Question about HP Compaq nc6320 Notebook
Ever since i installed windows XP sp2 the screen resolution is stuck on 1400 x 1050 pixels. If i try to change by going into the display settings the display and icons get very blurry even on restart.I have tried to search for a new display driver but it says that i have the latest one installed. Can u help me out>
Hi, Your laptop uses the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 video engine, when you installed XP SP2, Microsoft installed its own version of the latest drivers. Perhaps you can try using the manufacturer's driver and not MS. Go to Intel website and download their drivers. (http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/gma950/index.htm) Of course you have to create a restore point so that you can roll back in case if does not do the job. On some config/install I've done in the past, an older version of the drivers works better than the latest. At other times, the motherboard's AGP port and chipset (specially Intel) have likewise to be installed. Good luck and kind regards.

The hardest problem with labtops is finding what exactly what kind of video card is in there. You need to check all documents you receieved with your computer. If you right click my computer and hit properties, hardware tab, device manager. Look under display adaptors to hopefully find the name of the card, and its manufacturer(Nvidia, or Radeon). Look up the manufacturer like (Nvidia, or Radeon) on the web. And check for new drivers.) If its clear on one resolution, thats pretty much proof that there is nothing physically wrong with the monitor, so that leaves the drivers.

1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel window, open Display.
Note: In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
3. In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.
4. Locate the Screen resolution slider on the left-hand side of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is 800 by 600 pixels or 1024 by 768 pixels, possibly higher if you're using a 19" or larger monitor. The "best" setting is highly subjective to your personal preferences.
Note: Some types of software require the screen resolution settings to be set at a specific size. If you receive errors when opening certain software titles be sure to make any changes here as necessary.
