ATI Radeon HD 4800: display resolution problem

Q: ATI Radeon HD 4800: display resolution problem

Hello,
i recently updated my graphic card driver to the newes version. But now I am not able to select the right display resolution(which is 1920x1200). The max resolution I can select is now only 1600x1200. But this Driver should definitely support this resolution.
Even if I select the option to show me all mods it won?t show me more options.

I tried a lot of other Drivers now and even my old Driver(which worked fine) but non of them seems to work.

- Graphic Card: ATI RADEON HD 4800
- Driver: AMD-Catalyst-15.11Beta (also tried 15.7.1 and 13.4)
- Display: HP Z24i
- Windows 10 64bit Pro

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

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

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Maybe changing the graphics driver changed the monitor as well. To make sure it supports all resolutions, you have to replace the monitor with Generic PnP monitor. Click on the search icon and type device. Click to open the Device Manager, then expand monitors, right-click on the monitor and select Update driver. Select last option a couple of times and you should see a list with models. Uncheck the box Show compatible models to see all models. Then from standard monitors select Generic PnP monitor and install it.

Another thing to try is to change the resolution from Catalyst Control Center, monitor section. Or right-click on the desktop, select Display settings., then click Advanced display settings, then Display adapter properties. Finally click on List all modes, select the desired resolution and try to apply it.

I read about a similar problem, but as a novice of novices, am not sure that the solution there applies to me. I have a Dell ACPT x64 based PC (8 gig of ram) with a Dell installed ATI Radeon HD 4800 accelerator with two Samsung monitors: SyncMaster 906 BW and a 2033SW.

My problem is that almost every day and sometimes two or three times a day, my monitors freeze up and begin to flash. The computer then dumps everything and reboots. This seems to happen more often when the computer wakes up from sleep mode, but there is no definite pattern.

I am not a gamer, and therefore don't have super heavy demands on my system.

I live in Uruguay, South America, where a friend who runs a ciber cafe tells me that there is a problem with the Radeon Accelerators, and recommends replacing mine. I am certainly open to suggestions.

Thanks!!

Sound lik you need to uninstall the video driver,install your mothrboard drivers so

I have had some problems in the past with the HD 4800 drivers, where I needed to install unlicensed ones for certain games to run. And there used to be some display crashes while I played certain games on my PC. But yesterday, while playing a game, the monitor simply displayed "No signal detected" and went to a black screen. Restarting the computer didn't help, because after all the loading screens, right when it would show the desktop, it goes black. I did boot it up in safe mode, installed default Windows drivers, and boot it up in normal mode. But that only seems to make it work in normal mode for a short period of time, before it crashes again. One more thing: The motherboard screen, when booting up the pc, looks bugged out. There are some display glitches on it. So my question is: is my video card fried? Or is it a driver problem? And how do I solve it?

A:ATI Radeon HD 4800 is crashing my PC.

Also, some additional information: I am running on Windows 8.1.

And I just tried, before it crashed in normal mode, to update the drivers to the HD 4800 ones again, and it crashed to a cyan screen, and the error specified is: "VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE". Also, it might be coming from the outside, but I think I smell a soft fry smell around the pc (I clenaed it from dust yesterday).

I was able to get by for almost a year with this problem, but it's finally starting to get on my nerves.

I have a ATI Radeon HD 4890... I can run fine for a couple hours normally... but if I watch a youtube/streamed video or something, I start getting artifiacts and sometimes I'll get a message saying my drivers have stopped working or something. If I watch another video I'll get the blue screen of death... it's pretty much inevitable that my computer sessions end with the blue screen. But if I wait for 10 minutes I can just boot back up like nothing happened!

I've already tried updating the drivers numerous times... Maybe this card isn't compatible with my mobo, Gigabyte UD3H?

Help please, I'm getting desperate!

A:Had GFX problems for a year [Radeon HD 4800]

A gpu cannot be inompatible with a obo, unless you can't physically fit it in thee board.

It sounds like a heat issue, seeing as you can wait 10 minutes.

Have you checked them to see what the card gets to?

I usually recommend hwmonitor from www.cpuid.com

Temps on the gpu shouldn't be more than 70 or 80C tops

Hi.
Please help me understanding what is causing my current BSOD(s)!

I have given up myself after some weeks of on/off analyses and tries of repairs ? after reading forum posts (a very lot on this issue exists!).

I cannot decode dumps so hopefully someone here can interpret the data attached to something useful and point out the cure for my problem.

