Gaming :: Lower Resolutions Make Smaller Screens On Laptop

Mar 27, 2014

This occurs especially during games, my native resolution is 1366x768 but whenever I choose a lower resolution than that in games, the size of the game on the screen becomes smaller than my laptop's display/screen (15.6"). Why does this happen? Is it a laptop issue only? My older laptop had the same problem.

PS: I have the latest graphics drivers.

Run Metro Apps In Lower Resolutions?

Apr 3, 2014

There's a workaround right now to run metro apps in lower resolutions by the "Downscaling support" trick from registry.

However I found out that resolution check can be bypassed by editing a file in Windows 8. This works on Windows 8.1 too!

Asus Tablet - Snap Using Lower Resolutions (1280x800)

Oct 23, 2012

Do you think it will ever make it so you can "snap" using lower resolutions?

My Asus tablet does 1280x800 which is lower than the 1366x768. I know there was a hack on the earlier releases but any way there would ever be a way to do this on lower resolutions now.

Graphic Cards :: Multiple Monitors / Screens - How To Get Different Resolutions

Dec 24, 2013

I have a brand-new HDCP supporting monitor (native resolution 1920 x 1080,) on which I play the latest blu ray movies from the computers built-in blu ray drive, and a 9 year old flat screen non-HD plasma TV (on which I watch You Tube, BBC iPlayer and 4OD, streamed from the PC via a VGA cable,) both connected to my GT610 NVidia graphics card.

It seems I can only get them at the same resolution. My desktop does however have it's own on board graphics processor. Is it possible to run these two devices at different resolutions? (Since the ancient flat screen can only handle resolutions up to 1600 x 1200.)

Graphic Cards :: Multiple Desktop Resolutions - Running Windows 8.1 Update

Sep 15, 2014

I'm currently running Windows 8.1 Update with an NVidia 660TI with two DVI monitors at 1920x1200 and a 1080p TV from the HDMI output. I'm having trouble with the 1080p TV in that when I drag an application (Store or Win32) onto the screen, the top and bottom is truncated when I maximise it. For example, if I drag Windows Media Player over to the TV and maximise it, the play, forward and rewind buttons when visible are cut in half at the bottom of the screen.

Scaling Screen Smaller Than 100%?

Jan 7, 2013

Yesterday I installed the Nvidea driver for my Geforce 210 (desktop resize and scaling options) in Windows 8. After the update, my screen flickering black. System restore and it still works again.

Now I have a problem with the scaling of the screen, because the corners are not visible at my screen, and I want to retain my recommended and native screen resolution, to avoid a blurry screen.

Are there possibilities in Windows without the NVIDIA tool, to scale mij screen smaller than 100 percent ( the Windows tool make text smaller or larger will only work ABOVE 100%, and not smaller).

Gaming :: Freeze While Gaming - DSIM Commands Show No Errors Neither BSOD

Jun 17, 2014

I am having some problems with 3 years old PC. Only while playing games (Civ 5 - Heroes & Generals - Rise of nations) I suffer from freeze/crashes, PC doesn't show a BSOD, the mouse pointer works normally it doesn't freeze (until I try to alt+tab or alt+ctrl+del), and from my speakers I can hear looping sounds.

The only thing I can do is a hard reboot. I try reinstalling windows, and the problem still exists.My BIOS, drivers* and OS are update, I perform a memtest for 6 hours and show no errors, I can run prime95 + kombustor and everything is fine, no temps problems, GPU never go over 68c and CPU at 58c, and no crashes.

DSIM commands show no errors neither.

*I tried latest NVIDIA drivers, and old ones, im actually using 334.89 version, and the problem persist.

Lower CD Capacity On Win 8.1?

Mar 29, 2014

I purchased a new Toshiba laptop with Win 8.1. On my old XP Dell, I was able to copy a 699MB folder of music MP3 files to a CD to play in my car. I've done it many times, and have 8 folders on my computer that I frequently copy to CDs for that purpose. In the past, I've copied 700 MB of files to a CD without difficulty, so I learned to maximize the number of files by storing the data in groups of 699 MB to avoid overloading a disk.

I tried to copy those folders to a CD using the new Win 8.1 machine, and have discovered that the CD capacity is only about 696 MB. I'm using the same CDs, and attempting to copy the same files. The only difference is the operating system and the new hardware. When I contacted Toshiba, the tech said Windows 8.1 stores files differently on CDs and the capacity is about 2MB less than on older machines.

Can this possibly be true?!? Is this a Windows 8.1 problem, or a hardware problem? Do I need to use my older XP computer to maximize the number of files I can store on a CD?

A Lower Level Start Screen?

Jan 5, 2014

I am new to Windows 8, which I am using with a non-touch screen so I am dependent on the mouse for controlling actions. The Start Screen has enough items on it to require me to scroll across to see them all, even when grouped. I would like to be able to have a second (lower level) screen which opens when I click on an item in the main Start Screen. For example, Microsoft Office has about 8 programs within it (Word, Excel, etc) and at present these are all separate items on my Start Screen. Is it possible to have just one tile on the Start Screen (labelled MS Office) which, when clicked, leads to another screen on which the eight programs appear?

Alternatively, (and this perhaps should be a separate thread) is it possible to have separate icons for these programs on the Desktop (but not in the Taskbar). I noticed that some programs which I installed appear on both the Start Screen and the Desktop, while others only appear on the Start Screen.

Gaming :: What Role Does CPU Play In Gaming

Dec 31, 2013

I have a question regarding PC gaming, since I realy dont know as much as I would like to.

My question is what role does my CPU play in gaming? Is it a big thing? I always thought that having a strong, powerful graphics card was more important that a powerful CPU.

Is there a particular thing that the CPU does in PC gaming that makes having a strong one essential?
