Preferred Solution: lost display resolution adjustment

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.)

Good day all I have installed Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on an old Lenovo G550. It used to work well on Windows 7, but now I cannot install or update the display drivers in order to connect an external display (LG 49" TV) at 1920 x 1080. Windows installed its own useless drivers that obtains at least 1366 x 768 on both the laptop and the TV when displays are duplicated. Then the highest I can go is 1366 x 768. When I select "Show only on 2" (which is essentially what I want to do), it goes down to an even worse display resolution, but this also disables the Resolution drop-down.  I have downloaded every version of drivers know to God and man from Lenovo's and other sites, but all of them tells me: "This computer does not meet the minimum requirement for installing software." I have deleted the driver and reinstalled via "Scan for hardward changes" as well. I have done a Windows update as well. I have no idea what to do next. How do I fix this stupid problem? Please help me. Thank you in advance.Kind regardsRenier

Have a GTX 560TI gpu running W10 and a Samsung S23C650 monitor
normally set to 1970 x 1080
Today a driver update program was run (Drive Booster 4) to check for driver update, and now I have only 1024 x 768 as max resolution - assume the driver update program did this. (though 'could' be coincidence)

If I go to settings it only shows 1024 x 768 (or lower)
If I go to Nvidia control panel it also only shows 1024 x 768 and lower

The adapter states driver is 21.21.13.7290
Monitor is shown as Generic plug & play - there is no W10 driver on Samsung site

I tried system restore to before Driver update run - this has not cleared the fault.
 

A:Display resolution lost

Use System Restore to roll back before you ran that utility. Then I'd promptly uninstall that utility and never use any such utility again as they are not needed and cause these sort of issues.

You can manually choose to update the drivers at any time using the proper manufacturer's installation program from their website which is located here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers

The monitor does need a driver, only the video card.

I just bought a new laptop, and a glitch has developed where by lowering my resolution, the size of the screen decreases, leaving black space around the outside. This is particularly annoying in games that do not play at my computer's native resolution, and therefore run in a rectangle half the size of my screen. If anyone can help with this, I'd be very grateful. thanx

I stumbled upon an old XP desktop appearance adjustment in Win7 which allowed me to set the spacing between desktop icons, both horizontal and vertical.

And ...

You could also choose the font and the font size and, most importantly, the icon size.

I was delighted. I could order my icons just the way I needed them for my busy desktop. But then my water-cooled processor water pump broke and spilled water in my tower. Hours later, I had an air cooler on the processor and all was right again.

Except ...

I could not remember how I came to that wonderful desktop grid adjustment box.

I searched for a long time but have not been able to track it down.

So now I wonder if any of you savvy experts could be kind enough to point the way?

Hey guys, so I upgraded to Windows 10 which caused the computer to automatically update my drivers and what not on July 29th, and here I am with a brightness adjustment that does not work whatsoever. Pretty much, whenever I press the less/more brightness buttons on my keyboard, the display will show the brightness gauge going up/down but the actual screen brightness remains constant. Yet, when I roll back the driver it manages to allow my brightness adjustment to function again, but my second monitor will not connect even though it is plugged in via HDMI. Obviously attempting to get my old Windows 8 driver will do me no good since this laptop is no longer a Windows 8. I'm pretty stumped here, especially since I'm not the best with the complex side of computers, I'd just like my brightness adjustment to work again while maintaining/keeping everything else Thank you in advance for your help

This might be nothing, but recently the buttons to adjust my brightness were not working at all on my Lenovo Yoga 710. It might have been the update to Windows 10 but I'm not sure. I don't think the laatest update was that recent and this issue is a more recent problem. I tried this: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-710-11ikb/solution... I updated my driver like it's suggested at the bottom of the page. So far it's been okay. The buttons work, although I noticed that on my most recent reboot they stopped working but this was fixed by disabling and then enabling again the Generic PnP Monitor. I'm not sure if this will become a permanent issue yet. However, I noticed that when I press the button to dim my display all the way down, it turns off my screen. The computer is still on but my display is totally black. I'm quite certain that it didn't do this before. Is it supposed to do this or am I worried about nothing? It turns back on once I press the button to increase the brightness.

