Make sure lcd setting are fine.
You can adjust lcd screen with function key Fn + key on keyboard which show lcd settings symbol.
Also uninstall graphic driver then reinstall.
Check in vga mode for that when you power the computer press F8 key so you can see safe mode and other menu enter in enable vga mode then if you see good screen in 1024 *768 then you need to uninstall graphic driver and reinstall.
If you need driver you can download it from below link.

Hi! Please try to change the setting to 1280x800, this can resolve the problem. If no luck on this, I suggest that you reinstall the graphic card driver and if still doesnt work then the graphic card may be faulty so you will have to replace it. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Alright, if the setting is not available in your pc then you will have to upgrade the graphic card to access the display setting. It may not be possible to update the graphic card because its built in to the mother board. I can suggest that you find an update for the mother board which can update the built in graphic card too.

Compaq fs740 text too faint and fuzzy to read well


Firstly you need to switch to the monitor's optimal resolution of 1024x768 @ 85Hz and before anyone posts anything about resolution 1024x768 @ 85Hz is the optimum not the maximum. To change to this resolution: Assuming you are using Windows XP click with the right mouse button an an empty part of the desktop and select Properties (or click Start, then click Control Panel then click Display), on the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider bar until it says 1024x768 and then click Apply. Also in Display settings you'll find an advanced button, in the advanced panel you'll see the option to adjust the refresh rate, try adjusting this to 85Hz. Now press the Menu Button on the front of the monitor and press + of - until you see an option called "Degauss" and press the select button on the front of the monitor, your screen will do a disturbing jump and flicker accompanied by a metallic thud, this is normal. If this doesn't help message back.

Hi, i own compaq presario CQ42 369TU laptop, how do i increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 or higher ?


For Windows XP...

1.
Open Display in Control Panel.
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.

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.

How do I change the display resolution on the control panel ABOVE the maxed out resolution shown so I can use a 17' screen which requires 1280x10xx? When I try to use any 17" monitor, a message comes...


Hi,

On a 17ins monitor the best resolution is 1024x768 regardless of whether it tells you a different "recommended" display resolution.

Just ignore any warning it gives you and it should work very well with the resolution i've told you, just use the slider to select the 1024x768.



Regards.

Resolution notice it says the best picture quality change to resalition to 1024x768 1 exit 2 disable how do i get rid of it


LCD monitors have what is called a native resolution. This is what the actual/physical display resolution is. When you try to display outside of this then you get the error. The easiest way to get rid of this is to set you video display resolution to the native monitor resolution.

If you look at the message it is saying if you hit 2 it will disable the error. To change the resolution in windows you can just right click anywhere on the desktop that is empty. This brings up the display properties. Go to the settings tab. At the lower left is a slider. Just slide it to show the desired display size in your case try the 1024x768 setting then hit apply. The screen will change and a nother window should pop up and ask if you want to keep the settings. If you take too long or say no it just resets to the prior settings. You can change it at any time.

1024x768 is a good setting it is high enough that the display is clean and sharp. And most web pages are designed around this size. Try it not only to get rid of the error but also to see what everything looks like. You can always change it back.

I have samsung syncmaster 740nw how can i increase screen resolution to 1024x768?


you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.

Tried hooking the computer to an external monitor. Got the welcome screen ok, then it lost sync and went black. Tried it on another plasma; same result. SVGA cable connection.


Hi there. When you connect an external display, your laptop clones your desktop to the external display, including resolution settings. First you need to check what resolution settings the plasma can display. If your laptop is set to a resolution that the external monitor can't display, then you will lose the display once the resolution settings are loaded. You can change the laptop resolution in your Display Settings.

If you don't know what settings the external monitor can display, just open your Display Settings and set your laptop resolution to 1024x768. Almost all new monitor/tv's can display it. Connect your external display, and see what happens. If it works, but the resolution doesn't look right, then just move the resolution along one more, until you find one you're comfortable with.

N.B. Some monitors/tv's "jump" resolutions. i.e. the monitor can display 1024x768, 1300x768, but not 1280x800.

Another thing to remember is that if you are running Windows Vista, you may need to check that the Windows Mobility Center recognises the external display that you are trying to use. You can find Windows Mobility Center by clicking Control Panel, then Mobile PC. It should now be listed on the screen.

Let me know how it goes, and if it works, please rate.

Display Resolution


Make sure you have the correct driver loaded from the Fujitsu website. Additionally, try removing the Display Adapter from device manager and reboot. This will allow Windows to identify the "new" hardware and attempt to install. If asked, point Windows to the driver files from Fujitsu and that should fix you up :)

Hope this helps!
