Can't change resolution on older monitor M50

    Yes, that's what I thought too. I get confused as to what drivers I should update to fix the problem. Would I update the driver for the Display adapter, or the driver for the computer monitor?

    Thanks in advance!

It seams your video card is not properly install. If you have more option greater then 640*800 then it means your monitor not support above resolution that you mention.

If problem is not this which I mention then please reply to this thread with explanation.

    OK
    You have to update the driver of Display adapter.

    If you didn't know about your display adapter then do this...
    Right click on desktop
    Go to properties
    Move to sitting tab
    Click advanced button
    Now click adapter tab
    There you will see your Display adapter name version
    Do to your manufacture site and download updated driver for your display card.

    I hope this will help you, don't forget to mark as answer my thread.

LCD monitors do best at their native resolution. There might be 2x2 pixels per spot at that resolution. Once you change the resolution, you might have 2.7 x 2.7 pixels per spot (merely an example). Although a resolution might fit well, at 3x3 or 4x4 pixels, all the other resolutions might look out of focus as each character bleeds over into an adjacent pixel.

The 16:9 aspect ratios are the only ones that will work correctly with this monitor; others will show black at the top and bottom or left and right, or images will be too tall or too wide.

The resolutions you should try are 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720 or 800 x 600. When I look at resolutions available for my 16:9 ratio monitor, those are the three that are bold.. others are available, but would not show the high quality display.

There are also buttons on the front of the monitor to adjust the display left/right, up/down, re-size, focus, brightness, etc.. A change there could make a difference too.

All of my photos are stretched out on this monitor--I (and everyone else) look very, very chubby (and I'm NOT! Really!!)


Leave the photo opened on view and then right click on the desktop, then click on Properties > Settings tab.

You can then experiment with the different screen resolutions until you find one that displays your photos properly and proportionately scaled. For example move the small slider to 1600 x 1200 pixels and press OK. If the photo still doesn't look ok just repeat the above steps and try another resolution setting by moving the slider further to the left or right.

StarLogic- Out of range


The computer needs its screen resolution reducing or changing in aspect ratio to suit the StarLogic monitor. Use a previously-working monitor and reduce the resolution on the computer to 1024 x 768 pixels or less (right-click an unused part of the desktop, click Properties and select Settings; slide the resolution slider to the left to adjust). The StarLogic monitor will now work; plug it in - do the resolution adjustment again as above, but increasing the resolution until you are happy. Going this way around, your computer will failsafe back to the previous (lower) resolution if the monitor says Out Of Range again, so you cannot lose the display along the way..

Black colour displaying become greenish and narrow vertical lines


Most LCD monitors have a default refresh rate of 60 Hz. Older monitors also have limited resolution. Please check your display settings and ensure you're not using a refresh rate higher than 60, or a resolution higher than what it supports. If either one is the case, you're lucky the LCD still works.

Need to change resolution but cannot get onto desktop to do so as the monitor just goes to sleep


plug it into your laptop and change the settings to the monitor to 800 by 600 pixels, then change the refresh rate to 60 hz or you could change it to 1280 by 1024 pixels and 60hz but it should work with 800 by 600 too, then plug it back into your desktop it should work then

Pixel Ratio is just a parameter Measured to Produce Good Quality Display with Fine details so Do not Mix up with Resolution and Pixel ratio.

Use the Resolution that best sutes the Application you use(which may change with time to time based on applications you use)
Keep a standard Resolution 1024 x768,or which ever suits your Vision.
NViiDiA is a Grafix card and Monitor features are 2 differnt thigs so.
Dont be concerned about the Parameters and get mixed up.
just find the best possible Resolution and enjoy your Monitor with best Quality, :)

Samsung sync master 510 monitor display problem


It may be that the LCD monitor will not display all screen resolutions so you may need to change your resolution to match the desired resolution and refresh rate of the LCD. In your case the computer should be outputting:

1024x768 pixels
60 Hz

You can change these settings by right clicking on the desktop and clicking properties and they're under the settings tab. Change the screen resolution by moving the slider to the recommended setting (1024x768)

and

under the advanced button click the "monitor" tab - make sure the screen refresh rate is set to 60 hertz (60 hz)
