I have a HP DECalpha server, runing OpenVMS V7.2.
The default resolution and refresh rate are too high. No monitor in my home can display anything when it goes into windows interface. Anyone can give a hand how to change it. By the way, I still can remote access the server wih Compaq PathWork.

    There are a number of articles on HP's "OpenVMS ask the wizard" site that speak to this issue. They most common refrain is: it depends on the card - different cards afforded different ways to set the display characteristics.

    That means your first task will be identifying which display adapter you have, then find the appropriate wizard or FAQ section that tells you what to do. Examples:

    PBXGB: PowerStorm 3D30, 4D20 resolution settings

    ELSA GLoria Synergy Graphics Configuration?
