one of you any idea of what I could do to solve this problem?

~All help is appreciated.

woops,

I was back at over clocking my poor PC (probably all that looking at quad core intels and 8800 cards) and to see how my graphics were doing set half life to 1600 x 1200 which my monitor doesn't like and wont display. Now I can't undo it - there is no second chance unlike windows.. and suggestions? I've tried setting the resolution to 60hz in windows but that does not help - incidentally the monitor can support 1600 x 1024 at 100 hz but not 1600 x 1200 strange - its a Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 220 CRT.
 

A:I've set half life 2 screen resolution too high for the monitor

Found this info on the steam site:

How do I set the autoconfig launch option?

The -autoconfig launch option will allow Steam to configure the game with the best settings for use on your machine.

Open Steam
Go to the "My Games" tab
Right-click the game which needs to be reconfigured
Select "Properties" from the menu
Click the "Set launch options..." button
Add -autoconfig at the end of the line, be sure to include a space before the "-" and anything before it.

If that doesn't work try and and put -w 800 instead of -autoconfig

give it a shot

Hello,
I purchased XPS 13 9360 two weeks ago.
I have a screen resolution problem (blur, not clear) for all MS Office applications on external monitor (HP Pavilion 27xw).
Video driver is up to date (Intel HD graphics 620). I called DELL support but they ask me to pay as the problem occurs only for MS Office applications.
I searched online and found one solution which I need to make external monitor as "Main Display".
Then MS-Office application will have same problem on my laptop screen.
Please help! Is this really MS-Office problem?

A:XPS 13 9360 - MS Office screen resolution on external monitor

Hi stk7105,
Thanks for posting.
Apologies your monitor is not working the way you expected.  Dell has not tested our products to work with this HP Pavilion monitor, so it would not be supported.
Have you tried a different monitor?  
Please contact HP for assistance.  Thanks.
