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.

How do i make the screen smaller

Make the resolution higher under the Display. Right Click on any open area on your desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

You can also get to the display by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

I want my monitor to work once again because it says cannot display video mode? i dont understand help me?

You didn't say which OS you're running. However, it looks like you need to restart your computer in safe mode. This URL explains how to get in safe mode. When the computer boots the video it will look a bit grainy and you won't be able to see the entire desktop without using the scroll bars.

Both XP and Vista don't allow you to perform such an operation through the regular procedure and, as a result, you will only be able to get a screen resolution of 800×600 with the consequence that some icons and programs won't be displayed correctly. This is because Safe Mode just loads only basic services and drivers which are strictly necessary for Windows to run.

Fortunately, by employing the following techniques, you can get around this restriction permitting you to get whatever screen resolution you want.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Under Screen Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully changed the resolution settings.
Windows Vista:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalize.
  3. Click Display Settings.
  4. Under Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced Settings.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully change the resolution settings.

Hi, i own compaq presario CQ42 369TU laptop, how do i increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 or higher ?

For Windows XP...

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.
When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.
Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.

If you cannot set it any higher than 1024x768 and you have already installed the video drivers, that is as high as it can go for your hardware.

The higher the number the smaller everything will get, For Example. 1280x 720 is much smaller than 800 x 600

I had turned the computer off in order to correct another problem, and when the computer came back on, my FONTs are very large, Icons and the inside programs as well. How can I change it back to normal?

From your description it sounds like your screen resolution changed on you. To change just right click on a blank spot on the desktop or control panel - display. Then click on the setting tab (right side top) and on this page in the middle should be display settings with a slider bar. Just move that to the right to increase the resolution. 1024 by 800 or higher is probably what you want. The actual number depends on the monitor your have. On my older lcd I use 1280x1024 as an example. The higher the resolution the smaller and sharper everything looks. The sharper it is the easier it is on your eyes. So you should go as high as you can which is usually limited by being able to read whats on the screen. ;-]

Screen is magnified

your video driver may be corrupted or your screen resolution is too low.
1. right-click on your desktop screen then click properties. A display properties window should appear. Select a higher resolution like below: 6dcf389.jpg
2. Then click APPLY and OK. You should see any changes on your screen display. OR, you can RESTART your PC to see the desired effects.
3. Also, if the above don't correct your problem, try to look at your device manager and see if all video drivers are well stored. a) Right-click on you "My Computer" and click on Properties. The settings should look like one below: 7ac946c.jpg

If you see a yellow ? opposite your Display Adapter, there reinstall your video card.

I'm not able to download the solutions disk (version 31.1)

Sorry this is a late response - I just had the issue with the T1i solutions disc ver. 20.0. on Windows XP
Right click your desktop and select Properties
Go to the Settings Tab
Under "Display" you should see it is selected to your default monitor or Plug and Play monitor.
Under that, you will see Screen Resolution on the left hand side. If the slide bar will not allow you to change this any higher, then at the bottom of the window you will see an option for Advanced
Write down your current screen resolution so you can change it back after installation is complete.
Click on Advanced - You will see tabs at the top - click on the tab marked "Monitor"
This will show you Monitor Type - under thatyou will see Screen Refresh Rate (ex. 60 hertz)
Under that is a check box marked "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display"
Uncheck this box and click "OK"
This will take you back to the screen resolution and you can change it from there. Change it to 1024x780 - this is the minimum display resolution for the installation disk.
When you have installed the software, you will want to change it back to your normal resolution
Note - if you want to use the EOS utility to download and edit your pictures, you will need to change it back to 1024x780. I just use the Windows Camera/Scanner wizard to download, and then use Adobe to edit the photos.
Hope this helps!

Anyone know a way to increase the resolution past 1024 x 768?

First, you might want to check what the maximum supported resolution of your monitor is. You can do this by looking it up on the internet or referring to the owners manual. If you cant find that information, in your graphics properties in Windows XP, click the advanced button beneath the color settings and click the monitor tab. Make sure the model listed under 'Monitor Type' matches the monitor you have. If it does, see if the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box is checked. If so, the maximum resolution is limited by your monitor and you may have to upgrade the monitor to go any higher. If the model does not match, you can try the following: click Properties->Driver Tab-> Update Driver and either load the correct ones from the manufacturers web site or use one of the Standard Monitor types provided by the windows Driver library. Be warned though: If you select a standard type with resolution higher than your monitor supports, it will not display correctly at settings higher than 1024x768, and you may have to wait for windows to change the resolution back. Another thing you can try is unchecking the 'Hide modes that this monitor cant display' box, clicking ok, and setting the resolution to something higher than 1024x768, but the same warning applies! If it does not display correctly than you know for sure that the monitor is the limiting factor.
