Solved: screen resoluotion

876 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  cwwozniak
hey guys, i just reformatted my hardrive, wanted to start over from scratch. everything's going well so far, but my screen resolution, i don't know how to explain it, just looks odd. i have a widescreen laptop, and everything sort of looks stretched. when i try to play with the resolution settings , i only have two options, 800x600 or 1024x768. i'm not sure if this has anything to do with things looking blurry and stretched, or if it's a driver issue. hope you can help me out.
thanks for your time.

Click on START, click on CONTROL PANEL.
Click on Performance and Maintenance.
Click on System.
Click on the Hardware tab.
Click the DEVICE MANAGER button.
Once you have Device Manager open, Look for yellow, anything with yellow need a driver.

Find the "display" and update that driver this is your resolution/graphics card driver.

Or you can visit your laptops manufacturers web site and download all the latest drivers there.

Far as your resolution right click on desktop, select properties, select setting, increase the bar, select "apply" it will go blank then show you what it is going to look like. if you like it click okay if not then click no and increase the bar further.
