Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

Question: Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I tried upping from recommended 250% to 350% for use of a genealogy program made that program larger but nothing else and if I use pinch to spread out and enlarge then screen impossible to work on because it just jumps from side to side I set everything back and restated and still the same display smaller than before. I have Nvided GEForce 960M video card and right now laptop is useless.

Preferred Solution: Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high. When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them. It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware. Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running? The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

hi folks, i am trying to decide between an edge e520 and an edge 15, i5, 15.6" screen. main use is for music production (cubase) but also some tv and movie watching. both the ones i am looking at have the anti-glare screen. - has anyone here got any experience of either model with music production? - is it exactly the same display on both models or is one better than the other (for movies etc)? i've read a few negative reports about the display quality.  thanks!

Windows 7 I am on a Gateway Intel 400 2 gb Ram 1 Tb harddrive using my large screen TV Mitsibuish as my monitor. Since installing Windows 7 my display has been edge to edge on my TV display. Recently after downloading a startup utility called starstartup my display changed with a two inch border on all sides. I have since deleted the startup utility but the border remain. I restored my computer to an earlier restore point nothing changed. So I think there must be another reason for this change in the display. On another hard drive with Windows XP which was also displaying edge to edge display but after I installed windows 8 beta the same thing occurred there was a border instead of the edge to edge display. I attempted to change the resolution which was on 1920 X 1080 to a lesser resolution but that didn't correct the display. So the resolution is back to 1920 X 1080. I clicked on full screen mode stay the same. Would like to get back to the edge to edge display. Hope you can help. Xandr

I set IE as my default. When I open anything with Edge the page is so tiny that I cant read it. Every page is a rectangle of about 2 inches wide and a little over 2 inches long. Has anyone run into the same problem or know how to correct it?

Answer:Small pages with Edge

You need to adjust your zoom setting.

To set it to default hold Ctrl and press the 0 (zero) key.

This may be just a problem for older folks like me but sometimes I think Microsoft shoots itself in the foot or they are just plain arrogant. It seems that they keep touting Edge as the browser of choice but then they make the font too small to read and there is no way to change it anymore.

I know I can magnify the size of the whole browser page but that really doesn't solve the problem and it seems to me that it is just plain common sense to be able to adjust and change the font on any application, especially a browser. Even right here where I am typing this in Windows 10 Forum there are a multitude of ways to change the font.

With all of the other problems Microsoft has with Windows 10 I would think that they don't need anymore, but I'm sure they don't care and I am sure that I will just stick with Firefox. I am even thinking of going back to Windows 7 where problems seem to be solvable.

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

I have the same exact set up on both machines (very darn close) and Ive always noticed that Edge consumes around 500mb-1GB of mem upon start up with my predesignated 5 tabs.
After the TH2 update on my desktop, I was blown away that Edge now only consumed 30-150mb, even with a twitch stream rolling in the background for extra measure. However, on the SP3 (after TH2) the memory usage is still the same
What gives?

Then you can adjust all of the battery settings in Power Manager, including ways to increase battery longetivity.
 
You can charge it overnight and set an upper limit and it will stop charging. (You can set it to stop charging at a certain percentage, for example, 80%)

I have an AOC 16" lcd monitor. On the edge of it I get these small black wavy lines. After about a week these wavy lines started increasing. The screen was also somewhat scrappy and flashed quite often. I checked the monitor cables and tried replacing them. Still it didn't go away. Then tried it on another computer, but the same thing happened. After that tried connecting a different lcd monitor of the same model to the system unit. The same result. Then I found out in one of these forum threads that it might be a graphics card problem. So tried fixing a graphics card to the AGP slot. But then no screen output came. So think something is wrong with the slot. Unfortunately, it's only the internal VGA which is working now.

After messing up with all these I tried replacing the PSU as the 3.3V was around 2.6V according to my system's BIOS. So it did seem to be a good fix for sometime till the CPU usage got high. The lines got back, but this time not much as before. No flashing either. The 3.3V now is around 3.2V. But now another problems has popped up. The BIOS keeps saying 'press F2 to reset defaults' at bootup. Is it something to do with the CMOS battery or the motherboard?

