You may be running on the generic Windows drivers. Try updating to the latest drivers for your specific video card.

My vedio card is not desply my screen fully and his size is very small


You can adjust the screen size by changing the Screen Resolution.
Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - then change the Screen resolution, I suggest you start with a Screen resolution of 1024 X 768, if this does not suit then increase the screen resolution higher.

The easiest thing to try is change the screen resolution before connecting via HDMI. The process is a little different depending on what operating system you're using.
For Windows Vista/Windows 7: 1. Right click on your desktop and select "Screen Resolution" 2. Slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. 3. Click apply.
For Windows XP: 1. Right click on your desktop and select "Properties" 2. Click on the tab to the far right that says "Settings" 3. Under Screen Resolution, slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. 4. Click apply.
Either of these resolutions should at least give you picture when you reconnect with HDMI. Once you get a picture, repeat these steps and gradually move the slider higher to get a better resolution picture. If you receive the incompatible signal message again, just wait 15 seconds and the previous setting will be restored.
If this doesn't work, you may also have to adjust the screen refresh rate. From the same window that has the screen resolution adjustment bar, click the link or button that says "Advanced." The second tab, "Monitor," has a drop-down menu to adjust the screen refresh rate. Depending on your HDTV, the most common setting for this could be 60 Hz, 70 Hz, or 120 Hz. If none of those values work for you, you should check the manual that came with your TV to check what the proper resolution and refresh rate should be for your computer connection.

The screen display looks odd and undersized, and the icons are smaller than usual


Hello,
Nvidia 9300GS is a well-performing graphics card. Such display resolution problems should not occur. To resolve issues of faulty display, download and install the latest driver of your Graphics Card. Go to Nvidia's official website and get your device's WHQL Version of driver, don't go for the Beta drivers.
Thank You.

GeForce 9400 gt, black screen problem


It looks like your graphics card changes the screen resolutions and/or refresh-rate to something beyond your monitor's capabilities.

After installing the drivers and the screen goes black, restart you're computer and press F8 to get the Windows advanced menu boot and choose "Enable VGA Mode".

When booted into Windows, right click on the desktop and select "properties", select the tab "Settings" and pick a really low resolution like "1024x768" and press the "Apply" button (but don't reboot yet when asked to). Next press the "Advanced" button, then select the tab "monitor" and change the monitor resolution to "default" or 60Hz.

Now restart your system and see wether Windows will boot normally. If so, you can change the resolution and refresh-rate back to you preferred values. Whenever you pick a too high resolution or refreshrate the screen will turn black again, but don't worry, don't press anything and just wait 15s, after which Windows will roll back to the previous setting ...

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa


Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.
