How fix computer monitor stuck in low resolution


If your resolution is too low, you can change that by clicking on the Start button and then clicking on Control Panel. From the Control Panel window, click on Adjust screen resolution from beneath the Appearance and Personalization section. From the Resolution drop-down, select the highest resolution by moving the slider to the top. Your resolution should be just fine now.

To change your font size, go back to Control Panel, search for "window color" in the search box, and then click on Change window colors and metrics". You can adjust font sizes from here.

Move task bar to bottom of page


The desktop screenshot might need reducing

Click start "Control Panel."


Click "Display" and then select the Settings tab in the Display Properties window.


Use the slider bar under in the screen resolution section of the applet to change the resolution and click "Apply."

The screen repaints at the new resolution.


Click "Yes" to keep the resolution, or answer "No" at the prompt to revert to the original settings.



The taskbar is a central user interface component within the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system.


Located along the bottom of the screen by default, it includes the "Start" button, provides one-click access to all open programs and contains a collection of utility icons and the system clock in a section called the Notification Area.


Windows 2000 gives you the ability to adjust the behavior of the taskbar in several ways.


After you know where to find the proper menu item, performing this task takes only a few clicks.


Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar and select "Properties."


Click the "General" tab located along the top of the resulting dialog box.

Check the Always on Top box if you want the taskbar to appear above all other items on your screen.


Check the Auto Hide box if you want the taskbar to disappear into the bottom of the screen when you move the cursor away from the taskbar.


Check the Show Small Icons in Start Menu box if you want to enable this behavior.


Check the Show Clock box to show the system clock within the Notification Area at the right edge of the taskbar.


Check the Personalized Menus box if you want the "Start" menu to show the items you use regularly and hide the items you don't.


Click "OK" to confirm your changes.

They take effect immediately.


Hope this helps

I am getting an error message Not Optimum Mode Recommended Mode: 1280X1024 60Hz on my Samsung SyncMaster 913v monitor, what do you recommend to stop this message from occurring over and over again


If you are in windows, right click on your desktop in a blank area. On the drop down box that shows, click on Screen resolution (For Windows 7), properties (For Windows XP), or personalize (For Windows Vista). From there navigate to any tab or menu option to change video settings, or screen resolution.

There should be a slider bar to change the resolution you have, slide it to the 1280x1024 option and click apply.

I have included a video to assist further if I did not explain well enough.

My screen of computer is so big the contents are enlarged my kid has pressed some buttons pls help


Hi nayyarshelly,

I like to help you regarding your concern having big Icons on your desktop, you mentioned that your kid accidentally pressed something on the machine that made everything big, See steps below to changes the Icons or your systems desktop settings.

  • First the system should be turned ON and logged in to Windows, I am assuming that you have Windows7 on your computer.
  • On the keyboard Hold down the CTRL button while holding down the CTRL key on the mouse scroll, scroll backwards this should make things smaller again.
  • If the screen on the Internet is also big do the same thing while your Internet Explorer is open this should change the size of the text / pictures anything on the Internet explorer.
  • But if the above does a different function from what you are experiencing then I believe that you are experiencing some changes in the resolution of the screen if everything is Enlarged.
  • Click on Start then on the search bar type in display, a list will show look for Display then click on it to open up the Display window then click on Adjust resolution.
  • The resolution on your screen depends on how big the LCD screen is
  • On the Resolution page you can pretty much check each resolution on the list that will be better to you, then click on Apply lower right then OK to apply settings on this page.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

1. Had some problems recently with my lap top.


The action you took to fix your computer by resetting it has reset the screen resolution to what sounds like the XP default.

To adjust the screen resolution follow this set of instructions-

First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

I changed resolution settings by mistake.now to change them back i cant see bottom to click apply,also same problem when i try a restoe point


OK, when you first boot up, press F8 and select VGA MODE 800x600. Then when you get to the desktop, which you now will be able to see, go to your Video card resolution settings choose for now say, 800x600,and reboot,next time at the desktop, you can change resolution more carefully this time, :) Also, make sure you check the box, to apply, the resolution settings, without restarting the PC
