My netbook(Samsung NC110 with 1024*600 Screen Resolution and Intel GMA 3150) is running Windows 8.1 x64 now. I want to use all features of Windows 8, so i want to set Custom resoltion like 1366*768. I was trying to change some keys in the regedit, but the picture was very bad, cause my screen is 16:9, and 1024*768 or 1152*864 resolutions is 4:3. I want to get some utility to set Custom Resolutions, that bigger that real resolution of my display.
I have a gateway NE56R41u. With that aside, today i played the sims 3 when it has a warning about my graphics card or whatever, so i went to my screen resolution to see if i can fix the problem. Unfortunately, the place where i can choose what my resolution is greyed out, so i cannot change a thing. Heres a picture .....
I have Lenovo G580 running 8.1 with intel HD4000 and Nvidia Geforce 610 & Intel CoreI5 3210 2.5GHZ 3rd generation the problem occurs after few days from updating the Intel video card which is simply i can't change the screen brightness whether using the [function+uparrow ] or control panel, it works well when i roll back the driver so am I stuck with the old driver which i can't update or what?
Sometime ago my old Nvidia GTX560 Ti died. I don't have the ability to replace the card at the moment so I've been using my onboard Intel HD 4600. I must say I'm pretty impressed by what that little GPU on die can do.
Currently I'm on driver 10.18.10.3621 Let's call it the New driver. What happens basically is that many games (specifically OpenGL and possibly?? older DX games) have rather severe graphics corruption. Basically textures flicker wildly, sometimes polygons draw at wild angles. It makes me think of some sort of memory corruption.
Also, the FPS can vary wildy, games stutter, etc. Newer games (Dx9+) do not seem to have this issue.
Here is a demo video. Note that it is *far* worse IRL, the recording software is only picking up a small amount of the issues. Games are almost unplayable. [URL] .....
Here is the intel information center details.
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 Report Date: Monday, July 28, 2014 Report Time [hh:mm:ss]: 10:53:24 PM Driver Version: 10.18.10.3621 Default Language: English (Australia) Installed DirectX* Version: 11.0
I tried to downgrade to the previous version to see if it would work. Version 126.96.36.19996. Let's call it the Old driver. Surprisingly enough, all of those issues disappeared. Games ran perfectly smooth with no artifacting. However sometimes on occasion the graphics driver itself hard crashes. The screen flickers of rainbow colors very rapidly... I've never seen anything even remotely like it. It seems like through google that this "Rainbow screen of death" is an issue of a rather fatal Intel GPU crash. That would seem likely since it has only ever appeared on THIS driver version with THIS GPU.
So, recap. The new driver is completely stable, but many games, specifically and OpenGL PERHAPS DirectX games suffer from really strange artifacting of sorts. The old driver is completely fine and stable, but crashes the system.
So I'm forced to use the new driver and really limit what I can play. I'm not sure what direction to go next. I realise I have no left much info but I'm unsure as to what information is required. I do not believe there is any hardware issue otherwise I'd of seen other indications. It is certainly not a heat issue as I have rather effective cooling and I'm in the middle of a rather cold winter. Besides I've monitored the temps.
My new Acer laptop has very disappointing screen and video quality. The screen resolution is maxed-out at 1366 x 768 with Intel HD Graphics 4000. Those specs should be just fine for great visuals. My old desktop didn't come close to that but I could watch Youtube videos very well with no pixeling of image. Acer tech support said "new graphics driver download" and I did that , to no avail. Setting adjustments etc.? My wife's 3 year old Acer has better screen quality than my new one.
I'm running Vista 64 and tried to upgrade to win 8. It went well enough, but my screen resolution became very poor. I have AMD Radeon X1250 graphics and can't find a driver that will work on Win 8, so I reverted to Vista. But I really want to run Win 8.
The other day my son stepped on my laptop and messed up the screen. Now when it starts up I get red lines going across the screen, but can still see the bios info and the windows logo and spinning dots when Windows loads just fine, however when Windows starts I just have a blank screen. Obviously the screen was damaged, but it seems to display the lower resolution okay. I just can't lower the resolution in Windows since I can't see what I'm doing. Plugging in an external monitor doesn't work, there's no output there. Is there way to change the resolution settings if I take it the hdd and plug it into another computer as an external drive? The laptop is an Intel cpu and my other machine is an AMD cpu, so I don't think just trying to boot the laptop hard drive in the desktop would work.
My computer is hp envy dv6 7280sf notebook with 2 GPUs intel graphics HD 4000 and Nvidia Gefoce 630 M running windows 8 64x.
After making an free upgrade online for windows 8.1 which run successfully, both gpus were ok...
But after receiving a windows update with new drivers for intel graphics 4000 gpu , after install and restart , the computer freezes on blank black screen at windows startup with no mouse or anything only backlight.
So safemode was succeful but i figured that the update for windos update was the cause and graphics drivers were installed so i removed the drivers for intel graphics and itried to reboot the computer so the restart was succeful but the intel graphics card was unistalled and no drivers were automatically installed so i tried to download and install the drivers from hp and intel website for windows 8.1 however the install fails.
Automatic install from device manager failed both online and from computer and even from manual driver selection.
So therefore the install failed in safe mode , and the high def audio device ( on screen audio possibly) failed and the device was not recongnized (no drivers installed) so i'm stuck without anydrivers for the integrated gpu and the games are no longer able to run normally even if the nvidia card is on.
