Resolution Hi, I bought new monitor, set resolution in control panel to 1680X1050 as recommended. Clicked "Apply" and "OK". Works OK until I switch off. When rebooted reverts to smaller resolution with huge display and blurred photos. Running Windows XP. What am I doing wrong? Cheers, IvorComment by ivorbigun, posted on Dec 04, 2007Monitor is HP W2007v, A 20 inch model. Recomended resolution is 1680x1050. Smaller resolution gives blurred phots and lettering etc. Cheers, Ivor

Re: Resolution

You could check your DPI setting in the display, being a large monitor your DPI setting shoul be up around the 75 - 85 Hertz.
To access this
Control Panel --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor and then click the drop down box and see what the DPI is set to and keep trying the different options until it is clear.
Hope this helps.

How do I get missing Icons back on my PC screen

The higher the resolution, the more likely you will be able to see your icons.
1. Open Display in Control Panel. 2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply. 3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment. 4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting. Note
• To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display. • A higher screen resolution reduces the size of items on your screen and increases the relative space on your desktop • You can switch your screen resolution temporarily to 640 X 480 if you have games or other programs that are set to run at that resolution. To switch, right-click the game or program (on the desktop or on the Start menu), and then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, and then select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your display reverts to its default resolution when you close the program. • Your monitor and video adapter determine how much you can change your screen resolution. You may not be able to increase the resolution above a certain level. • Changes to screen resolution affect all users that log on to the computer. • Only the recommended screen resolutions are listed. For additional settings, click the Advanced button on the Settings tab, click the Adapter tab, and then click List all Modes. Select the resolution, color level, and refresh rate you want.

I have knocked a button on my laptop the screen has gone small i can not make it bigger i have been into properties but dont know where to go next

Position your Mouse on your Desktop. Just on the background. Right click. Select Properties. Select the 'Settings' Tab. You can select the resolution of "800 x 600" for larger icons or if you want more desktop area move to the right. I am set to "1400 x900"

The other setting you should look for is the Color Quality. Generally this should be largest number. IE 32 bit.

Hello; I have just bought the 20" HPw2007v monitor which is excellent, but I have a small screen that pops up when I turn on which says `recommended settings 1680 x 1050-60Hz; current settings, 1024 x...

It's asking you to change the display settings to match the capability of the new monitor. You're seeing distortion because the monitor settings don't match what your video card is putting out.

Go to Start/Control Panel/Display then choose the Settings Tab.

Change the screen resolution to 1680x1050 by moving the slider to the right. Press OK and the screen will change. When it asks if you want to keep the settings, you have 15 seconds to accept them.

It's possible that your video card does not support the higher settings of your new monitor.

Your user manual's Chapter 4 discusses adjustments to the display properties by using the front panel buttons or the "My Display" software from your installation CD.

If you don't have the manual, you can download it here:

Acer x213W - setting the resolution

Sorry about the delay. I also just purchased an Acer x213w and had some trouble setting up my computer in order to achieve the optimum resolution of 1680x1050.

I'm using an HP Pavilion m7170n, so it's a bit old and thus could not support this widescreen resolution. However, my computer comes with an ATI Radeon graphics card and, upon contacting HP Support, was allowed to download ATI's "Catalyst Control Centre". After installation, these drivers added the option of selecting a screen resolution of 1680x1050 from Desktop properties.

So this is my solution to you: simply google your graphics card along with 1680x1050 driver and hopefully you'll be able to download a driver update which does the same for you as it did for me.
