I need help with adjusting my screen.

Q: I need help with adjusting my screen.

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.

Preferred Solution: I need help with adjusting my screen.

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: 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.

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,

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.

Hi everyone, I have a pretty weird tech problem.

What happens is, whenever I adjust my monitor's brightness (from its physical buttons) the screen turns black. However the monitor is still on, the LED is still green and the computer is still responsive, the screen just turns black.

I can use the computer just fine, as long as I don't try to adjust anything. If I do want to change something, I have to change the values a little, then restart, change them again, restart until I have the values I want. This problem appeared when I tried to adjust the brightness by keeping the + button pressed down, so it increased quickly.

Is this indicative of a dying monitor ? It is pretty old, it's an LG L1750SQ, 17 inch LCD, it's over 4 years old. Also, I do not believe the video card to the problem, since it stays pretty cool, it has a good heatsink on it.

I have recently upgraded hardware on my desktop. The major change is that I installed a new Solid State Drive as my drive C:. I think I also read somewhere that these drives "don't like" being written on too much and that one needs to enable/disable certain OS features for such drives.

So I checked the properties for the drive C in Windows 8 and here's what I got:

As you see "Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties" is checked.

Does it need to be checked for that drive?

And also, is there anything else that I need to change in the settings to accommodate for the SSD?

A:Adjusting for a new SSD drive

Hello dc2000,

I personally have opted to uncheck that option because the inherent speed of the SSD is adequate for searches without the need for indexing (which runs as a background process). You can uncheck it but be aware that your SSD will take off like a shot and unindex everthing it has indexed thus far (takes a bit of time to complete). Now, as far as optimizing the SSD, there are plenty of tutorials but the only other option that I recommend is to turn off defrag on a scheduled basis. Windows 8 has an inherent function called TRIMS and that is all that is needed to keep you SSD running smoothly. The other stuff, like turning off super-fetch, etc, I don't even bother with. Good luck.

Its still in the same place, however the options there only reflect those that are available on the graphics adapter you are using.

Do you have the right drivers? Default Windows drivers probably don't give you the options but if there is a manufacturers driver available it may.

I replaced my old Centon memory with the C-Link memory, hoping the system would adjust the voltage accordingly. However, system information for windows informs me that the memory is still operating at 2.5V. Is this going to cause me problems? And if it is going to cause me problems, how do I go about adjusting the memory voltage. I am using an Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe mainboard for reference.

Intel (R) Core(TM) i7-5500 CPU @ 2.40Ghz(RAM) 8.00 GB64 bit I have a problem with audio on my laptop. It keeps automatically adjusting itself based on the volume level. In YouTube or iTunes, the same thing happens: If I turn the volume DOWN, the pc will adjust the volume to sound as if it never was adjusted. Same with the other way around: Turn it UP and it will adjust the volume DOWN. The only reliable way to adjust volume is by manually going into the HP Speaker control to keep the volume at a certain 'maximum'. It has nothing to do with Beats Audio, I tested it by turning Beats on and off. Also, Beats has no options for an "automatic volume adjustment" feature. My audio device is: "Speaker/HP Realtek High Definition Audio". In this device's Properties, there is no option tab for "Automatic Loudening". The only tabs are: 'General', 'Levels' and 'Advanced'. None of these have the option of disabling 'Automatic Volume Loudening Adjustment.'Also, I am using headphones plugged into the jack...but I'm not sure if that makes any difference?  

A:Volume keeps automatically adjusting itself. Help?

Hello @C-O-Z-M-O-S, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I read your post about the volume automatically adjusting, and wanted to assist you! You can try going into the Volume Mixer, and adjusting the System Sounds, to see if that works.  There is a Communications tab, with additional options.  Adjusting that option may resolve the issue for you.  Here is a link to help you with this: How to Disable Auto System Sounds Leveling in Windows 7 Please let me know if this information was helpful by clicking the "thumbs up" below.Have a great weekend!

I have a Gateway FPD1976W 19" widscreen monitor with a res of 1400x900. and I have the latest graphics card for my GeForce 8600 gt. Ever since I installed an os other than the OEM everytime I login I have to click the autoadjust button. It's gotten to be a habit but lately it's been REALLY bad. When I login the screen is usually almost half way disappeared and the other half is left with just blackness.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

A:Needing to keep adjusting monitor

I don't think there is a fix for that. My monitor does that sometimes and I have to press the auto adjust button.

Hey there,

My laptop keyboard is illuminated, but it turns off after a few seconds of not typing. Is there a setting somewhere, that allows me to increase the time it stays lit for?

Thanks.

A:Adjusting luminated keyboard?

I haven't seen one for the XPS 1645 so far, so I assume it may be in your user manual or in the BIOS.

I've installed a (canopus) video capture card into a PC (motherboard Microstar MS7091, P4 550 running at 3.4GHz with a 800MHz FSB. It supports Hyperthreading and comes with a 1MB cache, with XP Home). The PCI Latency Timer for the capture card needs to be at least 60 but is presently at 32. My BIOS won't allow me to change it. Does anyone know of any other methods to adjust this?
