Different Resolutions in Windows® 7
What are the various issues that may arise after setting Windows 7 to the highest resolution?
You can set any resolution on your screen with the Windows 7 Operating System with the help of the screen resolution manager. The display settings offer you resolutions ranging from 1024x768 to 2560x1600 depending on the monitor size and the type of video card that you use. The screen resolution is calculated in pixels. If you set the resolution of your screen to the maximum, the items would appear smaller and sharper. Normal Cathode Ray Tube monitor supports the screen resolutions up to 1024x768 pixels. The 24-inch screen can support a resolution of 1900x1200 pixels. For changing the resolution of your monitor working with Windows 7 Operating System, do the following - Click the 'Start' button and go to the 'Control panel'. Select 'Get appearance and personalization from appearance' and click 'Adjust screen resolution'. Go to 'Resolution' and then click 'Apply'. Click 'Keep' to get new resolution or go to revert to get the previous resolution.
Issues with resolutions in Windows 7 Operating System are given below:
- Not getting the highest resolution
- No display
- Limited resolutions
Not getting the highest resolution
Sometimes, the users find it difficult to set higher resolution standards in their Operating System. The Windows 7 monitor recognizes the resolutions of your monitor but gives you a black screen. If you don't update your video card, this issue will arise. The video card you installed cannot support high resolutions. Only updated video card can make you set up the highest resolution in Windows7. This is because updating adds additional features to your video card and can support a high range of resolutions.
Users changing the resolution to a higher value may not find the display. You know that resolutions are possible up to a certain range according to the size of your monitor i.e. if you go beyond the maximum resolution range the monitor can support, you don't get the display. The Windows 7 Operating System provides you some time to confirm your changed resolution. If you don't confirm it, there would be no issue; it would go to the previous resolution. But if you confirm it, you have to restart the system in safe mode to get it done.
Sometimes, the user finds that he could access only a small range of resolutions. He can't access the higher resolutions offered by the Operating System. This may be due to the un-identification of your video card by the Windows 7 Operating System. The small range of resolutions you get is due to the presence of default video driver present in the Operating System. You should download the correct video driver that matches your video card to fix this problem.