Is it running at 1920 x 1080 ?

Why do you think you would see a difference ? VGA is analog and DVI is digital, that`s it, as far as I know.

The computer came with the NVidia GeForce 7300 graphics card and the Windows XP Home Edition operating system. When we tried to follow HitSquad's advice to PaulInAustin on 12/14/2006 there was no "Add" button in the window for screen resolutions and refresh rates.

Samsung technical help tells us to call Dell, and Dell tech support seems clueless about this problem. With all the widescreen displays being sold, surely they've addressed this issue!

Hi fishinswede, welcome to BC.There should be a driver disc for the monitor itself that came in the box. Did you install it and is windows identifying the correct monitor model?And just so we're on the same page, you did also first uninstall the old drivers then re-install the upgraded drivers (forceware 93.71) for the video card itself from the Nvidia link here?You may also wish to try a somewhat older version here. It's the one I still use because it's the most stable I have found for my system.The only reason I can see that the add button wouldn't be there is that the monitor is not being identified correctly, either because of the driver or the monitor itselfIf you have done the above and have another monitor laying around, preferably a crt, temporarily hook it up and see if the "add" button is now an option. If it is, add the new resolution settings then hook up your new monitor. It's a long shot but worth a try. You also want to start in a lower resolution then the one you're trying to add. Bump it down to an ugly 800x600, then see if the add button is an option. You should altimatetly end up with a menu resembling thisLet us know what you come up with.

I have a two PCs on the same subnet, hardwired into the same router. Every night they timeout and sleep, Every morning my KVM software Microsoft's Mouse without Borders complains (on each PC) that it cannot find the other PC.

Both PCs have fixed (not dynamic) IPv4 addrs. The mouse software (which is used to cursor/cut/paste across multiple PCs using only the mouse and keyboard of one PC, operates on IPv4. Both PCs are configured so the software has the fixed IP associated to the name as backup to any dynamic name lookup. IPconfig shows the ipv4 values are correct. Both PCs seem to web browse just fine.

Some have suggested to disable IPv6, but that causes certain other software networking issues on the web.

So, to wrap up a long story, I came across a forum that hinted at an idea. I ping -4 at a command line on each PC to contact the other PC. SURE ENOUGH! As soon as ping sorted out the IPv4 connection and started showing reply packets, Mouse without Borders started working!!

What went on on in Windows to wake up IPv4 and how do I configure Windows to keep using it without having to wake it when the PCs come out of sleep? Yeah, I might put a script in, as a work around, but what's the real fix?

I'm guessing, someone here knows enough about netsh interface ipv6 show prefixpolicies to know if protocol priorities would fix this and how to use them.

Hi all! I actually have a few things going wrong with my monitor. It's a 24" Gateway HDMI monitor (FHD2401), 1920x1200 resolution, very crisp and beautiful for gaming, etc. It's been working fine ever since it was given to me by my father (he used it for quite a while beforehand), but then I turned the monitor on this morning and the display was COMPLETELY messed up. The desktop was overlapped, with the taskbar halfway up the screen and the rest of the screen split twice on the bottom. I tried turning the screen off and back on, that changed nothing. I restarted the computer--nothing. Even the boot up logos and system readouts were all spliced across the screen. Each time I tried to reset the screen, it would just make it worse.

I tried re-downloading and installing the nvidia graphics driver for the graphics card, nothing. Rolled back the computer, nothing. I shut down the computer and checked the connector cord and pins, they all looked to be in good order. I toyed with the resolutions in the system's properties AND in the nvidia resolution settings, and both gave the same result--the more I messed with it, the worse it got, right down to wiggly bars and ghosting images mixed in with the splicing and overlapping. I could hardly use the monitor. Right now, it won't display at anything higher than 1400x900. I tried searching for a driver for my monitor at Gateway, and found nothing.

Hi all,

I have a Toshiba Satellite, 1800-700. It originally came with Win ME and I have bought aditional memory and upgraded to XP Pro.

