This can generally be fixed by adjusting the screen resolution in the display properties. Adjust it down, then back to where it was. If this doesn't do it, then either try a system restore, or uninstall the video drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the video and automatically reinstall the drivers. One of these will bring it back to full screen.

How do i change my pictures to fit my laptop screen


Please give more details on what you are trying to do.

If you want to take a picture and make it the total size of your screen as the background of your screen, then just right click on the picture and select Set as Desktop Background. If the size is not what you want then go into the display properties and select the Desktop tab and change the Position to be Stretch. Stretch will fill the whole screen with the picture. Tile will fill the whole screen with multiple little pictures. Center will put the picture in the middle of the screen.

To get to the display properties click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization.

You can also get the display properties by Right Click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties.

How do I hook up my lap top to another monitor. pressing FN and F4 doesn't seem to work or I'm doing something wrong.


Most laptops have an auxilliary video output, usually a VGA port (usually the color is blue with 15 tiny holes) on the side or an HDMI port. You can connect a monitor through these ports, and the display that should show on the laptop's lcd will be also displayed on the monitor.

How should i connect a monitor to dell inspiron 1300 laptop


Hi

Please follow these steps

1) Purchase a VGA cable (these can be purchased from any good PC shop)
2) Plug one end into the VGA connector on your laptop usually will have 15 pins sticking ut on the back of your laptop
3) Plug the other end into the Monitor
4) On your laptop press the fn key and F8 key (or the F key which has a picture of 2 monitors above it) - this will transfer the display from the laptop to the external monitor
5) enjoy :)

Splitted and cloned display


When Windows displays the "wallpaper", it has the option to "tile" a picture, e.g., display the picture, like pieces of tile on a floor, as many times as necessary, in order to "fill" the screen.

Change the wallpaper setting to "center" or to "stretch".

While play a game (red alert 2) the game screen does not fill to the edge of the monitor like it should. There is a black border all the way around.


Hey

its a very simple and easy to solve problem. The display driver is not set to scale the picture to full monitor. instead it shows it on the center you have two options

1. change the resolution in red alert 2 to higher (1024x768)
2. or find from your display properties -> advanced -> scaleing settings. the picture needs to be scaled to full screen instead of shown on the center.

it is somewhere in the settings, I don't know exactly where because it varies from laptop to laptop.

go and try to find it, if you really can't find it we can do a remote support session and I'll fix it for you.

Thanks and good luck.

No Display, monitor won't come on.


hi try this or the site below
Monitor Problems:

THE COMPUTERS SEEMS TO BE WORKING, BUT THE SCREEN IS BLANK.
- Check the monitor if turned on.
- Check all the LED power on the monitor, if it has one.
- Adjust brightness and contrast controls all the way to the maximum.
- Check the video cable from the monitor to the computer to be sure if it is properly connected.
- Check the power cable. If it is connected properly at both ends.
- Try different monitor on your computer. If it does not work, the display card is likely at fault. Replace the display card.
- Try your monitor on a different computer. If it does not work, replace the monitor or have it repaired by a trained technician.

COMPUTER BOOTS, BUT DISPLAYS “JUNK” ON THE SCREEN
- It may be that the display card is defective. Try a different card. If it works the first card may be bad.
- Try the suspected bad card on another computer. If it displays the same thing it is conclusive that the card is bad.

DISPLAY IS DIM, OVERLY BRIGHT, OR BLURRY, OR UNPLEASANT.DISPLAY IS OFF CENTER. LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE OF MONITOR IS OBSCURED.
- Try adjusting the control knobs located on either the front or back of the monitor. It maybe necessary o open the monitors casing to get the proper adjustment controls. In this case be very careful because there are high voltages in the monitor.
THE VIDEO DISPLAY FADES AND BRIGHTENS, OR IS WARY.
- The voltage may be fluctuating due to so many appliances or electric devices on he same branch circuit.
- Turn off other appliances and peripherals, such as printers, external modem, refrigerator, microwave oven, transformer, etc. and see if that solves the problem. If the problem persists, try swapping out the display cards. If changing the monitor solved the problem, repair or replace the monitor.
IMAGE IS NOT STRAIGHT ACROSS THE SCREEN
- If the monitor is still under warranty, bring it back to the dealer for adjustment. If the you want to do it your self, bare in mind that this is potentially dangerous procedure because it must be done while he monitor is on and there is very high voltages around the picture tube.
WARNING: THIS IS A DANGEROUS PROCEDURE!!!
- Open the monitor casing and loosen the clamp holding he coils around he picture tube. You can loosen them (usually there’s a wing nut) and a rotate the coil assembly until the picture strengthens.

No picture


If you mean you hooked up an external monitor and you want to see the display there. Well there should be a Fn key combo to toggle the displays. It should be one of the keys that looks like a monitor plus the Fn key at the same time. Otherwise go into the Control Panel -> Display -> Settings and you can switch to the other monitor there. Hope this helps.
