Question about HP Computers & Internet

My laptop crashed so I had to have everything erased and then put back on it. But now my screen resolution is at 640 x 480 and color quality is at medium (16 bit) and I am not able to change them to anything else. What do I do it fix it? I was told to download some updates, but I can't find anything.

You have to download your video card driver to get the right resolution, Now your computer is working with the default drivers provided by windows.

Do this

Go to My computer-->>right click -->>Properties-->>Hardware--->>Device Manager-->>Display adapters

See which is your adapter that it is probably showed with this symbol ( ! )

Go to HP and download the graphic card o video card driver

That means that you will indeed need to update the drivers of your computer. As you did not state the exact model number of your computer but posted under HP i would assume your are on an HP computer. hence you may click on the link below then search for your model number or you can use teh Start Detection option. if you are not on an HP however kindly reply back with your Brand and model number so i can give more specific information.

Blurry computer screen


1) Check the screen resolution.
Right-click on My Computer, (or Computer), then at the bottom of the list click on Properties.

2) In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.
In the middle, under -> Screen resolution, is it the native screen resolution for the laptop's monitor screen? (LCD screen)

Example: 768 x 1280

Don't know?
Use the computer you are using now, and look up a replacement LCD screen for your laptop. This info will tell you what the native screen resolution is....(Will just state screen resolution, or resolution)

Also......Look to the right of Screen resolution.
Color quality is supposed to be Highest (32 bit)
If it isn't, then click on the blue side arrow, and in the list click on Highest (32 bit)

Still no?
Then don't give up on me, we're diagnosing the problem remotely.

My xbox 360 causes my hdtv screen to crash and display colored static. It only does this on the 'optimal display' of 1680x1050. I plugged in my laptop on the hdmi and it worked perfectly. Is t


Try manually choosing lower resolutions in your xbox display settings. My Insignia HDTV does that when switching resolutions like on Hulu in between commercials and then back to the show but only for a second or so. Also does this when going from the loading screens to the game screens for a few seconds when playing the game Split/Second

Adjusting pcoutput signal with windows xp


The only 'output signal' you are going to adjust is the video signal.
The only adjustment there is the Screen Resolution, and Screen Quality.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop-down list.

In the Display Properties window left-click on the Settings tab.
In the middle of the window, and on the left side, is Screen resolution.

Move the Slider to the left to Decrease the resolution.
To the right to Increase the resolution.

(The Slider is the arrow that has a green tip on the top and bottom. Sits on the line in-between Lee and More.

Put your mouse cursor on it, press the left mouse button down, and hold it down.
Now drag the Slider back and forth, by moving the mouse left to right. Set it to the Screen resolution that you desire)

Color quality:
It should state - Highest (32 bit)
If not click on the blue down arrow to the right.
Then click on Highest (32 bit)

After you set the Screen resolution and/or the Color quality, be SURE to go below, and click on Apply.

Then click on OK.

The above not what you had in mind? Post back in a Comment.

Philips HDTV connected to pc, but has scrolling lines on screen


Did you get it to work for 1080i?
I never got my pc to work for 1080i in the first place. You should scour your settings program for the video card, try 1920x1080i or 640x480p.

The settings must exist because you got it to work in the first place. But if they were suddenly erased, powerstrip is a program that you can download, it gives you unlimited control over what resolutions you want to try, but if you're too aggressive it can break everything and force you to go back to a restore point. I can get it to work for the same TV as you with 640x480p but never 1080i, and if I try 1080i everything crashes.

Screensize of acer 5670 laptop


Yes the TV could have changed your screen settings (probably to 640X480 resolution).
Go to the Control Panel, then click on Display, then the Settings TAB, then change the Screen Resolution to at least 1024X768 pixels or higher to suit your requirements.
NOTE :- The higher the resolution the smaller Icons and text will be displayed also a lower color quality display ie the best is 32 bit color.

Vertical screen lines and resolution is in extra large format.


Possibly either or a hardware fault..
Does the pc have an external monitor port? Most do.. If you can get another monitor, plug it up and use the correct hot keys (keys on your keyboard) to switch between the laptop monitpr & the external, it might help diagnose the problem. Maybe select a generic driver for the external monitor.. Although the pc will probably pick it up ok. If you need further help, let me know. Rgds.
