Question about HP Computers & Internet

3 Answers

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.

We can't get our screen resolution back to what it was (1024x768) it changed when a game being played ended. It runs on 800x600 at the moment and everything is too big.


First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box (see left), if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.
