  1. Hi, its nice and good to maintain the notebook ourselves.
    But I faced the problem something different, I couldn’t fine the resolution 1280X800as you shown the various screen resolution setting. It only appears when the OS installed but after some time was changed to 1368X768. So the screen is not fixed perfectly.
    Could you please give me some idea to fix this issue, I was updated the driver as HP CC suggest and restore the system restore point with earlier date. No use.
