Question about Computers & Internet

Screen resolution takes a few seconds to resolve on any internet browser.

I've had this laptop for a little over a year now and just recently I've noticed on any website and any browser my screen resolution takes anywhere from 1 second to 1 minute to resolve from poor pixelated boxy looking to HD this never happened before and at first I thought it was a monitor issue because I have two additional monitors hooked up but it is not the issue is directly coming from the laptop itself? Has anyone encountered this issue and know of a way to fix before it drives me crazy?

I don't think the problem is the computer. I think it might be your internet connection. Try doing a speed test at and see if the connection is slow.

SOURCE: E153FP Monitor screen goes black light is green

The capacitors are probably bad. It is a common problem and easily fixed by taking it apart and replacing the capacitors. Try to find Rubycon Capacitors because they very rarely go bad. Do a search on google for bad caps. I have fixed about 30 monitors this way. Dell is a company well known for bad capacitors. It may not be your problem but replacing the capacitors should cost less than $10 if you do it yourself.

SOURCE: Acer AL2002W Monitor problem

a monitor that flashes on for a second and then turns off is a sign of a bad capacitor, or multiple bad capacitors.  If it is no longer under warranty you can fix it for a few dollars at the electronics store.  Unplug the monitor, pull the back off.  Look for the capacitors.  They are the round water tower looking things.  The top of the bad ones will usually be bulging, or leaking.  (the top should be flat).
Grab a soldering iron, and be sure to note the polarity (there will be a dash on one side of it, like on a battery) so that you can put the new ones in the same way.  Putting them in backwards will likely toast the monitor so get this right.  heat up the solder joints and pull the capacitors off.  Take them to an electronics store, and buy new ones. ( the capacity and voltage need to match. 12V 500uf  ... something like that, match the numbers on your capacitor(s) not the numbers I wrote here!
grab your soldering iron again, and making sure to use enough solder, but not too much put in your new capacitor(s).
I hope this is helpfull to folks.

SOURCE: MAG Innovision LT2219WDB monitor will turn on

I have the same problem with a customer's monitor (LT716S); it turned out to be damaged power supply board. As I understand it, MAG has a 3 year warranty on parts, will probably charge you a flat labor fee plus shipping. If you do not have your purchase documentation for warranty, dump it and replace. If you can, then you may wish to have it repaired.

My customer replaced theirs; I am trying to purchase replacement parts to repair...good luck.

I have a Belkin router, and a decent internet connection. However, whenever I try to watch video online (e.g. Youtube, or BBC i-player), the connection is very slow, and seems to stop every few seconds. ...

Wait. Play a little (to start the buffer), then pause the video manually for a few minutes (to allow the buffer to fill).

It ain't the router's fault.

Modern browser-plugin streaming client video players (e.g., Silverlight) need some time with your internet connection to learn your best-available resolution and how much to buffer. After a while, it will improve "all by itself."

After several minutes or so of consistent throughput, some players will upgrade your resolution. You'll see the movie suddenly get sharper.

Another tip: Friday evenings and Saturday nights the traffic is heavy and so the internet is slow. Sunday mornings you'll get better throughput.

Buffering problems

There are a few solutions. If you are on YouTube and a few other sites, you have the option of selecting a resolution. Lower the resolution till there isn't anymore buffering. You can do that by pressing the first button on the bottom right of the video that looks like a gear. Also, make sure that no other pages are open that are refreshing often and that you are not downloading files. Third, make sure you are using the most recent Adobe Flash driver. If you are not using the Google Chrome browser, you can download it at . If you have Chrome, make sure you have the most recent by clicking "About Google Chrome" on the button on the right side that looks like a wrench. If you don't have the most recent version, it will update itself. Stay in the about window until it is complete, the click "Relaunch." Finally, If you aren't watching live video, one way to improve the situation is to pause the video for a little while so it can increase its buffer. Hope this helps.

I have an IBM ThinkPad running Windows 98 Second Edition used to program older radios so it needs the older version of Windows. The display power on showing IBM Thinkpad full size, but when windows or DOS...

Hi there,

I've seen this before, the main problem is that the resolution is set too low, so it only fills part of the screen.

two ways to solve it.

1. Adjust the resolution to the optimal setting so it fills the entire screen.

2. Find the Picture Scaling option and have it Scale the picture to the entire screen.

To adjust the resolution, now its been a long time since I used windows 98, but I think you got to it by going to your desktop with the background, right click anywhere on the empty space and select properties, now on the window that opens it was the last page, settings I think, you should get an representation of your screen with a resolution lever and color options, pull the resolution lever one point to the right and hit apply and ok, do this until the picture fills the entire screen.

If your laptop has internet connectivity, I could take a look at it over remote support and solve the problem for you.

My computer has got vertical blacked out strips that are making the screen 18 mm narrower on both sides. Can you help me return my screen back to full size?

Go to
Finder » Applications » System Preferences

In the window that opens, select 'Displays' under Hardware

Here you can select a range of Resolutions, including some that state stretched. You can try a few of these (clicking on them will automatically change the resolution (the screen may go blue for a second in the process)). Most likely, the resolution you have currently selected will have a (stretched) option that may resolve your issue.

I can't use internet

Assuming that I am understanding your problem correctly, you can connect via your wireless access point, but Internet Explorer isn't working on your computer? Does the problem exist on the other computers as well? It would appear that you have a connection, just no browser. If the problem is simply the browser not working on one computer (your laptop I presume), then download another copy of the browser on a different computer, save to a flash drive and reinstall it on the problem system. The browsers can cache web pages temporaily and stores the URL's to recently visited web pages in the history folder. I also would suggest having more than one browser on every computer because of problems like this. The most popular and sometimes the primary browser used is Mozilla Firefox from Browsers do not resolve the web domain name (URL) This name resolution is performed by a Domain Name Service Server (DNS). Your ISP most likely also has a DNS server and provides the address resolution for your queries on the internet. Hope this helps.
