This is annoying because I like to hook my NC10 up to my TV which runs at 1280×768.
When I had XP installed the res would go a lot higher, not all of the desktop would be displayed on the NC10’s screen, you’d kinda have to scroll across. If I then cloned the display, it would appear perfectly normal on my TV.
The max res of my TV is actually 1380×768 but I could never set it to that in XP, the slider just wouldnt move to it, it would go from 1280x to 1460x mssing 1380x completely. Anyone know why that is?
I can live with 1280×768 but 1024×600 makes me want to throw my tv onto a fire.
Which display driver is everyone using for Vista? I’m using the ones from the intel site, if you are also, could you check to see if you can set your res any higher?
Thanks in advance.December 7, 2008 at 10:30 pm #174075jaegerMember
Is it just me with this problem?
Can anyone set their res higher than 1024×600?December 8, 2008 at 1:10 am #174073dougpMember
Mine won’t go any higher also.December 15, 2008 at 1:14 am #174074shawnee3Member
Did you try going to display settings, advanced, monitor and unchecking box that says “hide modes that this monitor cannot display” ? I had to do this on my wife’s aspire one in order to install Photoshop Elements 5. It required at least 1024 X 78. Same was true for my Sammy.December 15, 2008 at 3:03 am #174072newstMember
I had the same issue when I first installed Vista. It went away after I installed the 945 chipset drivers from the intel website.December 15, 2008 at 5:50 pm #174076saureyMember
This is the problem:
1) Your notebook only supports 1024×600 on its’ screen. There is no reason to go over this for normal people on the notebook’s screen.
2) 1366×768 is not divisible by 16, therefore it’s a non-standard resolution that was designed for TV’s. You need a special display driver to achieve this resolution. Google it and you might find one for outputting tv.
I recommend though going 1280×720 if you can output like that. (720p) TV’s handle this well. If you have a 1080p TV, I don’t think you can output 1920×1080 over standard VGA cable and might need DVI/HDMI, which there aren’t any converters.
Lastly, for what its’ worth, 1280×720 looks fantastic on my 37″ Hannspree Hannslounge TV (google that ;)) but 1366×768 or 1024×768 look pretty crappy. I don’t use pc in much anyway.
I think in the future all notebooks will have HDMI, but I don’t know how long that’ll be. Some Sony’s have it now and output their blu-ray that way.
Hope this helps.
