Snow Leopard-VirtualBox-Windows 7 screen resolution

Q: Snow Leopard-VirtualBox-Windows 7 screen resolution

I purchased an Apple computer (a Macbook Pro 13") two months ago, and installed Windows 7 (run via VirtualBox) because I need to use one Windows-only software essential for my work. My problem is that I can't get the full 1280x800 resolution in Windows, as my current Windows settings offers only screen resolutions with a 4:3 aspect ratio (800x600 to 1600x1200).

Windows 7 recognizes my display as "Generic Non-Pnp monitor on Standard VGA graphics adapter". I downloaded the latest driver for Intel HD Graphics 3000, "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows 7", but the installation was not successful, showing this message: "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software".

Any advice on how can I get a 1280x800 screen resolution option? Or maybe, what exactly are the "minimum requirements" for installing the Windows 7 graphics driver for a Macbook Pro?

Host OS: Mac OS X (Snow Leopard) ver 10.6.8
VirtualBox version: 4.1.0
Windows version: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1

Thanks in advance.

Hi Protonic, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Might it be the obvious reason? You need to install VirtualBox Guest Additions for the emulated GPU to fully work. This pic is from an Ubuntu vm running on VirtualBox, but for you the procedure would be the same:

(When your Seven guest is running, install Guest Additions from vm's Device menu.)

I hope this question has a place in windows 7 forums; if not, forgive me.

I have a ASUS G72 with Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 2.53 GHz.
I have one HDD and 4 partitions in it(c is windows 7 home premium x64, d is windows 7 ultimate x64, e is empty and i am planning to install snow leopard on e and f is just my important files.).

my dvd writer seems to be only compatible with dvd + r dl.

i have a 8 gb microsd (SD) card.

as i said, i want to install snow leopard on e: and i want to have triple boot (windows 7 home premium x64, windows 7 ultimate x64 and snow leopard).

simply, just with a windows pc (notebook that is), how can i install snow leopard by the 8 gb SD or by dvd + r dl and how can i make a triple boot?

Note: Snow Leopard Installation DVD is 6 GB so it requires a DL DVD if being installed from DVD, the thing is -for some reason- people are advising DVD - R DL.

A:Installation of Snow Leopard and Triple Boot(Windows + Windows + Snow)

I see several things wrong here:

1. You're hard drive is what many, including me, would call over-partitioned.
2. There's absolutely no reason to set up a multi-boot system with the same OS (Two Windows x64 installs).
3. OSX can only legally be installed on a Mac, so these topics aren't allowed on forums like these.

My Win7 x64 machine can see other machines on the LAN (some running Win7 and some XP), but can't see my Mac Snow Leopard machine. However, the Mac can see the Win7 machine. (Also, the Win7 box can see a Win7 virtual machine running in VMware Fusion on the Mac.)

Note that I've tried following these instructions (posted in several places), but they don't resolve the problem:
Goto Start Menu
Search for: security
Click on Local Security Policy
Goto Local Policies> Security Options
Double Click on Network security: LAN Manager Authentication
Change level to: Send LM # LTLM Responses
Then, scroll down to Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
De-select Require 128-bit encryption
Hit OK
Also, I've checked to be sure that Mac and the Win7 box are both using the same workgroup (WORKGROUP).

Any other suggestions?

After inserting the snow leopard disk, I click set-up; a message pops up saying,"windows installer installation wrapper: This package requires a newer version of windows installer. Do you want to update?". If I click no, then the set-up is cancelled. If I click yes, then it says the required source 'UPDATE' is missing. This leads to my second problem.

Ok, my situation is this: for my studies in Brussels, they all use mac os x. I have a compaq laptop with an upgrade from vista on it (so now win7 ultimate). I do NOT want to buy a new macintosh laptop because i do not want to ruin my savers (like 900 euro's)...

Martin,
Windows is based off of MBR as to were OsX is based of GUID boot loaders.
Your best bet is to use a VM.

And on the legal side your breaking the EULA for OsX it states that it can only be used on apple hardware + you are trying to perform a fresh install from an upgrade another legal issue.

