Author Topic: "Fitting" 1024x768 in 1024x600 resolution? (Asus N  (Read 7724 times)

I own an Asus N10J netbook which contains an nVidia GeForce 9300m GS GPU. It is a great compact netbook. One issue though is the quaint 1024x600 screen resolution. This is fine for most cases, but if I want to play some games, they require minimum 1024x758 resolution.

The Asus Eee PC's with the anemic Intel GMA 950 GPU can "compress" a 1024x768 screen to fit the 1024x600 resolution. This is good for games, although visual quality is sacrificed, but it offers compatability.

There is no such feature for the N10J

Is there a way to use PowerStrip to force 1024x768 to fit the 1024x600 screen?

Thanks!

No, you can only do that at the GPU driver level, where 168 lines of resolution would be simply dropped.

I don't mean DROP 168 lines, but FIT or INTERPOLOATE the full 768 to fit in the 600 vertical lines. They do it with the GMA950 drivers, not sure why this wouldn't work with nVidia drivers too. I think it might have to do with the EDID of the display too.

You are dropping 168 lines; the content is being scaled.

But this would have to be done in the display driver...

Great, any idea how I do this in the display driver? I have nVidia, but no matter what custom res I make, it always pans the view if the resolution is larger than the display. I know it should be able to scale down, but so far no luck. Thanks.
