1024×768 resolution on Asus EeePc with out scrolling

Written by  on February 10, 2008 

The Asus EeePc is a great little laptop yes. But the resolution is to low for most things that people do.

So how do we fix this?

Get hacked drivers that will scale 800×600 and 1024×768 down to the eeepc’s native resolution. But you may want to just visit www.monitornerds.com/oled-pc-monitors and buy a new monitor to get better resolution. But you might be able to hack your driver to increase your resolution, how do you do this?

Read on πŸ˜€

http://downloads.themodshop.net/data/eeepc/eeepc_vga_scale_drivers.zip is where the drivers are located

Ok I finally got it wrote…

Click Start then right click on my computer then select properties

Goto the hardware tab and select Devices.

In the devices menu find display adapter.

Right click on the display adapters and click update driver.

Click Install manually

Then select Dont search I will select the driver to install.

Then click have disk and navigate to where you extracted the drivers.

This will install the drivers to your system.

Do this for both video adapters and then restart your EeePc and you should now be able to use 800×600 and 1024×768 scaled.

*Disclaimer* If your Eee breaks for some reason its not my fault TRY AND YOUR OWN RISK

This hack requires windows XP

but its quick easy and well worth it.

Just a side note

My Eee is the EeePc 4g running XP Media Center 2005

[edit] Props to LazerTag from the eeeuser forums for making these drivers.

  3. Tracker says:

    Thats what this whole article is about…getting hacked drivers that will let you scale a higher resolution down to the eeepc’s native resolution

  4. elenex says:

    I’m getting some really bad graphic glitches with these drivers. Most of the fonts in windows are unreadable because they simply turn into black shadows. Other parts of the GUI completeley disappear. Anyone else with these problems?

  5. exo says:

    I think that you could grab Intel’s classmate PC video drivers and use them in the eeepc, I think they use the same hardware with little dferences. The classmate cames with an scaling software from factory

  6. Hey tracker, good work!

    are you going to try and get other res’s to work like 1000 x 600??

    cheers

  7. Tracker says:

    I am working on some new drivers that if I am lucky will support atleast the same resolutions or widescreen if I am lucky

  8. spencerhaley says:

    what the heck is an eeepc and why would anyone want one. i don’t understand why people hack this when they could be hacking my dual core laptop with the widescreen and the fricken remote that slides out of the side.

  9. Tracker says:

    @spencerhaley an eeepc is a UMPC. Why would you want to carry around a 10 pound laptop with more power and bells than you will ever use when you can get a 2pound laptop that costs half as much and can do EVERYTHING you need it to?

  10. Marco says:

    Hello, I tried this, but it doesn’t allowe me to change driver because says that my driver are most recently. What can I do? Thanks

  11. me man says:

    well you know how big cars kinda denote a makeup for a lack in other areas. . . .
    nvm

  12. Staplehead says:

    Because it supports 1024 x 768…. πŸ™‚

  13. David Murray says:

    @spencerharley – For the same reason that you see people tweaking their Mitsubishi Eclipses but never see a Ford Taraus with mods. The car has no style, nothing special about it. Your Dual Core laptop is probably as bland and boring as they come, and there is probably nothing to improve on it because it probably came with everything from the factory. The Eeepc is a neat computer with personality. It offers something that the most expensive laptops can’t! It is small and cute. But it may have some limitations that people want to get around, so they mod it.

  14. Tracker says:

    We mod it make it better than it was and it can go places your big dual core overpowered laptop can not

  15. StalkS says:

    Afraid this guy just “borrowed” LazerTags driver over at eeeuser.com and forgot to give him credit. Take a look for yourself. Some people love taking credit for others hard work.

  16. Tracker says:

    StalkS: You might want to READ the blog before posting something. I gave lazertag his credit

    @SPENCERHALEY – SO I TAKE IT YOU ALSO OHAVE A HP DV6000 SERIES LAPTOP I HAVE THE 6629. AND THE THING SUCKS DOWNGRADED FROM VISTA TO XP AND CANT FIND 3 DRIVERS SO THATS MY MISSION FOR NOW TO GET THE 3 THINGS WORKING THAT ARE MISSING.. BUT AS FAR AS THIS NICE LITTLE ADD FOR A EEEPC ITS GR8.. THESE ARE NICE LITTLE MACHINES WITH QUITE A FEW USES.. NOW PUT REDLINE ON IT AND HAVE FUN.

    Swap hotkey (fnct-f5) does not work πŸ™

  19. joey says:

    Im having really bad graphics glitches.. i cant see my fonts at all. Any solution to this problems? maybe i should use another driver?

  20. Morf says:

    If you are having problems with the fonts turn off ClearType, and if needed upgrade the font size to 120 DPi (required really for 1024×768).

  21. Lenovo says:

    I’ve been trying to register for the forum to ask a question about these drivers. But I never get an activation email so hopefully someone sees this. I’m looking to do this same increase of resolution and scalability to another laptop. Specifically a lenovo x61 tablet. Does anyone know the person who hacked the drivers? I’d sure as hell would love to get in touch with this genius.

  22. matu says:

    i need all of rest of drivers
    video
    sound
    lan
    wifi

    Thnks

    @matu- http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

    dowload the XP ones and everything will run great. even the toucpad scroll amazingly.

  24. Jacob says:

    one thing the eeepc can do that a dual-core benchtop computer cannot is…. =)

    go with me on all of my bike rides (300ish miles/week) up to 120ish miles in a go. I stop to eat and check my email, weather reports, and maybe download my pictures from my digital camera, or route information from my Asus gps =)

    This laptop is just frigging sweet.

    Recover your EEPC using the recovery CD that came with it (linux) or your xp disc. Don’t forget to boot from CD in the bios and start all over.

    The installation was successful but I have a problem trying to view youtube in full screen. It had worked before in the default driver. The audio keeps going as if it still is playing but the video frame freezes. Any ideas how to fix this?

  31. John says:

    I tried this and after reboot the screen only worked on 3/4. It was in the upper left corner and went from there, but a lot of the screen was black. Tried change resolutions, but that didn’t do any good either. So I switched back to the old drivers and all is fine. Any suggestions on how to get these new drivers to work right?

  32. kusys says:

    … πŸ™‚ Hey people!!!! It works, thanks man, its greate! I make it exactly by instruction, itΒ΄s funny!
    And better is change driver for this Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter, and wifi is O.K. now.
    SUPER!

  33. Kuurozaki says:

    Will it work in Windows 7? Or does it has to be another driver for the windows 7 version?

  34. hiddenson says:

    Same problem as John, only 3/4 of the screen are used. Any solution for this one?