So I got Windows 7 on my pc. But I want to have both snow leopard and Windows 7. I already have the cd of OS X and I created an empty partition for it to go on. Its 70gb and I think it will definitely be enough room. Only I am hesitating on doing this because all tutorials show that I need to Install OS X first and than install Windows 7. Im not going to go through that all again. Ive reinstalled windows 7 to many times and im not going to do it again. Can I install OS x while I have my windows7 on my pc. Can I just install it and access windows 7. Cause Im affraid of installing os x and than that I cant access my windows 7 anymore. I was thinking that maybe I could just go to the boot menu when starting up my pc and than select from what drive I want to boot, so the windows 7. Thanks

A:Dual Boot Windows 7 with OS X Snow Leopard

Found this elsewhere:

All you need to do is first , install Windows 7. Then, create a new partition for your osx within Windows 7 , format it as fat32 or ntfs and set to to be "active".

Then run the osx installation and before you start the install, go to Utilities and "disk utility" , select the partition you created from Windows 7 and format it as Journaled (don't delete it!).

Then, install as you would normally, selecting this partition as your installation target. (don't forget to customize your OSX installation with the necessary drivers for you system.)

After installation is complete, you will need to repair your Windows 7 boot loader, cause you probably won't be able to boot Windows 7.
Insert the Windows 7 installation DVD, at the first installation screen select your language etc, and at the second screen select "repair computer".
This will bring the Windows 7 boot loader back, so you can boot Windows 7.

Now you won't be able to load osx!
So boot in Windows 7, and unhide your hidden 200MB partition:

1. In disk management, assign a drive letter for your 200MB hidden partition.

2.Download EasyBCD (Download EasyBCD 2.0.2 - NeoSmart Technologies) and add a new boot entry, select MacOS, Generic X86, Add, Save. That's it.

You now have dual boot with Windows 7 and OSX

Hi,

Normally I try not to upgrade the OS of my machines until I buy a new one. The reason is that I use it as a development environment and in the past, I have always had to tweak the dev. env. after upgrading besides having to get used to things that are different -- and there always are differences. Also in the past my experience is that the new OS requires more resources and using it on the old machine makes it run slower.

However, my iPad Mini is now upgraded to ios 9.1 and it no longer talks to the iTunes on the iMac. It tells me I need a later vsn of iTunes. When I try to download that, it tells me I need to upgrade the OS.

So my questions are these:

1. Can I upgrade directly from OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) directly to the latest vsn of El Capitan?

2. Will the OS upgrade automatically upgrade software like iTunes?

3. What will happen to 3rd party applications that I have in the Applications folder such as Hand Brake, Open Office, Micorsoft Office, and the like?

4. Any prediction for how much I will need to reinstall in my dev env which uses Apache, PHP, MySQL, Perl, Text Wrangler and NetBeans?

Thanks for you help.

Hello.

So I'm a computer engineering student and I would love to be able to dual-boot Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) on my Dell computer. However, I'm worried things will go terribly wrong and I'll end up screwing my computer up. I'm no expert (yet) when it comes to installation of OS's, partitioning, etc., but I'm pretty sure I could figure most of it out... if I had a guide.

Does anyone have/has anyone made a step-by-step Win7/OS X dual-boot procedure that is relatively simple to understand?

* As a note: I will be installing Windows 7 from a CD in about a week when I delete my Vista partition (after backing up all of my files). I'm assuming I would have to order Snow Leopard (a single use license) in order to install it!

Snow Leopard vs. Win 7: Battle Begins August 28


Apple's latest operating system update, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, is ready to roll on August 28, and while Apple says the new OS is "refined, not reinvented," it'll become the de facto competitor to Microsoft Windows 7 come October. We love a good argument, so here's your fodder: five innovations for each OS being touted by their respective makers.

Mac OSX Snow Leopard:
Exposť Interactivity: The feature that shows all windows together is no longer a simple means for switching among them. It will be possible to drag content fromsnow leopard one previewed window to the other. Exposť will also work for individual applications by clicking and holding their icons in the dock. As a workaround for the miniscule preview windows in the dock, these improvements aren't bad.

Smart Services: Control-clickers will delight in new context-sensitive menus that appear when you perform the Windows-equivalent of a right click. For instance, highlighting and control-clicking text in a Web browser lets you send the text to an e-mail or import it to iTunes as a spoken word track.

