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

Graphic Cards :: How To Change Scaling Resolution On Extended Monitor

Dec 23, 2013

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.

Graphic Cards :: Intel GMA 3150 - Custom Screen Resolution

Jan 23, 2014

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 want to get some utility to set Custom Resolutions, that bigger that real resolution of my display.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 - Screen Resolution / Every Item Becomes Bigger Than Normal

Mar 19, 2014

I'm using my laptop MSI GE60-2OE. When I first boot into the system, everything looks fine

But after using for a while, the display becomes odd. Every item becomes bigger than normal and the entire screen seems bigger than the screen size

Even worse, in the desktop mode, the taskbar change to strange state and the menu start is disabled

This problem happens when I set the screen resolution at 1920*1080. Things change back to normal when I reduce the resolution to 1600*900.

Graphic Cards :: Poor Screen Resolution And Video On New Acer Laptop

Mar 30, 2013

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.

Graphic Cards :: Changing Screen Resolution Not From Desktop Or Control Panel

Jun 3, 2013

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.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 - Odd Resolution Discrepancy

Feb 2, 2014

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.

Graphic Cards :: Can GPU Not Handle 4k Resolution On YouTube?

I tried watching a YouTube video at 1440p and 2160p. Every time I try either of those qualities, flash player crashes.

Can my gpu just not handle that high resolution?

I've never had any problems with video until I've tried to stream 4k quality. I can do 1080p fine. All my specs are on my profile.

Graphic Cards :: GPU Only Has 2 Resolution Settings After Installing 8

Jun 21, 2013

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.

Graphic Cards :: Permanently Get Rid Of Low Resolution Startup

Aug 23, 2013

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.

I bought a new laptop with a 13" but HIGH (3800x1800) resolution screen.

Windows 8.1 has a display feature where ALL objects can be scaled larger to deal with the fine resolution.

However, I have one program on the desktop that sometimes flips this off and "goes native".

Graphic Cards :: Resolution Too Small With No Option To Upscale

Dec 25, 2013

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?

Graphic Cards :: How To Force Desktop Resolution Globally

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 Not Remembering Resolution And Additional Screens

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.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8 Stuck In Low Resolution New Laptop (Generic Pnp)

Aug 30, 2013

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?

Graphic Cards :: Standard Resolution On Widescreen Monitor - Windows 8.1

Sep 15, 2014

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
15.6" display
Max Resolution 1366x768
Windows 8.1

Graphic Cards :: Asus X72JR - Resolution Set To 1080p On TV But Displayed Too Small?

Mar 23, 2014

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.

Graphic Cards :: Low Resolution On External TV / Monitor (ASUS T100 Windows 8.1)

May 15, 2014

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.
