Widen the screen on Westinghouse tv


Screens are controlled by ASPECT RATIO.
Monitors can have 4:3 16:9 and 16:10 ratios.

You are doing 1 of 3 things.
  1. You have a regular monitor and the tv and are duplicating the screen.
  2. You have a regular monitor and the TV and are extending the screen.
  3. You have just the tv connected.
Your video card has to have a screen resolution that meets the tv's ratio to have the tv take the full screen.

If your configuration is 1. the tv will only match the monitor resolution, so if you change the screen resolution, you may get bars on the monitor, and the tv will go wide screen.

if your configuration is 2. the tv is controlled independently and you can select it to change its resolution to an appropriate aspect resolution. *this requires that your video card gives you the correct screen resolution for your tv. not all displays will work.

If your configuration is 3. the tv is the only resolution that is being pushed and just adjust the resolution til the screen is filled in.

To adjust the screen resolution, right click on the desktop where there isnt an icon and select either Properties (windows xp) or Screen Resolution (windows vista, 7 and 8).

if you have 2 screens press the identify button and it will put a number on each screen. click the appropriate screen and go to the resolution dropdown below. Change, apply and if it doesn't look right, revert and try a different setting. if you try them all and it won't take up the full screen, then the video card can't push the video resolution your monitor wants.

Widen border on Toshiba lap top


Widen border on what? A document, if so go into page setup. If you're talking about the whole screen, go into the Desktop under the Control Panel and change the screen resolution.

Gateway monitor pixels discolored on monitor


This happens when you keep a device close to monitor which uses wireless technology or signal(Cell phone, wireless router or modem). Also try to make distance between speakers and monitor, as speakers contains magnets and that causes such issues.

I have a 1 inch on the left and right side how do I get full scre


if you hav a monitor separate from your computer(not a laptop)then just use your settings on the monitor untill it works again the way you like it..

or for laptops and monitors with no controls on them go 2 control panel>>>>appearance and themes>>>>display. then click on the tab that says settings. go 2 advanced and the dpi setting should be set at 96....and if nothing changes go 2 the appearance tab then 2 advanced. and at the bottom for the item look for active window border and the size should say 1. if it does then keepo trying to make the number bigger so your page doesnt have a black border

Hi i want to widen my screen


The Resolution can be changed in Windows XP by minimizing all applications, right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties. In the Display Settings window go to the Settings tab. Here you can change the resolution. I think you are wanting to use a widescreen setup so going for a resolution of 1280x800 should fill your screen. Play around with the available settings to resize the screen.

If you are using MS Vista, you need to minimize all applications to the desktop, right click, select Personalize. In the Personalize Window click on Display Settings down the bottom, modify the resolution as appropriate.

Alternatively, you may be able to find the function key that did this to your resolution. Above your F1-F12 keys there should be a little picture. If you click on the [fn] key (near the Windows key) as well as one of the F1-F12 keys you can cause different functions to be performed. This may be how the resolution changed initially.

Good luck
