Re: Radion 9500

Swith on your computer, press and hold down your F8 function key on the key board. this will bring up the startup menu. select safe mode. press enter twice.

Note: on the startup menu if you see something like "VGA mode", then select it and press enter twice. After system boots, just change to your required resolution. and that is it.

now the system will boot very slowly. then the desktop will appear ...

open start > click run > type msconfig > and select startup click safeboot > (VGA mode with Base video)

This option helps only in systems with Windows Xp professional.

Using Windows XP with a terrible, terrible video card. Will not go above 640x480 resolution. Only has 8mb video ram and Windows won't let me raise past that. Was wondering if there was any way to force...

if windows does not have the correct driver for the graphics card the resolution may be stuck at a "safe" setting, try downloading and installing a graphics driver, if the graphics card is very old and its maximum resolution actually is 640x480 there is no way other than replacing the card to achieve a higher resolution

The screen display looks odd and undersized, and the icons are smaller than usual

Nvidia 9300GS is a well-performing graphics card. Such display resolution problems should not occur. To resolve issues of faulty display, download and install the latest driver of your Graphics Card. Go to Nvidia's official website and get your device's WHQL Version of driver, don't go for the Beta drivers.
Thank You.

My resolution is at 800x600 and my color at 4 after I load the drivers and reboot.....any answers?

you need to set it higher, right click on an empty space on your desktop, go to properties and go to the settings tab, on the screen resolution set it to be at least 1024x768 and color quality to be 32bit.

in vista it may be a bit different but you should still be able to access to the display control area by right clicking on an empty space on your desktop, going to personalize and then adjust screen resolution.

if your new driver is the problem there are 2 things you can attempt
1. do a system restore to a previous time before updating the driver.
2. start your computer, before the xp logo comes up press f8 severaltimes. a menu will come up, select safe mode, loggin and go into computer>properties>hardware>device manager and right click on the display device go into properties, click the driver tab and do rollback driver to reload the previous driver you had installed.

it could be also that the drivers you loaded if loaded from the disk that came with your card are currently outdated, go in the webpage of the manufacturer and look for new drivers.. for installation I strongly suggest that you do that in safemode.

good luck!

Dual Monitor distorted window..

Try changing the resolution. It's best to have the same resolution on both monitors, but if they are different size, choose one that you can see most clearly in. Ex. larger monitors would preform better on higher resolutions, same with small monitors.

Resolution problem in Windows 7

Windows 7 official release is in Oct. The Windows 7 version you have is probably the Release Candidate version, this is the last Beta version before its offical release. This version does not have drivers for al lot of devices and if you cannot get the driver from ATI at this stage then you have to wait until it becomes available.
The release Candidate will shut down every hour early next year and will stop working completely in June. You will be forced to buy Windows 7 or go back to XP or Vista.

How do you change the resolution to 1920x1200?

I'm assuming that you're using either Windows Vista, or XP, and that your graphics car does support 1920x1200. You should double check to make sure that your card can support the higher resolution.

You should go to your desktop, find a blank space, and right click. Somewhere on the context menu, there should be an item that says either "personalize", or "properties." If you're using XP, it will pop up a menu, and you should browse through the tabs to find the one that controls the resolution. This will probably be in the appearance tab.

On vista, you will be taken into a control panel sub-menu. Click on Display Settings, and it will pull up a window that will allow you to alter your resolution.

If neither of these methods allow you to increase the resolution, and you're certain that your card supports the higher resolution, then you will need to get the new monitor. The operating system (or graphics drivers) will automatically pick up the new display settings once you install the larger screen, and the option should become available. If it still does not work, search for display drivers that correspond with your model of monitor.

Nvidia geforce 9400gt 1gb card problem

The maximum performance of your video card is limited by the hardware you attach it to. In the display properties of Windows, your highest resolution is 1280x1024 because your monitor is not able to go any higher than this. This resolution is a typical maximum for a 17" monitor. Some 15" can do this, and some 19" can do this. In order to get a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor with a higher native resolution. For example, a nice 24" monitor can only do 1920x1200. The video card can go higher, but it's limited by the monitor. 32bit color is your highest setting - that's 16 million colors. Your video card's 1GB of RAM only determines how much rendered data (usually 3D) it can store and move at any given moment, which is related to but not determined by your screen resolution. That's a very nice card - you should be able to get very good frame rates, color, and performance out of 32bit color and 1280x1024. If you want a higher resolution, you'll need to get a bigger monitor.

There is no problem with the video card, for sure... it is the monitor has the limit. 100% sure. I have seen a lot, even screens limited to 800 x 640... Try a different monitor instead... use a 65-70HZ type to achieve higher resolution.

Give me a Fixya on this my friend... Post me more problems if you have.... C ya later.
