Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Doesn't rotate and doesn't go into high resolution

When I rotate it nothing happens and I can't go above 1024x768. EzTune 1.54 is running and this computer is a very late model Compaq laptop (A931NR) with an intel graphics chipset. All the buttons on EzTune are grayed out except options and help. In other words, the monitor is not communicating back to the graphics card or EzTune just thinks it's not. This has happened on every computer I ever used it with - wish I hadn't bought this monitor.

Anyone else having this problem? Solution?

Can anyone identify this PC Wallpaper


that's probably that your wallpaper isn't fit with your monitor resolution,for example,if your wallpaper size is 1280x1024 but your screen resolution (size) is 1024x768,it doesn't fit your screen and the wallpaper will only show half or even less
to check your current resolution,click
Start->Control Panel->click Appearance and Personalization->Click "adjust screen resolution" on the Display categories
you can see your current resolution and also you can set your resolution
To check the picture resolution,right click on the picture,select properties,click the Summary tab,and it doesn't show the resolution, click Advanced on the Summary tab
But I suggest you to download the wallpaper with a fit size instead of changing the screen resolution,because too high resolution will make your screen goes black
geez,i'm so sorry for my poor english
please rate this solution if it's work and let me know if you still has a problem.and thanks for using Fixya!

Have you tried decreasing the resolution of the computer?

Please help.. my monitor has no display and my don't even beep. the LED in the monitor turns back to orange after few seconds. cpu, disk drives and ram are working..


This is one of the serious problem that arises because if you set your monitor with a high resolution with high frequency, then the monitor doesn't display anything as it's frequency is out of the rang or limit of the monitor's actual resolution capacity. Each monitor will have a limit of max frequency that is said to be the Refresh rate (for each and every resolution setting the display is refreshed.) When high resolution is set with high frequency that is not supported by the monitor, it then display a message like "frequency out of range". If you press ESC key within the few seconds of this setting, it will revert back to its initial resolution. But if you continued with the setting of same High resolution with High frequency, the monitor is not going to display anything because its frequency is out of the range. Most of old monitors like CRT's etc doesn't support 1024×768 at a refresh rate greater than 60Hz.

Windows XP SP3 does not recognize the screen size of 1440x900, or any resolution other than 1024x768/800x600 It's a Westinghouse L1975NW, running off an Intel 945 Express Chipset


Problem might be with your graphics drivers
Confirm by following process
Right click on my computer and then click on Manage.
then Choose device manager from left panel of the window
then list of hardware will appear.
if there is exclamatory mark over your graphics drivers then right click on it and then click on update device software
if it doesn't work then install it from your drivers disk, you got it with your motherboard.

Hi, i own compaq presario CQ42 369TU laptop, how do i increase my screen resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 or higher ?


For Windows XP...

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.

If you cannot set it any higher than 1024x768 and you have already installed the video drivers, that is as high as it can go for your hardware.

Obviously the graphics card is not capable of supporting the resolution you have set so it go's blank.
Although you can set the resolution via the computer the system will not change it back when you save that setting even though you see nothing, the computer doesn’t know you can’t see anything.
You need to go into the monitors menu (a button on the monitor front panel) and set it back to a supported resolution or default.
Start at 600x800.
Once you see an image on the monitor right click the desktop go to properties then settings and slid the screen resolution bar to the right to a resolution that suits you don’t go to high or you will get the same problem.
1024x768 would probably suit you.
Hope this helps.
