After being on a few minutes, the text becomes very blurry I lowered the resolution, which makes the text bigger and helps some. There is an internal adjustment, but I don't know where??


Hi hamptonwhh,

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges. Please follow the steps below on how to adjust your screen resolution.

Windows XP
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

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.

Windows Vista/7
1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

Notes : When you change the screen resolution, it affects all users who log on to the computer.

When you set your monitor to a screen resolution that it won't support, the screen will go black for a few seconds while the monitor reverts back to the original resolution.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi

Normally, you can use the Fn+F8 keyboard shortcut to switch the video image to the display only, the display and
external monitor simultaneously, or the external monitor only. Unfortunately, the Fn+F8 only works with the VGA
external monitors, not with composite/S-video monitors on Latitude C610

I have not tested this but give it a try. It should work if you have correct Video drivers (Manufacture drivers and
not Microsoft drivers) installed.

In Windows XP:
Right click Desktop and choose Properties,
Click the Settings tab, and click Advanced
-or-
Go to Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Themes.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Display.
Click the Settings tab, and click Advanced.

Click the Displays tab.
Click the upper-left corner of the TV button to enable the TV.
Click OK.
