Another thing you can try is this:

move your mouse over to a section on the screen and press the right mouse button. Click on properties. Select the appearence tab. Press the Effects button. Make sure that use large icons isn't checked. Press ok after your changes are made.

There are addition settings that can change this well if that doesn't work depending on what your video card is in your computer.

Large monitor has distorted display


try adjusting your system resolution to a largest one (as 1280 x 800), or using a DVI cable, if your monitor and video card supports it.

I bought second hand monitor samsung syncmaster750s..when i plug it the icons become blurry and become large and i cannot set my resolution...i use the vga mode because when i start it normally..it au


Normally if you go in VGA mode the screen will be installed and when rebooting in normal mode it will set itself.
In VGA mode the resolution is 640x480 and you can't set the resolution higher, so what you are experiencing is normal.

From what you are saying it seems that the driver installed from windows is the wrong one, you can try to run windows update to see if there is a driver for it or go on samsung website.

You can get the driver from samsung here :
Samsung 750s driver

If after that it doesn't work check on the internet for compatibility issues with your graphic card, since some of the newer cards can have compatibility issues with the older CRT screens.

Hannspree 19" HF199H LCD - Display is LARGE on monitor!


Try Control Panel - Appearance or Display- You can change how your 2nd display looks there.. Sounds like you have it set in Clone mode...(both displays show the same things)...See if you can reset the 2nd display resolution while keeping the laptop in its normal resolution. Not all machines can do this...but most recent ones should be able to.

Monitor gone dull


there is a key on the keyboard which controls brightness. on mine it is the second key on the right, of the bottom row. it has a small sun on it. Press this key at the same time as the function key (on mine, bottom row, second from the left, blue key marked Fn) - and the monitor will brighten up.