Given command for print in Edge is opening the Print Dialogue Box on full page (screenshot attached). Sometimes the the taskbar overlap the print button. Is there a way to open this box in small size.

Answer:How to make Microsoft Edge Print dialogue Box size small

I use Edge's "Send Feedback" feature several times a week to request that the print preview window open smaller. Often times, you have to "grab" the top of that window and hope there's enough room to pull it up far enough so that the "Print" button can be seen. You would expect that a company like Microsoft wouldn't make such rookie mistakes. Perhaps Win10/Edge was designed by a sub-contractor? That would explain A LOT.

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that display in your Lenovo ThinkPad E330 is not working properly unless you connect it to an external display.
 
Have you tried using your machine in safe mode? If that works, try rolling back your display drivers or reinstall it.
 
Go to Lenovo Support page to download the latest drivers, Please click on "Select Product", then in "QUICK PATH" enter E330 and select the exact model depending on the MTM number of your device.
 
Hope this helps!

Mithun.

Hello, I just bought an Edge 15 and I'm wondering if backlight bleed is a common problem with it. There are several places around the edge of the display where the backlight discolors the screen. I've attached a picture; note the top edge of the screen especially. Is this normal, or is it worth looking into a repair?  Also, I'm surprised that this model does not appear on Lenovo's website at all. I have only found one review for it, and it seems Best Buy was the only one to sell it. Anyone know about that? EDIT: Apparently my thread was moved to the ThinkPad Edge forum, though I'm pretty sure that this is not a ThinkPad Edge series device (as far as I can tell that series was discontinued and this was not ThinkPad branded). If someone could clarify that would be awesome. Thanks!

I'm afraid that it doesn't seem possible to have them share the same favorites source.

About all you can do is import them to keep them updated.

Using Internet Explorer 8, for some webpages, the left hand side can not be read. The slider on the bottom is as far to the left as possible. changing the text size does NOt help, Nor does changing the Zoom setting. Likewise, changing the page orientation from portrait to Landscape does not help.the margins are set as close to 0 as reasonable.

"change the command prompt screen layout" ( from Help & Support) showed the Screen size Buffer width=84, Ht=336, window size w=74, Ht=30; font 8x12, Raster fonts, buffer size 50, #=4.

Once I open a page on Edge, the page moving very fast across the screen as if I'm driving by an area at 100 mph. There is no way to read or click on anything because the page appears to be flying by.

I have an Edge 15 laptop out of warranty as of end of 2015. This morning my display acted up by showing a purple ghostly spreadsheet in the background which was last thing I was working on.  It appears to be  burned in. Laptop was not on for long at all though. I have Windows 10, tried display drivers change with no luck. In fact during boot up the purplish haze spreadsheet and discolorization still shows when it should be just black with the word Lenovo on it prior to starting Windows 10. Trying an external monitor plugged into HDMI worked fine.  I'm guessing it is a hardware display panel issue that I need to replace and not a video card or driver issue. Any ideas?  Are replacing display panels doable or does it need to be repaired professionally?  I have replaced a panel before on an older HP laptop before.  Not sure how easy the Edge 15 is to open though.  thanks Rob

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E40 no display

Hi Dre,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that there is no display in your Lenovo ThinkPad E40.
 
I would like to thank you for all the efforts you have done to fix the issue on your own.
 
Try removing the memory, start the system and check if you hear beep sounds. If there is no beep sound, probably it?s a system board issue.
 
Please let me know the happenings!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Hey all,  So I've had the Edge 14 for about a month now. I am really happy with it for the most part, but the display does this weird thing. Every once in a while, doesn't matter if it's on battery or on AC, the brightness is lowered (even though the brighness indicaor shows max brightness) and the colors wash out and start looking really weird. It sometimes solves this on it's own or it can be cured by lowereing and increasing brightness again. I can' figure out how or why this is happening. Has anybody else faced this? Is there a solution ? Thanks all !!

