Hey all

im running winxp home sp2 on my asus eee, i currently have astray plus installed to allow access to higher screen resolutions with scaling, anyone got any idea how to set it so it always boots at the resolution size 800x600?

I have astray plus replacing the asus tray so it starts up but the screen res always reverts to 800x480, im stumped, any ideas?

Right click desktop
Settings tab
list all modes
select [480 - 800] this should fix your problem. Let me know how you got on.

Cheers but it didnt work i have since figured out how to do it, instructions below

Download latest build of AsTrap Plus
Extract and Overwrite As Tray (Program  files>asus>asus acpi)
Install Latest Drivers For Graphics Card (See Wiki On As tray For Link)
Follow AsTray Setup Steps (also on wiki, including disabling of 2 intel drivers from startup in msconfig)
Right click astray plus on system tray
Scroll Down To Line (under[quickswitch]) "880x528=880, 528, 32, 60"
rewrite to show "800x600=800, 600, 32, 60"
Save and close
Close astray plus
reboot astray plus
select 800x600 from quick switch (right click system tray icon)
select settings>save last mode


Your asus ee (xp) should now scale its resolution and all windows and icons to 800x600 with 32 bit 60hz clarity

Enjoy your new looking asus
