We can't get our screen resolution back to what it was (1024x768) it changed when a game being played ended. It runs on 800x600 at the moment and everything is too big.

First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

We can't get our screen - 0643c0b.gif

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box (see left), if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

Do you see a BIOS screen before the PC loads Windows?

Power off and complete a cold boot from switch. If you still can't see the BIOS screen then check that you have plugged the cable into the right socket. Some PC's have on-board outputs and when a High End Graphic card is installed these are disabled by default. Look at the pins in the VGA plug for bent pins.

If you see the BIOS and then lose screen then the refesh rate or screen resolution is incorrect. We Windows Logo shows press the F8 key at the top of the keyboard to enter safe mode and then change the screen settings down to say 800x600 or 1024x768 to start with. Also make sure that the screen refresh is in 60 hz to start with at these resolutions.

It has something to do with your screen resolution. Maybe the games resolution is higher that what your monitor can use. Under your game settings, look for Options> Video> Resoltion, set it to 800x600 and try to play again. If it works, then adjust it to a higher resolution.

Bought new aoc monitor and plugged in and all I get a floating screen safer saying "input not support".


Your display resolution is set to something outside the range your AOC supports.

Start Windows in VGA mode (pick that option from the startup menu you get when you press F8 after the manufacturer's logo comes when you turn the computer on). Then set the display mode to 16-bit color and 800X600 resolution. This will allow Windows to start up next time with settings just about every monitor can handle.

Once WIndows is up and running, make sure you change your display settings to something the monitor can handle. Specs are in the manual or on the manufacturer's website, but resolution of 1024X768 should be another safe choice. You should also think about installing any driver software supplied with the monitor.

Desk top keeps going large


There is not much that you have given us to work with here, but what i'm assuming you are describing is a resolution issue.

There are a few different resolutions that a computer will typically have depending on its age and its graphics card.
640x480
800x600
1024x768
those are the typically resolutions for a basic system, those with super graphics card can go much higher.

You first off might want to see if you just need to up the settings... you can do this by....

1. right click on any empty space on your desktop and click 'properties' on the menu that pops up.
2. click the tab that says 'settings' and it will bring you your resolutions.
3.bump it up from whatever it is set to (640x480 -> 800x600 or 800x600 -> 1024x768) then click apply.
4. a window might pop up saying it is changing your resolution and asks you if you would like to keep it the new way and it will give you 15 seconds to respond yes or no before it reverts back to the prior settings.

This should fix your problem. otherwise you may need to reinstall your graphics cards via a driver download from the manufacturers website and it should have a self-installing file that will do all of the tough work for you.

If your problem seems to have nothing to do with the possibilities I just gave you please share more details about when the problem occurs, things you have tried to do to fix it that have failed. etc.

The writing is too small for me to resd


Hold your Ctrl button down, then use your mouse scroll button to enlarge or make smaller the print on your Internet Explorer and Email pages.

You can also change the resolution on your desktop to make everything larger :
First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.
