Hey. My name's Zach. If you're trying to go to a big screen resolution it's all dependent on your graphics card. Now you need to actually check and know what graphics card you have. If you only have a 1 gigahertz graphics card it's really not going to be that great of a display and sometimes it's not going to come out as clear as you would like it to. So over here what we're going to do first is right click and go to screen resolution. In screen resolution you can click here in the resolution to see what your highest resolution you can go. This also depends on how big your screen is. For example I have a 13.1 inch screen. But if I had a 17 inch screen there'd be a much bigger option for me. Also in displays here you can hook up an external monitor. You could hook up like a 32 inch TV via HDMI or VGA and that would actually display across in a bigger resolution. Now to check what graphics card you have we're going to first go to the Explorer window and just go to my computer. And we can go to system properties. And you're going to click performance information and tools. This process is, this shows all your graphics. So we have desktop graphic performance of 4.8. Gaming graphics is actually a 3D business card and that's a 6.1. So if you check this information you might be able to swap out your graphics card in order to get the bigger resolution. But alternately I would just suggest putting it up into a bigger 32 inch HD TV screen. My name's Zach and I hope this helps. Thanks for watching.
