I have a Dell Studio 1537 and i have completley reinstalled windows vista and after the screen was a bit stretched. I turned the resolution to the highest and made sure the colours option was at 32bit. This helped and shrunk the screen a bit but now it is still a little bit stretched and the image is not as sharp as it used to be. How can i get it back to its origional format?
I got a Nvidia 8400GS When i got the PC but brought a Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 / 1GB / PCI Express 2.0 / Graphics Card. My brother took out the Nvid card and then formated the PC to make sure that all drivers where uninstalled then put the ATI card in. In divice manager under dispaly adapters there is standard VGA Graphics Adapter and further down the page there is "Other Divices" with Video controller. When it installs these some times the standard VGA Graphics Adapter fail but the video controller succeed but with error. saying. "Incompatable display Adapter has been disabled. At least one display adapter on the system has been disabled because its not compatible with the driver for the VGA adapter". lso i carnt change the resolution above 1024X768. Also my Graphic card is a Sapphier brand but in the windows update its looking for ATI Technologies Inc. - Display - ASUS EAH3870X2 Series

Both apart is quite straightforwad. Go to Options and select which you desire. But I am NOT able to achieve both. Tried two approaches: First I made a BMP-file with my signature and logo and used the stationary wizard to put that on left bottom of my messages. In the wizard I can also change the font and size. Easily done. But ... when I compose a mail the bitmap doesn't go down with the text which makes this approach quite useless.
Secondly I made a HTM-document with Word and again placed my signature and logo on the bottom. In Mail itself I tell to use font Calibri 12. The HTML-text scrolls nicely down when I compose a mail but it KEEPS typing in dull times New Roman 12. The 2nd approach is closest to what I desire apart from the font. Maybe there is a 3rd approach which I haven't found. Maybe there is a simple solution.
I have a issue with my Linksys wireless USB adapter. I am trying to use it with Vista Home Premium. After installing software... I plug the adapter in (like directions say) and windows update goes to work. It updates the driver, installs correctly, I then connect to my home network and all is good. My prob is for some reason I lose internet and the USB adapter itself. One time I switched users and lost all. I have tried uninstalling adapter and tried reinstalling by pointing to my D drive (install CD) in hopes of using the driver that's on the installation CD. as soon as it saw everything.. windows update once again gave me the same buggy driver. I have tried to install with UAC disabled... no luck... the Linksys website/support for drivers has the same updated driver. I tried to use an older one but Windows keeps forcing this updated one down my throat.

At first I had no problems for the last 4 months when I hooked up my new TV to my laptop. I didn't even change any graphic sttings. It worked great right out of the box. I am using a standard VGA-VGA cable. Last week I hooked up my laptop to an old CRT display to do our taxes. I had to play with the graphic settiings for the CRT monitor to look OK.
Now, when I hook up the TV to the laptop, it only has the middle part of the screen showing the desktop. I have played with the Graphic settings, but no matter what I do, I cannot get it to look like it did before with the wide screen.
My friend is having a computer issue and I am her computer techie friend trying to help her fix it. I'm in a different city than she is, so sadly I can't see what the problem is, but I am computer savvy enough to know how to gain information from her. The problem: She said that the other day she clicked on a pop up (sounds like a vista-related pop up) that said something about a Hard Drive or Hardware…she wasn't 100% sure. She clicked 'continue' on the pop up and ever since those settings (for whatever it was) went into place, her visual graphic settings have been messed up.
It seems like her wallpaper is streched and larger than before (dosen't all fit on the screen) and her text and such when she surfs the net is larger than normal. She defined it as being "big and strechy". She is using an HP laptop on Vista. We tried messing with Display and Wallpaper settings -- tried all the different options (resolution, etc) and had no luck. Furthermore, we tried a restore….but the restore was unsuccessful. On what is likley an unrelated note (but I'll throw it in anyways), her HP Recovery drive is getting pretty full. She thinks it has something to do with it since it hasn't been like that, but I don't think it relates to the graphics problem. why her desktop background wallpaper is big and strechy and why her text when surfing the internet is so large?
I've got 2 displays atached to my ATI X1950XT wich has 2 DVI connectors. Now the thing is that I would like to install a third display using my second graphic card ( NOTE! its different ) its a old PCI with only one vga but how do I install it in VISTA? Does Vista support multiple graphic drivers?
My laptop doesn't have a graphic card but runs on a chipset from Intel. I searched everywhere if i can put a laptop graphic card on my laptop. What i did find was other people similar to my laptop has a graphic card. I opened my laptop until i could see where i can put my graphic card. I found no Graphic card. I never saw the whole inside of my laptop because if i went in more i might of broke something because i got stuck at a point where i couldn't pull the hand rest off. So i was wondering where and what type of graphic card that fits for my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop so that it can run on Crysis on high.

I bought a GeForce GTX260 and so far it's amazing. But I've been told that the resolution on the computer is based on the graphics card. The highest mine goes to is 1440x900. I've seen some go 1900xsome number. Is it possible to get my resolution higher or does my graphics card not allow that?
Hello, I just installed Vista X64 on a computer and any kind of graphics or timer is running at a very accelerated pace. from the loading bar graphics vista shows when booting up, to flash ads on websites, to video games. Anyone have an idea what may be causing this and what are the fixes?
Is it possible to insert 5 graphic cards with dual DVI outputs in order to display Windows Vista desktop on 10 monitors (5 cards x 2 outputs)? What I need is a one big desktop that is stretched to all 10 monitors. And I need configuration of 5 monitors in one row, so I have two rows with 5 monitors in each.
I play this online game where you have to be very fast to bid, but lately I haven't been doing so good anymore, because everybody is upgrading their connection speed and doing macros to play, a friend of mine told me she installed a graphic card, and her game speeded up considerably. is this true does a craphic card also makes your pc faster?
I am looking to buy my niece a laptop for Christmas and I'm looking for some advice. She is only 13 and the only game she really plays at the moment is Sims2. Obviously I would like to buy the the best one I can, but I would like to ensure that for the future it could erhaps play a few better games as well as Sims2. I can imagine she will be using the laptop for her school work as well over the next few years. Any advice on which one to buy. I don't know much about PC'S but I was told that different graphic cards can make a bit of difference.
I recently upgraded my graphics card from a Radeon 9600 to 3650 and that is where I struck problems. The standard VGA adaptor isn't working or became corrupt and when I installed the Radeon driver, the system froze after a short while. I have tried deleting adaptor, but that also removes "Display Adaptors" from the Device Manager, so even if I install the 3650 driver, it won't appear as installed. I have tried doing a clean install of Vista but the same thing occurs. On the other hand I have no problem with Windows 7 RC1 where everything works perfectly. What purpose does the VGA serve anyway since I still have a display without it working?
I installed Vista SP1 Ultimate. By default the aero theme is activated. I would like to switch to the Vista standard theme, but it seems this theme is not present. In control panel / Appearance and Personalization / Personalization / Theme, there are only two themes listed: Windows vista (aero) and Windows Classic. Is there a way to install the Vista standard theme? It should be present in Vista Ultimate.
That wireless keyboard had a neat extra row of keys to bring up the IE 7 browser, Outlook Mail and do a number of things. How can this be done with key combinations from a standard keyboard? Hey, it has to just be a bunch of key combinations that hopefully a standard keyboard can produce.
