sony viao monitor resolution problem



hey, sorry to bug everyine but i just got a viao pcg-fx39op yesterday and everytime i change the resolution lower than 1028x768 th screen isnt stretched to fit the monitor, the video adapter is an intel 82815, thanks for your time


hey your not bugging anyone - thats what these forums are for :)

The reason why this is happening is you have to manually adjust the monitor settings to "Stretch" it.

There should be some buttons on the monitor ?

Just look in the actual monitor Handbook it will show you how.

If this is a laptop, 1028x768 is the highest it'll go. I have a pcg-fxa36 and i got bummed when it couldn't go any higher...anyway, you'll be more bummed when u realize the vid card (integraded BAH!) doesn't support direct3d or this a laptop?


yes it is a laptop, but i can run max payne and castle woldensten with max graphics at 640x480 with ease, but if i put it on low and run it a 1028x768 then it runs so slow, but its the only way i can run it full screen, my bos gave this to me so i will get teh manual tommorow


You rmost likely out of luck i have the same problem with my Thinkpad t20. It has to do with the scaling technology of the LCD monitors. They do not stretch out correctly so instead of having a stretched out ugly screen most companies disable stretching it out. My thinkpad will be full screen at 1024x768 but at 800x600 and 640x480 it will just make a smaller and smaller box. Some laptops have the option to stretch because of the vid card they use....mine uses an ATI card that unluckily does not support this function as i am afraid yours might not either. If im wrong correct me..i hope for your sake i am =(

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
