When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.

Hi, i own compaq presario CQ42 369TU laptop, how do i increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 or higher ?

For Windows XP...

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.
When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.
Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.

If you cannot set it any higher than 1024x768 and you have already installed the video drivers, that is as high as it can go for your hardware.

I change my screen resolution to the highest setting and my screen become blank (black with blue screen in the middle). I cannot change the resolution again because the screen is blank.

Try to restart the computer in safe mode. At start up press F8 key like your are trying to get the computers attention. You should get a start up menu. Chose Safe Mode. Once in safe mode reset the screen resolution to is lowest basic setting and reboot. See if this will help. Do you have a good antivirus program. While in safe mode run a scan also. Hope this helps Fixya up.

I adjusted resolution on my HP notebook now when I turn on cant see screen. Please help

Hi Jess,

Boot the computer in SAFE MODE by Restarting the computer, and the moment its on keep tapping the F8 key untill you see a screen saying "Windows Advanced option...".

1. Select Safe Mode using the keyboard arrow key and hit enter.
2. This will load all basic drivers to start safe mode operation.
3. Go to Display Properties (WindowsXP) or Display Settings (Windows Vista) by right click on empty blank space on Desktop, then select Properties(Windows XP) or Personalize(Windows Vista).
4. Then change the resolution by sliding the Low to High slider bar. Do not press "OK" or "Apply" at this time.
5. Instead, click on Advanced Settings, and then click OK. Windows in Safe Mode will change the screen resolution according to new settings, and prompt a "Monitor Settings" dialog box prompting that desktop has been reconfigured, with countdown timer. Click on Yes to keep the new settings.
6. Alternatively, simply click on Advanced, go to Adapter tab, then click on List All Mode. Select a mode with screen resolution size and color mode that you prefer, and click on OK. Windows will apply the new resolution size and color quality on Safe Mode too.

My asus eee pc 4g desktop is bigger than the screen size so i cant see in full and have to scroll up and down. any solutions?

In short, no. The resolution on those LCD panels is extremely small and was originally designed for the small proprietary OS that came on them. Eventually Asus started putting XP on some of them, which was designed for 800x600 at the very least. As a result a lot of standard Windows dialog boxes are taller than the screen and make access to the buttons on the bottom difficult. One solution would be to use an OS that's designed for LCD screens with low resolution, like Ubuntu Netbook Remix. The only other solution is to upgrade to a netbook with a higher resolution screen, like most of the 8" netbooks.

Everything on the screen is enlarged?

You should be able to reset you screen resolution by clicking on Display inside the control panel. Go to the Settings tab once the display properties window opens and look for the screen resolution area that allows you to adjust the resolution. If its set at the low end, move it over to the high end and press Apply to test out the new sizing
