Impermanent Screen Resolution

Q: Impermanent Screen Resolution

Acer Aspire 2000 (Cl32) runs WinXP/Pro/Sp3 and can be set to display in its native resolution of 1280 x 800 from its ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 video card. However, when it reboots, it reverts to 640 x 480, and often blames an absent or corrupt video driver. My remedy is to UNinstall the video driver from Device Manager and reboot, but I'd like to have native resolution without going through this 'readjustment' at every reboot. On the rare occasions that I can access the ATI Control Panel, Schemes in the Display tab, is empty. If I select 'Default Single Display' from the offered options, the SAVE button is greyed out. Any suggestions as to how I can get the native resolution to 'stick' ?

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Uninstall driver via the 'Add/Remove Programs'. Run Ccleaner and clean the temp files plus registry. Download a fresh copy of the latest drivers, install.

They are controlled by the video drivers. If settings keep changing/disappearing, that would indicate Windows is corrupted or there is an actual hardware fault.

Hi I'm new here and this is my first post I looked around a Forcing Resolution Resolution Screen Native Than Higher 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 quot zones quot 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 Forcing Screen Resolution Higher Than Native Resolution 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 Forcing Screen Resolution Higher Than Native Resolution would give an advantage to anyone playing on a higher resolution as they would be able to see their enemies and fire before the enemy even knew they were there My native resolution for a quot LCD TV is x This is fine Forcing Screen Resolution Higher Than Native Resolution except when playing continuum So I tried changing my resolution to the max which is x Well the screen expanded and cut off parts of my screen everything got blurry and had a blue tint to it I figured this is probably not good for my TVs functionality as I have burnt out old monitors in the past by running too high of a resolution So I went to my NVIDIA Display Properties and started messing around I realized that changing to a higher resolution x from here still caused me to lose part of the screen but the blue tint wasn't there It's still vaguely blurry but not enough to really notice So I went to the resizing tab and resized my screen to fit at the higher resolution I ended up with resolution of x at HTz refresh I resized my icons and text and the screen is perfect now But it is much higher than the native resolution of my monitor So my question is will keeping it at this resolution cause my TV to quot burn out quot or have any otherwise adverse effects System Specs that might be important Display Geforce GTX ti connected through HDMI to quot LCD TV TV Panel Resolution - x Display Resolution Scan Rates - HDMI Suggested Resolutions p i p p i I don't know what the p and i stuff is I tried reading about it but it's so uninteresting and makes entirely no sense to me I just want to know if I'm ruining my monitor by using Geforce to make my own custom resolution Thanks

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

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 fullscreen after going gets into resolution "stuck" resolution different Screen a 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 x normally This seems to hold true for almost all my games Even the windows screensaver causes the same problem Screen resolution gets "stuck" after going fullscreen into a different resolution if Screen resolution gets "stuck" after going fullscreen into a different resolution 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 GeForce MX 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 nbsp

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,

I'm new to the forum, just joined actually, and I had a quick question. 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. This is fairly recent, as it never used to happen. I'm figuring it might be a driver problem, but I'm not sure. Any help would be great.

A:When lowering screen resolution, screen does not stretch to fit

Hi SevenUltimate welcome to the forums

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

Firstly, yes it's a driver issue. I have had to roll back to 258 edition to get it working properly again.

Take a look at my post about it here: Make Full screen actually look full screen maybe the suggestions will work for you, although they didn't for me.

Failing that, I'm willing to upload the 258 edition drivers to my Skydrive if you want? (mods/admins: please let me know if this is against the rules, don't think it is, but you never know)

A:Screen resolution etc..

1). Yes the XP home edition would work fine on a repair install (assuming you are repairing a XP home edition computer, it won't repair a 98 install or XP pro). Just make sure you have your original cd-key just in case

2). Once you fix your video card problem, the resolution will fix itself. Look in your device manager (control panel > system > device manager) and look for either: a yellow exclamation mark next to a device, or a device that is listed under "Display adapter". If you find either of those post back and let us know.

3). You can more than likely transfer the video card from the older computer to the newer one, assuming you have a 3rd party card, and its not built into the motherboard. But honestly, coming from a computer that old, the video card isn't going to be worth a dang, in fact that whole computer is probably worth very little. (no offense, it just sounds like a very old computer)

One quick follow up question: When you installed the 1GB harddrive did you uninstall the other harddrive? or did you install the 1GB as a slave?

Bit of a long story really, but I think it needs to be said...

My old Samsung SyncMaster 710v 17" TFT stopped working so I got Samsung to replace it with a new one. The new one is exactly the same model, size and everything. My problem is the screen resolution. My old screen was at 1280 x 1024, the new screen won't allow me to go up that far. I used my father's 15" TFT whilst the new one was being delivered, and that only goes up to 1024 x 768 which is normal for a 15" (probably). Now I use the new 17" (exactly the same as the old one - which could go up to 1280 x 1024) and it only goes up to 1024 x 768. Like it has retained the settings for the 15".

My problem is I want 1280 x 1024 not 1024 x 768! So is there anyway I can change the maximum resolution settings in the display panel?

Thank-you in advance.

A:Screen resolution not the same!

You probably just need to install the monitor's driver, so that the make and model of the 17" is shown, also tick the hide modes box.

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.

