    Gigabyte S1080


    I'm running a Gigabyte S1080 tablet with a native resolution of 1024 x 600, but with a registry change I'm able to adjust that resolution, in Windows 7, to 1024 x768 or 1152 x 864. I can then select any of those resolutions and things work fine.

    I've installed Windows 8 as a dual boot option on the tablet, and changed the registry values as I did with Windows 7, but Windows 8 still only sees the 1024 x 600 screen resolution and therefore none of the apps will work. The desktop feature works fine, as does most everything else, but without the apps working, I can't really do much in terms of tablet activity.

    Does anyone have a similarly configured tablet or notebook etc and found a way to spoof the screen resolution to get Windows 8 to see a higher screen resolution?

    Problem Solved! It appears that Windows 8 only has one instance of 'Display1_DownScalingSupported' in the Registry, so what I did was create another DWORD in the second list, restarted and I could change the resolution, and everything is fine. The two locations are:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E 968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E 968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0001
