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.

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:


HF: 95.4 kHz
VF: 60.0 Hz


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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 to put together a document (text and images) which I have to keep to a maximum total size of 2mb.

I will be sending the final document by email. It will then be printed in A4.

I have been sent two 'advertisments' to include (1mb and 2mb sized ad's)in the document. Each advert contains lots of text, graphics and pics. The 2mb advert is 2241 x 3245 pixels. Resolution is 72,000.

When I compress them using MS picture manager, I can get the size down to about 350kb from its original 2 mb, but as you can imagine, the quality is really bad. Especially as the document is printed out in A4 (the advert takes up one whole A4 page)

What is the best way to compress the images without losing quality. I have access to PSP 7.

Help would be appreciate.

Many thanks

Hi guys,

Picked up a copy of windows 7 from my university today and have to return the disc to the college. I'm trying to make a copy of the disc so if anything happens in the future I'll have the disc and be able to reinstall. Problem is my computer only has one DVD drive.

Normally when making a copy of a disc I create an iso image with magiciso then burn that iso image to a disc. I'm attempting to do that right now with my windows 7 disc and everything seemed fine creating the iso image until it got to 62%, which is where progress has stayed for the past half hour, at 62%. Seems some people have been having issues with the install stick at 62%, but I'm not trying to install yet, just make an iso image.

So my questions are do you think whatever issue people are having with the windows 7 install at 62% could be causing my problem with the iso image? Secondly how can I get past this?

Any help would be appreciated.

It could be something in your firewall blocking the images. This can sometimes happen when the firewall incorporates an ad-blocking, banner blocking or pop-up blocking feature. If your firewall does have this, try disabling it to see if it helps. If so, try setting it a little less strictly.

I can also see the red light on the drive for about 2 seconds, then it returns to green. I'm new to this and have been reading up on the subject (.iso) at different forums.

I am photographer and have had some trouble uploading my images to client proofing sites this past month. On my desktop (Gateway PC 64 Bit Vista) I do all my normal image editing in CS2 and then do some resizing using BreezeBrowser and all is fine. When I try to upload to my proofing site (BluDomain) some of the images come out as black boxes. I tried working with their tech people to see if something was happening on their end but they said when I just tried to email an image to the rep, it came out as a black box. On my control panel of my proofing site it says it is 0 KB and 32x48 (aprox) size image which is not what is was when I uploaded it. So after removing and then reinstalling my software CS2 and BreezeBrowser software, it still did the same thing. Now if I just do all my image processing and do not up load the proofs onto the site on my desktop but just transfer them to my flash drive and then upload them from my laptop there are no problems what so ever. So something is happening when I upload the images from my desk top. Maybe something is corrupting them? I have run my security software many times but it found nothing (Trend Micro). Please help!

Hello everyone,

So I start with what I want to achieve is to make windows 7 with programs, configurations, custom wallpaper saved to an image file and then backed up on other PC. Sorry for not perfect English .

This is what I do:
Lets say we have two different PC's[PC1 and PC2](hardware totally different)
PC1 After preparing all my windows 7 (installing programs, configuring them, installing updates, activating programs and so on) I make my drive C:\ total image back up to external hard drive.
PC2 I Boot up windows 7 recovery startup and choose restore from image and then I put in external hard drive with usb and make it restored on my other computer. Everything looks fine, it finishes with no errors and then system restarts. When windows are finishing to show "Windows starting" screen, computer restarts instantly.
Then system autimatically suggests me to repair it, so ok then auto repairs are scaning and guess what it can't repair, because it finds some kind of problem with drivers, could be that they are incompatible with my new PC.

The question is how to make this work, how to fix issue that old PC's drivers are being loaded, maybe I am able to turn it off so default drivers are being loaded?
The reason why I want to make this work cause I want to use it for multiple computers.

Simple summary:
PC1 Windows Image backed up to external HDD
PC2 Windows Image restored from external HDD
PC2 Windows can't start because of driver error

Any ideas?

