How can I change source resolution?

The source resolution is determined by your choice of connected video device. For example; If you are using the RCA jack cord that comes with every PS3, then your resolution will be very low, and you can't change it. If you are using the HDMI connection to a HD TV, then the system automatically selects the correct resolution ratio for the TV. (720-1080p) Also note, that going between watching a video, or blueray movie, and a game, most games have the ability to change the resolution automatically as well. An example of this, is watching NETFLIX. The system can detect 720p, then you begin to play a game (COD AW) it detects and changes to 1080p.

How to I change the tv from 480p to 1080p?

The video signal sources dictate the video resolution being display. 480p I = 480p out.
You do not change it at the TV, it works the same as your PC, the video resolution is set at the PC.

How can i change the resolution on my hp laptop's cam.

You can't change the webcam resolution, but you can change the recording resolution in some programs. I use Debut for recording webcam pictures and videos and it allows me to change resolutions. Video chat services don't let you change it as they limit the resolution to save on bandwidth.

Why can't my computer change screen resolution

The resolution is dependant on the VGA card
(speed and on board ram) if u are using one.If u are using a video card have u loaded the drivers.
If u are using the mother board video check the specs you may need to allocate more ram to the video via the cmos.
Check the manufactures specs on the motherboard and or video card u may need to upgrade to a newer agp or pci video card.

Cannot change resolutions.(monitor)

This could be caused by a variety of problems:

1. The video/graphic card does not support that resolution because:

a. it does not have sufficient display memory (at least 2 or 4 megabytes is requiered, if you don't have this amount buy a new video card)

b. the video card driver has not been installed properly or is corrupted (reinstall the video driver)

2. The monitor does not support 1024x768 resolution

Change your resolution, follow this procedure:

Please provide your entire system specifications, including the monitor.
