How do i get my computer out of the resolution mode?
Apparently the monitor screen resolution setting is not correct. Screen resolution stays up until it is corrected.
Either the setting is off in Windows, or you have been changing the monitor settings, with the monitor.
Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Go down to where it states Screen Resolution.
What is the pixel setting? For example mine states 1600 x 900 pixels.
I am running dual monitors, and this is the correct screen resolution for the Primary monitor.
If it wasn't I would Left-click on the Slider, hold the left mouse button down, and slide the Slider to the correct native resolution.
(Under Screen Resolution is a line. To the left it states - Less
To the right of the line it states - More
The Slider is the rectangular down arrow on the line )
Under the Color quality heading, make sure in the box under it, that it states - Highest (32 bit)
IF not, left-click on the blue down arrow to the right.
Then left-click right on - Highest (32 bit)
How to know what is the native resolution for your monitor?
Look at the manufacturer name, and the model number on the back.
Type this information in your browser search bar, then click on the search icon.
Look for Specifications.
If you changed the screen resolution settings with the monitor, press the Menu button. The screen should go off.
ALSO, with a new monitor there is an Installation CD Disk, provided with it.
This disk MUST be used. It has the drivers for the monitor on it.
[ Drivers: Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.
The monitor is a Device.
Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
