Question about Microsoft HannsG HU171D 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Video Problems When I start my computer up or exit anything full screen I get an "adjusting" displayed. My current resolution is set to 1280x960 on a HannsG 17" wide screen. Just recently after exiting StarCraft: BroodWar my resolution was stretched too much to the right. Now when I load up any game is says adjusting and the picture is always off. Im running XP and videocard is nvidia geforce 8600 GT. Im not very good with all the technical stuff involved in fixing this. If you need more info please let me know.

Hello!

Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.

May this help, best regards, melnavz

Laptop screen resolution problem and solution


Laptop Screen Resolution Problems and solution
By hamack4real, fixya Contributor I want to do this! What's This? jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

Laptop screen resolution problems can vary for a variety of reasons. The most common types of problems generally involve some sort of hardware or software issue that causes the display to not work correctly. Correcting a laptop screen resolution problem can be done by making changes to hardware or software settings used by the computer.

    Symptoms
  1. There can be many symptoms to a display problem. Symptoms can include a screen that appears dim or one that is totally black. Other symptoms include odd colors or blotches that appear on the display as well as oversized icons on the desktop. Symptoms can also include icons that are the wrong size on the desktop.
  2. Causes
  3. There can be many causes that can result in different issues affecting the display. Common causes include damage or loose parts. Damage can result when the laptop is dropped or has something fall on top if it. Hinges that are loose are going to cause a problem because the display will not stay in an upright position. Other causes include a bad video driver or an improperly set resolution.
  4. Diagnose
  5. A screen resolution problem will need to be diagnosed to determine what actions to take to resolve the problem. Check the laptop for any loose or broken parts that might need to be repaired. Once that is done, run a test of the video display. Use the video display troubleshooter for Windows XP systems, the help and how-to for Windows Vista systems and the troubleshooting guide for Apple computers.
  6. Solutions
  7. Changing the resolution of the display can be done to fix some types of screen resolution problems. Changing the resolution can fix display problems with some programs as well as websites that have embedded video. Refer to the laptop manual for instructions to access the display settings to change the resolution setting. Updating the video driver might also help to resolve some known issues by the vendor.
  8. Brightness
  9. A dim screen can be corrected by adjusting the brightness of the display. Adjusting the brightness can be done on the keyboard as well as from the display properties. Press the FN key on the keyboard and use the right arrow key to increase the brightness of the display. The brightness settings can also be found as an option in the display settings. Keep in mind a laptop will dim the screen to conserve battery

Crt monitor height are coming very small in size picture wat probelm


Did you set ur resolution screen setting higher than 1024 in ur computer panel resosulion setting?Yes than that is ur problems right there.CRT monitors modes are based on old technologies ,CRT monitors can't go up more than 1024 resolution setting.Setting resolution more than 1024 resolution for CRT models monitors will have thesse causes.The screen resolution on the screen will shrink and get smaller or will not have video resolution on the CRT monitors screens at all.Only LCD or LED monitors models can support and go higher than 1024 resolution setting has none of these causes.Time to upgrade for a new monitors technologies like LCD or LED monitors models.

I want to run a software which requires a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 but my Samsung SyncMaster 740nw supports up to 1280 x 700 screen resolution. Is there anything that I can do? Please guide.


Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution in Control Panel - Display - Settings and moving the slider on Screen resolution?
Normally a monitor such as Samsung LCD would be able to display a higher resolution.
If you cannot adjust the Screen resolution in Display - Settings then it may be that the correct video driver was not installed or is corrupted.
To check if the video diver is OK, go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager and click on Display adapter. Check that your display adapter is OK and working. If you see a yellow ? against the video adapter or a standard VGA adapter was installed then you need to re-install the video driver for your model graphics card.

Computer monitor out of range is being flashed on screen


Monitor is not recognizing the resolution settings that are currently set on the computer.
It is probably sett too high.
You will have to lower the computer resolution.
If it is a laptop, you should be able to do this using the laptops screen.
If it is a desktop computer, you either have to use a different screen to reset the resolution.
or
Sometimes restarting the computer while the screen is on will reset the video.
If that doesn't work, try starting the computer in safe mode by tapping the F8 key while it is being started. This will keep the resolution low enough to see it on the monitor and you can adjust the resolution there in the display properties

LG LCD Monitor won't exit Power Saving Mode


Does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your LG monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PCs video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

My newer flat screen monitor went black but works fine when hooked up to another computer and I have an older monitor that I hooked up and the older one works fine...??


That sounds like a display/resolution setting problem on your PC. I doubt there is anything actually wrong with the PC or the monitor, since both work with different combinations, so its most likely just a setting.

Some monitors don't display anything when they get a signal/resolution that is not compatible with their displays. I would try changing the display settings on your computer with your old monitor, then switch monitors and see if your newer monitor works.

Here's how to adjust the display resolution:
If in XP, right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust/lower the resolution. If in Vista/Win7 right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there.

My laptop monitor is stuck in full screen mode after a game malfunctioned and the computer shut down. I did a system restore but it didn't change. Operating system - Vista.


Firstly, uninstall the game. then reboot the PC in safe mode. Right click on the desk top and select properties. Then select settings. From here give new settings to your monitor. If this does not wirk then Control Panel->System->HardWare->Deivce Manager. Select Display Adapters. Uninstall it and reinstall.

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
