HP Compac 6720s notebook screen resolution

There are two options for native screen display under Display Properties >> Settings (XP SP2):

1. Plug and Play monitor, max. 1280x800 px

2. Default monitor, max. 1920x1080 px

However, when selecting 2, and increasing resolution beyond that possible by 1, nothing happens when you click Apply. There is no docking station and I'm intersted in the built in laptop monitor.

Thanks if anyone knows of this issue.

Reinstall the graphics card driver for that model laptop- restart and then try changing the resolution again.  This should fix your problem.  Let us know, ok?

Hello

It turns out right that his is the maximum resolution supported by this notebook's screen (not the graphics module).
However, the unproportional font  problem was corrected by adjusting the Display properties >> Settings >> Advanced >> General >> DPI setting to 100% (96 dpi).In this way the font appearance resumed its 1280x1024 proportions and looks.

Thought would add this. thanks for trying to help.

One should always check the supported resolution a monitor can handle before adjusting it .
