Re: dvd's won't play

There is to me no connection between the three problems. If the monitor behave with normal computer wor there is nothing wrong with the reolution. Analogue/HDMI cable makes no difference if fact although I must asdmoti to be getting on a bit [well into my fourth decade] when I play may monitor [which has both] by flicking the switch - I casn see no appreciable difference. Coming back to the change the reolution. If you put a driver in for the monitor - delete it let Windows sort for its self see what happens and come back

My 933sn has this stupid problem. when playing old games at 800x600 half the screen gets streched vertically. i play all the other games at 1360x768 but some like age of empires 2 or counter strike,...

Try changing the resolution your TV is putting out; it may not be in full screen, but at least everything won't be stretched! 800x600 has a different ratio than 1360x768

Pls how can i play my DVD player with my hp 1730 lcd monitor i'v tried connecting through VGA but its saying ''out of range'' what do i do? Help!

The resolution (most likely the 1080p HD) is too high for your monitor

. You will need to access the dvd player's menu somehow and reduce the resolution to one that is supported: ideally it should be the 480p SD one that your player surely supports. The exact procedure is in the manual.

If it's a few years old the power inverter could be going, otherwise it likes to run at the "native resolution" all monitiors have a "naitive resolution" i just means the resolution that the manufacturer recomends. It should be in your booklet, also diagnosing games is tough because they are graphic intense. There is a site called "can I run it" that will tell you if your machine can run specific tests. I play Call of duty modern warfare, And with dual SLI video cards I just about run it, with a dual core and 2 gigs of ram. This is subjective at best. also the refresh rate on your monitor plays a big role in these games, anything slower than 5ms is too slow for most new games. Mine are 1 and 2 MS. check the box ou the game it will tell you the minimums

Images on laptop screen are a little vertically "squeezed" (round images appear a little oval).

Change to a higher resolution. If you have a widescreen monitor, your resolution should be something like 1600 X 900 or a similar widescreen format. It sounds like you have a standard format resolution on a widescreen monitor. Play around with your display settings, when you change a setting, it gives you 15 seconds to agree to the change or it will reset to its original resolution before the change, so play around until you find one you like. You can always re-arrange your desktop icons after you get the resolution the way you want.

16:9 resolution problem

You don't specify your machine type, or the operating system, but let's assume a desktop computer and Windows XP...

Was the monitor recognized properly by the video driver?

Go to Display Properties, settings, advanced, monitor and see if Plug and Play monitor is installed. All modern graphics cards talk to the monitor to discover it's capabilities and should adjust the available resolutions so that the monitor's native resolution is available for choosing.
If some other monitor is listed there, change it to Plug and Play monitor. If still having troubles, you can do two things:
- update the video driver for your graphics card
- find the monitor's .inf file (it should be on a CD that comes with the monitor, or can be downloaded from DELL site), and install this instead of the Plug and Play monitor or whatever you have in your monitor setup (as above, go to monitor - properties - update driver).

Monitor Problem

1. Try using a different media player like k-lite windows media player classic or GOM player.

2. Is the lcd set at it's native resolution ? Set it to native resolution.

3. Has the driver for the lcd been installed and does it show up properly in device manager ? Install the lcd driver if applicable.

4. What are your system's specs, especially graphic card ?

5. Has the latest graphic card drivers been installed ? Install latest drivers.

6. Does using VGA or DVI make any difference ?

7. You would've probably already checked windows media player settings.

Hopefully some of these will solve the problem.

Right click on the desktop anywhere there is clear space.
Select Display properties and then select the last tab at the top of the window that pops up.

Input not supported when trying to play a game

the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
