Toshiba Satellite 17" L355-S7812 Gaming Resolution Problem

I just purchased a Satellite series laptop from a local Best Buy retailer. Immediately i was taken by its preformance and am overall impressed, but i would not be here if i did not have a complaint or problem. When i try to change my Toshibas screen resolution, the resolution does not change -- The screen just gets small and black bars coat the sides of it. Whenever i try to play a full-screen video game on this laptop it never fits my screen so i have to work with a tiny box in the center. I would like to know how to really set my games to full-screen and how to change resolution while keeping the whole 17" screen i paid for.

This is a common problem with Toshiba Notebooks. Their driver is locked onto Intel version 13.29 which is a buggy driver that has an issue keeping the aspect ratio settings in the control panel. You will want to download Intel's 15.9 drivers (the zip file for developers) and force that driver to install on the notebook by manually installing the driver in the device manager.

Another fix is to enable hot keys in the intel graphics control panel and press control , shift , f11 when the game starts to change the aspect ratios of the screen.

Its annoying yes and I wish i would have known about this myself before purchasing a toshiba sattlelite.

Toshiba satellite won't go on


Hello. It sounds like either...

1. Your power adapter is damaged/not working. Look and see if a LED is illuminating on the power adapter. If it is chances are it is working fine and the problem may lie on your laptop. If not replace it. The easiest way to tell if your power adapter is bad is to go out to Wal-Mart or your local technology store and purchase one of their universal power adapters. They are expensive but you can buy it, try it, and return it if it does not solve the problem.

If you are going to buy a new toshiba ac adapter, you may consider the following toshiba l355 charger:
Replacement Toshiba Satellite L355 AC Adapter 90Watt 19V 4.74A

OR

2. The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50
