Hi. My problem is that I want to play some games that don't support widescreen, in my laptop, which is a samsung with nvidia and intel (so is optimus enabled). It has a core i7 3615, so it hast a intel hd 4000. Now, in my old laptop, I remember there was an option called "mantain aspect ratio", which is not there any more. This is what I see in the panel properties:
The box called scaling now has only two option, center image and scaled full screen, but none of them is what I want. So... why the option to fill the screen maintaining the aspect ratio is gone, and how can I make it return?
I was using the driver provided by samsung, but I updated to the official driver (expecting this to solve the problem) but is exactly the same
Actually, that screenshot was taken in a non-native resolution. My native resolution is 1920x1080, and that picture was taken when the resolution was at 1280x1024. If the screen is in my native resolution, then I only see one option, that is Maintain Display Scaling.
I bet this has to do with that optimus crap, which is nice and all, but there should be a way disable it and manually turn off one graphic card, or like my friend laptop, were the system use the integrated graphic when is in battery mode, and the radeon when is plugged.
In this case, you should only be using the drivers that are provided specifically by your computer manufacturer as this may affect the way of Optimus will operate in your system and our generic drivers will not operate properly in your system.
I suggest that you check with your computer manufacturer for further information on how to enable this in your system, possible through a registry edit process or a patch from their customized drivers.
Hello. I have such problem too. I bought notebook asus x201 with the only intel hd 4000 videochip and I too don't have maintain aspect ratio. I'm using windows 7 32bit, and I tried general intel drivers and ones from windows update - nohing changed. I have only two variants - fit the screen and disable scaling. Can this be a driver fault?
PS I can't install manufacturer driver, asus site gives only drivers for x64 windows...
Pps:tried to create new topic, but for unknown reason I failed.
I tried both. Mainly I use internal screen of notebook, but tried also with external monitor(Samsung 225mw, connected through d-sub). Both displays don't have possibility to enable aspect ratio scaling. I don't think it is problem of displays, it can be fault of graphics driver or bios(possibly graphics bios, if they are independent). If you checked graphics and everything is normal, then it seems to be bios problem. Asus is keeping scilence about this question...
So, problem is still there and no one seems to have answers for it Asus keeps scilence, my technical inquiries after two days receive status "Close!" and I don't receive answer...
People from Intel, can you say what is different in upper given Lenovo driver for XP from your generic? That driver is the only one, which give possibility to enable aspect ratio scaling. Looked for register information: "maintain aspect ratio" is set in profile in record "PrimaryDisplayAspectOption" if it is equal to "4". Tried to edit profile in 7 - received message, that this mode is not supported... So any clue/tweak/mod for driver?
