1024x768 Resolution on NetBook with Windows 7

So you have your NetBook all setup how you like it but that 1024*576 or 1024x600 resolution is stopping you from running your favorite programs .. or you just feel like you should have a bit more space.

Here it is 1024x768 resolution on a NetBook Registry Hack for Windows 7 only

So I can't take credit for this one the guys over at pointed this one out .. and it works great for:

1024X768 on my new HP 2140 mini...

so here goes

Go to Start Menu

Click on Run

(if its not there)

you will have to Right click on the Start Menu and click properties

On the Start Menu Tab click Customize

Scroll down till you see the check box for run and click it and the click OK

Click Apply

Go back to the Start Menu and it should be there under Help and Support

Click Run

in the box type in "regedit" (with out the quotes) Click OK

Click YES "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?"

***** Warning you are about to Edit your registry ... This could FUBAR your computer .. and render it useless .. before doing any registry edits you should have a restore point set up or a back up of your entire computer ... or at the very least a back up of your registry.. I take no responsibilities if you proceed from here.*****

If you are ok with all of that lets proceed

Make sure the icon for the computer is highlighted

Click on Edit and Find

you are searching for "Display1_DownScalingSupported"

Type all of that in (with out the quotes .. and that is an underscore.. not sure if caps matter but type it in the way it shows

and Click Find

there are more than a few of these to change ... so you will have to do this more than once

When it finds this value. Double click the value and change it from 0 to 1

Press the F3 (function key 3 above the #3 key) and it will search again do this for every one you find.

once you reach the end of the registry close regedit and reboot... (cross your fingers;)

Right Click on the desktop after reboot Click on Screen resolution now you have options for 1024X768 and 1152X864

To get back to Native Resolution you will have to Click on the Advanced Settings

Click on List All Modes from the Adapter Tab and chose either 1024 by 576 or 1024 by 600 depending on your NetBooks native resolution.

There you have it ... 1024 by 768 bliss on your NetBook..

**** Note so this is a hack to get the screen resolutions higher than the NetBooks were meant to do. The screen will look squished. Due to the fact that you can not physically add pixels to the screen. You can only trick it in to thinking it has more there so your screen will look different (squished) via compression. *******

Eee Pc 1005HA and EEEPc 1005HAB Power Issues

Eee Pc 1005HA and Eee Pc 1005HAB Power Issues

Eee Pc 10005HA / Eee Pc 1005HAB No power will not charge the battery.

I am not sure if this is an emerging issue with the Asus Eee pc 1005ha but I have received a couple of pleas for help on the Eee pc's both the 1005HAB and the 1005HA.

If we can get the part numbers this may fix some power issues with the EEEPc's (warning this repair would require surface mount soldering so if you are not sure of what you are doing ... it could make things much worse ... as if your EEEPc not working could be any worse..)

Here is a shot of the transistor

If you have one and are disassembling your EEEpc if you could take pictures and/or note the numbers on the transistors starting in "t0.." I'm sure quite a few folks would thank you for it.
