  Computer display standard
Various computer display standards or display modes have been used in the history of the personal computer.
They are often a combination of resolution (specified as the width and height in pixels), colour depth measured in bits, and refresh rate expressed in hertz.
A de facto standard with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 with 32 bit pixels, true colour.

 Pixel - Computer vision - a Wikia wiki   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The modern computer display is designed with a native resolution which refers to the perfect match between pixels and triads.
When an image file is displayed on a screen, the number of bits per pixel is expressed separately for the raster file and for the display.
A recent technique for increasing the apparent resolution of a colour display, named subpixel rendering, uses knowledge of pixel geometry to manipulate the three coloured sub-pixels separately, which seems to be most effective with LCD displays set at native resolution.

 the Computer Tutor: Glossary of Computer Terms
In bitmap graphics, an image is displayed on the screen as a collection of tiny squares called pixels, which together form a pattern.
The program displays certain icons, buttons, dialogue boxes, etc. in its windows on the screen and the user controls it mainly by moving a pointer on the screen (typically controlled by a mouse) and selecting certain objects by pressing buttons on the mouse while the pointer is pointing at them.
There are two main sources of interrupts: a signal from outside the computer, such as someone touching the keyboard or mouse (a hardware interrupt); or a machine instruction such as a request for input or output (a software interrupt).

 ExactChoice - Advice - Computer Displays
The computer industry has a set of display standards that represent a progression of resolutions from relatively low to high.
However, if you are considering a flat-panel display, you'll want to understand the distinction between plain resolution, which is what the computer outputs, and native resolution (below), which is a property of the flat-panel display.
A flat-panel display is a thin and light-weight display, originally developed for use on notebook computers but now increasingly adopted as a replacement for desktop computers' traditional CRT displays.

 Display and retrieval of data.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Even computer displays with high-resolution graphic monitors often sacrifice much of the available display area to a plethora of semi-permanent "buttons" and other interface elements designed to receive information from users rather than convey information to them.
It is not clear that the display techniques suitable for desktop computers or current-generation patient data management systems are appropriate for high-bandwidth display of clinical information.
In the absence of new developments, the displays at the patient’s bedside, the nursing station, and the physician’s desktop are potentially "choke points" through which most of the benefits of a fully computerized patient record may fit only awkwardly.

 VESA DisplayPort Digital Display Interface Standard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
External display connections include the interface between a source device such as a desktop PC, set-top box, DVD player or game console, and a display device such as a direct view flat panel or projection display for viewing video and graphics.
The DisplayPort standard is designed to be usable in all digital source display connections, whether these connections are embedded within a device, such as a notebook PC, or via an external cable between a source device and a display device.
The display connectors used today by the computer industry are relatively large, leading to a conflict with the trend towards small, slim form factors.

 Black borders on side of screen.
If you're using a widescreen LCD display and you're running a non-widescreen resolution or the program, game, or movie you watching does not support widescreen it is normal for the display to have large fl borders on the left and right-hand sides of the image.
LCD displays are designed and work differently from the standard CRT monitor found on most computers.
To rectify this issue, most LCD displays or laptop manufacturers will have a stretch utility to stretch the pixel size allowing the display to be full screen.

 River2u AEEM Guide - LCD Computer Monitors
LCD displays are lighter, use much less energy, and are far thinner than corresponding CRT displays, especially as the screen size increases.
The technology of LCD displays tend to project the light more directly forward than a CRT does so that image fading is noticeable as you move from directly in front of the screen to the side.
If you expect to use the display to group viewing, or in combination with many other displays, a wider viewing angle is important.

 8514 (display standard) at AllExperts
The 8514 is an IBM graphics computer display standard supporting a display resolution of 1024×768 pixels with 256 colours at 43.5 Hz (interlaced), or 640×480 at 60 Hz (non-interlaced).
8514 usually refers to the display controller hardware (such as the 8514/A display adapter.) However, IBM sold the companion CRT monitor (for use with the 8514/A) which carries the same designation, 8514.
This freed the host CPU for other tasks, and greatly improved the speed of redrawing a graphics visual (such as a pie-chart or CAD-illustration).

 Computer Will Not Boot
Seeing a blue screen of death on your computer does not always indicate a major problem with your computer.  This can be caused by many factors like power spikes or memory errors, which can be fixed just by rebooting the computer.
But if the computer does not recover after a reboot, call the computer helpdesk and give them the error you are getting and we will be able to fix the problem.
Try rebooting the computer, if the computer returns to the same screen then there is a problem with your hard drive or the operating system and any data stored on your local hard drive may be lost.

 Colour-Blindness Characterization using a Computer Display
As an example, spectral power distribution of the light emitted from each of the red, green and blue guns of a standard computer display is shown in Figure 1.
When the reference and match colours are displayed on a computer, both use the same primaries, namely the red, green and blue colour guns of the display.
For the computer matching experiment, the match can be made with two primaries in most cases, with the exception being when a value outside the range [0,1] would be needed for the primaries.
