holy re-fried chicken burger, Batman! holo has an actual question!
heres my (more my little sisters) issue. not sure what category this falls in, maybe all of them..
but what i have is a lappy, err netbook, rather, with a fubar'd screen. it's pretty much split in 2. but through trial and error, i managed to boot the system up, and get it running on my crt monitor, via VGA mode. booting normally, is a no go, it loads the windows logo, then goes black. the problem with vga mode, is it makes everything gigantic, and jittery, virtually unusable for any kind of productive use. and attempting a resolution change everything goes black. to my understanding, VGA mode is only capable of 640x480...
Sooo is there a way to change the display settings (in VGA mode) for the NORMAL boot so that i can use my external display at 1024 resolution? maybe a cfg file or similar?
here are the units specs.
MFC - Acer Aspire One (AOA150 - 1949) (hotpink...)
CPU - Intel Atom n270 @ 1.6Ghz
RAM - 1GB ddr2 (800Mhz?)
GPU - Intel Integrated Chip 950
OS - Windows XP Home SP3
and the monitor im trying use is a generic CRT 15" w/ 1024 native res.
If you think you can help, fire away.you'll make a 12 yr old girl very happy.
I realize that this maybe futile, but so is resistance, and that the lappy will no longer be portable. Discuss?
forgot to mention. the netbooks screen is tiny, 10" maybe, and idk what the native reso/refresh rate is. not sure if it matters, all is i know is that whatever it it set to, it is unusable with my external monitor. i figure that it has wide screen resolution, that my monitor cant display, hense the black screen. which is why i need to change it somehow, possibly in safe mode or other....
