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

I purchased an HP 6735b laptop, designed for Windows Vista, without a hard drive. I purchased a hard drive and installed Windows 7 Professional. I did all of the important and critical updates from the Microsoft website and updated all drivers using Slim Drivers. Somewhere along the line the screen brightness dimmed and wouldn't allow me to adjust it.

Through the device manager, I found the display adapter, which is ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. Went to ATI website for updated driver and found the latest for 3200, which I installed. It appeared to work, I was able to adjust the brightness back up.
However, when I shut the laptop off and start it again the screen is dimmed. The hot keys (FN + F10) will not work, but when I type in "adjust screen brightness" and go to the screen that allows you slide the bar up and down to adjust the brightness it suddenly pops into the pre-adjusted brightness setting.

I've tried to go to the AMD website and download their program that makes sure the drivers are updated, but after the program loads, you click on the button to search, I receive an message that says "Sorry, something went wrong".

Why won't it hold the setting after shutting down?

I am trying to adjust the brightness (lower it) on my Dell monitor. The problem is that after pressing the brightness/contrast button on the monitor it seems that I am then required to make the adjustment useing a Dell keyboard with its - and + keys. I didn't like the black keyboard when I first got it and gave it away to continue using my old IBM white keyboard. Is there now another way to adjust the brightness on my monitor other than searching for another Dell keyboard? The automatic brightness is just too bright for me and is killing my eyes at night.

You need to right click somewhere on the Windows desktop then click Properties, then Settings. Use the slider to adjust the screen resolution to be the same as the recommended resolution for your monitor. If it won't let you increase the resolution, let us know what graphics adapter you have (manufacturer and model).

I just received this monitor as a gift. It has no manual. Never used a LCD monitor before and not sure if what I see is what I must accept as normal.

Issue One: The reds are more of an orange. I tried to adjust the color on the on-screen monitor adjustment buttons but did not have any luck in getting the reds to show red. I may not be using the montor on-screen buttons and settings appropriately.

Issue Two: The right and left side of the screen look slightly faded out to yellowish. Is this normal and can it be corrected?

Issue Three: Is there an on-line manual for this product? I have not been able to find one. Or, this there a manual of some kind that will tell me how to use the on-screen buttons to adjust color and do whatever the buttons are supposed to do?

Issue Four: I downloaded a driver file with an .inf extension. Where do I put this .inf file?

Thank you in advance for any replies.

After pressing the auto adjustment button the image repositioned downwards so much so that the windows task bar is half hidden. Repressing the auto adjustment button and trying to reposition vertucally through the menu button did not do a thing.

AMD AthlonXP 3200+ (New install, upgrade) 400MHz FSB
Gigabyte MB
512 MB pc2700
NEW Radeon 9700 PRO 128MB 256-bit


First off I am in the process of updating and upgrading my PC. I have installed a Hitachi 160 Gig HD (still running off of 80 Gig), two new case fans, AMD AthlonXP 3200+, Thermaltake Extreme Volcano 12 fan with all copper heat sink rated for up to AMD 3400+ and using the thermal paste which was included with fan/heatsink and finally a new ATI Radeon 9700 Pro with 128 MB DDR....and that is where my problem starts.

I replaced my Sapphire 9000 Pro 128 MB which played all the games I own. I recently purchased MoH Pacific Assault, which also played well on old card as well as Sims2, Call of Duty:Unified Offensive, all no problems. After I installed with my new card I am seeing triangular boxes flicker wildly all over with no texture to them, just a sky'ish color, cant see anything beyond them. Definitely cant play any of my games under these conditions. Also, when I close the game my wallpaper will have horizontal, static-like lines from top to bottom of my screen which affects my icons as well.

I went to the official ATI site and downloaded the most recent drivers with no change. Then downloaded the latest Catalyst Drivers, no help. I even reinstalled DirectX 9.0c. I tried multiple setting changes and I am still having problems with my Video.

Is there a certain setting that I am not trying?...or worse yet, did I get a crappy video card... Read more

Finest Ranger,

Check out this game benchmark as they use a range of cards - you can get some sense of what performance you'll get using various graphics settings in your graphics card control panel.

See this this forum / thread as there is a discussion on changing in game parameters :

Possibly bookmark this site :


These people periodically release tweaked drivers for ATi and nVidia cards (check the site links also.)
As regards what will give you the optimum experience with this game - you will have to just tweak the game features such as draw distance, sky, blood textures, sound, bullet holes etc ... until you get the right balance between realism and gameplay.

Good luck.

having problems adjusting my ibm c72 monitor. everything ok except pincushion & trapezoid... nothing hapens at all. at the moment any woman would be proud of the shape my monitor displays. any ideas, anyone or am i about to buy the huge flattie that i've always wanted but couldn't (and still can't) afford? many thanks

A:monitor adjustment

Yup, probably not good. Problem tends to indicate the magnetic fields have changed around the neck of the CRT, usually having to do with the deflection yoke. Probable cause is maybe some shorted windings in some coils or could be some bad connections somewhere.

Trying giving it a couple good slaps and see if there is any effect.

Other thing is to try adjusting the scan rate of the video card.

Just for chuckles try degaussing it. Maybe try on another computer system. If the size adjustments normally won't correct it, for all intents and purposes it is close to buying the farm.

For wild experimentation, you can try positioning refrigerator magnets along the sides. If any placement seems to dramatic improve the situation, just duck tape them in place. Only do this when all hope is lost.

The auto-adjustment on an LCD monitor auto "maps" the converted analog pixels to the digital pixels as best it can, there should be a monitor button control/menu to invoke it.

So, here's the scenario:

I was a Windows XP Pro user for years (since it came out, basically). I got to know the ins and outs of XP very well indeed, and I rarely would need to refer to a forum such as this. However, I've recently upgraded to Vista, and there are a few sharp contrasts to XP.

Now, I'm a musician. As such, I use a program called Guitar Pro 5 to arrange music. Guitar Pro uses something called RSE (Real Sound Engine) to produce realistic sounding playback of your basic rock instruments (guitar, bass, drums). However, the rest of the instruments it plays back are played through MIDI (which wasn't ever a problem... it didn't sound as good, but it was there, at least). RSE runs through WAV. Everything else (piano, strings, etc.) is run through MIDI.

Now, here's my problem: WAV is loud. MIDI is quiet. On XP, I was able to adjust the SW Synth and WAV volumes individually in order to achieve the balance I desired. However, on Vista, the volume mixer, as you well know, has changed drastically.

My question is simple: How can I balance these two volumes once again? I'm willing to do anything, no matter how complex, because it's incredibly difficult to write music when you can't hear all the instruments!

Note: For those of you familiar with the software, I realize that Guitar Pro allows you to play in completely MIDI format for all instruments, which is what I'm doing now. However, I would like to get the full function out of the program. After all, I didn't... Read more

How can I fix the Notepad function on Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit so that you get an automatic carriage return when you reach the right hand end of the page? This new version doesn't seem to have any, and just carries on writing right off towards the right into infinity. This makes copy harder to read as you have to keep scrolling along to the right as you're reading and if you have to edit what you've written you just end up with a mess. If you make the carriage return yourself it still doesn't work out right and you end up with twice as much editing. The old XP version of Notepad automatically made a carriage return at the right end of the page and was simple and straightforward to use.

Welcome to the sevenforums! Spoons896

Are you using onboard or an addon card? It sounds like the Windows sound mixer is all the way up. If you set WMP as the default player the volume control on that will effect the play back of wav files assigned to Windows functions.

The software for onboard or a card installed generally has a sound mixer as well if that went on good. Another place is clicking on the "sound" link in the Control Panel and highlighting the "what'u hear" item in order to click the properties button. On the next screen that comes up open the "levels" tab for a slide adjuster there.

I am trying to get my ATI ALL-IN-WONDER PRO to work on the following configuration:

Gigbyte 845 Motherboard with an Intel Chipset, 2.4 Ghz Intel CPU, 1gb Ram, 80GB HD running WXP Pro OS.

When I load the ATI Catalyst Software I find myself in an endless reboot cycle.

I have tried everything on the ATI web site and have talked to the ATI tech support who have replced my card three times and still no solution. Does anyone have an ALL-IN-WONDER PRO working on their system? If so what configuration?

Any thought for me on how to make it work?

A:Ati All-in-wonder 9700 Pro

This may be a compatibility issue, have you been to Gigabyte's website to check on this? You should also go to their downloads section and check for newer chipset drivers or BIOS releases(if they apply).

Also did you have another video card in the system prior to this one? if so make sure all the drivers for that card are removed before trying to install this new one.

Also how many watts is your powersupply?

Ps. how can i find out if the card is running at 4x or 8x? i know my AGP slot supports 8x, but the card seemed a LITTLE slow to me, so may be i though for some reason it is running at 4x.


A:ATI 9700 Pro Help!

First you can set the AGP by going into Bios.

Second have a look in device manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks next to your sound hardware. If there are then reinstall the drivers for your soundcard.

Hello, I was wondering if I should adjust my pagefile size. I have a computer thats less then a year old that runs windows vista (I have no vista problems).
I have 288 GB of memory, 230 GB free (I will probably never have less then 150 GB free) and 3069 MB RAM, and use a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS video card. The automatic pagefile size was like 3300 MB, but I think my computer might be able to do better. The recommended pagefile size is 4602 MB. I play alot of games like CS:S and EVE, so reducing lag as much as possible is always a concern of mine, which is why I use cable internet with LAN (I used to use wireless through a router).

Anyways, another site told me to multiply my recomended pagefile size by 2.5 to be my max. So I just set my "Initial pagefile" to 4602 MB and "Maximum pagefile" to 11505 MB. My question is, should I push for more/less? Should I just use automatic?

A:Page File Adjustment

With 3GB of ram,you should not need a large page file and should not
see alot of page file usage.
1500MB high and low limit should be fine and run smoothly.
