Adjusting screen resolution lead to a black screen
#27
It's a $200 laptop, it's not perfect.  I read that people have good luck with external monitors.  Arwen's right though, the screen has a certain number of physical pixels, trying to change that involves reszing in software which never looks right.  With an HDMI monitor you can usually change the resolution because that capability is part of HDMI, you just change modes.  Different firmware might do the trick here but it's not profitable to write new firmware for old hardware.  I don't know if you can change HDMI modes with the usb -> hdmi adapter.  Resizing at a low enough level is at least fast.
