It could be that the screen is at the correct resolution, but the icons are just set to display larger (Vista allows this). Right-click on the desktop (NOT over any icons), and select "View". there you can select the size of the desktop icons.

    Okay, maybe I mis-understood the question. Are you saying that your screen is at the wrong resolution and the control panel isn't allowing you the option to change it?

Resolution of scanned images are pixled and horrible.


Have you tried using the "Dell All-In-One Center" that should have come on a disc with the printer/driver? Try searching for "Dell All-In-One Center" near/in the start button search. This will give you options for setting the DPI on the scan.

I m getting blurred images ,pics on my hp pavilion dv 2000 laptop when surfing internet like orkut profiles etc


Unless you're running at the display's native resolution (check the box or product literature, for your laptop probably 1280x800) you will have some blurring on photographs and other parts of the display. You will need to set your resolution to 1280x800 to see crisp photos.
To change the resolution in Vista: 1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

The screen display reset to 640x480 on startup.


Anyways, yes, the native resolution is 1280x800 at 60 Hz. Its a PnP device part of the Mobile Intel 945GM Express chipset family. Find a ATI Mobility Radeon plugin or create one. Be careful, ATI desktop drivers dosn't support offficial mobility chip (some inf entries are missing).
Start with drivers from your manufacturer. You can use ATI desktop driver files, but you have to add your hardware device number. Be aware, that's not a official solution, but this works in most cases.
Thank You

Tried hooking the computer to an external monitor. Got the welcome screen ok, then it lost sync and went black. Tried it on another plasma; same result. SVGA cable connection.


Hi there. When you connect an external display, your laptop clones your desktop to the external display, including resolution settings. First you need to check what resolution settings the plasma can display. If your laptop is set to a resolution that the external monitor can't display, then you will lose the display once the resolution settings are loaded. You can change the laptop resolution in your Display Settings.

If you don't know what settings the external monitor can display, just open your Display Settings and set your laptop resolution to 1024x768. Almost all new monitor/tv's can display it. Connect your external display, and see what happens. If it works, but the resolution doesn't look right, then just move the resolution along one more, until you find one you're comfortable with.

N.B. Some monitors/tv's "jump" resolutions. i.e. the monitor can display 1024x768, 1300x768, but not 1280x800.

Another thing to remember is that if you are running Windows Vista, you may need to check that the Windows Mobility Center recognises the external display that you are trying to use. You can find Windows Mobility Center by clicking Control Panel, then Mobile PC. It should now be listed on the screen.

Let me know how it goes, and if it works, please rate.

How do you install xp over windows vista in a lenovo x61 tablet ? I have 3 backup disc 1.a product recovery dvd 2.rescue and recovery cd 3.suppemental recovery cd . can some one tell me how to get...


If the backup and recovery disk are for that model of computer , just remove VISTA or Reformat the hard driver using software outside of Window, then reinstall all the Xp stuff, just as if you had a new hard drive. Save all personal files first, of course..

Problem with dell inspiron 6000


Reformatting drives cleans up your disc. Or shall we say when done reformatting, you started from scratch. That is if you install a fresh copy of Windows. Now, doing that, you should reinstall all the drivers needed for your laptop to have the functions working again. Your screen resolution matter, it can be 1280x800 again if you install the graphics driver of your laptop. To avoid this kind of problem again, you should install updated full version of antivirus.

Hi i want to widen my screen


The Resolution can be changed in Windows XP by minimizing all applications, right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties. In the Display Settings window go to the Settings tab. Here you can change the resolution. I think you are wanting to use a widescreen setup so going for a resolution of 1280x800 should fill your screen. Play around with the available settings to resize the screen.

If you are using MS Vista, you need to minimize all applications to the desktop, right click, select Personalize. In the Personalize Window click on Display Settings down the bottom, modify the resolution as appropriate.

Alternatively, you may be able to find the function key that did this to your resolution. Above your F1-F12 keys there should be a little picture. If you click on the [fn] key (near the Windows key) as well as one of the F1-F12 keys you can cause different functions to be performed. This may be how the resolution changed initially.

Good luck
