Depending upon your operating system, try reducing your resolution to something lower. If your resolution is currently at 1920 x 1600, reduce it down to 1280 x 1024. This should allow you back up & regroup.

On a blank portion of your screen, <Right Click> your mouse, choose "Properties" for Windows XP or "Screen Resolution" for Windows 7, for Windows XP go to the last tab, Find the Resolution slider or drop down menu and choose a lower resolution than the one you are currently using.

If your laptop is connected to an external monitor, use the monitor menu buttons to recenter and shrink the image back to factory settings.

Samsung screen is not calibrated properly. There is a line on the right side of the screen that I can't get rid of.


Unfortunately the line didn't show up in the video.

1) New LCD screen?
Should have an Installation CD Disk that comes with it. Use it if so.
Has the Drivers on it.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Don't know which version of the Windows O/S you have.
The device in this case is the LCD monitor.

2) What is the NATIVE screen resolution for the LCD monitor.
Look up the specs on the monitor using it's Model Number on back.

For example I installed an HP 2009M 20-inch widescreen monitor, along with the 26-inch RCA ENV HDTV I use for a monitor.

I had to use the drivers from the disk, but could still not set the native resolution in Display Properties.
There is an alternate resolution to the native one that can be used.
The drivers from the disk made it so.

The 20 inch widescreen is 1600 x 900 (Pixels)
The 26 inch HDTV is set at 1360 x 768 (Pixels)

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

What is the Screen resolution setting? What is it supposed to be?
The Slider on the line is clicked on with the left mouse button, left mouse button held down; then the Slider is slid to the left to decrease screen resolution, or to the right to increase with the mouse.

Color quality should be set to High (32-bit)

1) Installing software (Drivers) from the Installation disk, (Or from the monitor manufacturers support website);
And,
2) Setting the screen resolution;

doesn't help, replace the monitor cable with a known to be good one.

Still no? Your LCD monitor is going out.

Cannot get the picture wide


Firstly you have not mentionrd thr Make & Model of your monitor.
Assuming it's a LCD Monitor you could try the following:

Modern monitors have a 'native resolution'. While most LCD monitors can display a wide variety of screen resolutions, the native resolution will always look best, since this is the screen resolution that matches the number of pixels inside the display. Any other screen resolution may look blocky or distorted, since the number of pixels used in the picture will not match the actual number in the display.

You can adjust your computers display resolution easily. For best results with your monitor, you should use the latest display drivers and monitor drivers and run your monitor in its native resolution. For more information on updating your display drivers, see this link.

How do i get my computer out of the resolution mode?


Apparently the monitor screen resolution setting is not correct. Screen resolution stays up until it is corrected.

Either the setting is off in Windows, or you have been changing the monitor settings, with the monitor.

WinXP:

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Go down to where it states Screen Resolution.

What is the pixel setting? For example mine states 1600 x 900 pixels.
I am running dual monitors, and this is the correct screen resolution for the Primary monitor.

If it wasn't I would Left-click on the Slider, hold the left mouse button down, and slide the Slider to the correct native resolution.

(Under Screen Resolution is a line. To the left it states - Less
To the right of the line it states - More
The Slider is the rectangular down arrow on the line )

ALSO;
Under the Color quality heading, make sure in the box under it, that it states - Highest (32 bit)
IF not, left-click on the blue down arrow to the right.
Then left-click right on - Highest (32 bit)

How to know what is the native resolution for your monitor?
Look at the manufacturer name, and the model number on the back.
Type this information in your browser search bar, then click on the search icon.

Look for Specifications.

If you changed the screen resolution settings with the monitor, press the Menu button. The screen should go off.

ALSO, with a new monitor there is an Installation CD Disk, provided with it.
This disk MUST be used. It has the drivers for the monitor on it.

[ Drivers: Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.

The monitor is a Device.
Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Operating System ]

How do I change my computer monitor to 1680 x 1050?


First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig. below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

xp-screen-resolution-1.gif

The areas worth noting are: google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.
Changing the ResolutionTo change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

I install window 7 but my benq 15" lcd monitar's screen rosuation not competible. pls guide me how i increase the rosulation thnx


As for your 15" LCD BENQ Monitor, "1024 x 768" pixels is the Maximum Resolution
If you increase your screen higher than the Maximum resolution you get a black screen! because the monitor cannot support the resolution higher than "1024x768" pixels.

How to change your screen resolution Win 7-> Link

FYI
Here are typical resolutions for some popular screen sizes
19-inch screen (standard ratio): 1280 x 1024 pixels
20-inch screen (standard ratio): 1600 x 1200 pixels
22-inch screen (widescreen): 1680 x 1050 pixels
24-inch screen (widescreen): 1900 x 1200 pixels

Hope it helps.

I cannt find driver for monitor LG L1953S


Actually, you should be able to use the monitor without installing a driver. If it isn't recognized automatically, just set the resolution to 1280*1024 pixel and set the screen refresh rate to 60Hz:
In Windows XP right-click on the desktop, open the Properties dialog, select Settings and set the screen resolution. Click Advanced, select the Monitor tab and set the screen refresh rate. If the proper resolution was not available in the first dialog, uncheck "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" and try again.

That being said, there is a "driver" package, also containing a color profile, available from LG here.

If this doesn't help, describe your problem in detail, let us know your operating system and which which monitor you are currently using.

What is the recomended resolution display setting for my Acer X193w monitor


Hi there,

A computer monitor is made of pixels (short for "picture element").



Monitor resolution is measured in pixels, width by height. 640 x 480 resolution means that the screen is 640 pixels wide by 480 tall, an aspect ratio of 4:3. With the exception of one resolution combination (1280 x 1024 uses a ratio of 5:4), all aspect ratios are the same.

Hope this initial information helps. Let me hear from you again for any clarifications.

Thank you for using fixya.com
