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.

How do I change my computer monitor to 1680 x 1050?


First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig. below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

xp-screen-resolution-1.gif

The areas worth noting are: google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.
Changing the ResolutionTo change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.

I erased my hard drive because of a virus problem. I installed windowsXP with a CD I bought from Compusa. It installed OK but the resolution is not adjustable and it is set at 640X480. At this value...


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.

Had a power outage when it came back on the monitor font and resoultion if huge I tried to change the pixels but couldn't


you can change the resolution from the display properties of your computer.

if you're using windows xp:

right-click on desktop > properties > settings. then try to change the resolution.

if you're using windows vista/7

right-click on desktop > screen resolution then change the settings.

**if nothing happens.

check the software of your graphics/video card (nvidia etc.) i believe there is an option there where-in you can change the resolution of you computer. check if it works.

** if nothing happens

check if the driver software is installed.

for windows xp:

right-click on my computer > properties > hardware then click on device manager.

for windows vista/7:

right-click on computer > properties > device manager (left side of the window.)

when you're at device manager window, check if there's any question marks. if there is. re-install the driver and see if it works.

let me know if it solved the problem.

I have a dell with windows vista. the monitor is 20 or 21 inches wide screen. I recently had a friend try to install windows xp but at the last attempt he tried to reformat my computer & install it xp...


You can adjust the screen resolution to increase the size of the image to fill the screen.
Go to the Control Panel - Display - Settings and adjust the screen resolution to 1280 X 1200 pixels. If this still doesn't fill the screen then increase it further say 1600 X 1200 pixels even higher if necessary.
