    Monitor Resolution occasionally too low


    Hi,


    I have been having an occasional Issue with my second monitor that the resolution sets itself to 1280x1024 (cannot be increased effectively, even through Nvidia control panel) randomly after reboots or completely unplugging the PC for whatever reason, even though the monitor is capable of 1680x1050 (an older VGA monitor, my primary uses HDMI at 1920x1080 without any issue whatsoever).

    If this happens my only fix is to execute "shutdown /g" (/r never makes any difference) however this only works occasionally. If it does fix the issue it usually stays fixed for a considerable length of time, however the issue eventually pops up again and can sometimes take 15+ reboots before the issue finally fixes itself.


    Has anyone got any ideas what I can do to permanently solve this issue, no driver update or setting appears to make any difference whatsoever.


    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Second monitor screen resolution problem

    Hi,

    For us to properly isolate the issue with your second monitor screen resolution, we would like to know the following:


    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue (e.g., updates, software installation)?

    • When did the issue first begin?

    • To make sure that we have not missed on anything, what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you try resetting your monitor settings, and check if the issue still persists. You may refer to your monitor on how to reset it.

    We look forward to your response.

    Monitor resolution

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your question in Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues with screen resolution. I will try to help you in fixing the issue.

    To help you suggest more steps to resolve the issue, I would appreciate if you could answer the following questions:



    What exactly happens when you try to change the screen resolution? Do you get any error message?



    The recommended resolution on windows 10 is 1920 x 1080. Change the resolution to 1920 x 1080 and check.

    The reason why your display was stretched sideways is because the resolution was in-corrected.



    Here are the steps to change the screen resolution:

    • Right Click the Desktop and select
      Screen Resolution.
    • Click the Make text and other items larger or smaller link.
    • In the Change only the text size section click the
      drop down menu
      to select the items you want to change.
    Hope the information was helpful

    Monitor Resolution occasionally too low

    W10 new build low resolution.


    Got a new build PC with W10, screen resolution too low despite set to 1080p. My previous Windows 7 machine displays fine on same monitor. Tried all available settings options in W10 and Nvidia panel, also checked monitor display settings and another HDMI cable. Managed to get screen sized properly, but text, images, etc, are a pixelated low res. I've searched this issue online, but none of the suggestions have helped. I don't want to risk buying new monitor (existing one is 6 years old) in case issue recurs. I'm gutted as this is a brand new build, so any help would be appreciated.Cheers.
