I have an HP dv4000 and the display is stuck at 1024x768 and will not fill the entire screen. It does in Windows, In the BIOS in ANYTHING.


This drive was wiped prior to this (problem still occurring before the wipe). And the lastest and greats video driver was installed. I knew it almost certainly was not the driver because it does in the bios too.....

any idears?

You say "stuck". Did you try to change the properties?

Yes of course. Nothing changed.

I also flashed the bios to the newest version too... nothing...

There are a zillion models of the HP dv4000 notebook. Which one do you have?

Where did you get the latest driver from? Perhaps using an older version would fix this, sometimes it does.

Let me stress that it also does it in the bios. If it were a driver then my bios would load normally. Im thinking hardware at this point....

Sorry, yes, you did say that and I ignored it. :)

Does your laptop have a Presentation Mode? It's normally used when you connect a projector up so you can view your screen on a larger area. If it's in PM mode then it will force the resolution to what ever it's default is.

Do you have another display you can hook to the external video connector? Would be interesting to see if it's okay there or not.
