How to Use Diet Power on an MSI Netbook

Note: MSI Wind Netbooks come in a variety of operating systems. These instructions are for Windows XP only.

One issue that I ran into when I purchased Diet Power was that Diet Power requires at least 1024x768 resolution, but the maximum resolution for the MSI Wind netbook is 1024x600 (widescreen). Even just attempting to install the software results in an error and a quick program exit, to say nothing of running the software if you manage to get it installed. But the video software for the MSI Wind netbook provides an easy and very satisfactory fix. Below are screenshots showing how to make Diet Power run on your MSI Wind. (If you need to see a larger version of any graphic, just roll over it; roll back to return it to the smaller size. Alternatively, you may click on it.)

First you need to purchase Diet Power, of course, and download the installation program. To install the program, first right click on an empty portion of your desktop and select from the menu, "Graphics Properties":

To install Diet Power....

When the new window opens, you'll want to select the "Display Settings" tab and select "1024x768" from the "Screen Resolution" drop down list. After that, click "OK" and answer any dialogue box in the affirmative if it asks you if you want to keep this resolution.

Set the MSI Wind netbook's display resolution to 1024 by 768

Now an interesting thing about this setting is that it doesn't show the whole desktop on the monitor. Instead, if you want to see the top of the desktop, you've got to move your pointer to the top of your screen which causes the desktop to scroll down so that you can see the top. Moving your pointer to the lower part of your screen allows you to see the bottom. This would be an annoying way to have to run and see your Diet Power software. Fortunately, it gets better.

At this point, you want to run the Diet Power installation program. I seem to remember a dialogue box showing up after the program is installed which asks if you want to run the program. I'm not sure. But if there is one, tell it that you do not want to run it. If you do end up running the program, gracefully exit.

Now it is time to return to your desktop. The installation program should have put a little apple icon on the desktop for easy launching of the program. Mine shows up in the second column at the top of my screen:

Diet Power is installed!

What you want to do next is to right-click on that little apple icon and select "Properties":

Diet Power shortcut properties

Under the "Shortcut" tab of the window that opens you will see a field called "Target". This is the location of your Diet Power program. You want to copy that location to your clipboard. Do NOT copy the opening and closing quotes, just the location of the program.

Copy the Diet Power program location to the clipboard

With the location of the installation program safely copied to your clipboard, close the window by pressing the "Cancel" button. It's time now to return to the "Graphics Properties" window that we visited before. Open the "Graphics Properties" menu as you did before, and this time click the "Scheme Options" button in the upper right.

A window will open. In its "Name" field, type a name that you think is appropriate (I chose "Diet Power Scheme"). Put a check in the checkbox next to "Automatically launch an application when the scheme is applied." Then in the "Application" field, paste the contents of your clipboard, the location of the Diet Power program. Last, put a check in the checkbox next to, "Restore the display settings after exiting this application". Finally, click the "Save" button and you're done with this window:

The Diet Power display scheme

Now you're back at the main "Graphics Properties" window. Return to the "Display Settings" tab and select 1024x600 from the "Screen Resolution" drop down box and finally click "OK". At this point, your display properties should be returned to normal and you can see your entire desktop on your screen.

Now, delete the apple icon from your desktop, you shall not be using it again. Below is how you will launch the program from now forward:

Right click on an empty space on your desktop, and this time hover over "Select Scheme". This will open the menu to show you the shortcut to the scheme you just created (remember, I called mine, "Diet Power Scheme").

How to launch the Diet Power program

When you click on it, the Diet Power program is made to accomodate your 1024x600 screen. The program thinks that it is running in 1024x768, but it is being squished into a space the size of 1024x600. This means that you are using Diet Power essentially as its programmers intended. You see everything on your screen without needing to move the pointer to the top or bottom of your screen to scroll the desktop:

And, Voila! Diet Power is properly displayed on the MSI Wind netbook!

And that's it! What a great piece of machinery and software this MSI Wind netbook has turned out to be!
