I have a 19 inch widescreen monitor and have set the resolution to 1280 x 760 pixels. This was perfect for me and was fine for ages.
I have switched my computer on today and the resolution has gone all wrong. Everything is now really large on my screen and looks aweful. Is there anyway of resetting back to the default settings. When ever I chose an new resolution setting the screen flickers and the results are terrible.
I have a feeling this problem was caused by a system clean I performed using McAfee Security System and clearing out the registry (just a guess).
System restore - didn't work Uninstall using device manager - didn't work Update graphics card drivers - didn't work Check manual - I have tried all the resolution options and none of them give the desired results
Thanks for your help so far but this one is baffling me????
It it worked for ages OK and doesn't now, then it's likely something is broke (or not working like it should which is as good as). If it's on-board graphics, your "cleaning" could have re-arranged your chipset graphics driver. Check the site of your motherboard manufacturer, download and install your chipset drivers. If it's still the same, plug your screen into someones else's PC to check. If it works somewhere else it's your graphics card/drivers. You say you have checked the drivers so the next thing is try and replace your card for a check - OR - remove the card completely and see how your on-board graphics respond.
