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.)

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

Hi ,
Since upgrading to Windows 8 my monitor screen resolution has altered and I can't get it back using the usual method.

My monitor manufacturer recommends a setting of 1440x900 at 60HZ

Of the options offered by windows the nearest is
1152x864 at 64HZ although it recommends 1024x768 at 64HZ
It seems to recognise my monitor (LG L194WT)

I just upgraded my Dell 4300 XP Home Edition to SP2. When it rebooted, the welcome screen was in blue and white instead of its usual color rich format and the background resolution was really poor quality.

A window popped up and informed me that my settings were set too low and asked whether I wanted Windows to auto correct the problem. I clicked "yes", but nothing was resolved.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Sizing is only part of the issue - the rest is compatibility.  You can't just drop in a screen by size - notebooks are coded in BIOS to work with the screens they ship from the factory with.
You may want to look up the specifications of your system (support.dell.com; use the service tag) - or call Dell Spare Parts -- or  contact a third-party Dell reseller like parts-people.com.  You can upgrade but will need to find out what you have in the system now in order to decide on the parts you'll need.

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 ?

It appears to be an option, but you should realize that a display change will void your warranty and could require the purchase of parts other than just the panel (new wiring harness, or if it's a touchscreen, the entire top half of the system).

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 have a Sceptre 32-Inch LCD TV (X322BV) and I use an ASUS GeForce 440 video card. I am connected to the TV using a top of the line HDMI cable that has ethernet built in. I was using this cable to connect my computer to the TV and it displayed fine at 1360x768. This was great for my games and all other programs I was using. I attempted to install a new game called Metro 2033 and when I launched the game, it must have detected that my system is really good and set to display the resolution in 1080p. Now my TV does not support this display and now won't show anything except in safe mode, where the resolution is set to 1024x768. I am just not sure of how to get the computer to now NOT display in 1080p when I boot up windows normally. I have tried using the F8 menu to reset the resolution and everything. I am a competent computer tech who has much knowledge. However, I am just not sure how to change a resolution when you can't even see the screen and you can't see the screen because you can't change the resolution. It's a catch-22. I will never understand engineers or programmers in the least. PLEASE HELP! I have even hooked it up to a 1080p TV and turned the resolution down but when I hook it back up to the 720p TV the settings are still set at 1080p for some reason. It's like whatever display it's connected to, that's what settings it's going to use automatically. I am just out of options except for a re-format. PLEASE HELP!

A:Resolution stuck at 1080p; Resolution changed by game

Before I re-install the OS I would try this:
Boot up in Safe Mode and log in with an Admin account.
Uninstall the Device and Driver for the Video Card (see link below).
Re-boot in Normal mode, and Windows should detect and re-install the device.
Go from there to update the driver as needed.
Uninstall Device and Device Driver - Vista Forums

If that one game is the problem, I'd uninstall it or search for answers how to configure it to not cause the problem.

I also suggest learning System Backup Imaging, so going forward you can easily recover from problems without re-installing the OS and all programs.

Ok - First off Im using a 32" Dynex TV as a monitor, hooked in through a VGA port on the TV. When I start my computer the screen jumps around and it says 'detecting signal', settles on 640x480 during boot When windows 7 starts to open it jumps again for a moment and goes to 1366x768 (the right setting for it) I was playing Metro 2033 and its too slow in 1366 so I reduced it to 1024x768 which apparently the TV cant do, it just went black, so it reset to 1366. I was trying various resolutions, some were too wide too skinny etc and accidentally clicked on 1024 again, screen went black and this time didnt revert. I restarted my computer and now after the 640 phase in boot it doesnt go to 1366 like it should but at the opening to windows 7 where you put in your password it switches to 1024, after it jumps to adjust a few times it goes black like in the game.. it tells me detecting signal (normal) then no signal detected (which is what it tells me if I have it on say component 1 with my xbox 360 turned off, or video 1 with my dvd player off, or even VGA with the computer off for that matter)

What Ive tried:
I tried turning the monitor off and on to see if I could adjust the settings back while it was adjusting before going black, but it just stays black...

I started up in safe mode, which was 800x600 and it was ugly but worked, I tried resetting the resolution but it only gave the base options (640, 800, 1024, 1280) and that was only for safe mode, it didnt hold when I ... Read more

Native Resolution for my monitor is 1366 x 768. It's a 32 inch computer monitor. The reason for buying bigger screen for the computer is so that I can have more desktop display area so that I don't have to scroll horizontally to have a clear helicopter view of my subject.

