  1. Screen resolution auto change issue

    so my screen seems to go from 3840 2160 (4k resolution) to 640480 (sometimes it does that twice ) then it sometimes reverts back to the 3840 resolution . it tends to do this hourly.

    ive tried uninstalling video drivers, restarting,powerting off, ensuring the boot mode thing was off, ensured no programs were in compatability mode but to no avail. any other ideas?

    I realize the inconvenience caused to you regarding resolution of computer. I will certainly assist you.

    Please answer the below question to assist you better.

    What is the make and model of the computer?

    It is very important to have the correct screen resolution settings in your Windows PC as it facilitates better display of content and the clarity of images. Higher is the resolution, sharper are the images and contents on your PC

    I suggest you to check the resolution of your screen and make changes according to your requirements. To change screen resolution follow the steps below

    • Go to your Desktop,right-click your mouse and go to Display Settings.
    • A panel will open. Here you can adjust the size of text, apps, and other items and also change the orientation. To change the resolution settings, scroll down this window and click on Advanced Display Settings
    1366 X 768 is the recommended screen resolution

    • You can change it according to your requirements.
    NOTE: Lower is the resolution, larger is the content displayed on your screen. From the available options in the drop-down menu, select the one you want and click Apply

    • If it is not the optimal setting for your system, you will see an Optimal Resolution Notification
    You may ignore the notification and confirm your Screen Resolution changes by clicking on
