That is correct. The picture will be scaled to fit in a given resolution. It might not be the same picture though. Like when the movie's resolution is greater than the projector's. It makes sense that detail, or call it resolution, will be lost. Using a 1280x720 resolution movie as an example, a projector set at 800x600 will have to throw away a lot of ...

Of course it matters. Even at smaller projected sizes, the resolution makes a huge difference. HD video is between 1 and 2 million pixels, if the projector cannot display all of them, there will be a loss in video quality. Additionally, depending on the distance from the image and the size of the image, you may be actually able to see the pixels on the ...

Others have talked about the differences in the panel (WLED versus GB-r backlight). But there is also a difference in the electronics - where the P2415Q is superior. The older monitor must be driven as two logical displays over MST to run at full refresh. It appears to the video card as two 1920x2160 screens and it is up to the video driver to tile them ...

There are so many ways to do this but if you want to stick to only/mostly bash, here's two approaches. system_profiler has an option to output to XML. Use this to put the output to a variable or file like so making sure to include the double quotes: someVar="$(system_profiler SPDisplaysDataType -xml)" This returns an array under _items called ...

I'm running 2560×1600 on Intel HD 4000 without any tweaks: There are some pitfalls like attempts to use HDMI display connection at standard HDMI 1.2 which cannot handle that resolution (you need HDMI 1.3, and above 2560×1600 you will need HDMI 1.4); or using cable with insufficient parameters for given link speed etc. Add display type and HDMI level of ...

For those who tried to solve the issue by installed this package with no luck, try removing it first, then insert VBoxGuestAdditions.iso image (under Program Files directory of VirtualBox) into your virtual machine, and then run VBoxLinuxAdditions.run file under your guest operating system.

Part of me wonders if you changed the resolution in the settings. Ensure the screen resolution in Windows Display Settings matches what the laptop LCD supports. However, it sounds like you merely need to install the correct video drivers for the particular brand of GPU in the laptop. My guess from using the Google machine is that the GPU is an: ATI Radeon ...

I know this is old but it's the first entry on google so I'll tell you my solution to this problem. I already had this happening quite often and it's really annoying. What worked for me is: right click the video go to settings enable hardware acceleration reload the page. Many people say to uncheck the hardware acceleration but for me this worked.

How displays work: the monitor is sending the EDID information to the PC. This is how the PC identifies what resolutions are available to the specific monitor. The VGA cable is allowing this information to be sent from the monitor back to the PC. The PC then stores temporary this information. Once the system is shutdown, the EDID information is cleared. ...

Ubuntu uses different video drivers than Windows. Additionally, most "Smart" devices (TVs included) use a GNU/Linux distribution as their OS. So when you use a Windows computer, it is connecting to a different OS with different drivers than a GNU/Linux to GNU/Linux connection.

Okay, well, it's been twenty days and I think I've fixed it. I had forgotten until about thirty seconds after I posted the original question that I had actually had had a minor hardware/software change; I'd gotten an external hard drive for Christmas and installed it (and its drivers and associated software) right before the problem began. I'd also left it ...

I'm guessing you are using hdmi for the monitor, but even if you aren't, look through the control center for a property called overscan. Make sure the setting is 0. I have the same issue with my ati card. If the overscan is greyed out, try setting the resolution to 1080p instead of 1920 x 1080.

Recently I was unable to set my VGA connected monitor to it's native resolution because of corrupted EDID information. I have summarized my solution in a kind of tutorial: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1948 Try if it helps.

Have a look at your laptop keyboard. Look for a symbol like this on one of the function keys: Hold down Fn and press the appropriate Function key (that has the logo pictured above) to change your laptop to only send output to the external monitor. This can also be achieved with the Win + P key combination in Windows 7. What you want is the "projector ...

Andy Schneider wrote a script, that can change screen resolution via Pinvoke and ChangeDisplaySettings Win32API. You can get it on the TechNet gallery. There is also modified by Timothy Mui version of this script, that supports multiple monitors. Here is the modified script itself, just in case: # ...

If I am reading you right, it still works with MDP to HDMI. Perhaps this isn't worth doing, but you could try doing a system restore to a point when the display was working properly. You might also look into your boot options. I think this is in the msconfig tab for boot. Perhaps somehow the "base video" option got enabled. It limits you to 640-480 ...

Make sure that your hardware supports whatever resolution you intend to use. Boot your Linux guest in VirtualBox and press c in the GRUB menu (it's a blue screen in Debian) and then in the grub> prompt use the vbeinfo command to check the supported resolutions by your hardware. It's in the format of 1366x768x32. Press Esc to exit grub> prompt and ...

it's a bug and you cannot get a better resolution. I'm stuck with the same issue and it sucks big time if you need your gear for productive office work and need realiability ... VMWare admitted to it Jan 5th (right here - https://communities.vmware.com/thread/497993 ), but hasn't put forth a solution yet. Way to go, VMWare ... maybe it's gonna be a special ...

I actually had this working in Windows 8.0 with some drivers which I no longer have when I updated my OS to 8.1. Now its impossible to get native resolution on win 8.1 with this laptop. I tried installing the Intel 500 drivers for Win7 (VGA_Intel_v.8.14.10.2003_Win7x86), but a lot of items are totally unreadable due to video corruption. Win 8.1 seems to be ...

HDMI and DVI-D are electrically compatible. The main exceptions for regular computer use are that HDMI supports audio (which DVI doesn't, and your laptop's output may or may not provide), and DVI allows for an analog link (which HDMI doesn't). Neither should be a significant issue in your case. It also appears that some graphics cards might not be able to ...

An answer of sorts. It's fixed by the way. Uninstalled every "NVidia" program. Windows rebooted and "discovered" the new graphics card and installed its own drivers (nvidia version 3.07 rather then 3.27 which was on there before). It came back as full HD (with the wide horizontal borders) but went in to screen resolution settings and the 2560 option was ...

Simply rebooting the server after having unplugged the monitor fixed it for me. Windows 7 detected there was no monitor, and did the right thing (nVidia GPU).

YAYS Userscript. Check out this. For me it works.
