Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

When creating a Kai's Power Show quick show the images in the slide show are always much smaller than the computer screen images on the monitor or projector. When projecting a show this not a problem, because I move the screen back to produce a larger image. When making a copy on a DVD writer the images are of course real small only a quarter of the screen size or less. Any ideas?

Pose your problem in a Kai's Power Show category, natch.
Then the experts can tell you to configure quick show and save your configuration.
You should probably let people on to what version you're using, and double-check that you haven't specified a need to keep room in the matte for the full file-path, title, metadata, and other stuff that would use up the other 3/4 of the screen in the show template you saved last time.

How can I make the screen smaller when I want to.?


adjust your screen resolution. Higher numbers mean more dots per inch, and that means smaller images on screen.

Monitor buying tips you should know.


Over the years monitors have transformed from those bulky CRT monitors to square LCD screens to stylish flat wide screen LCD's and now to new stylish extremely thin LED screens. On average every PC user spends at least 5 hours a day looking at the monitor. If the picture is fuzzy and not clear enough then there is a very high possibility that the eyes get damaged.

Monitor Sizes
There are many different sizes of CRT, square LCD, wide LCD and wide LED monitors available on the market at the moment.

If you want an older CRT screen then sizes can range between 14" to about 20", they use the 4:3 aspect ratio.
If you want an older LCD screen then sizes can range from 15" to 19", they also use the 4:3 aspect ratio.
If you want a newer wide screen LCD then sizes can range from 18.5" to about 27" and even larger. They use the 16:9 if they are full HD or 19:10 if they are not ratio.
If you want a newer wide screen LED then sizes can range from 18.5" to about 27" and even larger. They also use the 16:9 if they are full HD or 19:10 if they are not ratio.

Image quality
The sharpness of the image in a monitor greatly depends on your Graphics card as well as whatever resolution you are running at. Nevertheless the quality of the monitor plays an important role.

Here are some of the tips that you should know before buying a monitor.

1. There are three types of monitors namely CRT, LCD and LED. The monitor that looks like a TV is a CRT monitor. In CRT monitors there is a Cathode Ray Tube that shoots electrons into the screen to create the image. An LCD monitor is smaller in width and consumes less power and is healthier if you are going to be spending large amounts of time at your PC. The LED screen looks the same as an LED monitor and the difference between it and the LCD is that it has a much higher contrast ratio resulting in darker blacks and much lighter whites.

3. A CRT monitor is much heavier than LCD monitor as you can imagine by it's bulky appearance. A LCD monitor is very lightweight and so is a LED monitor.

4. The distance between two adjacent pixels in a monitor is called 'dot pitch'. This is measured in millimeters (mm). Smaller the dot pitch the clearer the picture quality. Usually there are monitors with dot pitch varying between 0.20 mm to 0.27mm. Some manufacturers use diagonal dot pitch while most of them use horizontal dotpitch. The diagonal dot pitch is always longer than the horizontal dot pitch

5. Resolution of a monitor has to be considered with care. Most of the CRT monitors have resolutions of 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280x1024. The square LCD monitors have 1280×1024 and 1600×1200 resolutions. Newer wide screen LCD monitors have resolutions of 1600x1900, 1680x1050 and the Full HD 1920x1090. When the resolution is higher the images and text will appear smaller. But you can see more text and bigger pictures in the monitor with high resolution.

6. Another thing to note is the 'Refresh rate'. This rate is usually 60Hz, 73Hz, 75Hz, 85Hz. Refresh rate of 85Hz means the picture on the monitor is refreshed 85 times within a second.

7. The brightness and contrast can range between a low 5 000:1 to a high 80 000:1 in a LCD monitor and an average of 5 000 000:1 in a LED, yes that's 5 million to 1 with a LED. This just shows how much better a LED monitor is to a LCD.

8. If you are a gamer then the thing you have to look at with LCD monitors and LED monitors is the response time. If it is 16ms then this is a very bad monitor for gaming and you will experience a ghosting effect in most games and if it is 5ms then you will have an average gaming experience. What you want to get is a 2ms response time monitor, with it you will have the best gaming experience with no ghosting what-so-ever.

How to resize your desktop background.


If your desktop is smaller than the dimensions of your monitor then follow the following steps to get a full screen:

Setting the resolution:

1) Right click on an open spot on your desktop and select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu.
slasher_x_35.jpg

2) This will then open up the Display Properties window as shown below.
slasher_x_36.jpg

3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right of the Display Properties window as shown in the image below.
slasher_x_37.jpg

4) At the bottom left of the settings tab there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left or right until you find the resolution you like.
6) The click Apply when you have found the right resolution.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.
NB: If you are using a CRT (older screen) the max resolution will be around 1280x1024. Newer LCD screen (flat and thin monitors) can go way up to 1920x1080 and beyond if HD is supported.

NOTE: If when doing the screen resolution changes your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key to restore it back to your previous settings

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

This tip is useful when you plug in a monitor and the screen displays the No Signal or Signal out of Range massages. Simply change the resolution to something the monitor can handle and there you go.

Gateway one zx4351 screen does not turn on when i turn on the pc


I have to assume you get a power light on the monitor. If possible hook the monitor up to a different PC. If it works the problem is in the PC not the monitor. If not then the monitor is at fault. If the monitor see if there is an image on the screen by shining a flashlight on the face. If there is an image then the backlighting has failed. On desktop monitors it is usually the power board that lights the CCFL backlight lamps and it could be as simple as failed electrolytic capacitors that have swollen and failed. If so you could replace the capacitors or replace the whole power board. Of course most people opt to replace the monitor as a whole. If the monitor works fine then the video section is at fault. If it has a plugin video board then check to see if it's fully seated in the slot. If the video is integrated on the motherboard then motherboard replacement is needed.

I want to know if it is possible topause a slide show and save an image toa folder


Thanks for choosing fixya.com

Most slide shows will have buttons on the bottom to pause and resume. Others you can click them to pause. If none of those are available you won't be able to pause the slide show.

You can however get the images you want to save by using either the "Print Screen" button or a program like "camstudio" to record the screen into images.

I'll cover the "Print screen" button here since its much easier.

First off locate the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard, this is usually above the arrow keys and may only say "PRT SCR"

Now press print screen, open up an application like mspaint, photoshop, or gimp (Any imaging program will do).
Go to "Edit >> Paste" or press CTRL+V to paste the screen image.

You can then use the imaging applications crop or cut features to cut out the image you want to keep.

Hope this helps you out.
