Re: monitor resolution


It is possible that it is not a monitor problem but rather a video card issue. If in your desktop display properties you have only 1 selection (640 X 480) then you need to install the necessary drivers for your VGA/Video chipset.

Pls post back video/graphics details. If you have a built-in to the motherboard, post the brand/model of your PC. If it is an add-on video card, pls post brand/model. It would be of help if you can also post your operating system.

Good luck and kind regards.

You need to change the display resolution of the computer. for the purpose you change the video adapter settings as follows:

Restart the computer, and while it is restarting, press F8 until the Startup menu appears. Press 3, and then press ENTER to start the computer in Safe mode.

Right-click the desktop, click Properties, and then click Settings.

then you change the resolution to 1024x768

and restart computer in normal mode

hope it will work, feel free for further assistance

I have samsung syncmaster 740nw how can i increase screen resolution to 1024x768?

you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.

I changed resolution from 640x480 to 1024x768 and all i get now is a blank screen. cannot get back in to change resolution back to 640x480

reboot the computer in "safe mode with networking" by rebooting the machine and during the manufactures name screen, tap the F8 key and you will see the muli-boot menu come up. Safe mode usually loads a resolution the video card and monitor agree on. You may have corrupt video drivers that give the black screen. While in safe mode, go online to windows update and let it scan your system, choose custom installation and look for the optional updates, these will be the hardware drivers you need to update your system. Check them all if you like and let windows install them automatically. Once done reboot normally and see if that clears the problem.

We have a VX2433WM monitor that now has the images in a stretched out look on the screen-how do we fix this? Thanks!

Right click on desktop, choose properties from the pop up menu, in display properties choose the settings tab and set the resolution using the slider to 1920×1080 which is your monitors optimum resolution.

Acer will not run 640x480 screen res

It probably will support. It most likely gives this message because the refresh rate is too high when it switches to that resolution. An LCD monitor runs best at 60Hz. I'm currently on a mac so I can't recall clearly the PC steps, but I believe you can right click on the desktop to get a menu. Click on Properties. Then click on the settings tab. In there you will see an advance button. Then a new window will open with more tabs. In there I think the refresh rate is in there maybe in the monitor tab. This will although, probably only change the resolution you're on. But if you have an extended driver support for your model, you may also have a list somewhere of the Refresh Rate Hz for different resolutions with out having to change the res in order to change the Hz rate. ALSO - in game settings or menu options somewhere of the game, there might be a Refresh Hz Rate somewhere. Confusing enough?? :-)  I know you'll figure it out, I only hope this helps a bit. - Scotty
