    Windows 8.1 1024x768 resolution problems


    I recently upgraded from a laptop that ran normal windows 8 to a desktop that is using windows 8.1 and my old laptop used to run a resolution of 1024x768 and everything looked perfect, but now that I've upgraded my new computer is only allowing me to use the resolutions 1280x720 and 1920x1080(this is the native) and there is no in between, I am using the same screen and cables i used on my laptop. my problem is that if i run 1280x720 it cannot handle all the apps of windows 8.1 but if i run 1920x1080 everything is too small and it is hard to read even if I magnify the screen. To be honest i don't think i am supposed to be using a flat screen tv for a monitor, but it worked perfect for my laptop. How can i get back to the resolution i used to run on my laptop?

    Go to Device Manager. Under display devices/monitor, right click device and select Update Driver. Worked for me when I upgraded to Windows 8.1 !

    Go to display adapters.
    Right click.
    Update Driver Software.

    Hope this clears it up,

    You should download and install the Graphic drivers for your laptop.

    What's your laptop's Brand and model number ? I can help source the drivers for you.

I found a handy little registry hack which is good for older laptop users/mobile devices which have a resolution for 1024x600. I'm not sure if it will work and I'm not sure if it will cause your computer to explode. Just thought I'd share.
