I'm having problem with my alienware laptop. Yesterday, i open the laptop then suddenly all the icons and everything turns big. And it slows down all the processes of my laptop. But when i restart it, It turns back to its old settings. But when I shut it down and open it again it turns the icons big again. And its looking for a hardware named video controller (vga compatible). It is marked a yellow question mark when i open the device manager.I am hoping for favorable response. Thank you. I just dont know the model of my laptop.

Open Control Panel, Power Options, Set to High Performance, Open Advanced Power settings, Set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, adjust other advanced settings to your preference. If this fails to fix, Return it at once while your warranty is valid. After Dell bought Alienware they sort of went south.
Most tv's are not compatible in this matter. They were made to be a tv, and not a computer monitor. Some of the newer tv's are compatible. If they have a vga port then they are compatible, but may not support or have the resolution expected. The vga to s-video cables were designed mainly for the use of the newer computers with vga ports to older flat panel monitors with s-video ports, at the time that vga was first coming out. This cable is on the verge of obsolete. So, I don't believe that you're going to be able to hook the two together, and get the outcome you want.
If it's the drivers for the laptop, you can find them at Dell's support site. If it's the drivers for the monitor (some monitors need their own drivers in order to work) you can find them at the monitor manufacturer's site or driverguide.com
your system might have damaged the systems video drivers and reverted to legacy. try to re-install the display drivers again. if you look in the system/device manager for the display it may just say vga , which can only give you 800x600 native mode. if you right click on the desktop /properties advanced /display adapter it should have the name of your video card.
