Q: Screen Resolution Not offered

I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but I can't the screen resolution of 800x600 to choose.

Only 1024x768 is displayed which is greyed out and I can't select any other resolution. However, I have updated the monitor drivers and I am using 800x600 resolution in windows 7.

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.)

Why would you want to use a lower resolution?

I have Samsung 26" LCD TV with a PC input and a optimal resolution of 1360x768, however when I connect my PC to screen the XP does not offer that resolution, only resolutions lower and higher. Is there any way to force the screen resolution to be that resolution?

I tried connecting a different PC to the screen and it worked fine, automatic select the correct resolution. I would therefore assume it is possibly a driver issue. The PC in question has the following graphics chip:

Intel 945GSE 128MB Integrated Graphics

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Kind regards,


A:Optimal screen resolution not offered

It's not necessarily the driver's fault, it could just be the card does not support that resolution. Also check the available resolutions and see if any of them are widescreen -- 1360x768 is a widescreen resolution, but 1024x768 is a standard (4:3) resolution, which may produce undesired stretching. An integrated graphics card might not support widescreen (16:9).

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

Is there a program that will allow you to print any screen that comes up. eg error messages.

A:{Advice Offered} - print screen


Yes, it's called Windows.

In all Windows OS's, you have that ability. When an error message pops up, hit the ALT and Print Screen buttons on you Keyboard. This will put the contents of the screen into the clipboard.

You can then open up your favourite graphics program (I love Irfan View, but you can use M$ Paint as well) and paste the image into the program, and save it in whatever format you want (PNG is the best format, followed by GIF and then 16 colour BMP).

I hope this helps

How can I disable the Print Screen function on NT 4.0?

A:{Advice Offered} - Disabling Print Screen on Win NT 4.0


Um... I've had a look, and there does not seem to be an easy "registry Hack" way of doing this. So the next best thing, is to install a Keyboard Key remapper software, and make the Print Screen button dead, or point to a different key.

I've had a look on Winfiles.Com website in their Windows NT Mouse and Keyboard Utilities section. The best one I can find is D-system's Remapper. I do not know if it will do what you want, but from the graphic below (which comes from their website) it looks like it might:

I recently installed Win2k Pro over an install of WinME (clean install) and now whenever I start the computer in Win2k the screen goes black after the initial start-up screen and stays that way. Help please! thx

A:{Advice Offered} - Black Screen on start up in Win2k?!


It is possible that it is attempting to load a WinME driver for one of your hardware devices.

The easiest way to fix this, is to do a format and re-install Win2K. It is ALWAYS best to do a fresh install of an Operating System, and not an upgrade.

If you do not want to do this you can try use the recovery Console to delete the Enum key from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet. Then, the next time Win2K boots up. it will redetect all the devices and you might have to supply driver disks for any hardware without drivers on the Win2K CD. Make sure you provide Win2K drivers only!

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...

My laptop was working fine last night, then this morning it will not boot up.

I get the following message:

STOP: c0000135 {Unable to Locate DLL}
The dynamic link library winsrv could not be found in the specified path Default Load Path.
Beginning dump of physical memory.
Physical memory dump complete, contact your system administrator or technical support group.

I have tried to reboot several times and get the same message. I have a Compaq Amanda 7800, Windows NT 4.0 build 1381, service pack 4, and 128 MB of memory.

I don't have a Windows NT set up disk, or a boot disk.


A:{Advice Offered} - Blue Screen on boot up (Missing or corrupt DLL file)


Ok... I probably do not have good news for you.

Are your NT system files on a FAT partition? If so, then you can boot of a DOS6.11 boot disk (The one I have set up is available here) and expand the file off your NT CD and write it to your HD, as it is likely to be corrupt.

