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.)

Hi,

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,

Andrew.

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

Greetings

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

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:

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

Greetings

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!

Cheers

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...

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

Greetings

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):

[boot loader]
timeout=3
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT

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 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.

Hello Lill, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you currently using the latest Windows 7 64-bit 10.3 ATI drivers?

Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM


It looks like your monitor currently does not support 64-bit drivers at all. It only has 32-bit Vista drivers available for it that most likely could be used in 32-bit Windows 7 as well.

Select your operating system HP w2007v 20 inch LCD Monitor - HP technical support (Turkey - English)


If having the 64-bit ATI drivers installed do not help, then you might consider installing the 32-bit Windows 7 instead and using the 32-bit ATI driver along with the 32-bit Vista monitor driver to see if you can select your native resolution afterwards.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

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:
https://www.brouhaha.com/~eric/software/lcdtest/

The program can be downloaded from the Major Geeks web site here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/lcdtest.html

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.

A:Screen Resolution

Hi charley1.
I assume you mean "1440"X900.?
You can force a smaller size wallpaper to fill the screen by right clicking on your desktop, select properties>Desktop tab. Under "Position" select "Stretch" from the drop down menu.
Unfortunetly, you will end up with a stretched image that does not look real well.
There are plenty of free wallpapers out there available in 1440X900 if you look around.
Another alternative would be to just make your own or take a larger image and crop out a 1440X900 section of it.

Ok, so I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
I have ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics & ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series
I have went to AMD official website and download their cataclyst and I have updated all my display drivers.
I am using a 36" Insignia TV for my Computer Monitor and it's connected
via a VGA cable.
Now AMD VISION Engine Control Center says:
Maximum Reported Resolution: 1920x1080
Maximum Reported Refresh Rate: 75Hz

How come I can only put my Resolution to: 1360x768

Even in the AMD VISION Engine Control Center I change the
Monitor Attributes to Maximum Resolution: 1920x1080 and Maximum Refresh rate: 75Hz
and I still can't get a higher resolution then 1360x768.

How can I fix this?

A:Screen Resolution

Maximum refresh rate of 75Hz does not mean that is where it should be run or set.

Refresh rate has to be set to what the monitor uses.
If intended to use the TV as monitor you will have to find refresh rate for the TV which 99% of the time is 60Hz on TV's and monitors.

My Samsung monitor is one of the 1% which is rare.

My computer is a 5-6 year old dell inspiron 5160, running Windows XP which is becoming more and more unstable with time. About 2 months ago, I had to reboot from the CD, which "repaired' the existing application. In recent days, the screen resolution has been changing by itself at random. Yesterday, it changed to a resolution configuration which has eliminated the "Start menu" and the tool bar completely from view and access. Thus, I can't find a way to access the control panel to reconfigure the screen resolution or to at least transfer my Outlook files (I don't save any other files on the hard drive) to a flash drive or another computer. I need to know how to do one of the above, because I have several extremely important email messages in the Outlook application which I now can't access. (i'm using another computer to post this message).

Not sure where I can post this, so I guess I am gonna post this here.

There has been a recent problem with my screen resolution as it will not let me go beyond 800 x 600 and will give me no other options for the lowest possible color quality (Lowest 4bit)

How do I fix this? I have updated my latest driver, but I dont know how to increase the resolution size.

Plug and Play Monitor on Nvidia GeForce 7300 SE / 7200 GS

If you need more information, please let me know!

Thank you!

Hi can someone please! please! tell me why the image on my screen has a black border around it!!

When I set my screen to the highest resolution 2560 x 1600 it works perfect and will display a full screen image. It also displays a full screen image on the recommend resolution of 1280 x 800. But any other resolution eg. 1920 x 1200 will have a black border around it instead of using the full 30 inches of my screen it will only use about 24 inches.

I have updated my graphics card and monitor with their latest drivers and really have no ideal what else I can do to solve this problem.

I recently had Windows 7 32 bit and have just upgraded to make full use of my 6GB of ram. When using 32 bit I could choose between any of the screen resolutions and they would work perfectly. I have the exact same computer components as before so the only change has been from 32 bit to 64 bit.

Please Help!

Hello,
I have a Compaq EVO D51S SFF which I had plugged to my LCD TV as a media centre, just to watch movies and all. I had not connected this computer to the internet because I did not have a wireless card.
I finally installed a wireless card, and then windows started doing all sorts of updates as expected (since the version on the SFF was SP2).
Once windows was done with the updates, I started having problems with the screen resolution. The SFF does not have a stand alone video card, so I had set the resolution at 1024 x 768, and this worked just fine before the updates.
Now, the resolution keeps changing and this is a problem because the LCD TV gives me a message saying "Resolution Not Supported", so I can't use the computer unless I connect it to a regular computer monitor, select 1024x768, and then connect to the TV. I connect via VGA port, not DVI (don't have DVI).
Any suggestions on how to fix this?

you will need to install up-to-date drivers and make sure you have default monitor (not VGA!) under Monitors in the Device Manager.

I am running Windows XP Pro with existing screen resolution of 1024 x 768 on an Acer Travelmate 270 series laptop. The problem being is that I run a third party accounting programme that will only display on full screen at a resolution of 800 x600 however if I set my properties to that, the rest of the screens, desktop, programmes etc run with larger, fuzzy fonts that are not clear and easy to read. Is there any way of running the main resolution at 1024 x 768 and just the one other programme at 800 x 600 ?.
 

A:Screen Resolution

You may get some benefit from running this one programme in Compatibility mode which makes XP temporarily pretend to be an older OS. If your accounting programme was designed to work under, say, WIndows '98, go to XP's Help & Support section and key in Compatitbility Mode as a search and follow the advice to set that single programme up to work in '98 and 800 x 600.

Hi I have a problem when i start up my computer, if i have my screen resolution at 800x600 and i start my computer it will make the resolution the max )1600x1200) and it will make a black boarder that is like a quarter of the screen all around. Can this be because of a virus that messed something up?
 

A:screen resolution

It sounds like the drivers for your graphics card have become corrupt. Reload them.

Hey, just a short question here..

If I am playing a game and I set the screen resolution higher and it increases refresh rate, will that improve the quality of the graphics? Or what does it really do? I don't really understand all of that.

Thanx
 

A:Screen Resolution

higher refresh rate would help...some. A higher resolution taxes your video card more too. I wouldnt try putting the resolution too high with your video card. Depends on what your max resolution is though.
