You need a DisplayPort->Dual Link DVI adapter, like this: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A/mini-displayport-to-dual-link-dvi-adapter

Just try this: Remove $HOME/.config/monitors.xml and reboot. It should be OK.

The solution I found most useful was to set the properties of my local machine's task bar to "auto-hide" (right click on empty part of task bar, choose properties, I un-set the lock taskbar and checked the "auto-hide" property). The local task bar still appears when I mouse all the way down to the bottom of the screen. Otherwise, I see and can use the ...

According to the VMware Knowledge Base for Retina display support: iMac 5K 5120 x 2880 retina display is currently not supported in VMware Fusion. Hopefully they add support soon.

Everything was too large to be able to modify the DPI in the slider in the control panel. I went to the registry to HKCU/Control Panel/Desktop and changed 'LogPixels' to 120 (it was at 480). Logging out and logging back in fixed the issue.

Open the Charms bar, select Search, and search for Make text and other items larger or smaller, then try dragging the DPI slider all the way to the left. Then tap the Apply button at the bottom of the window. You may need to scroll down to see the slider or Apply button.

A bigger monitor will certainly give you better options. You can e.g. increase the DPI to 150% (even try 200%). The settings are in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display. Another option to consider is a high contrast theme. That works well with the internet explorer in Windows 8.1 and somewhat in Windows 10. I have made a little settings ...

What matters is the relative size of the pixels of course. The monitor you've listed has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, the same as your 22" That means that each pixel will be visibly larger if you keep the monitor at the same distance and therefore, the image will be slightly larger too. The downside being that you may find the edge-to-edge viewing ...

Despite not knowing what Operating System you are using on the laptop, this page will contain the answer for you. The key is to use the Function Key (Fn) and press F4, which will toggle the display: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Display-and-Video/How-do-I-connect-my-laptop-to-an-external-monitor/td-p/519487

Do a clean boot and see if the box still exists. If it is gone, slowly start re-enabling the items disabled previously. As soon as the box comes back, the last thing enabled is what is causing it.

I suggest forcing screen resolution via xorg.conf: Section "Screen" Identifier "Configured Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" SubSection "Display" Modes "1920x1080" EndSubSection EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" Modeline ...

I solved my own problem, but I'd like to post the solution for anyone else who may come across this issue, as I don't believe I'm the only one who's ever had this problem. The issue is that when running Windows via Boot Camp, the Retina display is reported at its full resolution (2880x1800). This results in really tiny things on screen until the proper DPI ...

I've got the exact same issue and i'm running Win 8 64bit AMD FX-6100 AMD 7770 Since we're both running AMD i'd assume this is an issue with their drivers. I've had this issue for a while now and the only fix I've found (which is a temporary one) Is to toggle the display upscaling on either of my monitors. After a prolonged shut down like yourself I go ...

I have changed the size of the normal cmd window using the Defaults context menu item (which appears when you click the top left corner of the cmd window). I also changed the font and this made an acceptable window/font size. However, the Powershell window initially opens at the new size then shrinks to the size you can see in the screen shot ...

I searched over the web and found the information about this. So, I tried the following. And it seems working. 1) Make a *.desktop file under the .config/autostart/ directory. $ vi $HOME/.config/autostart/xrandr-startup.desktop [Desktop Entry] Name=xrandr-startup GenericName=xrandr-startup Comment=Start these up at login ...

An Acer V233HL has native resolution of 1920 x 1080 which is 16:9, not 16:10. Even if you were able to modify the firmware, it still wouldn't turn it into a 16:10 monitor due to physical limitations in TN panels.

You could modify the EDID, but most likely it must be hardware-compatible, meaning the aspect ratio will have to be respected. The EDID contains the name and specifications of the monitor's technical data including it's capabilities (res, refresh). The EDID can be re-written using special software. Theres a python script called edid-rw that can be found ...

In Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit, the easiest solution is just to go to Control Panel, and in the menu that the option to change the resolution is for you. Then, you need to go to More display modes of something simiral, search the tabs and find the option:Display all modes. When you press that button, a message will pop up saying that it will now show all ...

Solution: by compensating for overscanning in linux solved the problem, using the 1280x720 resolution. xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set underscan on xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set "underscan hborder" 30 --set "underscan vborder" 18 Depending on your screen, but 30 and 18 worked perfectly for the JVC. Found on this post ...

Not sure about the HDMI resolutions and your driver, but for the part where the edges of the picture get cut off on the TV, check your overscan settings. http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/27/hd-101-overscan-and-why-all-tvs-do-it/
