    Win 8 64bit apps wont run because the screen res is low


    I have a msi u270 with an amd e-450 but the res is only 1024*600. I saw about the changing of the value for an index file called "Display1_DownScalingSupported" but i cannot seem to find it. I tried installing drivers and then tried but could not find it then i tried again with the latest beta drivers from the amd website but i cannot find that. Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance
