Display Resloution

When I go to some forum the banner/header and navigation get messed up and someone suggested it could be a screen resolution problem and I was wondering what resolution should my resolution be set to? Currently it is set to 1024 X 768.

Hi cgrim29588.

It is possible for your monitor resolution to affect how a web site appears when you view it.

What monitor are you currently using? (Make,model,size)

Yes it is possible it is affecting web pages I view.

I don't know the size or model all I know is it is made by Compaq

Here is a picture of my monitor:

Thanks cgrim29588.

If you right click anywhere on your desktop you will be presented with a few options, one of which is "Screen resolution". This will give you the ability to adjust your resolution from "high" to "low" and a few settings in between.

Try the different settings until you find one which presents the pages you are trying to view in the best possible way.

Hope this helps.

I only can move it to 3 resolutions:

1280 X 1024 Highest
1024 X 768 Current Setting
800 X 600 Lowest
