I installed the vivid drivers (the 3.19 kernel was already installed) sudo apt-get install --install-recommends libglapi-mesa-lts-vivid libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-vivid xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-vivid libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-vivid libglapi-mesa-lts-vivid:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-vivid:i386 ...

No, this is not normal at all: it sounds like you have a problem with the X display manager, possibly a missing driver. You should search for error messages in /var/log/Xorg* (easy to spot: EE is an error, WW is just a warning) and via the command dmesg. You may try several different combinations, like dmesg | grep driver dmesg | grep Xorg dmesg ...

For me, it turned out to be a Rock Candy branded XBox controller. Unplugged it and the machine went to sleep for the first time in months.

You somehow enabled DPI scaling on your windows install, the programs that look correct are written to support non default DPIs the ones that look blurrly and weirdly sized where not. The only solution is to turn off the scaling or seeing if updated versions are released that do support non default DPI settings.

Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports resolution up to 1920×1200 through HDMI and 2560×1600 through DisplayPort. You should be safe. Your Lenovo T430 has Mini DisplayPort connector on left side, so you can even reach for 30" or 32" displays with 2560×1600 (like Dell UltraSharp series). I'm writing this answer from Lenovo with HD Graphics 4000 connected through ...

I had the same issue and it was driving me mad! I finally solved it by increasing the Video Memory on the virtual machine. Power off the virtual machine Right click on it in the inventory and go to "Edit Settings..." Click on the Video Card on the right hand side select "Auto-detect settings" Restart the virtual machine Go to Full Screen (For Real This ...

I believe that there is no problem. The correct total screen resolution is shown by the Control Panel Display applet and by the graphics control panel and by the dxdiag utility. However, websites report the resolution as given by the browser's JavaScript window.screen object (see reference), which is the adjusted size that is usable in the browser for ...

I had a similar issue. Mine was using an external monitor on a laptop with Windows 7. Switched the external monitor to a high resolution at home, then went to work because of the lower specification monitor it would not display. :-( As the main screen was set to the external monitor every time I plugged it in the screen resolution window would default to ...

I have an e6420 and use an external monitor. I'm able to get higher resolution. You can also use both laptop screen and external monitor as dual monitor.

I upgraded to Windows 10 an encountered a problem with my TV's resolution (plugged in as a HDMI monitor): though I could still "set" a custom resolution in NVidia's Control Panel, it would keep the Windows 10 resolution, even after restarting and such, with fully upgraded drivers. I fixed it by following the advice from here, which says: Go to the ...

It looks like you are missing the drivers for your video adapter. Install the motherboard drivers, mainly the chipset and display adatper and you should see the name change to something other than Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4305#dl This motherboard has a built in VGA adapter. The link ...

The only thing that has worked so far was buying a Mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 cable. 3840x2160 @ 60Hz works great now. It's disappointing that the Intel folks refuse to acknowledge the "maximum bandwidth exceeded" bug.

if I use a HDMI converter on the VGA cable and connect to my TV, will I get widescreen resolution? No. Not automatically, and/or if the problem is the fact that you are using VGA in the first place. This is simply because a converter cannot introduce more data than is already there; it can only convert the data that is already there to some other form. ...

You'll need a dual-link DVI adapter, instead of a single-link DVI adapter. After reading many forums from multiple places, it sounds like that's the problem you're having. I found a post from Apple that you can read here The title of the forum post states your exact problem, and I saw the same thing being said on a few other forums (non-Apple forums)

It finally does work in Windows 10 although many apps still would not scale correctly. It works almost as good as on OSX. For higher DPI 1st monitor (200% scale) For lower DPI 2nd monitor (100% scale) It is important NOT to use following scaling (it should be set to 100%). By default using MacBook retina driver pack it would be set to 150/200%.

Just give a try to VMware Workstation Technology Preview 2015. This the "beta" version of Workstation 12. It supports officially highDPI displays. I just tested it on a linux host with a 4K monitor and it supports this resolution pretty well.

A little late to the party, but: The recommended way of handle resolutions in Windows is not to use CustomVideoModes, but instead to install the Guest Additions to the guest and then use the "Auto resize gest display" feature. This works because the Guest additions install a VirtualBox display adapter which supports the resizing. The CustomVideoModes don't ...

I have a laptop that I connect to different external monitors at different locations, sometimes I connect to my laptop from a desktop machine so I get the benefits of a fullsized keyboard/mouse/monitor.. This causes me grief because they're all different resolutions and despite selecting "Full Screen", that doesn't seem to save for me. If I work at home at ...

If I am not mistaken I believe your ViewSonic owners manual states that you should set the resolution to 1920 x 1080 in the Catalyst menus and then set the monitor scaling to 1360 x 768.
