Those small ones usually have limitations on the screen suggestion is to go to that website, where you will need the model number, and then find out. but it is clear that this one does NOT have that resolution capacity

Hi LSmitten,

So your brother has laptop, and you can't change the screen resolution, I will take a guess that most likely the screen resolution right now is 800x600 or 640x480 which most games won't work with. The most likely culprit why you are not able to adjust the video resolution is that he hasn't installed the video driver of the laptop yet. You should install the video card driver for your laptop in other for you to change the resolution of your desktop. I suggest that you download the latest video driver from the computer manufacturer's website.

Also if he is using a older laptop, the LCD screen on a laptop has a set maximum resolution that you can use only. Older model laptops can only go as high as 800x600 upto 1024x768. Most of the new laptop nowadays have a minimum LCD panel of 1280x800 widescreen. Check the PC manual to see the max resolution the LCD can handle.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

How to configure my laptop so window fits monitor display

Hi ,
You can right click on your laptop , and this will bring up a menu , look for screen\ res. , highlight and click , this will take you to the display prop. ,on the left hand side you see change display res. when this menu pops up , you will have a chance to change the res. I would go with 1024x 768 res. it seems to be the best res. to fill the display .

Change screen to 1024x720

The monitor and your video card are going to be what determines what resolutions you have available to use. Even on a laptop. If "settings" does not give you the option for that resolution, the display or the video chipset cannot be manipulated to display it on the laptop. Right click on desktop and select "Properties", then look under "settings". It might be available to you, but you just never checked.

One option if the laptop is not capable of it, is to plug in an external monitor that can display it.

Lcd is very dim. after changing res a glow in the lower right corner starts then back to darkness. It works fine with my vga monitor.

Hi, display DIM cause by LCD or inverter Board (brightness controller). Might costly. Up to you either want to change it or not.
And using external monitor is best solution, I think so. =)
