    Screen resolution doesn't match my monitor


    My screen resolution is at 1920x1080 but my laptop is 15.6 so I believe the resolution should be 1366x768 if I'm correct. The resolution kinda bugs me because some of the display looks really good but the mouse pointer is very small and I'm aware of changing the mouse pointer size in ease of access but is it possible to correct the resolution without the actual size being in the list of resolution sizes?

    The specs are in my profile for the asus laptop I'm talking about.

    :)

  2. 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.

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

  4. Screen resolution doesn't match my monitor

    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