Smaller Install: Pony up the $29 to upgrade to Snow Leopard, and you'll get 7 GB of your hard drive back. That's not a feature, per se, but it's certainly an innovation. The last thing we want is an operating system that's continually gaining weight.

First: system Win 7 Professional 64 bit, Dell desktop.

Problem: After booting up, and computer running for various time intervals, the system would seemingly crash by first going to a screen with multi-colored "confetti" then go totally black. I then had to cut power to computer to shut it down since I did not have a screen to shut it down in the regular manner.

I did everything I could think of, scans with Spybot, Norton, Malware Bytes, Registry scans, looked in Device Manager for ?? and !! (none). Started in Safe Mode and ran hardware checks via the old DOS screens, downloaded a hardware checker from Dell -- negative findings. Checked Crashed Logs to see if problem could be found, didn't see anything incriminating. Posted notes on boards, no help worked. In short, I was frustrated as I'm usually able to fix computer problems myself with the help of online forums. Obviously, when the problem occurred (black screen), I could not check the system during the event.

Dear All, Good day. I have a problem with my Lenovo z50(Windows 10 - 8GB RAM - i5 Intel - Nvidia GeForce ). It appeared "snow" when I'm playing games with GPU.  Previously there is no issue. Starting 1 month ago after my GPU auto updated, when I play games with my GPU, sometimes the snow will appear.  Originally I thought it was because of too heat or too many dust. But I already did the cleaning and purchased a cooler pad, it is still the same. I thought it might be my GPU problem, hence, I duplicated my screen to an extenal monitor. The monitor screen is working fine, but my laptop screen was not. And now, after I updated to Windows 10 (Originally is Windows 8.1) even I did not play any game or GPU is not being used, but only loaded into my Windows, (by default, it will use Intel integrated graphic processor), the snow is also appearing. My laptop is purchased since end of 2014.

I decided to turn it down, and power it back up to see if it'd do anything different. When I opened it up, the red snow was still there, and there were messages saying "suchandsuch.exe (don't remember the exact names it used) is a virus and is attempting to send your credit card info to wherever." They looked like the kind that come from spam or pop-up ads, and I wasn't connected to any form of internet at the time, but I decided to shut down again until I had another computer around, to post info while things were happening. So I get on here from my desktop, sign up(I'm new. : D Hi guys.), and turn on my laptop... and now I'm treated to a blank screen, with the start-up noises still playing. I'll also repost my specs if it's easier to see here than on the description I put in on sign-up. Thanks!

*edit* I now realize there is a button to show you guys what I put in for specs.

Hi,

I went to load my computer last night and my computer wouldn't load. It said there was a problem and recommended a system repair. I did this and it then went to another screen saying it needed to check the c drive to make sure that it was consitent with the other drivers. When that was complete i could then enter my password and log in. When i did that i went to the internet then my screen started to fade to a snow white screen. My PC then froze. I switched it off and went throught the same process as above. This time i started to do a virus scan on my pc and halfway through the scan my pc froze again and couldn't complete the scan. I need help please!! It is happening whether i am on the internet or not and i don't have any other applications open.

It may very well be memory and we can test for that, but we have to do the virus and malware scan first. Try in safe mode

If that is negative download and perform the memtest86.

Hello Robin,

While running the Windows 8 VM in VirtualBox, you should be able to open the desktop from the Metro "Start" screen to change the screen resolution to a higher resolution the same way as in Windows 7 to have the VirtualBox window be larger.

Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I looked around a little and found one other thread with a similar question, but the question wasn't really answered. I can't find anything on the net that doesn't confuse me so bad it makes my head hurt, so I thought I'd try asking here. Thanks in advance for any answers I get.

I will try and be as thorough as possible, although the resulting question will be simple. I'll start out with why I am asking the question to begin with.

So I am trying to play a game I used to play nearly ten years ago. It's a free online game called Continuum/Subspace and there are user created "zones" or variations of the game within the game (if that makes sense). I play in a zone called Trench Wars. It's a top down game, meaning you are looking down at your ship as if from above and the screen scrolls as you move to reveal more of the area (map) you are playing in. You are in a spaceship of your choice with varying weapons for each ship. The game requires aiming at your enemies before firing at them and anticipating their moves.

