Olevia LCD Monitor Fixed 640 x 480 resolution. HELP!

Q: Olevia LCD Monitor Fixed 640 x 480 resolution. HELP!

Hey forum gurus,

I have an Olevia 226 Monitor plugged into my computer. For some reason the resolution is 640x480 (it is supposed to support 1366 x 768) and I cannot get it to change resolution, I have tried basic display properties under the setting tab (I am running XP Home SP 2) and the tab which changes the resolution will not even pan at all. The screen resolution sucks and I cannot change it even though my graphics card Intel 82915G Express Chip is capable of 1024x768, i even changed monitors and it was fine, I was able to choose 1024 x 768, then I connected the olevia back to the computer WALA, 1024x768 no problem. It still wound't let me change the resolution at all (tab wouldn't budge) but the resolution was fine. I decided I would restart the computer and see if it would stick, NOPE, back to 640x480 and it will not change unless I use an iterim monitor to get graphics card to accept 1024x768 then switch back to the olevia. ANY help would be great.

THanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Olevia LCD Monitor Fixed 640 x 480 resolution. HELP!

I had the same problem. Here's what fixed mine.
Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advanced

Make sure you choose these settings or your monitor will totally blank out. If it does, don't hit any key or click the mouse...wait about 10-15 seconds and the monitor will revert back to the other settings.

Monitor Tab
Uncheck "Hide Modes"
Select 60 Hertz refresh rate from the drop down box
Apply (Don't hit OK or it will close the active window out)
Adapter Tab
List All Modes
Select 1360 x 768 (32 bit)
Apply
OK & the "Advanced" window will close

If it doesn't automatically apply the new setting then you should now be able to slide the screen resolution bar 1360 x 768 & select 32 bit color quality from the display properties window that is still open. This should fix any conflicting setting issues.

This should (hopefully) fix your problem.

I may be mistaken, but I believe the original issue lies in the refresh rate that your graphics driver can handle. If I try to increase my refresh rate at all it messes it up again. But, I'm not a "techie" or anything so I may be way off base as to why it wasn't working to begin with.

I really hopes this works for you.

My brother bought an ATI HD 7870 to replace his HD 6870.
He has two monitors: a Medion MD 30422 PV and a VD Tech TQL2318VD.001.
The two displays worked properly under the HD 6870 and under the HD 7870 when the ATI drivers were NOT installed.

Whenever we install the ATI HD 7800 Series (version 9.10.8.0 drivers, the Medion screen gets stuck at VGA resolution (640x480).
Installing Medion drivers does not help and removing the ATI drivers fixes the screen resolution.
So now I'm wondering if there's any way that I can have both the ATI drivers installed and be able to change the resolution on the Medion screen.

Any help is appreciated, thank you.

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

does the Nvidia card have any software which could manage screen resolutions? If so you can try that in safe mode....

Also, tap F8 on startup, but instead of safe mode chose "enable VGA mode" which should cause windows to boot normally, but in 800x600 (or something of the like, that just about all monitors and TV's support)

Hi all,

So I'm creating a program for a friend but we are having trouble trying to display things in a 1280 x 1024 resolution.

Is there any way to create a custom resolution on my laptop or monitor of 1280 x 1024? Our monitors don't have this resolution listed in the display settings, or is this a driver issue?

Cheers,

The resolution availability can be affected due to the graphics card installed. I will have a think about any other factors which may affect the resolution.

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.

Hi all! Does anyone know if an LG Flatron Wide L226WTQ-BFQ monitor can be fixed? All it displays all of a sudden is a white screen. No activity whatsoever. Just a plain white screen.

I tried to open it, but I can't figure out a way to open it without breaking anything. I tried to contact LG support, to see if there is a way to fix it. No reply at all from them.

I am not looking forward to spending $150-200 on a new monitor, especially since I've had this one for only a couple of years. And I don't really know any techs who I can trust (the last local one I contacted tried to charge me hour and a half of labor to install a new PSU, a ten minute job).

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!
 

A:Can LG monitor be fixed?

Forgive me here, but I would have done everything here in reverse! Instead of trying to open up the monitor to check things out, I would have first contacted the company and seen if they could have done something for you. Little do people who don't work the industry know, that sometimes company's put special "tell" screws on their products when putting them together. These screws are designed in a way that a company can look at them and know if the customer who has returned the item for possible warranty work, has open the item up or not, which if the screws tell them that you have, it "voids" the warranty and therefore no work is done. Also if you heard any type of lite snapping or slight crunching sounds when try to open it to take a look, that was warranty tape inside the monitor, also designed to tell the company if someone opened up the product.

