Computer Display Shakes Nonstop - Hdmi Tv Screen Resolutions


We just bought a dell inspiron 560. When i hooked up our 26" sharp hdtv (we'd used it on our other computer, worked fine) the computer screen was too big for the tv, and the top and sides were cut off. I've tried every screen resolution/aspect ratio and tv display view option combination i could try. I've found one or two that fit nicely, but the computer display shakes nonstop. I've tried rebooting but it doesn't work. The only difference between this computer hookup and our old one is the hdmi port on the dell. We bought this computer because it had the hdmi port for the tv, but i can't make it work is there a reason why the screen resolutions that fit the tv nicely shake? The recommended screen resolution is 1280x720, but it's far too big vertically and horizontally.

Moniter screen resolution- when i display a picture as a desktop back ground it seems to be on 75% of the moniter not lyk a full screen, when i try to adjust it on screen resolutions the maximum size is 1280x768 how ever for my 19inch monitor it is recommended that it should be set at 1280x1024 but that is not the option.

Hdmi Second Display Problem

I just bought a new toshiba laptop and was setting up the second display to use my 42" hdtv. I had it going for a bit and was trying to adjust the resolution so that the hdtv didn't have the black bars as well as the internal/built in monitor on the laptop but i guess i selected the wrong resolution for the tv and now it is showing not supported, message on the tv, and the laptop has a black screen.

I can unplug the hdmi cord and get the display on the laptop, but, i can not change or edit or delete the settings for teh 'second display', cause it is not hooked up, and therefore not in the drop-down box. How can i get to the settings/resource file to delete the settings/resolution of the second monitor.

Cannot Detect 2nd Hdmi Tv Display

I had a vga display as my primary display and a hdtv display via a hdmi cable as a second display hooked up to my computer. This worked fine until a month ago. When at first the picture showed only a zoomed in top left hand corner of the screen on my hdtv with all psychedelic colours the first thing i tried was a roll back of the updates but this had no effect, as dis changing the cable. Then when i changed the graphics card windows 7 stopped being able to 'detect' my second display with either card.

Any ideas or solutions would be most helpful?

Black Screen With Hdmi Cable

So i recently built a computer, and decided to go with windows 7. I plug in the vga cable to my computer and monitor, and it works awesomely. I plug the hdmi cable into the computer and then into my tv, and the tv is showing a black screen. Even if i try to drag items onto it, duplicate the desktop, or even set the tv as my main screen, nothing seems to show up on the tv. Looking through the faq, it says that only movies and games would show up on the hdtv, but that hasn't worked either. Does anyone know what i can do to fix this?

Blank screen when i connect my laptop to tv with a hdmi cable. I am trying to coonect my laptop ( dell studio 1555 ) to my sony tv ( bravia kdlw4100 ) using an hdmi cable.

Readyboost Issue: Computer Won't Display Physical And Virtual Dvd Drives

After some nasty bsod and a clean reinstall of windows to resolve that problem i've noticed that sometimes after startup the computer won't display correctly the physical and virtual dvd drives. And the system is too slow. I tried in several times to restart it to see if the problem will disappear but the restart process was taking ages to complete. Till i've disconnected the 4gb sdhc card which was dedicated to readyboost. I tried restarting the computer without the sdhc card in it. Went fine. Everything was ok till i inserted back the card then suddenly the computer slows dramatically stops responding and the problem mentioned above reappears!

My question :is it really a readyboost issue or  some tech fault from my computer? And what can i do to fix it. Now i'm using the computer without the sdhc card and the readyboost function.

My pc config is: toshiba satellite  a 300 intel core2duo centrino 1, 83 ghz 4gb ram
And the driver for the card reader is from o2 and it is the latest one!

Display Does Not Fill Full Screen

I use two display in an extended desktop configuration, a 19 inch and a 22 inch. After upgrading from vista to windows 7 professional i have a problem if i set my smaller display as the main display. This problem did not occur until i upgraded. The problem is that with the smaller display as the main, the picture on the secondary screen only fills part of the display and not the full display. If i reverse the setting and use the larger display as the main, then it fills the screen and the second display is also full screen width.

Screen Display After Installing Win 7

Yesterday i did a clean install of win 7 home premium. After the install completed i attempted to adjust the screen display. Nothing i try can get my screen display back to how it appeared prior to installing 7. Now everything is a bit odd – the bottom menu bar is too wide and takes up too much space on the page. No matter what setting i use for screen resolution either the page itself or the font is too small or too large. My previous settings no longer work and the new ones display very oddly making it hard to see or read the pages. This is true regardless of application or web use.

I’ve attempted using just about every screen resolution, background, desktop option available including personalized settings. I’m trying to figure out what changed with the installation of 7 and how to resolve this issue and return the display to the pre-7 state.

Remove On Screen Display Volume

Basically anytime i'm running a full screen application, whether it be a game or movie and i use the touch keys to adjust the volume i'm immediately taken out of full screen. What if i'm in the middle of the game and it has to minimize it just to show that? Its terribly annoying and i have seen it in the services tab under device manager one time and was able to stop the service or end the process and it worked however since restarting i cannot find it again. Can someone please help with this?

