    Hi!

     

    I want to upgrade my AOD 270 to Windows 8 but the Metro Apps do not work on it, resolution 1024X600 are not supported. How can I upgrade to a higher resolution ?

    Good day

     

    In an attempt to ensure that applications built for the Windows 8 platform can deliver a consistent experience regardless of the devices they have been loaded on, Microsoft decided to set the minimum supported resolution on the
    platform at 1024x768

     

    Regards,

    Running windows 8 is not really possible due to a lack of graphics drivers, for more information you can look at the Intel forums.

    If you search Google/youtube you will find references to a registry fix for this to raise the resolution so windows 8 will load correctly on 10.1" screens...be careful if doing this as several people have ensured their machines didn`t boot again by this registry fix....!!!
