You probably need to increase the screen resolution:
1. Get to desktop. (start-up screen of computer with all the icons)
2. Right click on some empty area on the desktop.
3. From the box that pops up, click 'properties".
4. In the properties box, click on the "settings" tab.
5. Locate the 'screen resolution", and move the slider towards the right until you get to 1024x768 (or higher if you want greater resolution).
6. Click on "apply" button. Screen will go blank for a few seconds and come up with the new resolution. If you are satisfied with the resolution, click 'Yes". Otherwise click "no' and do steps 1-6 again with a different resolution setting.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

My ps3 screen is magnified, how do I get it back to the original setting?


You should go under settings, and try to reset everything to default. Or, google sony ps3 phone number. They should be able to help you out without charging you... If not, youtube it, and google it.

All of a sudden the image is not displayed in full widescreen mode it is now cropped at both sides. How do I restore to full widescreen image?> Thanks John Mleczko


You need to adjust the screen resolution.
Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - change the Screen resolution.
Start at 1024 X 768 resolution and increase the resolution till you find a setting that suits you.

Images on laptop screen are a little vertically "squeezed" (round images appear a little oval).


Change to a higher resolution. If you have a widescreen monitor, your resolution should be something like 1600 X 900 or a similar widescreen format. It sounds like you have a standard format resolution on a widescreen monitor. Play around with your display settings, when you change a setting, it gives you 15 seconds to agree to the change or it will reset to its original resolution before the change, so play around until you find one you like. You can always re-arrange your desktop icons after you get the resolution the way you want.

Sanyo HT30744 Aspect Ratio Help


Do you still have the original remote? If so there is a button that says "Pix shape" that will change your aspect ratio for you. If you are watching something in HD it should say "full". If it is analog it will say "normal" in 4x3 format. If you want it stretch hit it till it says "zoom 1" or "zoom 2". If you don't have the original remote I am not sure how you would change it. You can find them on ebay if you need one. Hope this helps.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
