You need to download new video drivers from the computer manufacturer or go to Windows Update and let windows update all your hardware drivers. When windows finishes searching for drivers it will give you the choice of express or custom. Click on custom and look in the left pane. choose Hardware, Oprional. Download and install the selected drivers. Reboot the laptop and reset your video options.

Had a power outage when it came back on the monitor font and resoultion if huge I tried to change the pixels but couldn't


you can change the resolution from the display properties of your computer.

if you're using windows xp:

right-click on desktop > properties > settings. then try to change the resolution.

if you're using windows vista/7

right-click on desktop > screen resolution then change the settings.

**if nothing happens.

check the software of your graphics/video card (nvidia etc.) i believe there is an option there where-in you can change the resolution of you computer. check if it works.

** if nothing happens

check if the driver software is installed.

for windows xp:

right-click on my computer > properties > hardware then click on device manager.

for windows vista/7:

right-click on computer > properties > device manager (left side of the window.)

when you're at device manager window, check if there's any question marks. if there is. re-install the driver and see if it works.

let me know if it solved the problem.

Trouble with video graphics


Do you mean that the icons look very large and colours are a bit harsh? if so it could be that the screen resolution is set to low.

Try this...


Right click on the desktop, and choose 'properties' from the list

a new dialog box will appear called 'display properties'

along the top is a series of tabs, the last one is called 'settings'

click on this and you will then see details of your screen resoulution.

Halfway is a slide bar called screen resoultion
for example..

less -------|------- more

move the slider untill the numbers change to 1024 by 768 pixels

to the right is another box called colour quality - change this to 'highest (32bit)

click apply

click ok

the screen will briefly go black then you will see the desktop, you will get a confirmation box asking along the lines of 'do you wish to keep these settings' click yes to this

have a play with the desktop, open some windows and see if they are now fully visable to you without having to scroll.

You can go back and change your resoultion anytime you want, by following the above. But take note, some monitors will not display all the resoultions in the list, you will get a message to say if it is or not. Just play with the settings untill your happy.

Hope this helps
Regards

Colors are way off on my screens


umm, im not trying to state the obvious but, have you checked that the colour setting is 32 bit colours (right click-properties-settings-colour quality)? also make sure that the correct drivers are installed for your monitor and GPU (graphics card). check that they are also up-to-date. also check the actual screen menu and make sure the colours are good, fidle around with them (RGB) until they are better (last resort!!!). about the printer...i have no idea!!, check out the properties when coming to print to check its not set as one colour, usually under the colour tab (for some odd reason hehe). check that the colours are equal and that certain boxes aren't ticked, i.e grayscale etc!. hope this kinda helps!
