In my case, the monitor itself needed to 'reboot'.
Disconnect the monitor from the mains power and disconnect the display cable from the back of the pc/laptop. Wait about 30 seconds. Reconnect the mains power to the monitor. Reconnect the display cable to the pc/laptop. That fixed it for me.
Just a general 'rule of thumb' on this type of decision…
If the laptop is sufficiently new that the manufacturer is still making regular driver updates - stick with them.
After a year or two they usually stop; effectively abandoning your machine forever unless something major needs updating for security reasons etc.
Once that point comes, then hang onto ...
OK I feel stupid: the answer is to open the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel (right click the desktop and choose Intel Graphics Settings, then go to the Wireless Display section and increase the Picture Size to 100%. See screenshot below. You would think this would DEFAULT TO 100% (hello Intel???) but it was defaulted to 75%.
Install - regular install without removing old drivers/software.
Clean Install - use in a situation like an upgrade from previous version. The clean install will remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. This is akin to running a program like DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) so that there will be no driver conflicts with your new drivers. ...
What you have in sys are "files" that really point to kernel parameters used by various modules. So it's the loaded kernel modules which determine what you see under sys. It doesn't make sense to change it, because there wouldn't be a corresponding kernel module on the other end to process the changed files.
This is why "no one on the internet explains how ...
You could use xdpyinfo:
dimensions: 1366x768 pixels (361x203 millimeters)
resolution: 96x96 dots per inch
depths (7): 24, 1, 4, 8, 15, 16, 32
root window id: 0x2b9
depth of root window: 24 planes
number of colormaps: minimum 1, maximum 1
default colormap: 0x20
default number of colormap cells: 256
XenServer uses Cirrus video driver by default for all new VMs, which provides basic graphics and a maximum desktop resolution of 1024x768.
To get better resolution (up to 2560x1600) and color depth (32bpp), you need to change VM parameters to use Standard VGA driver instead of Cirrus video driver.
Shutdown your VM
From the command line, find the UUID of ...
Easiest way is to blacklist and unload it's kernel module. You can see its current module by first checking out the bus number with:
sudo lspci | egrep -i "(vga|video)"
note the first field with number like 01:00.0. Then display the module in use:
sudo lspci -vs 01:00 | grep modules
For HDMI-enabled devices there's usually a subdevice ...
I think I figured it out. I've never seen this before, so this is a good post to have on the web in case others see a similar scenario. I probably should have mentioned that I was running a hard wired USB mouse and a wireless keyboard. As it turns out, after trying a new video card and a couple other things, I ended up calling it quits.
I booted up my ...
This issue affects lots of AMD cards and drivers. The fix is as follows.
Go to the registry editor (start > regedit)
Change both of the following registries to 0
The registry path can vary slightly, but it will be one of the following or something similar. To find they key, I did a search through ...
This is a documentation from Microsoft website:
Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR)
In Windows Vista and later, the operating system attempts to detect
situations in which computers appear to be completely "frozen". The
operating system then attempts to dynamically recover from the frozen
situations so that desktops are responsive again. This ...
Well, you already have an answer at Unix SE. I’ll repeat the facts quickly:
This type of firmware is saved in volatile memory (no flashing involved)
It will typically not affect Windows at all
You cannot backup anything because it isn’t there in the first place
In case the firmware interferes with Windows drivers, simply shut down completely before ...
Does AMD have any similar open source drivers for Windows?
Open source AMD display drivers, that are compatible with Windows, does not exist. Intel, AMD, nor Nvidia provide open source drivers for Windows.
Since the only GPUs on the market are from Intel, AMD, or Nvidia open source display drivers from those manufacturers do not exist on Windows.
I used steffen's answer to get this working on Windows 10 and tracked it down in a bit more detail.
I had previously tried disabling TVEnableOverscan and DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan without success (changing them also in the amdkmdag key under CurrentControlSet\Services) as well as multiple versions and combinations of legacy CCC/driver installers. Prior to ...
