    All displays have a definitive range of resolutions it can display, you'll get a warning when you try over/under those limits. Check your manual what those limits are.

Awful Screen Resolution
In windows 7 my best screen res is 1280x800 which is great, however on windows 8 I only get two options 800x600, or 1024x768 which looks terrible, does anybody know why this is, and is it just because its and early build of windows or are Microsoft just being stupid.

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?
