Archive for the ‘Increasing screen resolution in any netbook’ Category


Although I know this topic isn’t related to Android but I saw people struggling with their limited screen resolution in their netbook and are not being able to upgrade their windows to windows 8. Here I’m gonna show you how to overcome that problem easily and safely. Follow the instructions very carefully or you might end up with frustration.

Note that making errant registry changes can disable your system so be extremely careful!  You are responsible for making and changes to your system.

Here is how I did it:

1. Press Windows Key + R, this will  brings up the Run dialog, then type:- regedit.exe


2. Scroll to the top and click on ‘Computer’

3. From the menu above choose ‘Edit’ then ‘Find’ (or ‘Ctrl + F’)

4. In the Find dialog type: Display1_DownScalingSupported

5. Hit the Find Next button (it will search for that text and may take some time)

6. When it finds the Key, click on the name in the right side and it will bring up a dialog that allows you to modify the value.  Change the value to 1

7. Hit F3 to continue the search and change that value to 1 for each Display1_DownScalingSupported key found (most probably you will find only one find)

That’s it. Now close the window and reboot your system and check whether it worked or not… I positive that it will work.
