Is there any way to choose something other than than 1024x600 or 800x600 resolution on a Acer Aspire One D250 netbook (Windows 7 Starter).
A program we use needs at least 1024x768 but it's not available under Screen resolution (some UI elements of said program are otherwise hidden "below" the visible screenspace and unfortunately the app window is not resizable)
On a D250 with Windows XP it was possible to go to Advanced settings -> Monitor and uncheck "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display". Then I was able to select the desired resolution and scroll up and down the screen with the mouse.
In Windows 7 this "Hide modes..." checkbox is gray and not clickable :(
Edit: additional information - Intel 945 graphics driver should be up-to-date - it's version 22.214.171.1242
The monitor, though, is just a "PnP Monitor" according to the Device Manager. Maybe if it had some not-so-generic drivers then the checkbox would become available again?
