Adjusting screen resolution

Q: Adjusting screen resolution

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.

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.)

That's a pretty high resolution. Sometimes resolutions are listed that a monitor doesn't support. Where you able to set it there before?

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I looked around a little and found one other thread with a similar question, but the question wasn't really answered. I can't find anything on the net that doesn't confuse me so bad it makes my head hurt, so I thought I'd try asking here. Thanks in advance for any answers I get.

I will try and be as thorough as possible, although the resulting question will be simple. I'll start out with why I am asking the question to begin with.

So I am trying to play a game I used to play nearly ten years ago. It's a free online game called Continuum/Subspace and there are user created "zones" or variations of the game within the game (if that makes sense). I play in a zone called Trench Wars. It's a top down game, meaning you are looking down at your ship as if from above and the screen scrolls as you move to reveal more of the area (map) you are playing in. You are in a spaceship of your choice with varying weapons for each ship. The game requires aiming at your enemies before firing at them and anticipating their moves.

Well I noticed that playing at a higher resolution allows you to see more of your immediate area and expands your view of the map. It works just like your desktop in essence. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons, but the more space you have. In the game, the higher the resolution, the smaller the ships are, but you can see more space around you. Obviously, this would give an advantage to anyone playing ... Read more

A:Forcing Screen Resolution Higher Than Native Resolution

Simple answer is: you can not go over the native resolution of LCD panel because its physical thing for each pixel lcd panel has a cell you can not have more pixels than there is physical pixels in that panel.

smaller than native resolutions achieved by grouping more than one cell to form pixel thats why non native resolution on lcd sometimes gets blurry or edgy

This problem started happening about a week ago and I've never had a problem like this before. The problem is that often (but not always) when I start a game, it goes into full screen and it will usually change the resolution like mosts games do, except when I either exit the game normally, or alt+tab out of it, the resolution does not change back to normal. I have my desktop resolution set at 1024x768 normally. This seems to hold true for almost all my games. Even the windows screensaver causes the same problem if it changes the resolution.

After this happens, if I go into display properties and try to change any settings whether it is resolutuon, color depth, or even the refresh rate. I get an error that says it can't be done and I probably don't have administrative rights. The only way to fix it is to reboot the computer.

My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce4 MX 420. Around when the probelms started I updated the drivers to some beta drivers from the Nvidia site. I assumed those might be the cause so I downgraded to the latest official foreceware drivers which I had installed before. The only other things I can think of that I have installed before the problem occoured was the new Microsoft Anti-spyware but I doubt that would have caused it.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this problem? I am out of ideas...

I just bought an HP Pavillion dv6-7014nr and I love it! Except for one thing. I upgraded to the 1920x1080 screen to get the HD quality and the matte display. Everything on this screen is so tiny, its uncomfortable to read. I have increased the text size in windows to 130% dpi and I have downloaded and extension in Firefox to keep the zoom level I like. My problem is that with this increased DPI setting, the text in programs, such as iTunes gets cut off or overlaps. I was just wondering if there was a solution to this problem, or is it just something I have to live with?
Thanks very much!

A:[SOLVED] 1920x1080 screen resolution on a 15.6" Laptop Screen

1920x1080 doesn't suit everyone on a 15.6" screen as it's really more suited to large-screen external monitors (20" or more). It's big plus of course is that it gives you much more screen space to use for multi-tasking or using apps which have many palettes (like Photoshop). Personally I think 1920x1080 is way too high for the average laptop screen size unless you've got perfect eyesight.

If you don't need all that space, you may find that setting a lower resolution (and changing DPI & zoom levels back to their defaults) is more in line with what your eyesight can deal with. It probably won't look as pin-sharp as the native 1920x1080 resolution though, but at least you shouldn't get some app Windows extending beyond the screen edges.

Hi SevenUltimate welcome to the forums

I see you have a Geforce 220, I have the 210, the model down from you and have exactly the same issue.

Firstly, yes it's a driver issue. I have had to roll back to 258 edition to get it working properly again.

Take a look at my post about it here: Make Full screen actually look full screen maybe the suggestions will work for you, although they didn't for me.

