How to define own screen resolutions?
Posted 16 April 2011 - 06:00 PM
Problem is, manufacturer says, no drivers needed, so they don't supply any and XP has no resolutions for a 5:4 screen, so everything looks a bit stretched vertical.
Does anyone know, how to define a own resolution in XP or has an even better idea?

The program asks Windows, if it would be so kind to switch to .... and when the requested resolution is not in the list of allowed resolutions, Windows says no.
I think, it is first necessary to tell Windows to allow the required resolution.
Not sure if the graphics card will also have a beef with a non default resolution.

Tryed it and it sort of works.
I have a new resolution. But instead of squeezing the desktop verticaly, like i wanted, it added extra pixels to the hight, so that the taskbar is now off screen and the monitor menu does not allow to change hight and width of screen like with CRT.

When i follow you link, i get to rm education login. That sounds wrong. Is it?
You need to register. It is very quick. It is also in the Beta downloads section of the RMPrepUSB website now (no login required :-) )

Set for now the resolution to 120dpi and that seems to be somewhat usable.
However if someone knows, how to correctly use this dialog, to create usable new resolutions, i would be very interested in a lesson.

not really sure if it fits into the topic but I've got another newbee question relating to screen resolutions:
Scenario: I have successfully built a WIN7PE-ISO image which I am booting from disk. When, for example, setting the default display resolution in the main config script to 1280x1024 (prior to building the ISO) and using a display which has it as its native resolution - no problems. The resolution is set correctly after startup.
But what can I do when I need to use a 32" TV screen with a native resolution of 1366x768 (or any other 16:9/16:10 aspect ratios)? Do I have to integrate the appropriate video drivers in order for that to work?
Thx in advance & kind regards,

Yes, for non default resolutions, you will need to install a driver, which supports them.