Well I noticed that playing at a higher resolution allows you to see more of your immediate area and expands your view of the map. It works just like your desktop in essence. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons, but the more space you have. In the game, the higher the resolution, the smaller the ships are, but you can see more space around you. Obviously, this would give an advantage to anyone playing ... Read more

Simple answer is: you can not go over the native resolution of LCD panel because its physical thing for each pixel lcd panel has a cell you can not have more pixels than there is physical pixels in that panel.

smaller than native resolutions achieved by grouping more than one cell to form pixel thats why non native resolution on lcd sometimes gets blurry or edgy

One thing that drove me crazy when using windows vs say a mac is that all mac programs use the search, spotlight feature really well.

For example, when launching UNISON, a usenet program for Apple OS, and you typed "shooter" you would instantly get every instance of the word "shooter" in a matter of seconds. On Vista, it was a completely different story. Using Forte Free agent, it could take up to 10 minutes, sometimes longer, as it searched out every instance of "shooter" before showing you all the hits/posts that you were looking for.

Just wondering if the file indexing/search has changed in Windows 7 compared to Vista and if developers would embrace this if it works.

Would also like information on any usenet programs for windows 7 that may work.

Let me re-phrase - does anyone know if the Windows 7 architecture for searching has been updated? In Vista it took a while to span, search across all discs and am wondering if search had been updated.

I am confused by the screen resolution of my W7 Media Centre PC. I'm running Win 7 Pro with a 16:9 widescreen monitor which claims to have a native resolution of 1366 x 768. I've never been able to set that in Windows or the video driver.

7MC has the monitor set to 1024 x 768 (4:3) but nevertheless shows a fullscreen image with a 16:9 aspect ratio and works perfectly.

When I first installed Win 7 the desktop was also set to 1024 x 768 but the image was stretched horizontally so that it filled the widescreen but was horribly distorted.

I discovered that setting the Windows desktop to 1148 x 648 (16:9) almost fills the whole display, just leaving thin black lines on either side and filling it vertically. As this is the correct aspect ratio I was happy to live with the slight reduction in size. 7MC is unaffected and continues using the whole screen at, presumably, some secret alternative to 1024 x 768.

Since the 648 vertical resolution is being stretched to 768 to occupy the full height of the monitor I presume the 1148 horizontal resolution is being stretched by the same factor. This would make the horizontal resolution 1361, very close to the 1366 x 768 the monitor wants.

I took screenshots of both the MCE screen and the Windows desktop, expecting that the image dimensions would be related to one of the preceding resolutions. However, they are both 1952 x 648, with the actual screen image in the left hand 1148 x 648 area and an empty desktop section to the righ... Read more

Hey guys,

So basically, I've had Windows 7 for about a year, and everything has been running just smoothly. But, of course, something buggy happens--yesterday, I lost my highest screen resolution setting. I have an Acer X233h monitor, which is about 23", so I've been using the 1900x1200 setting. Everything looked really nice and crisp, but now I'm at the 1600x1200 setting and that's the highest that my computer is letting me go! Now the screen feels too wide, and any and all text is distorted (squashed).

I've tried rebooting multiple times and messing with the ?Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" option under the advance settings tab, but with no avail. Anyone know how I can get my screen resolution back to the way it was? Thanks!

A:Windows 7 Screen Resolution

Hi sncalbert


Possibly the easiest fix might be to run a System Restore, using a restore point from a few days ago. We just had a Windows Patch Tuesday recently, I'm sure you have a restore point from then. That should do it. You could then grab your Security Updates with a visit to Windows Update.

Should that not work, or should you prefer to try a different route - you could reinstall your video driver, or update it to the latest version. That might or might not help. You could also try removing your monitor from Device Manager, and letting Windows re-detect it.

Interestingly enough, the specifications that I see for your model online suggest that it's native resolution is 1920x1080 - so that's the resolution you'll want to aim for. Here's the link to the Acer page for "Monitor drivers" for your model (I'll assume it's just an .inf file with the native & supported range of resolutions -- interesting, though, that they don't mention Win7 64-bit in their list of operating systems) --- Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Monitor / X Series / X233H

It shouldn't hurt to try the Acer file, but if your video card driver doesn't support 1920x1080, then 1900x1200 is "close enough for jazz".

