Question about HP Compaq nc8430 Notebook

1 Answer

How do I get my nc8430 resolution up to 1680 x 1050?

I asked for a laptop that had a 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) or higher screen resolution. I ended up getting this one, but found that the resolution was only 1280 x 800 (WXGA), not WSXGA+. I looked up on a certain site, and found that someone had pushed up the screen resolution by installing Livna fglrx. I looked this up, but I think it's only available for Linux. I saw little or nothing to do with Windows XP Pro. I have the proper ATI adapter, I think it's the drivers that I'm missing. Does anyone know where to find these drivers? It would be greatly appreciated. :)

My Mac will not install the Digital camera Solution Disk says my screen resolution is insufficient...


This must be because you have a widescreen monitor or because you have set a screen resolution that's too low for anything.
Most programs ask for a screen resolution higher than 1024x768 (which they rarely actually need) to install.
So you can change yours to that value (or higher) for the installation and if it distorts your display, set it back to the original value later.
To see how to change your resolution, go to this site; http://www.ehow.com/how_2064940_change-display-resolution-mac-osxchange-display-resolution-mac-osx.html
After setting the resolution to 1024x768 or higher, run the installation and it should proceed with no problems.

Unable to pair samsung t729 blast with bluetooth on hp nc8430


Read the manual that came with your device. It should tell you in the manual what the default pin is. You can try 0000, or 9999, or 1111 just for the heck of it...it's usually something like that. (not sure on the number of digits for your device, but I think it would be 4)

Everything is too big on the screen when I get on the internet


Try selecting a much higher resolution from the menu
1650x 1200 should be ok for a 19" or 1260x760 or something within those parameters

Dell Inspiron 2200 maximum display resolution


The display limit is determined by the LCD design. IN this case, you have an XGA LCD resolution 1024 x 768 pixels. This is a hard wired resolution and can only be changed by exchanging the XGA LCD for a higher resolution one (SXGA or higher, likeky not an available option for an Inspitorn 2200)

Display Resolution


Make sure you have the correct driver loaded from the Fujitsu website. Additionally, try removing the Display Adapter from device manager and reboot. This will allow Windows to identify the "new" hardware and attempt to install. If asked, point Windows to the driver files from Fujitsu and that should fix you up :)

Hope this helps!

New LCD SCreen problem


I am no expert on this issue, but i am not sure you can install a SXGA resolution screen into a formally XGA laptop. Never tried that before. I don't believe that it will work CORRECTLY. As you have stated. Is there anyway you can send it back and get a XGA one instead and solve your problem? Keep me posted.. I am curious about this... THANK YOU ...GURU JAY

ThinkPad repair from hell


I've got one with the same problem. I've been through the model at Lenovo's site, and your best bet is to replace the lcd with what it came with. It's possible an sxga would plug in (there are always extra pins on the motherboard side), but probably wouldn't work. The cable is almost as much as the lcd. Good luck
