It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

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.

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

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

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,

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?
 

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.

I have had my laptop for nearly half a year now and I just recently found an HDMI cable in an old junk box that can be connected from my widescreen Samsung DLP to my Laptop. The problem is that when I set my TV to be the main display the task bar does not fit on screen and I can barely see it. Another problem is when I play my games or watch videos they also appear to be bigger then what my screen is. I cant even see the exit or minus button when I make my windows/browsers in full screen. I have tried changing the screen resolution, but that doesn't work either. I then thought it might be my TV but it does not give my the option to change its aspect ratio.

I there solution to my little problem? Like a download or a program that is naturally in the computer that can adjust the aspect ratio (not resolution) manually for extended displays? And the resolution is on its recommended settings by the way.

A:I need help with adjusting my screen.

What is the graphics card on your laptop? Both AMD and nVidia cards have overscan options in their software which should give you the capability to adjust your display size manually until it fits. Also check that you're outputting the correct resolution for your TV.

Unknowingly, I had reduced my screen resolution and, of course, all the icons etc were huge. I found a post here about changing the resolution back to 1024 X 768 and successfully did this via Control Panel, Display, Settings and pressed the "Apply" button and then the "OK" button and everything returned to normal. However, whenever I switch off and restart the computer again it reverts back to the lower screen resolution and I have to reset it again. How can I rectify this so that the screen resolutions settings are saved?
 

A:Screen Resolution problem

You likely have a failure of your video graphics driver, or your screen hardware is failing.
First, download a new driver. Once you have it handy and can find it again, remove or disable the old driver. Next, install the newly downloaded driver.
You could also have other hardware errors such as memory or hard drive not properly working.

I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT video card installed on my new HP Pavillion dv7 1034ca laptop. It came with Vista Home Premium. So the first thing I did was intall Vista Ultimate. When I did that, the resolution was reset to 800x600.

I reinstalled all the drivers, including the one for the NVIDIA card. When I went to change the resolution, I noticed that the highest I could go was 1440x900. Which is ok but I remember being able to go to a higher resolution when I had Vista Home Premium installed.

The reason why I remember is because my icons are a bit larger now than they were before. What's bad is that 1440x900 is the highest I can go. What happened to my higher resolution?

Hi all,

I just turned on my computer about an hour ago and immediately I noticed there was something different about my screen resolutions. Everything appeared bigger and "pixelated." The black edges appear normal, but everything else within this frame was larger. When I change the resolution settings it isn't the default setting I've always had (although sometimes it gets close) and the black edges get messed up. When I first started up my computer, the settings were at 800 x 600, and I changed them to 1024 x 768, but the black edges are still messed up and aren't how they should be. Does anybody have any solutions? I've tried just about everything I can think of.

Hello,

I'm asking on behalf of my mom. She has a compaq laptop running on Windows XP. There is a problem she has recently had involving the screen resolution. Her screen resolution became very tiny; too tiny for her to play well. I tried changing it back to 800x600, but when I change the resolution, instead of making it that resolution, it actually keeps the same resolution, but instead shrinks the screen, leaving everything smaller with a black border. It won't go back to the resolution with the bigger-sized icons. It would be very helpful if someone could help me fix my problem please. She has to run it in safe-mode with networking in order for the resolution to be how she runs it in normally. Thanks for your help people. :)

If you are running an intel graphics chipset, and you download the latest driver, there is a feature that allows you to set a custom resolution. I wouldn't suggest forcing a resolution though. If the resolution is hidden, it is because it cannot display correctly.

There are a lot of things you can try and they may not help;

1. Remove the battery for approximately 20 minutes.
2. Try cleaning out any dust accumulation.
3. Try repositioning the top portion with the display (move it down an inch)
4. Be sure it is not overheating.
5. Take it to a local repair shop for a diagnostic.
6. Contact the manufacturer.

Actually, the work-around is to Turn off the screen saver or set it to the "Blank" screen screen saver. This way the resolution will not be changed during the screen saver run and Vista will not get confused when the computer wakes up.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate RC 32 bit that I'm using in dual-boot mode with Windows XP Professional SP2. I am using an old ViewSonic monitor and I don't have the drivers. Windows XP is apparently using a generic driver which lets me set any screen resolution I like and I usually use 1024x768. Windows 7 has a generic driver which will only allow 800x600. Does anyone know if the Windows XP video driver will work in Windows 7 and, if so, the best way to copy and install it?

A:Problem with screen resolution

Its not the monitor - You need to install Windows 7 Drivers for your Graphics Hardware.

A monitor by default uses a Generic PNP Monitor or Generic Non PNP Monitor Driver, either one should not affect what resolution you can run it at. What graphics adaptor do you have? I'd be happy to help you find drivers for it..

