How to: boost the display resolution on an Asus Eee PC

January 14, 2008

From JKOnThRun- “I haven’t tried this yet since I’ve just returned from CES, but Joel popped me a note on increasing the resolution of the Asus Eee PC. The native resolution of this sub-notebook is 800 x 480, the same as many first generation UMPCs. If you’re running XP on the Eee, Asus provides a software utility that easily switches you to 800 x 600 on the 7-inch display, but you’ll be panning, i.e.: you won’t see that resolution on the full screen.

Joel tells me that Eee User has a solution to gain a higher full-screen resolution on the 800 x 480 panel. This approach looks very similar to what I’ve used on the Samsung Q1 series: it’s a combination driver & software method to simulate display resolutions higher than native. You’ll need to have Windows XP on your Eee, which I still do since I needed XP for the CES…” More at JK.