If the partition is formatted with NTFS, you have a much more harder task. You have the following options:

a) Format the HD and re-install NT. If you have important data that you need to save off the HD, then you can use NTFSdos from Sysinternals.com (which is supplied on my boot disk) to read the NTFS drive and extract the data.

b) Buy a Read/WRITE version of NTFSdos and use it to expand the DLL off your CD and write it to the HD as per the FAT16 instructions (PS. If you decide on this choice, I would LOVE to have a copy of the Read/WRITE version of NTFSdos, or better yet ERD {Emergency Repair Disk} Commander)

c) Install a second copy of Winnt into a different directory on the same HD. Then expand the DLL off your CD and write it to the HD in the old NT directory. You will probably have to edit your boot.ini file to include the old NT version.

Let's assume the boot.ini file looked like this (I have used my Win2K boot.ini file, which only has ONE line for the NT OS to start. In NT4 there are 2 lines; keep both lines intact):

I just bought an HP Pavillion dv6-7014nr and I love it! Except for one thing. I upgraded to the 1920x1080 screen to get the HD quality and the matte display. Everything on this screen is so tiny, its uncomfortable to read. I have increased the text size in windows to 130% dpi and I have downloaded and extension in Firefox to keep the zoom level I like. My problem is that with this increased DPI setting, the text in programs, such as iTunes gets cut off or overlaps. I was just wondering if there was a solution to this problem, or is it just something I have to live with?
Thanks very much!


A:[SOLVED] 1920x1080 screen resolution on a 15.6" Laptop Screen

1920x1080 doesn't suit everyone on a 15.6" screen as it's really more suited to large-screen external monitors (20" or more). It's big plus of course is that it gives you much more screen space to use for multi-tasking or using apps which have many palettes (like Photoshop). Personally I think 1920x1080 is way too high for the average laptop screen size unless you've got perfect eyesight.

If you don't need all that space, you may find that setting a lower resolution (and changing DPI & zoom levels back to their defaults) is more in line with what your eyesight can deal with. It probably won't look as pin-sharp as the native 1920x1080 resolution though, but at least you shouldn't get some app Windows extending beyond the screen edges.

Hi guys,

When I set my resolution to any other res other than the highest possible i get a black outline around my screen due to the resolution not stretching to fit my entire screen.

I see you have a Geforce 220, I have the 210, the model down from you and have exactly the same issue.

Resolutions are usually only limited by the monitor type detected, and that is to protect the monitor from damage.

If the wrong monitor type is detected, that could cause the change.

If you mention what monitor type and model you have it would be possible to verify that its OK at the higher resolution.

I saw this happen once on a customer's PC. He somehow managed to change one of his desktop shortcuts for Mozilla Thunderbird email.

The shortcut properties' compatibility tab was checked off for 256 colors @ 640x480 resolution. Every time he started Thunderbird, his resolution would change and then not change back once he got out of the program.

Maybe start with Skype. You have to right-click on the desktop program shortcut, select 'properties' and look at the compatibility tab for it, and then maybe for each program that starts automatically when Windows starts. I hope that's what it is and you find the culprit

A:Screen Resolution

It could be a poor connection, 2 of the pins in the VGA style cable are used to 'tell' the PC the resolutions etc the monitor can handle. If they don't connect properly this could cause your problem.

With all power off try removing and reconnecting the VGA connector several times at both ends, this should clean the pins and may improve connectivity.

If that doesn't help I would try a new cable.

EDIT : check all the pins are straight before doing the above !

A:screen resolution

Welcome to TSF....

The resolution you see is a combination between the monitor and the video card, if the monitor will not handle resolution above 1024x768 then you are up the creek. I would check the specs on the monitor on the web site for the manufacturer of the monitor and if the nvidia only has 64 Mb memory then it probably will not handle much above that either. I would try a video card with atleast 128 Mb or more.

This is a strange issue that no one has been able to address.

I am running Windows XP w/ Svc Pack 2.
I am using the integrated Video controller - NVIDIA GeForce2
The display is a HP Pavillion mx75.

About 90% of the time whenever I close Mozilla 1.7, my screen goes black for a couple of seconds and then comes back but the display is now set to 800 X 600. I then can go back into the Display properties and reset to whatever setting I prefer and it the system will run fine until the next occurrence.
This will sometimes happen when I open Mozilla, but it usually only happens when the browser is being closed.
I don't recall this happening when I close any other application (i.e. IE, etc.) but I'm not 100% sure either.

