  1. Is there a way to change the resolution to one that is not shown on the slider? My laptop is stuck on 1024×768 at its best, but i need 1280×800 for my 15.4″ screen.


  2. i use 22 inch monitor but when change to 1600by1200 pixel it said out of range? so wat happen with my pc?

    Klink: That usually means your video card can’t handle those settings.

  3. I cannot ajust my resolution because my display is too large to see the bottom of the screen in order to ajust screen. I cannot get the screen or objects on the screen to get small enough to see the bottom in order to even move the cirsor. Please help
