DISPLAY PROBLEMS hi we just got a new emachines computer installed with windows vista. the display quality of the monitor is terrible. there are little lines on the screen. i've tried changing the resolution and the refresh rate, but nothing has worked. the monitor user guide mentions it's compatible with windows ME/XP, but nothing about Visat. Is there something that i can download to make this work? the terrible quality is actually hurting my eyes. thanks for anyone who can help.

OK have you installed the Latest "Drivers" for your Video card? This is imperitive. Also get the Monitor Driver too, from manufacturers web site. Also can you try another monitor to see if it is "Faulty" Visat don't play nice with lotsa Video cards and Monitors if it don't have the correct drivers etc.

Installed windows 7 on a dell sx260 with gem 17 lcd cant get display drivers to work?screen all dis colored

Try going to the Dell or Microsoft Websites and loading a new display driver for Windows 7. When I first got Windows 7, both my monitor and printers required new drivers for Windows 7. It seems that Vista and XP drivers for a lot of things don't work on Win 7.

Good Luck

I have an Emachines computer with Windows Ultimate Vista on it. While I am using my computer it wi8ll go white and it won't come back on, I push the Windows butten so I can get back on internet.


Windows Vista is the worst OS ever brought out by Microsoft. You need to upgrade to Windows 7 or downgrade to Windows XP. As long as you keep using Vista you will always have problems.

The display screen got smaller.How can I bring it back to normal size?

You have to change the resolution of the screen.
Right click on the desktop, not on an icon- Properties- settings- at the "Screen Resolution" box increase the value.

The following is for Windows Vista:

Settings too low

Right-click on your desktop. You are not going to look for a "monitor" but you're going to be looking for "display properties."
So, after you right click on the desktop, click on the properties and it should show you the resolution in the lower left of the window (assuming you're using XP) Vista and Windows 7 use "personalize"\."
Anyway, assuming the correct video drivers are installed, you can change the resolution within those menu items.

Screen will not display

Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem.

My monitor requires a resolution of 1360 x 768 but I can't change it in Windows Xp eu but I could before with others versions of windows

The allowed resolution does not depend on the Operative windows used (XP,Vista, etc.) , but on the video adapter installed on the computer and on the video card driver.

If resolution 1360 x 768 was supported before on the SAME computer with a different system, then you may need to re-install the video card driver.

If resolution 1360 x 768 was not present before on same computer, then the display adapter installed on this computer may not support 1360 x 768.
Check specifications on Google, download updated display drivers, and if nothing works, then buy and fit inside the computer display adapter supporting 1360 x 768, like the one here: e-GeForce 7200 GS TC 128 MB PCI-e Graphics Card

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned

Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.

Seems like a old problem, have you solved this already?
I'm looking at the display and I can't see that it would require any software, other than a display driver installed on the computer to work properly.

Emachine 15' lcd monitor


Your query - "can the monitor work with an older HP computer?"

Normally yes, assuming that there is no hardware fault. The message is an indicator that somehow the settings of the display of the old HP computer does not match that of the Emachine 15' LCD monitor.

Perhaps what you can do is to run the old HP PC in Safe Mode (press F8 before Windows starts), using the arrow keys, select top mode setting in the Menu which is Safe Node, hit enter. Windows should then start and normally should be viewable no matter what settings the monitor can handle. On Safe Mode Windows, right click on any clear area of the desktop, click on properties, Settings tab, move the Screen resolution to the left most position, set the color quality to the lowest possible choice. Click on Advanced button, click on Monitor tab, set Screen Refresh Rate to lowest possibler, OK, OK, reboot.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back if things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards
