MacBook :: Setting Wallpaper With Higher Resolution

Oct 21, 2009

I have an aluminum Macbook Unibody 13" that I just picked up off craigslist and was wondering if anyone new what I can expand the memory to. It has 2 GB Ram in it right now, and it is the 2.4 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 250 GB Hard Drive. Also I am trying to download apple wallpapers for it, but when I set it as my wallpaper it doesn't look as clear on my background as it does in the preview, even when I copy and set the one with higher resolution. I must be doing something wrong, if you don't mind could someone take me through the steps of how to properly download and apply wallpapers, as your background?

MacBook Pro :: Higher Resolution Screen Matters?

Feb 3, 2010

Given that the computer scales images to fit the resolution of the screen. Why does having a higher resolution screen matter? I mean I can play 1080p video on a 13 inch MBP and it still looks good. Why do people complain so much about how intolerable the low screen resolution is on the MBPs. Apple must have some kind of magic because images and video look great to me. Take a 13 inch MBP, would the same 1440x900 sized picture look that much better if the native resolution was 1440x900? If the quality loss is so noticeable how has Apple been able to get away with shipping the product?

MacBook Pro :: Grand Theft Auto San Andreas V 1.0.1 - Cannot Seem To Get The Resolution To Go Higher Than 800 X 600 X 32

Apr 25, 2012

I downloaded GTA San Andreas from the App Store. The game works fine. Only thing is I cannot seem to get the resolution to go higher than 800 x 600 x 32. Is there a reason for this? I am using a fairly new Macbook Pro with OS X Lion 10.7.3. with a 2.66Ghz Intel Core i7 processor. 8 GB ram. I am also using the higher resolution screen 1680 x 1050. However, when I go to the advanced game settings I cannot seem to make any changes to the resolution?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Getting Graphics In 10.7.3 Higher Resolution?

Feb 3, 2012

I just installed the 10.7.3? My "old" MacBook is a late 2008, 2.4Mhz, 8GbRAM. After instaling the new Lion, my 2nd monitor stopped working, so, before rushing after hardware problems, I connected it to my new MB (Pro 15" early 2011, 2.2Mhz, 16GbRAM) and it worked normally. So, back to the old one, I tried many drivers, etcs... after some time, I noted that the external monitor flicked many times with the "normal" image and turned black... I changed the 2nd monitor's resolution and it worked stable, so, now I can only use 1280X1024 instead of 1680X1050...

Windows On Mac :: Can't Get Higher Resolution Than 640 X 480 Running Xp Pro Via Bootcamp?

Apr 23, 2009

After booting to windows xp pro(sp2) via bootcamp the resolution setting slide bar on Nvidia control panel lets me adjust to a higher rez, but does not change the resolution physically at all. I do get the windows "keep this setting" pop up..I choose yes to humor it, but nothing changed in the first place.Other than this glitch, windows works fine. I can set the resolution to 1900 x 1200 for gaming inside the game's application but this huge 640 x 480 is hard to deal with on my 2.93GHz 17" unibody macbook pro display.

Hardware :: Push Higher Resolution With HDMI Over VGA?

Mar 27, 2010

I have a mid-2009 mbp. I have an old RCA Scenium L16WD14 TV I inherited.

My vga connection maxes out at 1024X768 on a 26in TV!! Would I get a higher resolution with an HDMI connection?

The VGA response rate is already a little slow. How will that affect movies and the like with HDMI in the event I can push a higher resolution.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Use Custom Resolution For Tv / Best Resolution For An LCD HDTV?

Aug 17, 2010

So i'm trying to figure out the best resolution for using my macbook pro in clamshell mode. I think ever since i installed snow leopard the new resolution choices i have are not longer pixel x pixel, but actual TV resolutions, such as 1080i, 720p, 420p. In the past I've used SwitchResX to do custom resolutions for my tv but that dosnt seem to work anymore.

I'm trying to find a resolution where text is easy to read. 1080i looks pretty but text is extremely small. 720p the text is larger and easy to see but is very fuzzy and not easy on the eyes. I guess this has something to do with the pixels on a tv being farther apart than that of a computer monitor. It's a 32" LCD TV. I'm using a DVI to HDMI cable (Non-Unibody Macbook Pro).

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Change External Monitor Resolution?

Apr 6, 2012

I use an external monitor from Dell with my Macbook Pro 13.3". For some reason I am not allowed to set this monitor at highest possible resolution? Or perhaps that's the best for this monitor which admittedly is quite old. But when I go into my system preferences it shows option for higher resolutions but doesn't allow me to select one.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Get Native 2560 Resolution On External Monitor

Jun 27, 2014

I have a Samsung SB970 S27B970D 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor with native resolution of 2560x1440. When I connect it to my 2012 13" MacBook Pro via mini display port to DVI, I am unable to get anything better than 1080p. 

Here's what System Information shows for my displays. Intel HD Graphics 4000:   Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 4000  Type: GPU  Bus: Built-In  VRAM (Total): 768 MB  Vendor: Intel (0x8086)  Device ID: 0x0166  Revision ID: 0x0009  Displays:Color LCD:  Display Type: LCD  Resolution: 2560 X 1600  Retina: Yes  Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)  Mirror: On  Mirror Status: Hardware Mirror  Online: Yes  Built-In: Yes  Connection Type: DisplayPortS27B970:  Resolution: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz  Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)  Display Serial Number: H3HCA00500    Main Display: Yes  Mirror: On  Mirror Status: Master Mirror  Online: Yes  Rotation: Supported  Television: Yes 

As you can see, 2560 should be supported. 

Also note that we have two different MBPs and two different Samsung monitors (same model, ordered at different times) that do the same thing.

Is anyone aware of an HDTV that supports the MacBook's native resolution? Currently I have a 32" Samsung which does not - first I have to change the resolution on the MacBook to something smaller and then hook up the TV, resulting in a distorted and blurred image. I'm looking to replace the Samsung with something larger, say 40"-55".

Who has actually played games on BOTH the 2010 high res and standard res macbook pros?Reading through that gaming benchmark thread isn't much of an indicator as most people don't post their resolution and if they have they have only played on one or the other.Im trying to get a better indicator on the performance difference with newer games. Are we talking 2-6 fps drop or 10-20 or more?

Software :: Unable To Change Resolution

Apr 30, 2008

I'm running OSX 10.4.11 on a G4. The problem began after I tried installing Adobe Flash Player - I wasn't sure which version of the software to install so I tried both the Mac Intel and Mac PowerPC versions. It still didn't seem to work (I was trying to watch the football online) so I tried rebooting the computer. When it restarted, the font size and colours on the screen had all changed, there were now visible horizintal lines across the screen too. The resolution had changed, but I had only one resolution option in System Preferences - Display: 1280 x 768. I've tried re-starting the computer a number of times but it's still the same. My computer says I'm still on the 10.4.11 operating system.

The only problem I have is that the screen wont display the the full width of a page when I am using Safari (1.3.1), I have to scroll from left to right to see everything, (screen set to 800X600). Other applications seem to be ok. I realise that it's all pretty old stuff but can it be fixed?

When I boot up the mac it automatically sets the correct resolution, but after about 5 minutes of use I start getting this color digital static and then after a few hits of this the TV goes blank. Sometimes I can get it back if I move the mouse or type on the keyboard, but it eventually goes away again.

OS X :: Unable To Restore Resolution To Original / Connecting To HDTV Via Vga Cable

Feb 15, 2010

When I plug my MacBook into my tv with a VGA cable, the resolution becomes significantly lower so that the windows will fit nicely on the TV screen. This is great. But when I unplug from the TV, and my resolution restores to normal, my window sizes are all messed up! For example, I normally have iTunes and iCal full-screen in dedicated spaces. Now they look like this (attached screenshots). Any way to have these windows automatically restore to their original size?
