I'm a engineer with people skills. I enjoy politics, English language, mathematics, and programming. In my free time, I build with LEGO bricks, I dance, and I break things (generally in order to fix them again).

I have a B.S. in Engineering, and I work as an IT Project Manager in the Transportation Industry.

comment Should I buy extra RAM for an old computer
@yuvi Also, if you get a SSD, you can move that if and when you get another computer. However, you won't be able to take DDR2 RAM with you. Food for thought...

To confirm you should completely uninstall and remove your sound card drivers, reboot your computer, and reinstall the sound card drivers.

It might help if you explain the context. Why are you trying to set that low of a resolution?

comment Why is my 3200x1800 laptop delivering a blurry image to my 1080p external monitor? (HDMI, Win 7)
It sounds like it's a problem with your monitor, not what's driving it, if you're having problems via HDMI and VGA with two different laptops.

comment Is it possible have speakers pluged in side speaker out?
This doesn't exactly meet what you're looking for, but the solution I went with for this exact problem was to use a spliter, and then power off my speakers when I didn't need them.

comment Computer starts and shuts down. After pushing the power on, it functions normally
I don't have anything specific. When we first got a machine that did that, I contacted Dell, and our support tech assured me it was normal. Sure enough, every computer since then has exhibited the same behavior. I just assumed it was a new normal since then.
