Hi guys, i have a little problem with my HP Omnibook XE3-GF which have almost none options to set in BIOS. What i want and using with different machines is LCD screen stretching and set pc speaker volume. So far everything that runs on Dos is shrinked in huge black border. Is there any way to replace or unlock more options in bios so i can optionaly stretched to fullscreen ? Thanks for any ideas 😀

Look in "System Devices" iirc there's an option to expand the image. (at least on my XE3-GC... I really ought to find a solution to replace the broken HDD adapter)

For me there is no such option in this tab at my laptop 😒 maybe try newer version or some modded bios ?

Could be that the "LCD Fill" option is unfortunately specific to the XE3-GC (which has a S3 SavageIX/MV, compared to the XE3-GF's Intel 830MG graphic chip). In that case you won't be able to do anything for that 😒
