Question about Apple eMac G4 M9425LL/A Desktop

EMac screen resolution size is only one choice 800x600

I have an eMac that is behaving badly. The most obvious sign is the screen is only the size of a postcard. I cannot even click on any button that are out of sight on this. Therefore I can't download any updates that might repair this. When I go to monitors in the System Prefs...the only monitor size choice is the one selected. 800x600. It used to have all the choices my working eMacs have. Any suggestions or should I just throw it away? Thanks.

    A few thigns to try. First off, it's always best to run an LCD in its native resolution. On the G5 iMac, that's 1440x900 for the 17" and 1680x1050 for the 20" version. The next thing to do is go to System Preferences, select the Appearance item, and then choose a font smoothing style at the bottom. I recommend Medium.

    Other than these two things, there's not really much you can do to improve on-screen font display

How to make the picture from laptop to projector the right size.


I would suggest it's probably a screen resolution an older laptop VGA output was probably 800x600. The projector will also have a recommended and maximum resolution. The newer laptop will have a much higher resolution. You will need to adjust the laptop's video resolution to the optimum projector resolution

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Previous monitor 13 1/2" wide. I want to make


Check on the monitor for an auto button or function, this should reset the screen resolution to match the pc output, what resolution are you running at? 640x480 or 800x600 would be my choice for that size screen but try some of the higher resolutions in conjuction with the auto button to see if you can get the screen size you desire.

The screen display looks odd and undersized, and the icons are smaller than usual


Hello,
Nvidia 9300GS is a well-performing graphics card. Such display resolution problems should not occur. To resolve issues of faulty display, download and install the latest driver of your Graphics Card. Go to Nvidia's official website and get your device's WHQL Version of driver, don't go for the Beta drivers.
Thank You.

1. Had some problems recently with my lap top.


The action you took to fix your computer by resetting it has reset the screen resolution to what sounds like the XP default.

To adjust the screen resolution follow this set of instructions-

First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

Font sizes not accurate


I think your screen resolution had changed. For that right click on your desktop and select properties and select settings tab.

There Goto Screen Resolution and select the screen resolution to 800x600 or 1024by768.

Hope this will help

We can't get our screen resolution back to what it was (1024x768) it changed when a game being played ended. It runs on 800x600 at the moment and everything is too big.


First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box (see left), if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

Without having the unit in front of me, it sounds like the video component is bad. However, you could have a bad battery in the

Sharper Imaage


This is an SVGA projector with a max resolution of 800X600. Even though it can accept higher resolution signals, they are scaled down to 800X600 which causes degradation and artifacting of the displayed image. Obviously setting your computer's resolution to 800X600 will result in the best image the projector is capable of. Standard definition video (480i, 480p, S-Video or composite) signals should also display very well. High definition signals like 720p and 1080i get scaled down to 800X600 with the same issues as a higher resolution computer signal.

One thing that can have a dramatic impact on the quality of your display if you are using Windows XP or Vista is tuning your ClearType settings here:
