Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

I can't get my screen to view properly. It's a wide screen, and it's stretching my images to fit the screen. It used to display properly, but somehow it got shifted to this new "stretched" view. How can I correct it? I've tried to correct it through the desktop appearance dialog box, but it doesn't correct the "stretching".

Wide screen monitor distortion
Depending upon the screen resolution that has been set in Display, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
To correct this distortion.
1. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down the Shift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
2. Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolution slider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle image to the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then change the screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied with the image of the circle.
3. When you are satisfied then click apply.

You can play with the Display settings and see what suits you. Try 1280 x 768

I can't get my desktop to cover the whole screen. I have windows 7. How can I get it to cover my whole screen?


If you mean the wallpaper, you will need to go into the desktop properties and set it to stretch the image. If you mean the desktop itself...you will need to change the screen resolution.

Standard monitors use dimentions like 1024x768, but a wide screen uses one like 1280x768. If you use a resolution that doesn't match the aspect ratio of the monitor it will fill in the extra space with black space and no desktop.

New wide screen not compatible with my old pcv-rx650


Try, right clicking, then pushing the option of customise or personalize (depends on operating system), then it will give you an option (by where you change your background), to change the resolution. Choose one of the bigger ones, then when you hook up the other monitor, it will fit on the screen, and you can go back the the same screen and pick the one that looks best with that display (The monitor should have came with a manual that says the recommended resolution for the display.

What video card is in my computer?


You can right click the mouse on the windows desktop and select PROPERTIES, there you select the SETTINGS tab and look for a resolution slider, move it and see if you can find the resolution you need.

To find out what video card you have, you can click on the ADVANCED button on that same SETTINGS tab. It will open a new window where you will need to click on the ADAPTER tab. There will be the info on the graphic card, the resolutions it can support will be listed on the LIST ALL MODES... button.

Take into account you might have an integrated graphics card, so it may be necessary to know the manufacturer of the motherboard in order to find an updated driver that supports the new resolutions of new wide screen monitors.

Any other doubt on this subject feel free to ask on this same post.