I tried downloading an installing Windows 8 drives but it failed to install also , for instance any new install of drovers seems to fail for me even for external usb hard drive.
I recently updated to Windows 8.1 (64-bit), and I immediately noticed that my resolution had taken a strange turn. Everything except the taskbar seems to be a lower resolution than before. This suspicion was only strengthened when I launched a game that I had running in 1440x900 windowed, and it didn't fit properly on the screen. I checked my display settings and used printscreen to check the resolution and both said 1920x1080, but when I used Puush to take a desktop screenshot, it came out as 1536x864, whereas before installing 8.1, desktop screenshots came out as 1920x1080. I tried changing the resolution and changing it back, but I'm still having the issue.
I installed 8 because when I first tried it I loved it, and realized that it was WAAAY faster than 7 in my usual routines and boot/shutdown times. I also like the new start menu, it's very refreshing and user-friendly (although I admit, in some aspects, it can actually be inconvenient). But anyway, on with the problem...
After a fresh install of 8, on my ASUS N53Jq, I tried to do the thing I do the most on my PC at the moment: game recordings on my HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition.
Everything, technically, went fine and the recordings were as good as they were when recorded with 7...however, due to these recordings I did, I noticed that now my PC only has two resolution settings: 1366 x 768 and 1024 x 768. And yes, I have the latest driver for my GPU...
Before I had many settings, including 1280 x 720 which is very useful for me to output into my PVR (so I can actually get a 60fps video...). I had to go to my nvidia control panel and add 720p as a custom resolution setting, which worked I guess but this is scaring me a little now...
Is this normal? Does 8 only set highest and lowest resolution? I'm betting it doesn't, and it's my PC thats the problem.
Windows 8 64bit, 6gb RAM, Graphics card Gainward GTX460 In the last week boot up has been very slow and the screen resolution is lower than recommended (1920x1080) at 1024x768 . Then the mouse smears across the desktop until I change the resolution to the recommended 1920x1080. Is the problem in Windows 8 or the graphics card. How can I test the graphics card?
I installed Windows 8 Pro on a new PC. I ran into a problem where Windows automatically started at the wrong monitor timing. I temporarily used a TV to get to an advanced startup screen that had a check box for low-resolution. That allowed it to work with my display. I now have a video card that correctly supports my display. The problem is, Windows 8 always boots in low resolution and I have to manually change it after each boot.
The problem is that I don't recall what gave me the screen with the menu. It is not the blue screen with press F1 - F9. This was a standard dialog box with check boxes and a note on the side saying any changes would be permanent. But any method that allows it to permanently boot to a normal screen.
OK, what I want to do is the same that a lot of users that have their smartphones (Android OS), is change the original DPI o screen resolution (force a different scale/resolution) For example: what I'm trying to say of Android OS is when you want more space avaible on your desktop or the objects/texts/sidebar/icons/etc... looks like smaller than before, you just need to go to this directory (/system) and edit the file (build.prop) and finally locate the line called (ro.sf.lcd_density=xxx) and change the original density number of your screen's device by other smaller; and when you'll restart the device you'll have the same os similar size's desktop of one Note 3 in your SGS3 mini.
So, in resume. I would like to have a 1920x1080 (for example, or smaller I don't know what resolution is correct for my case), from my actual resolution of my laptop that it's 1280x800 pixels.
And for more details: - Windows 8.1 Pro (x86) - Resolution 1280x800 (15,4") and 16:10 - Graphic Adapter Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950 (Intel GMA 945 GM) - Only the original monitor (laptop), not an external monitor
Resolution of my monitors 1280, but I can't open apps because "resolution is less than 1024" (error message). If I update video driver Windows does not work, being necessary to restore to a previous state.
When I installed the Video card, I either disabled, or uninstalled, the Intel HD 3000 Video adapter. I am now having issues with the card and wanted to try using the Intel graphics, before replacing the card, but they are no where to be found. "Scan for hardware changes" produces nothing.
They do not show up under display adapters in Device Manager, so I can't enable/install them. I d/l the last 2 versions of drivers form Intel, neither will install -

Both primary and secondary displays are 1080p, native. Windows says both are running at 1920x1080, but I can visually see the secondary display is running a lower resolution. The GPU is GeForce GTX 560M, with the latest drivers. I didn't have this issue with Windows 7.
I recently bought a Razer Blade 14 laptop and have been enjoying it so far.
However, after a few days, the resolution of the screen jumps down to 640x480 after a few seconds from logging in to windows It has been annoying as I have to change it back to the default 3200x1800 each time. There would then be no problems until the next log in.
I have been installing programs onto my new Blade ...
I got my laptop repaired lately, the problem with it was that the screen was broken... before I put my laptop in for repair I had it connected to a external monitor so I could continue using my computer
As the title suggests on receiving my fixed computer, my laptop is running a lower resolution than supposed to. It is displaying 1366x 768 with the error message "Your resolution is lower than 1280 x 960. Some items might not fit on your screen" with no choice to increase said resolution.
This was the resolution I previously had while my laptop monitor was working... I assume this is to do with the external monitor I had it set up on but I no longer have that monitor.
Is there a way to somehow reset my graphics to recognize the correct resolution?
