Graphic Cards :: How To Change The Maximum Resolution Of W8.1
Jul 31, 2014
OK, what I want to do is the same that a lot of users that have their smartphones (Android OS), is change the original DPI o screen resolution (force a different scale/resolution) For example: what I'm trying to say of Android OS is when you want more space avaible on your desktop or the objects/texts/sidebar/icons/etc... looks like smaller than before, you just need to go to this directory (/system) and edit the file (build.prop) and finally locate the line called (ro.sf.lcd_density=xxx) and change the original density number of your screen's device by other smaller; and when you'll restart the device you'll have the same os similar size's desktop of one Note 3 in your SGS3 mini.
So, in resume. I would like to have a 1920x1080 (for example, or smaller I don't know what resolution is correct for my case), from my actual resolution of my laptop that it's 1280x800 pixels.
And for more details:
- Windows 8.1 Pro (x86)
- Resolution 1280x800 (15,4") and 16:10
- Graphic Adapter Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950 (Intel GMA 945 GM)
- Only the original monitor (laptop), not an external monitor
I have a gateway NE56R41u. With that aside, today i played the sims 3 when it has a warning about my graphics card or whatever, so i went to my screen resolution to see if i can fix the problem. Unfortunately, the place where i can choose what my resolution is greyed out, so i cannot change a thing. Heres a picture .....
I currently have a 15" PC with a 3200x1800 resolution. Using Windows 8.1. I have the scaling to highest.
My 2nd external monitor is 1920 x 1200.
I am trying to extend my desktop to the 2nd monitor but is there a way to use different scaling for both the PC and monitor?
I have unchecked "use scaling for all my displays" but no matter what, I still can't change the scaling on the external display. It uses the scaling settings of my PC (scaling set to highest because of 3200x1800 resolution) and because of that, the monitor scaling shows everything large.
I recently updated to Windows 8.1 (64-bit), and I immediately noticed that my resolution had taken a strange turn. Everything except the taskbar seems to be a lower resolution than before. This suspicion was only strengthened when I launched a game that I had running in 1440x900 windowed, and it didn't fit properly on the screen. I checked my display settings and used printscreen to check the resolution and both said 1920x1080, but when I used Puush to take a desktop screenshot, it came out as 1536x864, whereas before installing 8.1, desktop screenshots came out as 1920x1080. I tried changing the resolution and changing it back, but I'm still having the issue.
I installed 8 because when I first tried it I loved it, and realized that it was WAAAY faster than 7 in my usual routines and boot/shutdown times. I also like the new start menu, it's very refreshing and user-friendly (although I admit, in some aspects, it can actually be inconvenient). But anyway, on with the problem...
After a fresh install of 8, on my ASUS N53Jq, I tried to do the thing I do the most on my PC at the moment: game recordings on my HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition.
Everything, technically, went fine and the recordings were as good as they were when recorded with 7...however, due to these recordings I did, I noticed that now my PC only has two resolution settings: 1366 x 768 and 1024 x 768. And yes, I have the latest driver for my GPU...
Before I had many settings, including 1280 x 720 which is very useful for me to output into my PVR (so I can actually get a 60fps video...). I had to go to my nvidia control panel and add 720p as a custom resolution setting, which worked I guess but this is scaring me a little now...
Is this normal? Does 8 only set highest and lowest resolution? I'm betting it doesn't, and it's my PC thats the problem.
Windows 8 64bit, 6gb RAM, Graphics card Gainward GTX460 In the last week boot up has been very slow and the screen resolution is lower than recommended (1920x1080) at 1024x768 . Then the mouse smears across the desktop until I change the resolution to the recommended 1920x1080. Is the problem in Windows 8 or the graphics card. How can I test the graphics card?
I installed Windows 8 Pro on a new PC. I ran into a problem where Windows automatically started at the wrong monitor timing. I temporarily used a TV to get to an advanced startup screen that had a check box for low-resolution. That allowed it to work with my display. I now have a video card that correctly supports my display. The problem is, Windows 8 always boots in low resolution and I have to manually change it after each boot.
The problem is that I don't recall what gave me the screen with the menu. It is not the blue screen with press F1 - F9. This was a standard dialog box with check boxes and a note on the side saying any changes would be permanent. But any method that allows it to permanently boot to a normal screen.
Resolution of my monitors 1280, but I can't open apps because "resolution is less than 1024" (error message). If I update video driver Windows does not work, being necessary to restore to a previous state.
Both primary and secondary displays are 1080p, native. Windows says both are running at 1920x1080, but I can visually see the secondary display is running a lower resolution. The GPU is GeForce GTX 560M, with the latest drivers. I didn't have this issue with Windows 7.
I recently bought a Razer Blade 14 laptop and have been enjoying it so far.
However, after a few days, the resolution of the screen jumps down to 640x480 after a few seconds from logging in to windows It has been annoying as I have to change it back to the default 3200x1800 each time. There would then be no problems until the next log in.
I have been installing programs onto my new Blade ...
I got my laptop repaired lately, the problem with it was that the screen was broken... before I put my laptop in for repair I had it connected to a external monitor so I could continue using my computer
As the title suggests on receiving my fixed computer, my laptop is running a lower resolution than supposed to. It is displaying 1366x 768 with the error message "Your resolution is lower than 1280 x 960. Some items might not fit on your screen" with no choice to increase said resolution.
This was the resolution I previously had while my laptop monitor was working... I assume this is to do with the external monitor I had it set up on but I no longer have that monitor.