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 14 Display

check the dimming settings in power manager; had the same with an edge 13 and solved it by disabling dimming altogether

Laptop:Lenovo edge 15 80H bought on April 2015 from BestBuyFull HD with touch 15.6"Problem:Just after a couple of days of using the screen has turned pink and the edges of the screen have turned green.It first got fixed after changing the resolution to HD and back to full HD but it after an hour it turned pink again and hasn't been better ever since.It's been half a year now and i don't know what to do.I live far away from America and the warranty is only valid over there.Please help! I would really appreciate it

Answer:Edge 15 pink display

Hi akshaysingh000 ,
 
 
Welcome to the forums .
 
First objective is to isolate if it's a hardware issue or a software thing ( fixable via ex. settings change , update video driver or BIOS ) Click here for your user guide.
 
Checking on BIOS (page 9 Turn off and press Novo button ) or One key recovery environment (page 26) , if same pink colors (may be faintly seen) then it's a Hardware issue. (click on highlighted link for steps .
 
Connect to any external display , do you see any discolorations? If everything ok on the external monitors then the software is ok . Again most likely a hardware issue.
 
For Hardware repair:Check your warranty (US) , If you still have the Best Buy receipt , have it scanned if needed to be updated Check if an international warranty is available in your country .
Call tech support  for repair options. 
 
 
If however you have a relative or friend that soon would be visiting US before April , that would be the best option. Just authorize him on your behalf for the repair of the computer.  Otherwise to send the computer to someone in US would also work but I know that shipping would be a bit costly. 
 
Update us on how the display is both on BIOS and external screen . 
Hoping that this would help you decide on this issue. .
 
Regards,

Can anyone tell me what this fault code means and what I could or should do? Is this a serious problem? Actually I don't have any problems with the laptop. Although I'd like to mention that ThinkVantage System Update doesn't succeed. I get the message 'fault during gathering user information' (translated from Dutch language) and then it stops. In another thread on this forum I read about a Hard Disk quick test utility, but it is mentioned for Thinkpad Edge e420.  Lenovo Hard Drive Quick Test for Windows 7 (64-bit)http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkvantage_en/storage_quick_test_x64_101.exe Is this test laptop specific - for e420 and not for e530? Is it advisable to run this test or would this not work on my laptop? (My laptop runs Windows 7 64-bit) I would really appreciate your reply and / or assistance. Thanks a lot in advance! Monique

I've owned my Thinkpad Edge E440 for a couple of months now and have had no issues with it until this week. This week, my screen began flickering and going pure white when I turn it on.  By adjusting the screen back and forth, sometimes the white disappears and the flickering goes away. I suspect a short in the display ribbon, but I'm not completely sure what is going on here.  Any thoughts as to the cause of the whiteness and flickering? 

Answer:Edge E440 Display Flickering

Hi Krrg,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issues with Display flickering on your ThinkPad Edge E440.
 

Is the flickering occurs in BIOS mode?
Have you checked the system booting into safe mode?
Check with uninstalling the Graphic driver from the system and restart.

Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

I have a ThinkPad Edge E420s (4401-CTO). Recently, I started having odd display issues. On the built-in display/screen, all is see is a black or white screen, with two horizontal bands, one at the very top and one in the middle of the screen. If I attach to an external display using HDMI, no problem on the external display. Usually, I found that by reinstalling the display drivers, the problem would go away. However, the problem would reappear upon restarting or shutting down the computer, so I would just hibernate computer. If I had to restart for any reason, I would reattach the external display, reinstall the display drivers, directly from Intel, and the problem would be resolved. Now, reinstalling the drivers from Lenovo or Intel is not fixing the issue. Any ideas?I am running Windows 7 SP1, Home Premium. System is Intel Core i3-2310M, with Intel HD Graphics 3000.

I am curious what exactly controls display rotation when flexing/rotating the display on an Edge 15? Is this controlled by physical hardware, a switch somewhere or software?Or is this a driver of some sort? My display is not changing when I rotate the screen on Windows 8.1.... There is no mention of a switch to change as I know this is the case on some models,but was wondering if I am missing a driver or could be some other setting? Tell me how this works?

