Graphics

As default the native resolution of the dv6100t laptop is 1280×800, however due to the way the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 functions this resolution would not be usable straight away. You can view the Configuring the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 & 950 guide for more information.
