you can push to 1024X768, but that's more like an interpolation or whatever.

I can get 1366x768 on my hd screen with no problem.

so, you are messing things up... not the hardware
Then we all must be messing it up... Windows 7 won't allow you to push it up to the next level (which is 1024x768). The option shows up, but it just won't do it.

I can do that in xp. Haven't tried it in win7.

But why would you want to do that. LCD only looks good at native resolution...

For regular screen, you are only supposed to run at 1024x576

For HD screen, you are only supposed to run at 1366x768

If you run at a non-native resolution, things will look fuzzy.

because some programs need a higher aspect ratio to run.

You should download a program called "astray"

EeeUser ASUS Eee PC Forum / AsTray Plus --- Updates & FAQ

(best I could find in a 2 second google)

It allows you to set the resolution higher than physically possible, the screen just 'pans' over to the unseen areas. Should help you install some programs.

Secondly, Adobe suck major balls if they don't let you install programs with < 800 x 600!


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

If you only need Adobe to read PDFs, there are other (free!) options out there. Foxit Reader is the one that comes to mind immediately, but there are others. There are also free programs that let you create PDFs (check the Windows Application forum for a thread on those). I'm willing to bet that there's at least one program out there that does not have the 800 x 600 resolution requirement.

Just a thought in case the above solution doesn't work out for you.

If you're still within the 21 day return window, you may want to return it, and get a 10v instead.
how does the 10V have a better chipset than the regular 10? the regular 10 has hdmi out and display of 1366x768 which my Win7 ultimate installation works just fine with after a single windows update download.

Hi guys,

My first post on the forums, I've been reading a a lot about the Mini 10. Everyone here has been really helpful, so thanks!. But I'm getting mixed views about the GMA500 graphics chip and Windows 7. I'd really like the Dell mini 10 with the HD screen, as i need the screen real-estate. Can anyone confirm that Windows 7 works (possibly with these new drivers) on the 1366x768 screen? I'm not too fussed about 720p HD playback, but would like it to play back standard definition videos smoothly!

Many Thanks
Sam

Windows 7 "works" on both Mini 10 versions and as a subset of that, it works on the Mini 1010's 720p option. Whether it works "fine" is a matter of personal opinion.

My personal opinion of Windows 7 (builds 7000, 7022, 7068, 7077, 7100 and 7127) on the Mini 1010.....it works quite well in some respects (ease and completeness of installation, particularly). In other respects (video and hard disk access) it sucks big time. Hi Def videos generally won't play with Aero enabled and often stutter even with Aero disabled. Granted Windows 7 is still in development and newer drivers may be developed for the Mini 10. However, I don't think newer drivers will help the Mini 10's pathetic hard drive performance and with 1GB of RAM there will be no miraculous improvement in video performance.

OTOH, the Mini 10v does handle Hi Def fairly well, albeit with a lesser screen resolution.

it does work well. HOWEVER make sure if you have the bone to get the one (1010) that has the higher res. if you get the 10 with 1024x576, that is all your going to get with windows7 i have tested it. When using xp on that same computer, you can boost it up to 1024x768. I have not tested this on the 10v. I assume its the same cuz i have made many threads about the issue but no one has responded to them. sux

choose your model carefully. I am getting the V because I want to upgrade my ram and have a faster processor but i do not have HDMI out.
