Question about 3M Vikuiti eXtended Resolution Video Screen XRVS-120 Monitor

Adjusting Screen Resolution

When I try to play a game all of the sudden, it opens the game in a window rather than using the full screen. I thought my 2 year old messed something up so I tried to adjust the screen resolution, but it won't let me adjust the resolution on Screen 2. That is the only thing I can think to do but it won't work. What can I do?

    what is the game? usually this happens to games from Sierra they have an option to click that will allow you to play the game in a window, it is called "run in window" that is usually in the video / graphics options of the game.

Try changing the resolution your TV is putting out; it may not be in full screen, but at least everything won't be stretched! 800x600 has a different ratio than 1360x768

thats really odd that windows 7 doesnt give you full screen but the game does? change your resolution settings around to see if that helps altho i doubt it. check menu settings on your monitor and see if you can change its aspect ratio

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.

When I open game the monitor become black and show: Analogique shortcut 53.6 Khz/85 hz


Your resolution or screen refresh rate sounds like it is too high.

Try dropping your resolution to 1024 x 768 and see if the issue persists.

If it does then perhaps your game is trying to force you into a higher resolution output and faster screen refresh rate than your graphics card or your screen can handle.

Assuming that the graphic output is fine when your not playing this game and just using windows?

before you start your game, you can try to modify your screen resolution and then start the game it will fit to the new screen size.

depending on your OS (winodws)

WIN XP close all windows and place your mouse over your desktop right click and select properties. a windows will pop out with the following tabs THEMES, DESKTOP, SCREEN SAVER SETTINGS.
click on settings and you will see a computer screen(s) and it will be a place to change the SCREEN RESOLUTION (800x600) (1024x768) etc try a diffrent one from the one you are using and click apply and then OK. run the game, if it persist just try a different size.

WIN VISTA click on desktop area and sellect PERSONALIZATION, click on Display settings and change the RESOLUTION.aplly and ok.

if my advice was of any help please rate me :)
thank you

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out


If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
