Ho to view full screen in Samsungm200 while playing


If you set the guest monitor to a resolution higher than the machine supports, full screen switch mode does not work properly in the full screen player (vmware-fullscreen.exe). In some cases this can cause the guest operating system to hang.
This problem occur only in vmware-fullscreen.exe. The problem does not occur when you set a virtual machine to full screen view in the Workstation user interface you see a message advising you to reduce your guest's resolution or color depth and try again.

You will need to pay a visit to the HP website to download the drivers for your video card.
They can be located HERE
.
While you are there, udate any other drivers like audio etc. As is stands you will be running very outdated Microsft WDM drivers. Nowhere near as good as the genuine thing.

Right click on the desktop anywhere there is clear space.
Select Display properties and then select the last tab at the top of the window that pops up.
You should see the slider there to set the resoloution, and to the right is the colour depth.

DVD Player on Desktop


Have you tried using different players?  One of my favorite players is VLC.  You can google it and download it for free.  It is a bit difficult to figure out at first but it will handle just about any type of video even fragmented.
