Screen Resolution


Click the "Start" menu. Click "Settings" and "Control Panel."


Choose "Display" and "Settings" in Windows 98, ME or XP. In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."


Click on the resolution bar and slide it to the right to lower the screen's resolution and to the left to raise the screen's resolution.


The optimum screen resolution usually depends on the size of the laptop screen.


The recommended resolution for a 15-inch screen is 1024 x 768, 17- to 19-inch screen is 1280 x 1024, and 20-inch screens is 1600 x 1200.


However, you can adjust the resolution to your personal preference.


Click ""Apply to see how the resolution looks on the laptop's monitor.


Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.


Color Setting


Click the "Start" menu. Click "Settings" and "Control Panel."

Choose "Display" and "Settings" in Windows 98, ME or XP.


In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."

Click "Colors." Choose 32-bit for a high color-pixel ratio that will make the colors brighter and bring out image details.


Choose 24-bit for a medium color-pixel ratio if the screen is too bright or if images are somewhat distorted.


Some older laptops have a 16-bit color setting, but this setting is no longer recommended as it will distort images and text.


Always Click "Apply" to see how the color setting looks on the laptop's monitor.

Click "OK" to save the color settings


hope this helps

Toshiba Satellite displays a 16-bit color resolution after I replaced the video cable, what is causing this?


Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the Display, then click the Settings Tab. You can change the color from 16 Bit and you can adjust the resolution.

You can also get to the display by clicking on a blank area on the desktop and select Properties.

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...


The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/f/open-device-manager-windows-7.htm
and reboot several times then go to Dell
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

I am missing fine details in computer graphics


Hi! I'm a computer-based graphic artist and also a photographer who does digital editing. THe difference between the display settings makes a big difference. Using 32 million colors rather than 16 million is significant for image quality. Also check your display's resolution settings.

How To:

Right-click on the desktop background.
Select "Properties".
Go to "Settings" to find Screen Resolution and Color Settings adjustments.
Clicking the "Advanced" button gives you more options.

One final idea:

Check to see if you are using the correct display adapter (driver), and that it is the most up to date one. A generic, incorrect, or obsolete driver can affect visial performance.

Hope that helps!

I wish to change the screen resolution of ASUS netbook EEE PC 1005 HA with 10.5" from 1024x600 to 1024x768+ pl help me what to do


I think you mean 800X600 to 1024X768 or higher..
The reason why you cannot increase the resolution and the bit color to higher than 8 or 16 bit color is because the incorrect video driver was installed.
Download and install the correct video driver for your model laptop.
You can download the device drivers from ASUS WEB site.Select your model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select driversthat matches your Windows operating system. Please click on this link to theirWEB support site : - http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

My computer begins to load windows, then after the screen with the windows logo and bars goes away my screen goes black.


Nine times out of ten if that's when your display stops, it's simply because your display settings are set to something that your monitor can't handle. Depending on what it's not supporting, some monitors respond by going black ... others just go "crazy" displaying unintelligible gibberish.
If that's the problem, it's fairly easy to fix.
First things first ... let's get you a bootable system.
Boot in safe mode - press F8 when the Windows loader presents you with the 30 second list of choices, and then select "Safe Mode" as your boot option.
Right click on the desktop and click Properties, and then on the Settings tab.
Now click and drag the Screen Resolution slider to the far left ... you want the smallest settings that your screen will support. Typically that'll be 640x480, or 800x600.
Also change the Color Quality dropdown to 256 colors, or whatever is lowest. (You probably don't need to go as low as 16 colors, if that's presented as an option.)
Now, click on the Advanced button, and then the Monitor tab of the resulting dialog box. Change the Screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz.
OK your way back out, and reboot your machine. If these setting were the source of the problem, it should now be able to boot normally. You may not like the screen settings, but at least you now have a place to start.
"Start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor."
If the display is still blank or gibberish, the my recommendation is to once again boot into Safe Mode, possibly Safe Mode with networking, and update your video display drivers. It's likely that they are incorrect or otherwise broken. Now start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor.
I tend to start with the screen resolution. Once again right click on the desktop and click Properties, then Settings, and then drag the Screen Resolution slider a notch or two to the right to increase your display resolution. Now click Apply. It should change the resolution and display a small message box asking if you want to accept this setting. If you don't respond within some time, it assumes you can't see it, so it resets to the previous setting. If the screen goes blank or you can't read it, wait at least one minute before doing anything. The problem may resolve itself, and you'll be able to say "well, that resolution doesn't work", and move on to try another.
If, after a full minute or more the screen remains blank or unreadable, you'll have to reboot into safe mode, as we did originally, to restore your setting. (Why might this happen? Windows "remembers" and doesn't bother to ask you if you reset to something that you previously said worked. If you mistakenly said "this works" when it didn't ... perhaps by random keyboarding while the display was blank ... well, that could be how we got here in the first place.) You can repeat this process of trial and error for each of the screen resolution, the color depth and the screen refresh rate. (For CRT displays, you really do want the refresh rate to be as high as your monitor supports.)

The display is incorrect


well from a quick google i can see the original manufacturer was Panasonic. As a general rule of thumb , if you cannot get higher than 16 colours and 800x600 resolution then thats probably all the graphics on the laptop can support. Looking at the specification , its obvious that the laptop is quite old and back when windows 98se was the mainly used OS and Pentium 3's under 1 ghz were common , 800x600 with 16 colours was probably the best available.

As windows update wont be any use to due no more support for win98 , right clicfk My Computer , go the properties and click the Device Manager tab. Under Display Adapters , you will see the adapter for your laptop. You can try right clicking it , clickuing update driver , letting it search and see if it finds one. This may solve your problem as sometimes driver updates allow for more resolutions.

Please post what device manager ssays under Display Adapters if you get stuck and il try and find an updated driver.

Screen colors


possibly screen color depth is set to 16 colors. - open control panel display - settings tab, slide the color depth to 16 bit. - change resolution to 800 x 600 for now. reboot and see if that does the trick, then readjust settings to your tastes.