Personally, when buying a monitor for my computer, I always in the back of my mind tell myself that I'm buying a perishable item! I tell myself that most of these things aren't designed nor built to last forever. For most LCD monitors I've purchased only last for an approx time period of 3 years, some 2, some 3, but for the most part 3 years seems to be the median age. Heck, I'm awaiting the arrival, via UPS, a monitor I sent in to the company for service work, for it to went down. It's age at the time I mailed it off to the manufacturer was 3.5 years old.

I had two monitors, one at 1600 x 900, and my ASUS at 1920 x 1080. I connected a third 1080p monitor, which works fine. However, my computer no longer received a signal from my ASUS monitor.

I updated my NVIDIA drivers and the ASUS monitor was detected again, but as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", and only gives me the resolution options of 1024 x 768 and 800 x 600. I have tried updating all of the monitors drivers, swapping cables, and swapping ports on my Graphics Card. None of these have resolved the issue, and when I unplug and replug the ASUS monitor it is no longer detected again and I have to restart my computer - where it is again detected, but as a generic monitor in 1024 x 768.

I have also tried using a custom resolution in the NVIDIA control panel to force it to run 1920 x 1080, but this did not work either.

I've had this 19" Sony Trinitron monitor (model 1962B) for awile now sitting in storage from not being able to figure out how to get it working on any of my machines. It's time to try again since my other 19" multisync died last weekend.
My first difficulty lies in the 13W3 cable that connects from the back of the monitor (female) to the videocard on the machine (female). On the end of the cable that plugs into the monitor are 3 switches labeled 1, 2, & 3. And there is a position labeled 'On' for them. I cannot find any documentation on this cable and what these On switches mean and in what position they should be in for the monitor to work.
It's possible that it is just the position of these switches that is keeping my monitor from working, but if not then my other problem lies in the actual setup of the card. Here are the specs of what I have:
Win98, PIII 988MHz machine
Mirage Illusionist 3D/Pro AGP graphics card

I'm very computer literate, so don't know why I've been having so much difficulty with this. But every time I've tried to start up the machine with the monitor plugged in, I get the screen doing a nasty rapid vertical scrolling effect.

I guess I'll end it here and if anyone needs more info to be able to help out (or has info on the 13W3 cable) just post a reply to my plea for help.
Thanks

I gave my parents a basic pc for Christmas, including the Nec Multisync 3D Monitor I've had for years.

In early December, the picture - which had always been sharp and color-accurate - became a little fuzzy and slightly greenish.

Yesterday, they called. For 2 days, the monitor remained black for 10-20 minutes, and then suddenly, not gradually, sprang to life. (By life, I mean the slightly fuzzy picture.)

But yesterday, after 30+ minutes - nothing. Screed still black.

I'd like to make a fix vs replace decision. They just got internet access last week, and all this is new to them - I want them to learn how much fun surfing can be.

Recently built a desktop that uses a HD6870 card; a friend donated an old Aquos tv/monitor. Highest resolution available seems to be very low, 1366 x 768 - looks like a laptop resolution? Using the VGA adaptor connection btw.

Also got a PS3 hooked up; currently I use the component cables since the HDMI on that old tv/monitor is apparently from an older version of the standard (I get a "signal not compatible" message if I use the PS3's HDMI output).

As I suspect it's the hardware that's obsolete, I plan to get a new display. I'm interested in the following monitor: Samsung T23A350 23-Inch Class LED HDTV/Monitor - mainly because it says it's also tv/monitor, and I saw both HDMI and Full HD logos on the shop's display unit. I assume this means that display should be able to accommodate higher resolutions as well as allow my PS3 to be connected via HDMI rather than component cables.

Just wondering if anyone else has any experience with this particular model. Also wondering whether my resolution options are limited because of the driver, or maybe because I'm using the VGA connector instead of the HDMI one.

A:Monitor resolution, opinions on new monitor/tv

Sorry took me so long to update this, but the store I wanted to get it from hadn't any stock until last week. Price went down too so that was a sweet two birds with one stone for me. Btw using a VGA connector shouldn't matter, it can carry the high resolutions as well as I found out with my new tv/monitor.

Anyway, I'm as pleased as punch with my new unit. Crisp, HDMI, switches easily between the PC input and PS3 on the HDMI at the touch of the source button. The only two minor complaints I have is (1) it's pretty much entirely reliant on the remote control, so expect to have to replace the 2x AAA batteries someday, and (2) the stand is fixed, so the display unit can't swivel or tilt. Perhaps not a big deal, but as I have it mounted slightly above eye level it can get tiring to have to keep looking up at it all the time. Small price though, I've been working with laptops and crappy old monitors for so long the higher resolution it supports blows me away.

