Go to Start >control Panel> display.
On the Settings tab,slide the resolutin slider to a higher number. Hit apply and it will show ou the difference and give you the option to accept or reject the changes.

You can change the size of the icons by going to Start >Control Panel > Display >Appearance. Then click on the advance button. There you will see a box to change the size of the icons.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Monitor not showing icon regularly


If you mean that your monitor isnt showing your desktop icons regularly, as in you mean some restarts shows your desktop icons and sometimes its just shows your desktop. Then the first thing i would look at is that is generally an issue that happens when both digital and analog cables are hooked up from the tower to the monitor. Look at the back of your monitor and see if there is two cables, one is the power cable, and there should only be one more either blue or white, that goes to your tower. If you do have more then that disconnect one of the video cables I personally would say keep the white one its a higher quality picture being the fact its digital. Hopefully that solves your problem!

How to change the desktop background image.


There are two ways in which to set your desired image to your desktop background.

Option 1
1) Fistly locate the picture you want as your desktop background.

2) Then double click the image to take you into Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default picture viewer. Once there right click anywhere on the picture and click Set as Desktop Background from the pop up menu.

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2

Then right click on the image and select Set as Desktop Background

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2 is a slightly quicker way of doing it as you don't really need to view the entire image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as long as you can see the thumbnail of it or you are in Filmstrip view.

To enable the thumbnail or filmstrip file view
In the picture folder click on the menu view and then click on the option Thumbnails or Filmstrip from the drop down menu. Or you can find the view icon on your tab menu.

NOTE: Just remember that if your image is in a 4:3 aspect ratio, such as 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, it will be distorted and stretched if you are using as a background on a widescreen monitor.

Older 4:3 monitors (square monitors) use sqarish image resolutions such as 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024.
Newer widescreen monitors use widescreen image resolutions such as 1152x864, 1600x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080.

Having problem with blurry pictures,loading fast blurry pic,


yeah you changed the quality of the picture with the speed choice, you can attempt to fix it using an image editing program. If you downloaded this picture as it sounds then you can just download it again, and choose the slow option, but if it doesn't give you the choice it will be in the preferences or tools menu in your browser

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Dell C521 Where to connect monitor?


This means that you have an external video card (which is not outside the computer). This video card will be plugged into the motherboard. That message is saying that the port on the back of the computer that your monitor is plugged into is the wrong one. You need to look for another port on the back of the computer.

Here is a picture of a VGA port that you should use if you have a VGA cable to connect the monitor (Blue Ends).

Here is a picture of a DVI port that you should use if you have a DVI cable to connect the monitor (White Ends).

So depending on the cable and connections that are available on your computer and your monitor depends on what you have to use. I hope that wasn't too confusing. Let me know if you need more info.

I have just got this 22'lcd Samsung 225ms. I cannot seam to fix the problem of blurry letters. This can be very hard to read even at a distance. I have searched for updates online for my nvidia g force...


This monitor will only have a sharp image at a resolution of 1680 x 1050. Any lower setting will result in blurry images.

In an LCD the pixels are fixed, and using any resolution lower than the optimal will cause blurry images. This is called Image Scaling:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_scaling

If that resolution causes the icons to be too small, you can change the DPI setting to 120 from 96, that will make them larger

When i turn my monitor on, it is blurry and has a double picture. It rights itself after about an hour. Is there any fix for this?


Is this a flat sceen or is it an older monitor? It's got to be an old monitor, unless the viseo on your motherboard has been dameged by power spikes. If it's a CRT type, the large one, it will cost to have it fixed. Cheaper to go on the Internet and order a Flat. There's lots of them on eBAY, and the seller has to make good, and they ship it to your door.

Just finished a project a while ago getting rid of almost 100 monitors. They just burn out after 4 years or more.