Only then I was made to understand that I am actually restricted by the monitor resolution and hence though my graphic card can support higher resolution, it won't work. So my problem right now is setting the graphic card with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 is giving me blurry images and text. The desktop display area is wide enough to satisfy my need but the blurring object is not acceptable.

My general question would be:
If the graphic card higher resolution doesn't help because it does not match the monitor, is there any smart software that can give me more desktop area with clarity given that resolution constraint? What other alternatives do I have without getting rid of my new monitor?

A:Graphic Card Resolution > Monitor Resolution

What graphics card do you have? Sounds like it is not powerful enough to fill the resolution you are looking for.

You want this download link: http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/video/Intel_845GE_6_13_1_3510.zip

That is your video card driver, which you need to have installed in order to do any sort of resolution adjustments. Windows is really bad at finding drivers by itself, you usually have to go online to your computer manufacturer's website to find the drivers.

Hi there,

I know there have been a lot of posts regarding this issue but I have yet to find a solution for my problem.

I upgraded from Windows Vista 32bit to Windows 7 64bit ( I checked the system previously and it said it was 64 bit compatible). Previous to the upgrade, my resolution was 1200 x 800. Since the upgrade, the screen resolution is maxed out at 1024 x 768. I presumed this was a graphics card driver issue. I went into Device Manager and saw my graphics card was called "Standard VGA adapter" instead of the Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 series.

I tired updating the driver for the VGA adapter and it told me everything was up to date. I then went to Nvidia website and downloaded the latest drivers. (Here's where the fun started!) I downloaded the latest version for Windows 7 64bit, tried to install but it keeps telling me that it is a Vista driver and therefore cannot install. I tried running it in Compatibly mode, same thing again. It also tells me I'm running a 32bit version of Nvidia installer even though I downloaded Win 7 x64 version!?

I then downloaded the latest Windows 7 drivers for my version of the Sony Vaio, that failed to install.

I cannot find a windows 7 driver anywhere that will work! I've tried every possible driver / update for the laptop and graphics card but to no avail! I updated all the Windows updates, no difference either.

I know Nvidia should have an auto detect option that works like a driver detection app, this should allocate you the correct driver for your card. Don't install yet. Now download & install Auslogics defragger & run a slower but more intense defrag on your machine. Restart your machine & install both the graphic driver & PhysX..

Once done you should have only the downloaded driver in device manager under your display.
Let me know..

With Win98SE I was able to work at a resolution of 1920 x1440, 70Hz with the aid of a third party application called Powerstrip.
Since upgrading to XP, I am not able to do this. Is there away around this?
 

A:Loss of resolution with XP upgrade

Maybe you need to download and install the latest upgrade driver from your video display card vendor's website. Or check with the vendor for Powerstrip.

I have an IBM Thinkpad 755C. I would like to upgrade my monitor resolution (16 bit),
is that possible on this machine. I am running Win95, will Win 98 upgrade help at all?
 

A:Upgrade Monitor Resolution

the OS upgrade ain't worth it just to bump your monitor to 16-bit, it won't do a thing. Check your system control panel and see what driver its using for your monitor

You may also wanna check out IBM's site, you'll get to the right page eventually, would provide URL, but it won't hyperlink correctly. I'm not sure if the rigth file's there, but there's next to no harm in keeping your drivers updated (so many ppl neglect this point)

And in acse anyone's wondering why i edited this post 5 times, its 'cause of the URL code, pain in the (fill-in-the-blank-here)

------------------
Just remember, i could be wrong.

Hi All you experts, I am new to the forum, I have just been given an X1 Carbon Gen 1 - very happy I would like to upgrade the unit to allow for a higher res then the 1600 x 900, i was using an elitebook that gave me a ridiculous res of 2560 x 1440, the only thing i prefer on the HP... Any suggustions? thanks

A:X1 Carbon Gen 1 resolution upgrade

Hi marcods1908,
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
I don't think so it is possible as X1 Carbon 1st Gen was never released with FHD resolution or higher, the highest it can go is 1600x900 which is currently equipped with your system. 
I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

I just upgraded to WinXP and can no longer get my monitor set to 2048 x 1536 - which was my resolution in Win2K prevoiously.

The most I can do now is 1920 x 1440 - and that is only 16 bit color.

I have a 21" Sony Trinitron G500 monitor and an Nvidia Riva TNT2 (pro?) vid card. I have the newest driver installed. I've also made sure that my display settings recognize my monitor and that the right one is selected.

performance has been a little slow since the upgrade, but it's only a 700 MHz Athlon in there. I did find performance to increase significantly when I dropped hardware acceleration a notch (under: Display properties - settings - advanced - troubleshoot)

Anyone have any ideas? It seems that XP should be getting all the drivers right, but I don't know what else could be going on. Could XP require more VRAM to do the same job?

