    Windows 7 Full Screen Problem

    Hi First post here.



    We are currently rebuilding our lenovo R61i to run Windows 7 32bit OS, however we are hitting a problem with the display driver.



    We need to run the display settings at 1024x768, however after the PC builds we end up with 'Black vertical Bars'. This problem occurs if we use the Windows 7 PNP driver or the Intel 965 chipset driver (8.15.10.1930)



    The problem can be resolved if we go into the 'Aspect ratio' settings and set the option to 'Full Screen no border'' however we cannot get the laptops to default to this option, it always starts with 'Maintain Aspect Ratio'



    We do not get this problem with a Z61E.



    Any ideas on how we can get this to default?

    SOunds like those laptops have a higher native resoultion screen than what they are set to. In this case unless the driver is set to strech to the avalible screen size you will end up with black bars. I would look at finding the setting in the registry by toggeling the setting while using something like regmon. You could then deploy the key.

    THe big question is why you would want to, if they do have better screens why not use them. W7 will scale down to junk projector resolution when it detects it under clone mode and scale the screen on the laptop down appropriatly.

    I have spent ages with regmon switching to try and find the reg key but there are many entry each time, I did find a reg option to enable downscalingsupport but one of the subkey was never the same each time i imaged the laptop so no good doing it that way, "HKLM\System\currentcontrolset\control\video\***** *******"

    the reason why i am doing this is because we have old projector that will only full screen at 1024 x 768 have tried a higher res on the laptop plug it into the projector and screen doesn't show full on the interactive board which is a issue for calibrating correctly

    Hi

    Please see MS Deployment Notes: Desktop resolution problems

    Reschange.exe may help you.

    I will need to modify my lab to test.

    Let me know how you get along.

    @Ptotaham - OSD = Operating System Deployment. Intergration feature to deploy Windows OS from SCCM.
