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.)

Hello Yousaf,

If you like, you could adjust the DPI scaling in Windows 8 to a larger percentage to make things appear larger without changing the screen resolution.

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

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

hey guys, i too have the same problem...
smb2030 displays in 4:3 in windows7 and there is no resolution in 16:9 even in the "list all modes"
I guess i cant install the proper driver for the intel express chipset in the pc.
Mine is an old comp which had xp prev. and when i installed Intel Chipset drivers, this very same monitor had 16:9 resolutions available (incl 1600x900).
Even in Kubuntu, it showed in 1280x720 (16:9) (i didnt like the font too small)

The sad part is those drivers which i have are only for xp, and the ones on the Intel website dont actually make a difference. i wonder what to do. any suggestions anyone?

Hello and Welcome to Seven forums Jassy1.

Samsung and Microsoft have conflicts. In Device Manager/Monitors what do you show? In the snip you see mine is Sync Master which means I'm using the Samsung monitor driver. Some systems won't allow all resolutions with it however.
Try uninstalling the Samsung driver if that is what you have, reboot and Windows 7 will install Generic PnP monitor which may help.

I'm trying to get my computer screen to fit correctly on my Phillips TV using an HDMI cord that is connected to the HDMI1 port. When I went to the Control Panel to adjust my screen's resolution, I see that there are not screen resolution that correctly fits my computer, even the "reccommended" one. They are either too small or too big, and that's really annoying. I assume my computer's resolution is 1786 x 1024, but that dosen't really show up at all.

I have a T480S laptop connected to a Lenovo USB C docking station with 2 external 4K monitors connected to the docking station, both over displayport connections. The options I have for resolution on the external displays do not match. On one of the displays I am able to set a resolution of 3840x2160, while the other display the max resolution option I have is 1600x900. Both of these displays are the same exact make/model. Any ideas why I don't have the same resolution options on both monitors? Is it a limitation on the video card on my laptop? I've also tried updating to the latest video/display driver on my laptop with no luck.

I have a brand-new ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Generation, a new ThinkPad USB-C dock, and 3 external Dell U3014 displays, which have a maximum resolution of 2560x1600. I want to run all three external displays at full resolution, with the built-in display turned off. Right now, with 2 of the displays connected to the dock's 2 DisplayPort ports, and the third display daisy-chained to one of the first two using a DisplayPort cable, I have all 3 displays connected and working, but only at the following maximum resolutions: display1 at 2560x1600, display2 at 1440x576, display3 at 1440x576. The Lenovo Platform Specifications sheet for my ThinkPad says that the Intel UHD Graphics 620 chip in my laptop supports "three independent displays" with maximum resolution of [email protected] (for a USB Type-C connection) or [email protected] (for an HDMI connection). So, I think that my laptop graphics chip has enough power to drive all three displays at their full 2560x1600 resolution.(see https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20X1%20Carbon%20(6th%20Gen)/ThinkPad_X1_C...). I've downloaded and installed the most recent driver for the Dell U3014 displays. So, I'm guessing that my laptop and display drivers are fine, and my dock is the bottleneck. Can anyone tell me how to get all three external displays running at their full 2560... Read more

I am looking for help, as I have been having some resolution issues with my extended monitors for quite some time.  There are a large number of problems that range from BSODing shortly after re-connecting my docked monitors on a regular basis to having constant annoyances with sizes on screen.  I have tried and searched for hours and attempted every applicable resolution, but I haven't found a correct solution.  While I would love to resolve problems with resolution, the BSODs after re-docking are my primary problem.

Refer to this gallery for images citing the specific resolution issues (apologies for the compressed/poor quality):  http://imgur.com/a/JP1te
BSOD after re-connecting my laptop to either docks (takes about 15-20 minutes and gives multiple error messages)
Very inconsistent font sizes and sizes associated with Windows and file explorer
Applications, both DPI-aware and non-DPI aware, have scaling issues

Things I have tried/notice:

Updated drivers, BIOS, firmware, software, etc.
Ran the various Windows commands to check for errors (sfc /scannow, dism, etc.)
Swapped wires and re-seated connections
Adjusted refresh rate on external monitors to 59 and 60 hz
Adjusted resolution on primary monitor to 1920x1080 to match both external monitors (while this is an undesirable solution, it did help some problems and helped address many of the sizing problems, especially with file explorer)
Used custom scaling instead of standard resol... Read more

Additionally, often if my computer goes from Lock Screen -> monitor off following an idle time, the monitor will not "wake up" or render to a usable state.  I have attempted to wait, push buttons, close the lid, re-connect/disconnect monitors, etc.  The only solution is to perform a hard reboot.

