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.

Need to shrink my computer screen back to normal size have windows vista


Right click on any open area of the desktop screen and select Screen Resolution. There should be a recommended Resolution size or keep trying different resolution till it fits the screen. Your screen size will determine your resolution. 17in 19in 22in 24in etc.

Want to purchase a new screen for dell dimension 1100 computer, what is the maximum resolution it will support?


it will support well above any resolution you can get from any new screen, all which are set at best 1080i which is 1920x1080 resolution. You computer probably can do double that, which will be good for the next generation of TVs which will be out this time next year.

The problem might be that your system is trying to start with a high resolution that your screen can't support. All you have to do is to reduce the resolution of your screen, so follow these steps

- Reboot your computer.
- Press F8 right before Windows starts you will get a troubshooting menu.
- Select start on VGA mode.
- Once you are on the system.
- Go to your Control panel->Display->Settings->Screen Resolution.
- Decreese the screen resolution. Try 1024x768 or other resolutions, if the screen turn to black, press ESC to discard that resolution and then try an other one.

Good luck.

Picture on screen is enlarged, discolored, and fuzzy


You need to go into your display settings and change your screen's resolution. Go to control panel, then display, then settings. Depending on your systems screen size the setting could be a little different but mine works best at 1280 x 768 on my 22" monitor. You can try that and adjust accordingly (either 1 notch up or down) 'til you find what suits your liking. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Changing from old moniter to flat sceen. the new one will get to windows logo, load up, then says no signal. wats wrong please?


Your screen resolution might be the problem. Put the old monitor back on, change the resolution to 800x600 for example, and restart. Then plug in your new flat screen. You then should be able to increase the resolution via the Display control panel and see how far it will let you go.

Good luck!

I just recently bought a Samsung 245BW monitor and am having problems getting the right setting. It looks OK, but I know it could look a lot better. I tried playing with different resolutions, contrast and...


1. Right-click on the Desktop.

2. Choose "Properties" from the Shortcut menu that appears.

3. Click on the Settings tab at the top of the Display Properties window.

4. Under Settings is a list or a scroll bar (depending on your Windows version) containing available screen resolutions. Click on or use the slider to select the resolution you want.

Lower resolutions will display larger letters and icons, while higher resolutions display smaller letters and icons on your desktop.

5. Click "Apply", then "OK".

6. You'll have fifteen seconds to decide if the new screen resolution looks good or not. If you like the way the screen looks, click "Yes"; otherwise, click "No" and go back to step 4 for a different resolution. (If you can't see the screen at all, Windows will automatically revert to your original settings after fifteen seconds.)

7. Click "OK".

I've got the good resolution on my screen, accidentaly i deleted a program and my screen resolution turned awful. can anybody help me with that?


What program did you delete? It may have been the drivers for your video card. For future reference, you should not "delete" or uninstall any program unless you are sure of it's function.

Now to resolve your resolution problem, in XP simply right click on your desktop select Properties>Settings tab. Ajust the resolution to the desired level. If a desirable resolution is not available, you may need to update the driver for your video card.

If you need to update the driver for your card, just post back on this thread.
