Right click on your Desktop wallpaper and go to Properties. You should receive a Display Properties window. Find the Settings tab. Under the Settings tab is an area for changing your screen resolution.
Alternatively, to get to Display Properties window, you can go to Start button-->Control Panel-->Display

I believe it should be similar to XP Home
On the main desktop, over no icons, click on the right mouse button and choose personalize. Then choose display settings to get to the resolution choices.

How do I get missing Icons back on my PC screen


The higher the resolution, the more likely you will be able to see your icons.
From Microsoft.com:
1. Open Display in Control Panel. 2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply. 3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment. 4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting. Note
• To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display. • A higher screen resolution reduces the size of items on your screen and increases the relative space on your desktop • You can switch your screen resolution temporarily to 640 X 480 if you have games or other programs that are set to run at that resolution. To switch, right-click the game or program (on the desktop or on the Start menu), and then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, and then select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your display reverts to its default resolution when you close the program. • Your monitor and video adapter determine how much you can change your screen resolution. You may not be able to increase the resolution above a certain level. • Changes to screen resolution affect all users that log on to the computer. • Only the recommended screen resolutions are listed. For additional settings, click the Advanced button on the Settings tab, click the Adapter tab, and then click List all Modes. Select the resolution, color level, and refresh rate you want.

Latop d620 worked ine but now screen is lack unless in safe mode


Now I don’t know how unplugging it or moving it would cause that problem but it does sound like you might have an issue with the refresh rate and or screen resolution at a setting that is to high for the screen to display (safe mode only loads windows core components and minimal set of drivers like basic vga driver for display which is why it probably works in safe mode)

If you are running windows XP then try the following:

Ok try hitting F8 key before XP logo appears for boot menu then select "enable vga mode" then after you get to a desktop go to display settings and lower the screen resolution and refresh rate setting
(refresh rate should be at 60hz) resolution could be different depending on which screen you have there... but try 1024x768 just to be safe then reboot into normal mode and see if it works and if it does then you can adjust the resolution to what it was before problem occurred

If you are running Windows Vista then boot from the Vista CD and select “repair my computer” and then “fix startup problems” and it should do it for you

My problem is the displayed windows on my monitor/screen


Press the F8 key when windows is booting up from a power off situation, select "safe Mode" you should get a Display then,(NO Video driver(except windows generic) driver is load in safe mode). Set your display to the LOWEST resolution.. Reboot. See if you have a display with the driver set Low. If so, increase the resolution on level at a time until you encounter a problem. If you do not select Yes when windows asks if you want to keep this display setting, Windows will revert back to the last setting you selected yes for.

Out of range external monitor


The max resolution supported by that LCD HDTV is 1366 x 768. If your screen resolution in XP is set higher than that, you'll run into issues. Reduce your screen resolution first, then run the nVidia multiple display setup.

Hi

It sounds like Drivers for the Video card is not loaded properly.

What is the current screen resolution?
Are you able to increase the resolution to say 800 x 600 pixel or preferably 1024 x 768 pixel?

If the current screen resolution is 640 x 480 pixel and you are unable to increase resolution to the above pixel levels, try updating Windows Drivers for your video card.
