Win 7 HCL laptop screen resolution problem

Microsoft Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit

Specs: Windows 7, 4 gb
I'm using an HCL laptop with win 7. Earlier it
was XP after sometime, it was crashing so I
got win7 32 bit installed. But now in win7,
when I try to change the screen's resolution, it
shortens the length. Like my recommended
setting is 1280x800, now when I tries to
change it to 1024x768 the length of the screen
shortens, this never happened in XP. How can
I make it adjust to screen?

U may adjust the lengths manually from either your video drivers software settings or directly the keys on the monitor.

You are using resolutions with different width to height ratios.

I don't think either of those two are the right ratio. Do as XpUser has recommended.

For best results you should only use the native resolution for your display (the one mentioned in the specs).

Depending on the dimensions of your screen there is a relation between the width and the height. In order to show accurate proportions you need to use resolutions with the same ratios.

If you could or did use 1024 x 768 in the past the screen will look stretched out.

Post the model of your laptop.

Using a 4:3 ratio resolution results in distorted and blurry images. Do not use 1024 x 768. Use 1280 x 800. If the icons and text on the screen seem too small you can adjust that.

If 1280 x 800 does not appear as an option for you then you need to download newer drivers for your NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G graphics chipset.

While using your laptop to download go to the link below and click on Graphics Drivers. Your system will be scanned and the correct drivers will be offered.

BTW, the C2D is part of the model number for your laptop.

If you installed the correct driver you may still need to select the correct resolution in Windows 7.

Right click on a blank space on your desktop and choose Resolution. Set to 1280 x 800 @ 60Hz.
