    Screen Resolution Not offered

    I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but I can't the screen resolution of 800x600 to choose.

    Only 1024x768 is displayed which is greyed out and I can't select any other resolution. However, I have updated the monitor drivers and I am using 800x600 resolution in windows 7.

    Why would you want to use a lower resolution?

    I wanted because my monitor displays very blurry text on high resolution and causes a lot strain on eyes.

    Hi Sunveer

    If you spend a lot of time in front of your monitor, once it gets blurry or non sharped text, you might have to consider having any affordable new monitor on the first chance. Though you can set it to lower resolution but still it should be able to draw clear lines and texts. Sure, no problem for pictures and movies.

    Your blessed eyes whisper for something better.

How to change screen resolution?
I want to change my resolution to my native screen resolution (1680x1050 60hz) but I don't have that option. instead I have to choose from 800x600, 1024x728, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, and 1920x1440 (at 64hz). How do I change it to my native screen resolution if I don't have the options there?
