What Dell calls "Premier Color" and HP calls "Dreamcolor" is marketing-speak for 10-bits per channel color. They are also pre-calibrated with a selection of color profiles for professional work in (especially) video and television, also applicable to photography and graphic design, which you can find in their specs. You can use the full capabilities of a ...

The fix to this issue is now down to the stable channel release, and as of now is included with 39.0.2171.95 m version of Google Chrome.

I have bought the monitor and yes, Dell Inspiron 1764 supports the resolution of 1920x1200. Also I've understood that Intel HD Graphics is the first generation of Intel HD Graphics, so it does not have any model number. But I have not find any specs that mention the maximum resolution for HDMI.

First of all, it's hard to give a clean-cut answer when we don't know what outputs your laptop has, and what inputs your monitors have. If your laptop has a DisplayPort 1.2 output, you can daisy-chain two monitors through it. So yes, it's possible. Your graphics card surely has the muscles to run two full-HD monitors, provided your laptop can provide output ...

For low PPI monitors like your 1080p Asus, you can set up scaling. Right click on the desktop, Personalize, Display and move the Change the size of all items slider all the way left (to "Smaller"). After this is done you need just to sign out and sign in back.

According to my knowledge - no. When you connect remotely, there is some scaling done. But when you work on your notebook, the resolution is 1:1 to your real life, physical pixels. Buy new notebook, with higher resolution. That's why they are more expensive. They've got more physical pixels.

Yes, it can. 1280x1024 will work. Intel 865 can even do better: The GMCH's analog port uses an integrated 350 MHz RAMDAC that can directly drive a standard progressive scan analog monitor up to a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels with 32-bit color at 75 Hz.

Note: Windows 8.1, contrary to Microsoft's claims, does not truly support running multiple DPI's on separate monitors. I have a laptop with windows 8.1 and 3840x2160 16" screen. In order for dialog boxes, windows etc. to be a usable size it must run at 200% scale (comparable real estate to a typical 16" 1080p display but with UI elements, text, and photos ...

NoSquint is a very useful Firefox add-on that allows you to customize, per-site, both font size and page layout (width). You'll soon have all the sites you frequently visit tweaked to delight your eyeballs.

I am an oldtimer myself(74), and what I do on a win pc: Hold down Ctrl, and rotate the mouse wheel forward or backward to enlarge/reduce whatever is on screen. Just an idea, robertg

Another solution With a different approach is to simply the screen content by removing distractions and adjusting fonts is to use a program such as Readability: https://readability.com/addons It is free takes a minute or two to install and require only a click. Available for browsers other than Firefox.

Don't reduce the screen resolution, merely change the font sizes. For an LCD monitor, it has a native resolution which matches the dots on the screen. Any other resolution will be less crisp. I agree on computer glasses. I've got reading glasses, and another set where I asked my optician to set the focus at the distance where my screen is when I'm sitting ...

the problem is caused by a settings on Host (if it's Win 8.1). It is caused by DPI Scaling. One of the possibile workaround can be: On the Host, find the vmware.exe executable, right click, properties, compatibility, under Settings check "Disable display scaling on High DPI settings". Close and re-open vmware workstaion. Regards.

I was having the same problem with a 15.6" laptop with a resolution of 1900 x 1080. And I agree, as our eyes wear out, shall we say, we tend to need bigger letters. i.e. bigger type face. Whilst every monitor allows the size to be increased by 125/150% this reduces the number of windows you can have on the screen. Nothing magic about that. I have hankered ...

.Try running the following command at a Windows PowerShell prompt: Get-WmiObject -Class CIM_VideoControllerResolution|select Caption This queries the operating system (WMI) for the resolutions supported by the video controller. I'm not completely certain but I believe all of the information about a graphics card and it's capabilities is reported to ...

I have a similar set-up: 38" HD TV 3 meters away (10 ft) 1600 X 900 It comes with a warning message, saying: "If your resolution is below 1600 x 1200, some items may not fit on screen." but I never had any problems (however, if I ever do have problems, there are ways around this - more info below). Now you must change 3 different settings: Display Size ...

Some quick background Pixels are the smallest physical "dots" that are lit up on the monitor to display an image. They are the building blocks and define all of the tradeoffs. The monitor is manufactured with a specific arrangement of pixels, which is its "native" resolution. Characters are drawn on the screen by defining which pixels are illuminated ...

Your video card determines the max supported resolutions. If you have the optional discrete GT750M video card see: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gt-750m/specifications Intel states: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/quick-reference-guide-to-intel-processor-graphics 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family (Intel® Iris™ ...

As far as I'm aware, this is a bug/limitation in Windows. I also just tested this scenario in the Windows 10 technical preview and it seems that the taskbar issue has been fixed. (Desktop icons are still huge.)

No, there is no way of doing that on Windows 7 -- display scaling method is global for all monitors. However, Windows 8 does exactly what you want -- you can choose different scaling methods separately for different monitors. It also has a tool to scale different parts of interface independently (e.g. making only the text bigger but not the icons, etc.). ...

not as far as I know, it's global. Alternative would be to change the resolution on the laptop screen.

I use this utility to get the screen resolution: https://github.com/jhford/screenresolution $ /usr/local/bin/screenresolution get 2>&1 | grep -oE 'Display 0: [0-9]+' | grep -Eo '[0-9]+$' 1920

The graphics depends on your Graphics Card as is it HD or not. Even if you scale, buy or do something else the graphics wont be better, Check your graphics card is it HD or If not i would recommend to get a HD card if you want HD Graphics. To check your Graphics Card Search dxdiag.exe in Start menu --> Open it --> Display There you will find info about your ...

Buying a higher res screen doesn't make the images a higher resolution! They are blurry because you are scaling them up. I suspect that 200% will be better if that doesn't make things too big. What you are finding is a fundamental issue of having a monitor with an inappropriate resolution:physical size ratio. Some app UIs will be vector based and scale ...

A co-worked found a solution to this problem. It would be hard to pinpoint all the environment settings changed since I first got the VM, but hopefully this will be enough: Have guest additions installed (for either Virtualbox or VMware, whatever you're using). DELETE the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf (or to be safer, mv it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.unused or ...

Here are the steps: 1. Check the main computer screen resolution. ex: 1366×768 2. Go to VM player settings->select Display->specify the max screen resolution. ex: 1600×1200 3. Launch Virtual OS. 4. Modify the display resolution in Virtual OS –> 1366×768. 5. Restart Virtual OS. you should see the Virtual OS screen fits into the main OS screen resolution.
