Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Thank you for your suggestions

I did as you suggested and updated the graphics card driver. This did not help. I also tried lower resolution. The problem is that there are big splotches and lines of purple/red pixels (even when i lower the resolution), and these areas of pixilation change according to whatever appears on the screen, so for example, if there is a photo of mountains, there will be pixilation on parts of the mountains, and if i am viewing some graphics, there will be pixilation along the graphics. It's not just a couple of bad pixels. It began this evening a little after downloading a photo from a disc that my sister had send me, so i assumed it's a virus, but a complete virus scan didn't turn up anything. Any other suggestions will be most welcome. Many thanks.

Hi Shaidan ... try going into the system settings and advanced then visual effects under performance ... put it on custom then disable (remove checks) beside everything ... also many graphic cards have fans on the graphic processor these days ... you can take a look at that and make sure it is clean and performing ok ...

Not getting full resolution of 1920 x 1080 on acer monitor p226hq - installed on HCL desktop - pentium 4 processor - 256 x 512 RAM suggestions


The 64MB graphics card installed was created at a time where that resolution was only dreamed of. The graphics card is not able to support the modern resoultion of 1920X1080.

One option is to install a newer graphics card or install the latest software called drivers, they may help you achieve HD resolution. Drivers can be found on the manufactures website. Download them and install them on your computer.

Take care!

Hello, My winXP cannot recognize monitor Asus VH232T - windows suggests 4:3 resolutions only. Can you please advise where can I download the monitor driver? Video card is ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Thank...


Hi

Monitors do not generally require drivers. The .inf drivers to run almost all monitors are already in Windows.

The problem here is in the settings of the graphics card.

Many users aim for Maximum resolution, when what they should aim for is Optimum resolution, balancing the RAM, CPU, GPU, GRAM and Monitor''s resources in the most efficient and effective way.

Keeping the relevant software updated also has an impact on graphics performance (grpahics Card Drivers, Java, Flash, DirectX, Video Codecs, etc.)

If the video resolution is set too high (or too low), beyond the graphics capabilities of the monitor, on reboot, the monitor will be unable to resolve the image.

The simplest solution would be to use a different monitor to adjust the video resolution, shut down then test the preferred monitor again.

Right Click on desktop>Properties>Settings then use the slider scale to adjust resolution, then Apply, Yes on the optimum setting, them OK.

Find the optimum setting in XP with your graphics card for this monitor and you should be fine.

Hope this helps.

I would suggest you lower your resolution settings from your video card to your monitor. Possibly they are to high for your monitor to handle. Go into control panel to change your settings at a lower rate and see if it runs any better.

I hope this helps you out if so please leave me some feed back.

The screen display looks odd and undersized, and the icons are smaller than usual


Hello,
Nvidia 9300GS is a well-performing graphics card. Such display resolution problems should not occur. To resolve issues of faulty display, download and install the latest driver of your Graphics Card. Go to Nvidia's official website and get your device's WHQL Version of driver, don't go for the Beta drivers.
Thank You.

I have a dell 280GX and would like to increase it's graphics. I installed fsx deluxe but get out of range from monitor. I have done all the basics (settings advance and refresh). What is the suggestion?


This is a graphics card issue. I suggest you try say an Nvidia GTS250 card. If you are pushing up the resolution too high you will get this mesage. Short-term fix, try lowering the resolution in the settings of your current graphics card. This should help.

My laptop doasn't regonize my tv when i connect it


I would suggest that you should reduce the screen resolution of your laptop to something like 800 by 600 pixels, then try to reconnect it.
This is because there are some TVs that can not display the resolution provided by some high-end laptop graphics card, and I have actually experienced a case like this before.
So just try and check some lower resolutions on the laptop to connect it to your TV.
Hope it helps you out.
Goodluck!

Resolution problem on LCD


Are you saying that when you try to change the resolution it does not display 1440x900?

I would suggest downloading the drivers for the monitor as well as the latest drivers for your graphics card.

I'm guessing you used a different graphics card before now - use ATI's driver uninstaller to remove the current driver and any other drivers before installing the latest driver from ATI. They have a program made to remove their drivers that you're supposed to use every time you change cards or update a driver. Shouldn't be hard to find.

If that doesn't work, come back and we'll try the next thing.

Hi Helpmonkey


It could be the monitor but from you earlier descriptions it seemed to be related to the graphics card ... can you test your monitor on another system ... also you can reset the monitor settings using the controls on the monitor its self... the suggestion about the graphics card fan requires you to look inside the computer system ...

Resolution Problem


you need to be installing a graphics driver for your onboard graphics or your graphics card, the monitor driver won't change the resolution, when you installed XP there wouldn't have been a graphics driver installed, only a VGA driver to enable a 800 x 600 resolution.

 

Find out your card manufacturer or your onboard graphics or use the cd that came with the motherboard or card.
