How to Adjust Computer Resolution and What needs to be Considered

Everybody likes a nice looking display but of course it's beyond our control. Check out the things that we need to consider about the resolution adjustment.<br /> <ol> <li>The highest resolution of the monitor.</li> <li>The resolution of the Video card.</li></ol> Why? The monitor can only handle a limited resolution let's say you have a monitor that has a resolution of 800X600 and you have a video card with a resolution of 1280X1024, you can increase the resolution up to 1280X1024 but since your computer can only handle up to 800X600 the display will look really bad like a double vision. I hope you got the Logic of that. Now, if you want to increase the resolution of your computer consider both the monitor and the video card. Of course it would be best if both the video card and the monitor has equivalent resolution or much better the monitor to have a higher resolution than the video card for upgrade purposes.<br /> <br /> Now, to adjust the computer's resolution:<br /> <ol> <li>Right Click on your desktop</li> <li>Click on Personaliza</li> <li>Click on the Settings tab</li> <li>There you will find the drop down for the resolution of the video card</li> <li>Select the desired resolution. The higher the resolution the finer it looks</li> <li>If it gets blurry or bad, it means that the monitor cannot handle that certain resolution, so lower it down.</li> <li>Click Apply</li> <li>Click OK</li></ol> There you go! Should you have any questions feel free to post a reply on this post and i'll be more than happy to help you out with it.

Pop up of monitor adjust screen

Hi, you probably have to set the correct resolution that fits on your monitor. The correct resolution is: 1920x1200 You can set it by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing "Screen Resolution" in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you use Windows XP, right-click on your desktop and choose "Properties" Then open the rightmost tab to choose the resolution

My screen is wide and not formatted correctly. What do I need to adjust to go back to a full screen mode?

You need to find out the native resolution of your monitor, then adjust the PC video resolution to that required by your monitor. Brand and model?

My newer flat screen monitor went black but works fine when hooked up to another computer and I have an older monitor that I hooked up and the older one works fine...??

That sounds like a display/resolution setting problem on your PC. I doubt there is anything actually wrong with the PC or the monitor, since both work with different combinations, so its most likely just a setting.

Some monitors don't display anything when they get a signal/resolution that is not compatible with their displays. I would try changing the display settings on your computer with your old monitor, then switch monitors and see if your newer monitor works.

Here's how to adjust the display resolution:
If in XP, right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust/lower the resolution. If in Vista/Win7 right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there.

I need to change my montior to 96 dpi what does it mean and how????? please help

I do not know who tell you to adjust the monitor to xx DPI. First of all, you do not adjust the resolution at the monitor, the resolution adjustment is done at the PC video setting, your monitor has native resolution of 1680 x 1050 with refresh rate set to 60Hz. DPI spec is usually for printer resolution capability.
