Graph Resolution Problem

Hello, I've been having this problem for months now and couldn't find anyone that had a solution...My resolution is stuck on the lowest resolution (640 x 800) and I can't get it back to the normal (1024x ..) resolution. A few months ago, my screen used to change resolution but when I restarted the laptop it was normal again...Now since January, it won't go back to normal. I've tried changing it, when I click on apply the laptop restarts, takes ages to get logged on and then finally the resolution is the same (640x800). I've asked someone to help me, but all they could tell me was to save all my data and re-establish the system, which i've tried, but the calendar that comes up (that asks you to what date you want to re-establish it to) only goes to February 2007. Even choosing one of those dates, I can't get the resolution back to normal... If anyone has had the same problem or can help please tell me, thank you very much!!! Cheers

Re: Graph Resolution Problem

Hey, sounds like you need to reinstall the graphics card drivers, you should go onto acers website and look up your model under support and download the graphics card driver and install it again on your machine should work fine after that :-) All the best John

My computer's screen resolution is too low

Hello to adjust your screen resolution, right click on the desktop and either click properties for Windows XP or screen resolution for Windows Vista/7. Then for XP click settings and you will see a slider bar where you can adjust your screen resolution. For windows 7, it will be on the screen that opens up, just slide the bar into the resolution you want.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi All, I have a Compaq nx9110 notebook, can't set the resolution higher than 1024x768. Specifications I've found on various web pages say the resolution can be increased up to 1280 but I've...


1.Minimize all applications so thatyou have a clear view of your desktop. 2.Right-click an open area of thedesktop - make sure you don't right-click an icon such as My Computer bymistake. 3.From the small menu that appears,click (left mouse button) on "Properties." 4. A "Display Properties"window will appear; click the "Settings" tab to bring it to thefront. 5.In the lower right portion of thattab, find the section titled "Screen Area" with a slide bar goingfrom left to right, or from "less" to "more." 6.With your mouse, slide the bar tothe right, towards the "more" side. As you slide the bar, youshould see the word under it go from 800 X 600 to a higher resolution, such as1024 X 768. 7.I recommend trying just one notch ata time. Click "Apply" to test your new settings. Aninformational message will appear, saying that you will have 15 seconds to testyour new settings before they take effect. 8.Click "OK" to test the newsettings. The screen will change to allow you to view it, and if you wantto keep those settings, click "Yes" within 15 seconds. To keepyour old settings, click "No" or wait 15 seconds. 9.Repeat steps 6-8 until you have asetting that you are satisfied with. When you are done, click "OK" tomake the Display Properties box disappear.
1. Some video cards and/or monitors support fewer colors as the screen resolution increases. It is up to you to decide which is more important. The number of colors is to the left of the "Screen Area" section on the same tab. 2. Once you have your resolution set higher, try maximizing the window for various programs. You may be surprised how much of a spreadsheet or webpage you can view on your screen!

Resolution problem . . . .

Resolution is normally set from the "Personalize" option of control panel. Under display settings it should say something like "Generic PnP monitor on NVIDIA MCP67M" above where the resolution slider is.

If this has changed to "Generic PnP monitor on (unknown) then your problem lies with the display driver. Visit Nvidia's site for the latest all in one driver for Vista that is suitable for your laptop.
