    Laptop Resoultion Capped off at 1152x864 instead of 1280x800


    I have a Toshiba Portege M780 S7230, and in the Developer Preview, and in the Consumer Preview until I updated the BIOS yesterday I could run it at 1280x800. Now, however, it's capped off at 1152x864. I checked the drivers for the video card, and they're fine, its the laptop monitor drivers that seem to be bad (yes, really). It shows up as Non-PnP where before it used to show up as PnP. I was able to make Windows use the Generic PnP drivers that come with Consumer Preview, and this changed the name of the device from Generic Non-PnP to Mobile PC Display where you go to change the resolution, but the cap is still there. What can I do to fix this?

    I can only say: try completely removing your video drivers and after a restart reinstall them. This might reset the monitor settings back to default.

    Sometimes the answer to a complex problem can be very simple indeed.