Let us know if none of the above helps, and we'll look for another solution.

I want to change the screen resolution from 1366x768 (native resolution) to a smaller one such as 800x480.
This is because when I play PC games, I run them in lower resolutions like 800x600 or 800x480 so that they will run faster.
On top of that, I run them in windowed mode, so that I can switch between my web browser and the game without having to wait in a black screen every time it goes full screen again (for example Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2).
But the game's window is in 800x480 resolution, and it only takes up that much space. I can't resize it but I can move it around. Like to the center.
But when I change my desktop resolution to a smaller resolution (using ATI Catalyst or desktop properties) it doesn't get stretched out. It just makes it a smaller image in the middle of my monitor with black edges around it.
I want it so that I have a smaller resolution so that my windowed game will be stretched out,so its basically full screen, but not full screen. If I adjust the in game resolution, it will be a bigger window, but it makes it more laggy for me, which is why i made it a low resolution. Basically I want to have a low resolution (so its fast), windowed mode (for easy switching windows) and it covers 90% of the screen.

Also, is there any zoom tool that will let me zoom in my monitor so that it will mimic a full screen?

After making the terrible mistake of upgrading to 8.1, the resolution of almost all my programs are messed up. They look very blurry, as if they're being stretched or something. I'm using a Lenovo Ideapad Y510P with screen resolution 1920x1080. The only method to correct this, that I found so far, is to go to every single .exe's properties and disable "disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Yes I know I can go to control panel and set a resolution for all programs at 100%, but that will make the text on the programs way too tiny (including Windows UI, like icons, start menu, etc) that they're barely readable, way smaller than Windows 8.0's size. The correct size for the UI is supposed to be about 125% scaling, comparing to Windows 8.0, which is a size I'm comfortable with. But if I set the scaling in display options to 125%, then all my programs will be blurred again.
Does anyone know how I can fix this? It's getting really frustrating.

Hello! Have been trying to find a solution to this, but so far I found nothing to help me (either I'm not looking in the right places).

I've recently upgraded from Windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit, however, the native screen resolution of 1366x768 doesn't stretch on the whole screen. I have two black bars on the left and the right side of the screen and I'm not sure what else to do at this point. On Windows XP I had no such problem.

I've tried the auto setting of the monitor, changed the screen resolution from the control panel, but neither helped much. I think(?) all the drivers have been installed (father dealt with these and he didn't know how to fix this screen resolution problem either).

Also, noticed that in most of the games the screen resolution changes and fits the screen perfectly.

The monitor is a Philips LCD 192E with a native resolution of 1366x768 @ 60Hz.

I recently bought a 19" LCD monitor (widescreen 16:10, since there are very few 4:3 options), at 1440X900. Windows desktop is fine, and most applications have no problem. Windows splash screen is pretty obviously under-resolutioned (horribly pixellated - possibly 800X600), and then stretched for the screen resolution.

Here's where it gets interesting: I installed SP3 recently, and after the installation, SP3 rebooted my PC. While it was rebooting, the splash screen was a perfect, non-pixellated or stretched image (possibly 1440X900. After finishing updates, I logged out. The next day, when I logged in, the splash screen was back to its low, stretched version.

I was hoping to find out how I can make the perfect image, the permanent splash screen (without the use of a 3rd party TSR program, since I know that Windows itself is capable of providing such a thing).

For years I have been running Windows XP on my desktop PC and my monitor is an LG Flat Screen LED W86 Series one. The current resolution that I have set is 1600 x 900 and I find it to be the ideal resolution for me.

However recently I also purchased a Dell Latitude E5420 laptop running Windows 7. I connected it to my monitor and here is the problem:

-As long as the lid of the laptop is open, the maximum resolution that I can get is 1366 x 768. This makes everything appear too large on my LED screen.

-As soon as I close the lid of my laptop (I have set it to neither shut down nor sleep when I do that), the resolution automatically changes to 1920 x 1080. Now everything appears too small. If I lower the resolution to the next two options, everything gets stretched out horizontally. There is no option for 1600 x 900.

