How do I set the resolution, screen posts a box saying for best results use 1680 x 1050@60HZ, how can I set this?

In XP goto the control panel and click display. Select the Settings tab and move the screen resolution bar to the right until it says 1680x1050.
Vista should be similar to the XP instructions.
In windows 7 goto the control panel and click display. Select Adjust Resolution from the menu to the left. Now adjust the display setting to 1680x1050.

I cannot get good resolution in my Hannspree HF229H, what can I do???

The resolution you should be getting is 1680x1050. Under Windows 7, right click on your desktop then open 'Screen Resolution'. If the resolution is set to anything other than 1680x1050, set it to that. If that setting is not available then it is possible that your video card does not support that resolution. This would only effect old computers. If the resolution is set to 1680x1050 but you don't have the proper resolution onscreen, try adjusting the monitor settings using the buttons on the bottom of your monitor. Hope this help and have a nice day!

If i try to connect to 1680x1050, my screen goes dark. but when im using 1600x1000 it still desplays

The resolution 1680X1050 is the native resolution for your monitor. This means that the best view for your monitor is for this resolution. Your problem in not at the resolution, it's at the refresh rate. How to fix this? Go to the settings for your screen. At the lower right corner you will locate "for advanced users" button. Click on it and choose the "screen" tab. At the lower part of the window you will locate the "refresh rate". Click on it and change it at the lower setting (about 60 - 70 Hertz). Click on aplly - OK. You will be back to the resolution settings page. Set the resolution at 1680X1050, apply - ok. Go back to "refresh rate" window and change the setting to a higher setting STEP BY STEP. In case of an "out of range" and blaack screen DON'T DO ANYTHING, at 15 seconds you will come back to the previous settings. With this procedure you will get the native resolution for your screen with the higher refresh rate.

If connected to a 64 bit Dell Studio, it is difficult to view monitor. can you help? It works perfectly on a HP pavilion, but not the dell

Your resolution is probably not set correctly. That monitor can only support a resolution of 1024x768 - so to change that, you'll need to go into Start - Control Panel - Display Settings, and then click on the settings tab, and near the bottom where it says "display resolution" drag the slider until it says 1024x768. Press apply or ok and see if that helps.

I had to reinstall my Viewsonic monitor after getting a new hard drive. Now the screen shows everything is a horizontal stretched mode. How do I get it to normal aspect ratio?

It seems like the display resolution was not set to the optimal resolution for your monitor.

To correct this, follow this guide. I am assuming you have Windows XP.

1) Navigate to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.

2) In the Control Panel window, open Display.

In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.

3) In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.

4) Slide the Screen resolution slider all the way to the right for your optimal resolution.

5) Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any additional on screen directions.

NOTE: If the text appears too small, go back to step 4 and try a different position on the slider until you get it how you like it.

Good luck on solving your computer problem.
