Hello clsmall

The instructions below are based on the assumption that yours is a Windows-based operating system (not Microsoft Vista, though). If your operating system is Microsoft Windows Vista or a non-Microsoft or or non-Windows-based operating system, please, let us know and we'll provide you w/ the appropriate instructions for changing your resolution.

(01) Right-click anywhere on the desktop (the screen you see after you have logged into Windows).

(02) Select PROPERTIES at the bottom of the context menu

(03) Click on the SETTINGS tab.

(04) In the mid to lower left you will see a section called "Screen Resolution"

(05) Move the slide arrow to the resolution you'd like to try or change to.

(06) Click the APPLY button in the lower right.

(07) Choose the NO button if you don't wish to keep the new resolution and YES if you do.

(08) Repeat this process (steps (5) thru (7)) until you've decided on a new display resolution.

(08) Once you've decided on which resolution you'd like to keep, click the OK button

That should do the trick.

Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc. on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

I can`t change my setting before a game please tell me how


I presume you are referring to changing your screen resolution before a game. As games typically automatically change the screen resolution, I am a bit surprised by the query. On XP systems, you can right click on the desktop, select properties, select the settings tab, and you can alter the resolution in the drop down box. On Windows 7, click the start button, then control panel, then appearance and Personalization. Select from the drop down list the resolution you want and click apply. In Windows 8, you pretty much follow Windows 7 procedures but rather than using a drop down to pick a resolution, you use the sliding bar, then click apply. You might want to write down what the original resolution was set at before making any changes.

Perhaps there is a a way to change resolution in the "setup" or settings menu of the game.

After being on a few minutes, the text becomes very blurry I lowered the resolution, which makes the text bigger and helps some. There is an internal adjustment, but I don't know where??


Hi hamptonwhh,

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges. Please follow the steps below on how to adjust your screen resolution.

Windows XP
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.

3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.

4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.

Windows Vista/7
1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

Notes : When you change the screen resolution, it affects all users who log on to the computer.

When you set your monitor to a screen resolution that it won't support, the screen will go black for a few seconds while the monitor reverts back to the original resolution.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2.
On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.

If you cannot set it any higher than 1024x768 and you have already installed the video drivers, that is as high as it can go for your hardware.
