Try going into your display properties, and adjusting from there. Right click anywhere on your start screen, and select properties. Then select display properties. Hope this is helpful

New Acer 5532 laptop; v.wide screen but not v.deep. Currently, large toolbar icons take up some 25% of the screen unecessarily - how to reduce their size down ?


Depends on which Windows version you have, unstated.

Right click on screen anywhere except other icons, go to "properties" and adjust screen res to max and also check under appearance that icons are "normal"

hi,
This is normally due to a frequency or resolution incompatibility. Turn on your desktop computer, then change the screen resolution to 800x600 or 1024x768. Save the settings. Reboot to check that it is indeed saved.
Once you boot up on your TV, it should display fine. Gradually increase the resolution and colors to the max your TV can handle.

I have a samsung syncmaster 915a which resets to max resolution. Can I change their Motherboard equivelint??


Resolution is determined by the display settings, up to the limits of the hardware. In windows, if you right-click on your desktop and select settings, click the "display settings" tab on the resulting window, you can select lower resolutions (icons etc. get bigger, less stuff fits on screen) if you desire. Be sure to click "apply"

No icons or tool bar on desktop at startup


In your desktop, Right click your mouse and properties will show and look for show desktop option. And then move your mouse to the bottom of your computer screen, if toolbar will show, then your toolbar is set to automatic hide. Change the settings in your Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and change there the settings, uncheck the auto hide task bar.

Vostro 1510 vga to tv vga desktop picture no icons on tv


It's likely that your OS, whatever that is, wrongly identified the display size of your TV and it set the screen resolution too high, and you may even have what is known as a "virtual" desktop that is bigger than the physical screen size.
To ensure this is the case, move the mouse pointer towards the edges of the TV screen and see if your desktop scrolls along, and your icons and other stuff shows up. If this is the case, then adjust your resolution to a smaller size, say, from 1920 x 1200 to 1024 x 768, click Apply and then Ok.
That should fix the problem temporarily, but there's no guarantee that it will not do the same thing next time you connect your pc to your TV set. I have experienced the same thing with my laptop and HDTV, and I have had to repeat the process again.
Good luck!

Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi


try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.