Failing that, I'm willing to upload the 258 edition drivers to my Skydrive if you want? (mods/admins: please let me know if this is against the rules, don't think it is, but you never know)

Hello,

Here's my problem:

I have windows 7 ultimate (64bit) and i just got a new HP w2007v monitor (1680x 1050).
The problem is that i can't use the monitors native resolution.
Im useing an ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics card. I have tried Vista drivers too but they didn't work. I have also tried to make a new driver with Powerstrip but i couldn't use the driver that I made.

Is there a solution for this kind of a problem or do I really have to wait till Microsoft or ATI comes out with theire solution? The closest i can use is 1600x 1200 but it kinda disturbes the eye.

Could anyone tell me how to fix this problem and how could I use my monitors native resolution?

Thank you!

A:Screen Resolution

Hello Lill, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you currently using the latest Windows 7 64-bit 10.3 ATI drivers?

Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM


It looks like your monitor currently does not support 64-bit drivers at all. It only has 32-bit Vista drivers available for it that most likely could be used in 32-bit Windows 7 as well.

Select your operating system HP w2007v 20 inch LCD Monitor - HP technical support (Turkey - English)


If having the 64-bit ATI drivers installed do not help, then you might consider installing the 32-bit Windows 7 instead and using the 32-bit ATI driver along with the 32-bit Vista monitor driver to see if you can select your native resolution afterwards.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

So I was messing around with my resolution and got onto one which looked nice in thepreview.
I chose it, tv/monitor went blue and big 'mode not supported'

No problem, I rebooted in safe mode and was in 600x480 or something, so I changed to another and it was also zNot supported.

Whenever I load up regular or safe mode iget 'mode not supported.' and cannot see or do any thing.

I tried booting from windows disk and it said to do a system restore I need to
'specify which windows Installation' i wish to restore, and then asks me to restart - I HAVE ONE I STALLATION!

someone help me ): tried on a different monitor too,ut doesn't support it either.

Lastly, sorry for any mistakes, sent hastily from my phone.

A:Screen Resolution to big

What Windows build are you using and what sort of connection do you use to connect to your monitor, DVI or VGA.

It can be allot more helpful if you fill in your system specs, you can see the link on the bottom left side of the post.

Ok, so I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
I have ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics & ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series
I have went to AMD official website and download their cataclyst and I have updated all my display drivers.
I am using a 36" Insignia TV for my Computer Monitor and it's connected
via a VGA cable.
Now AMD VISION Engine Control Center says:
Maximum Reported Resolution: 1920x1080
Maximum Reported Refresh Rate: 75Hz

How come I can only put my Resolution to: 1360x768

Even in the AMD VISION Engine Control Center I change the
Monitor Attributes to Maximum Resolution: 1920x1080 and Maximum Refresh rate: 75Hz
and I still can't get a higher resolution then 1360x768.

How can I fix this?

A:Screen Resolution

Maximum refresh rate of 75Hz does not mean that is where it should be run or set.

Refresh rate has to be set to what the monitor uses.
If intended to use the TV as monitor you will have to find refresh rate for the TV which 99% of the time is 60Hz on TV's and monitors.

My Samsung monitor is one of the 1% which is rare.

Hello,
I have a Compaq EVO D51S SFF which I had plugged to my LCD TV as a media centre, just to watch movies and all. I had not connected this computer to the internet because I did not have a wireless card.
I finally installed a wireless card, and then windows started doing all sorts of updates as expected (since the version on the SFF was SP2).
Once windows was done with the updates, I started having problems with the screen resolution. The SFF does not have a stand alone video card, so I had set the resolution at 1024 x 768, and this worked just fine before the updates.
Now, the resolution keeps changing and this is a problem because the LCD TV gives me a message saying "Resolution Not Supported", so I can't use the computer unless I connect it to a regular computer monitor, select 1024x768, and then connect to the TV. I connect via VGA port, not DVI (don't have DVI).
Any suggestions on how to fix this?

For some reason, my native screen resolution will no longer fit my monitor. (1360x768)

I've updated my graphics card driver (NVIDIA GTX 650)
Auto Adjust won't work

Setting the native resolution via the systems Display Settings puts me in a hyper widescreen mode with black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.

Doing the same through the NVIDIA control panel however, makes the screen fit vertically, but extend way past the edge of the screen to the left. using Auto Adjust still not working after this.

