Hi,Well Try running it in safe mode,press F8 constantly as you power-up the system,you cant change resolution here but i think you can do system restore,if it does not work,try connecting to an external monitor with a higher screen size than yours,like if yours is a 14" inch look for 15" or 17" inches an connect to laptop select resolution and reduce it to the lowest 800x600 or lower,shut down,disconnect external monitor and restart.

Try manually choosing lower resolutions in your xbox display settings. My Insignia HDTV does that when switching resolutions like on Hulu in between commercials and then back to the show but only for a second or so. Also does this when going from the loading screens to the game screens for a few seconds when playing the game Split/Second

Your game does not natively run at the same resolution as Windows. Check the video/graphics settings in the game itself to adjust the resolution to 1920x1080.
Note that increasing the resolution to this, will drastically increase the load on your graphic card.

You appear to be cloning your internal LCD and as long as it is active, the resolution setting for the LCD is also controlling the resolution of the external monitor. When the LCD is closed, then the default resolution of the external monitor is being used by Windows 7 (It apparently has autodetected the size of the monitor and knows the Highest optimal resolution it will display.) The higher the resolution, then smaller the icons.
To resolve, go to display properties and check the resolution of the internal LCD and then set the External display to the lower resolution.
You should be able to wake the system with an external keyboard, by pressing the spacebar, if the system is sleeping

Yes video drivers need to be updated then go back where you went to change the resolution and click keep this resolution I think you mistakenly told not to accept it this happens.

RectangulaR box on my screen says: input not supported


If your monitor is displaying a message, that's good news: Your monitor is not shut. What the message is saying is that either the refresh rate frequency, or the resolution you have set your video card to on your pc/laptop, is too high for your LCD (I assume) monitor, and it cannot handle these settings.
It would appear that the default refresh rate for LCDs is only 60Hhz.
Reboot your machine in SAFE MODE, pressing the F8 key repeatedly as soon as the initial POST messages disappear from the screen. Next, select Safe Mode from the different options shown.
Once the PC starts and you're running Windows, go to Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Adjust Screen Resolution->Advanced Settings->Adapter->List All Modes and verify that the resolution that's been set is within the range allowed by your monitor.
Your user's manual should have this information. In case you don't have this information, change it to something safe, like 800 x 600 pixels, at 60Hz refresh rate.
Close all windows, reboot, and Voila! Your monitor is back to life!
Should you wish to continue to improve your monitor resolution, then right click anywhere on an empty spot on your desktop, and choose Personalize->Adjust Display Settings, and try a higher resolution, remembering to leave the refresh rate at 60Hz.
Good luck!