I cannot get good resolution. With XP, once set at the highest setting, the icons got smaller and everything was sharper.
That will not happen with W.7. The device manager says it is fine. It doesn't find a better driver. Windows says everything is set optimally. But icons are too big, at 100% and things are slightly out of focus.

Hi

Not sure about the software installation but you should be able to change the screen resolution of your monitor from the control panel. You should have a section there labelled "monitor" or the name of your graphic card.
Mine says "Control panel for NVIDIA" along with the graphic card icon but yours may be different.

Open this option and there should be a page on which you can change your screen resolution.
Mine is a slider but it could equally be a selection list. eg

800 x 600
960 x 600
1024 x 768
1162 x 864
1280 x 768
1280 x 800
1280 x 960
1280 x 1024
1360 x 768
1440 x 900
1680 x 1050

Pick the one you want and retry the software.

Best of luck

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.

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.

Im new and not really sure which forum to post this but I am new to Windows 7. I used an upgrade disc i bought last night to upgrade from windows vista. Im not great with computers so please dumb it down for me if possible...

I have an HP laptop (pavilion dv4) and i use an external monitor with my laptop. When i use my laptop screen the resolution works perfectly, but when I plug my HP external monitor in it screws the resolution up by stretching the screen and making text fuzzy on the monitor and on the laptop it makes the screen smaller with black lines at the right and left.

anyones help and input would be awesome!

Thanks

i have i lg 42" hdtv and i have just bought a packard bell computer which uses windows 7, i plugged a rgb cable in and an audio cable they both worked fine the screen fit perfect, until i plugged a hd cable in, my resolution is 1920 x 1080 (recommended), however this does not fit my tv it is to big, although when i try to go 1680 x 1050 which is the one below it simply is to small. so i have no idea what to do ????

A:screen resolution

I've always had much better luck using HDMI cables for large TVs. I know for my 42" Vizio, once I set the resolution, I had to also adjust the positioning and size in the TV's settings.

On a side note...Packard Bell still makes computers? I thought they went out of business over a decade ago.

Hello George,

Does it do anything different with either option?

If you test them, be sure to only use the "Apply" button in case you lose video afterwards, and you can let it revert back automatically in 15 seconds of just letting it sit there.

What Windows build are you using and what sort of connection do you use to connect to your monitor, DVI or VGA.

It can be allot more helpful if you fill in your system specs, you can see the link on the bottom left side of the post.

Only problem is I can't seem to get a screen resolution larger than 1280x1024, surely that can't be right??

Hello Talia !! Welcome to SF !!

I guess the System is not using most update Display drivers. First download and update the most current display drivers then go to Screen resolution and adjust the resolution until it finds the best one.

Hope this helps,

Hi Everyone,

Ihave a new computer. Iwant to download a desktop wallpaper.Everything I see is smaller resolution than my wide screen 1140X900. How can i get these wallpapers to fit my screen?

charley1

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.

Hi matster922, and welcome to TSG.

Try right clicking on an unused area of the desktop to get a menu that should let you choose the display controller's control panel. That control panel should then let you set the the correct resolution for your display. If you can not find a suitable resolution, you may have deleted some video controller software during your clearing process. In which case you will need to re-install it.

The problem i have is that sometimes when my computer boots up it loads in a much lower resolution even though i constantly have it set to maximum. Is there any reason why it would be doing this?

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 !

For a laptop you need to use the native display of the screen. This is because the display is made up of liguid crystals and if the setting is wrong the display may look blurred.

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.

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.

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,
Jordan

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.

When I set the screen resolution to a smaller screen size it returns to the larger size on re-start of the computer. I did the traditional screen setting thing, but it always defaults to the larger size on re-start. Help!!

Woo, I feel really clever! I sorted the problem out! For those who wouldn't have know what to do...

Basically, since I couldn't find out what my graphics card was in dxdiag, I checked it out via my Device Manager and found it to be the Radeon 9000 series... So I went on the ATI website, downloaded the driver, uninstalled the current ATI stuff and installed the new stuff. Blam! All my problems are solved.

I'm only 14, too. >_>

Hey, my screen resolutions never seem to stay like they were. I had a 1440 * 900 selected which diappeared from the resolution list, so when I opned my PC this morning, my resolution was changed to something else than 1440 * 900 AND . . this resolution isn't supported anymore.

Another screen resolutions that are possible and have right dimensions, are 1680 * 1050 which is a bit too small for my eyes and 1280 * 768, which is a bit too big for my eyes. The 1440 * 900 is just about the right size, but this option seems to want to disappear every now and then. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In the Device Manager and open up Display Adapter.and Right click the Display Adapter and choose Update Driver. Choose to Install From a List, Then choose Don't Search, I will choose a driver Click Next. It will show you a couple of them, choose the Non-Microsoft driver, or the driver at the bottom of the list.See if that works. Or you can download an updated driver from the Manufacturer of the Display Drivers web site.

A:screen resolution

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.

i like to have my screen resolution on the lowest my graphics card can handle which is 1024X768 as it magnifies this on the screen so it is easier to see on my 32" lcd. the downside is that some things are impossible to do as the resolution is too small. to give you an example i have taken a screenshot of a application i have maximized, i should be able to see a few function buttons at the bottom of the application but i can not and there is no way to scroll down. on a higher screen resolution i can see the whole of the application in maximized mode.
is there a way to fix this

It sounds like W7 is auto-detecting the best resolution that the TV can run under and maintain it's aspect ration, and thus keeps changing it back.

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...
