    Evening,

    I recently purchased a new asus X751S for college and i looked for something that can also support some of my steam games. This laptop so far is perfect however there is one thing that I am not sure how to fix.

    What I'm looking for is this

    However on my graphics properties only gives me this

    Now I've done the basic stuff as try to update my graphics driver https://communities.intel.com/thread/103311
    However i get an error that says my manufacturer wont let me install latest version due to interfering with my current one.

    I'm puzzled on what to do, if anyone can give me tips i'd gladly appreciate it!

    Thank you.

    ASUS X751SA Notebook (support site)
    According to your "PC SPECS" log, yours has an Intel Pentium N3700 1.60 GHz quad core processor

    so that means it has an Intel HD Graphics 400 MHz integrated graphics device.

    I've never played Steam games, so I'm not familiar with the needed system requirements.
    Be patient and wait until one of the experts here jumps in.

    Appreciate the reply

    And i must excuse my self, I presented a situation without explaining my problem.

    What I am experiencing is on the left, what i want is whats on the right. As I cannot attain it because as i said above im unable to go into the override application setting to enable this. However currently im having difficulty upgrading my graphics card driver to the latest version which has this new option.

    This is the current graphic driver listed for Windows 10 64-bit at that notebook's support site:

    It's a newer version than what's listed at the Intel driver downloads site.

    your intel hd graphics wont do much for gaming but i think if you lower your video settings you can get decent framerates out of it.

    i think you're downloading the wrong driver for your card. have you tried usong a third-party driver updater? iObit's driver booster updated my graphics drivers for me when i couldn't get it to update. same problem as yours

    That's bad advice.
    We recently had someone else here who used that same utility and then wound up with non-working USB ports.

    What happens when you click on Center Image? The Center Image only shows up for me after I click on Center Image, you appear to still be clicked on Maintain Aspect Ratio.

    Center Image should add black bars to each side if you are choosing a 4:3 screen resolution. If you want to remove the black bars set the resolution to a widescreen resolution or use the Scale Full Screen option.

    Scale Full Screen is what you want.

    Is this not your screenshot:

    If it is then it has that option. Also uncheck Maintain Aspect ratio if you want it to fill the full screen.
