Question about Computers & Internet

Hi.I have a 17 inch lcd DGM monitor and would like to increase the screen resolution from the standard 1024X768 to 1280X1024 as the monitor display is not crisp.However when I go to the monitor settings on the Dell Vostro computer that it is linked with the slider control is set in the highest position already and cannot be adjusted upwards.The Dell has an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro so I don't think it can be that.I tried to download a new driver from DGM.The monitor that I have is an L-1721 and the closest on their site was an L-1731.Anyhow I could not access a driver only user manuals.As this monitor could be over 5-6years old I wonder if the screen resolution can be increased ? Thank you.All the best,David.

Well, David, I would think possibly the problem is that, as you suspect, the monitor is not capable of rendering the higher display settings. If you can set your software to the higher settings, that doesn't mean the software is not functioning properly, and I'm thinking the user manual for the monitor will explain the monitor settings, if any are manual, and you will have to address the monitor's menu through any buttons on the monitor. Another thing you can try to obtain a crisper display, is a setting I found one time is the "high contrast" setting (go to the Accessories Folder and Ease of Access Center and set up High Contrast. It helps some people, but may not really solve your resolution problem. Your manual should be close enough, but try to see if it has provisions to increase it's resolution or temperature settings. In the "older days", there was a slightly different resolution setting that had only one parameter, the "color temperature" setting, if I remember correctly. That was the way they changed the sensitivity of the tube. You can select different settings, and observe the effect, and hopefully improve your display. Good luck!

Drivers for monitors are usually only colour matching profiles

You didn't say what operating system you have so its difficult to give specific advise.

However if it is windows based you should be able to right click on a blank area of screen and call up the properties etc for your display.

I would be looking at the ADVANCED tab OR one that may be specific to your ATI card.

Double check is you also have the ATI programs installed in your programs list as that too is another way to get to the card specific functions.

the native resolution for most LCD is 1680 x 1050 so watch out and try not to go above that as you may end up with your display telling you that it's "out of range"

You may also want to visit the ATI site and get the latest drivers and applications for your card from there FIRST.

Some earlier LCD's did have resolution restrictions BTW

If you can try the display on another computer to verify the quality of display and if it is fuzzy or blury on that coputer too you may want to think about a new one.

Those are youre starting points

Can I increase the screen resolution on my EV700B monitor higher than 800x600? How?


Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Screen Resolution move the slider to the right to increase the screen resolution.
If you cannot increase the screen resolution, it means the correct video driver was not installed generic VGA driver was installed.
In this case install the video driver for your graphics card and change the screen resolution.

I install window 7 but my benq 15" lcd monitar's screen rosuation not competible. pls guide me how i increase the rosulation thnx


As for your 15" LCD BENQ Monitor, "1024 x 768" pixels is the Maximum Resolution
If you increase your screen higher than the Maximum resolution you get a black screen! because the monitor cannot support the resolution higher than "1024x768" pixels.

How to change your screen resolution Win 7-> Link

FYI
Here are typical resolutions for some popular screen sizes
19-inch screen (standard ratio): 1280 x 1024 pixels
20-inch screen (standard ratio): 1600 x 1200 pixels
22-inch screen (widescreen): 1680 x 1050 pixels
24-inch screen (widescreen): 1900 x 1200 pixels

Hope it helps.

We have just bought an LG 23 inch monitor. Everything okay on it except for the proper resolution. The monitor no. is W2343T. I have put the resolution of 1920 x 1080 and frequency of 60 hertz on it as...


I think the problem is going to be in the Windows software, and not the settings on the monitor. Not sure which type of computer or which Windows you're running, but get into control panel, monitor settings and see what you can do. Windows help and support might be able to assist you.
Here's an excerpt from ncix.com:
Cons Clumsy front panel controls
Vertically, picture is no larger than my old 17"
May require video card upgrade for higher resolutions
Front panel illuminated power button is distracting
Summary Overall, I really like this monitor. But don't expect a size increase vertically over a 17" display. I actually lost half an inch. I prefer a 16:10 aspect ratio so I'm not actually using the full wide available. If you're like me you can save some change and go for the 2243.

I updated my video driver and now on 17 inch monitor display is coming instead of full monitor display how can i make the screen back to full 19inch display


Go to the Control Panel and click on Display, the the Settings tab. then change the screen resolution to 1024 X 768 or higher resolution.
The higher the resolution the smaller the Icons will be but you will be able to display more information on the screen.

I want to install the monitor Hyundai L70N but I don't have any cd


You usually do not need a disk to install a monitor, most of them are plug and play capable. If your getting an image that is blurry and out of perspective you may need to change your display size " standard 17 inch is 1280x1024 " If your on XP you can right click on the empty desktop and go to properties, Under the settings tab you will find options for screen resolutions. If your on Vista or 7 you right click on empty desktop space and go go screen resolution, There again you will easily find your settings for your screen resolution. Click apply and then click OK. If your still encountering problems such as no image at all you may have a problem with the monitor.

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.

NEC multiSync 1700V as external monitor for Notebook Toshiba U205, Operating System Window Vista Home Premium. It displays only part (80%) of the picture compared with notebook's monitor.


Hi, if the 17 inch lcd screen is not a widescreen then the problem with the screen is possibly nothing more than the aspect ratio or resolution, which ever way you wanna look at it. All laptops have a widescreen type of ratio, so you will have to be either willing to change the resolution when you switch screens or setup different profiles, which you should beable to do through control panel, appearance and then personalization, you will then have access to it.

Settings for dcl lcd monitor


Hi,
Your laptop resolution is greater than the external monitor can handle. From your laptop, try changing the screen resolution to 800x600, if it works, up the ante to 1024x768. You can bring it up again until you find a comfortable screen resolution. You will eventually stop to a point when your external monitor displays about 80% of the laptop screen. That is, back to your original problem. But you get the idea. Cheers!
