Generally - you simply need to right-click anywhere on the desktop that does not have an icon present, and select "Screen resolution". Adjust the slider as needed to obtain the desired resolution. If the resolution desired is not available, choose another that is close.

Digging deeper, you might want to investigate the "Advanced settings" to make sure that you've got the correct drivers loaded in the settings for both the "Adapter" and "Monitor" tabs.

Lastly, "Windows Ultimate x64" is the 64 bit version of Windows. The 32-bit version is referred to as "Windows Ultimate x86" If there are both 32-bit and 64-bit drivers available for your Aspire, make sure you get the correct version 32-bit = x86 and 64-bit = x64. The "x86" tag came from the Intel processor line up where the "x" represented the generation (8, 16 and 32 bit CPUs) and the "86" were the last two digits to indicate the instruction set used by the CPU like this:

8086, 80286, 80386, 80486, etc.

The 64 bit CPUs are not x86 family processors, so they do not carry the x86 tag. Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you - good luck!

Note sure if you have the steps to manually change your display settings in Windows 7 but the link below will help you do this.

http://www1.fixya.com/support/r4290529-change_windows_7_display_settings
After checking these steps and you still have trouble look to see if Sony has a Vista 32 bit driver for your computer because in most cases the Vista drivers will work with Windows 7.

Let me know if you have any more problems or quesitons

Acer Aspire 5610Z. Upgraded to Win 7. Screen resolution changes


Hello,

Your laptop was not designed to run windows 7 or be compatible with it. It may run fine with windows 7 but issues might come up sooner or later like the one you're experiencing.

[EXPERIMENTAL]
Download both of these (as I don't know which one of thsese two your laptop needs). Keep mind that doing the following could render your system inoperable and use at own risk. When downloaded, extract ZIP , open desired folder and find SETUP or INSTALL program. Right click and choose properties, then navigate to compatibility mode, then select windows Vista from the menu. Then apply changes, ok and close window and attempt to start.

Not all systems are supported by Windows 7. Infact many items that were supported by vista are not supported in windows 7.

looking at your system specs you woudl originally have AMD Mobile Sempron 3000+ / 1.8 GHz , 256mb ram and windows xp home as your original.

this system does not meet the minimum requirements to run Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 at all.

minimum specs for windows 7 are

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

  • i do not recommend a 1ghz system. i would recommend a 2ghz or better with 2GB of memory for a basic version

    The screen and everything on it is enlarged very big and even after changing the settings and doing a system restore it won't change


    CHANGE RESOLUTION OF YOUR MONITOR. RIGHT CLICK ON EMPTY DESKTOP, SELECT property, SELECT display, AND resolution. INCREASE RESOLUTION TO 1600X1200 OR SIMILAR. PROBABLY IT IS SET NOW AT 800X600.
