    1920x1080 resolution on a 15.6" screen too small

    This is my first post in this forum, please I need some help regarding this issue.
    I have Lenovo G50-45 15.6" laptop which has a native resolution set to 1920x768 which makes everything too congested.
    I too have another 15.6" laptop which has a 1366x768 native resolution and this resolution is perfectly set, not too small not too big.
    Initially my Lenovo G50-45 was set at 1366x768 only, but then I gave my laptop for repair and after that it changed to 1920x1080.
    Is there anyway I can restore it back to the previous set resolution of 1366x768?
