Support for Asus N10J with 9300m GS

I am a happy owner of an Asus N10J micro notebook, netbook but not a netbook, whatever you want to call it.

It has the Atom 1.6GHz CPU (runs at 2.1GHz beautifully btw - plays Dead Space, Left 4 Dead, among many others), and the lovely 9300m GS 256MB (PCI-E 1x)

However one limiting factor on this 10" netbook is the 1024x600 resolution. There are many games (and apps even) that require minimum 1024x768. Some games can run with scrolling the screen at 1024x768, but not all, and obviously not an ideal situation always having to mouse the screen up and down to see the whole deal.

The Eee PC's with the Intel GMA 900 and GMA 950 have an option to "compress" 1024x768 resolution on the 1024x600 screen. Granted visual quality sucks, but works great for games. Problem is the GMA 950 is as anemic as it gets for games.

So I guess is there any way that I could display 1024x768 resolution on the 1024x600 screen with the GeForce 9300m GS? How would one go about this?

Thanks!

There probably is a program to do this, I just don't know of any. What you can try is an external monitor for the time.

Asus adds AsTray utility to their netbooks. You should have it already installed (you can download it in other case). You can set it to enforce 1024x600 in fullscreen games and apps.

Thanks for your response.

AsTray only works for Intel GPU, not for nVidia 9300m GS. This is not an Eee, it's an "N" series notebook.

And to Andrew, I don't care to use external monitor, that is the point of having a 10" notebook, so it is portable. It does work with external monitor, but want it for on the go. Thanks.

for my acer aspire one we use a1ctl http://nodadev.wordpress.com/pc-projects/a1ctl/ it downscales resolution to play more games

Yes, thanks. There is something very similar with the Asus Eee's.

But this isn't using Intel graphics. It's using nVidia 9300m GS. nVidia doesn't seem to have a way to control this.

It is easy to tune it to 1024 768. u can simply adjust it from regedit(nivida) from 2-1, then u can choose 1024*768. i can now play dark age of camelot. LOL
