Question about Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504 Notebook

Element on the desktop have expanded, can't find how to adjust

It seems like the screen has been stretched. We went into control panel, display to see if the size had changed. It hasn't changed, it is on the smallest setting. It seems there should be someway to reduce the sides, top and bottom, on a PC there are often dials on the monitor to adjust the picture, we can find the ability to do this on the laptop. Do you know if there are keys that will enable us to make this adjustment?

How do i change my pictures to fit my laptop screen


Please give more details on what you are trying to do.

If you want to take a picture and make it the total size of your screen as the background of your screen, then just right click on the picture and select Set as Desktop Background. If the size is not what you want then go into the display properties and select the Desktop tab and change the Position to be Stretch. Stretch will fill the whole screen with the picture. Tile will fill the whole screen with multiple little pictures. Center will put the picture in the middle of the screen.

To get to the display properties click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization.

You can also get the display properties by Right Click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties.

I am getting stretched images and text on my new LCD Dell monitor 19"


The resolution on your computer isnt set properly to the monitors native. Right click on your desktop and depending on your OS you will either see screen resolution or properties. Adjust until your screen no longer seems stretched.

Either that or your experiencing what is called over-scan. To solve this issue you need to go into your video-cards settings and change them. If you have nvidia then this will be rather easy. Simply search in your start menu for nvidia or in your bottom right hand corner you should see a green slanted eye looking icon when hovered over says nvidia control panel. In there look for the option "adjust desktop size and position"

With radeon drivers (catalyst) its equally as simple, search for catalyst or a red icon in the bottom right hand corner that says catalyst or radeon control panel. From there repeat the steps above.

How do I move my screen image a few pixels to the left?


TV - analogue (S-Video, composite) X X X TV - analogue (component) X X VGA (with EDID) X X VGA (without EDID) X Digital (DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI) X X Digital (HDTV via DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI) X X LVDS (notebook display) X If the feature is supported, the corresponding tab is available on the Adjust Desktop Size and Position page. If only one feature is supported, then only the controls for that feature appear on the page and there are no other tabs.
Scaling The scaling controls let you adjust the size of the desktop to best fit your screen. The configuration that you specify may be overridden by the settings in the Resize section.

Select a scaling mode

Aspect ratio: This setting expands the desktop as much as possible while maintaining the same dimensional proportions, or aspect ratio, as the original image. There may be some black borders, but you may prefer this setting to avoid distorting the image.
Full-screen: This setting stretches the desktop to fill the entire display screen.
No scaling: This setting leaves the display image in its original size and centres it on your screen resulting in a small though crisp image. A black border may appear around the display image.

Perform Scaling on

GPU: This causes the GPU to scale the desktop from the set resolution up to the native resolution timing.
Automatic: This setting uses a combination of display and GPU scaling to scale the desktop from the set resolution up to the native resolution timing.

Override the scaling mode set by games and programs

When this check box is checked, applications cannot change the scaling mode set on this page.

Preview

Under the Preview section you can select a resolution and refresh rate, and then the preview image shows how full-screen applications will appear on the screen, using the selected scaling configuration. The available refresh rates will depend on the scaling method selected.
Resize Some displays, such as HDTVs, extend the edges of the display beyond the visible borders of the screen. This overscan is intended to hide broadcast data that is not intended for the viewer. This results in hiding useful parts of the screen for non-broadcast content, such as the Windows desktop.
The best way to resize the screen in order to view the entire content is to use the controls provided by the display hardware.
The resize controls on the NVIDIA Control Panel are provided in case satisfactory results cannot be achieved using the controls on the display.
Position Use the arrow buttons in the image under Adjust the desktop position to adjust the position of your desktop or image on your screen.