So my question is: How do I set my screen resolution to 1600 x 900 on Windows 7?

P.S: I have already updated all the drivers and it didn't help. I have also tried every cable possible (VGA, DVI,HDMI).

A:Windows 7 Screen Resolution Problem

It may not be highlighted, but I will bet there are settings that show up when you stop on them though 900X1600 sounds like a settings for other than a laptop screen. I believe you want 900 X 1440.

I have trouble setting correct display resolution with LCD monitor LG Flatron W1934S under 32-bit Windows 7.

When I bought it and visited LG site for drivers I was redirected to the local, ukrainian version of the site and found that my model is absent. Hard to believe, but see for youself. I tried picking other monitor with the same resolution from list suggested by Windows 7 driver installation utility and missed. But when I removed wrong driver I found out that resolution adjustment utility from Control Panel still thinks I have LT1734!

Then I just added needed resolution manually using Nvidia Control Panel and things were okay for some time.

Recently I was forced to downgrade video card drivers from 197.45 to 196.34 because of the new version being buggy.

And this version is shipped without Nvidia Control Panel, so I am no longer able to configure resolution manually.

Installing correct display driver from US version of the site did not help, since resolution utility still thinks I have LT1734 and nothing I tried, like deleting device from the system, rolling back or removing driver could not convince it otherwise.

I have tried googling and else, but it did not help.

Any suggestions?

Hello! Have been trying to find a solution to this, but so far I found nothing to help me (either I'm not looking in the right places).

I've recently upgraded from Windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit, however, the native screen resolution of 1366x768 doesn't stretch on the whole screen. I have two black bars on the left and the right side of the screen and I'm not sure what else to do at this point. On Windows XP I had no such problem.

I've tried the auto setting of the monitor, changed the screen resolution from the control panel, but neither helped much. I think(?) all the drivers have been installed (father dealt with these and he didn't know how to fix this screen resolution problem either).

Also, noticed that in most of the games the screen resolution changes and fits the screen perfectly.

The monitor is a Philips LCD 192E with a native resolution of 1366x768 @ 60Hz.
Additional info:
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 64 bit
Pentium(R) Dual-Core E5300
4 GB RAM
NVIDIA Geforce 210

A:Incorrect screen resolution on Windows 7

It would say that both are not compatible, somewhat.
If you ever use laptop, there should not have this display problem.
That is to say that laptop screen is customize correctly according to match.

There is nothing much can be done.
Just think that a "big size + fat" passenger cannot fit properly to 1 economy seat of airplane.
Either provide the passenger a bigger/wider seat or let the passenger take 2 economy seats.
But with wider seat, it can be just fitting = consider this a laptop.
Or occupy 2 seats, there will be some space on both sides = this is happen to you, now.

Hello, I'm not sure that this is the right forum for this question so please bare with me.

I built a PC not long ago and I wanted to connect my Toshiba Regza TV to it as a display.
I used a DVI to HDMI cable to connect the PC to the TV. The problem is that that the display shows the OS in a small 700x900 px square, as the following image demonstrates: pic1.jpg . Also, when I try to change the resolution, the options are all greyed.

When I use a HDMI to HDMI for the connection, the OS is shown bigger then the display, as you can see here:
pic2.jpg .

I want to mark that I'm using Intel Core i5 (which has Intel Graphics HD). I have no other display card.

What is causing this problem and how can I solve it? Thanks.

A:Cannot change screen resolution on Windows 8

I would guess that the problem is on the TV end, not the computer. You might want to delve into your TV settings and see what PC connection settings it has. You also may have an issue with the TV resolution and the PC resolution not matching up. This happened to me on my previous laptop (gave me black bars on the side) and there wasn't anything I could do about it.

Best of luck.

Since installing Windows 7 I have had no problems with anything except this one small thing,
When I open/run most programs they all open correctly and fit to the screen properly.

But A couple of certain games and applications that I use regularly open with such a small screen that they are almost un-usable, The main problem seems to be with the width of the display, I have tried changing the main resolution of the screen but this doesn't remedy the problem, With most applications and games I can change the resolution from within them but this is not ideal as it stretches the image and the screens just dont look right and I also don't have any option to do this at all in one certain game that I use regularly when I am on my other computer which uses Windows Vista and this problem doesnt happen at all so I am guessing that this must be a Win 7 problem.

