    Messed up resolution

    My computer updated to 8.1 and now my resolution is all messed up. I have only 2 options. 1920x1080 and 1280x720. I previously had it at 1360x768 but now that isn't an option. How can I fix this?

    Install the AMD or Nvidia driver package and go to the settings and you should see all the video resolutions that are available.

    win 8

    I have a similar issue, after an update the monitor will only display as 4:3 ratio and the native ratio 1680x1050 is not showing as available. Have updated monitor and gfx card drivers.

    It seems windows will only use its basic display driver though.

    If windows only uses it basic driver, surely its the graphics card software corrupted or missing? I had a case last year where something was wrong, I couldn't figure it out. So I uninstalled the drivers and rebooted. Win opened up in VGA and then went off to find the correct driver and installed it. It was on my previous pc which was by pc standards, an old one! It messed up my desktop but, hey, small price to pay.
