Try a different resolution in the monitor to see if that helps. You can do this by right clicking on the desktop and changing the resolution within the screen properties. If that does not make a difference, try searching for updated display drivers either through the laptop manufacturers website or its possible you have a bad controller board for the LCD screen.

What happens when you change the display resolution setting? Maybe the program was written for a different resolution, so the pixels are the wrong size. That may account for the misbehavior, and very likely the menu issue. To change display resolution, open System Preferences... from the Apple menu, then click on Displays. Try a higher resolution (bigger numbers, e. g, 1280 x 854)) first if that is available. This may scale the menu and play area to their intended sizes.

I was using my laptop (Dell Inspiron 8600)when all of a sudden it froze in a destorted, bad resolution. I hit esc then a white screen came up with different colored lines on it. I turned it off and...


It sounds like either the screen or the signal cable connecting it to the motherboard is defective. The screen is going to need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

The picture is too big for the screen. the top and bottom is cute off.

You may need to change your resolution. Here are the steps:
  • Windows XP Right Click Desktop and select properties, then click the Settings tab.
  • Windows Vista Right Click Desktop and select Personalize, then on the bottom select Display Settings.
  • Windows 7 right click desktop and select Screen Resolution
Try some different resolutions until your desktop fits in your screen. You could also try moving your screen around with the options built onto your monitor.

My laptop screen went from horizontal to vertical, everything is sideways

Check your display settings. In Vista (I suspect) and Win7, right click on a spot on the desktop with no icons or programs. Select Screen Resolution. There is a drop down menu item labeled Orientation. Change this to Landscape if it is in Portrait or vice versa. (The Screen Resolution can also be accessed through the Control Panel.)

If you have a different operating system, the names may be different but it should be fairly similar.

I hope this helps.

My IBM Thinkpad A21m was working fine, then all of a sudden, the display screen size is about half of normal. When I plug a desktop monitor into it, the screen is full size. What's going on?

right click on an area of BLANK desktop and select properties
Now go to the SETTINGS tab and check the resolution and adjust it to a little higher. click APPLY then OK

If all went well you should notice a difference If not report back to this post and w will see what else needs to be done

If it did make a difference then adjust it more if you need.

Screen suddenly blank on FujitsuSiemens AmiloProFB21

I am thinking that the Video Resolution went off, so you have to try entering Safe Mode by pressing F8 until you get a menu in black and white...

Then, select Safe Mode. That would reset your video resolution.

Then, reboot the system and let it boot normal. See if it is fixed.
