Is AD site resolution dependent on DNS resolution?

Q: Is AD site resolution dependent on DNS resolution?

I had an IP address show up in an SA today and, though the IP falls within a defined AD subnet and site, the site did not appear in the UI.
Perhaps only coincidentally, the reverse DNS lookup for the IP did not resolve either.

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

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

A:monitor resolution issue - can I change my resolution from outside windows??

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)

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.

i have a samsung monitor that have 2 slots, specifically for DVI & VGA
and i also have a GPU embeded: inno3d GT430 that also have 2 slots for VGA and DVI

i got this new DVI cable from a friend so i tried to upgrade my display from VGA to DVI

the problem is i cant see any differences between the two

things ive checked so far:
nvidia settings ressolution tab: converted it to 1920 x 1080, 1080p
windows resolution settings: 1920 x 1080 (Recommended)

so again, there are no differences between the two when i hooked them up, can anybody tell me any steps to make my display HD?

core i3
OS installed: win7 32bit

A:HD Resolution & Analog Resolution: they display the same output

Is it running at 1920 x 1080 ?

Why do you think you would see a difference ? VGA is analog and DVI is digital, that`s it, as far as I know.

Personally, I think Samsung monitors are terrible.

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?


A:How to change the monitor resolution to a custom resolution

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.

Hey, recently i got a brand new GTX 1050 ti, and i knew it wouldn't have a VGA connector, so i purchased HDMI to VGA. I just installed the graphics card and installed its drivers everything. drivers seem to be working fine but max resolution is 1024x768, i even restarted the PC and tried reinstalling the graphics driver multiple times. But i'm still thinking it might be because of the HDMI to VGA adapter's fault

I recently had the dreaded Facebook virus on my laptop - symptoms included redirecting to weird sites after google searches. I believe that has mostly been sorted out now. The sorting out process involved a number of scans using malwarebytes, SpybotS&D and Ad-Aware as well as reseting the router.

After resetting the router I have managed to get my laptop to connect to the network. Passwords are correct and signal strength is very good to excellent. However, I can now only access my online work email account, all other websites (google etc) won't open. I get the following when I try to open them:

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...

Hi again,

I have on a form in Access 2003, two combo boxes. One combo box is dependent on the other. What I would like to do is have a value appear in a text box which is dependent on the value selected in the dependent combo box. To acheive the independent / dependent combo box functionality I have used as an inspiration the excellent example found at http://www.blueclaw-db.com/download/dependent_combo_box.htm (see download link 2/3 down the page and thanks to Blue Claw Database Design)

Given this example - how would be able to go about having a text box which would show the selected student's telephone number? I would lock this text box after the update of the student being selected in the combo box so that it can't be edited...

As always, I would really appreciate any ideas or even solutions!


A:Access - Text box value dependent on an already dependent combo box

Rusty, create an "Unbound Text Box" to hold the Telephone Number.
Ensure that the data columns for the second Combo include the telephone number.
In the second Combo box's "After Update" event procedure add some simple VBA like

me.textboxname = me.comboboxname.column(1)

where textboxname is the name of your unbound text box, comboboxname is the name of your Combo box and assumes that the telephone number is the second column of the Combo Box (in VBA they start as column 0).

Ok, around late november or so i recieved my ATI Radeon 7000 graphics card(AGP). I installed it to the motherboard and everything, and everything worked fine(actually it worked the same). I realized a week or two back that i had been plugging my monitor into the onboard video port, so i then replugged it into the radeon 7000(whihc, btw has a duelmonitor capability). When i did this a window poped up that said my resolution should be changed, so i had it do it automatically. The picture and size was improved EXTREMELY slightly. Now, what id like to do is make my resolution higher(its currently 800x600), but if i put it at anything at all above the 800x600 res, and click apply, my screen turns into a blaze of colors, and nothing moves or changes, not even the mouse. I cant read or see anything. I press tab twice and then enter and it undoes the change. Now, im wondering, why cant i put a higher resolution? In case, its a 15" monitor, no idea what brand, and i updated the drivers.

I've recently installed Windows 8 on my computer with succes. The only thing that's not working right is the resolution. My computer is connected with an HDMI cable to my Panasonic TX-L32C10P TV. The graphic card i'm using is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 610.

It was a lot smoother with no slow downs as be for but the shimmering and objects looking smooth then jaggy. Any way I tried lowering my resolution on the monitor in game to 1600x900. The shimmering stopped which it didn't be for on my old TV. I now can have all graphics on ultra at 144hz on every game I tried with out problem.

