H satellite L505-13 - problem with the resolution of games

Hello, I have a problem with the resolution of games, I just that:
800 x 600 and 1024 x 768
Yet, I have the latest version of the ati driver and directx 11...

Windows Dectet my monitor properly (plug-and-play), and my screen resolution works well for: 1366 x 768 and 800 x 600.
on the other hand, when I start a game I have only the choice between these two resolution: 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768...

All the games don t fit the full screen and there is always a black area on the right and left.

Some games (crash)... and I thought it made a link with said that I have only 2 resolution.

I have a toshiba L505 - h - 13 (PSLS9E)
my graphics card: ati mobility radeon hd 5145 graphics card
OS: win 7 32 bit

I hope someone can help me find a solution
Thanks in advance


I put t know what games you want to play, but generally speaking, it of also depending on the game you can use screen resolutions. For example if your game supports only 2 screen resolutions, you can only use these resolutions.

So all you can do is update the driver DirectX and display. Then, look for an update (patch) for the game.

Good luck! :)

  • Satellite Pro C650D - problems with the audio and game controllers


    I recently had problems with my microphone and speakers/headphones and game controllers.
    Sometimes the microphone stops working when on Skype, for example, but most of the time works fine, once again, when I restart the pc.

    Stakeholders sometimes still work when I connect headset.
    Some of the sounds are still coming through the speakers while some coming through the headphones.

    I have a usb game controller which also did not work everything properly.
    If I assign buttons in the program that they do not work in the game.

    All these devices are in Device Manager in a group that makes me think it's sort of annoying update doubtful that messes with them.

    Any body have similar problems or know what to do better?

    See you soon


    Can you please send some details on the laptop model and the system you are using?

    With regard to the issue of sound/mic:
    > The microphone sometimes stops working when on Skype, for example, but most of the time works fine, once again, when I restart the pc.

    Are you talking about internal microphone or external? This only happens using Skype?
    In your case I would test the microphone using different applications to make sure that is not a Skype related issue.

    > Yet sometimes the speakers work when I connect headset.
    I recommend this thread:

    The user has had a similar problem, but this phenomenon was linked to the Realtek HD Audio Manager settings.
    She wrote:
    + In the upper right corner, there is a small yellow folder called "Connector settings" in my version. +
    + There, finally I could re-enable the setting "enable popup dialog box, when the unit is plugged. +

    + So now when I plug an external speaker or headphones, it appears, and I select the option "helmet" (instead of "line-in"), and then the sound only through the headphones/ext.speaker.+

    Regarding the game controller:
    > I have a usb game controller which also did not work everything properly.
    > If I attribute buttons in the program, they do not work in the game.
    I put t think its problem of laptop in my opinion, you must make sure that the controller is compatible with the games you play and also recommended to check some info provided by the manufacturer of the game controller.

  • Satellite C40D-C - problems with the system

    I recently bought an a toshiba satellite C40D-C Series notebook PC as my old satellite - essentially - is dying. After you connect to the internet, I tried to download AVG Antivirus on my computer that I don't have - and never - trust McAfee anti-virus that comes with the computer. Every time downloaded AVG then restart my computer, the computer goes directly into the automatic repair system and doesn't let me do anything but to reset or restore. This has happened even with completely removed McAfee. I've been on AVG directly today (January 15), and they have to do remote set-up for me - with the same results. Yes, I'm aware that McAfee is a selfish cry of a system and refuses to acknowledge any other antivirus, but that this issue happens even with completely removed McAfee shows clearly that it is something that Toshiba has worked in the system. I can't even disable the automatic repair tool. I have to be stuck with a McAfee antivirus which, moreover, does not yet or is Toshiba will make an effort to help solve a problem they caused?

    Why this computer isn't allowing AVG Antivirus work? And why, after each attempt to download AVG, the computer goes to auto repair whenever I shut down or restart? Is this a problem with the system or something, Toshiba has done on purpose?

  • Satellite U500-17F: problems with the new HARD drive

    Hi everyone, I got some troubleshooting with my Satellite and a new drive, I bought recently, because that is already damaged because of too many bad sectors. One is a Western Digital Scorpio Black 320 Bg (WD3200BEKT model number). It should be a fast reader but is not with my Satellite.