Hello. I'm not certain how long I've had this problem, it seems to have only recently surfaced. If I play a game or something that changes my screen resolution, after I exit out of the game my resolution won't return to normal. I have to select the right resolution and then restart my computer for the settings to work. Can anyone help? :(

A:Screen Resolution problem

The only thing I can think of is to set the computer to where it does not have to restart after changing the resolution. To do this you right click your desktop click properties then settings then advanced. Close down to the bottom of this it says After I change my display settings. Click on the one that says apply the new display settings without restarting. Then click apply and ok as well as the other ok behind that window. Then you should be able to change your display settings without restarting. And maybe if you have a flat screen monitor with a button to press to set it up and a auto setting this might get your screen back to normal. But if not and you have a fat monitor like me which is called a CRT Monitor then you can't really do to much other than keep on changing the display setting. But it should be easier since you shouldn't have to restart it after you change the display settings.

Hey guys,
I had just recently formatted my computer (had to get rid of Vista) and installed XP MCE. I am using a 32" HDTV as my monitor, and changed the resolution on my computer to a wide screen resolution using Media Center. All seemed to be working well, until i closed my Media center. Now all that shows up is "no input" after windows loads. Any help in fixing this problem would be greatly appruciated.

Thanks in advance

Hey all,

I have recently been running my computer for really long periods and have only just turned it off last night.

When I turned it on this morning it did a file corrupt scan which sometimes randomly happens. When windows fully loaded the screen resolution had been changed, almost to safe mode resolution.

So i\I have tried changing the resolution (Normal is 1920x1080), with no luck. Even though it says it is on 1920x1080 (recommmended), I know for a fact that it's not actually that resolution.

You can tell by this photo that the desktop is way to large for 1920x1080. Unfortunetly I do not have a photo of my original desktop resolution


I have installed the latest NVIDIA graphics driver, and it is the right driver for my card. Also checked all windows updates

So basicly has anyone had this problem and does anyone know of any fixes?

Specs:
Graphics Card - GTX 460
Monitor - BenQ G2420HD

Thanks guys!

Help, please!
I recently had to reinstall Windows XP and a new hard drive. And now I'm having resolution problems. The best I can get is 1280 x 800. Before the crash, I was running at 1280 x 1024. If I increase it to 1280 x 1024, the display is larger than the screen, and scrolls if I move the mouse to the edge of the screen.
My settings say I'm running [multiple monitors] on ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M. I'm only running one monitor, and there's no other option in the settings. I seem to recall running into this problem with a previous computer, but I can't remember how to solve it.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Scott

Hi I recently installed Windows 7 now the screen resolution is totally different to the one on Vista I also have a new Graphics card. My old Graphics hard with Vista was ATI Radeon X1200 Series or something. The one I have now is Nvidia Ge-force 9300 GEEDIT: My monitor is 19inches.As you can see below Firefox is small, these to much white around it if you know what what i mean, before I had the Firefox search to near enough fit the screen more.

Okay so i've always ran my pc on 1920x1080 because it's the resolution of my monitor. Today i upgraded my graphic card from (5970 x2 to GTX 780ti), once i turned on my pc and install the latest driver for the gtx 780t it set the resolution to 1920x1080 which is the recommendation setting, only the resolution seem to be to big, like i can't see half of my desktop icon because it's all the way to left side, and i can't see the window start button. nor the application that is running, i have to set the reslution to 1768x992 which is apparently the next level down. I keep getting resolution notices to set my resolution to 1920x1080 when i lower it. I didnt have this problem when i ran my 5970 card, it was set at 1920x1080 and everything was visible on the screen, but now icons are missing and i can't see the window start button. I've tried to take a screen shot of the problem but when i paste it on to paint everything looks normal, i'm confuse, does anyone know what's going on?

Suspect it's just scaling issue:

Look in the Nvidia app for scaling and adjust it:

Hi! I'm running Vista Ultimate 64-bit. I have a 24" LG Flatron L246WP-BN HD widescreen monitor and an integrated Radeon HD 3300 GPU on my ASUS M3A78-T mobo. After buying the monitor I realized it wouldn't work properly with my old system so I built a completely new one. (Check out my full system specs.) The monitor's native resolution is 1920 x 1200.

The problem I'm having is that I can't set the resolution higher than 1280 x 720. If I do I lose almost one-half of my screen (everything shifts to the left so I can't even see my Start button, etc.).

Am I doing something wrong? What good is it having a widescreen 24" 1920 x 1200 HD monitor if I lose half the screen by setting it to it's native resolution?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
