Sony :: Can't Change HDMI Resolution Output Correct TV Resolution
May 29, 2009
My TV's native resolution is 1366 x 768. My VAIO FW-190 has Intel Chipset and both the Windows built in software and Intel provided graphic card settings software do not show the 1366x768 resolution. I can't find a way to set the Vaio's HDMI output to that resolution.
I decided to try playing some 720p video on my Sanyo 42" LCD HDTV (native res 1366x768). I assumed it would be as easy as just connecting an HDMI cable and setting my m1530 to clone desktop.. I couldn't have been more wrong.
After doing some research it appears that LCD HDTVs aren't as flexible as regular LCD monitors with respect to HDMI input. No matter what I do, the screen always appears cropped around the edges on my TV.
What I've tried so far: 1) Setting a custom 1366x768 resolution in the nVidia control panel. 2) Tried setting my hdtv as primary monitor and setting the res. 3) Used Powerstrip (program) in an attempt to force a 1366x768 res (not sure if I'm doing this entirely correctly, I'm a little confused over what the correct advanced timings should be). 4) I hear this issue is called "overscan", so I looked through my TV menu for any overscan or zoom/image scaling options but couldn't find any.
I'm using the 179.28 Nvidia driver.
I'm running out of things to try, does anyone know how to make this thing work?
I have a problem with hdmi output to my TV screen.
I have Y510P (i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz, Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600
& NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M, Win 8.1 64-bit(6.3 build 9600), all with latest drivers )
My TV is Panasonic TH-L32B6. When I connect my laptop to TV it shows me awful picture quality and notification that “this is not optimal screen resolution for the primary display. The optimal res. Is 1280x720”. But with 1280x720 it’s still awful. It works fine just with 1024x768 res. I have no such a problem with my other TV LG 47LS570Y. How can i fix picture quality with higher resolution? I tried another OS like Ubuntu and a couple of hdmi cables…(see attachment)
I have a FW 290 with the ati graphics card. When I connect the laptop to my tv with the hdmi cable the resolution is displayed correctly on the tv at 1920*1080. However, when I disconnect the cable the laptop resolution goes to 1440*900 instead of 1600*900. So there are black lines on the edges of the screen. If I go to display settings or to the ati catalyst control center I cannot change the resolution back to 1600*900. 1440*900 is displayed as the max. The only way I can fix this is by restarting the computer.
I'm weighing my options for multi-screen setup for my new E6400. The two obvious set-ups are:
1. Laptop screen + monitor through VGA or DisplayPort. Less $ 2. Dock + 2 monitors through VGA & DVI, or DVI & DisplayPort or DVI & DVI (depending on dock) more $$$
Is there a possible way of setting up two-monitors through the laptop without a dock by going through the VGA & DisplayPort that are already there? What is the maximum output resolution on the VGA port
I currently own a dv5-1235dx. The native resolution for this laptop is 1280x800. However, when I connect the HDMI cable to my laptop, the maximum resolution my display settings will allow is 1024x768. This makes it look awful on the TV, stretching a 4:3 display across a 16:9 screen.
I have used the search, and this is the same issue as many others have described, and only provided an answer for Nvidia drivers.
I have an e1505 with XP pro installed. The video cardis ati mobility x1400. I have all but the trackpad drivers installed. Quickset is installed as well. The problem is when I close the lid of the laptop. The screen seems to resize and keep the icons at a lower resolution position. If I restart the computer, the icons loose the position and go into a standard grid on the left side of the screen. I can manually restart explorer through task manager. If I do this before i restart, the icons go back to a normal, non changed position. After restart, there is no change.
This issue only started after I plugged in an external monitor for the first time.
I have turned off quickset, and reinstalled the ATI drivers.
how to change the screen resolution but, it won't stay at recommended resolution when I restart my laptop, it keeps going back too the smallest resolution. I have to go and change the resolution every time I turn it back on.
How can I get the exact resolution of 1360x768 (720p) in my HP dv2700 using the HDMI cabel? I currently have the 179.48 drivers installed and I couldnt figure a way to get a 1360x768 !? I tried using customs resolution but it wont work, the TV (samsung) keeps giving me a 1920x1080 which is not the native resolution.
I also own a desktop with an Nvidia 8800gt graphics card and it recognizes the 1360x768 resolution immediately, I dont why this is happening since both the laptop and desktop use similar drivers?
