Black Screen When Using A Monitor

I am on a windows 7 starter net book. I just got a new monitor that has a lower resolution than my old one, it no longer works. When trying to use just the monitor the screen goes black. When trying to start windows in low resolution it starts it in low resolution on the netbook screen and not the monitor screen. When it is being sent out of both the monitor and the netbook the resolution is just what my netbook is. Is there a way that i can modify the resolution of the monitor because right now it is basically useless.

Monitor Not Displaying On All The Screen

I have just completed the windows 7 home premium upgrade (from windows vista home premium) on my dell studio xps 16 laptop. Everything has gone smoothly except now, when i connect my laptop to my dell sw2409w 24" monitor (via hdmi), i'm having a small issue. While windows does indeed detect the monitor type correctly and sets the resolution to 1920x1080, it doesn't fill up the entire screen. There is a 1-2" black space all the way around the outside.

I initially went into the monitor settings (using the buttons on the monitor) to auto-adjust the screen settings, but they're all disabled in hdmi mode. The monitor works perfectly with my other computer, and the screen on the laptop is fine too. I've updated the monitor driver, as well as the driver for my video card (ati mobility radeon hd 4670).

Any suggestions?

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Monitor Shut Off After Boot Screen

Can't believe i have to ask this problem again, previously my problem is my screen gets lower resolution when windows supposed to shows login screen (honestly it's remain unsolved) now my monitor suddenly just turn off when windows supposed to shows login screen (even though i can clearly hear the login screen's sound. )

It works fine after i press the power button to power up my laptop, the monitor showing bios & windows boot screen, but after that my monitor just turn off. Even when i'm performing clean boot (disable all startup items and disable other than microsoft services via msconfig) this problems still remains.

The only thing i could do it's just press the power button to shut down my laptop improperly then press the power button again to power up, then the problem's gone. Why this problem come on my 1st boot, suddenly gone in 2nd boot and sometime happens again when i'm trying to restart or power up again after shutting down my laptop from my 2nd boot?

Need to upgrade my graphic driver? Already have the newest versioná

My device manager shows no problem/conflict at all. Don't have any second monitor plugged in my laptop ever since i've installed windows 7.

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was runningávista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen andáthe monitor itselfásays there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing isámy pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!

Cannot Move Windows From One Monitor To Other - Dual Monitor Setup

I have two monitors of the same resolution connected to an ati radeon hd 4300/4500 video card. In windows 7 extended mode i see a full working desktop on one monitor, but only the background picture on the other - the four-square flag motif again a blue background with wispy lines, butterfly etc.

No taskbar, icons or anything else. On one occasion briefly the mouse cursor appeared on it instead of on the full desktop image. If i try to drag a window on to the second monitor it won't go there. The settings are landscape with two mointors "1" and "2". I have two images but how can i use the second one?

Using On-screen Keyboard To Print Screen

Well, firstly, thanks for making the onscreen keyboard so much bigger and more usable in w7 compared to xp. All good, until you need to "print screen", at which point you get an enormous section of the screen that you don't want - i.e. The new enlarged virtual keyboard.

So, is there a way to use the onscreen keyboard to print just the screen and not itself - sort of like you would get if it really was a keyboard - imagine how annoying it would be for all users if every time they used that function it inserted a nice big picture of your real keyboard over what you actually wanted. This has been a problem with xp, now a bigger one - 4 times as big in fact, with w7.

Monitor Resolution

I have purchased a legitimate windows 7 copy. No matter how i install it it wrecks my monitor resolution. This is not a cheap old monitor, it's a fairly new one. Right now i use again vista and everything seems normal. But when i install windows 7 the maximum resolution it gives me is 640x480. It's really annoying.

Monitor Will Just Go Blank

I have an issue where my monitor will just go blank. The computer is running but no display. My first thought was that this is a display adapter/video driver issue but i not longer think so. Let me explain. My set up is a hp m9040n running windows 7 ultimate x64. I have a nvidia 9600 gso card that is less than 6 months old and use a samsung syncmaster t240 monitor.

This first started happening about one month ago right after i upgraded my video card driver to the latest version. I would be away from the computer for awhile and when i came back no amount of mouse shaking would bring the screen on. At that point a hard shut down and boot up would bring things back.

Thursday it got worse. Hard shut downs would not bring anything back but i would see the bios startup screen so obviously the monitor and display adapter has some output. I started in safe-mode and installed that latest driver from the nvidia website. No difference, in fact it appears to be the same driver that windows update put out.

My next step was to roll back my driver to the one that came with my video card. This kind of works. There are new symptoms now. Now what happens is that after working for awhile i would hear the usual kind of insert/disconnect sound (like plugging in a usb device) and then the screen resolution would change from 1920x1200 to 1024x768. For some reason the monitor according to the screen resolution control would go from my monitor to a generic. If i click on the detect button, the screen will blank out and once again i have to do a hard shut down. The hard shut down followed by a boot in safe mode and and reboot restores things to normal.

Dual Monitor

Is there any option available with using dual monitor in aá"stretched" view instead of extended? What i'm trying to do is run 1 application over my 2 monitors in full screen mode. So far i haven't found anything that would make this possible. I can extend and i can enlarge a window over 2 monitors but i can't really use a resolution of ~3200 * 1050 for example. This was possible under xp but neither vista or windows 7 i can get this to work.

I've tried searching the forums but alas i have not found an answer for this. If someone can find a topic already covering this sorry for double posting. But mostly i found extending and not really stretching it over 2 screens.