Answer:What Controls Display Rotation on Edge 15

I read the manual and the hardware maintenance guide and there is no physical switch for rotation.
 
This laptop has only 2 modes (as I can see) - Laptop and Stand. Neither of those modes use a rotated display so I am a bit confused exactly how are you expecting the laptop to rotate display.
Existence of just those 2 modes also makes me question if whether an orientation harware/drive is even included in this laptop?
 
Did someone tell you or have you ever seen Edge 15 rotate the display on changing modes/flipping display?
I saw a couple of youtube reviews and they do not show any such feature.

I have been happily running Media Centre on a media centre PC.

Recently, Media Centre has started to subtly stretch the image, cutting the right and left edge off the image.

At first I thought it was my television, but all the menu items are all within the display. it is only the DVD image itself that is stretching.

The problem has become quite annoying so I now play my DVDs through WMP or PowerDVD but I cannot use my Media Centre remote for those programs.

Any idea of a fix?

I cannot find any relevant display controls in settings.

Answer:Display cutting edge off image

Have just taken 2photos to confirm the issue. Don't know how to upload them to the Thad but it confirms Media Centre is displaying a very different picture to WMP. I went through the display setup again, changed nothing as it was all in order. Only affects DVD playback.

Very weird.

Hi, my supervisor attempted to hook his ThinkPad Edge laptop up to an external monitor via a VGA cable to utilize dual screens. I helped him extend the monitor space instead of simply mirroring the laptop monitor. Moments later, he disconnected the VGA cable from the laptop for some reason and was unable to get the external monitor recognized again. By the time I got back to the laptop, he noted that he had attempted to press various Fn button shortcuts, and now there is no display whatsoever except for the mouse icon.When loading, the Lenovo logo appears and the Windows startup sound plays afterwards, but there is no display. Only a black screen, and yet the mouse is visible and moving as it should. I attempted to connect the external monitor, but it does not seem to be recognizing this either. I booted the laptop in Safe Mode and it appeared fine, so I went into the Control Panel and confirmed that only the laptop monitor was recognized. Upon restarting, we were met with the same black screen.It should be noted that when moving the mouse around on the black screen display, the mouse hits the left edge of the laptop screen and recognizes it as a boundary, but will continue to go past the right edge of the monitor. This leads me to believe that it is still associating another display as the default, but I cannot seem to figure out how to reset the display so that the laptop monitor itself is the one and only source.

Hello - I just received my new Edge 14 one week ago.  This was my first Lenovo experience and I must say its going south fast.  The display continually powers off at random intervals.  Sometimes the slightest tilt of the screen will trigger this, sometimes it just does it for no apparent reason.  I continually have to power it down, reboot etc.  I'd love to keep the unit as I researched laptops HARD for months waiting in anticipation for a customizable Edge 14, but now I think its junk.  Tech support was completely unhelpful.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thx 
 
Moderator Note: Edited subject to match content.

Answer:Edge 14: Display Powers Off Randomly

Can you consistently reproduce this problem? You mention it will turn off when you adjust the LCD? Does it come back on if you tap a few keys?
 
If it comes back on when you tap a few keys, it is likely turning off to save power. You can adjust this setting in the ThinkPad Power manager by clicking on the green battery icon in your taskbar.
 
If it does NOT come back on without a reboot, you may have a hardware issue. It is possible it could be software related, so you could try to restore it with the recovery discs (which must be burned from the laptop, or support can send you some).
 
If a restore doesn't fix it, you'll need to send it in for repair.
 
Why wasn't Support helpful? They should be able to isolate this to a hardware or software issue fairly easily and proceed from there.