This past week has been a weird one. Both hardware and software has been erratic. Every time it acts up I've noticed I've either been installing software, transferring a lot of files, or even I/O operations through USB. So far it seems like it may have started with some IO Controller. But has since grown to many other areas,because I think, and I may be wrong, that only hardware issues could cause crashes like the ones described below.

I have 5 Drives in total. 3 Main ones and 2 for backup. Listed below with Drive letter, Model, Power on Time (days), and purpose:
C:\ 256GB Samsung 840 Evo (412) - Windows Installation
D:\ 256GB Crucial m4 (1021) - Pagefile, TEMP, and folders that C:\ Symlinks to using Link Shell Extensions.
M:\ 4.0TB HGST Desktar (250) - Media drive. Most user folders symlinked from here.
E:\ 1.0TB Samsung Spinpoint (1446) - Old Media drive. Just finished moving the last files to M so that I could use it for backup, due to the recent issues.
Z:\ 500GB Samsung Spinpont (2614d) WindowsBackup. Can restore from periods:1/30/2013-5/30/2013 and 10/17/2013-8/27/2014.

Some of the things I've found odd leading up to these events are:
1.) Some folders open up really really slowly sometimes for no reason.
2.) Sometimes when I open "My Computer" drive M: will suddenly appear, a second later it will show as full, and then windows seemingly checks the free space and I watch the actual freespace slowly accumulate.

A:Laptop resolution too high

Go to a blank place on your desktop, right click on it, go to Properties.

Click on the Settings tab and adjust the resolution to 800x600. That should bring down the resolution and make the icons bigger.

If you need things to be bigger, go to Start -> Control Panel -> Assessibility Options -> Configure Windows for Vision and other needs.

Go through the wizard to adjust Windows to your liking.

So I just bought a new laptop which has a resolution of 1900 by 1080. However, thanks to the high definition, everything on screen looks so damn small!

I've tried searching for a slightly lower resolution option, but the next lowest option that retains the 16 by 9 aspect ratio is 1280 by 720, which makes everything so HUGE.

So I was wondering, is there anyway for me to increase the size of EVERYTHING (not just fonts, for example the buttons at the top of firefox are damn small, as is the address bar and stuff like that)? Preferably while maintaining my native resolution?

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, I want to buy a new monitor, but I don't know which one.
The things I want:
-A high resolution, the maximum for my graphics card is 2560x1600. I want to utilize it as much as possible.
-the screen doesn't need to be too big, but not too small. I want a good size for sitting around 80-100 cm from my monitor.
-It doesn't need to have a lot of functions like USB and MicroSD slots.
-Paying more than 500 euro for a monitor is the max.
-I would like it if it has the same ratio as an A4 paper because that is more pleasant for your eyes instead a total rectangular display. This isn't 100% necessary.
I hope someone can help me with choosing a new monitor.

That is uncropped. Everything is cut off. She tried going under Personalization and changing the resolution that way, but then it just got bigger. She's got a monitor that's around 40-inches, a TV screen.
Anyone have a fix for this? It's really frustrating for her. I have her on Skype right now if you have any questions.

A:Windows 8.1 upgrade - high resolution issue

I'd recommend checking to see if there is a video driver update.

Hey TechSpot,

I accidentally set my video resolution to something my monitor can't handle, and have no way of setting it back. I've tried it on three different monitors - two gave me 'signal unreadable' messages, the third just gave static - and I tried navigating through the menus using a different system as reference, but to no avail. Any help?

A:Resolution too high makes monitor unusable.

Have you tried the Safe Mode boot and then fixing the drivers?

Just came back from a group vacation and all of us want to share digital pics online.

Problem: I want to be able to copy/download the original, high resolution photos for free (Snapfish makes you pay $ to do this). I am aware of SkyDrive and sharing folders, but I'm concerned some of the people won't understand how to do this, even with instructions (and I'd also like to have a caption with the picture)

I went to Picasa and Photobucket, but neither appears to let you download a hi-res picture (for free) that you can print yourself.

Thanks in advance.

A:share high resolution photos FREE

it was at the right size for a couple of days then it went to larger displayed web pages and I moved the resolution back and forth but can not get to display smaller display the bars on the top remain the proper size I am using vista home. At first I thought I was nuts but went to my other computer With IE7 and it is smaller displayed webpages
