  2. Display Resolution for two monitor have different settings

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The display resolution depends on the monitors that you have plugged into your computer. The display resolution modes will vary with each display based on the video card device, monitor size, video driver, and monitor driver.
    By default, Windows chooses the best display settings for your PC based on your monitor, so it is recommended to set the screen resolution of the display to the (Recommended) native resolution to get the best display on your monitor.

    To have better clarity on the issue, let us know the model numbers of your monitors, so that we can provide you the exact display resolution which is recommended to your monitors.

    Meanwhile, try the below methods and see if this helps.

    Changing the Display Resolution from Settings.

    Step 1: Right Click on an empty space on the desktop and click on
    Display Settings.

    Step 2: In the
    Display Settings window, scroll down and click on 'Advanced display settings' option under
    Multiple displays.

    Step 3: Then, click on
    Display adapter properties for Display 1, Display 2, or
    Display 3; whichever monitor you want to change the resolution for.

    Step 4: Once the Display properties pops-up, click on 'List All Modes' option.

    Step 5: Select a display mode that you want for the selected display and click on
    OK.

    Step 6: Then, click on
    Apply and OK for the changes to take effect.

    If these steps don't work, try reinstalling the driver by opening
    Device Manager, right-click on the monitor drivers, and select
    Uninstall. Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the drivers.

    Hope it helps.

    how to set resolution on multiple monitor display

    Can not use two monitors. Error message: "The display settings could not be saved. Please try a different combination of display settings"

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    • Since when are you facing this issue with the monitors?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • What happens when you try to duplicate the monitors?

    I suggest you to try changing the display ports of the monitors and check if the second monitor is getting detected.



    I suggest you to follow the methods mentioned below and check if that helps.

    Method 1: Try rolling back the driver.

    To roll back the driver to previous build follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press and hold the Windows + X key on the keyboard.
    2. Select Device manager.
    3. In Device manager, expand Display adaptor.
    4. Right click on NVIDIA
      Drivers and select Properties.
    5. Navigate to the Driver tab and click on Roll Back Driver.
    6. Restart the computer.

    Method 2: Change the screen resolution.

    1. Go to Settings>System>Display.
    2. Under Resolution, set the resolution as 1024 x 768.
    3. Set the same resolution on the other monitor.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