This tv/monitor combo gets a definite recommendation from me.

Edit:
Oops, forgot to mention, my problem with the old display was that it was basically a TV - sure, it took PC input, but it was designed as a TV so it only supported laptop resolution max (not to mention, now that I compare them, text was faintly blurry as well). No such issue with the TA350, it was designed with monitor input in mind so you get the lovely high resolutions your graphics card can output.

Hi,

Here is an unusual problem with a Dell Latitude D510 laptop and a new AOC F22 monitor: When the two are connected, the highest available monitor resolution in XP SP3 is 1440 x 900. However, when running Ubuntu or Granular Linux on the same machine the full 1920 x 1080 monitor resolution works fine. Upgrading to Win7 didn't help, nor did updating the video driver through Microsoft's online update service.

I've installed the latest Dell drivers and the AOC driver in XP, but to no avail. The Dell drivers have a program for changing monitor resolution, which lists the highest supported monitor resolution as 1920 x 1080, but doesn't give an option to select that setting. The graphics chipset is by Intel, but their generic driver won't install on this laptop, saying it needs a custom driver from the laptop manufacturer.

Oddly enough, when I connect the laptop to a friend's Gateway 1680 pixel monitor XP jumps up to that resolution. And when he plugs his laptop running Win7 into the AOC monitor it goes to full 1920 resolution.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially how to tell XP to shift to higher resolution.

Thanks.

My monitor is pretty old, and that's probably the reason for this, but I just want to check.

My video crd is an ATI AIW 9200 or something....acouple years old is all.

The most I can put my resup to is 1024X768. If I go higher the actual picture on my monitor is bigger than the screen, and I have to "scroll" up,down,left or right to see all of the screen, but I cannot see the whole thing all at once. Is the reason for this my weak-a$$ monitor?

Thanks!

Your monitor has a limit of 1024x768 resolution

Hello,

Just got a new 22" Monitor.
Apparently it is capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution.

If I select that resolution in the Control panel, all the Folder icons and everything else becomes quite small.

If I go down to 1600 x 900, everything looks just fine.

Any way of using the higher resolution, and not have everything look so small ?

Bob, right click any where on a blank area of the desktop, hover the mouse on VIEW and change the setting for what size you want the icons to be.

hi well im getting a upgraded ram(memory) from crucial.com and i need my resolution to be higher would that make the resolution be higher?
or do i need to get a bigger monitor i have i think a 15 inch and i was just wondering if updating something in my computer would just make the resolution better or if i should purchase a bigger monitor?

thank you

Unfortunately ram will not change the resolution.

The video card sets the resolution, so you may want to upgrade that. But monitors also have a limit. So if you had a brand new video card, depending on how powerful it is, your monitor may not be able to display all the resolution options that the card offers.

Hi, I just reinstalled Windows XP pro after a system wipe and can no longer get the resolution right on my monitor. I have an 18" Acer X183H, and everything is stretched too wide. This includes videos on media player. None of the resolution settings match what it was before the wipe. Can anyone help?

I can sure help.

Can I ask, why did you know how to wipe the system, but not enough to back up drivers?

Bought a new LCD monitor for my old XP computer. After installing it, I find that this monitor is recommended to operate with 1600 x 900 resolution. When I attempted to change my resolution by going to the Control Panel, I find that the highest my adjustment will go is 1024 x 768. The monitor manufacturer (AOC) tells me I need to "update my video card drivers". That's pretty much Greek to me and I don't speak Greek. Can someone assist me with this situation......Thanks

When I am online with SBCYahooDial and with a troubleshooting trial with Earthlink, the images (photos) are grainy and not sharp. Images @ www.cnn.com are also grainy and blurry. Install installing a newer version SBCYahoo disc showed that it required 800x600 resolution. I cannot reset the resolution on my CRT and also on a 15" LCD flat panel display. Can I achieve 800x600 with a new video card?

Running Windows 10 Pro on a Dell. I got a larger monitor than what I originally had, now a 21.5 HP Compaq LA2206x. When I first turned it on, my desktop was high and to the right. Right clicked, saw my display settings, and the box with resolution figure was greyed out so I could not change it. Went into control panel and found device manager then clicked on display adapter and went to drivers. I removed the driver and re-booted. When the desktop came up I right clicked for display settings again. This time I could change resolution so I changed to one that now fit the screen. Rebooted and everything was fine now.

Now I was just letting it sit there without doing anything, when all of a sudden I heard a short sound like music and the screen reverted back to where the desktop was up and to the right again. Checked again and could not change resolution until I went through the whole previous process. Once again after a few minutes it changed back by itself. Is there some way that Windows 10 is doing an automatic update that changes my resolution?

