  1. Make everything smaller on 1366x768 laptop display?


    I have an HP EliteBook 8470p with a really low res display. I just bought it as a secondary beat-around laptop for stuff I don't want to use my MacBook for (outside mostly as a music streaming laptop).

    Problem: Everything is so damn huge on the crappy screen, there is barely any room and I can barely fit things into the display. Is there some way I can use the opposite of the display scaling feature in Windows 10? Instead of zooming in, I'd like to zoom out and make it look like a higher-res display. I know about setting a custom resolution, but if I were to set it as a higher res it would just look like shit.

    Anyone have any ideas? I already have the taskbar set to small and the display scaling zoom at the lowest (100%)

    Laptop display question

    Confusing statement! You want to change the display on your laptop that died?

    Is that correct?

    How do you know its the display that's bad?

    Just google "how to change display on a acer 5745"

    Should get you to step by step instructions. But first make sure its the display that's bad

  3. Cant get higher than 1366X768 resolution

    Ok I have installed win 10 on 6 different computers. I have this same problem on my Dell Inspiron and Dell XPS laptops. Both have the ability to Display at a lot higher resolutions (they were set there before install) but I cant seem to get the resolution
    to go above 1366x768. I have removed and reinstalled the newest drivers for the graphics cards. I have even installed old ones, but to no avail. The highest resolution available is 1366x768.

    Any suggestions?

    Laptop display does not detect itself

    Hi,

    In regards to your concern, since the second screen can't detect the display settings of your other laptop, we suggest that you perform the steps below and see if it helps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on System.
    • Under System, choose Display.
    • Under Multiple displays, click on Duplicate these displays and apply.
    Let us know the details so we could further help.
