SCREEN RESOLUTION CHANGES IT SELF

I am unable to set the screen resolution as it is not appearing in display properties, it goes to 1280x768 instead of 1440x900, i did install the drivers and restart the pc, run it in safe mode then run in normal mode but still unable to solve the issue. it happens time to time and some time it fixes automatically.

    I don't have a solution, but I have the exact same problem, but my monitor is a Viewsonic VA1916W. It fixes itself and then the same problem returns. Been trhough all the so called cures for the problem, but no results. Would like to know if anyone has come up with a solution for this problem. Could it be the monitor is defective?

    I have the same problem.

    I found an easy and effective solution: When the screen goes out of resolution, simply turn off the computer power surge protector, then reboot. Works every time

    What does not work is trying to get help from View Sonic. They dont write back and I cant get them on the phone. Sorry I bought View Sonic and will never do it again.

    I´d the same problem the resolution changes it self and then I don´t have the option to change it back to 1440x900. What it worked for me was to plug my old monitor start windows and shut it down. Then I plug again the viewsonic monitor and "magically" the resolution was available again. I don´t understand why this happens but it worked.

    i have a va1703wba and a laptop with 945 chipset.
    I am also a microsoft engineer and i cant get it work for me either.
    I have even edited the registry to force that resolution to appear but it still dissapears. It seems to happen only if i switch the screen off but leave it plugged into the laptop and then just close the lid of laptop making it "sleep"
    then "wake" the laptop without switching the screen on 1st.
    You can be rest assured i have tried every version of the 945 driver and nearly every generic driver that supports 1440x900. This is a Vista problem. It does not happen on my xp virtual environment but anyway. thanks for the cool space to vent a little.

    "I found an easy and effective solution: When the screen goes out of
    resolution, simply turn off the computer power surge protector, then
    reboot" this really worked for me....but this repeatedly will k--f hard drives and installation.....probably it has some thing to do with bios setting on our PC or some tiny memory chip on monitor it self.

How do i make the screen smaller


Make the resolution higher under the Display. Right Click on any open area on your desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

You can also get to the display by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When the Display Properties window opens select the Settings tab. Change the resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and the more things will appear on the screen.

The graphics are not normal,they are big.


First try changing the display resolution by going to display properties in control panel. Move the slider to the right. Hit apply.

If this doesn't help you out, it could be a display graphics driver problem. Try going to the support website for the laptop manufacturer and download the drivers for the display adapters.

I have knocked a button on my laptop the screen has gone small i can not make it bigger i have been into properties but dont know where to go next


Position your Mouse on your Desktop. Just on the background. Right click. Select Properties. Select the 'Settings' Tab. You can select the resolution of "800 x 600" for larger icons or if you want more desktop area move to the right. I am set to "1400 x900"

The other setting you should look for is the Color Quality. Generally this should be largest number. IE 32 bit.

I have samsung syncmaster 740nw how can i increase screen resolution to 1024x768?


you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.

Computer screen says imput not supported what do i do?


i believe at boot you should hold f8 for advanced booting options, and then select safe mode, which will start the computer in a lower resolution graphix. from there, set the resolution down on the display. right click on the desktop and select properties or personalize, then look for the display setings for screen resolution. its prolly set to 1680 x 1050, and needs to be set to something around 1280x768 or something: maybe its set to a different aspect ration or just plain different size.

Unable to have 1280x768 full screen with DVI cable


Use the menu button on the monitor itself to adjust for the screen size in DVI mode.

 

On your SVGA adapter, go to your display properties (right click on desktop) click ADVANCED and change the refresh rate to fix the first problem mentioned.
