Question about ASUS P4S800-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Video problem Dear experts: I have an old 15" monitor "Samsung Sincmaster3" and by error I had changed the monitor resolution from 800x600 to a higher one and because of that when entering Xp desktop it is impossible to me to see properly and I can change back the resolution directly from the panel control. Also I' ve tried entering in the "bios set up" but there isn't any resolutions options in there. How can I do to go back to the correct 800x600 resolution? Thanks in advance, Claudio (from Argentina)

I had this same problem. What worked for me was going into safe mode, and in there I removed the video card from the device manager. When I restarted normally & windows re-installed it I was set back to the 800 X 600 which seems to be the default.

If that does not work I guess you could fall back to the old standby of delete windows & reinstall. While not my 1st choice it would fix the problem. Or another thought is take the machine to someone that has a better monitor, load into windows set it back to 800 X 600 & shut down. Back home it should be set again.

How to Adjust Computer Resolution and What needs to be Considered

Everybody likes a nice looking display but of course it's beyond our control. Check out the things that we need to consider about the resolution adjustment.<br /> <ol> <li>The highest resolution of the monitor.</li> <li>The resolution of the Video card.</li></ol> Why? The monitor can only handle a limited resolution let's say you have a monitor that has a resolution of 800X600 and you have a video card with a resolution of 1280X1024, you can increase the resolution up to 1280X1024 but since your computer can only handle up to 800X600 the display will look really bad like a double vision. I hope you got the Logic of that. Now, if you want to increase the resolution of your computer consider both the monitor and the video card. Of course it would be best if both the video card and the monitor has equivalent resolution or much better the monitor to have a higher resolution than the video card for upgrade purposes.<br /> <br /> Now, to adjust the computer's resolution:<br /> <ol> <li>Right Click on your desktop</li> <li>Click on Personaliza</li> <li>Click on the Settings tab</li> <li>There you will find the drop down for the resolution of the video card</li> <li>Select the desired resolution. The higher the resolution the finer it looks</li> <li>If it gets blurry or bad, it means that the monitor cannot handle that certain resolution, so lower it down.</li> <li>Click Apply</li> <li>Click OK</li></ol> There you go! Should you have any questions feel free to post a reply on this post and i'll be more than happy to help you out with it.

My 933sn has this stupid problem. when playing old games at 800x600 half the screen gets streched vertically. i play all the other games at 1360x768 but some like age of empires 2 or counter strike,...

Try changing the resolution your TV is putting out; it may not be in full screen, but at least everything won't be stretched! 800x600 has a different ratio than 1360x768

Can I increase the screen resolution on my EV700B monitor higher than 800x600? How?

Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Screen Resolution move the slider to the right to increase the screen resolution.
If you cannot increase the screen resolution, it means the correct video driver was not installed generic VGA driver was installed.
In this case install the video driver for your graphics card and change the screen resolution.

Cannot see all of IE at one time. Have to use

Go into Start >Control Panel> Display or Personalization (XP-Vista).
Find Display Settings and then look for resolution. Change the resolution up a notch (higher numbers) and look at the screen. If you like it, save the changes, if not, change until you like what you see on the screen.

Without knowing any more about your system I can only give you a couple of general ideas.
First try updating to the newest video card drivers possible.
You can try going to the drivers tab in display adapters in device manager and click update drivers.
Failing this, if your system is more than a few years old you will probably have to update to a more current video card to get the resolution that you need.
The native resolution for your screen is 1280x1024.

Monitor resolution can't be changed

some 15" monitors do not support 1024 by 768, check your monitor specifications if it does. google on the net with the exact monitor model no. and see if it supports.

Windows multiplied

what your son did is change the video resolution on your video card. right click on a blank area of your desktop, this will bring up a popup menu, left click on the word "properties" in the menu. this will bring up your display settings window. click on the "settings" tab. this is where the video resolution and color parameters are set. under screen resolution, there is a slider. move the slider to the left until the resolution is either 800x600 or 1024x768, then click "apply". this will get you back to a screen resolution that most monitors are happy with. if you had a higher resolution setting before, follow the same process to increase the resolution. also there is an option that allows you to test the resolution setting, and if it doesn't work, returns windows to it's previous setting. i recommend you use that option.
