Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series
The really weird thing is that my LCD reports it runs 12801024 but Windows refuses to set it to that resolution. It lets me use 1024600 only as my max. I can 800*600.
But in Haiku the base machine on boot only supports 640480, 800600 and a max of 1024600 like Windows, but if I plug in an external VGA monitor the display appears on both monitors and I can then set it to 12801024, unplug the external display and Haiku has no problem running the internal display at that resolution.
The only problem is if I reset the machine Haiku losses the higher resolution display.
Sound needed opensound to be installed but works fine.
Oh yes, unlike my Toshiba NB305 the SD card slot is NOT seen as a USB device, thus it can’t be seen by Haiku for storage and/or booting.
The USB ports (3) work fine so if I need a SD Card directly I use a USB<=>SD Card adapter, mostly I use the SD Card with Windows to transfer pictures.
Note: The Toshiba costed me over $350 to buy, the Acer only costed $217 which is why I think the Toshiba is a better machine but this machine was a better buy to just play around on.
PS; If you want details on the Toshiba NB305 netbook I will post them, but presently it is an older model that stopped working after I going up North, I left it in the bottom of my canoe running, but it started to rain and I did not notice how much water was being collected. By the time I go to it it already stopped working (dripping wet), I tried to dry it out over the propane gas stove in cabin, got sidetracked and melted half the keyboard. Also damaged the charging circuit (don’t ask how). Of-course it did not work, so I disassembled the entire thing, did some clean up and re-wiring, converted it to a proto-tablet and got the monster to work for the next year or so. We will not talk about me breaking the screen on my next Toshiba laptop or closing the trunk of the car onto the keyboard of the presently working Acer netbook.
Maybe I should just buy the latest Toshiba netbook and see how well it works. All these Win8 machines are driving me crazy as I know many had the option to turn off secure boot without using Win8 but the sales people know next to nothing about the hardware they sell.