Since then, even though the Display in Control Panel says it is on Highest (32 bit) as it was when on ME, the resolution of the display and colour has gone markedly downhill. I can't seem to get it any higher than at present and there doesn't appear to be any difference in quality between 32 and 16 Bit.

I have downloaded drivers across the board from the Toshiba site for all manner of other areas but display driver upgrades cannot be located (at Toshiba).

My display driver card is currently Trident Video Accelerator CyberBlade-Ai1 - which was for ME. I've looked around to see what could be a suitable upgrade but at this point I am floundering. I am guessing this is where the problem lies but if not please say. Otherwise if a pointer could be given from where to d/l a replacement, I would appreicate the help.

Many thanks.

I recently bought a new computer from Dell. It's a Dell Optiplex 780. Here in the office, we run three 19" displays per computer, so I had them install an Nvidia Quadro NVS 420 graphics card. The specs on the card from Nvidia's website say that it supports up to four displays at "2560x1600 through DisplayPort, 1920x1200 through Single Link DVI-D". I actually called Nvidia and asked them specifically if the card supports 1024x1280 @60Hz resolution, and they say it does.

In setting up the computer, I connected a Dell P190Sb monitor. The specifications on the monitor say the native resolution is 1280 x 1024 @60 Hz. The problem is that I cannot select that resolution in the resolution dialog box. I get choices of 1280x720, 1024x768, and 800x600.

So, if the monitor supports it, the graphics card supports it, why can't I select the appropriate resolution for the monitor?

I have downloaded and updated the video drivers from Nvidia's website. In trouble shooting with Dell's tech support, we updated the Bios and monitor drivers, and still no resolution to the problem. Dell is ready to have us ship the systems back to them (we bought two).

I found a number of articles online complaining about the way Windows Vista and Windows 7 use the EDID data that is supposed to be supplied by the monitor. In reading this thread:

Give this a go. I posted it up and it worked twice in the last two weeks for others.

Just in case Click the picture below and it gets bigger.

Right click an open area of the desktop then go down the list to Nvidia Control Panel. Left click it. This takes you to Nvidia Change Resolution page. See pic below.
1)Select monitor- your new one should be outlined all ready. If more than one connected select the monitor you wish to set.

2) Select PC resolution. As you see mine is 1440x900 at 75MHz.
Almost all monitors use setting at 60MHz so yours should be 60 MAYBE 75MHz.
If your resolution is in this list you are done. Close page.
Only go to Step 3 if yours isn't listed at Step 2.
Custom Resolutions as the ones I have shown are totally unstable with MY monitor. So don't go further unless necessary.
3) If your Resolution isn't listed click "Customize"
4) Select a PC res that may work. You can always change or try others.
5) Click OKAY to accept and try.

Hi

Did you try to reinstall the Intel display driver?
Uninstall the Intel graphic driver firstly. Then download the compatible driver from the Toshiba driver page and install this?

But before doing this try this short workaround:
- Disconnect the AC adaptor

Before upgrade I had a max screen size of 1280 x 800, and if I set to a smaller size, the image still filled the screen. This size is of course WXGA .
Since upgrade I have a max of 1028 x 768 which does not fill the screen, and if I choose a smaller one,e.g. 800 x 600, the image visibly shrinks still further.
I am told that I may need a new driver ; now the machine specification, and the label on the machine say the graphics is Nviidia GeForce Go 7400 GPU , but when I look at Device Manager it says that the Display adaptor is " Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor"
Have I somehow ( in the upgrade) lost the Nvidia set and gone to something else on the motherboard ?
And how can I get my full screen back ?

A:Lost screen resolution after upgrade to Win7

its because your drivers for your GPU have not been installed so its not recognized.

Hello!

I have a pc connected to a regular monitor and to a plasma tv, I would like to have the same setup on win7 as I have on winxp meanning that when I set my desktop resolution to 1920x1080 (highest res. for the TV) my monitor (the display is cloned) displays it's own max resolution (1680x1050) only you can move the mouse and 'move the screen' a bit when you touch the edges as there is more desktop space then the monitor can see in one picture.

