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?

I found an interesting link that may provide a workaround.
Please let me know if this works.
This process it not officially supported by HP but it may be able to help you

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.
