    Incorrect Resolution on Secondary Display


    Both primary and secondary displays are 1080p, native. Windows says both are running at 1920x1080, but I can visually see the secondary display is running a lower resolution. The GPU is GeForce GTX 560M, with the latest drivers. I didn't have this issue with Windows 7.

    Any ideas?

    *bump*

    I had the pre-release installed when I made this thread. I removed the pre-release, and installed Windows 8, which did not have this issue. After updating Windows 8 to the 8.1 official update, I have this issue again.

    Help?

Good afternoon, I'm running a dual display setup with a 19" widescreen and a 17" 4:3, and have recently upgraded to Windows 8. Prior to upgrading, my 17" display was set at 1280x1024, and the 19" at 1440x900. After upgrading, the 19" has defaulted to a "native" 1024x768 (which is obviously...