My brother just bought an Acer Aspire 3680.He purchased 1 gig of DDR2 Memory from Crucial. When we get to the desktop the screen is fine at first then the screen goes off and back on with 8 bit display. 512 DDR2 came in the machine. Crucial site said he could mix memory sizes. I tried it with the 1 gig stick by itself in case the mixed memory was the problem. Same thing..I've tried 2 sticks of 512...same thing. I've tried 2 sticks of 1 gig each..same problem. This laptop won't allow any upgrade at all. Will only run correctly with (1) 512 stick. I've never seen this problem before. I've installed many memory sticks in computers. This is a first for me. What could be causing this?? Any advice would be appreciated. BTW. the computer shows the upgrade amount of memory but the display color keeps changing to 8 Bit! I change it back to 32 and it reverts back after a few moments to 8 Bit. I went to Acer and installed an updated driver for the Intel Graphics card thinking the driver would help. I haven't installed a bios update yet. Called Acer and they said to return it for repair.
I have a Thinkpad E530 which has a 1366x768 display panel. Unfortunately, This resolution began to be low for my usage (some applications don't even enter the screen entirely!), so I'm searching for a higher resolution panel (like 1600x900 or 1920x1080). Could this be made or the new screen wouldn't work?
I can't change my monitor's resolution and the screen brightness after I upgrade the windows from windows 7 ultimate to windows 8.1 pro build 9600I've already installed graphic card , but i can't change my resolution more than 1024x768 My laptop is HP 431 with intel core i3-2310m CPU @ 2.10 GHz , AMD Graphics HD 7450M , DDR3 1 GB (i don't know why , but i've already installed AMD Graphics HD 7400M Series because my notebook isn't compatible with other AMD Graphics) , OS 64-bit
I am thinking of getting the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM external monitor and use it with my y510p Lenovo laptop. My question is: Is there any way to get the 2560x1440 resolution out of the monitor using only VGA or HDMI port of this laptop?
I want to connect my acer aspire E1 572 6870 having intel HD 4400 graphics to a QNIX Q2710 1440p monitor(yet to buy). The monitor supports 2560x1440p through HDMI 1.4V. Will my laptop be able to output this resolution via hdmi?
just bought a vgn-aw11s,it's a nice machine but one thing is really bugging me.when i reset the resolution, to one that i can see without having to wear my reading glasses,it is automatically reset to the highest setting when the computer is restarted??.Also had a hard time updating the graphic's driver either from sony or nvidia(ge force 9600m gt).
I love the Sony Z but the 1600 resolution is holding me back from recommending to a client because he can't stand those very high resolutions. We purchased a FW series (16.4" w/ 1920 res) and that was too high. 1600x900 looks even worse on a 13 inch.
My question is, is there any resolution options with the Z to go lower?
The SR "Blue Label" series that Sony made for Best Buy is the perfect machine, except the for the fact that it doesn't have dedicated graphics or good battery life. Is there any way to get a Z with the lower resolution?
Many folks considering the Sony Z have been asking the question of whether or not the "Full-HD" screen offered in some configurations/countries has "too high" a resolution, given the relatively low 13.1" screen size. While I can't answer that question for you, I thought I'd post a little table that can help to understand on a comparison basis where this sits, given current products:
As you can see, this walks through the spectrum from 24" monitors through the Sony Vaio P, which currently offers the highest DPI setting that I'm aware of on any currently shipping portable PC.
A few interesting observations: For those who are accustomed to using E-Ink panels, the Z's full-HD screen offers essentially identical DPI.If you've ever seen a Sony Vaio P in-person, its admittedly very high DPI is indeed challenging for folks who don't have great short-distance vision.Even the low-resolution version of the Sony Z has a DPI that's higher than 18.4" 1080P notebooks.One source of debate relates to whether or not the Vaio Z's resolution is too high. Critics state that "magazines are 600 DPI+, how could you not read a much lower DPI"? The answer is that we're undergoing a critical transition.
The "problem" is that those who've used computers for years are actually accustomed to seeing pixels. Traditionally, operating systems and user interfaces have "assumed" a pixel density of around 100 DPI. What's changed is that we're beginning to undergo a transition from traditional displays to much higher density displays. Part of this challenge, led by E Ink, is how to effectively replace paper. In that context, viewing individual pixels is actually undesirable, while rendering fonts with authenticity is the top priority - precisely the top concern of most publishers.............
