    Cannot change Screen Resolution :(


    I just changed my laptop's OS to Windows 8 but somehow, i can't change my screen resolution the way it was before. here's a screenshot: http://oi39.tinypic.com/33kd2xc.jpg

    and when i go to desktop, right-click then screen resolution, there's only 1 option available.
    here's how it looks like: http://i40.tinypic.com/fnzkvr.jpg

    and as you can see, the "Resolution" option won't show any other options aside from 1024x768.

    so what do you think is the problem? pls help and thank you in advance

    Hi I was wandering if you could tell me the following Info
    • Your Computers Make
    • Avaliable Ram
    • Avaliable Disk Space
    • Your Computers Model
    • Screen Size
    • Your OS (Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 RT, Windows 8 RT Pro)


    And then I would be happy to help.
    Thanks

    This is because your using the generic windows 8 driver, according to you 2nd pic. Once you change the OS you need to install all the drivers for it...eg graphics driver, sound driver, ethernet driver, wireless adapter driver. You get those from you laptop's website and as Sammystech pointed out we need your system specs in order to get you going in the right direction.
