Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4

1 Answer

I'm trying to adjust the appearance of my screen. The problem is that it has a "washouted" look. Either the resolution is off or the brightness needs increasing. I have tried several ways to change this but the instructions for this monitor are simply not specific enough. The monitor controls consist of two arrows on the right hand side, a menu button and an auto fig. I have followed the instuctions on the disk(page 13) but with no success. I've also accessed my "properties" option by clicking the right side of the mouse on the desktop. Is there a direct and easier way to change my resolution and/or color? Thank you, Robert Jenkins(please direct answer to -rjenks245@hotmail.com- or i'll wait for your rreply in this window. thank you

Laptop screen resolution problem and solution


Laptop Screen Resolution Problems and solution
By hamack4real, fixya Contributor I want to do this! What's This? jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

Laptop screen resolution problems can vary for a variety of reasons. The most common types of problems generally involve some sort of hardware or software issue that causes the display to not work correctly. Correcting a laptop screen resolution problem can be done by making changes to hardware or software settings used by the computer.

    Symptoms
  1. There can be many symptoms to a display problem. Symptoms can include a screen that appears dim or one that is totally black. Other symptoms include odd colors or blotches that appear on the display as well as oversized icons on the desktop. Symptoms can also include icons that are the wrong size on the desktop.
  2. Causes
  3. There can be many causes that can result in different issues affecting the display. Common causes include damage or loose parts. Damage can result when the laptop is dropped or has something fall on top if it. Hinges that are loose are going to cause a problem because the display will not stay in an upright position. Other causes include a bad video driver or an improperly set resolution.
  4. Diagnose
  5. A screen resolution problem will need to be diagnosed to determine what actions to take to resolve the problem. Check the laptop for any loose or broken parts that might need to be repaired. Once that is done, run a test of the video display. Use the video display troubleshooter for Windows XP systems, the help and how-to for Windows Vista systems and the troubleshooting guide for Apple computers.
  6. Solutions
  7. Changing the resolution of the display can be done to fix some types of screen resolution problems. Changing the resolution can fix display problems with some programs as well as websites that have embedded video. Refer to the laptop manual for instructions to access the display settings to change the resolution setting. Updating the video driver might also help to resolve some known issues by the vendor.
  8. Brightness
  9. A dim screen can be corrected by adjusting the brightness of the display. Adjusting the brightness can be done on the keyboard as well as from the display properties. Press the FN key on the keyboard and use the right arrow key to increase the brightness of the display. The brightness settings can also be found as an option in the display settings. Keep in mind a laptop will dim the screen to conserve battery

Hi , I think your laptop brightness settings had been changed. So try this to increase and reduce the brightness , contrast. Select start-> control panel -> appearance & personalization -> display . There you will have options like Adjust brightness , Adjust resolution etc., on the left side of your window. You may adjust in this way.

Click on the resolution bar and slide it to the right to lower the screen's resolution and to the left to raise the screen's resolution.


The optimum screen resolution usually depends on the size of the laptop screen.


The recommended resolution for a 15-inch screen is 1024 x 768, 17- to 19-inch screen is 1280 x 1024, and 20-inch screens is 1600 x 1200.

In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."

Click "Colors." Choose 32-bit for a high color-pixel ratio that will make the colors brighter and bring out image details.


Choose 24-bit for a medium color-pixel ratio if the screen is too bright or if images are somewhat distorted.


Some older laptops have a 16-bit color setting, but this setting is no longer recommended as it will distort images and text.


Always Click "Apply" to see how the color setting looks on the laptop's monitor.

Click "OK" to save the color settings


hope this helps

Signal outof range


  • Make sure the pins on the video cable are not bent or damaged.
  • Make sure there are no extension cables or switch boxes attached to the monitor.
  • Verify that you have the proper drivers installed for the video card.
  • Verify the problem at all possible resolutions and refresh rates.
  • Make sure the refresh rate does not exceed maximum value for any resolution.
  • Test the monitor on a different computer.
  • Contrast is recommended to be set at a higher range while the brightness should be set at middle range. This helps to increase the text clarity while reducing the bright background.
  • If your monitor is equipped with moire control, adjusting this may improve the clarity of the text. Moire is a wavy distortion pattern caused by interference between the dot pitch of the CRT and the picture signal. The pattern may vary depending on the screen amplitude, contrast, brightness, and other characteristics of the input signal.
  • Monitor's performance may be affected by the Earth's magnetic field. Try rotating the monitor to different directions to improve misconvergence.
  • Most video cards offer a software utility that changes the frequencies and sync polarities for all resolutions. If the setup does not match with the monitor's characteristics, an incorrect signal may be displayed on the screen. Sometimes, the image may also appear blurry.

    Screen adjustment


    Adjust the screen area of the computer’s display settings to match the projector’s native resolution. Refer to your projector documentation for the optimum or native-resolution setting for your projector model. If you can't find this information or are uncertain, most projectors support a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels.
    • With certain laptops, you might need to disable the laptop display to obtain the best image, especially when the native resolution of the laptop exceeds the native resolution of the projector.
    • Font smoothing will automatically generate a cleaner font outline, both on your laptop and on the projector. To apply font smoothing, do the following:
    1.
    In Control Panel, open Display.
    2.
    On the Appearance tab, click the Effects button.
    3.
    In the Effects dialog box, select the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts check box, and then select Standard or ClearType in the list.


    If the projected image is dimmer than it was on the laptop, check your projector documentation for information regarding lamp timers. If the lamp life has expired, replace the lamp for maximum brightness.
    If the projected image is not rectangular, try one or both of the following:
    • Make sure that the projector is perpendicular to the viewing screen.
    • Raise or lower the projector.
    If the projected image displays vertical lines, "bleeding," or spots, try one or more of the following:
    • Adjust the brightness of the image.
    • Check the projector lens to see whether it needs cleaning.
    • Adjust the sync and tracking on the projector.