To my dismay win7 won't allow me to set 1920x1080 but will go as much as my monitor can go (if I turn of the monitor then it will) so is there any way to make it work like on xp, I hate it when features like this get removed and the os is 10 years more advanced, at least give us an option

A:Dual display on win 7 resolution

Currently I believe the latest ATI display drivers allow for this, or will in the update next month.

Hello! Just today I started using a brand new monitor for my HP laptop. It's pretty old, I'd had it for quite a while now. It's a SyncMaster 2043 SNX, and I have managed to get it to fill the screen with a bad 1280x720 resolution. My Native monitor resolution is 1600x900 on my laptop; is there any way to make it fill the external monitor with it's Native resolution?

Thanks!

Okay, first off, I know this is a very odd question.

I have a small display I want to use with an old junky PC. The software I am going to run on it would get by with 320x240 display res, or 320x200, or if possible, 275x 232. The thing is, of course, those aren't common resoloutions for use in MS windows. I want to run either Windows 98 SE, or Windows 95b.

Is there any way to tweak anything to force Windows to use any of the above mentioned display resolutions? Or are there drivers out there that I just haven't stumbled upon?

Thanks alot,

Nic

I am brand new to Windows 10, and have a fresh install. My display looks like the resolution is set too high. I right click on the desktop, select display settings, click on advanced display settings, and there I see that the resolution is 1366 X 768 and it is greyed out so I cannot change it here. It is a 17" monitor and this resolution seems too high. Is there any way to change it?

I picked up a used dell inspirion 1100 laptop (2003 model) that has XP Home installed. The display shows only one option for screen resolution, 8-bit. I have tried updating and then uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the Intel GI, but with no change. I have it set up on a wireless network. The GI is a chipset on the motherbord. Am I correct in thinking that I cannot replace this? Can I go and buy a USB video card and plug it in to correct this, disabling the other onboard one? I called a local computer repair shop and they said they should be able to resolve it for about $45 and that it sounds to them like a software issue, not hardware....... any thoughts ?
 

A:only get 8 bit resolution for display on laptop

No, you can't connect a video adapter via USB. If you've installed the correct drivers without error, I'd suspect a hardware problem. Perhaps that's why it was sold. Did you talk to the people you bought it from?

One day everything was fine, the next the option to change the resolution was greyed out and stuck at 656 x 496. The name of the monitor comes up as strange symbols. I reinstalled drivers, searched google, can't seem to find a fix for this problem. As you can imagine, it's impossibly awkward to use.

I've tried reinstalling all drivers to the latest versions; still nothing changed.

I've attached pictures of what I mean.

Windows 7 home premium 36bit
Asus z87 pro motherboard/graphics
Intel i3 Processor
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 (2x4GB ram)
Samsung 225MW monitor

Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks!!

I built my first PC in November 2014. Everything worked flawlessly. About 2 months ago I remembered I had bought a HDMI-DVI cable for my monitor so I unplugged the VGA cable and plugged in the HDMI cable and it caused red lines all around the screen (still could see the desktop but just looked awful). I figured the cable was bad so I then plugged the VGA cable back in and instantly noticed the quality of the picture wasn't crisp anymore. Like the HD was taken out completely. Before I touched any of the cables It looked amazing, even with just the VGA cable. So I ordered a new good quality DVI cable. Nothing changed. I did some research and tried different driver updates, installs and removals, tweaked settings in Nvidia Control Panel, and still nothing( I have tried this in all the different settings of resolutions offered).

So I decided to upgrade my Monitor thinking it may have been an issue with the monitor. I bought the Dell UltraSharp U2412M after some research. While it is a noticeably nicer monitor the problem still remains. Games look horrible, the lines are jagged and the screen almost tares when I move around. It doesn't have the HD pop like it should/did. I can not find any answers or even problems that are like mine. Any ideas or help would be amazing.

About a month ago I bought another gtx 970 to see if the issue went away. The result is the same. Games are also noticeably slower. This rig should be able to play anything on 1080x1200 with out any iss... Read more
