Re: monitor will not change resilution or screen size.

Sounds like your ether running the computer in safe mode are you need to reinstall your graphics card driver.
If you are running it in safe mode which I seriously doubt then it should say Safe mode in the corners of the screen and all you should have to do is restart the computer and everything should be ok

More likely your graphics card driver is messed up for some reason.
the easy way to update and fix the driver is to go to the manufacturer of the graphics cards web site and download the newest driver

to check what card you have go to display properties, the settings tab , click advanced then click the adapter tab and it should tell you what type it is.

when you know what brand and model you have you can go to the manufacturers download site and download the latest driver set and run the installer. these are only some of most common manufacturers I didn't mention yours just google it.

for intel graphics its
Nvidia its
ATI its

wouldn't hurt to do a virus scan sounds like something corrupted that driver and that can't be good or it could just be windows being strange
A good free antivirus if you don't have one is AVG
hope that helps!

Hi. I have a ASUS MT276HE 27 in monitor and I used it two months then stored it for 6 months in a dry room in the factory box. Now I need it but it does not power up... Any idea? Any fuse easy access?

Try changing the power cord. You can test it with the one that goes into your PC and see if the LED lights up on the screen. If it doesn't it means that the problem is internal and there is nothing much that can be done but to send it in for warranty/repair. Since you mentioned that you've used it for 8 months it should still be under warranty as most LCDs are covered for 3 years.

Philips brilliance 200w monitor no video

nice anecdote, fixing things from far is not easy, a t.v.-technician right in front of the actual screen could tell more- but they don't come for free, alas. hope that people's idea about problem solving lead up to you fixing a problem yourself - hey this here is for free - to sort wxperts, one needs feedback! thx alot

Microtek 997M monitor doesn't stay on...

The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.

Monitor screen display in stretched out and not proper

Tell me the monitor model and year of make...
if the screen displayed in different sizes and shape when u on it and change mode while in on position after few minutes then this is problem in the Horizontal-vertical section of yoke coil. check out the polyester capacitor & mosfets in that area. also check the center drive inductance and the width control inductance.
the processor might be locked due to front panel keypad keys....
the solution is ----make a call to that company they will tell u the unlocking procedure. if it still prisist then change the memory IC.

at last change the processor...

Screen resolution locked on 600X800 cannot increase

Use your tab button to navigate to the buttons. I have had this happen. Pull the screen up as far as you can to see the buttons, and then watch the buttons change as you tap the tab button, then hit enter. This will do the same as your mouse.

Rate me if this works.

White screen on xerox xa7 19i

I had the same problem but fortunately I have two of these monitors so could fiddle with the menus on the working monitor until I could work out how to fix it on the one with the white screen problem. Here's what you do:-

With the monitor on and the white screen showing press MENU, then UP 7 times, then MENU and presto! Your screen will be back to normal.

What this does is change the input from ANALOG to DIGITAL (or vice versa!) either way this worked for me.
