SOURCE: how to install screen resolution drivers?

You can change the screen resolution by going into Display Properties (right click desktop), settings.
If you are not able to drag the slider, you need to reinstall the video driver.

Let me know if you have any difficulty
Thanks
Kevin

Change the resolution on my Samsung B2030 LCD Monitor


1600X900 is a higher resolution than that of 1280X1024. Therefore 1600X900 is a better resolution. If you would like to run at the lower resolution simply right click your desktop screen and click properties. Then on the settings tab use the slider bar to adjust the resolution. Lower to the left and higher to the right. If the desired resolution is unavailable then you could try downloading and installing the latest drivers for your graphics card installed in your computer.

Your card will either be AMD/ATI Radeon or Nvidia. You will need the model number of the graphics card, the latest drivers may increase resolution support for your card.

Also look on the bottom right hand side of your screen for an Nvidia Control Panel logo in green. Right click it and select the option to "change screen resolution" This may provide you with additional resolution options.

Take care!

Hello, i got my new graphic card (ASUS EAH6850 Direct CU 1GB/D5) and i placed it in my pc and got all cables on the right place. the screen works, does everything but resolution isnt good and i cant...


First if you haven't done so, you need to install all the drivers that came with the new video card. when you first install a video card only some bare bones basic drivers are used to access and make the video card function. Those drivers will make the video seem jumpy and have low resolution.
Once that is completed and your computer is restarted, you might need to change your resolution. to do that, here is the easiest way:
Find a spot of your computer desktop without icons and right click. there should be a menu that pops up. In windows xp you need to select the menu item that says properties and click the tabs of the new window you have up until you see resolution. In windows 7 it says screen resoultion. Change the slider bar until you find it right one for you.
If you set it to high not to worry, don't hit anything for 15 seconds after you change it and will revert automatically.

If you're using the newest driver, it should support the physical display's maximum resolution. If your old display driver worked fine, roll back to it. If you can't, then you need to contact Sony to find out where to get the proper driver.

You might have one of several problems.

Your monitor might require a driver for your computer/graphics card in order to show up.
Your monitor's input might be slightly damaged.
Or your graphics card might not have the proper drivers in order to display on that kind of monitor.

I would go online and make sure your drivers are up to date for your graphics card first, then inspect your monitor to make sure no pins from the cable have broken into the input, and then make sure that your monitor is compatible with/without drivers to your graphics card.

You need to change display resolution.

Follow instructions here if you have Windows XP: Windows XP: Change your monitor resolution

Here for Vista : Windows Vista – Personalisation of the Display Properties

If changing resolution does not work, that means that you have to reinstall video drivers, in this case submit a new question on fixya giving details on computer make and model.

Changing Screem Res to 1024x720


Hi LSmitten,


So your brother has laptop, and you can't change the screen resolution, I will take a guess that most likely the screen resolution right now is 800x600 or 640x480 which most games won't work with. The most likely culprit why you are not able to adjust the video resolution is that he hasn't installed the video driver of the laptop yet. You should install the video card driver for your laptop in other for you to change the resolution of your desktop. I suggest that you download the latest video driver from the computer manufacturer's website.

Also if he is using a older laptop, the LCD screen on a laptop has a set maximum resolution that you can use only. Older model laptops can only go as high as 800x600 upto 1024x768. Most of the new laptop nowadays have a minimum LCD panel of 1280x800 widescreen. Check the PC manual to see the max resolution the LCD can handle.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
