HAve you tried adjusting the resolution and what is your current resolution?

Posted on Mar 12, 2009

  • Ekse Mar 12, 2009

    To check or adjust the resolution on your computer, on your desktop, right click and select properties, then settings, and from there you can see the slider with the resolution under it and color setting on the right. What is it currently set to and can you basicly tell me everything that reads on this area:




  • Ekse Mar 12, 2009

    The Optimal resolution for this display is 1280 × 1024 (60hz) at other settings the screen maybe out of focus higher settings might cause only part of the desktop to be displayed.



    If you have a camera, a picture might also be helpful, also have you tried another display with the computer? how about this display with another computer?



    Do you have the same problem with another display?

    Does the other computer have the same issue with your display but not with another display?

Cant get size from display settings for external 19" Samsung Sync Master 931B cant see start button everything to large


See if you can pull up the menu on your monitor. If you can reset it to factory defaults.

If you still can't see the screen properly then you need to on your computer. Go into the device manager and make sure its seeing your video card properly. Look underneath display adapters and be sure its seeing something other then standard display vga.

If not then your display adapters are missing so once you install those, the computer will recognize your monitor.

Large monitor has distorted display


try adjusting your system resolution to a largest one (as 1280 x 800), or using a DVI cable, if your monitor and video card supports it.

External Monitor (TV) causes HP nx9420 to rest screen display


You don't have that option, you have to change the screen resolution back to the higher resolution when you want to use the LCD screen.
The only solution is to buy a high definition TV with a PC video input.

Hannspree 19" HF199H LCD - Display is LARGE on monitor!


Try Control Panel - Appearance or Display- You can change how your 2nd display looks there.. Sounds like you have it set in Clone mode...(both displays show the same things)...See if you can reset the 2nd display resolution while keeping the laptop in its normal resolution. Not all machines can do this...but most recent ones should be able to.

Monitor displays white screen when connected and powered.


You've done sensible substitutions and it does sound like dead monitor.
The white screen is due to no pixels being controlled at all; what you are seeing is an unpolarized view of the backlight.

It's conceivable that a power supply problem is at fault in the display since it is unusual to lose all control over the screen as this has done.
The cause has to be common to all of the drive circuitry in the monitor and sounds like a job for a tech.

9 months? Is the warranty coverage known?
Unfortunately, warranties seem shorter all the time but it might be worth a shot to locate and email an inquiry to the manufacturer.

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok

Monitor pulses and resets the screen on a regular basis


OJ I am fairly sure that the Power Supply is failing, try replacing ALL Electrolytic Capacitors in the Power Supply section that often "Fixes" any problems. Oh use Higer Temperature and quality ones, when doing it..
