MS Virtual PC 2007 and screen resolution problem

I just got my new awsome "Dell from Hell" laptop!..

My laptop is running vista ultimate and works as a Virtual PC server.

This is all great, but I ran into a little problem with the screen resolution.
The problem was that im using 1920x1080 on my laptop and the VPC can't give me that resolution, so the VPC was surrounded with a black frame every time I went to fullscreen, and that was quite anoying.

I found a fix - well it's not a real fix, but it works until Microsoft update their s3 trio driver to handle my resolution.

The fix is to start VPC, and then connect to it via Remote Desktop.

If anyone knows a better fix, please let me know :)

  1. Hi,

    I too have the same problem. Your solution to use remote desktop worked for me. It is bit slow.
    Thank you for your temporary solution.

    I modified resolution in VPC same as host computer but still when i switch to host computer from VPC the screen becomes black in VPC.

    Is there anyone can help me to resolve this.
