Hello there, I have a problem with the resolution in my toshiba satellite laptop. The resolution for the screen size does not appear on the option to choose from. I have only 3 options which none are correct. I have the standard VGA graphics adapter chip AMO AtoBios. Version 6.1.7600 16385. I also found the following: AMD A6 3400M APU-Radeon (TM) HD Graphics 1.40 GHz. I think I need a resolution of 1680x1050 for 17 inch screen laptop. If you can help, please email me. I also missing the direct 3D video card which my screen saver in asking for. I would really appreciate you help. Thank you!
According to Microsoft, the resolution for a laptop 17 inch is 1680 x 1050.
The display does not have this resolution option into it. It only gives you
3 options which are, 1152 x 864 which is the one in current use to best fit.
The others are, 1024 x 768 and, 800 x 600 . The "list all modes" does not
have anything to best fit the resolution for 17 inch screen. The one I am
using right now does not display well. It looks to wide on the screen like
it is stretched. So do the icons. I tried to update driver but it says I have
the latest and it's up to date. I have not tried to uninstall the driver and
reinstall it. I am a little afraid that something may gone wrong. I am pretty
good with computers, but as for the drivers, I am always complicated with
downloading for fear of doing the wrong selection and screw things up.
Also, the screen saver tells me I need to upgrade the video card with one
compatible with direct 3D. Screen saver will not work when I choose to
save the bubbles screen saver. It gives me the message I mentioned
above. I saw a video on youtube which said the if the appropriate size
resolution does not show up in the display, I need to find the driver and
update it to the correct one. As you see, I have to my knowledge, two
problems which I need to correct. That is if both are not related with each
other. I really don't know. I truly need your help and best advice. I trust
I hope that this will be sufficient information so I may receive the best of
solution for both problems described here. Thank you so much for your
valuable time and for taking the interest in responding to my post.
Thank you! Since I can't find the information I have of my graphics card on this site, I am
still not sure which to download. I'll have to go with the purchase of the software so it
may install automatically. I hope this works well. Thanks.
