The Question is:

Using VMS, how do I change the Video Resolution on my VAX/Alpha Workstations? I
 need to go from
1280 x 1024 to 1024 x 768. Thanks.

The Answer is :

  To paraphrase your question, you have asked which size vehicle tire you
  need, and have not indicated which manufacturer nor model vehicle is
  This has a direct dependence on the particular graphics controller.  In
  some cases, systems have integrated graphics controllers and little or
  expansion for graphics.  In other cases, various VAX and Alpha systems
  can have a specific graphics controller from the available and supported
  graphics controllers available, and in various case multiple (identical)
  controllers can be installed into the same system.
  As a start, please see the OpenVMS FAQ for introductory information on
  graphics controllers, on video resolutions, and on compatibility with
  various display monitors.
