Hi,
hope this is the right section. Have installed Windows8 on my Dell Inspiron 1012 which is about 3 years old. Opens Mobile Broadband okay, but cannot access the Windows8 apps as the screen resolution is insufficient. Have got through the computer function but cannot increase it above 1024x600. Is there any way to increase the resolution to 1024x768 without changing screens or taking it to a service store as this would make the laptop unviable.
Thanks G

it may be the max resolution possible with the graphics- what windows did you have before and what resolution did you have

also where did you get the windows 8 from ?

Was originally installed with Window7 starter, resolution was set at the maximum, 1024x600. Downloaded Window8 from the Microsoft online store

The two resolutions are for two physically different screens that are available on that model.
