Hi this might be a monitor resolution fault, or set incorrectly, is this xp home? or windows 7 home?, if it is a windows xp home, just right click on screen, then properties, then settings, you then can move the resolution bar up or down, i think in your case this will be down,you also can go to the advanced button, and change the Dpi once done save settings and see what happens,..if you have windows7 home, just right click on desktop, then change resolution in the menu, then drag the bar down and see how that works, and really then its a case of adjusting until you get the lines gone...hope this helps

Unable to install driver and error it says is monitor resolution atleast it should be 800*600

This sounds familiar. What you need to do is download the motherboard INF setup or the motherboard drivers as they are sometimes called. Run that and windows will then be able to identify the hardware. At that point you can run the video driver and it should now install. When it is running you can change the screen resolution to higher as well as the colours to higher.

As a word of caution sometimes the drivers that you download from the manufactuers website won't work for the first install but the ones on the cd will.

How to adjust LCD wide monitor to a higher

This error is typical of an incorrect video driver has been installed.
To check the installed video driver go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Advance button - Adapter tab. This shows the adapter/driver. If it shows VGA graphics card or not the model of your graphics card then you need to download the correct graphic/video driver and install it. You will then able to configure the display at a higher resolution and at the highest color bit (ie 32 bit if there is sufficient video RAM installed).

I have k8vmx motherboard and amd athlone processor.but my i am unable change aspect ratio of samsung synchmaster943nwx. i want to remove distortion in the display. HELP

In windows, you can't change the aspect ratio itself. You just need to change the resolution in the windows display properties to one that has the right ratio, like 1440x900 for example. In many cases, if you cannot get this resolution on the slider, its because your monitor has no drivers installed and windows limits it to "safe" resolutions. In which case, you need to either install the drivers for the monitor either from the CD that came with it, or by downloading it from the company website. If you cannot find it at all, you can also use a Microsoft Generic driver that is included in windows, in which case it usually tells you what resolution the driver you are putting in supports, it's written in the driver name.
