Before using David Bottomley's good advice below, make sure your graphic card supports a higher resolution; if not, replace it.

LAPTOP to TV Connection


Many people today want to connect their computer to a TV. Most HDTVs today have a VGA input for computer hookup. Most laptops also have a VGA output for external display. Using a male to male VGA cable, the computer can use a HDTV for a display. Sound is connected using a 3.5mm audio cable. See this web page for complete details.

The screen resolution setting determines how much information is displayed on the display screen. It is measured horizontally and vertically in pixels. At lower screen resolutions, such as 640 x 480, fewer items will fit on the screen, but they will be larger. At higher resolutions, such as 1600 x 1200, more items will fit on the screen but they will be smaller. The resolution options will vary with each computer based on the video card device, monitor size, and video & monitor drivers. If the screen looks distorted or fuzzy, then you may have an incorrect screen resolution size set for your monitor. In Windows you can change the screen resolution to match the TVs capabilities.

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Right click on any open area of the desktop screen and select Screen Resolution. There should be a recommended Resolution size or keep trying different resolution till it fits the screen. Your screen size will determine your resolution. 17in 19in 22in 24in etc.

I have been trying to increase the print size one my computer for some time can you help me?


Right click on the desktop, SCREEN RESOLUTION, lowering the resolution will increase the text size. You can also check VIEW on that menu and select large icons.

Text size is the inverse of screen resolution.

C840 resolution difficulties...


The type of screen you have is a UXGA screen. the optimal resolution for that is 1600 x 1200. changing the resolution for that will distort the screen causing black borders. If a computer has a 15.0+" SXGA+ screen with an optimized resolution of 1400x1050 and the screen's current resolution is set to 1280x1024 pixels, the display will shrink resulting in a black border surrounding the edges of the screen. Also, all other lower resolutions may be stretched to fit the screen. No border will be visible, but fonts may appear slightly fuzzy.
