Using Windows XP with a terrible, terrible video card. Will not go above 640x480 resolution. Only has 8mb video ram and Windows won't let me raise past that. Was wondering if there was any way to force...


if windows does not have the correct driver for the graphics card the resolution may be stuck at a "safe" setting, try downloading and installing a graphics driver, if the graphics card is very old and its maximum resolution actually is 640x480 there is no way other than replacing the card to achieve a higher resolution

It depends upon the notebook you use if it support the resoulution you want. You can change the resolution by display properties in control panel. Also 1280*800 is used only by widescreen desktop or laptops.

I changed resolution from 640x480 to 1024x768 and all i get now is a blank screen. cannot get back in to change resolution back to 640x480


reboot the computer in "safe mode with networking" by rebooting the machine and during the manufactures name screen, tap the F8 key and you will see the muli-boot menu come up. Safe mode usually loads a resolution the video card and monitor agree on. You may have corrupt video drivers that give the black screen. While in safe mode, go online to windows update and let it scan your system, choose custom installation and look for the optional updates, these will be the hardware drivers you need to update your system. Check them all if you like and let windows install them automatically. Once done reboot normally and see if that clears the problem.

Several factors determine onscreen size of a video image produced by a Webcam. The actual Webcam hardware may be limited to a maximum resolution. The percentage of your screen filled by a Webcam image will be a factor based on your desktop resolution and the maximum resolution of the Webcam image. A third factor impacting image size is available bandwidth Webcam software may also play a role in determining image size, but in most cases the software is only limited by the Webcam output. There are several ways to optimize your results to make sure you send a Webcam image viewable at the highest resolution acceptable to relatives on the other end, while also optimizing your system to maximize available screen real estate with inbound images from relatives.
Webcam hardware is often a big limiting factor in determining maximum image size. Most Webcams on the market today output a maximum 640x480 image, which easily fills a television screen. Any of the Webcams currently available from Logitech, Creative, Apple, D-Link or the numerous niche companies marketing Webcams will support 640x480, although some produce better results than others. If you have a Digital Video camera capable of doubling as a Webcam, you may get a 720x480 maximum image size. Apple's iSight camera and some of the higher end Logitech cameras using CCD instead of CMOS image sensors produce excellent images at 640x480 in well-lit rooms.
Knowing 640x480 is the maximum image size, don't expect incoming video to fill your screen if you have your resolution at 1024x768. The graphic below is shows the relative portion of a 1024x768 screen filled by a 640x480 image at 50% of actual size. If you want the incoming video to fill your screen, reset the resolution of your monitor to 640x480 to properly accommodate the incoming video feed. This assumes your relatives are capable of sending 640x480 video from their end. If their sending limitation is 320x240, the best you can hope for is a video filling 50% of your 640x480 screen.

HP/Compaq NX9500 video problem


You are right, it doesn't necessarily sound like a hardware issue. More the likely you are looking at 2 scenarios:

1. You have a corrupt video driver. The Video BIOS on the NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 ( the video card that you have in the computer) has a default configuration of 640x480 so it doesn't necessary need a driver to function. simply try reinstalling the driver either from the driver recovery cd you received with the system or go to HP.com's driver and downloads page to get the latest. If you can't find it there, this system was also sold as a Pavilion ZD7000 series notebook, try looking under the products downloads.

2. A resolution has been chosen that the monitor doesn't support. This option is unlikely as XP by default will hide unsupported resolutions. Reinstalling the driver would correct this at the same time or right click on the desktop/properties/settings tab/monitor tab and ensure that "hide modes that this monitor can't display" is checked, apply it then try to change the resolution again, if this doesn't work then you're back to step one. Hope this helps!
