Re: screen resolution

LCD Help Because of this, an LCD screen which has a set resolution of 1024 x 768 can have a smaller display.

How to set the resolution in Microsoft Windows? It is important to realize that as you increase your screen area or resolution you may not be able to use all the different type of colors.

Computer Video Card Support and Help When increasing the resolution, the image will become smaller due to the screen displaying more pixels per inch.

Good Luck, Follow instructions, Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

Can anyone identify this PC Wallpaper

that's probably that your wallpaper isn't fit with your monitor resolution,for example,if your wallpaper size is 1280x1024 but your screen resolution (size) is 1024x768,it doesn't fit your screen and the wallpaper will only show half or even less
to check your current resolution,click
Start->Control Panel->click Appearance and Personalization->Click "adjust screen resolution" on the Display categories
you can see your current resolution and also you can set your resolution
To check the picture resolution,right click on the picture,select properties,click the Summary tab,and it doesn't show the resolution, click Advanced on the Summary tab
But I suggest you to download the wallpaper with a fit size instead of changing the screen resolution,because too high resolution will make your screen goes black
geez,i'm so sorry for my poor english
please rate this solution if it's work and let me know if you still has a problem.and thanks for using Fixya!

I have an IBM ThinkPad running Windows 98 Second Edition used to program older radios so it needs the older version of Windows. The display power on showing IBM Thinkpad full size, but when windows or DOS...

Hi there,

I've seen this before, the main problem is that the resolution is set too low, so it only fills part of the screen.

two ways to solve it.

1. Adjust the resolution to the optimal setting so it fills the entire screen.

2. Find the Picture Scaling option and have it Scale the picture to the entire screen.

To adjust the resolution, now its been a long time since I used windows 98, but I think you got to it by going to your desktop with the background, right click anywhere on the empty space and select properties, now on the window that opens it was the last page, settings I think, you should get an representation of your screen with a resolution lever and color options, pull the resolution lever one point to the right and hit apply and ok, do this until the picture fills the entire screen.

If your laptop has internet connectivity, I could take a look at it over remote support and solve the problem for you.

Right click on the Desktop, and then click on Properties. Click on the Settings tab, and then change the resolution to the highest setting available.

Font size much too big on the screen

By "font", do you mean everything is large on the screen, including icons, and menus?

If so, your screen resolution might be set very low.

To increase the resolution (and subsequently decrease the size of everything displayed)...

Windows XP
1.) Right-click on the desktop and choose "properties".

2.)Choose the "Setitngs" tab.

3.)Slide the "Screen Resolution" slider towards "more"(the right) and click "Apply"

4.)Your screen will flicker and test the new resolution. If you like what you see, Click "Ok". If you do not, or your screen remains black, you can wait 15 seconds, and your screen will revert to it's previous resolution.

Windows Vista
1.) Right-click on the desktop and choose "Personalize".

2.)Choose the "Display Settings"

3.)Slide the "Resolution" slider towards "high"(the right) and click "Apply"

4.)Your screen will flicker and test the new resolution. If you like what you see, Click "Ok". If you do not, or your screen remains black, you can wait 15 seconds, and your screen will revert to it's previous resolution.

Hope this helps.

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen

Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.

I hope this helps :)

Screen size

Try adjusting the resolution in the display properties. Adjust it to a lower setting, apply it, then adjust it back, and apply. This generally fixes it if it's a software glitch. If it doesn't, get back to me and we'll try something else.
