Preferred Solution: screen still bright after adjusting the bars to 0

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.)

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.

I purchased a used Toshiba laptop Qosimo G55-Q801.  It originally had windows vista on it and some one put windows 7 ultimate.  The screen seems too dark.  I haven't found a way to brighten it up.  Could it possible that the right drivers are not installed?  How would I find out and is there a way to correct this.  I have tried all my screen settings and nothing helps.  Second question, it has been loaded with 64 bit.  I have some programs that will not run in 64 bit.  The original COE # for Vista is worn off.  If I install a code finder and find the COE for the Windows 7 and I have a copy of Windows 7 that is 32 bit but no COE # can I install it and use the other COE#?

My LED laptop screen is too bright even at its lowest settings. It strains my eyes when I'm working on my computer at night.

yeah my wifes new laptop has an led screen and adjusting the settings via control panel wont stick ive not had time to figure out why , but if you adjust the brightness via the FN key it works

does your laptop keyboard have a set of "extra" options either on the function or number keys , it will be in smaller print , your looking specifically for the up and down brightness symbol , these functions can be acessed by holding down the function key (FN) then tapping the required key , in your case the brightness

heres an example of what im rambling about , obviously your keys will differ

Hello! I have been having trouble with the brighntess not adjusting on my Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB.I initially tried all the methods suggested on the lenovo support website with no luck.I then went to best buy (which is where i purchased the computer) and was told there was nothing they could do because it was a hardware issue since i had already tried everything on the support site. The gentleman kindly gave me the lenovo customer service number and so i called the next day.The first call went smoothly, the gentleman updated my driver and the brightness worked. Unfortunately that only lasted 2 days so i gave lenovo another call. The second gentleman kindly uninstalled and reinstalled my driver (as stated in the support website, which i had already done) and so the brightness worked.. AGAIN for only 2 days.i proceed to call a third time, but this time the customer service representative, rudely raised her voice at me over the phone. She wanted to access my computer to update my drivers AGAIN and i mentioned i had previously called twice and on both occassions they did the exact same thing with she wanted to do.

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:

Hello everyone!
I have a problem not resolved, more than one month. Then I bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex 755 PC with Windows 7 32 bits and a new monitor Dell E190S. I am pleased that my computer is fast and quiet.

I have the same issue raised by many others, under Windows 7. The image on the screen is terrible, tired eyes and gives you headaches. White is very bright, colors and text are unclear. This happens with all programs and windows open, including Internet browsers.

Dell PC Diagnostics - All tests passed ? Dell PC Diagnostics did not find any issues.
I tried all possible settings: I use Clear Type Text, we increased DPI, and used high contrast themes. I disabled Aero, I calibrated the monitor with different programs. Please help me, if you know any solution.

Thanks in advance,
Mircea Nadasan

A:Windows 7 screen too bright

There is no reason why Windows 7 should cause the problems you describe so it's most likely you just need to set up your monitor to suit your preferences, particularly where brightness is concerned.

Try reducing the screen brightness and/or contrast using the monitor's own adjustment buttons (usually you press a button on the monitor to bring up an on-screen menu, or there may be buttons on the monitor for adjusting brightness & contrast).

If the monitor does need adjusting as described above (and most monitors do), this has nothing to do with Windows settings.

Dear all,  I own a Lenovo T470 and when I started it this morning I could clearly see a white stain/point on the screen.    Please find a picture attached.  I am currently working in the UK on a project at University. Hence, I do not have much time to go back to Germany to visit the retailer where I bought the machine, set up a new system etc... . I have deadlines next week.  The problem happens mostly on the white and light ground. If I turn it into a black screen you can not see it anymore.  How severe is this issue? Could it become even worse? Is there an easy solution (I doubt it)?    I have honestly no idea what could have caused that. Yesterday evening I was working on it and everything was fine.  I would be so glad for any help or comments.  Best

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.

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.

I'm unable to adjust the screen brightness on my Yoga 920.  It's stuck.  The F11 and F12 keys do nothing. I have updated the BIOS.  I have reinstalled the driver.  When I do so, it fixes the problem ... until the next time the laptop goes to sleep or shuts down.  Then, when it comes back on, the brightness is stuck at wherever it was before. If I then reinstall the driver *again*, it fixes the problem ... until the next sleep/shutdown, when the problem reappears. A Lenovo support agent told me the only thing to do is a hard reset on the machine, restoring it to factory condition.  Obviously I'd rather not deal with that hassle if there's a less destructive way to fix the problem. Ideas?  Suggestions?

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.

Ok I was working on warcraft 3, basically the game increases the gamma (due to an internal setting on it) and would normally reduce it again on exit.

After the crash the gamma on my desktop is too high but also cannot be adjusted, some external setting stuck somewhere.

If I go to the nvidia panel and select "adjust desktop colour settings" "other applications control colour settings" is selected, if I choose "use nvidia settings" then my desktop reverts to normal but of course this stops games adjusting the setting.

So my question is can this situation be recovered if so and how? loading the game again and exiting does not recover the setting.

ok for others who have this problem the fix is here.

Hi Guys

I have probem on my own laptop as well. I have had some issue with Trend Micro and uninstall it but apparently some of the files are still hidden inside, I cannot find it so to remove the pest.

How do I know that they are still in my harddrive? I tried to install a new antivirus program but was denied saying I still have the anti virus protection in.

I tried everything to find it to remove it but no luck. So I went ahead and installed AVG Pro....then all was fine for couple of days.

Yesterday, I was browsing when a bright blue screen appeared with white text and said...I cant rem all but was something like a warning, "to avoid further damage......blah blah try unistall summat ......blah if problem contnue contact blah....etc etc

Man, I freaked out so I shut it down immediately...then restarted so to remove the AVG pro...

Now I dont know what to do or whether I have done the right thing...the huge prob is I wont be able to install anti virus!
Please advise