Screen Saver Does Not Work - Display Never Shuts Off

The screen saver never works and the display never shuts off. How do i fix this? I have no idea how to make the screen saver work or get the display to automatically shut off. The preview for the screen saver doesn't even work. Everything i've read said this is typically because of a wireless mouse, but i do not have a wireless mouse or anything else attached to my laptop.

Blue Screen On Startup - Nvidia Phisx Display Drivers Problem

I am having a bit of a headache here. I currently run windows 7 ultimate. Everything had been running exceptionally. I recently ran driver sweeper and was rebooting with the application. It supposedly removed nvidia phisx, display and chipset drivers. Windows 7 now bsod's in the middle startup. I try to go into safe mode with any options and it bsods as well. I have run startup repair to no avail. Repair said it found a problem that a change in system settings but it couldn't do anything further. I tried to run sfc scannow on the command prompt in startup repair and it said there is a repair pending and it had to be restarted. I have windows xp on another hard drive so i can access directories that way with limited capability. I also did not set a recovery point nor do i have an image to return to. Any ideas?

Annoying.

Computer Boots To Black Screen

"black" screen and then a restart! New computer 5/2010 - dell inspiron 580 intel core i5 -8 gig - hd 1 tb_dedicated video card  8ginew computer 5/2010 - dell inspiron 580 intel core i5 -8 gig - hd 1 tb. Dedicated video card windows 7 64 bit started off with black screen (never have had a blue screen) then would come back on again after a few seconds. Eventually it would not come on again and i would have to shut down the computer and restart it! This went on almost daily, until it became more and more often during each day and became a pain.

I called dell and they "flashed the mother board" that worked for a little while and then within a few days, it started again, and progressed to the point of screen going black and the computer restarting all by itself. There was no "one thing" i was doing at the time. Originally it did it most when i was stressing the video card, but after they flashed the mb, it happened whenever it felt like it whatever i was doing. One morning i came out to the computer and it was frozen and there was a message on ti saying it h ad not been shut down correctly!

That was false as i had restarted it before i went to bed and it was fine!I called del again and they are going to schedule a tech to come out here and pull out all the major parts, mb etc (not my hd) and see if that fixes it, since it is still under warranty. I was sharing this on a yahoo list i am on and someone told me they had happened to them and a work mate good with computers, had suggested they try a new mouse!   

They did and the issue resolved itself and they had no further issues! I said thank you, i am willing to try anything. I switched the mouse with from my older computer to my new one and visa versa. That was one week or so ago! I have not had an issue since!I am really perplexed at this!  Has anyone ever heard of a mouse causing a black screen and a computer restart consistently? I have not called del back again, because i keep thinking that it will start again. Is is possible that his issue was a simple as that and if so, why would a mouse cause that?

Shut Down Computer From Login Screen

I have my windows 7 systems set up with user account passwords. I sometimes accidentally bump my keyboard and wake my computer up from sleep mode, taking it to the login screen where it waits for a password. How do you shut the computer off or put it back to sleep from the login screen? There isn't a button or anything. Does windows not let you shut the computer off until you log in? It's a completely unnecessary hassle to have to log in to put the computer back to sleep, not to mention if someone else in my family accidentally woke the computer up they wouldn't be able to put it back to sleep at all.

Computer Crashes - Screen Flashes Very Quickly

About every other time i boot my computer, i get a bluescreen, and the computer crashes. The screen flashes very quickly, but it says something about a corrupt driver. I'm running windows 7, and i have at&t internet security suite as my virus protection, etc. Is there a list of essential drivers needed for windows 7? I'm at a point where i may just go in and delete any drivers that aren't essential since the "check solution" area offers no assistance. The error i get under the problem detail is:

Suddenly Computer Stops With Blue Screen And Restarts

My system is win 7. I recently got this new notebook. I thought i was having problem with anti-virus but i recently came to know about this blue screen of death. Suddenly the computer stops in between anytime with the blue screen showing up and computer restarts. I recently uninstalled norton which was a free-version which i got with notebook and installed kaspersky. I ve now even removed kaspersky and installed bit-defender but problem is still occurring. No virus detected by both.

I ve even tried to restore the notebook to the day i bought this. But the problem is not fixed. The error message looks something like what appears in this link http://www.Gadgetlite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/windows-7-bsod.jpg. I am worried that my new system may get hardware problems due to this.

Computer Randomly Crashes - Screen Will Go To Black Then White

I recently installed windows 7 on my laptop and it was working great until it started crashing.

At first it only crashed when i was using pretty demanding programs but now it sometimes just randomly crashes when using music players etc, and i lose all my work.

When it crashes i'll just be working then the screen will go to black then white then flash back to the original screen, and it will do something like that for about 5 seconds then it shuts down and restarts.

When it turns back on i get a message that simply says windows has has an unexpected shutdown then it likely gives me some options to choose or something. I don't remember exactly.

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7 home 64 bit a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers not wait for the consumer to purchase windows 7 and have to deal with all the problems!

