Question about PC Desktops

Screen Display I have attached a 2216Vw computer monitor to my 4 year old Windows XP computer.I cannot get the screen display to look normal - round things are still elongated sideways football shaped.I have done multiple things trying to resolve it with the driver and with the screen menu options to no avail.The text is also blurry from line to line - shadowing.

    Hi



    Adaptor Description - SiS 661FX



    Adaptor Type - SiS 661 Rev00 SiS Compatible

    I have a P4S800-MX Motherboard (whatever that is).

    If I run that will I be able to connect on-line with an update source ?



    I have attempted to load the 2216Vw driver direct from the AOC website as well as the disc that came with the monitor. I can get so far with the installation then get a message saying no update is needed to use the device.



    If there was a simple solution to alter the way things are stretched on the control panel thing that changes height, width etc it would be a piece of cake - but nothing there makes any difference.



    Regards, Fiona.

    Thank you. I have now downloaded VGA Driver V 3.59 and half way through the installation process I get "update for plug in error". I can't get any further.



    Should I try reloading the software I initially loaded with the new monitor from their disc ? Or is this just going around in cicles ?

    To find out what video card you have if you are running Windows XP press Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information. When that comes up expand the Components section by clicking the + sign next to the word components, then click Display. Your video card is shown on the line Adapter Description.

    Please provide video card information.

The SiS 661FX is a chipset that has onboard video. Your motherboard manufacturer (or computer manufacturer if you have a name brand unit) should have the latest video drivers for your motherboard. Installing those drivers should fix the problem.

If you have already installed updated video drivers, post what you installed and where you got them from and we can go from there.

    Go here and download and install the VGA drivers -http://support.asus.com/download/downloa...

    Version 3.59
    is the most recent one. Install that if you have an older version. If you already have that version all I can suggest is buy a video card and put in there instead of using the onboard card.

Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

My monitor says out of range


You have set the resolution or refresh rate of your display adapter to a value which is too high than what is supported by your monitor.
In order to fix this, you have to do the following:
1. Reboot your computer & press F8 to boot into Safe Mode.
2. Once in Safe Mode, open Device Manager.
3. Remove the display adapter device driver form Device Manager.
4. Reboot your computer again. Windows will boot up normally & will detect the display adapter. It will prompt you for the device driver for the display adapter.
5. Use the CD that came with your display adapter to install the device driver. Once done, your problem is fixed.

Using the splitter i can not get windows 7 to recognize the other monitor and enable multiple monitors


Hello there,
As you've said you're using a display splitter, the result will be identical screen on both monitors. splitters main function is to split VGA signals into N of outputs. where N=number of outputs. no matter how many monitors you attach to your splitter, the windows only recognize monitors attached directly to your video card. Windows requires a video card that has two or more output VGA or DVI outputs to get second extended monitor or display link device.
If you're video card has two outputs follow the instruction below.
1. plug the VGA or DVI other cable on the unused port. 2. power on the second monitor. 3. right click on the desktop, click screen resolution.

4. click the display in gray, Multiple Displays: it depends on the user.
pcsyke_69.jpg
5. I selected extended display. 6. apply and ok.
pcsyke_70.jpg

This spreads your desktop over both monitors and lets you drag items between the two screens. This is how most people use two monitors, and it's the default setting for desktop computers. you can use your mouse to grab the title bar (the top portion) of a window and drag it to your new display.

Hopefully this information is helpful. Thank you for using FixYa..

Green display on boot up Please help


Check to see that there are no machine BIOS settings that could affect the monitor. Normally, the bios controls display until the OS takes over. If your XP screen after bootup looks fine, I don't see how you have a problem with your monitor setup under Windows.

Turn off panel display


Right click desktop background, Click Properties, Click Settings, Click Identify. what ever number apears on the laptop screen right click the screen icon number and click attached. This is going to tell the computer that you detached the primary screen and you will only have output to the external screen.

Hope this helps

HP a400n monitors


Sure but you shouldn't need to tell the computer what type of monitor it is, windows should simply send the signal to the monitor and poof up comes your display, more advanced versions may auto-detect or youc an select it in the control panel under display. Try craigslist to pick up a cheap monitor in your area. I got a 15'' flat for 20 bucks.

Flipped\upside down screen on my compaq


http://forums.techguy.org/tech-tips-tricks/336002-windows-xp-flipping-screen-upside.html

Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again


Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen...everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.

Monitor problem


Your screen resolution is not right. As you cant see to do anything you can boot into safe mode or vga mode and change your screen resolution to suit the monitor. I am assuming that the barcode bit is the windows but very scrunched up. If this display is additional and on top of a normal windows display you have a hardware problem