    After having mounted the drive in the laptop, I ran a new installation (with full disk format} Windows 7 (64 bit) with all the necessary drivers (that I downloaded directly from the Page of Support Toshiba.)

    The problem is that the laptop needs a lot of time to start and also to disable, and whenever I try to run an application or start a program (for example Firefox, or just a few windows applications), the laptop freezes for about 30 to 60 seconds, the drive no longer works (you can hear leaders put in position 'parking' and the HDD LED control is constant) ", no lights flashing).

    It seems that the drive (during this 30-60 seconds) in something as a stand-by mode. I ran a few Western Digital diagnostic tools and the car looks all right to 100%. It works also without any problems in the other laptop (HP Pavilion DV6500). Could this be a problem with the controller (Intel ICH9M - E ATA AHCI controller) driver?

    Any suggestion?


    You use the latest version of the BIOS?
    Please check if you need a BIOS update. Of course I read in a few discussions on the similar question of Win XP you use Win 7 but its value to check the update of the BIOS and U500 series.

    In addition, I recommend check you the power of Windows 7 options.
    Disable in the power profile that you use power saving HDD.

    Just a question:
    You use the option AHCI in the BIOS?
    As far as I know it of possible to use either a compatible SATA AHCI mode.
    AHCI must be used because this option would use full SATA performance.

    Hey everybody,

    I work on a Satellite Toshiba C850, that my parents recently bought and spin in a certain number of questions.

    (1) wireless won't connect to my network. Have done the following: verified by connecting on two other computers, reset the router, the open network, reset the map, reinstalled the realtek drivers, checked the settings in the networking of Toshiba Utilities. End result is he's going to try, and fail. Wired LAN works fine.

    (2) FN key does not work. Have you checked the region and it is OK, have tried to use the Flash cards - no change, checked with the screen keyboard and can check the FN key does not register.

    I noticed that the first problem is common, but there are obvious positive results. If anyone can offer any assistance, I would appreciate it a lot.

    Before you begin to discuss your problems can you please tell us what OS you are using?
    Are you using the original OS that you got with your laptop? I mean original recovery image has been tested and works correctly, with the factory settings that all should especially the FN keys.

    2 / if there is problem with the feature keys FN and you use Win7 try please reinstall extra package from Toshiba.

  • Satellite C660D - a problem with the cooling system has been detected

    My laptop is a * Toshiba Satellite C660D-11th * and I have a message that keeps coming up every once in a while 'alert system' head and reads as follows: "WARNING: a problem with the cooling system has been detected." (Next line) Please, turn off computer immediately and return it for service. »

    I had this warning for the coming weeks and it tolerated, but it worsened and annoyed me for the last time. I can hear the fan and the computer is not over heating (the CPUCool freeware tool detects a 51º CPU temprature C). No further questions arise as the computer slows down, it is right in the path of what I do, like typing right now.

    I tried to solve the problem by changing the "Power Options" in the control panel of Windows 7 'High Performance', and then selected under the 'battery' both 'Sector' columns, 'Never' for the parameter "put the computer to sleep. It seems to work, and no error message has occurred since then. However, this is not a solution...

    Please help quickly, this prevents me from working and even other things now.

    Thank you


    Usually, this message would appear if something is not wrong with the cooling system. But I read here in the forum that maybe it's a bug of software and after new system recovery this message should no longer appear.

    But if you notice some upper temperature or abnormal noises, then I recommend to check this with a service technician

  • Upgrading to Windows 7 HP Pavilion dv6500 and have a problem with the resolution

    OK, here's my problem. I had Windows Vista, has been sick with it. I'm not used to ask someone if I can or can not install some software or OS, so I have two formatted partitions (recovery hp too) and installed windows 7 now, I discovered that he had a lot of problems with the drivers. I have successfully resolved all of them, even my hp legacy works and everything else, except the driver Nvidia. My screen resolution is 1024 x 768 and should be 1280 x 800.

    PS sory for my English.

    Dan or one of the others may be able to help if you post exactly what indicates the error.

