Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My dell m1210 display is acting funny. the laptop's monitor looks blurry, like it is in safe-mode or like it's not in the right resolution (but it is). another way to describe it is it looks like a secondary monitor is connected (but it is not). i downloaded the latest nvidia go 7400 drivers and actually it seems to be fixed but after a few hours of work it suddenly went back to being blurry... i don't believe it's a hardware problem and hope to get suggestions of what to do in the software to fix it. by the way - i also disabled PowerMizer as a few places I read online suggested but it didn't help as well.

If you can, connect an external display and check whether is it there or not?

    That means your laptop display having issue. Most probably the issue will solve with changing the inverter otherwise you need to change the full display. If it is in warranty consult the Service center. Otherwise consult with your friendly service engineer to check the FL invertor.

Monitor says out of range


If you are connected to a started computer, the resolution of your display adapter is not supported by your monitor. To solve this, you must restart your PC in safe mode and change the display settings (right click on the desktop/Properties/settings tab and you must try for the begining with a lower resolution, for example 800x600).
To start the PC in safe mode you must press the F8 key (or check the key for your operating system) before the OS loading (imediately after the PC starts or after the reset/restart) and than select the safe mode VGA.
Good luck!

You may have set the resolution/refresh higher than is possible for the laptop to produce, Try booting into safe mode (F8 on power up)
if you can, you can now reduce the resolution to the monitors default resolution.
If you have not already, pop over to the dell support site and download the right driver for your display

Acer -Video Display Issue


Hi there.
This could be 1 of 2 problems, lets start with the first.
#1 Bad display drivers

Boot the laptop into safe ( i am assuming you know how to do this by your post ) on the computer icon, right click and select manage, a new window will pop up and then select device manager, the list will populate with hardware that installed on the PC, look down the list for display adapters and click on the + sign on the left hand side to open the tree, then right click on the display adapter and select uninstall. Now restart the laptop and let it boot up as normal, if the display drivers were bad it will boot with the screen resolution as large, once you log in it should auto detect the display and install the drivers (you may have give it permission) if this works then that was the problem.

#2 Faulty graphics card.

Take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair as there will be nothing you can do about this kind of hardware failure.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

How can I make fonts look good in an LCD monitor ?


The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.

Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

I have a Dell GX60 and I changed the display resolution and


So, with The computer, completely turned off, Turn it on, Can't you see the BIOS screen? , or a Dell LOGO?

It is when you see this BIOS or Dell logo Screen that you Need to:
  • PRESS F8
  • Press F8
  • Press F8, again, and again right when your computer turns on.
Then You should be brought to the Window that allows you to boot into SAFE MODE, DO NoT PICK SAFE MODE.

Pick: ------------ENABLE VGA (basically safe mode) Only!.

Once booted, log in and change the resolution to let's say 800x600,
then restart your computer normally.

You should then be able run windows normally, (Without F8 Key) where you can then change the resolution to what you want.

IMPORTANT! Remember this, if you set your display to a resolution that it Does Not

support, and the screen goes blank. DO Not Turn off your computer: ALL YOU DO IS PRESS

the (Esc) ESCAPE Key within 15 Seconds and your monitor's resolution will be set to it's

previous state again.

I Hope This Helps.

Dell Inspiron 6000 monitor display problem


Well it is most likely a issue with the Video driver as you are able to boot to the safe mode.I would suggest going back to the safe mode and deleting the present driver for the video from the device manager.before you restart the system just download the latest version from the support.dell.com so that you can reinstall it.Also check in the graphic properties which screen is set to be the defuat.Incase still not working i would suggest reinstalling the operating system before replacing any hardware.

Monitor problem


It sounds as if you have a resolution set that the display does not support. Restart your machine in safe/VGA mode by holding down F8 while the machine boots. Once in safe mode, set the resolution (Right click--> properties--> Settings--> Screen Resolution) to one that your display supports.
