First try to reinstall the driver. If you are not sure how just go to device manager and delete both the monitor and the display adapter then reboot your system and you will be prompted as to what to do...assuming it does not automtically find the driver (plug and play). If that does not work record what happened and post back. I will get a message. Tango

Porque não consigo mudar minha resolução de tela?


Translation: Why can't I change my screen resolution? (English).

You video adaptor limits the resolution you can choose. If you right click on the desktop you can pick the graphic settings you want and it will give you 15 seconds to see what it looks like, before it restores to what it is already.

Tip

Flickering LCD/CRT monitor screen or unstable image fix


If the screen flickers, make sure the display settings in Windows match the native resolution and refresh rate for the monitor. You can find the native resolution of a flat panel display in the specifications, in the printed material or on the box that came with the monitor. Some common native resolutions are 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1920 x 1080, and 1680 x 1050. To find out more about optimal screen resolutions see my tip on resolutions here.

The most common refresh rate for LCD monitors is 60 Hz. This normally cannot be changed for flat panel displays using Plug and Play settings. However, if you are using special video software to increase or decrease the refresh rate, change the refresh rate to match the default refresh rate specification of the monitor. To find out more about refresh rates see my tip here.

STEP 1
To change the screen resolution and refresh rate settings in Windows, do the following:
- In Windows XP
See my tip on setting up the optimum screen resolution for Windows XP here.

- In Windows Vista
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel .
2. Find the Appearance and Personalization area, and click Adjust Screen Resolution .
3. Move the slider bar until the screen resolution matches the native resolution.
4. Click Advanced settings, and then click the Monitor tab.
5. Select the Screen refresh rate that matches the default rate for your monitor (if it is not already selected).
6. Click OK, and then click OK again.

If you cannot select the native resolution or the native resolution is unavailable, continue to the next step to update the drivers for the graphics adapter on the computer.

You can get the latest updated video drivers from the video hardware manufacturer's Web site. Here is a list showing some of the video hardware websites:

Check for NVIDIA video driver updates at NVIDIA Home Page.
Check for ATI/AMD video driver updates at ATI Home Page.
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads.

After updating the video drivers, go back to Step 1 and try to change the screen resolution again.
Note: If you cannot select the native resolution after updating the video drivers, the graphics adapter in the computer might not support that resolution and may need to be upgraded.

If after changing the resolution and updating video drivers the flickering persists then check the video cable connections. Unplug the cable and inspect the cable for damage. If the cable is damaged, replace it with a new cable. Try to use cables less than 3 meters (10 feet) long.

Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields so have a look at the environment around the monitor. Speakers, florescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios, and any other electrical device can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the monitor to see if they is producing a field that causes the flicker.

If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.

To see if the video coming from the computer is causing the problem, temporarily connect the monitor to another computer. If the flicker is gone when the monitor is connected to another computer, the graphics adapter hardware on the first computer might need to be upgraded to use the monitor.

If however the flicker remains then the problem lies within the harware of the monitor itself and is not a software problem. If you have bought this monitor fairly recently then I suggest you take it back to the place of purchace and have them test it. Some monitors carry 3 year warranty support so if you bought it within the warranty period specified by the reseller I suggest you see if you can get refunded or have them swop it out.

Increase resolution


The poster resolution and the computer resolution are completely separate. The cpt resolution controls the monitor screen display. The poster resolution refers to the camera pixels used in recording the original picture - it cannot be increased. The poster program is measuring the resolution of the file picture only and indicating that t will produce a blurry poster.

My site pages have become to large to fit on my screen.


This most likely one of two things.
Either you have changed your screen resolution (can be adjusted by right clicking on desktop and changing settings - exact options vary depending on OS)
Or you may have accidentally activated your browsers zoom function try pressing "ctrl" and "-" to zoom out or "ctrl" and "+" to zoom in.

Cannot change disply resolution


Hi Danny - Right click anywhere in the middle of your desktop, just not on any icons. Click on properties. Click on the settings tab. On the lower left is a slide where you can change your resolution. Say yes to accept without restarting. If you don't like it you just do the same thing to change it back. If this solved your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks and have a nice day.
