Those small ones usually have limitations on the screen resolution..my suggestion is to go to that website, where you will need the model number, and then find out. but it is clear that this one does NOT have that resolution capacity

Hi LSmitten,


So your brother has laptop, and you can't change the screen resolution, I will take a guess that most likely the screen resolution right now is 800x600 or 640x480 which most games won't work with. The most likely culprit why you are not able to adjust the video resolution is that he hasn't installed the video driver of the laptop yet. You should install the video card driver for your laptop in other for you to change the resolution of your desktop. I suggest that you download the latest video driver from the computer manufacturer's website.

Also if he is using a older laptop, the LCD screen on a laptop has a set maximum resolution that you can use only. Older model laptops can only go as high as 800x600 upto 1024x768. Most of the new laptop nowadays have a minimum LCD panel of 1280x800 widescreen. Check the PC manual to see the max resolution the LCD can handle.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Hi ,
You can right click on your laptop , and this will bring up a menu , look for screen\ res. , highlight and click , this will take you to the display prop. ,on the left hand side you see change display res. when this menu pops up , you will have a chance to change the res. I would go with 1024x 768 res. it seems to be the best res. to fill the display .

Change screen to 1024x720


The monitor and your video card are going to be what determines what resolutions you have available to use. Even on a laptop. If "settings" does not give you the option for that resolution, the display or the video chipset cannot be manipulated to display it on the laptop. Right click on desktop and select "Properties", then look under "settings". It might be available to you, but you just never checked.

One option if the laptop is not capable of it, is to plug in an external monitor that can display it.

Some games need 1440x900 resolution to play but when i go to the display settings to change it, its not there just 1360x768, 1600x1200 and lower ones. I need help????


Hi there. If you're able to get 1600x1200 on the monitor, that should suffice--anything equaling or larger than the game's required res is ok...the picture will have a little bit of border on the edges because of the higher resolution but shouldn't be a hinderance at all. Remember this...the higher the resolution, the harder the graphics card has to work to maintain proper movement of the images in the game. Use the exact res if possible. However a close, higher res is fine, too.---Rick

put your mouse out in the middle of the screen. right click. go to properties. go to settings and slide the res slidebar up to the max.
also, click on start, and with your mouse just on the boarder right click and go to properties, put a check in the box that says hide toolbar.

Bought a new XGA projector.../

It appears from researching that the native res for the Benq is too low 800x600 so I will never get a good picture even though most of the images I install are at least 10meg originals. Also the new projector will work in a bright room the Benq will not.

Anyway to increase screen res. while using pc?


No, no way to change. The imager in the unit is the physical and electronic limitation. To change that would require all new supporting electronics and optics.

Acer will not run 640x480 screen res


It probably will support. It most likely gives this message because the refresh rate is too high when it switches to that resolution. An LCD monitor runs best at 60Hz. I'm currently on a mac so I can't recall clearly the PC steps, but I believe you can right click on the desktop to get a menu. Click on Properties. Then click on the settings tab. In there you will see an advance button. Then a new window will open with more tabs. In there I think the refresh rate is in there maybe in the monitor tab. This will although, probably only change the resolution you're on. But if you have an extended driver support for your model, you may also have a list somewhere of the Refresh Rate Hz for different resolutions with out having to change the res in order to change the Hz rate. ALSO - in game settings or menu options somewhere of the game, there might be a Refresh Hz Rate somewhere. Confusing enough?? :-)  I know you'll figure it out, I only hope this helps a bit. - Scotty

Resolution notice keeps popping up every thirty seconds or so. very annoying. this happens only when using cd rom game diablo. wants me to change to 1280x1024, which my computer is set at now. otherwise...


When you load the splash screen of Diablo enter into settings. Make sure you have the game set to the screen resolution you want.
For the system. Open display properties. Click Settings, click Advanced, click Monitor. (Most games require 60 hertz) to run correctly. Change your monitor to 60 hertz. Than click the Adapter tab. Click list all modes. Move the slide bar to your normal screen res with 60 hertz. Click ok at every screen as you back out od display properties. That should stop your game from popping up.
