The problem is probably a setting with the Monitor itself. You can adjust the horizonal and vertical settings on the monitor itself. Sometimes it is accessed by a menu button on the monitor or by a knob.

Look around on the monitor and see if you can adjust it there!

I have a video card radeon hd 2400 series for vista 64 bit compatibility, will it work on xp 32? what can i do to make it work?


Hi There,
Yes it will work with Windows XP operating system.
1. If you're going to change the Vista operating system to WIN XP 32bit, you have to find WIN XP 32bit drivers for *********** board as well as the HD2400. Install Xp 32 bit
2. For HD 2400 drivers just click the link. ATI The link includes Catalyst, OpenCL and Display drivers.
3. Wait for the download to finish, Run the 32bit display driver and follow onscreen messages reboot if prompted.

A. If you're going to use it in another machine just download the display driver and attach the graphic card.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My packard bell viseo monitor makes my pic's to wide


This issue is caused by missing drivers. You may need to install the drivers (Video card drivers and the Display drivers), the setup will set the adequate resolution for the display so the images will be displayed correctly.

My viewsonic VA1701wb monitor having streching problem for images


The native resolution for that LCD is 1440x900. If you do not see that resolution in your display properties you can try to update the video driver. If it is still not displayed as an option you may need a newer graphics card. Many newer low end card support this widescreen resolution, so if you need to replace the card you will not need to spend a lot of money.

What video card is in my computer?


You can right click the mouse on the windows desktop and select PROPERTIES, there you select the SETTINGS tab and look for a resolution slider, move it and see if you can find the resolution you need.

To find out what video card you have, you can click on the ADVANCED button on that same SETTINGS tab. It will open a new window where you will need to click on the ADAPTER tab. There will be the info on the graphic card, the resolutions it can support will be listed on the LIST ALL MODES... button.

Take into account you might have an integrated graphics card, so it may be necessary to know the manufacturer of the motherboard in order to find an updated driver that supports the new resolutions of new wide screen monitors.

Any other doubt on this subject feel free to ask on this same post.

Distorted images due to wide screen


Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.

Blu-ray problems from blu-ray computer drive.


Vista takes significantly more procesing power from your CPU than XP did. The colored squares, or pixellation, are a result of your computer's processor having a bit of trouble keeping up with the demands of the Blu Ray video. To resolve this, you can do several things: Upgrade your CPU(You can upgrade the the highest CPU your current motherboard will allow) Upgrade your RAM, (RAM is fairly cheap for the bang you get and will be the cheapest upgrade option.) Max it out if you can. Reinstall XP back on your computer. (Cheapest option, period). This time, use Ghost or some other imaging program to image your Hard Drive once you get it working correctly so that you can recover in minutes as opposed to reformat-reinstall next time.
