Fix the Resolution problem on netbooks

Hello everyone, and welcome to another tech-tip.
Today we will be talking about the Resolution problem that occur with Netbook while trying to run some programs.
OS: XP SP3, Netbook type HP Compaq CQ10-100

First of all lets see the error message that comes when this problem happens:

Your system does not meet the minimum requirements for Handbrake.

Your Screen is running at: 1024x600

Screen resolution is too low. Must be 1024x620 or greater.

Cause of the issue

The cause of this problem is that the program cannot run under the Netbook's resolution, in this case is 1024x600.

Some of the applications that had this problem on my Netbook:

Now we got two very simple fixes for this problem:

The First Fix

The Second Fix

Have a lovely day.
