    Resolution


    Hello,

    I've recently installed Windows 8 on my computer with succes. The only thing that's not working right is the resolution. My computer is connected with an HDMI cable to my Panasonic TX-L32C10P TV. The graphic card i'm using is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 610.

    The resolution is or too big, or too small, or its flickering and the only thing i want is that is not as big as an PC for older people and that the Windows 8 Apps work.

    Can someone help me with this? For example with Teamviewer?

    Thx!

    What does Device Manager show for your video adapter? You may need to update its driver. Possibly its firmware too. Did you run the Windows 8 upgrade assistant? Did it indicate that you might have a video/resolution problem?

    What do you mean by Device manager? When i go to the Nvidia website and let it search for drivers, it says i've already got the most recent one. Where can I find the Windows 8 upgrade assistant?

    Thanks

    You are very welcome. Check out device manager in Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers > Device Manager (link/tab). So, you didn't update your NVIDIA driver, right?

    Still wondering: "Did you run the Windows 8 upgrade assistant? Did it indicate that you might have a video/resolution problem?"

    The device manager just says its Nvidia Geforce GT610 and the Windows 8 Upgrade assistant only said something about winrar and about a DVD-Burning program.
