Toshiba Satellite 17" L355-S7812 Gaming Resolution Problem

\015 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.\015

Answers :

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.

Im having problems with my resolution. I have a Toshiba Satellite A135 S2386. I recently downgraded to XP and the only problem is the display. It won't let me set it to 1280 x 800 or whatever it should be, so everything is stretched. It's reading the correct graphics driver (ati radeon xpress 200m series) so that can't be the problem.
