How To Use The Troubleshoot Video Display Problems In Windows 7, Vista And XP

Video Display Troubleshooter utility in Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 help you with fixing problems with the computer’s monitor. Such problems are common and the inbuilt troubleshooter is always handy to deal with them.

For Vista and Windows 7, you will find the utility in the Properties box for your display adapter. To run it, go to the Properties dialog box, and then open the Troubleshoot section. Here, click on the Change Settings button, and then follow the steps mentioned on the screen. Sometimes the Change Settings button cannot be clicked though, and you will not be able to troubleshoot from the Properties dialog box. In such an event, get in touch with an expert.

Another way to get around the issue is to go to the Start menu and access the Control Panel utility. Click on the search box, type troubleshooter, and hit on the Enter key. Select Troubleshooting on the search results page. Click on the View all option present on the left, and then select Display Quality. If you are asked for password or confirmation, provide it.

In XP, display troubleshooting requires a few more steps to get underway. Follow these instructions if you are using Windows XP.

Steps to follow
  • Go to the desktop screen, right-click on an empty space, and choose Properties from the context menu that appears.
  • When you are in the Display Properties dialog box, go to the Settings section on the top. Click on the Troubleshoot button there. You will see the Video Display Troubleshooter pop up.
  • You will be asked questions here. Follow the instructions to fix your problem. When you are finished with that, close the dialog boxes that are still open, and reboot the computer.
With the troubleshooting steps mentioned above, you can deal with many display problems in your Windows XP computer. Some of these problems include flickering or jumbled display, problems with installing the monitor, issues with videos and animations, or the cap for your resolution setting is 640 X 480 with 16 colors, and it cannot be raised.

Make sure that you follow the respective instructions to fix your display issues. If it is a virus problem, which is playing havoc with your video drivers, do a clean reinstall of the OS and install the driver all over again. Call our Windows 7 help team for help with that.