My Thinkpad was working fine last night, and I shut it down as normal with no problems. This morning I went to turn it on, the power light and fan came on etc but there is no display, not a backlit black screen or anything just completely dead. I tried different memory, hard drive in it and still nothing. I also tried plugging into another monitor to see if it was a problem with the screen but no luck.I have tried many times to turn it on, one of the times I turned it on and it loaded up as normal, then I shut it down and now it won't turn on again. The fan seems to be running extremely loudly when it turns on as well. Is there anything I can do to fix it? Thanks

Answer:Thinkpad Edge powers up but no display

Hi, joffyy
 
To me, it sounds like the machine is having severe difficulties in rendering video, which would explain why neither the LCD nor the external monitor are showing anything, except for that one time. If I had to make a guess, I would think that the video card or the systemboard is to blame, so one of those would need to be replaced. If your Edge machine only has an integrated graphics card, then it would be the systemboard, which is a good place to start. If possible, I would contact Lenovo at 08705-500-900 and discussing the issue with them.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

My Edge 15" arrived a few days ago, and within a day of using it, I noticed an issue with the display. Every so often it completely blacks out for 2 or 3 seconds, and then returns. I have phoned Lenovo regarding the issue, and they suggested I turn up my power settings and update drivers. I've done this but the problem persists. I think I should mention also that I have been using AC power since I received the laptop. In researching this screen issue, I've seen accounts of people who have experienced something similar when switching power sources. As far as I can tell, this is not the same thing. So has anyone else experienced this or can help in any way? I am worried it's a hardware issue that will worsen with time (my previous laptop had nightmarish screen flicker problems). Thanks.

I recently started experiencing a severe graphical glitch on the left of the laptops screen. It looks like a Big white rectangle with red on the bottom edge and green lines on the left and right sides.I believe it to be a screen hardware issues. Since when I tap on the back side lightly, it moves and causes the lines to flicker. My laptop I believe is still under warranty and I think Lenovo should fix it.What do you guys think? Also, my laptop also heats up really hot sometimes even under light to moderate use. Is that just part of a laptop growing old? Or might it just need to be opened up and dusted? Can you even do that with an Edge, and still put it back together?

Answer:Display Issue with my Thinkpad Edge 13 (I believe)

Sonic132,
 
Welcome to the forum - sounds like you have a few issues here...
 
1) Running warmer... Check power manager to be sure latest version is installed - sometimes things get corrupted.  You can also blow out the fan with the system off.   Ideally, fan and heatsinks are cleaned with the system opened up, but as you are under warranty, let's hold off on that.
 
2) Video issues.   Tell us a bit more if you can...
 
If you move the lid back and forth, does this change?  If so, it is likely an issue with the display cable.  The cable could be damaged / pinched, or it might not be making a good connection.
 
If you hook up an external display, does the same image result on the external display?  If no, then back to the LCD internal cable, or less likely, an issue with the LCD itself.   If on the other hand, the image defects exist on the external display same as the internal, then likely it is:
 
a) Corrupt video drivers - uninstall / reinstall the newest ones from the support site
b) memory - power down the system and open the memory compartment - remove and reseat the memory module(s)
c) Run diagnostics (Thinkvantage Toolbox) and run the video tests.  If it fails, definitely call support.
 
If you have been through all of the above and are still stuck, give support a call since you are under warranty.
 
Best regards,
 
Mark

The tests were the - Targeted read test- SMART short self test- SMART drive self test. with a result code of WHD01V01I-UL7A6K. My OS is windows 10 64-bit. What do these failed tests mean? Is there a way to fix them?

Hi,I have an edge 15 first gen (with i7 4510u) and my digitizer broke. I bought a new one and only then found out the hard way I can't seperate the digitizer and the LCD - and broke both.Thinking about how worn my machine is (touchpad is flimsy and the metel is bent everywhere), I was thinking of buying the cheapest new i3 (I think it's edge 2, model is 80k9) off ebay, then swapping my old mainboard in place of the new i3 mainboard. Then I may get an almost new laptop.Do you think it will work, will the older mainboard fit in the newer machine?Thanks.

I am looking for a high quality edge to edge printer for lowish volume A4 and letter format paper.To be used professionally for brochurs and flyers. Quality is more important than speed.Anybody got any direct experience and recommendations - I noticed this question doesn't google too well.

