THE DRIVERS MAY NOT SUPPORT THAT BIG OF MONITOR AND THE VIDEO CARD GRAPHICS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THE SCREEN, PUT IT ON 720X600 SEE WHAT HAPPENS OR PUT ON LOWEST SETTING ON THE PC GRAFTIC SETTING OR LARGES RESULUTIONS SETTING, THE SOFTWARE MAYNOT SUPPORT THE TV, VESA - VERSA
MANUFACTOR IS NOT COMPATIBLE. AND I MAYBE TOTALLY WRONG
LETS SAY THE VIDEO CARD AND GRAPHICS ARE MADE FROM BOTH MANUFACTURES THAN CALL THE VENTER AND SENT THE CONVERSION SOFTWARE TO DO THAT .

JUST THINK WHEN THEY MAKE A MOVIE IT IS ON A LARGE SREEN AT THE THEATER 6-8 FT
SCREEN AND THAN IT COMES ON TO DVD THEY HAVE TO USE SOME SOFTWARE TO REDUCE THE PITCHURE SO IT CAN FIT ON THE TV SCREEN OR YOU WILL ONLY SEE PART OF THE SCREEN THAT CAN FOCUS ON

When connecting my weatinghouse flat screen to my emachine pc, tv screen says invalid format. Is there a way to change format?


Is the format refering to a file you are trying to play? If so, convert the file. It may be a resolution issue on the Computer? How are you connecting? HDMI? Do you see any thing other than the error message?

Ihad my computer mem wiped out because of virus,no fix it disc how to restore it to origunal factory settings


Reset the parameters you stated above yourself. No need for a Restoration Disk, or a Full Installation disk.

(Full Installation disk = New genuine copy of Windows.
{ Note* Microsoft makes one Master disk. From this all genuine copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

A) Can't rip CD's or movies? I suggest the free Infra Recorder.

Home page;

http://infrarecorder.org/

Screenshots;

http://infrarecorder.org/?page_id=4

B) Screen is too big?
Go to eMachines Support, your desktop computer model number, and Drivers. Download AND install the VGA drivers.

Then reset the Screen Resolution, to the native resolution of the monitor, in Display Properties.

[ Display Properties:
Windows XP;
1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen

2) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the fly-out list

To change Screen Resolution:
3) Left-click on the Settings tab

4) Go down to the middle of the small window to -
Screen resolution

5) Drag the Slider to the pixel ratio you need.
(Left-click on Slider, hold the left mouse button down, slide the mouse in the direction you want the Slider to go )

6) On Color quality to the right;
Make sure it is set at - Highest (32 bit)

If it isn't;
Left-click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the Color quality box.
Left-click on Highest (32 bit)
Left-click on Apply at the bottom right
Then left-click on OK at the bottom left

Find your monitor on the internet, if it did not come with your eMachines. See what the native resolution is.
Also, monitors come with an installation disk, which also has the drivers on it.

C) Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Themes > To the left under the heading - See Also, click on - Fonts.
Change the font size (If needed after changing Screen resolution)

D) Click on Internet Explorer
Go to your browser home page, (Yahoo, Firefox, etc), and set it up again.

E) Go to Microsoft Support, and download the new Windows Media Player,

[ Click on Windows Media > Downloads and Updates > Get Windows Media Player,

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

IF memory serves Gateway bought out eMachines, then Acer bought out Gateway, and eMachines.
I have heard it is tough, and/or expensive to obtain a Restoration Disk, plus a lengthy wait.

Otherwise it is buy a new genuine copy of Windows, install it, and when asked save the old files.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have knocked a button on my laptop the screen has gone small i can not make it bigger i have been into properties but dont know where to go next


Position your Mouse on your Desktop. Just on the background. Right click. Select Properties. Select the 'Settings' Tab. You can select the resolution of "800 x 600" for larger icons or if you want more desktop area move to the right. I am set to "1400 x900"

The other setting you should look for is the Color Quality. Generally this should be largest number. IE 32 bit.

I have a 19inch LCD monitor and the main menu resolution screen keeps blinking and wont go off. Have tried to disable it, different settings but it still does it. Can you help please


Try setting your computer itself to a lower resolution first say

1024 x 768

It may be that you are pushing the resolution to high for the monitor to handle

Not supported mode error


Hi, boot up to an F8 and select safe mode. While there change your screen settings to 800X600.

The available resolutions in the windows operating system has to be compatble with the TV screen you are hooked up to. try lower settings first.
Thank you and god luck.

Hello i purchased a philips 20PFL4122 lcd tv/pc monitor and i have a problem when i set the resolution on my pc to 640/480 as instucted in the user manual the pages are to large to fit the the screen when...


I have bad news for you.

The monitor you bought (Great Price by the way) is working exactly as designed. The problem is the 640 x 480 resolution. Almost all internet content now days is scaled for either 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 resolution. This is why every time you open a page you have to pan both left and right and up and down to see the entire page.

LCD monitiors are designed for a fixed resolution unlike CRT (TV Tube) monitors that can display different resolutions with equal clarity. This is why when you go to a higher resolution the screen is almost impossible to read.

Since your optimal resolution is 640 x 480, that is the only resolution that displays clearly. That is great for a TV, but sorely lacking as a computer monitor. It is also why the monitor was such a good price (a definite case of you get what you pay for here). So the unfortunate answer is that the monitor will never be satisfactory when used on the internet.
