What are the conditions that make the method work?

 

(My system is:

Intel NM10 Express chipset with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 Driver for Windows XP, Version 14.37.50.4.5260, date 04/24/2010,

an external monitor HP LP2065, native res. 1600x1200.

The netbook (Acer AOD257) manufacturer  claims the maximum resolution for the external VGA is 1400x1350, but 1600x1200 is possible with the generic graphic driver that comes with Windows XP.)

 

I tried both

- the manual method explained by  Aaron Brezenski at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/custom-resolutions-on-intel-graphics

- and the DTDCalculator

and none had any effect on my system.

So I ask why?

question 1

 
 Aaron Brezenski wrote in his article :

This trick should work with G35, G33, G31, G965, GM965, 945G/GM, and 915G/GM

chipsets which use the 14.25.50 drivers or later.
My chipset (Intel NM10 Express) is not listed there but his article is rather old...

Shall the method work with any recent Intel driver that injects TotalDTDCount, DTD_x into registry? Or the injection of TotalDTDCount, DTD_x is not a sufficient condition and the method is also limited to certain chipsets? Or there are no clear rules that determine systems where the method works?

question 2

With my computer the higher resolution (oficially unsupported by the netbook manufacturer) works with the generic driver from Windows XP (the one that is used just after the fresh Windows instal) and also with Linux. In this situation is there a possibility the problem may still lie in the BIOS limitations?

question 3

annoying to throw away 8 pixels due to something stupid like this, but it will tide

you over until your motherboard or laptop supplier gets around to fixing their VideoBIOS.

 
 

Did it happen already? Did any laptop supplier start to forbid graphic modes in BIOS more effectively ? (I guess they would allow certain graphic modes only, in place of disallowing certain modes.)

Hi everyone,

 

I have a question, and it seems like from what I've read before from the previous comments, this question has been asked many times now.

 

The question I have is about the greyed-out "Apply" button in Ruler under Tuning tab.

 

As Woozy has pointed out many times, the monitor's current resolution must match the resolution loaded in the DTD Calculator (by clicking Create Modeline in Registry Hack tab).

 

Unfortunately, I did those already and the "Apply" button is still greyed-out. I even used the Standard Timings and changed the monitor's resolution to match with the selected Standard Timings, but the "Apply" button is still greyed-out.

 

One thing that I can think of is that, the monitor might be using different resolution than the one selected either under Window's "Screen Resolution" or Intel HD Graphics Control Panel. Just a guess, since it's pretty clear that the codes in DTD Calculator requires that my current resolution matches the resolution loaded in DTD Calculator before the "Apply" button appears.

 

Below is my monitor's raw EDID taken from MonInfo:

 

00,FF,FF,FF,FF,FF,FF,00,31,90,54,4C,01,00,00,00,01,14,01,03,81,46,27,78,8A,A5,8E,A6,54,4A,9C,26,

I've been fumbling with this issue many days now. Please help :'(

Check Intel's website for an updated driver for your chip. They released one on January 29, 2014 that allows custom resolutions.

Can you give me the link?

 

I forgot to mention that I'm using Haswell NUC. When I checked the Download Center in Intel's website, there's one graphics driver dated on 2013 though.

 

Also, in my Intel HD Graphics Control Panel, some resolutions have an option for Custom Aspect Ratio. Unfortunately, this function didn't help me with my underscan issue.

I would use the auto detect utility here http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect to get the specific driver for the NUC.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I'm having an issue with a Lenovo Ultrabook that has a native resolution of 1600x900, and connecting it via a Targus USB docking station to a Dell 2411hb monitor. When I select 1600x900 resolution and use Duplicate Displays, I get a windowed screen on the external monitor.


The only way I can get a full screen is to use 1024x768, which just doesn't look very good. The laptop is running Win 8 with .net Framework 4.5. When I try to run DTD Calculator, it says I need to install framework 3.5, but when I click "okay", the installation fails likely because 4.5 is installed.


Before I try to figure out how to uninstall 4.5 and downgrade to 3.5, will this solution even work for what I'm trying to do or given that the Dell external monitor likely doesn't support 1600x900 will this not work regardless?


Edit: I've updated the Intel drivers to the latest Jan 2014 ones as well.

I have a 2560x1440 LCD monitor with DVI-D port only, that I am trying to display from an Acer Aspire 5742-6494 Windows 7 laptop with Intel HD i3 Graphics through the HDMI port. I have not been able to find the maximum resolution of the graphics support but suspect that is why the monitor is not working since the monitor apparently does not scale to lower resolutions. So I have been advised to use a pixel clock patcher which I assume allows my laptop to simulate the higher resolution required by my monitor. Does someone know of a pixel clock patcher that I can use and whether this might work or even possibly another way to help me use this monitor on my laptop ? What are the risks to either my laptop or the monitor by using a pixel clock patcher ?

Hey,
Sorry to revive an old thread, but the new Intel driver does not solve my problem. I cannot choose 1080p for my second screen. After writing the correct DTD to my registry and rebooting everything works fine. Correct resolution. However, after shutting it down or sleep mode the computer forgets the DTD and shows an incorrect resolution. This driving me mad. Dont`t want to do these step, each time I restart the PC.
Anyone encountered the same problem or has an idea how to solve it?


Thank you very much.

Please, anyone!
How to modify the data, so that my Lenovo S10e increase the screen resoluton?
With the modded Win7 Driver or with Donwscaling_supported register I get 1152x864, but the screen displays an anamorphic (sqeezed) picture.
SO, HOW TO GET 1152x648 OR OTHER RESOLUTION FOR LENOVO S10E WITH THE SAME ASPECT RATIO AS ORIGINAL 1024x576?
