  • This has been mentioned a few times concerning netbooks. What is your screen resolution? The minimum required resolution for the modern apps is 1024x768. Some netbooks only display at 1024x600.

    1. Make sure your machine is running the latest Windows 7 display drivers
    2. Connect the netbook to a monitor -- preferably 1080p or above
    3. Go into Desktop and select the native resolution in control panel. (right click: screen resolution)

  • You might also try this reghack to enable larger (compressed) resolutions if you're netbook is using intel GMA graphics card: http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=80812 . Worked fine on my eee1000H