One workaround that does seem to work is using ctrl + alt + del and then hitting "end task" on the Mozilla application.

FYI - I use AVG Anti-virus and have run Adaware and Spybot. The problem has been ongoing for a couple of months and I have lived with it until now, but I would like to resolve this if possible.

Any suggestions?

Hi all,

I have a Radeon 8500 series video card and a 19' flat panel monitor.

I'm looking to get to 1600 x 1200 screen resolution, but
that is not available in the 'Display' settings.

My question is: what is stopping this from happening?

My upstairs (old) computer has a geForce2 and an old 19' CRT monitor. I am able to set this to 1600 x 1200.

So, IF it is a monitor issue, will swapping monitors allow 1600 x 1200?

Is it a video card thing? If so, is it a hardware thing, or can I download something that will allow me to run in 1600 x 1200.

Thanks in advance for the help,

A:Screen Resolution Help

Hi, and welcome to TSF. usually the limiting factor in resolution is the monitor. Is the monitor detected correctly in the device manager? And is the monitor capable of that resolution? Also check to make sure the horizontal and vertical scan frequencies are within what the monitor can do. LCD's often aren't capable of as high a freq's as the CRT's, but they're getting better as the technology improves.

I'm suspecting you're at 1280 X 1024. That's all my 17" MAG will do. May be all your 19" whatever will do also.

Right-click on a clear portion of the Windows desktop (that is, not on an icon or button) and choose Properties on the pop-up. On the Settings tab there is a slider to set the resolution. If the resolution you need isn't available, press the Advanced button, choose Adapter and press the List all Modes button. If the resolution you want is there, choose it and it should then appear as an option on the slider.

If you can't find the resolution you need, let us know and we'll help you further.

Is it possible to utilize a screen resolution unsupported by my monitor? I realize this may be a stupid question, but the highest resolution supported by my monitor is 1024 x 768, and I need something higher than that... So it's either find a way around this, or buy another monitor, which I'd like to avoid, as my monitor is relatively new.

Thanks in advance for any help.

how would I test my screen resolution?

A:Screen resolution

There are various free utilities that generate test patterns. One such program is called LCD Test, by Eric Smith. Some of the patterns can also be used on CRT monitors. To check your monitor's horizontal resolution, you use a pattern of alternating, 1 pixel wide, black and white vertical lines. To check your monitor's vertical resolution, you use a pattern of alternating, 1 pixel wide, black and horizontal white lines. The patterns are drawn based on the current settings of your video controller. If you have an LCD monitor, the controller should be set to match the native resolution of the LCD panel in the monitor.

A description of the program and the keyboard commands can be found here:

The program can be downloaded from the Major Geeks web site here:

The executable file runs the program directly, and does not need to be installed. It will probably trigger security warnings as being an unsigned program. If you are not comfortable with that, you will need to find another free or paid for program that passes Windows security.

At my mom's computer. A friend of hers went and downloaded that stupid "billion hours free" via AOL (no offense to any AOL users). Well it seemed to mess up the screen resolution and now I can't get it to go past 640x480 and it's on 4bit! I can't seem to download any new drivers plus the screen is really hard to read...any advice out there before I have to pay AOL a visit with my trusty bat?

Have you uninstalled the AOHell software? That company has a history of not completely testing their software with all configurations, hence having so much bad rep from all over. If it's an XP or ME machine, you could also try to do a system restore to an earlier time.

More than likely though, the vid drivers have been messed up, so see if it will allow you to do a 'rollback' of them. Yuo can find that option in the vid card properties under the driver tab.

Why can't I change my screen resolution? I recentely reformatted my WindowsXP and I can't seem to change my SR anymore. It says this message "Input not supported." Any reasons? I can't stand 800x600

A:Screen Resolution

Welcome.. If you recently formatted then more than likely your video card is lacking the proper driver and Windows is using it's generic driver.. Go to Control panel/ system/ device manager and look for any yellow exclamation points. Check that the proper driver for your video card is installed.. Good luck.