I have 3 image-viewing apps. One is MS Picture Viewer, which I do NOT want to use.
Another is Irfanview, but the one I want to use as a default, *most* of the time, is Firegraphics.

However. Even though Firegraphics is listed in Folder Options/File View as the default, and even though the icons of jpegs and gifs are that of Firegraphic, if I have to use Irfanview on occasion, I cannot go back to using Firegraphics as default. Why? MS
Picture Viewer grabs it all and I cannot find a way to re-set the default back to Firegraphics.

I know that I can "open with" Firegraphics, but it is a royal pain to have to do that, as I usually forget and click on the icon and then get MS.

What are the other ways I can make any image viewer program the default and stay that way, even if I use another on occasion, besides going to Folder Options/File Viewer?

Thank You,

I've created a Windows 7 master image and I use that to deploy 7 to customers PCs.   Now I'm working on creating a Windows 8.1 master image but I'm having trouble.   These are the steps I used to create it:

I used the Microsoft Media Creation tool to create a usb installation thumb drive.   I start installing Windows 8.1 and boot into Audit Mode and update / do my customizations.   I capture the hard drive image to a network location.   Then, I
try copying my install.wim file to the thumb drive.   The thumb drive is using an install.esd.   The thumb drive is FAT32.   If I make it NTFS, because the PC has secure boot setup, it fails to boot off the thumb drive.   Being FAT32, I'm
limited to files under a certain size.   My image file is around 6GB in size so I use dism to split it.    I delete the install.esd file off the thumb drive and replace it with install.swm and I copy install2.swm over as well (to the source
directory).  Everything seems to be working fine until I go to install.

I boot off the thumb drive and make it to the install screen.   I click Install and it asks for a product key instead of pulling it from the BIOS like it did when I was using the install.esd file from the Microsoft Media Creation tool.   I have tried
converting my wim file to an ESD and then using dism to split it but the setup program doesn't seem to like it and complains about missing files.

Any reason why?

A:Trouble with Intermediate Progress bar (Black Border around image)

Put the images from (below) in a zip folder and post it here, I will look at them.

Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Indeterminate > MoveOverlay

Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal > PulseOverlay

Hey, I'm new here. I was told that techguy had the best English speaking computer forum and I'm looking forward to exploring it further.

My problem:
I usually run my backup to an external hd using DriveImageXML. The program creates two files, one file (if I understood correctly) contains a raw binary copy of the hd and an xml file that specifies the paths on the raw copy. But now I've got a problem, my antivirus software got angry and deleted the xml file. Before I noticed it the file had been overwritten and cant be restored with Recuva.

My approach:
I'm looking now for a way to get some of the files from the raw file. I have tried to create a cue file and mount the bin in Daemon Tools but it says that image is too large (47GB), I have tried to mount the raw image with Mount Image but it would not work.

My question:
Is there a way to convert the file to a convenient format (VHD or simular) or mount it? I appreciate any suggestions.
[Will add that I tried to contact DriveImageXML and ask if they have any indexing tool or similar rescue tools, but obviously just got the answer that they do not give support to the free version]

Lessons learned:
1. Just use proprietary formats for backup,
2. Always have your files in at least two places *cry*

Supplement: If it is the wrong forum, please move the thread

Ive owned a dell studio 1558 laptop for almost 2 years now and have recently been experiencing some overheating issues, among my many solutions "new thermal paste, cleaning the inside" and a virus scan using Avast, which discovered a four digit number of corrupted files followed by their deletion and subsequent problems due to now missing some .dll files making me unable to run anything or access the internet. Ive decided I should restore the laptop to its factory settings which I believe I have done before. The problem now is that once I reach the Advance boot menu using F8, I press enter on the "repair your computer" option which is followed by a bar saying windows is loading files, lasting one second, and then windows loads up and nothing changed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks.
