Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Dell Monitor S2209W and it does not auto adjust when I change the resolution. It is connected to is a Dell PC running Windows XP. If I do not set the resolution to 1920 x 1080 the whole screen does not get used (black on both sides of the display). I have a S2309W connected to another machine running Windows XP and I am running that at 1152 x 864 and the whole screen gets filled. Do you know if there are any known issues with Flat screens connected to any PCs? Is this an operating system or graphics card issue?

The S2209W is designed to be run at the optimal resolution of 1920 x 1080 http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/S2209W/en/ug/optimal.htm
selecting a lower resolution will result in generally unsatisfactory appearance. This is due to the hard wiring of the pixels in LCD screens.
What you can do to abate the text being too small is adjust the DPI setting from the default of 96 to 120, or even 144 if you need real large text

I have a Mag Innovision 2200W Monitor. I messed with the settings, and now I get a ''mode not supported'' error. The computer is running in the background, and works with other monitors, but not this one....


Hi


To resolve this issue connect a monitor which is working with the Computer. Now right click on desktop and select properties(if windows XP) or personalize/screen resolution (if windows vista / 7)-> Now click on settings tab (windows XP) or change the resolution of your monitor-> Choose a lower resolution rate maybe 800X600. Now try connecting the other monitor with your Computer and it will work.

If not then check for the refresh rate of your monitor, adjust it to 60 Hz. You can adjust refresh rate from settings tab->advanced button(in XP). Screen resolution/Display settings(under windows 7/vista)->Advanced setting->monitor tab ->refresh rate.

This will surely resolve your issue.

Poor Resolution on Monitor 2


what u can do is.... 1) Backup your Registry first

2) go to Regedit....Start>Run>Regedit
(this is assuming u have latest Nvidia driver's installed)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/NVIDIA Corp/Global
In global. Make a new KEY called NVTWEAK
In this key, make a new DWORD value called Coolbits now, change the value of coolbits to 3.
Now when you do into Settings for GFX and advanced settings....you will notice a CLOCK SPEED/FREQUENCY tab. Change them.....go up like 20mhz....or 30 or 50...too high will screw ur card...too low isn't worth the trouble.
So, slowly go up little by little until you notice s--- on ur screen that's dodgy..then just fall back behind that Freq.
Also....another fan taking heat AWAY from the GFX card wouldn't do any harm either.

Don't forget to rate this solution.

Pop up auto adjust in prograss


I had the same problem with my HP LCD. I'll turn on the monitor and it will run auto adjust and set everything to the max making the screen very bright. What I did was remove the button panel board and put it back. Everything works fine since then.
