Dell :: Videos Play In Full Screen..want Wide Screen!!
Mar 23, 2009
whenever I play a Dvd or a downloaded video the video plays with solid black bars on the left and right side..
I assume this is full screen! I want to watch everything in Wide screen ( black bars on top running horizontally) have gone into my settings etc..including my ATI ( Catalyst Control Center) and tweaked settings still no joy!
Even on sites like You tube the same happens! Any ideas? Also posted a while ago on a reliable free data backup site! Had Dell Data Safe on-line not impressed and dumped it!
Did anyone receive their Studio XPS 13 or 16 with any defects? I received my xps 16 with a screen defect (1080p 1900 x 1080 RGB LED screen) of 1 pixel wide vertical yellow line. Dell is arranging to pick it up and repair it. I am not happy about that as I expect to receive a functional machine.
I did some search and it seems this yellow (or other colour) vertical line issue with Dell laptop screen has been an ongoing issue from 2006 (or earlier than that)...
i have recently purchased and HP Envy 17 laptop and have been trying to backup all of my iphone 5s photos and videos onto thelaptop however everytime i try to play videos either through the photos folder or the photos library app nothing works.In the photo app the app just freezes and crashes and in the photos documents folder media player just comes up not responding. This hapens with the vast majority of my videos i have seen that other people have had the same issure and i have installed the VLC video app as suggested and still nothing works.
there has been an IOS update since i started taking videos however this makes no diffeence as the handful of videos that do work are from both before and after the update so it can not be an issue with my phone and the videos i have taken in the last few days dont work.

My sound is no longer working. At all even off of my videos stored on my laptop. Around the same time I lost my sound my laptop also stopped playing and videos from the internet (YouTube, Facebook, Etc.) I've installed all the driver as I had read. But and still nothing.
When I start up my HP 1000-1433TU Notebook PC the Sound and Audio cuts out and becomes unable to play videos. How do I get the sound working and stay working as well as the videos becoming playable? so far the only option that has worked is shutting down the PC and tuning it back on, but the issues reoccurs within 10 minutes.
Whenever I try playing a Movie on my Studio's Blu-Ray drive & output it to my 26" LCD TV thru the HDMI, the picture on the screen is letterboxed on all 4 sides. It shows up as not much bigger than my laptop screen in size.
I have a studio xps 16 and whenever I plug it via HDMI to my tv (which has a 1080p resolution) there are black bars all around the image, meaning the image is smaller than the tv. I've set the resolution of the tv (from Catalyst Control Center) to 1920x1080 and it still won't do full screen...
I just got my Studio 17, and there's little things that really bother me:
1) My F keys act as a function+F in games and not the actual F key, so I can't cast spells that are bound to my F keys. Anyone know how to disable it so that if I want to see my battery status or Wifi status, it requires the function key to be held down?
2) Some of the games I play such as warcraft 3 have 2 black lines on the right/left of my screen. They won't let me go full screen no matter what I try
My problem is first i had clean my laptop yesterday with a cleaner for laptops l disable my laptop battery and clean it and put it with towel cover for two hours and i turned it on then the laptop work fine but the keyboard has a problem it type different thing than i typed then i disable it and put the keyboard under the sun for about 3 hours and the problem still founded then i open my laptop and extract the motherboard and i just clean it with caution with cotton and then put the motherboard in the laptop and connect all the wire with it thn i close the cover of laptop and turned th laptop on and just the fan run at full speed and the light works also the cd room but the motherboard not working my qustion is what the problem behind the full speed fan and blank screen is it a disabled hardware like cpu or gpu or ram...
My 2 weeks old HP Mini 200-4220tu makes random static noises (ZZZZZTT sound) when i play music/watch youtube vids.. i have installed/reinstalled idt high def audio codec from the hp website but the problem still persists.. i already performed hard reset (as i have read from other posts here: remove battery and power for a few mins) to no avail.. the static sound wont go away ...
During recent travel I have noticed that while watching videos on fullscreen with VLC Player or Media Player Classic on the laptops own monitor, there seems to be a weird tearing-like effect on the screen.
That "problem" however does not exist with Windows Media Player, or on an external monitor (as at home).
Any ideas what might cause this? I'm running Windows XP SP3 with all the recent updates and my video card is GF 7900 GTX 512MB.
