Question about 3M Vikuiti eXtended Resolution Video Screen XRVS-120 Monitor

1 Answer

Every time I log on I have to adjust my screen resolution back to 800x600

My wife and I share the same desktop pc but have different accounts. Hers is problem free, but each time I log on my screen goes blank for a couple of seconds, then comes back with huge letters, and I have to reset my screen resolution back to 800x600 even though I click "apply" and "OK" each time. Can anyone out there help, please.?

    Sorry for my lack of information required. We are running Windows XP home edition, the resolution goes back to 640x400 (if I remember correctly), I then change it to 800x600.

    Thanks, both my wife and I are set up as administrators and have had no problems before, hoever I will have a go at those suggestions and open a new accountif I have to, (after I have mastered the art of saving my docs and photos first), as you may be aware I am somewhat of a nerd in pc problems but I will get there eventually.

    Thanks again for your suggestions, watch this space.

    What operating system are you running? Does the resolution change or does the font size just change ?

    You say you put it back to 800x600. That is as low as it goes on most
    !! Or does it start at 800x600 and you want set it at something else ?

Xp should be remembering your settings:
This may not be a solution , but it is something to look at.
Check to see if you have any accessibility settings set up on your login. This can be found in the control panel.
Check to see if both accounts are set up as administrators even though this shouldn't be the cause.
If that doesn't work, try opening another account and see what that one does.
Something must be set up slightly different in yours than in hers.
Let me know if anything helps, I'm curious myself.

The email you received was probably from fixya. They offer a premium plan where others can try to help you with your problem and get a fee to do so if done in a certain time frame.
Right now you are on the free end. Otherwise you would have gotten a bunch of attempted solutions by now. Would have brought out the hounds !!

My 933sn has this stupid problem. when playing old games at 800x600 half the screen gets streched vertically. i play all the other games at 1360x768 but some like age of empires 2 or counter strike,...

Try changing the resolution your TV is putting out; it may not be in full screen, but at least everything won't be stretched! 800x600 has a different ratio than 1360x768

Screen in two parts, just during boot

Don't worry about it. During boot time, the input to the monitor is set to a different resolution (640X480 for plain text). The monitor remembers settings for different resolution inputs, and the position is wrong but it's not a monitor problem as such. You could adjust the position and the display would be properly centered, but it's not worth the effort. Once the system starts Windows and the resolution switches to your normal settings, the display looks right. Once in Windows, you can't even set the resolution low enough to adjust the monitor; Windows won't go below 800X600 pixels.

FPD1960 TFT LCD Monitor that turns on and you see the Windows Screen, and then goes black. Each time I turn it off and then back on, it repeats this pattern. All cables are securely fastened, I am using...

Windows is using a video mode the LCD monitor can't display. The cable doesn't matter in this case. It's an issue of the refresh rate and the resolution set in the system.

When the system boots, hit F8 just before the Windows splash screen would come up. Start the computer in safe mode with networking support. It should be able to come up in safe mode because the resolution will go to 640x480 or 800x600 by default.

Once you get to the desktop, go under the desktop properties. Hit Advanced. then go under the monitor tab. Make sure the monitor is defined. If it says generic display it will give you resolutions and refresh rates you can't use. If it isn't defined, you can install the driver under properties.

Finally, set the default resolution to something easy like 800x600 and try the refresh around 60-65hrz.

Dialogue box in the middle of the screen

Out of range usually means that the computer is trying to use a resolution that is unsupported by the monitor. Try loading the PC in safe mode (for windows, press F8 before windows loads) and change the desktop resolution to 800x600, which is supported by pretty much any monitor. Restart the computer normally and you should get your video. Once inside windows you can experiment with different resolutions, and when it goes out of range, just wait 15 seconds for it to go back to 800x600.

Monitor problems

You need to change down the res. to a minor mode. i.e. 800x600 low quality. For Windows enter the protected mode - i.e. after POST (bootup) press F8 then enter with your account, or the administrator. Right-click anywhere on the empty desktop and enter "Properties" menu. Turn the screen resolution down in there (i.e. 800x600); also, check whether your current monitor is recognized by model in there. Re-adjust to a suitable working resolution. If all fails, you can also de-install the video card driver in admin protected mode to go back to basics. Of course You need to re-install it again afterwards when in your original Windows.
