New 17" monitor won't display proper proportions - short & wide

I have tried everything with my properties and settings, and still have no driver than that for "standard monitor types". How do I get a driver installed for a wide lcd
I have an intel mobo D865GVHZ with integrated graphics. Do I have to install a whole new card?

SOURCE: new 17" monitor, display is wide and short, not proper proportion

The monitor should have came with an installation or drivers cd. Use this disc to install the monitor specific drivers for your operating system. If you do not have the cd then you should be able to download them from the support section of your monitor manufacturers website. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Borders on external monitor after Dell Latitude D630 wakes from sleep


Thomas Motley,
Your monitor is displaying like it is because the graphics card refresh rate has changed. Check that the display driver is correct for your graphics card and that you are not using the generic windows driver. If the driver is correct then look in desktop properties, settings, advanced, monitor and check that the refresh rate is correct for you monitor.

Thank You,

3. In the Screen Resolution section you can adjust the resolution to what your video card and monitor can support.

Note with wide screen monitors you will be able to select non wide screen resolutions so you may need to adjust the settings to get the best resolution for your monitor. Also it is recommended that you install any drivers for your monitor so that the video card can communicate to the monitor properly for the best display settings.

Trying to connect computer to LCD TV and get no signal?


Hi.


If you are trying to connect computer to LCD TV and get no signal, as a first thing do the following:

Double check cable and connection. If possible test different connections. Try using VGA, DVI or AV, depending on availability on computer and TV.

Ensure that Video drivers on computer are properly installed, and that the video adapter is working properly.

If you are using a laptop, ensure that you do not need to use a function button to enable the external display, this is pretty common on laptops.

If you are using a desktop, go to display properties, find the windows where you get the picture of two monitors, and ensure that both monitors are enabled.

On Vista try also using the 'Identify Monitor' button on Top. It is located on same properties panel as the two monitor, the main Display Property windows. From the same window you can also modify display resolution, as explained later.

If still no luck, then it may be a problem of synchronization between TV and computer, in that case try the following.

  1. Turn off TV.
  2. Disconnect TV power cord.
  3. Restart computer.
  4. With Computer already on, plug back and restart TV.


....If that does not work.


On computer, go to display properties.

First try changing computer resolution. The TV max resolution may not be available on computer. In that case try lowering down to the smallest 16:9 resolution available on computer graphic settings (usually LCD TVs are 16:9), and if that does not work, set resolution to 800x600, just to test (picture proportion will be distorted, or you get squared box on a 16:9 TV).



If that does not work, open Display Properties. In Display Properties access Advanced, and then Monitor settings (XP). On Vista choose Personalize in control panel, then Display Settings, and go straight to Monitor Settings, in there again go to Advanced.

Under the advanced monitor settings you will find a tab called monitor, in there you find the monitor frequency. Try setting this to 50Hz, if that does not work try 100 HZ, that is the output frequency of your TV. If you get unsupported frequency, revert value to normal.

Right click on the desktop in a clear area and scroll down to either resolution or properties. From this you can experiment with resolution settings to see which setting best fits your display. After each setting change the computer will ask you if you want to accept the changes, it will give you 15 seconds for each change.

Monitor displaying everything horizontally


Some monitors don't give orientation feedback to the video card to auto change the orientation when you move from a horizontal screen to vertical. what you need to do is get to display properties and advanced settings (right click desktop > properties > settings > advanced > video card settings > orientation) - you should find an option to change the orientation of the display - correct it accordingly. if the settings are not being saved after you restart, you need a video driver update - find it on your manufacturers website.

Start from lower frequency and notice the each changes. When perfectly proportionate select Apply settings.

Problem in monitor the screen doesnot get full wide of it by control panel


Assuming your running Windows as the operating system on your computer, go into Display Properties and set the refresh rate to something other than 60 hz or default. On my XP computer this can be done by right clicking on the desktop, clicking Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor. Anything in the 70, 72, or 75 hz range should work fine. If this does not fix the problem and the monitor is out of warranty trash it and get another one.
