As default the native screen resolution of the Satellite A100 is 1280×800 but due to how the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 works this resolution would not be usable right away. View our Configuring the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 & 950 guide for instructions on how to deal with this.
Only some quite minor configuration work was required to get the Toshiba Satellite A100 working properly with Linux.
