Restart your PC and press F8 before windows bootup and select VGA Mode so that when your windows finish loading windows in a VGA mode you can easily choose the Display setting you like. Remember to keep your Screen refresh rate not so high which can permanently damage your monitor.

    Normally you can use the resolution of 1024x768 with the refresh rate of 75Mhz

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...


The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/f/open-device-manager-windows-7.htm
and reboot several times then go to Dell
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

Tip

"Aero features are'nt running in window's 7"


Solution: Check that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements for running Aero:



1-gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor


1 gigabyte (GB) of random access memory (RAM)


128-megabyte (MB) graphics card


Aero also requires a DirectX 9 class graphics processor that supports a Windows Display Driver Model Driver, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, and 32 bits per pixel.

For best results, you might also want to follow these graphics processor recommendations:



64 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution that is less than 1,310,720 pixels (for example, a 17–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has a 1280 × 1024 resolution)


128 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 21.1–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 1600 × 1200 resolution)


256 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution greater than 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 30–inch wide-screen flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 2560 × 1600 resolution)


To turn on window frame transparency, the color scheme must first be set to Windows Aero.

1.Open Personalization by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization.


2.Click Window Color and Appearance.


3.Select the Enable transparency check box.

To change the color scheme to Windows Aero

1.Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Window Color and Appearance. If the Appearance Settings dialog box is not displayed, at the bottom of the page, click Open classic appearance properties.


2.In the Color scheme list, click Windows Aero, and then click OK.

Check that your theme is an aero theme and not a normal theme. Themes are available in normal and aero and can be confusing. Set your theme as an aero theme and you should get the aero window working.

These steps will help us to have AERO running.

Thank's and Regard's:

High pitch sound coming from my old LG 700E monitor


High pitch sound maybe an indicator of a defective monitor or a wrong or incompatible resolution setting of your display properties. The usual is that you have set the resolution higher than that the monitor can hold. Boot the pc in a safe mode. This will give you an option to set the resolution to that resolution accepted by your monitor, the usual is 1024 x 600 or so, avoid higher resolution than this.

I have an Acer Aspire one and it won't let me change my resolution off of 800x600 I have windows 7 ultimate x64 (32-bit right?) i need help to get my 1024x600 res back.


Generally - you simply need to right-click anywhere on the desktop that does not have an icon present, and select "Screen resolution". Adjust the slider as needed to obtain the desired resolution. If the resolution desired is not available, choose another that is close.

Digging deeper, you might want to investigate the "Advanced settings" to make sure that you've got the correct drivers loaded in the settings for both the "Adapter" and "Monitor" tabs.

Lastly, "Windows Ultimate x64" is the 64 bit version of Windows. The 32-bit version is referred to as "Windows Ultimate x86" If there are both 32-bit and 64-bit drivers available for your Aspire, make sure you get the correct version 32-bit = x86 and 64-bit = x64. The "x86" tag came from the Intel processor line up where the "x" represented the generation (8, 16 and 32 bit CPUs) and the "86" were the last two digits to indicate the instruction set used by the CPU like this:

8086, 80286, 80386, 80486, etc.

The 64 bit CPUs are not x86 family processors, so they do not carry the x86 tag. Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you - good luck!

Showing message out of range


Your monitor settings within windows are set too high for the monitor to display... When computer first boots.. be ready and press the F8 key...
Enter safe mode.. Reset the display properties in control panel to 800 by 600 for a start. Setting the resolution too high past the monitors ability will give you that message.. Most monitors are able to display 1024 by 768 just fine.. Out of range.. means the display settings within windows are out of the monitors range of ability to display the screen resolution you have set... Good luck!!

Bought new aoc monitor and plugged in and all I get a floating screen safer saying "input not support".


Your display resolution is set to something outside the range your AOC supports.

Start Windows in VGA mode (pick that option from the startup menu you get when you press F8 after the manufacturer's logo comes when you turn the computer on). Then set the display mode to 16-bit color and 800X600 resolution. This will allow Windows to start up next time with settings just about every monitor can handle.

Once WIndows is up and running, make sure you change your display settings to something the monitor can handle. Specs are in the manual or on the manufacturer's website, but resolution of 1024X768 should be another safe choice. You should also think about installing any driver software supplied with the monitor.

Sounds like you need to install your video card drivers, to get the resolution you need.