I am not sure but I think I may need to actually install a proper monitor driver to cure this problem as upon checking in both windows 7 and windows Vista both computers are using a generic video driver.

I have currently got a 22 inch Advent P 22 WH monitor on both computers and even when I had Vista running on this computer I was not experiencing this problem at all.

I have tried searching for a specific driver for this monitor but cannot seem to find one anywhere as of yet, If this is likely to be the problem I would appreciate it if someone could help me in finding a driver for my monitor.

Now, every time I boot the computer, my monitor is no longer recognised and I get a 'generic' pnp adapter showing poor resolution. When I click on Change Resolution and then 'Detect', it immediately finds the correct monitor and resets the resolution to the right (high) settings, but 'Apply' is greyed-out and on rebooting, the same low resolution problem recurs.....

Is there any way to 'force' Windows 7 to remember the monitor and correct settings, or force it to auto-detect the monitor on start-up?

The Windows XP on my 5 year old Dell Inspiron 5160 is growing increasingly unstable. About 3 months ago, I had to boot from the installation CD to repair an error related to a Service pack 3 abnormaility related to Internet Explorer 8. The most recent problem with the instability--which also seems to be realted to IE8 is that the screen resolution changes unpredictably on its own. I'm using another computer to search fo assistance because now the screen resolution is so large that it has eliminated access to the Start Menu and the control bar on the bottom of the screen, so I have no way to navigate from the desktop, attempt to change the resolution back, or even minimize the window. I tried to go in from the F12 command to reboot from the CD, and it allows me to go through all the steps, but then freezes at the final command.

How can I get back to the Start Menu or Control Panel or otherwise access the display controls to try to reset the screen resoltuion? Or as an alternative, how can I at least save my Outlook files (Office 07) to a flash drive or transfer them to this computer (the one I;m using to write this message)?

Thanks for any help!
 

A:unstable Windows XP reconfigured screen resolution

Try starting IE with No Add-Ons. This problem is more likely caused by a rogue toolbar or ActiveX control that is not compatible with IE8. If you don't have problems using IE (No Add-Ons) then you know that one of your add-ons is to blame. Disable them one-by-one until you find the culprit, and then uninstall it and optionally find an updated version.

Even better, use a different browser. FireFox is my favorite, but Google Chrome and Opera are great, among others.

Hi Everyone,

I am having an issue with screen resolution which is related to the use of a KVM switch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia with my Windows 7 computer.

When I boot into Windows 7 with the KVM switch set to my computer (e.g.: I watch the entire boot process from "white writing" to Windows loading) screen resolution remains at the setting that I chose (in my case 1280 x 1024).

However if I boot my Windows 7 computer and it is not active on my KVM (e.g.: I don't see the boot up) and then I later switch to the computer the resolution on my monitor is lower (1024 x 768).

This is an annoyance as all of my screen icons are moved around. Ideally I would like to be able to set Windows 7 to a screen resolution of 1280 x 768, and "lock it in" so that it loads with the desired screen resolution regardless of whether or not the Windows 7 computer is selected on my KVM.

If you have any advice it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

A:KVM switch, Windows 7 & changing screen resolution

As far as I know there is no fix for this problem.
When you boot up a computer with a KVM switch that is not switched to on the KVM it does not know what monitor is attached and sets it to a default setting usually 1024x768.
Your KVM switch sets the resolution and not your PC.
The only way is to boot up one PC with the KVM switched to it then boot up the other one with the KVM switched to it (a real pain in the rear) that's why i did away with my KVM.

First off, let me get the specifics out of the way. I'm using a Tablet Pc (Hp Compaq tc4200) and Windows XP.

Now for the problem: every time I restart my computer or maybe just close and open it again after a hour, the screen resolution is at 800x600. I keep resetting the resolution to 1024x768 (that's the highest resolution my laptop can take without me having to scroll down to the start menu), but the computer just resets itself everything I turn it off. It's as if I did nothing. I'm pressing the "Apply" and "OK" buttons in the window, and I can't figure out if there's something else I should be doing.

