Monitor settings

  1. I have been using 800x600 setting on my monitor becuase it is easier for me to read (being bigger and all ). When I change the settings to like 1024x768 (because is supposed to be higher resolution?) I have black bars on the sides of the screen that I cant get rid of with the setting buttons on the bottom of the monitor. Is this normal? And can someone explain in general the benefits of the different settings. Thanks.

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

    When switching from 800x600 to higher res 1024x768
    I think you need to re-apply your background image, reset the stretch.
    More info on one screen...You can adjust the font size in higher res's
    to make it easier to read.
    I'm running 1280x1024 32bit color and 60 hz on the monitor.

    What OS?
