    my laptop cannot project to another screen


    After installing Win8 on my laptop i was unable to project to another screen i always get a message saying that i need to re-install my driver or use a different video card. The one im using now is called Microsoft Basic Display Adaptor and the highest resolution is 1280x800. So is there a way to get a higher resolution or is there another way i can fix this problem ?

    Thanks

    Once you installed 8, did you install the window 8 drivers for it? Does your Sony support windows 8 drivers for it?

    no, but i tried to update it and it said that it is up to date. i think this has to do with the minimum required resolution to be able to snap apps and project to another screen which is 1366 x 768. here are screen shots of my video card driver.

    thanks
