Hi all !
I made a quick search everywhere for this but so far no luck.
I'll try tro explain as clearly and briefly as possible, but it might be a bit long so please bear with me ^^ if you don't want to read all of my boring story, skip to section 2
1/ I have an EEE PC 1015 BX which is one of the few models with AMD proc and IGP, not an Atom (Lots of people have the Atom ones).
By default it comes with 7 starter, decided to upgrade to 8 cause I'm getting used to it on my desktop. As I needed the laptop in a hurry, I didn't really checked about the minimum resolution requirement. Because, like a lot of netbooks, it comes with a 1024*600 screen which is not enough to run Modern UI apps.
Since then I used it without the apps but it's a bit frustrating cause I like those apps on my desktop. Anyway...
I tried a looooot of things (Powerstrip keeps crashing so no luck), custom inf... And then the other day I've been able to use "MonInfo" to generate yet another custom inf for my monitor. Excepted that, this time, it works ! or, nearly...
I now have the ability to switch to higher rez like 1024*768 and higher (even 75 Hz ! woot !) BUT... contrary to, say for example, my friend's Atom-based EEE PC, the screen doesn't scale to fit (and distorting it in the process, but I don't care). To be a bit more clear, it's not trying to scale anything, so I have the lower part of the screen that goes out of the screen.
So with this I can finally launch Modern UI Apps (yay !) but I miss a rather large portion of the screen (duh...), which isn't very practical. I launched CCC to mess with the scaling options like I could do on my desktop, but i don't have as many options, and the only scaling option is greyed out.
I guess it might be a setting, or it could be that the screen controller doesn't scale the image (and if that's the case, I can't do anything )
2/ Soooo... my question is : would anyone know how I could force the PC to fit my 1024*768 resolution on my 1024*600 screen ?
Thanks by advance for any idea or input.