Bottom line of my somewhat long story below is that I cannot get rid of the 116 stop code ? which means that I cannot utilize my ATI Radeon HD 4800 video card device anymore.

try reinstalling the driver if you can, or get e newer version if there is one. if you can't get it off of that pc, burn the driver onto a disc from another computer, and put in the problematic one and quickly install driver

or you could set the screen to default settings while you install driver e.g. (My laptop) Intel Series 4 Express Chipset Standard Monitor. Or Standard VGA Resolution.

Hi everyone,

I' running Windows 7 ultimate 64bits in a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 (T5600-1.83GHz, 3GB RAM, 14.1 in 1400x1050 LCD, 128MB ATI Radeon X1400), and I find a some troubles with my screen resolution.

When using Windows XP, I could install the ATI drivers and have a 1440x1050 resolution. After installing W7, if I install the ATI drivers as Windows Update suggest, I can't reach the maximum resolution allowed by my screen (1440x1050).

I use, so, for the moment, the standard VGA driver adapter, which allows to go to maximum resolution, but I don't have any possibility to manage parameters with catalyst software.

So here is the question : standard adapter with good resolution but no catalyst software, or catalyst software without good resolution.

I tried downloading drivers from everywhere (Lenovo and Ati sites included), and the problem remains.

Any advice?

Thanks!

A:ATI Radeon X1400 under windows 7: resolution problem

EESS welcome to the Seven Forums. One reason you're having problems getting a driver to install is that there is no Windows 7 driver for any ATI graphics cards made before the HD 2xxx series as ATI has declared all of them legacy and stopped support. There is a legacy Vista driver for Vista,

ATI Catalyst

that wo0rks with all desktop cards in that situation, but I doubt it will install on the laptop variants of them. Probably find that the one being offered through WU is the same as (or a laptop equivalent) the one linked above only made for laptops. It also won't contain the CCC in it.

With that said does Lenovo have a Vista driver for your particular model? If so and you haven't tried, it, give it a go and it should work. If there is and it won't install, installing using compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

should get it to install.

So I just hooked up a new dell optiplex 780 in our conference room to a projector and the projector is not displaying anything.

The problem is that windows is setting it's resolution to 1920x1080 but the highest resolution it can handle is 1600x1200 so it's not displaying anything at all.

The computer is using onboard intel graphics and also has a dvi add on card for use with the on board graphics and the driver is up to date.

I have the projector connected to the dvi add on card using these dvi over ethernet adapters by iogear: IOGEAR - GVE200 - DVI-D CAT5e/6 MiniExtender, which is why I think windows is detecting it as a 1920x1080 display.

I also have a monitor hooked up to the vga port.

Here's what I found out:

After realizing I did not have any video displaying through the projector I hooked up the monitor and was able to clone and/or extend but only the monitor was working. So I changed the resolution on the projector down from 1920x1080 to 1600x1200 and it starts working fine.

As soon as I unhook the monitor, though I think windows switches back to single display mode and switches its resolution back to 1920x1080. If I leave the monitor connected and change the setting to display through the projector only, it does the same thing setting the resolution too high for it to display anything.

The problem is it won't let me change the resolution before switching to display through the projector only. After you change the setting to display through the project... Read more

A:Display Resolution Problem

Are you running any Video configuration software? Sometimes Aplications can cause this problem.
Another thing could be a problem with the windows registry or even the hard drive.

Try setting Display adapter to "Standard PCI Graphics Adapter VGA", then reboot a couple times to clear up the registry, then reload the latest video drivers and see if that resolved the problem.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RC (6.1.7100)
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT, driver version 185.81 (the latest version on nvidia.com at the moment)
Monitor: LG Flatron F920P (CRT)

After Windows installation has completed the display resolution was set to 1600x1200, 85 Hz, 32 bpp. In this mode text is too small and blurry so I decided to lower the resolution to 1280x960 as I alwas did in Windows Vista. This also allows me to set refresh rate to 100 Hz. But the display resolution didn't chage - I confirmed this through the menu in monitor. Instead I got a smaller image with black space around it and it didn't make text any larger or sharper. 100 Hz is not available either. That is the size of desktop became 1280x960 but this image is rendered in 1600x1200 mode in the center of the screen.

How can I set real display resolution to 1280x960 and not just the size of desktop?

