Windows 7 wouldn't detect 1600x900 resolution after installed and uninstalled magictune premium, tried reinstalling windows, updating driver (Ati 2600 pro; ati catalyst 10.2), update monitor driver from...


Try setting your color depth to 16 bit first then 1600 X 900 and try a reboot to see if it stays. Use only the windows display manager to do this, not the catalyst control. If the resolutions stays you can try setting it back to 32 bit and saving. The true max settings will appear in your windows display manager, and not always in third party display management software.
Trust that before you trust Catalyst or magictune.
Remember not to force the resolution above what windows considers safe, even if you know the monitor can handle it. Also bear in mind that Win7 is not fully ready for some things yet, even if Microsoft says it is.
I never trust a new Microsoft OS to be fully compatible with anything, no matter what the press statements report. So far this has kept me from destroying many components that may have otherwise become damaged or corrupted.

    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.

    I'm Having problem with Vista, not detecting Pen Drive


    Unplug the pen drive before booting (newer laptops support booting from a USB drive, and they restore your "healthy restore point".

    Format the Pen drive from Disk Management (right click on computer, choose manage, select Disk Management) to 32 bit fat, this leaves it compatible with Windows 98 SE, but the 16 Bit seems to give Vista fits. Good luck.
