I can't find any solution to fix it, and can't change the resolution manually. The color depth is only 16 bit and resolution is 640 x 480. The OS runs fine, but it is difficult to work with such resolution.

Information about my PC configuration:

  • Operating system: Windows7 32bit
  • Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 1.70GHz
  • Display Adapters: Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
  • Monitor: AOC1950W

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

  • If possible, could you give us a little more information with regards to your PC specification (hardware etc), and why you can't change your resolution? Is it that you don't know how, or the feature is disabled, or hidden? – Richard Hedges Oct 8 '12 at 11:56

I'm assuming you have a more advanced graphics adapter installed.

If your installed graphics adapter is listed as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" then you're missing the correct driver for your graphics adapter.

Install the proper driver for your graphics adapter and you will be able to adjust the resolution.


I know this is the most common answer but open the device manager and remove your graphic driver. Then install it again.