Hi Friends,
For past one year,I am using hp pavilion notebook dv6700 with following configuration
Intel Core2Duo 2.1 Gh
4MB RAM,250GB Hard disk
Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS 256 MB graphics card(latest updated driver as on 21.02.09)
Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit with SP1 integrated

About three weeks back I uninstalled Microsoft office 2007 and after that I noticed that although the resolution of my laptop display is adjusted to maximum at 1280X800 but the icons appear a little blur at their edges and the messages boxes that open do not show all the matter and commands that are there (screenshot attached).
I have scanned my window?s registry and also I have checked all the files with scannow option but nothing was found wrong anywhere and also all the drivers are working properly. But I cannot change the resolution by any means and my problem remains the same.
Can anyone help me out please?
Thanx in advance.

your resolution is correct, your DPI settings are not.
right click your desktop anywhere, click on personalization, on the left of that window should be an option saying adjust font size (DPI), in that new window, your font size, if im correct should be set at 120 DPI, set it to 96 DPI and restart, this should fix the issue

Hi all. So I turned on my laptop (Dell inspiron e1505, Vista Home ed, W/ NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 graphics driver) and the screen was divided into 4 quadrants, with the same thing on each. After 2 restarts, its back to full screen, yet the resolution won't go above 1024 x 768.

System info on the graphics card reads "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

Also, there is a reported problem with Microsoft ISATAP Adapter 2, which reads "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

Not sure what the second thing is. Any ideas on what the problem is or how to fix it? The laptop is a couple months shy of being 4 years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

A:Display/ Resolution Problem

I tried re-installing the graphics card driver, but no dice.

Also, oddly, my computer has refused to hibernate today.

Seem like two unrelated problems however they both appeared on the same day.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be much obliged.

The last few days, after having computer on for 5 hours or so, the screen goes blank and shuts down.
When I restart it the screen resolution is way lower than it should be at 1920x1200 for a 24" screen.
The display is almost like it is in safe mode but after booting up it doesn't say safe mode.
I go into change resolution and it shows 800x? a very low resolution and that box is grey and won't allow me to change it to 1920x1200.

Is this a sign of the card going bad or is there a quick fix for this problem?

If I turn it off for an hour or two it will boot up with the correct resolution. No it is not set for hibernating.
Any and all help appreciated.

Have you checked temperatures ?
Maybe it is overheating for a faulty fan or dust ???
HWMonitor has a free version that might help.

They also have a portable/standalone version if you don't want to install it.

I have Lenovo G50-70 with a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 as default and recommended by Windows. Now with this reslution, everything is so small. text, buttons, pictures, etc and it's very hard to work on it.I tried to change the resolution many times but then the display looses its sharpness and clarity, all graphics get dull and loos their sharpness too. Besides this, windows keeps popping up a message to change the display to 1920 x 1080.It was the same when I bought this laptop with Windows 8 and it is the same with Windows 10. No update could fix this problem.The only solution I could do is to "Set a custom scaling level" which does make text normal for comfort viewing but the graphics are not clear. Besides many programs still remain small.I would really appreciate the help to fixing my problem. The display adaptors?

Windows Systemax XP pro SP3: I had to reinstall it, (CD for Windows, and on-line updates for SP3) and now I cannot get it to set 1680 x 1050 resolution for my Acer V223W monitor.
I have no video card, just the motherboard chipset.

It worked fine before the re-installation. I've been through all the settings, (including advanced - list all modes) but there is simply no 1680 x 1050 selection available, and I can find no way to input the setting I need.

Maybe a clue: Belarc Advisor says it can't discover the Display.

I went to ACER, and downloaded a new driver, but it came in a format (ICM) that Windows cant handle, so I can't use it.

I've tried Windows Update, but it crashes the website, (don't know why) and so I'm about at the end of the string.

I sure would be happy for an answer.

Hello everyone

Can you help?

I am running Windows XP Pro and am having trouble with the way colours display at times and am wondering if anyone has any ideas.

If I have my display settings on Highest (32 bit) some of my icons on taskbars/toolbars get a pink shadow behind them for some reason (see attachment - Bar). If I revert to the only other choice which is Medium (16 bit) the pink shadows disappear but the desktop wallpaper and all other images appear 'bitsy/blurred/blotchy or not as sharp' (sorry, I don't know how better to describe it). I have attached also some other files to perhaps assist any of you in trying to work out why this happens.

Obviously I would like all the images and icons to be as sharp and clear as possible without the pink background, but don't have any idea about what I can do to fix the problem.

It gets a bit frustrating when you find an image for wallpaper that you would really like, but when displayed it doesn't show up as crisp as it could (when on 16 bit).

Am I missing something here?

Any help or advice would be ever so appreciated, and I look forward to hearing from anyone with some ideas.

Bye for now, and thanks in anticipation.

A:Colour resolution / display problem

Looking at your pic it seems to me that not all the icons have this shadow. I would simply guess that the shadow is part of the graphic itself, but is in a color which 16-bit cannot display. I, personally, would stick with 32-bit for the best resolution, and learn to live with the "bonus" of having a few pink (fuschia) shadows.

