Dont change the screen resolution by going to computer resolution screen or the settings screen.
Open the NVIDIA graphics utility or display utility and change the settings from there as all the controls regarding the screen resolution and the color effect are now handled by NVIDIA...

When i power my moniter it shuts itself off in ten second by itself


Either your computer is sending a signal it doesn't support (too high resolution or refresh rate), or the monitor has power issues. Try starting the computer and going into the setup screen. If the monitor stays on, it's a resolution/refresh issue in the OS. If it doesn't stay on, it'll be cheaper to get a new monitor.

I have a desktop PC with HP v72 monitor and a GeForce FX 5200 video card installed. I uninstalled Windows XP and installed Ubuntu Server 11.04. The problem is that after the initial boot screen my monitor...


why run server, , sure you actually want a server.. sure.
Linux, run the newest Ubuntu on new pc
or older on older pc, ive no idea at all what PC you have.
v72 old CRT , glass tube monitor a RELIC in today world.
why post OS questions lacking what HP computer you have of 1000s.
XP gone great idea, for sure....
OK F8 is Microsoft , for get them it not MS now, not at ALL.
in the Linux world its failing to find the correct minimum or
best resolution to match your old monitor
the monitor is year 2000.
the best resolution is 1024 x 768

you are using new linux, and it does not use that old old CRT
weak as a cat resolution,
you can use and older linux, or newer monitor
or change the resolution
using
if seen and done this 100s of time, endless,
btw your OLD CRT monitor does not use proper PnP plug and play
data comms.. its too old, why mess with CRTs in 2017?
walmart sells a $45 LCD , use that? and avoid darkages resolutions.


the way to do this is to run in command line mode
and change the config file, called, xorg.conf

https://techblissonline.com/ubuntu-804-set-default-resolution-1024-768-virtual-pc-2007/


there are other ways,
recompile the kernal to default to this reso? relic
or there is hot key at boot, read the manual on ubuntu
and change to lowest poor resolution
then run setups with a working desktop.

ask on a Ubuntu forum, it can vary by year, OS made and version
and what what desktop running of the many.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution#Resetting_an_out-of-range_resolution



keep in mind
your CRT is not supported now.
you must force it.

one more for V12, dropped the startup manager, wow....
best is to ask only for your version and choices at install time.
grub , KDE? what?

Display resolution decreases unexpectedly. I find that the resolution is set at max but display settings show multiple monitors. I am only using the laptop display. I can temporarily resolve this issue by...


old compaq Notebooks.
running what OS what windows is there, of the 14 made.
my guess XP on up.? the hp data sheet says VISTA.
is it still running VISTA? still have the HP recovery disks>?

all modern screens and GPU chips have many possible resolutions.
this great benefit allows you to run old APPS that only do low (poor)
resolutions, (i can name some if you ask, some old video players)
the only problem using old laptops is the lack of support after 10 long years, and HP ends that. I';d give on finding HP drivers. this old.
and that Vista support ended this year, HP and at MS.
V1000 to V6000 are now retired. see here for proof
THAT being said, i plunder on and try to find the correct drivers
first I attempt to ID that GPU chip, (i have scanner to make that easy but can do that here can I) so i must google to find the data sheets.
step one is what OS, you never said so the job expands or fails.
Nvidia. GeForce Go 6150 , VISTA
the makers (nvidia )web page is tricky,
ill teach you how to use it , and it is there. link below.
drivers, top box click Gforce
box 2 pick Gforce 6 series
box 3 pick your unstated OS/
box 4 you lang.
box 6 all.
click search and then pick newest WHQL driver.
DL it. run it , use it.
bingo?

Obviously the graphics card is not capable of supporting the resolution you have set so it go's blank.
Although you can set the resolution via the computer the system will not change it back when you save that setting even though you see nothing, the computer doesn’t know you can’t see anything.
You need to go into the monitors menu (a button on the monitor front panel) and set it back to a supported resolution or default.
Start at 600x800.
Once you see an image on the monitor right click the desktop go to properties then settings and slid the screen resolution bar to the right to a resolution that suits you don’t go to high or you will get the same problem.
1024x768 would probably suit you.
Hope this helps.

Need driver for xp


There are no drivers needed for Windows XP, the default monitor driver will work fine.You may need to update your video card drivers if you are unable to use the recommended resolution.

Cannot get 1366 x 768 pixels resolution in win xp or linux mint


Have you made sure your video driver is up to date? XP also has SP3 now too so you should download and install it.

Screen resolution changes after rebooting computer


i) my wiser advice would be, just dont mess with this bug try, reload your OS or format your Windows Xp    or reload you OS Freshlly...

   before doing this try to run antivirus, spyware scan by using an good security system(such as bit defender from microsoft, norton, avg.....) fully on your complete system(it may longer time but it is safe)

 i'm sure that this problem will not persist after this try to purchase an antivirus program to avoid any problems of such type....


Thanking you

Bought new aoc monitor and plugged in and all I get a floating screen safer saying "input not support".


Your display resolution is set to something outside the range your AOC supports.

Start Windows in VGA mode (pick that option from the startup menu you get when you press F8 after the manufacturer's logo comes when you turn the computer on). Then set the display mode to 16-bit color and 800X600 resolution. This will allow Windows to start up next time with settings just about every monitor can handle.

Once WIndows is up and running, make sure you change your display settings to something the monitor can handle. Specs are in the manual or on the manufacturer's website, but resolution of 1024X768 should be another safe choice. You should also think about installing any driver software supplied with the monitor.