I couldn't get it working with my Radeon HD 3600 on Windows 8.1 64bit with the proposed solutions from here. I tried everything including
All combinations of DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan and TVEnableOverscan to 0 or 1
DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan in 0000, 0001 or even in different registry paths
Setting DALR6 DFP1920x1080x0x59 or DALR6 DFP1920x1080x0x60 to 0 ...
It looks like you are missing the drivers for your video adapter.
Install the motherboard drivers, mainly the chipset and display adatper and you should see the name change to something other than Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
This motherboard has a built in VGA adapter. The link above ...
I had the same problem. I was using the Acer V226WL monitor with a Geforce GTX 1050 ti graphics card. My fix was to go into the NVIDIA control panel and when I created the resolution I wanted (in my case 1680 x 1050), I also had to change the timing to get the PC to accept the resolution. I changed the timing from automatic to CVT and success! Never had ...
Microsoft doesn't write drivers for specific products. They do have drivers for certain generic things, like display drivers to provide a basic level of support that is possible on any graphics card. They don't have time or interest to delve into some manufacturer's specifications (which are not even public) and make a proper performant driver for a specific ...
The best way to determine what drivers you need for ANY HP desktop system (such as yours) is to download a tool from HP called the SoftPaq Download Manager. Here is a link
After you install the app, it will need to download the softpaq database. After that is done, there is an option to search for ...
You should not worry about this at all, because the only thing you can influence is the location of accompanying utilities like catalyst control center or nVidia control panel. The actual driver files which are used to control the hardware are always put in Windows folder and they are loaded into memory when the pc runs so it does not matter where they are. ...
I created an account just because I was having the same issues and I figured out some things along the way that might help others.
So to start, I am running a CentOS 7 VM in VirtualBox 4.xx and the video driver is recognized with my guest additions working almost
completely (auto-resize is still broken but I can live with this for now).
Getting Video ...
I would like to install windows 10 graphics drivers on my windows 7. Since the manufacturers does not provide drivers for my 8th gen intel processor.
The drivers are not compatible with Windows 7. The Windows Driver Model version is different between Windows 7 and Windows 10.
The Intel drivers you speak of will not function on Windows 7. For the same ...
Had the same problem and my solution is:
use regedit to set keys:
DWORD: TVEnableOverscan = 0x0
DWORD: DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan = 0x0
rename "Underscan" to for example "oldUnderscan" to disable it
Only under rare circumstances will disabling secure boot cause issues, and those circumstances are those where malware tries to change your boot order. If the easiest solution to your problem is disabling secure boot, then that's the best option. Careful browsing habits and antivirus software in Windows combined with using Fedora as a primary or secondary OS ...
Go into the VM and into XP's Device Manager.
Changed video adapter to use the "Standard VGA" driver.
Set colour depth to 32-bit.
The Standard VGA driver will be slower (no hardware acceleration) but it lets you get to 32-bit color depths.
That's essentially all the scripting at the link you provided does.
It's possible on some GeForce cards. You have to program them to report as Quadros and you'll be able to install Quadro drivers. But it won't make the card exactly identical to Quadro. The latter ones usually have more memory and slightly different hardware design. Still, modding a GeForce will unlock some of its potential which is supported by hardware, but ...
Starting with Windows Vista and the WDDM driver model, the GPU drivers are splitted in a kernel and user mode part. So an issue in the user mode part doesn't crash the Windows any longer.
The feature you see is called Timeout Detection and Recovery of GPUs (TDR). Microsoft explained this here in an article.
The Video Scheduler component of the Windows ...
I've had my computer in the Windows Boot menu the whole day. I had lost all hope and was going to do the "Reset the PC" in the boot menu. Since I've got two drives I was unsure how to proceed, so I opened another thread here. I turned off my computer and was going to try and start it once more before reset. The Republic of Gamers logo ...