Hdmi Output Not Working

About a year ago, i used to use an hdmi cable to connect my computer running vista to my hdtv. Everything worked great. After a while (a few weeks), the hdmi sound stopped working, and the hdmi device disappeared from sound. I never found an answer to the problem. Then i upgraded to windows 7 and the problem persisted. After a little while longer, every time i connected to my tv, the image on the screen would turn yellow. So now neither sound or video is working correctly. I know it is the computer's issue because it is the same on both of my tvs. How can i fix this problem?

Hdmi Audio Problem

I know that there have been other topics posted regarding this, but it is driving me crazy. I have an hp dv4-1430us. It was running vista, and i did the free update to windows 7 64bit. I have been using the hdmi out to watch movies on my hdtv regularly. All of a sudden the hdmi icon is gone from the playback devices. I have checked to see if disabled and disconnected devices were visible and they were. I tried every suggestion on the other post, to no avail. I updated every driver available by model number on the hp website, and intel driver wont load because hp has a modified driver they use and cant load anything but that.

I even tried using the spdif, and that does not work either.

Hdmi - No Option For Audio

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit and i am having problems with my hdmi port/plug. Before this problem, the hdmi was working perfectly. Once i plug in my hdmi, the video appears on the tv and not the audio. So i go to the sound options in control panel, check to view disabled and disconnected devices, but there is no hdmi audio out option. The tv is set to receive hdmi, i've downloaded all the drivers, and i'm frustrated to my wits end.

Hdmi Sound Problem

I recently purchased a projector for displaying movies on my laptop. I also purchased a hdmi cord to connect the computer to the projector and use a set of old desktop computer speakers. I normally connect the hdmi to the projector via the laptop and plug my computer speakers into my laptop for sound. Just recently the sound does not work. I have tried everything. Speakers work fine on laptop alone, speaker works fine on the projector, computer speakers are fine as well.

The only time the sound does not work is when the hdmi is plugged in. I know that the cord is working for the video component because it will allow the computer to come up on the screen shen using the hdmi cord, except no sound will come from the laptop when the speakers are added or even without. As soon as ou disconnect the hdmi the sounds work fine. I tried every "check" i could find and nothing works. It has worked fine in the past.

Hdmi Sound Out Disappeared

I'm running windows 7 ultimate on an hp 8710p laptop, and i have it connected via an hdmi cable to my hdtv. I was running vista before with no problems, and after i upgraded to windows 7, it still worked perfectly. I used to have to open the sound window from control panel after i plugged the laptop into the tv, i had two playback devices: speakers and digital audio (s/pdif), you would have to right click on digital audio and set it to the default device and then i would have sound on the tv, and off course i would have to change the setting again after i unplugged it from the tv.
Yesterday after i plugged it back into the tv, there was no sound. Steps i have taken to troubleshoot:

1. Plugged other hdmi devices into the tv to see if they got sound.
2. Plugged the laptop into other hdmi tv's to see if i could get sound there.
3. Downloaded the drivers from the hp website for both the graphics card and the sound card, and reinstalled them.
4. Ran a windows update to see if there isn't maybe a patch.
5. Ran the playing audio troubleshooter
6. Checked in device manager that all devices are working properly and not disabled
7. Updated the drivers in device manager (they just said that the latest drivers are installed)
8. Checked services to ensure that all services that has anything to do with audio or video are running
9. Checked the volume mixer to ensure that the volume is turned up and not muted
10. Uninstalled the graphics and sound cards, rebooted, reinstalled them, rebooted, etc.
11. Rebooted
12. Trust me, i've tried it all.

I see hundreds of postings everywhere, mostly dealing with guys that have upgraded from vista to windows 7, and then losing sound. Mine was working on windows 7, so i know that there is some hidden setting somewhere that we are not aware of, i've already spent a couple of hours reading hundreds of posts everywhere, but the troubleshooting they talk about, i've tried it all, but to no avail.

No Sound Via Hdmi After Upgrade

I upgraded a sony vaio vgx-tp3z-b from vista home premium to windows 7. I had a sharp lcd tv as the monitor connected through hdmi all worked perfectly before the upgrade but after i cannot get sound through the tv hdmi, i can plug speakers into the pc but the sound is not as good as the tv speakers. On the sound settings the digital output device(hdmi) is shown as not plugged in.

I have checked for updated drivers and the ones installed seem to be the latest and sony have no support for upgrades to windows 7. I am really stuck and frustrated, i hate being beaten, can you help?

Hdmi Output Is Black And White

Built myself a screamer, core i7 920, gigabyte x58, 6gb triple channel ocz ram and a powercolor (ati) 5770. Got it running, hooked it up via hdmi to my sony bravia 40" and everything was sweet. After about a week, the color disappeared. I get color on the sony during post and the windows 7 (x64) logo but as soon as windows loads: no color on the sony. If i switch to vga, i get color. But it is a 30 foot run to the sony and i get ghosting via vga.

I have checked and rechecked all color and resolution settings in both windows and catalyst 10. 2 control panels. I was about to rma the video card but the color during post and windows startup makes me think it will do no good. I have been scouring google for answers but as yet i haven't found the answer.

Help anyone?