    As you say you are not a noob so maybe you need to change something in the NVIDIA Control Panel. Maybe go to the advanced option when you're at NVIDIA.

    Personally when I clean installs I delete, and format the entire disk before installing W7. Doing it this way usually prevents this kind of error occurs. When you use the W7 install disk to format, it may not remove all of the old files registry Vista and can cause problems.

    If you start from scratch once again, this may solve your problem, but there is no guarantee.

    It took 4 tries on my HDX from Vista to W7 to do things.

    I just took a glance at my NVIDIA advanced and under Show options there is an option to "manage custom resolutions. Here I could input what I wanted. What's your has that?

  • Satellite U400 - 10L: problem with the start-up & reboot


    Well I don't like much about the touchpad overheating but I have a problem. When I restart this mobo instead of activate after a reboot it stays black without any reaction only lower diods, dvd - rom and the display flashes (can't hear fan or hard drive).

    If I press the power button / stop all the icons of diod (ac, pwr, hdd bat) shine up just for a second and new (can't hear the fan hard drive or cpu) computer does not turn on. All this happened only when AC cable is connected to the power if I use just notebook power source battery boots and restart without problems.

    If I remove battery completely from the laptop, once more, I get the same symptoms (cannot start). And the saddest part of this story is the fact that I got brand new Toshiba U400 10 L to the seller and got a new.
    It has the exact same problem.
    As you all probably understand im crazy because in the last two days, I tried really everything, including the BIOS without flashing and the success.

    Well im not sure whats going on, but this could be the problem with the battery or a bad contact?
    Any ideas?
    I would return it back?

    Thanks much for the reply


    The behavior of your laptop is really strange and I suppose it might be bound only to a hardware problem.

    A friend of mine couldn't t start the laptop connected to the AC adapter the power adapter is faulty. It was only possible to start Notepad using the battery, and only if the battery was not completely empty.

    I put t know if your AC adapter failures but the authorized service provider should definitely check out the laptop and accessory for laptop (AC adapter).

    Then call the ASP in your country and ask the technicians for later handling.


  • Satellite A660 - 07P problem with the pointer of the mouse using the touchpad

    I just bought my A660 07P last Thursday, September 15, 10 and I noticed that I had problems with the mouse pointer using the touchpad.

    From time to time, the cursor/pointer is locked and seems something like a button up and down.
    I assume it's because it's on a mode of waiting, but in this case as every 5 minutes.
    When it is locked, it will also change the zoom percentage when the touchpad is struck. It is very not when I'm in the middle of something and I can not move the pointer. In addition, the start is very slow.

    BTW, I have not installed any programs or applications. I'm still testing until Friday, otherwise I'll go back to where I bought it.

    Hi mate

    This isn't touchpad problem.
    I guess as support for computer laptop MULTI-TOUCH PAD
    There are a few additional features supported by touchpad, and I think that you have enabled this while using the touchpad

    The touchpad supports the features:
    You can scroll vertically and horizontally

    _Pinch Zoom_
    This feature provides functionality like the scroll wheel zooming

    _Rotating (chiral spin) _
    This provides gestures to rotate the photos and other objects

    This feature provides a smooth, fast trackball as the movement of the mouse. A quick finger on the touchpad surface can move the sliders in the entire screen.

  • Satellite P100-347 - problem with the judgment during the game

    I have a problem with my (pspa6e) Satellite P100-347

    After about 10 minutes of play time with games like battlefield 2, the SIMS2 and so on... my pc stops...
    I knew it was close because of high gpu or cpu temp...

    I felt that my laptop was warm, but after playing for a while its normal...

    So I installed HWmonitor to check my gpu, CPU and disk hard temp...

    That's what I show:

    THRM: 61.C - 141.F

    CPU: core0\1 - two 64.C - 147.F

    GPU: turn 85 stable - 90.C
    This normal use... no games...

    HARD DRIVE: 39.C

    Something must be wrong! GPU temp is too high?
    I tried a fresh install of the OS...

    Thnx for all the help and answers!

    Hmm these times can be a little high.

    Most likely there is dust in the radiator. You can use compressed air to remove it. Or as a miracle solution, blow into the vents dust closes in contrast to air circulation.