I am at my wits end and have no idea what to do. pls halp

EDIT:

I'm using windows 10, 64-bit OS if that's relevant :)

A:Screen resolution won't fit

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Try removing your graphics driver using this tool here:

Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 15.7.5.5

Then reinstall it using GeForce Experience.

I have a Dell Inspiron computer with Win 7 Pro Installed.  I also have an Acer S200HQL flat screen monitor.  Dell and Acer would not help me.  When the screen resolution (via the control panel) is set to 1600x900 (the recomended value) any resizable form overfills the screen.  Only a sliver at the top of screen shows.  I can barely make out the minimize, maximize and exit buttons.  When I set the resolution to a lower value (any available values between 1280x1024 and 1600x900) the form fits correctly virtically, but is streched horizontally.  Maybe I can set the values to non displayed choices?  I tried to upgrate the monitor driver.  I am running the most current driver. 
 
Any options, any solutions would be greatly appreciated
 
Thanks

A:Screen Resolution

Resolved somehow.  Found on line a document, poorly written by Acer about the buttones on the underside of the monitor.  Played withe buttons for about an hour.  Lost the screen many times.  Finally it came back without overflow or streching.

Hello to anyone who might be able to help. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 running on Vista. I recently had the Geek Squad provide support as my laptop was running very slow. They completed all updates and everything seemed fine. I then purchased a Logitech HD web cam and downloaded Skype. Now, every time I boot the screen resolution changes to 800 x 600 and I must go in and change it back manually. I have done a bit of research but am confused as to what the issue might be. I have completed all updates for Vista and the driver. I am only slightly computer literate and would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

A:Screen Resolution Changes

I saw this happen once on a customer's PC. He somehow managed to change one of his desktop shortcuts for Mozilla Thunderbird email.

The shortcut properties' compatibility tab was checked off for 256 colors @ 640x480 resolution. Every time he started Thunderbird, his resolution would change and then not change back once he got out of the program.

Maybe start with Skype. You have to right-click on the desktop program shortcut, select 'properties' and look at the compatibility tab for it, and then maybe for each program that starts automatically when Windows starts. I hope that's what it is and you find the culprit

okey so here is my 3 problem i post on this site
Didnt have a XP CD for the other pc so i couldnt fix it... ( one quick question, will an XP home edition CD from a buddy work on my pc, to do a repair install?)

I have 2 pc, the one that is now broken had 1 ghz AMD XP pro 128 mb ram ( no good i know), the other is a pentium 133 mhz 32 mb ram win 98 ( a bit worse)

Okey i did this and here is my problem. I used the 133 mhz pc, worked good, managed to get internet running so i could use it a bit. It was just so slow... SO i took the harddisk from it and installed it in the 1 ghz computer ( first time i did it, wasnt too hard). It worked not perfectly but i got it running normal, im running it now. AMD 1 ghz 128mb ram (old harddisk) 1 !! GB!! awesome...

Anyway, know I spell like a freak but i hate the screen resolution. I cant change it, its on lowest possible 640*480 16 ! colours. fixed that problem on a way on the other pc after switching harddisk and got it working but now i cant install new drivers. NVIDIA Inno32 Geforce 2 MX/400 graphic card. After downloading drivers from different sites including Nvidia, tried to install from video CD i get this wrong.

The program couldnt find any NVIDIA graphics card. It wont find my card... what to do. Can it have anything to do with that I use an old harddisk, 1 GB.

summary.

* Fix screen resolution
* install "old" graphic card that worked on 1 ghz computer
* XP home edition works ? ( to fix old problem) ... Read more

A:Screen resolution etc..

1). Yes the XP home edition would work fine on a repair install (assuming you are repairing a XP home edition computer, it won't repair a 98 install or XP pro). Just make sure you have your original cd-key just in case

2). Once you fix your video card problem, the resolution will fix itself. Look in your device manager (control panel > system > device manager) and look for either: a yellow exclamation mark next to a device, or a device that is listed under "Display adapter". If you find either of those post back and let us know.

3). You can more than likely transfer the video card from the older computer to the newer one, assuming you have a 3rd party card, and its not built into the motherboard. But honestly, coming from a computer that old, the video card isn't going to be worth a dang, in fact that whole computer is probably worth very little. (no offense, it just sounds like a very old computer)

One quick follow up question: When you installed the 1GB harddrive did you uninstall the other harddrive? or did you install the 1GB as a slave?
