Graphics drivers windows 7

Right click on the desktop and a pop up menu will appear. Three items off the bottom select 'Screen Resolution' and click it. A new window will appear, in the centre are 4 options, choose the drop down menu (small black triangle) against Resolution. It will most likely be showing 640x480 in the window. Click the drop down menu and select your required resolution, the best one for your video card will have (recommended) against it. Click OK and wait for your screen to refresh. You should see a confirmation message asking to OK the change. If you do not see that DO NOT TOUCH any keys or buttons for a minute or so. If the screen went black and stayed that way you have chosen the wrong one. By leaving the keys alone for a minute, the display will automatically revert to the last setting thereby giving you the option to try a different setting. If you touch anything whilst the screen is black you may not see anything again, be warned!

    Ratio on wide screen not correct photos appear "squashed"

    Your screen resolution is not correct for the monitor. On Win XP just right click anywhere on screen background, and choose properties from the pop up men. In the tabbed window that opens choose the "settings" tab where you'll see a slider bar for "resolution". Try different levels till you find one you like, where round object appear round and not oval. In Vista or Win 7 when you right click the background, choose "personalize" and locate the resolution settings there.

    Hi, i have installed windows xp but display is not proper and text size all so i am enable to change Please suggest me if you can

    To change the text size.
    1) Right click on the desktop.
    2) Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
    3) Then select the "Appearance" tab.
    4) In the "Font size" field select "Normal".
    5) Click Apply.

    To change the resolution.
    1) Right click on the desktop.
    2) Select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
    3) Then select the "Settings" tab.
    4) Go to the "Screen Resolution" slider bar.
    5.1) Sliding to the left would decrease resolution meaning less quality and larger desktop icons.
    5.2) Sliding to the right would increase resolution meaning greater quality and smaller desktop icons.
    6) You will have to play around with this slider bar until you find a resolution that you like.

    NB: If your screen goes black after you have set a resolution then it means that your graphics card cannot handle that resolution, immediatly HOLD down the "Enter" key to cancel setting.

    Please take the time to rate this solution, it's the thumbs up on the top right hand side of this solution.

    Changing font size for larger monitor.

    You can adjust your settings to something more to your liking by right clicking on your desktop in an empty area - then choose "properties" from the menu that pops up.

    In the new window go to the tab that says "settings" and adjust the screen resolution to something a little larger. If you change your desktop settings in this manner then a window will pop up immediately after the adjustment asking you if you want to keep the new settings or revert back to the old one. If you don't select something within like 15-30 seconds it will change back. It does that just in case you change the settings so bad you can't see anything.

    Another place to adjust the size of your fonts is to go to the "appearance" tab of the same menu and look for "font size" and there you can make your fonts bigger and ridiculously big, in case you still need to after changing the resolution.

    I hope you find this information helpful, have a blessed day!