Question that I could not find an answer for on Google before I buy. I currently have a Dell 6420 using Win 7 SP1 with a 1366 X 768 display that I have the text set at 125% so I can read it. What display is going to look better on an X1 Carbon if I use that setting, the 2560 x 1440 WQHD IPS LED Display or the 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS LED Display using Win 7 Pro?

Hi guys
Im in a serious problem, and have no one else to turn to. I live in a remote place (maldives) so i cant take the card for repair if its really broke.
heres the problem.
I use windows xp with service pack 3. I upgraded ( or degraded) my graphics card from a Nvidia Geforce card ( dont remember version) to a Ati graphics card. When my pc came it already had all divers installed. Then i faced problems and reinstalled xp.
I didnt care much to upadate the graphic driver as it was working fine.It said my Graphic card was a Ati Radeon 9200 and Ati Radeon 9200 secondary card (both displayed in device manager, my Acer AF715 monitor(plug and play) was on Radeon 9200)
then i got few colors our of line in monitor ( not a problem, really) and thought to update the driver. So i downloaded Ati Catalyst suite for my card and installed it.When i restarted my boot screen had broken lines an dots on screen and log on screen didnt appear at all!!
I booted on safe mode and un installed catalyst driver and restarted.Problem didnt solve. then i again started on safe mode and set my resolution to 1024 * 768 , color depth to 16 and refresh rate to 60. This time it i could log on!
Still the lines and dots are there ( getting worse) and working at 16 depth i cant watch any movies and all!!
Now my graphic card says its Ati Radeon 9250 and Radeon 9250 secondary! Wierd!!

My sys specs:
I use mixed pc..with
Gigabyte 868p chipset
Intel pentium 4 cpu (3.00GHz)

My desktop and everything displays and loads fine. When loading programs it works fine. But when i go into games it displays things but it displays them in boxes.

For example, I tried to play Company of heroes, And all the trees, and the soldiers, and everything else pretty much was boxes.

Then i tried Rome Total War (Older game) and the same problem. The only way i could tell the difference between the horse and a soldier was the horse was a block with little blocks under it.

THEN, I tried Titan Quest. I couldnt even get into the game because all of the menu buttons were blocks and i couldnt make out anything.

I removed ALL the ATI drivers, Re-installed them, Removed them again and installed the Omega drivers and still the same problem. I havent tried reformatting yet and i hope i dont have to, But if i do then thats not a problem.

On start up the display is grainy and the colors are not true.  There is also a faint line down the middle of the display and a slight jitter visible on the screen.  Sometimes the problem clears up on its own - sometimes it does not.  The AMD/HP software is the AMD Catalyst Software Suite version  15.201.1301-150819a-188593c-HP which is the latest HP blessed release.  The AMD Graphics chipset is the AMD Radeon(TM) R6 Graphics / BIOS version 015.048.000.061.  The HP AIO is Model# 23-q152m, Product # N0X19AV#ABA.  Help!!!

hey guys, been wrestling w/ this for a week & a half now, & can't figure it out for the life of me...

have a gateway FPD2185W 21" WS monitor and an EVGA 7300GS. have been using 'em w/ vista x64 for 4 months w/ no problems (RGB; the dvi port on the crappy Gateway blew last winter).
was using my box normally, hadn't updated any drivers or installed any new apps in a while, when the screen just flickered and kicked me into an 800x600 resolution. when i tried to change it back to the monitor's native resolution (1680x1050), i found that it wasn't available anymore... the best resolution i could get was 1600x1200. when i 'check all modes', nothing above 1600x1200 is listed.
I've tried restoring to an old save point, i've tried uninstalling and re-installing 3 diff versions of the forceware drivers (incl. the most recent), i've swapped in my old x600 card & installed the latest catalyst drivers. NOTHING WORKS!!! When i plug the monitor into my old computer tho, f*ckin' bob's yer uncle... no problems whatsoever.
WHAT THE 'EFF!!!
Please someone tell me you have a solution! My eyes really hurt from looking at this fuzzy, non-native resolution!!!

A:big display problem; can't get native resolution anymore!

It would seem the graphics card and monitor aren't getting along for some reason.

Check the Monitor Driversand at the monitor in the Device Manager. Try the monitor on your integrated graphics output. This should tell you if it is a software issue (If it works fine).

Also look at the BIOS PCI-e settings and see if there is anything there that could cause the problem.

While you're at it, check your monitor panel settings (menu within monitor itself)

Good look.
