Abstract (en)

The method involves checking the type of a display apparatus connected to a computer system after the computer system is switched on, so that a suitable resolution or image reproduction can be set. When the type of the attached display is checked, if a PC monitor is detected, a PC resolution is set. If a PC monitor is not detected, a television resolution is set. The detection of the connected display device is performed by the computer system BIOS.