Answer:Edge to Edge printer recommendations

If by "edge to edge" you mean borderless printing then there are many Epson printers available. I have an Epson 895 Borderless (very old now and not available anymore) and an Epson R200, both of which do borderless printing. But the Epson r200, r300, C66 and C86 are all borderless.Try here and check out specifications and prices.click here

Me again! At this point (after 2 lost days of work!) We don't have anything special saved on there, it's all in the cloud (scary), so a reset would be awesome. My partner tried the a USB boot (since the battery is integrated and we can't remove and there are no cd/dvd drives, we made a usb flash drive). No success. Also: It's been 'upgraded' to windows 10.

When starting up the PC the display is a 2" x 2" square and I cannot read anything. Also is the same way in safe mode. Everything was fine yesterday when I shut down. I seem to remember this problem on another PC in the past and it was related to a registry change. I would try system restore but everything is too small, the icons are only dots. Any ideas to try?

Hi, I am an oap with little pc knowledge. My friend has kindly downloaded some small video clips from my phone onto a SanDisk Cruzer Edge 32GB memory stick. He put a note with it to open with quicktime player. When I load the stick it goes straight to windows options for opening which of course gets me nowhere.

I have a Y70-70 that I bought last Christmas.  I have upgraded to windows 10 and when I use Edge or Chrome as a bowers, the favorites and the address bars fade away to either the light or dark setting that is used. I have to get completely out and sometimes restart my computer and go on line to see these areas.  I have checked for updated drivers for the video card and have played with the setting on both browers but can't get this resolved. Has anyone had this same problem and has found a fix for this issue?

Find out whether you can return it. If you can, return it and get a notebook with an anti-glare/mat display. Lenovo offers numerous models with anti-glare/mat displays.

Hello, I got 2 problems with my ThinkPad Yoga 370... First is about the Trackpad. I can't really explain what happens, but when I press the left or right hardware button nothing happens until I press it again or until I move the cursor using the touchpad. Also while scrolling, it first stops and then continues scrolling, not fluent at all, and thats not caused by lags or something, scrolling with a external mouse works fine.Very strange is that sometimes the problems are there, sometimes they ain't. They normally go back after 1 or 2 reboots, but thats not what it should be like. I already tried by reinstalling the drivers, didnt help. Second problem is the Display. It has a glowing edge around the whole display, I have no idea where this comes from... I reinstalled the Display driver, but that did not help. Thanks in advance  Basti

I just got the ThinkCenter all-in-one (AIO) Edge 91z.  I got it specifically for the VGA display input port to use with my legacy computer, so I can toss the old CRT monitor.  There is a button on the front that toggles to the VGA screen and back to the AIO screen.  The VGA screen must use the same Intel HD graphics driver as the AIO computer (there is no other driver listed), it just uses the input from the VGA port.  I have complete control over the AIO screen through the Intel Graphics and Media Control Center.  (It is set to a 4:3 display as I write this.)  But I cannot figure out how to change the aspect ratio of the VGA display to 4:3, from the native 16:9.  I cannot find a way to transfer the AIO settings to the VGA screen, or to create separate VGA settings to match the output from my legacy computer for a CRT monitor.  (The hotkey <ctl><alt>F12 works only for the AIO screen.)  The VGA screen is sharp and the colors are good, but the display is seriously distorted.  An AutoCAD drawing of a circle looks like an ellipse.  I have to correct the VGA aspect ratio, or this computer is of little use to me.  Any ideas how to accomplish this?  -Regards, Joe  (PS - I did not find an Edge message board for this post.)

Yesterday mid-day my Edge browser screen-font-size suddenly went from "normal" to miniscule (see attached image).
At the time I was reading info on a sports web-site. Just prior to that my touch-pad (ASUS laptop) suddenly reverted
to having the touch-pad feature "TAP" as ON, and because I have a small shake in my hand, this feature most-often causes problems.

