Download the drivers for your video card from the mauafacturer website while in 640x480. Try and install the software. If this don't work right click on "My Computer" click "Properties" click on the "Hardware" tab then click on "Device Manager" you will need to find your video card and uninstall it then reinstall the new software. If this does not solve your issue you should pick-up another card and install it with software included in box.
Hope this helps.

How do I get missing Icons back on my PC screen


The higher the resolution, the more likely you will be able to see your icons.
From Microsoft.com:
1. Open Display in Control Panel. 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. Note
• To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display. • A higher screen resolution reduces the size of items on your screen and increases the relative space on your desktop • You can switch your screen resolution temporarily to 640 X 480 if you have games or other programs that are set to run at that resolution. To switch, right-click the game or program (on the desktop or on the Start menu), and then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, and then select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your display reverts to its default resolution when you close the program. • Your monitor and video adapter determine how much you can change your screen resolution. You may not be able to increase the resolution above a certain level. • Changes to screen resolution affect all users that log on to the computer. • Only the recommended screen resolutions are listed. For additional settings, click the Advanced button on the Settings tab, click the Adapter tab, and then click List all Modes. Select the resolution, color level, and refresh rate you want.

Tips on how to adjust computer's 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.
  1. The highest resolution of the monitor.
  2. The resolution of the Video card.
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. For example, personally, my built computer is not a high-end type of computer and the video card I'm using is a 512MB 2048x1536 but since my monitor can only handle 1024x768, that's what my resolution is. I move it up to a higher resolution, I get a black screen. 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.

Now, to adjust the computer's resolution:
  1. Right Click on your desktop.
  2. Click on Personalize.
  3. Click on the Settings tab.
  4. There you will find the drop down for the resolution of the video card.
  5. Select the desired resolution. The higher the resolution, the finer it looks.
  6. If it gets blurry, black, or simply goes bad or grainy, it means that the monitor cannot handle that certain resolution, so lower it down.
  7. Click Apply.
  8. Click OK.
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. Thank you for choosing FixYa! Have a good one. A 4 thumbs up and a comment will be greatly appreciated.

HOW DO I FIX MY SCREEN RESOLUTION FROM CHANGING FROM 1280X1024 TO 640X480


JFrank,

Your monitor needs to be a high resolution monitor which supports 1280X1024. If is not then this is why your monitor keeps going back to 640x480. If it is a hi res monitor then you may need to update your drivers. If it is a Windows machines simply click the task bar>>control panel>>enter "Windows Update" in search box then click it and your drivers will be updated

Flashing magenta screen, blue screen and shutdown


Your screen is bad more than likely. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your original monitor, then the Video Card inside the computer is bad.

It has something to do with your screen resolution. Maybe the games resolution is higher that what your monitor can use. Under your game settings, look for Options> Video> Resoltion, set it to 800x600 and try to play again. If it works, then adjust it to a higher resolution.

I have a tv screen which i use for my computer.I have the hdmi cords going from the video card on the back to my tv.why is it not working


Hi,
Make sure your t.v. screen supports your display card resolution. Try lowering your display card resolution in display settings. Make sure your t.v. is set to AVI.

Best wishes,