After installing a new sound card in my system (a 5 year old NEC running Win98SE) I reboot only to find my monitors resolution is stuck on 16 colors and screen area 640x480. When I go to Properties-settings, I no longer even have the 32 bit colors option and the screen size only goes up to 1024x768. Even then if I try to adjust the settings (and then restart so they take effect) I still have the low resolution--no change. Any thoughts on what I need to do?? This won't cut it like it is now!!

How do you fix the display on a flat screen monitor when Internet Explorer will not cover the width of the screen? The monitor is set at the highest resolution. This narrow view happened on my husband's monitor and we have no idea how to resolve the issue. He is using Vista Home Premium and is using an analog flat screen monitor. He said he hit some key one day and it happened and he has no idea what he did. Changing the resolution does not solve the issue.

Thank you for any suggestions you may have.

I have had this hp 2711x monitor for a few years now, and the resolution setting has been perfect. Then a few weeks ago the resolution changed to 1024x769 by itself and is listed as generic non-pnp monitor. I tried to change it back to the usual resolution but I cant change it back. I have tried to force set it using nvidias tool but to no avail. I plugged my tv into it and it was fine so i plugged my monitor back into the computer and then it went back to the right resolution but when i turned the computer off the resolution went back to 1024x768 and I cant figure this out at all. I have a evga 560ti card and I have tried downloading other drivers too. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I am using the same Monitor I was when using my old XP laptop. It always went to the right resolution each time with it. I have tried to find new drivers for it but have been unsuccessful. here is my problem. When I plug in and start up in the morning it always comes up on the monitor long and narrow with a black band at top and bottom like the first pic(startup screen). If I turn monitor off and close laptop screen it will often come up like startup screen 2, the second pic. It looks right but is all over onthe left side of the monitor with the right quarter of the monitor black. I want it full width and height right off the bat. Sometimes I have to turn off monitor and open and close laptop a couple of times before it will be right. Any advice?

thanks

For the video card this may or may not work,

ATI Radeon

if it doesn't see what Dell has for your laptop (use your service tag number to look it up).

For the monitor is it being detected properly or is it showing as "generic PNP monitor"? If it is showing as "generic PNP monitor" check Windows Update and see if it offers a driver for the monitor. The one from Viewsonic,

Viewsonic ? Q22wb 20" LCD Monitor

may or may not work seeing as they have discontinued that model.

Also is the resolution of those screen shots what the monitor is running at, or did you resize them?

Hi,

I have a new Acer x183h 18' monitor and for some reason the resolution seems to be off. Pictures are stretched and Videos on the media player are clear, but grainy. Something just looks off. I know it can look better, because I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro due to a virus, and it looked great before that. Any help?

Hi - I'm having problems changing my monitor resolution so I'm hoping someone might have a fix.

I recently had to reload windows 95 due to a registry file being corrupted. Anyway, I ended-up reloading all of my hardware including an AOC Spectrum 5Vlr monitor and a STB Velocity 128 video card.

I'm running well, but when I try to change my screen resolution to anything but 600X480(?) my screen gets all jumbled. Prior to having to reload win 95, I got all kinds of different screen resolution options that worked fine. Any advice on how to correct this issue?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Monitor Resolution

You may be able to fix this with a simple video card driver. Go to the manufactuers website and download the correct one. Also, try using a different monitor. If it works at different resoloutions, then your monitor is the problem

Hello, This started yesterday. What happens is, every time I boot into Vista the resolution is different than it should be. It is 1600 x 1200 instead of 1680 x 1050. So then I have to change it back to normal. This isn't too bad of a problem it is just kind of annoying .

Does anyone know how to help?

I had been using 1280x1024 screen resolution and now i switched to 1280x968 for a game im running and i need help setting stuff like zoom level, size, and position for my monitor to make it the exact amounts it should be if thats possible so that pictures aren't stretched a little taller than wider and so forth. I know how to change all those settings but i dont know what they should be at to fit the screen perfect for that resolution. I have an HP pavilion mx70 17" display multimedia monitor and i couldn't seem to find any tutorials on the amounts to set size and position and all that at if your using 1280x968. Im sure most people just do it farely close by the way it looks but i'd like to get it perfect for that screen size if thats possible. Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Monitor Resolution

Its the combination of graphics card and monitor that creates the screen view.

You will just have to either resize using your graphics card, some will allow you to save settings for particular games ( I don't know any games that suggest a resolution of 1280x968, mostly they go 640x480; 800x600; 1024x768; 1280x1024; 1600x1200)

A program such as powerstrip will give you greater control options, however unless you are a Virgo, let a little imperfection in!

Manually change the settings using your monitor on screen display controls and save the setting.
