    You need to install drivers for video card to solve the resolution problem. regarding the blue screen you should reinstall windows. If you have factory recovery disk it will be an easy task, otherwise you need to download right driver for your video card and to find a windows setup disk and serial.

How do you get Windows 10 free update from Windows 8 to operate the screen saver?


How to customize Screensaver in Windows 10
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
There were times when computer monitors used to suffer from image burn-in issues caused by showing the same image for a long period of time and people used to install a screen saver to avoid the issue. The computer screens today no longer face the burn-in issues, but people still use the screen saver on their computer systems for fun's sake. Windows 10 comes with a six built-in screensavers. Let us see how you can customize screensavers in Windows 10.
Read: Are Screensavers necessary and still needed.
Screensaver Settings in Windows 10 You can get to your screen saver settings directly by typing 'Screen Saver' in the taskbar search box in the lower left corner of your system. Click on 'Change Screen Saver' and it will take you the Screen Saver settings right away where you can adjust the settings according to your own preferences.
Alternatively, right-click on your Windows 10 desktop, and select Personalize to open Personalization settings. Next click on Lock screen in the left pane.

Scroll down the Lock Screen settings and click on Screen Saver Settings. The following window will open. Here you can adjust the settings according to your preferences.

By default, Windows 10 offers the following six screensavers - 3D Text, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos and Ribbons - nothing new here. Select the screensaver from the drop-down menu and change its defaults Settings, if any are available.
For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

The Photos screensaver lets you display your favorite photos as a screen saver.

Once you are done, click on save and exit.

Create Screen Saver Settings Shortcut

If you access the screensaver settings frequently, you can create its desktop shortcut as follows: However, it is easy to change the settings but if you change your screen saver often, it would be better to create a Screen Saver Settings shortcut on your desktop.
To create the shortcut, you have to right-click on your desktop and click on New > Shortcut.
Type control desk.cpl,,@screensaver in the location space in the wizard.
Click Next and give a name to your shortcut. Click Next and you are done. Give it a suitable icon of your choice.
Use this shortcut to change or adjust your screen saver settings whenever you want, quickly.
You can also create a shortcut to launch or change Screensaver state for a specific screensaver.

Floating gray box that says input not supported


When do you see the grey box? When you are playing a game? If so, try changing the resolution on your screen through the Control Panel...personalization...the resolution scale. You may need a lower resolution in order for the game to be played. I used to get a box that said "signal out of range". It wouldn't go away until I lowered the resolution in order to play that particular game. You can always change it back to your original resolution. Did you have a message in the grey box.

How do i get my computer out of the resolution mode?


Apparently the monitor screen resolution setting is not correct. Screen resolution stays up until it is corrected.

Either the setting is off in Windows, or you have been changing the monitor settings, with the monitor.

WinXP:

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Go down to where it states Screen Resolution.

What is the pixel setting? For example mine states 1600 x 900 pixels.
I am running dual monitors, and this is the correct screen resolution for the Primary monitor.

If it wasn't I would Left-click on the Slider, hold the left mouse button down, and slide the Slider to the correct native resolution.

(Under Screen Resolution is a line. To the left it states - Less
To the right of the line it states - More
The Slider is the rectangular down arrow on the line )

ALSO;
Under the Color quality heading, make sure in the box under it, that it states - Highest (32 bit)
IF not, left-click on the blue down arrow to the right.
Then left-click right on - Highest (32 bit)

How to know what is the native resolution for your monitor?
Look at the manufacturer name, and the model number on the back.
Type this information in your browser search bar, then click on the search icon.

Look for Specifications.

If you changed the screen resolution settings with the monitor, press the Menu button. The screen should go off.

ALSO, with a new monitor there is an Installation CD Disk, provided with it.
This disk MUST be used. It has the drivers for the monitor on it.

[ Drivers: Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.

The monitor is a Device.
Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Operating System ]

If you have Vista or Windows 7, post in a Comment.

When i put pc on this message comes up on screen saying input not supported and it floats round in a little box.


Hello,
This generally means you have the display resolution set higher then the monitor can support. To fix this press F8 after you turn the computer on. You may have to press it a couple times before the windows loading screen. A black menu will come up. Select safe mode. Your PC will load into safe mode with minimal drivers and settings. Go to the control panel and select display. Change your screen resolution to something lower then the setting is is at right now. If your screen is 19" or smaller try a setting of 1024x768 for starters. If its 20" or higher try 1280x1024 for starters.

Choose Screen ResolutionFor higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments.

I am trying to connect my toshiba laptop to my philips tv by vga but i do not know what settings to put my laptop on


Hi,

Assuming that you have hooked the cables right, you need to press the key combination Fn + F? to activate the external video output of the Toshiba laptop. The "?" would depend on the exact model of your Toshiba. Additionally, there would be a blue lettered indicator on one of the top keys of keyboard indicating a monitor.

Incidentally, it might be worth mentioning that most TV can not operate on too high a setting of the Resolution of your Display Properties and therefore would require that the laptop's Screen Resolution be lowered down when used in conjunction with an external display device such as a monitor. At other times, the Screen refresh Rates would need to be lowered down also.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

It sounds as though your screen resolution has changed for some reason. It is unusual for this to happen on its own, but it is possible.

Your computer will allow different monitors to be used and there are settings that you can adjust for the best resolution depending on your monitor's requirements.

The reason your icons were all large is probably because your computer changed to a lower resolution.

Try the following
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok

You computer will take a second or so to change.
Best wishes...
