windows 7 Open Personalization by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization. Click Window Colour and Appearance. Under Window Colour and Appearance, click the colour you want, and then click OK. Note If you see the Appearance Settings dialog box instead of the Window Colour and Appearance window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the colour scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero. For more information, see Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: extended monitor resolution issues with gma 950 inspiron 6400 e1505

I've ran into similar problems with monitors before. Turns out that some monitors need their own driver installed in order to work with the video card, and, ?guess what?, they don't come with them. I usually find them at the manufacturer's site or driverguide.com Hope this helps, if not get back to me with the make and model and I'll do some research.

SOURCE: Display resolution goes from 1024x600 to 800x600 at start up.

try reinstalling the drivers for the onboard graphics and for the monitor. Might be the monitor is not supporting the default resolution.

NVIDIA + BenQ incorrect resolution


Hello try to renew the graphic driver from here:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Please choose the graphic card model in selection box.

Remember also to choose your windows system.

My advice is to uninstall all the the old software, before you install the new.

Try to change the screen resolution, when the installation is done.

Good luck

I have a Velocity notebook and my screen resolution driver is missing, where can I download it?


The correct video driver may not be installed.
Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and if there is a yellow ! against the Display Adapter then the video driver was not installed.
You then need to install the correct video driver, download the video driver from the laptop's manufacture WEB site.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

I cannot get good resolution in my Hannspree HF229H, what can I do???


The resolution you should be getting is 1680x1050. Under Windows 7, right click on your desktop then open 'Screen Resolution'. If the resolution is set to anything other than 1680x1050, set it to that. If that setting is not available then it is possible that your video card does not support that resolution. This would only effect old computers. If the resolution is set to 1680x1050 but you don't have the proper resolution onscreen, try adjusting the monitor settings using the buttons on the bottom of your monitor. Hope this help and have a nice day!

Some games need 1440x900 resolution to play but when i go to the display settings to change it, its not there just 1360x768, 1600x1200 and lower ones. I need help????


Hi there. If you're able to get 1600x1200 on the monitor, that should suffice--anything equaling or larger than the game's required res is ok...the picture will have a little bit of border on the edges because of the higher resolution but shouldn't be a hinderance at all. Remember this...the higher the resolution, the harder the graphics card has to work to maintain proper movement of the images in the game. Use the exact res if possible. However a close, higher res is fine, too.---Rick

On screen resolution issues


Bought a new XGA projector.../

It appears from researching that the native res for the Benq is too low 800x600 so I will never get a good picture even though most of the images I install are at least 10meg originals. Also the new projector will work in a bright room the Benq will not.

I just checked the specs on your Benq PB 6110, which has a native resolution of 800X600 and will simulate 1280X1024. When you connect it to your computer, the computer goes to 800X600, right? That is the resolution of the BenQ. How high a resolution do you want? THe highest I have seen in projectors is 1024X760, which is not that much higher. Projectors seem to lag behind monitors and Plasma/LCD/LED TVs for resolution. They must have a very small market share therefore low developement.

Distorted screen


Youre problem is because when a widescreen monitor is fed with a signal that is not ws it stretches the image sideways making people look short and fat. The only way to really fix this is to make sure the graphics card is providing a widescreen resolution to the monitor. In this case the native resolution (the resolution the screen looks best at) is 1680 x 1050 . If you right click ur desktop and go down to properties and settings u want to change the screen resolution to a widescreen res.

Hopefully 1680 x 1050 ... if this is unavailable try 1440 x 900

If you have an nvidia graphics card you can also go to the nvidia control panel and change the resolution attributes. If the widescreen res isnt available u could also try the 'change flat panel scaling' and select the do not scale option.

Please note before starting any of this make sure u have the latest graphics and monitor drivers available.
