Question about HP Compaq nx7010 Notebook

1 Answer

Display is wrong - only 3 resolutions available

The screen appears stretched - it is a square resolution setting stretched to fit the rectangular screen. No correct resolution is available - it is behaving as if a different monitor is installed and the laptop's one isn't.
The screen shot shows the display options, and this is not normal - normally it shows the two available monitors for the "multiple monitor" mode and many more different screen resolutions available. The absence of adapter information does not seem to be a good thing!

How do i get it to fill the tv screen when watch it on tv using an hdmi


Either locate the video cards settings page and if available it will allow you to stretch the display to fit the screen

or

If your TV has the ability, choose a native resolution like 720 or 1080 and locate the picture settings on the TV and look for anything to do with Display Ratio, you can play around here but you will want to find 1:1 , it will fill the screen exactly to the resolution you have picked on the computer.

Intel onboard cards have a utility that allows you to stretch the screen, if you need further help, let me know what video card the laptop has and i will be able to step by step the fix.

Just look for the 1:1 ratio first, it's your best bet.

How to center my display in acer travelmate 5720


If your display is not centered try adjusting your screen resolution. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open them to open the display properties and click the settings tab for screen resolution. Set your resolution up higher. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons, thus the more fits on the screen. Normal resolution is about 1024x768.

The graphics are not normal,they are big.


First try changing the display resolution by going to display properties in control panel. Move the slider to the right. Hit apply.

If this doesn't help you out, it could be a display graphics driver problem. Try going to the support website for the laptop manufacturer and download the drivers for the display adapters.

Everything on the screen appears stretched


If you can, set the Screen resolution to the maximum native resolution your monitor supports by adjusting the slider. to 1680x1050, if you can set it to that, then Windows will automatically display at the proper aspect ratio, and the monitor will not have to stretch anything. Setting your screen resolution to match your monitor's native resolution is, by far, the preferred solution to get you the best looking display.
If that specific resolution is not available, then you'll need to try resolutions that are smaller than that, but ideally with the same aspect ratio. 1512x945, for example, would maintain the same aspect ratio. Not all monitors handle running at less than their optimal resolution well, and it may result in a slightly fuzzy display, but it won't be horizontally stretched. If this fails to fix the problem it could be a problem with your video card

Monitor Problem


This is probably the result of using the wrong display driver. It may even be set for an external monitor. If it was used with an enternal monitor, connect it up to the same one (or something similar) and use the display settings to get the computer to use the LCD as the primary.