Many thanks for any help.
 

A:maximum resolution dropped with XP upgrade

How high do you have your Refresh rate?, according to sony, that monitor will run at Up to 2,048 x 1,536 resolution at 75 Hz...

And as far as driver, you downloaded it from www.nvidia.com correct?

Background: Built a different system with new M/B, CPU, and case (Win7). Transferred GeForce 7300 video card over and put in new PCi-e bus....NO video, even with embedded video disabled and bios set for it....the only video I can get is using embedded ATI Radeon 4200.

However, I have loaded and reloaded drivers for the Radeon and for the monitor (Samsung T220). Device manager shows monitor and display adapter to be correct. But when I try to set display resolution in control panel, the monitor native display resolution of 1650 X 1080 is not available, and the monitor just shows "VGA". Closest I can get is 1600 X 1200. So, I am stuck having to use only the embedded video and a resolution that my monitor doesn't exactly like.......ANY HELP APPRECIATED! I am not a gamer, but use this for a lot of Photoshop CS5 work.


p.s. I have an Radeon 5670 on order....will this even work?
 

A:Help with monitor resolution/setup after upgrade?

Hi, I always get the same problem with my onboard graphics card on windows 7, I personally install the right drivers and it works, but sometimes it fails so i use the closest like what you have there and i apply i don't click ok, so that if it doesn't work, it will bring me back to that screen in 15secs.
However now that you are going to get the new Radeon 5670, that will solve the equation.
If u still want to use you old card, then you have to get new versions of the drivers or you may have to install them manually.
Hope that helps

Heya folks, my friend has a bit of a problem with her recent upgrade to Windows 8.1. Ever since upgrading, her screen has looked like this:
 

 
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.
 
Thanks!

Interesting problem here... decided to do my first upgrade to Win 10 on my HTPC, running Win 8.1 (Home x64). During the upgrade process, the computer rebooted, and when it came back my monitor is saying "Not Support".

I'm theorizing that the problem is happening because the monitor is a 4K 30 Hz screen. If it's identifying it as a 4K monitor but kicking it up to 60 Hz, it will fail.

I did create bootable media but Startup Repair doesn't find anything. I also tried using the command prompt to use BCDEdit to set the bootmanager to display the boot menu ("bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes") but I'm guessing that's editing the boot configuration on my bootable USB stick and not the OS drive... either that or it's just not doing anything.

I've tried F8, Shift-F8, F12, and holding down Shift to try and get a boot menu, but I just get the Windows logo, the circle spinning under it for a second, and then I lose it. I suppose it's possible that I'm not far enough into the install process to get a boot menu maybe? I dunno. Can't see. :(

At this point I can wipe it and reinstall 8.1, but I'm wondering if there's any hope of dumbing down the resolution on this thing if even temporarily. Your thoughts?

You can try another monitor and/or T.V.

Im not too sure if this is the right place to write this. but my laptop went flat, and then i charged it, and it was on the lowest screen resolution possible. i tried 2 change it, but its still horrible, theres no way to put it back to the original resolution. i tried updating drivers and stuff, and some of the stuff u guys write isnt good for ppl hu dont understand computers haha.

please help, it hurts my eyes!

A:Screen Resolution, Help!

Which laptop are you using?
For a laptop you need to use the native display of the screen. This is because the display is made up of liguid crystals and if the setting is wrong the display may look blurred.
Try 1024 x 768.

Hey, my screen resolutions never seem to stay like they were. I had a 1440 * 900 selected which diappeared from the resolution list, so when I opned my PC this morning, my resolution was changed to something else than 1440 * 900 AND . . this resolution isn't supported anymore.

Another screen resolutions that are possible and have right dimensions, are 1680 * 1050 which is a bit too small for my eyes and 1280 * 768, which is a bit too big for my eyes. The 1440 * 900 is just about the right size, but this option seems to want to disappear every now and then. Any ideas?

Thank you!

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.

My computer is a 5-6 year old dell inspiron 5160, running Windows XP which is becoming more and more unstable with time. About 2 months ago, I had to reboot from the CD, which "repaired' the existing application. In recent days, the screen resolution has been changing by itself at random. Yesterday, it changed to a resolution configuration which has eliminated the "Start menu" and the tool bar completely from view and access. Thus, I can't find a way to access the control panel to reconfigure the screen resolution or to at least transfer my Outlook files (I don't save any other files on the hard drive) to a flash drive or another computer. I need to know how to do one of the above, because I have several extremely important email messages in the Outlook application which I now can't access. (i'm using another computer to post this message).
