Hi, I have a Toshiba NB300 laptop running win7, and I'm trying to run some software that requires a screen res of at least 1024x700.
Unfortunately, the max res of this laptop is 1024x600.
I have searched the web looking for a solution for this, people with similar issues had been advised to uncheck the 'Hide modes that this monitor cannot display' button in the properties menu, or reduce the screen refresh rate however these appear to be disabled.
I understand that the quality might be reduced significantly but is there any work around besides returning my laptop?
I don't care if I have to scroll slightly either - I thought there could be some sort of screen resolution emulator out there - of which I am also yet to discover.
I suddenly thought though, that maybe a virtual machine could do the trick? I haven't had any experience in using VMWare, so I guess I'm asking if you can create a windows session with a screen resolution higher than my 1024x600 native res, that I could just use within the VM Window? - As a side note, when using remote desktop with a computer with a higher res than my computer supports, I get a scrollable window. This is the sort of effect I am going for.
Thanks for any help.
