Not sure what you are asking? Most LCD's, whether on a notebook or whatever, will automatically scale whatever the resolution is to fit the entire screen. I bought my laptop in '98, and it does this, so I don't see why anything that is more recent would not.
it doesn't scale, not due to hardware. it happens to Dell notebooks, and when installed with windows xp, lower resolutions will not scale to the full screen, sometimes. it has something to do with the software, not the TFT scaling capability. what you might be able to help me is what software would make the lower resolution scale to full screen. thanks.
Funny as mine is a Dell notebook. Hmmmm.... Uh, anyway, what I think you need to do is have Windows XP install the correct display driver for whatever you have. That should fix any problems. I run XP with my notebook and have no problems, and have had no problems with any previous version of windows back to '98.
EDIT: If that doesn't work, go to Dell's download site for your particular notebook and download their display drivers. I can't find the link to the software I found as it was back in '98 when I used it.
