  3. Media aspect ratio changes on TV

    Whenever I connect my laptop to my TV the aspect ratio is fine, but when I watch any media (YouTube, Netflix, etc.) in full screen the aspect ratio changes. It looks like it changes from 4096 × 2160 to 3840 × 2160.

    My laptop is a X510UAR Signature Edition and the resolution is 1080 × 1920.

    My TV is a [LG] web is TV UH6030 and the resolution is 3840 × 2160.

    I choose the 4096 × 2160 resolution and 300% scale options so the picture can fit on my TV.

    Also, only the media itself changes aspect ratio. Any overlays stay where they should be.

    How do I change the aspect ratio of my monitor?

    I have been trying to change the aspect ratio of my monitor from its default 4:3 to 16:9.
    The aspect ratio was fine until the VGA outlet in my PC stopped working, and moving it to the other VGA outlet seems to have reset the aspect ratio to 4:3.

    Display Settings only lets me select a resolution of 800x600, 1024x768, or 1280x1024, all of which are 4:3. I have been Googling 'how to change aspect ratio', but all of the solution I am finding are telling me to go to 'advanced display options'—which
    doesn't seem to exist.

    I have also tried to change the resolution with the options of my monitor itself, but the only aspect ratio options are 'stretch to fit' or 'stretch to fill'.

    How do I change the aspect ratio?