Is there a way to somehow reset my graphics to recognize the correct resolution?
I want to prevent apps (typically old games) from lowering the desktop resolution. I often change to another app to check out something, and in this case the desktop also runs in the silly low resolution. Plus the window sizes and the icon locations are permanently changed.
I have 5 screens, 3 screens connected to a display card, and 2 on motherboard.
When i was with windows 7, no problem at all for the past 2 years. Once upgraded to Windows 8.1, windows DOES recognise all 5 screens, however, it will revert back to a single screen and 800 x 600 resolution.
I will have to enable and reposition all screens again until the next restart.
My netbook(Samsung NC110 with 1024*600 Screen Resolution and Intel GMA 3150) is running Windows 8.1 x64 now. I want to use all features of Windows 8, so i want to set Custom resoltion like 1366*768. I was trying to change some keys in the regedit, but the picture was very bad, cause my screen is 16:9, and 1024*768 or 1152*864 resolutions is 4:3. I want to get some utility to set Custom Resolutions, that bigger that real resolution of my display.
I just purchased a acer V7-482PG-6662 ( Acer | Aspire V7 | V7-482PG-6662 | Overview ) and it comes with a 1080p display but the issue is that it wont go above 1366 x 768. This is right out of the box, i cant change to a higher resolution and all the drivers have been updated.
The Nvidia card works fine as it kicks in during gaming but even in games I cannot select a higher resoloution than 1366 x 768.
I even did a fresh install of windows 8 and windows 7 same issue. Device manager indicates "generic pnp display" under the monitor heading.
Others who have bought the laptop have not experienced this issue and their display is at 1080p.
EDIT: Tried a linux live usb and same issue, the resolution is only 1366 x 768, is this a hardware defect?
I have a game (ATCSimulator 2) that is not written for widescreen. The game tells me that in order to work in the mode I want the display must be set to a standard 4:3 setting. It gives the options of 1280x800, 1440x900 or 1680x1050. I tried to do this, but apparently my video card does not support any standard resolutions. I thought it might just show the screen stretched, but the game will not even go into the mode I want to use.
How I can change the resolution to display properly or possibly a workaround for this?
My video adapter is Intel HD Graphics 4000 Intel driver version 10.18.10.3277 15.6" display Max Resolution 1366x768 Windows 8.1
My new Acer laptop has very disappointing screen and video quality. The screen resolution is maxed-out at 1366 x 768 with Intel HD Graphics 4000. Those specs should be just fine for great visuals. My old desktop didn't come close to that but I could watch Youtube videos very well with no pixeling of image. Acer tech support said "new graphics driver download" and I did that , to no avail. Setting adjustments etc.? My wife's 3 year old Acer has better screen quality than my new one.
I used to connect my Asus X72JR on my Flatscreen TV at 1080p, it always had a crispy sharp image.
After replacing my harddrive and reinstalling Windows 7 (64x) the image wasn't displayed in full size of my TV anymore but smaller (black edges around image) When i set my TV to full screensize everything gets blurry (it just spreads the image)
I updated to the latest graphic driver and looked at the screens resolution which was still set at 1920x1080 (recommended), everything was correct but the screen is either blurry or displayed smaller than the tv screen.
My Asus has a Radeon Mobility HD5470 driver
I have a second laptop, when I connect this to the TV is has a sharp image again even though the settings are exactly the same.
I'm trying to use an external Samsung TV/monitor (model LN-T2642H) through HDMI. The native resolution of the monitor/TV is 1360X768, which is also the native resolution of ASUS T100.
If I try to use the monitor/TV as the only display, the device selected is Generic PnP Monitor and the native resolution of 1360X768 is not available for selection. Intel HD Graphics Control Panel only shows 1280X720 (selected) and 1920X1080 (too high for my monitor).
Is there a way to set up the 1360X768 resolution with the existing driver (up to date)? Is there another driver that I can download and that will allow this resolution? Can I use a different version of the Generic PnP Monitor that allows 1360X768 resolution?
With the only resolution available i.e., 1280X720 the quality is bad.
I'm running Vista 64 and tried to upgrade to win 8. It went well enough, but my screen resolution became very poor. I have AMD Radeon X1250 graphics and can't find a driver that will work on Win 8, so I reverted to Vista. But I really want to run Win 8.
The other day my son stepped on my laptop and messed up the screen. Now when it starts up I get red lines going across the screen, but can still see the bios info and the windows logo and spinning dots when Windows loads just fine, however when Windows starts I just have a blank screen. Obviously the screen was damaged, but it seems to display the lower resolution okay. I just can't lower the resolution in Windows since I can't see what I'm doing. Plugging in an external monitor doesn't work, there's no output there. Is there way to change the resolution settings if I take it the hdd and plug it into another computer as an external drive? The laptop is an Intel cpu and my other machine is an AMD cpu, so I don't think just trying to boot the laptop hard drive in the desktop would work.
I upgraded Toshiba Satellite A100-998 with XP Media Centre to Windows 8 Pro. Before upgrade the screen resolution was 1280x800 on a NVIDIA GeForce Go7300 graphics adapter.
Windows 8 pro upgrade has installed only the Standard Microsoft Graphics Adapter of 1028x600. I have searched registry for Display1_DownScalingSupported key but it does not exist.
I have attempted to find another driver on the NVIDIA and Toshiba web support but I am unsure what would be the right one. The laptop clearly can support the higher resolution, how to resolve the issue.
