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

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

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.

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,

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.

Buy a new card, that's about all you can do (in my knowledge) to gain more resolution options. Your card, being integrated, isn't the best and doesn't have that much option.

Beyond that, what's the native resolution of your monitor? And what size is it? Is it a laptop?

welcome,
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.

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. :)

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..

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.

A:Problem with Screen resolution

I have the same problem. I usually put my computer on Hibernate, or Standby. Well, this time I shut it down. When I turned it back on, the resolution went to a different one. I went to personalize and display settings, raised the bar looking for 1440x900 and didn't find it. It was the highest setting at one point cause it was my native resolution. Now it's gone.
I tried "back-up and restore center" from Start>All programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
Restored the system. Nothing changed and I went to furthest restore point I possibly could.
Then, I tried to update my drivers through ATI.(some people have Nvidia or something...)
That didn't work out. They said to first download it, uninstall the current driver then install the new one, then reboot.
All it did was add a resolution but didn't add the one I needed.
Then I read somewhere to just unplug my monitor for ten seconds, plug it back in and it in and what do you know. It fixed it.
Then, since I restarted from the restart point, I had to re install the Windows Updates and guess what happened the resolution sucked again.
Now I'm too lazy to restart my computer and unplug it and all that good stuff.
So give all that a try. good luck.

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?

Hey guys/girls.. As you'll notice by my elite post count, I'm a brand newby.

I'm fairly experienced PC user, however, I just formatted my system after an uncontrollable virus got into my System32 dir.. At least thats what some free antivirus program said

I've checked my Graphics card, and thats firmly plugged in to the motherboard, and the VGA lead to the card is firmly plugged in and screwed in. This is the first time I've ever had this problem, so it's really bugging me to a) get it resolved and b) to find out the problem

A:Screen resolution problem.

Well, the system apparently could not automatically find the right driver for your monitor. Go to the manufacturer's website (of the monitor) and see whether they have something more appropriate.

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!

A:[PROBLEM] Screen resolution not right!

Tried uninstaling graphics drivers and reinstalling? (Possible corrupt Driver File)

Try a diffrent Driver Version? (Might be a bug in driver version your using)

Does you monitor need drivers? (Sometimes installing monitor Drivers help things)

My monitors native resolution should be 1680 x 1050 as its a 22 inch wide screen, and it was running fine in that setting when I shut down my PC before I went to bed last night. Now I wake up turn it on and the resolution has changed to 1280 x 720 for no discernible reason, and cannot be changed to go higher.

So far I have tried to change it back via the control panel and Nvidia control panel to no avail, I tried using custom resolution in Nvidia control panel also the test fails. I have updated display drivers and updated windows 7 to try to fix the problem neither has worked.

Does anyone know how to rectify this very annoying and unnecessary problem?

Check the cables to be sure they are not loose. Is the monitor correctly I identified on the windows screen resolution page?

Yesterday I installed a driver for my new mouse, then restarted my laptop. After that my resolution is stuck at 1600x1200. When I right click my desktop and click resolution, it says it's at 1920x1080! but it's definitely not.

It also shows a message in the resolution window "If your resolution is below 1600x1200, some items may not fit on the screen".

I tried uninstalling the mouse driver (im not sure if thats the cause of the problem..), I tried rolling back my display driver, then updating it back to normal. I also rebooted my laptop many times.

What should I do? Should I maybe completely uninstall my display driver? If so, how do I re install it? I appreciate any help I could get!!!

Im running Windows 7 64bit, and I have Nvidia Geforce GTX 260M...

Also, ever since this problem started yesterday, when I start a game, I cant move my cursor for some reason, with my mouse or my touchpad.

Hi,

This may be simple, but I've not come across it before.

My next door neighbours PC has started to default to 640x480. When I attempt to put it back to 800x600 or 1024x768, it says it must restart, but when it does, the resolution stays set at 640 x 480.

Any ideas?

Hello,

Over the past few weeks I have been looking around and noticed that this is a very common issue across laptops that many seem to have with no definite answer. I have an Sony VAIO laptop, running windows 7 home premium , and if i use any program that causes my resolution to change to something smaller than the native 1366 x 768. After playing the game (for example, Warcraft 3), I return to my desktop with no issue, the resolution changes everytime. I close the lid or restart, it also changes the resolution. All of my windows 7 and graphics drivers are up to date, and still the issue persists. It is extremely annoying to have to change the settings every time I log in.

