can't find right screen settings

March 11, 2009 at 03:13:57
Specs: winxp pro, duocore 2.8GH/2GB

I've recently changed monitors from an older 3:4 ratio to 9:16 ratio Flatron W1934S.

All is well except that I don't seem to be able to get the right screen setting as e.g. text looks a bit flattened.

My feeling is that there is an adjustment somewhere that I'm missing, something very basic!

Many thanks Bye
Fred

set your resolutions to what the manufacturer says is ok for the monitor and your graphics card. Set it to defaults if that is what you have a setting for. then you can adjust the size of the text and icons through themes in display properties from control panel!

Change Is Good

Your monitor has a native resolution of 1440 x 900. Right click on the desktop, click Properties, then click the Settings tab. Set the screen resolution to 1440 x 900...if it's not one of the options, you'll need to update your video drivers.

You can try all the resolutions and hopefully find one that works best for you. 4:3 resolutions look pretty bad on a wide screen monitor. To determine if a resolution is for wide screen or an old 4:3 screen do the following:

Divide the first (larger) resolution number by the smaller. If you get an answer of about 1.77 that is for wide screen. An answer of about 1.33 is for an old 4:3 screen. For example 1280 divided by 720 is 1.77 and should work reasonably well on a wide screen monitor even though it's not the optimal resolution for it. A number of 1.66 is kinda close to 1.77 and might work ok.
