Laptop Screen Resolution / Graphics Card

Hi. I have a 17'' HP 8710p which has a good graphics cardbut the resolution is 1440 x 900 Max. It is VGA but had I have had the other SVGA or WXGA (something like that) then I would get a better resoltuion with tiny crisp fonts and more screen viewing.
I do have an old broken HP laptop - an HP Presario 1500 which also has a good graphics card but that screen was 15.4'' and it had a way higher resolution (somewhere like 1680 x 1400..cant remember)..
Would it help if I used that old graphics card in my new pc to get a higher resolution???

Your graphics card is on board meaning that it is attached to the motherboard in a way that you cannot detach it.....the wsxga version of the hp 8710p is able to get a higher resolution but yours unfortunately will not go beyond 1440 times 900

Without researching thru alot of tech sheets I would doubt that the old card would work in the new laptop.

Sony vpl dx 100. Why does it indicate frequency out of range when I connect my VGA cable to the the port?


Sony VPL DX 100 is a native XGA projector [1024x768]
so if u connect to a PC that has higher resolution than XGA , it will not be able to project and will show u out of range .
you will need to reduce the screen resolution in your resolution settings to XGA and the problem will be solved.
On a Laptop however, the graphics card should automatically identify the native resolution of the projector and adjust the screen resolution that is being sent from the graphics adapter.
you can also repalce the VGA cable and check if the problem gets solved as a broken pin or cable internally can also result in a similar problem!

Hi

It seems that you need to use the latest driver for the graphic card.

You can do that through visiting the manufacture's website, choose your laptop model, OS, look for video (vga) driver, and download it.
Please tell us your results
Good Luck

Can I increase the screen resolution on my EV700B monitor higher than 800x600? How?


Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Screen Resolution move the slider to the right to increase the screen resolution.
If you cannot increase the screen resolution, it means the correct video driver was not installed generic VGA driver was installed.
In this case install the video driver for your graphics card and change the screen resolution.

Recommended resolution


Most likely your video card will not support that kind of resolution through that monitor. I did not see where you mentioned the card or not, but it takes a good graphics card to push that kind of resolution.

Compaq 1592dmt windows 98 fresh install not using the hole screen?


Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution to 1028X768.
If you cannot change the screen resolution and the graphics adapter is set to generic VGA then download the Windows 98 graphic driver for your model laptop from the Compaq/HP WEB site and change the screen resolution.
Use this link to download the drivers :-

Resolution goes back to 800X600X75 sva 20" LCD


When you can't change the screen resolution then most likely only the default VGA driver has been installed. You need to install the graphics driver of the video card that is installed in your computer.
To check which graphics driver is installed, click on Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Adapter tab. If the graphics adapter is set for Standard VGA then the graphics driver was not installed.

Nvidia geforce 9400gt 1gb card problem


The maximum performance of your video card is limited by the hardware you attach it to. In the display properties of Windows, your highest resolution is 1280x1024 because your monitor is not able to go any higher than this. This resolution is a typical maximum for a 17" monitor. Some 15" can do this, and some 19" can do this. In order to get a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor with a higher native resolution. For example, a nice 24" monitor can only do 1920x1200. The video card can go higher, but it's limited by the monitor. 32bit color is your highest setting - that's 16 million colors. Your video card's 1GB of RAM only determines how much rendered data (usually 3D) it can store and move at any given moment, which is related to but not determined by your screen resolution. That's a very nice card - you should be able to get very good frame rates, color, and performance out of 32bit color and 1280x1024. If you want a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor.

Can you supply a little more info?

What monitor? make & model
What graphic's card? make and model
What PC?
What Operating system?
What res are you trying to get from?

In the mean time, things to check:
1. Graphic card driver is installed, and not just the "standard VGA" windows driver. (As this will give you this error)
2. The Graphics card is not conflicting with another device. (This you can find in Control Panel, System, Hardware devices.)
