The issue (flashes" colored screens) you're facing could be related to drivers and could be resolved by updating the display drivers. Without the correct driver, the hardware or device that you want to use won't work properly.
Also refer to:

Let's try to boot the computer in low resolution mode and check the issue status.
Low resolution starts Windows using your current video driver and using low resolution and refresh rate settings. You can use this mode to reset your display settings.

How to change your Windows 7 display settings

In Windows 7 there are serveral ways to get to your display settings. I have detailed them below in options so that you can access them as needed.

3. Click on "Adjust resolution"

Option 3

1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel

2. Next click on "Display"

3. Click on "Adjust resolution"
Once you are in the Screen Resolution you can set the resolution you want.

Note the resolution that is set now is a wide screen resolution. If you have a standard monitor the equivalent resolution would be 1280 x 1024.

After you have made the needed changes click on Apply then OK to save your changes.

Note if you are still have trouble with your monitor displaying right you may need to install the monitor drives. Windows is not going to have the actual drivers for all monitors. So in picture below you will see where is shows "Generic PnP Monitor" this means that the computer is using a generic driver. You can access this screen by clicking on "Advance Setting".

If you need to install the monitor drivers the link below will take you through the steps of installing the monitor drivers.

Attention autoconfig please wait -- this message keeps popping up in the monitor continuously. it also adjusts the contrast anf brightness some times automatically. please help


Sounds like the "auto config " is built in to your monitor. It selects screen sizing based on the resolution, sync timing, refresh rate, etc... that your video card is adjusting on the computer.

I would suggest you to try changing the resolution in Windows and see if still receive the alert.

For more information on Screen resolution and display on monitor, check the below Microsoft Help & How-To Articles:

3: Troubleshoot monitor and video card problems :-
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Troubleshoot-monitor-and-video-card-problems

If it is doing it often and you are not changing screen resolution I would say the monitor itself might have issues. It's possible your display driver may be corrupted. I would suggest you to download and install the latest drivers for the Monitor from the manufacturer's website.

For more information on Updating a Driver and fixing driver problems, check the below Microsoft Help & How-To Articles:

2: Tips for fixing common driver problems
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Tips-for-fixing-common-driver-problems

Check the plug and cable, look for bent pins or pins pushed in.
Are you using one of those DVI/VGA adapters? If your monitor has dual inputs (DVI & VGA) have you tried using the other input?

Anyway you could check if the issue exists when the monitor is connected to another PC? Or maybe try another monitor on your PC?

I cannot drag the screen resolution,default monitor is on


It seems like you are missing your graphics/video drivers. You need them to increase the resolution, the driver you have right now is probably Window's default (if you are using Windows) and does not support any higher resolution. All you need to do is to install the video drivers your video adapter.

I have a dell Optiplex gx260. I bought a nice big Acer 23"monitor 1920x1030 but the max resolution in the graphics properties is 1280x1024 so I get a stretched screen or a poor resolution


jenny_beech

The resolution 1920x1030 is not a standard resolution. Also at the time this computer came out you did not have monitors this big ether. So you most likely will not be able to get 1920x1030 on this computer. However if you install the drivers for the monitor on the computer you should atleast get the right aspect ratio so you have poor resolution. You should have a CD with the drivers on in it. The llink below will show you haw to install them maually in Windows 7 if the drivers are not in an installer. Let me know if you need the steps for Windows XP.

Stretched monitor? I have a 19 inch LG and it looks stretched. Please help.


Hello Rbeaudoin, Hi! the stretch thing is caused due to improper computer configuration, you need to load the VGA device driver for your PC. A properly setup device driver for your VGA will produce a resolution properly for your monitor.
explanation, you see, without the device driver, windows assumes several resolutions, most of the time, this does not match the monitor resolution, so the device driver when loaded, talks to your monitor, and identifies it, then sends the proper resolution info to the VGA and windows, so that windows can create an option for that resolution. using this proper resolution the monitor can display the video properly.

I have k8vmx motherboard and amd athlone processor.but my i am unable change aspect ratio of samsung synchmaster943nwx. i want to remove distortion in the display. HELP


In windows, you can't change the aspect ratio itself. You just need to change the resolution in the windows display properties to one that has the right ratio, like 1440x900 for example. In many cases, if you cannot get this resolution on the slider, its because your monitor has no drivers installed and windows limits it to "safe" resolutions. In which case, you need to either install the drivers for the monitor either from the CD that came with it, or by downloading it from the company website. If you cannot find it at all, you can also use a Microsoft Generic driver that is included in windows, in which case it usually tells you what resolution the driver you are putting in supports, it's written in the driver name.

Projectors cause desktop settings to change; resolution, icon size, font size, etc.


Most projectors have a set resolution. If everything gets really big then the projector has a very low resolution. There is nothing that can be done to make it got to a better resolution other than right clicking (windows xp +) the desktop. Goto properties. Then click the settings tab. set the resolution to whatever your projector can support.

If windows gets stuck at a particular resolution (when you plug in another monitor and it is set like it is the projector or vise versa) You should install the monitors drivers and the projectors drivers. These should be avalible on the manufactures site(s). This will cause windows to use the profile of that device instead of the generic "pnp montior" driver. That way it will always know what resolution to set the device to when it is plugged in.

Hope this helps
If you want to know where to get the drivers just google the manufactures name +drivers. Good luck
