Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

DISPLAYS ARE SIDEWAYS STRETCHED

I bought a Compaq Pressario computer, model CQ30701L. The monitor is 20 inch Compaq LCD model Q2009. The operating system is Windows XP. The displays were normal.

My computer had to be formatted 2 weeks back. Formatting was done with the original Windows XP CD supplied with the computer.

After Formatting images are sideways stretched. The screen resolution now is 1280 by 1024. Other available options are 800 by 600, 1024 by 768, 1600 by 1200 and 1920 by 1440.

I have tried 1024 by 768 and 800 by 600 resolutions. In these resolutions also images are equally sideways stretched.

I cannot set the resolution to 1600 by 1200 or 1920 by 1440. If I push the slider to those positions, I get warning ''Input signal out of range. Set resolution to 1600 by 900'' My computer does not have an option of 1600 by 900 resolution.

How do I get my images right?

    I have formatted with the original XP CD.Where will the CD get an improper display driver from?

    I have not changed the graphic card. Why should it now become of less capacity?

    Question is how do I get out of this problem?

This problem is because, when you formatted your PC, you have installed improper display driver of your PC model. This is also because of less capacity display/graphics card.

Have you made sure you switched the computer into "projector" mode or duplicated or extended your displays?

Does monitor have 3D


No, this is not a 3-D monitor. They are more expensive then a regular LCD LED monitor. Around 300-600.00. If you want one look at Newegg dot com. The best place for any PC stuff.

Desktop icons stretched horizontally


Sounds like you need to set the screen resolution for the monitor. The computer should recognize each screen individually in the desktop options dialog. If it doesn't recognize the two different screens, you may want to change the resolution when you plug in the monitor.

I HAVE COMPAQ S510 WITH DIM DISPLAY ...I NEED SOLUTION?


It will cost $50 to $100 to trouble-shoot and repair any 15-inch monitor.

It will cost $20 to $40 to purchase a "pre-owned" 15-inch LCD monitor.

If will cost $50 to $100 to buy a new 17-inch LCD monitor.

Your money; your choice.

The colors on my monitor are faded!!!! i got a compaq q2009


Check the backlight settings on the monitor, Sometimes they are set too low and it looks like the color is faded. In the monitor settings (on the monitor Itself) play with the color and brightness until you find a setting you like. If you need reset the monitor to factory.

I have compaq tft5000 15" lcd monitor when we


It is broken. Replace it.

If you look online for a "previously-owned" 15-inch LCD monitor, expect to pay $20 to $30.

If you go to any "big-box" electronics store, you can buy a 19-inch LCD monitor for under $100.

Either way, it's much less expensive to REPLACE it
than it would be for a professional TV/video technician to try to trouble-shoot and REPAIR it.

Might be there is some issue with the graphics.Reinstall the graphics driver once again.
If not, then might be there is some magnetic force near you lcd/monitor. Remove that.
Hopefully this will solve this.
