    Monitor won't adjust to match input resolution (1280x1024). Auto adjust feature doesn't make a difference

  • bhpdumont Sep 20, 2008

    I have the same exact problem. This computer was not in use for a while but the monitor was used on 2 other computers with no problems, then I recently reinstalled to OS on the Dell 4600 and the resolution WILL NOT change at all, there are not even any options to adjust it or update the drivers or anything. Its actually set to 800 x 600 but it has nothing has changed!

    I can not set the screen resolution of my samsung syncmaster T220HD to 1680 x 1050. This resolution is not offered with the screen properties although I connected previously already succesfully a 1680 x 1050 monitor to the same pc.

    I cannot get the native 1680x1050 on al 2216w. My compaq nx 7000  xp pro with ati card has that a native display resolution so I expected external monitor with the same resolution will be a snap. NO. 
    The most I can get is 1280 x 1024 I am VERY anoyed as there is no support from Acer (the driver is not on CD and the downloaded thing is a joke, windows would not open it)
    So far lost a day doing drivers ...nothing works. 
    Will go back to store SOON!!!

    I re-installed the OS for an emachine and now I can not change the resolution. The resolution is also set too low to re-intall the DSL and other programs. It will not give me an option to change the resolution higher. HELP!

  • maanibhai Jan 01, 2009

    So I hooked up my samsung t220hd to my computer through the DVI cable and set the monitor input to DVI.
    I started up my computer but all I see on the screen is "mode not supported".

    I put the computer on hibernate and then it shows me the hibernating screen.
    I tried to wake it up again and I see windows reloading the system but then after a sec it again shows "mode not supported".

    How can I install the driver if the screen doesn't even show me the desktop?

    my previous Viewsonic monitor was also a wide screen 22" lcd so I don't understand why I'm having this problem.

Hi David,

It looks like you're missing two more null's in the third record, the column count is only 21 and you have 23 fields in your destination table.

All your data matches up to the columns, but you'll need to insert ", null, null" before the last paren to cover CompanyURL and companyPhone):

('Karson', 'B', 'Campbell', null, 'Dr.', 'Chief Resident', 'Pediatrics', '', null, null, '585-544-1212', 'home', '1955-01-05', 'Wife: Molly Kids: Cassidy, Justine, and Cory.', 'Mountain View Hospital', null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null )

Picture not adjusting to full screen an dmonitor buttons Exit, brightness, contrast and Menu are not working also. Checked all buttons contacts are ok.I tried to search for vertical and horizontal variable...

You will need to reset the resolution to fill the screen. That is done through Windows.
If the actual menu buttons on the screen are not working, you probably need a new monitor.

Screen looks like a black tear and all covered with thin lines multicoloured all over screen

This sounds like you have broken the screen. If so, it's time to replace it. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_5977c9e010724335aef7edbe5c6923e5(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_a8061fa85c364fda82545d4b00e197ab(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

When turn on comp the start screen is black and cant read the writing

I'll have to assume that the computer is actually starting. If this is so, then the fact that you can't really see the writing on the screen means that the fluorescent backlight has burned out. If you can't adjust the brightness, then this is the most likely problem. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_1468f5205a78487fa26d4d548eda01b4(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_354835c647de45ffbb4b3d77c8253e06(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Change screen resolution

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.

For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution, and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support the higher resolutions. Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.

2aca9658-0ee7-4b8d-a582-cac335550f26.pngText is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen

  1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
