Default 800x600 correct aspect ratio - 05-10-2009, 09:40 AM

Just wanted to let you guys know that if playing games in their correct aspect ratio is important to you, the Intel GMA driver allows for displaying a centered, not-stretched, 800x600 screen on the Mini 9. You need to (1) right click the desktop, (2) click properties, (3) click the "settings" tab, (4) Click the "Advanced" button, (5) Click the Intel GMA tab (6) Click graphics properties, (7) click "display settings", (8) Click "Aspect Ratio Options" button, (9) choose "Maintain Aspect Ratio."

You will, of course, have black bars to the left and right of the image, and thus some may consider the cure to be worse than the disease, but frankly, I prefer playing games in their correct aspect ratio over having a stretched screen that makes everything look squashed, even if it does mean having to live with the borders.