When I converted from Win 8.1 to Win10 a few weeks ago I immediately searched for and found the option
(under ASUS Smart Gesture app) and turned all TAP features off. It worked fine until yesterday. I searched
for possible solutions and discovered I could not access ASUS Smart Gesture, so I re-installed it- that feature
is now turned off again, but I cannot get Edge to display in normal font-size. That's the only place it occurs

I have reverted to Internet Explorer v11 for now, but would appreciate if someone knows of a fix or could suggest
where to look to give me some ideas.

Thanks

Answer:Miniscule display size in MS Edge Browser

Press [Ctrl] +[0]

That's Control and Zero.


It's likely you may have accidentally performed a "pinch-zoom" on the touchpad. Check if you can disable this feature if the touchpad settings.

I own a ThinkPad Edge E520 (1143ADU) with a scratched display. I would like to replace it, but am also looking for options. I could order the same part from Lenovo, but I find the screen (15.6", WXGA HD) that came with the computer less than satisfactory at reproducing colours (photo editing). Are there quality third-party options, or can I use a better display from another ThinkPad (I can't find any compatibility info)? I am looking at improving sharpness and colour replication first, and not necessarily at increasing pixel resolution.

Hi - I am experiencing a few difficulties with the display of my ThinkPad Edge 11 (ID: 03282NB). One of them is that sometimes (I don't know what triggers that) the display becomes progressively very "white" (I don't know how to describe that better), and then returns to normal after maybe 10 seconds. The occurrence seems random to me, and it is very annoying since the screen becomes unreadable (extremely bright / white). I don't know if this is related to power management or something else. I have upgraded to the latest drivers / software through Lenovo and Microsoft. Thank you very much in advance for your help. - Julien  

Answer:ThinkPad Edge 11 Display Becoming Very "White" For A Few Seconds

Yes it happens to my X201 and my T510 too. It is totally random. The screen becomes darker and all fonts/windows/pictures becomes very weird. It will return to normal after 10-20 seconds. Very annoying.

After using the laptop for 1-45 mins the display and audio will stop working without warning. Both plugged in and on battery. I can tell the display is still on because when I press the F9 key, it will get slightly darker. The only thing that I can do is change the keyboard backlight. Number lock and caps lock lights don't respond. It won't go to sleep when this happens. The only fix is a hard reboot, which is very annoying to do every 5 mins or so. Please help.

Why can't I get Edge to display pages right on my 950. It's not every site but about 75% of the time text and pics seem to overlap and it's pretty much illegible. Doesn't make a difference if I use mobile or full site under settings.

I have four browsers on my desktop running Windows 10; the favicon for UBC Botanical Garden Forums displays in Firefox, Chrome and MSIE. It does not display in Edge. That site gives me notifications on the favicon, so I want it to display. I have just installed Win 10/Edge on my laptop, and the favicon displays in Edge on that machine.

I have cleared browser history and cache at least 50 times, mostly several months ago, and then now when I have returned home to use my desktop. I have followed the instructions here How to Reinstall Microsoft Edge Browser - All things technical - tips tricks on reinstalling the browser, though I think it just hid it and made it reappear.

I noted this advice on a forum software forum:





if you want to make it show up faster for yourself, visit http://yourforumroot.com/favicon.ico (eg visit the file itself) and hit ctrl f5 a couple of times. Tends to do the trick​



I don't understand what this means. In Edge, when I type http://forums.botancalgarden.ca/favicon.ico into the url line, it downloads the image (to my downloads folder). There is no refreshing the path to the image where it will be accessed by the page.

I have searched my desktop for favicon.ico, but I have apparently nothing saved in a location that could be related to this site.

I believe the problem started when the site did not have a favicon. I was apparently the only user using the Edge browser during that time, as I seem to ... Read more

Answer:Favicon for one site will not display only in Edge only on my computer

Hello

I wonder if your desktop has simply not updated to the latest version of Windows 10 and Edge? You can check by typing winver in the search box. Here is mine:

If you are still on a previous ver like 1024 then an update might sort out the problem.
