I had exactly the same problem as you people with high DPI on Windows 10. The only solution that worked for me is this link: http://windows10_dpi_blurry_fix.xpexplorer.com/ Windows 10 is great, but the blurry font everywhere was not so nice to say the least. But the above fix will work perfect.

I had this problem too but was able to fix it with the specific programs that has the issue (like Steam and Rainmeter). You'll need to do the following: Note down which specific programs have the font problem. Right-click on the program icon (not the shortcut) and choose properties. Click the "Compatibility" tab. Check the box labeled "Disable display ...

Most likely no, you cannot use a custom resolution which is higher than the recommended resolution. For flat panel displays, there is a hard limit on how many pixels are available. Unlike on CRT displays, flat panel displays also use distinct pixels, so scaling (by anything other than an integer factor) produces a very ugly image. Hence, it is recommended ...

When you load a default copy of Windows on existing hardware, the built in Windows drivers have a limited set of resolutions. Go to Lenovo's Support Site and get the drivers for your laptop.

I had the same question in the 2007, because my computer doesn't supported my default tv resolution 1366x768 and I found this: WHY does 1366 x 768 exist? This has to do with a 1 megapixel processing boundary of easily available chipsets for VRAM ( video memory ) and video processing display drivers. Its a standard memory size of importance to chip ...

At the time the first computer wide screens became popular, the usual resolution on 4:3 panels was 1024x768 (XGA display standard). So, for simplicity and backward compatibility, the XGA resolution was kept as a basis to make the WXGA resolution, so that XGA graphics could be displayed easily on WXGA screens. Just extending the width and keeping the same ...

According to Wikipedia (emphasis mine): The basis for this otherwise odd seeming resolution is similar to that of other "wide" standards – the line scan (refresh) rate of the well-established "XGA" standard (1024x768 pixels, 4:3 aspect) extended to give square pixels on the increasingly popular 16:9 widescreen display ratio without having to ...

768 is the sum of two powers of 2 (512 + 256), and 1366 is 16/9 times 768, rounded up to the next integer. But only the person who selected that resolution can answer the "why". Some people just like powers of 2. Also, 768 times 1366 is just over one Mebipixel (2^20), which is about 1.05 Megapixel (1.05 * 10^6). 768 times 1365 is just under that, so ...

If you do not want to go back to a 'basic session', try this: Close the session if you have it open. Just 'orange x' it out. No need to shut it down. When closed, some settings behaviors change. Right click on your VM and under 'Connect', there should now be 'Edit Session Settings'. This should now bring you back to the dialog that lets you select ...

This wouldn't be the easiest solution, but what should work is using the task scheduler. First, check the event logs, I would imagine that something as significant as a dock connecting or disconnecting would be logged somewhere there. Once you've found the event for the docking, click on it, and you should have the option to attach a task to this event. ...

Resolution issues when docking and undocking is a serious shortcoming in the surface pro 3, or is it windows 8? I am running a single external monitor (2560 x 1440) via the docking station and outputting to the external monitor only. So a simple set up. The ONLY solution (to accurately render the screen in the correct resolution) is to reboot the surface ...

Reseat the cable from your computer going to your monitor (vga, dvi, display port, whatever the type) on each end. If there is a cable nearby, switch them out and see if it still has the issue.

(I Agree with fixer1234) on this: There is a determinable difference (by bare eye) between 300 and 600 DPI text. It is quite a bit harder to see gain of passing 600 DPI. The human eye has a practical resolution limit near 1/30° (angle), so viewing distance plays a role here. When it comes to images the same viewing distance applies, but you might see a ...

I want to make lots of images based on a source image! Obviously I could do this by hand in Adobe Photoshop... and this would take a silly amount of manual time. You are so right. Let the computer do the easy repetitive work; that's what they are good at. As Tom Ruh's answer notes, you can use ImageMagick for this. However, there is a problem: ...

As long as you can handle some command line and write some simple BASH scripting. You can use ImageMagick

I had a similar issue. I got an ATI Mobility Radeon video card. I have changed the scalling options (set to 0% Overscan) in the AMD Catalyst Control Center/My Digital Flat-Panels.

Most screen resolution issues on laptop computers are due to the video driver. For the ACER Aspire One AO531h, Acer official support only provides drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, so I would recommend you to try the official Intel driver for Windows 8. Just download and install the Intel Driver Update Utility, it will detect your hardware and will let ...

It is not possible to set the screen scaling for individual monitors in Windows 7 och 8.x. This is a feature that comes in the upcoming Windows 10 release. As Windows 10 will be released within a month and is avaliable as a preview at the moment I would suggest you install the preview or wait for the release to solve your problem.

First make sure your VGA cable is inserted into both your PC and computer firmly - make sure it is not loose. Also check that your TV settings and change the resolution until you see it change

Also set ColorDepth using: ControlPanel→ Display → Screen Resolution → Advance Settings → Monitor → Color After this in regedit, manually search for DefaultSettings.XResolution, DefaultSettings.YResolution and ...

Below are some methods that could perhaps solve the problem, singly or several together : Method 1 : Use a tool to force the resolution Here are some command line tools that can change the screen resolution : QRes, NirCmd, Display Changer. Method 2 : Registry updates Search the registry for ...
