Question about Computers & Internet

The readable screen has been reduced by 1 inch on either side. This happened once before but I do not remember how I fixed it. This screen size makes it impossible to read some web pages fully. Can you help me correct this problem?

    Right click on desk top /display properties/settings/change screen resolution/apply. do this at one of the settings your screen will be right. To fix problem go to your PC manufacturer and search support for settings for your make and modal. If you have a problem with that let me know make and modal. mysleuth

    push in the menu button your monitor and restore your monitor settings to factory settings or default settings, if this option doesn't exist or doesn't work
    try adjusting the width of the screen using the bottons present on the monitor.

    Also if that doesn't do it go to tools on your IE toolbar, and click on "fullscreen", you may have resized the screen by accident

Hi
Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Display
If you don't see the option "Display" clic in the option "Switch to Classic View" located at the upper left panel, and then double clic on "Display".
Clic on the tab "Settings"
There is an option called "Screen Resolution" which has a slider control, keep press this object and slide it from left to right step by step, at each step clic on the "Apply" button.
The screen will turn completely black for a couple of seconds and will be back with a new window asking you if you like your new settings while a timer counts down from 15 seconds, if you like your settings clic YES, if not, clic NO or let the timer count down to zero and your old settings will be back.
Good Luck!!!!!

Hi there.
In Vista right click on the desktop and select "personalize" then select "display settings" and set the resolution to 1024x768.
In XP right click on the desktop and select "properties" from the menu select the "settings" tab and change the resolution, if this does not work look at the monitor for the menu button there you will be able to stretch the screen.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Does your monitor have buttons on the front? Press the menu button and navigate until you find the screen size, and stretch it out to the edges of the monitor, it sounds like it's cutting off the sides of the page, if that's the case it's definitely that the monitor defaulted to the smallest possible size. Just stretch it out on the monitor with the buttons themselves.

    You posted this problem in PC desktops, leading us to believe that it was a desktop issue, please be clearer next time. Right click the desktop and go to properties, then go to settings and set the screen resolution to 1024x768 and see if this fixes the problem.

Hi, you can reset the screen to the default settings. once you do this, the screen will revert back to the slandered form. you can also adjust it by accessing your video card software as well. the reset option on the monitor is accessible by using the buttons on the monitor itself. Just hit the menu button on the monitor and select reset.

My picture display is narrow and does not cover the screen.


Does the Genie box have screen settings in in? Sometimes hd will show in smaller screens. Makes the picture nicer. If you adjust the screen size with your remote the high definition "niceness" will not be there.

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

To increase or decrease the size of objects and text on your screen 1.
Open Display in Control Panel.
2.
On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
3.
On the General tab, in the DPI setting list, click the dots per inch (dpi) setting you want to use.
4.
If you choose Other in the DPI setting list, you can set custom options in the Custom DPI Setting dialog box either by selecting one of the percentage options in the drop-down list or by clicking on the ruler and dragging the pointer to specify a setting.

Restart your computer when prompted.
Note
• To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
• If you want to increase the size of text on your screen to make it more readable, use Font size on the Appearance tab in Display Properties.
• The dpi size you specify on the General tab affects all monitors attached to your computer and all users that log on to the computer.

settings is in the lower right hand side of the screen, tap there.
display is in the middle of the screen on the left hand side about one(1) inch down from the top of the screen.
the slider for brightness is down one and one-forth inches down from the top of the screen, tap about 1 inch from the left hand side of the screen, remember it is 1 1/4 inches down the screen.

2 thin lines from top to bottom 5-6 in. from ends of screen.


if your set is a plasma then that can happen .. LCD screens are not known for that problem but it does happen to them also .. sometimes you can balance the screen a bit better by leaving a blank bright screen on for an hour or so ... also just playing wide screen often reduces the effect over time .. DLP type projection TVs dont normally do that but LCD and CRT type projections can .

PC does not hold the monitor wide screen setting.


Do you mean your internet explorer window?  You need to stretch the explorer window to the size you like, then close, it.  IE remembers the size of the last window you closed, and then when you open it, it makes the new window the same size as the last 1.

 

Hope this helps.