I installed and then unistalled a trial for Photoshop CS4 before the problem occurred. Could that be the cause of my problem? Sorry if this topic has been posted before. I tried to search for it, but couldn't find anything.

A:KVM switch, Windows 7 & changing screen resolution

This is a common complaint about W7 ...
It's a part of some new way W7 handles the monitor(s) ... and cannot be turned off.

I've read that replacing the KVM with one that supports Full Time / Active DDC function will solve the problem.
And there's some kind of an Adapter that lets W7 think it sees a monitor full time.
My solution was to keep using XP

Hi, Couldn't find a solution for my problem in the other posts so here it goes.

Currently I'm using 2 screens for my pc, one is a regular screen and the other one a 46'' LG TV. They both are running with a 1920x1080 resolution, which appears as native in both of them.

The regular screen has no problems, but the tv screen appears like it's running a lower resolution (Since its real size is at least 2 times bigger). Even when I move a page from the screen to the tv, the page is bigger than the screen so I loose part of the bottom. as you can see in this image, where the settings window practically covers the whole window when it's way smaller in the other screen)

http://puu.sh/joIMW/be5239fbff.png
(The tv is above the regular screen)

I don't remember how it worked with windows 7 to be honest, but I believe I used a bigger resolution like 2560x1440, which I can't here, since it finds 1920x1080 as the native and bigger resolution for the tv. So the question is, how do I increase its max resolution or there is another solution to match them both

A:Windows 10, screen resolution problem with 2 screens

I know this is an old post, but since no one else answered it, I thought I would (for future reference).

Televisions do something called overscan, which makes the picture larger than the visible screen. This is from the way-back-when days when CRT screens had rounded edges and pictures had straight edges. It was done to fill the whole screen, and even though those screens have gone the way of the dinosaur, the practice still continues.

To fix that you need to do one of two things.

1. Look in your TV settings menu for a way to disable overscan. Unfortunately it's not always called that (Sony called it Full Pixel mode, others called it 1:1 pixel mapping, etc.) so you may have to do a little hunting to find the correct setting. Most 1080p sets have it, somewhere (most 720p sets do not).

2. If you can't disable overscan, then look in your graphics driver setting for a way to scale the picture down to fit the visible screen.

Also, some televisions have one input that is PC specific, and that input should have overscan disabled.

Ok, so I heard about all the fuzz about the required screen resolution for Windows 8 so I bought myself a 16 inch LED Samsung SyncMaster S16A100N. I assembled it and all then while I was gonna plug it in my PC I noticed it was still in 1024x768 because of my old SyncMaster 540N. So I removed all of the drivers for the 540 and replaced it with the new ones. I noticed that the optimal screen resolution (1366 x 768) is nowhere to be found so I had to stick with 1280x768.

Here are my UPDATED SPECS:

If you are using onboard graphics, you should probably update that driver too. I would go to Intel's site and download the latest ones:

It's from 2004 but it's the latest for your motherboard. It should give you the option to choose the resolution after you install the driver.

You need to set the enable GPU scaling in your Nvidia control panel.

Don't use resolutions with unsupported refresh rates ie. anything lower than 59.97hz. You should be able to use most resolutions as long as they are 60hz. Try using variants of the 16:9 such as 1280x720, 1600x900, 1920x1080. Some of the resolutions are 16x10 and you will either have stretching or black bars if you use those.

My Powerbook G4 came with Tiger, and I have an old G4 PowerMac that has Panther on it. In both of those OSes if you double clicked networking in the sidebar of the Finder you could see the computers on your Windows network. When Leopard came out, in the sidebar of the Finder was a list of computers on your network, making access to them quicker. It was really slick because you only had to log in once, ever.

Basically what would happen is you'd single click on your Windows machine in the sidebar, and then a list of shares would come up in the main window of Finder. Then you'd double click whichever one you wanted to mount (no asking for password after your first access).

I was so impressed by this I also put Leopard on my Mac Mini (intel). It also worked great, for a time..

Now both my Powerbook and Mini no longer see Windows computers in the sidebar at all (they still see their Mac brothers though). And now the only way I can connect to one of my Windows machines is to go to the Go menu -> Connect to server -> then enter the smb address (smb://Athlon64 for example).
