Dialog boxes truncated in HP-Mini 110-1039NR netbook display.

[ Edited ]


The screen display on my HP-Mini 110-1030NR netbook computer

supports a different aspect ratio than most CRT and LCD

monitors, 1024X576 versus 1024X768 pixels. This results in

the display of the dialog boxes of some programs; e.g., PC

Backup Pro v11.0, to have their lower portion truncated. As

this is the area where action buttons are usually located, the

buttons cannot be accessed by mouse pointer.


I tried temporarily changing the display resolution setting

to 800X600,as described in the hp.com support document

#01664816, but the dialog boxes still were truncated.


Yes, the buttons can be activated by pressing the tab keys

until the desired button is active, then pressing the Enter key, but that requires first

performing this action with a conventional video display to

learn the required number of tab key activations to reach

the desired button. For frequent use, this is not a viable



The operating system is Windows XP Pro SP3.


Is there a way to fully display the dialog boxes on this netbook's screen?

Bryan, thank  you  for your response. Unfortunately, the netbook is operating with Windows XP, as stated in my query, and the workaround is restricted to Windows 7. Because of the particular programs (DOS) being executed on the netbook, I do not want to upgrade to Win 7 at this time.
