    Dislay Resolution only 1028x600 on Toshiba Satellite A100


    I upgraded Toshiba Satellite A100-998 with XP Media Centre to Windows 8 Pro. Before upgrade the screen resolution was 1280x800 on a NVIDIA GeForce Go7300 graphics adapter.

    Windows 8 pro upgrade has installed only the Standard Microsoft Graphics Adapter of 1028x600. I have searched registry for Display1_DownScalingSupported key but it does not exist.

    I have attempted to find another driver on the NVIDIA and Toshiba web support but I am unsure what would be the right one.


    The laptop clearly can support the higher resolution can one offer any idea on how to resolve the issue.

    Hi people

    An update to my post with a solution that worked for me which mercifully was easy to do

    Downloaded from Windows®7. Your PC, simplified. and deployed the NVIDIA Display Driver version 7.15.11.7976 which installed the GeForce G07300 Display Adapter which is the same as when the laptop had XP. The screen resolution is now back to 1280x800.

    You can also get drivers from LaptopVideo2Go
    They mod the latest driver so even old graphics cards can use new features
