Screen compressed, can not establish 1280x800 resolution

Hi, display problem. Even when I'm at the BIOS screen, the widescreen display looks like it's compressed to normal width at the left side of the screen. There's a black bar down the right 20% or so of the screen, but a strip of the display seems to be aliased onto it. thanks for helping.

You should right click on your desktop (in the blank space, not on any icon or object) and select the Properties option. This will open your Display properties (but you knew this already). Go to the Settings tab at the end, and see if you can slide the resolution bar to 1280x800. This is the native resolution for your laptop's screen. If you select 800x600, you're widescreen laptop is attempting to display a 4:3 aspect ratio, so it cuts off what it doesn't need. If you select a widescreen resolution, it should automatically adjust so that it takes up the whole screen. If you don't have the option to go any higher than 800x600, you're laptop is missing the correct video drivers and you'll need to reinstall them. You can get the video drivers for your laptop here:

Tried hooking the computer to an external monitor. Got the welcome screen ok, then it lost sync and went black. Tried it on another plasma; same result. SVGA cable connection.

Hi there. When you connect an external display, your laptop clones your desktop to the external display, including resolution settings. First you need to check what resolution settings the plasma can display. If your laptop is set to a resolution that the external monitor can't display, then you will lose the display once the resolution settings are loaded. You can change the laptop resolution in your Display Settings.

If you don't know what settings the external monitor can display, just open your Display Settings and set your laptop resolution to 1024x768. Almost all new monitor/tv's can display it. Connect your external display, and see what happens. If it works, but the resolution doesn't look right, then just move the resolution along one more, until you find one you're comfortable with.

N.B. Some monitors/tv's "jump" resolutions. i.e. the monitor can display 1024x768, 1300x768, but not 1280x800.

Another thing to remember is that if you are running Windows Vista, you may need to check that the Windows Mobility Center recognises the external display that you are trying to use. You can find Windows Mobility Center by clicking Control Panel, then Mobile PC. It should now be listed on the screen.

Let me know how it goes, and if it works, please rate.

Changing Screem Res to 1024x720

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 i want to widen my screen

The Resolution can be changed in Windows XP by minimizing all applications, right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties. In the Display Settings window go to the Settings tab. Here you can change the resolution. I think you are wanting to use a widescreen setup so going for a resolution of 1280x800 should fill your screen. Play around with the available settings to resize the screen.

If you are using MS Vista, you need to minimize all applications to the desktop, right click, select Personalize. In the Personalize Window click on Display Settings down the bottom, modify the resolution as appropriate.

Alternatively, you may be able to find the function key that did this to your resolution. Above your F1-F12 keys there should be a little picture. If you click on the [fn] key (near the Windows key) as well as one of the F1-F12 keys you can cause different functions to be performed. This may be how the resolution changed initially.

Good luck

Toshiba A105 Laptop Screen blurry and iconcs mishaped

Go to the display properties control panel and move the resolution slider all the way to the right. Sounds like you are set in a non widescreen display mode. I think your model has a native resolution of 1280X800.