Any help someone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

hello. i have Windows XP home edition. my computer has been running at 1024 by 764 resolution since we obtained the computer many years ago. My little brother was messing around on the computer and now ther resolution is messed up. when the resolution is at 1024 by 764, the entire display seems to go "up" passed the limits of the screen, but reappears cascaded beneath the taskbar. also, the taskbar is raised up. when i try putting the computer at 800 by 600 resolution the taskbar goes back to the bottom of the screen and the display no longer extends above the top of the screen. However, many of my links are cut off at the top. I want my computer resolution to go back to 1024 by 764 and work properly, but i cant figure it out. my thinking was if i could find a way to move the entire display vertically down, much like adjusting the display on a tv, then it will solve the problem. However, i dont kno how to change the problem. much help would be appreciated, but please, dont use big words on me. im not a computer genius. only a 16-year-old boy who is addicted to his computer.

Try setting the resolution you want and if your Monitor has an auto adjustment function use that :)...

After coming out of sleep one day my laptop's screen resolution was changed from its native 1280x800 to 1024x768, and it is impossible for me to change it back. I have tried to change it via display settings, powerstrip, ati catalyst control center, editing registry files, updating the bios, updating the drivers, scanning for viruses, and updating windows - all have failed. I was just wondering how to revert my resolution back to 1280X800.

The guts:
HP TouchSmart tx2 Notebook PC
4.00 GB RAM
Windows Vista? Home Premium (6.0, Build 6002) Service Pack 2
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
DirectX 10
AMD Turion(tm) X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-85 (2 CPUs), ~2.3GHz

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

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.

It is the issue with Vista

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.

Hi,

I have been using Windows 7 since the past 2 months and it was a breeze.Yesterday my brother messed up something and formatted the windows so I had to do a re-install.
Now the problem is that I am not able to acheive the desired resolution as before, everything is showing quite stretched (as in wide than normal proportions).What I am looking for is a reslution of 1280 x 880 or 1440 x 990, but I am not able to coz there are no options though earlier it was working fine.

Quick reply would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Monti

I have windows vista on my desktop. No graphics cards or anything fancy, just a 2.4 pentium with 4 gigs of ram. I run it on a 32" LG screen/monitor

OK heres the problem. Everything was working great before, But I went to the control panel/display settings. I changed the screen resolution from the 1200 x whatever it was and put it at the top one, which was something like 2100 x something else. Upon hitting thoses setteing the monitor went blank and said something like, not recognized, or unable to do...something like that. Now, I cant do ANYTHING at all, the screen is just black when I turn it back on and with the same error message. This error message is not generated by my comupter, but by the tv itself. like i said, I cant see anything to help fix it.

I ran insafe mode, and while in safe mode, i can see fine. its all in 800x600 and everythings big, but at least i can see. When i change the resolution in safe mode and apply it, it doesnt stick and do the same thing when im not in safe mode..

Is there anything I can do to reset the screen resolution when not in safe mode so that my computer is functional??? Is there a reset or something. god this really frustrates me that a simple click out of curiousity can cause such a great error.

Any help is appreciated. I dont have a computer, im at a friends house but I will check tomorrow for answers. I sincerly appreciate your time.

A:Please help me with my screen resolution problem

Try these in this order.

do you have a smaller monitor that you can try?
It may revert if you try a different one.
Not likely but worth a try.

While in safe mode try a much lower resolution and see if it sticks.
Also boot back into safe mode on the next boot to see if it will stick as it may need that to assure itself that those are the correct settings.
Not likely either.

I assume device manager shows nothing.
So at boot press F8 and boot with vga and try the settings and see if they stick.
Maybe

Then try to boot in safe mode and in device manager try to disable the driver. It should then reboot in 800X600. Try to renable and reset to the correct settings and reboot.

Another option if you had updated your video drivers would be to in device manager revert to an older driver.

If all else fails delete the driver. Make sure that you have it on a cd or something.Let windows boot and put in the new one.

If you have any questions feel free to ask