Problem With Monitor

Well i am not sure if monitor is the cause of the problem. Ok listená every time(but not always)ái start my computer after windows startupá i see my desktop andáafter 1-2 minutes(not more) my screen display goes black or white or grey. The computer and the screen are still working but no response. I dont even see the cursor. I restart my computer and after everything is fine. It never happens again. But the next day it happens again!

My graphics card is ati radeon 5770, my os is windows 7 64 bit and my screen is lg monitor-tv m227wd. Refresh rate is 60hz and resolution is 192x1080. The first 1-2 days i used the computer that problem didnt appear. So it makes me think that maybe i downloaded something that causes this problem(a programme)áor its a hardware problem? I have updated the graphics drivers and also i have all the microsoft updates.

Monitor Shuts Off

My computer monitor keeps shutting off on me. I have a dell inspiron b130 (i know it is kinda old) but i don't think its a hardware issue. It has started happening since i installed windows 7. At first i thought it was because my original product key didn't work, but i did the automated phone activation, and validated on the website, but it still shuts off. If i don't use my computer for awhile, it may stay on for a good 20 mins or so, but once it shuts off once, the time it stays on gets less and less. But, i just close the lid and open it back up and it works again. Any ideas as to what is going on?!?

Dual Monitor Help

Dell couldn't seem to solve my problem, so i'm desperately in need of help. I have a dell inspiron 580, i3 processors. The machine has one vga output, and hdmi. I want to run two monitors, so dell informed me to buy a second vid card. I did, installed a raedon jd2600 pro 512mb with two dvi connections and one dvi adapter. I hooked both monitors up, and it will either run one monitor on the ati card, or one on the intel card, but i cannot extend the display. I was on the dell support line for over an hour, andá they told me to just go buy another dvi adapter and plug it in. So if that's true, i cant run two cards?

Cannot Get Second Monitor To Work

I am connecting a second monitor to my sony vaio-vgn-sz650n-by vga. Before upgrading from vista to 7, it was working just fine. After upgrading, i plug it in, screen blinks, but no display on second monitor. It is a dell g2210 by the way. I tried restarting my computer with monitor connected, without it connected, and went into the display settings where you can change resolution, etc. On the different monitors, and nothing there. Tried to "detect" monitor, still nothing. Tried updating the driver, nothing(maybe wrong driver?). I would love to get this problem solved as school is starting and i need to use my computer a lot, and really like having dual monitors.

Two Installations For Same Monitor

I recently installed windowsá7 replacing vista on my hp pavillion. After some difficulty which required a denovo installation versus an upgrade, i managed to get windows 7 functioning. However, when playing a game (cod waw, etc) if i get killed and the game restarts, there is a 4-10 sec delay in the screen returning to the game scene. I can hear the sound immediately but the video lags. When i look at the control panel =>ámonitors, it shows that the monitor is installed twice. How do i remove one of the installations?

Hooking Tv Up As A Monitor

I have tried everything. I have gone to nvidia and got the updates for 7. I have a pavilion slimline s7600n i have a outdated graphics card, nvidia geforce 6150 le gpu. I cant even upgrade it. I don't think thats the reason my tv is not recognized. I had it hooked up when i had xp and it worked just fine. I think that windows 7 thinks i am trying to hook up two monitors. I just want this to work the tv has the same resolution as the hpv15 monitor but it wont work.

I have been at this all day. Please help i can get it to come on for a second, but the computer quickly reboots. I have to plug the hpv15 monitor back in to get reception. It says had to reboot or something of that nature because it found new hardware. I can find a generic monitor but i cannot make it the primary monitor. Any one anything this post has been here for 45 minutes and nothing

Error - Out Of Range - Monitor

"out of range" error appears on my monitor right before logging screen. Have this quite annoying little bug, when i boot up windows 7 it starts loading then suddenly my monitor will just go black and a "out of range" error will pop up. I've tried everything i know to fix this, logged in safe-mode and updated all my graphic drivers and still no luck. Currently in safe-mode as we speak. I believe it's something to do with my resolution, graphics card. I have a nvidia 9600 gs.

Multi Monitor Spanning

I put this under hardware and drivers because it pertains to the functionality of windows with hardware, more specifically video cards and monitors. We in the it department are evaluating windows 7 currently (skipped vista because of functional needs)áand in our tests we came across this problem. Granted we can drag the windows open across the monitors or manually set the window size, but this to us is an extreme problem as we would have to instruct all of those users on how they can achieve this goal.

Why is this an issue?We have a good number of people and workstations/laptops (well over 5, 000 currently). All of these use excell and about 30% use visio. Currently in xp, when a spreadsheet/document is opened (more for excel spreadsheets) the user double clicks the top window bar to maximize it and it fills both monitors (no need to drag it open or set the window resolution). This function is not available in later operating systems as i have found out. I actually have two questions, and though i doubt i will receive a cognizant answer, i will ask them.

1 " why was this feature removed from later productions?

2 " is there an effort to re-institute this feature in later windows versions?

I know windows vista/7 (as i read) will not have this ability, but i need to know if this will become part of the next generation. As it is i will have a very hard time explaining this to people that use our board room with 2 x 2 displays on the wall without having to expend more money for something that was at one time a featureŁ of the windows environment.

Monitor Wont Wake Up

I installed windows 7 a week ago and my computer would go to sleep properly (ie: one click of the power button and everything was up and running on the desktop). In the last few days however, my monitor will not wake up. Just stays off and the status light is blinking like it is not communicating with my pc. The only way to get it running is by manually powering down on the pc tower. Not sure if i changed a setting but have checked power settings and they seem to be what they were when everything was fine.
