    Second monitor has wrong resolution


    for a while, I've been using a Dell E248WFPb (native 1920x1200) connected via VGA on my Dell Optiplex 7040 Micro successfully at it's native resolution. But I just moved the computer to another room, and now that same monitor is a second monitor to a Samsung 2343 (native 2048x1152) connected via DVI to HDMI adapter. The Samsung monitor runs great, native resolution and everything. But the Dell E248WFPb which is now a second monitor, I can't get to go to native resolution. Help!

    :)

    second monitor resolution

    Everything worked great until I moved my computer. Now, I can not change the resolution on my second monitor. I am using

    Windows 10. The resolution bar, only on monitor #2, is greyed out. I tried switching the monitors but either one is stilled greyed out when used as #2. Monitor #1's resolution can be changed , no problem.

    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