Also the screen when at 1600x900 looks to fit better then at 1080p. I no for a fact that this monitor is 1080p so why are things better at lower resolution but look better then 1080p?.


If you changed out your GPU, motherboard, Power supply and TV, and it still didn't correct it...

That leads me to believe that you either have a damaged or poor quality monitor cable. At high resolution rates the information being sent over the cable is a fairly high frequency. Lower resolutions use lower frequencies. A damaged or poorly made cable isn't going to pass the high frequencies well. That might be why the problem goes away at lower resolution.

I would try swapping out the monitor cable and see what that does at better resolutions.

I still don't understand this dilemma. I'm working on a 22 inch monitor that has a native resolution of 1920*1080 but there are lots of elements in the Windows 7 x64 UI that is too small even for my vision which is 100% good. I also notice this tiny text phenomenon on programs like Photoshop & InDesign especially in the Preferences dialog box where the list of options in InDesign (General, Interface, UI scaling,...etc) are way too small for me to read to the point that I need the magnifier app just to read well! I thought it's a Windows 7 issue so I had to live with that but I've never seen any change in that aspect on Windows 8 and Windows 10 which I've tried only for the hope of finding a real solution to this problem but they both disappointed me so I'm back to Windows 7.

All the solutions I've read on the internet are talking about raising the DPI to 125% or even 150% but raising the DPI to e.g. 125% makes my screen's real estate even smaller thus I'm not taking full advantage of my screen/resolution so I'm really stuck between two hateful situations. Will we never have the ability to work with default 100% DPI and at the same time, those tiny text elements are taken care of to look bigger and more sharp? What's the difficulty for the programmers in having that become true?!

After about 15 minutes of frustration, I used an LED flashlight to look inside the top RAM slot. I was looking to make sure it wasn't defective, and that there were no obstructions. Upon closer inspection, I realized the slot should work fine. But alas! Each attempt to insert the RAM into the slot resulted in a half-in failure! So then I got an idea. I took a really (I mean REALLY) small screwdriver and pulled up on either end of the RAM slot. I made sure to avoid all of the pins on the slot as I did this, to prevent damage. Next, after a little wrestling and pushing it in on one side first and then the other, it finally went in.
Diagnostics: The RAM slot had "Shrunk" or become tight without use.
Resolution: Carefully pull up on the ram slot with something small that won't touch the pins.
Conclusion: I now have 8GB of RAM working great in my laptop. I am sure this would work on other computers as well if you are careful!


For our notes, what is the specific laptop model? Were you installing Dell memory or 3rd party memory?

I just got this
The middle one currently 799 with the options unchanged.
I added another hard drive, from my pc that just died, and 8 more gigs of ram.  Day one I wasn't able to get a picture.  I was using the rgb adapter and thought maybe that might be the problem.  I ordered an hdmi cable and was able to get something and enter bios but the screen was glitchy and weird.  Open the machine up again tried to make sure everything was in and not loose.  Computer managed to start but very glitchy screen flickering on and off and colors changing.  Once windows started (i hate everything about windows 8 so far and want it to die btw) I tried to change the resolution and brought it down to 1024/768 and then it looks kind of normal now.  This resolution seems to work.  But there is still some occasional glitchyness lines or dots.  But I want to use 1920/1080.  I don't know whats wrong.  I kind of don't want to believe that its a hardware limitation.  Am I missing a driver? It seems to be installed and I tried installing something but that didn't seem to work.  Is this because I'm using an hdmi cable?  I just got done trying to fix my last computer and ultimately giving up, then got this an having nothing but problem again.  Very frustrating any help would be appreciated.

A:Low resolution on new pc

Hi, The first thing I would do get a hold of Dell for support and let them make sure you are connected properly and that there is no hardware problems. You should not have to load anything to use the computer. It comes preloaded with Windows and all drivers installed.
The next step is to follow our tutorial  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/start-menu-in-windows-8-with-classic-shell/

Windows 8 no longer includes the traditional Start Menu that Windows users have become associated with using. Instead they replaced it with a new interface called the Windows Start Screen that many people find to be not as intuitive as the traditional Start Menu. This is especially the case if you are not using a touch screen. With this in mind, a free program called Classic Shell has been updated to support the ability to add a Start Menu to Windows 8.

I installed it on the computer I'm typing this on and the Windows 8 on this computer now works more like Windows 7 as far as the interface.
It works pretty good.
Good Luck
