    Resolution Auto Changing.. Help..


    Hello..

    I Run Windows 7 as my host OS on my Laptop for the past 2 years.. And about a week ago, i realized that my resolution changed from 1366x 768 px to 1156x 864 px. Because of this, my Virtualbox also can not run in Full Screen mode on 1366 x 568px. Any help?

    Additional Details: My Maximum resolution now is 1366x 768 Pixels.

    Thank You

    Hi Shon,

    This looks familiar (the same problem from a while back right?)

    If you have an older driver:
    Look for newer drivers on the intel's site: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/
    You need to know the full name of your graphics card/chipset.

    Can you see and post your resolution from these windows (here example 1024x768):

    There should be a solution for that problem.

    I hope you use the same monitor from when it was 1366x768.

    Ok,

    There are some things you can check:

    * Check for updated drivers. (you have a Intel graphics right?)
    -newer drivers may fix some problems.

    * Is there a 1366x768 or higher on the list?
    -if not 1156x 864 is maximum.

    * Have you changed the monitor?
    -different monitor gives different max resolution.

    Have a look in your Device Manager (here's example):
    Click image for larger version
    Look for that (whatever your card is named) on Intel's drivers site and update it manually (download a zip) or automatically (download a exe)
    Reboot and check again. (If you changed the monitor then drivers are ok)

    Good luck

    *1 Yes I Have Intel Gfx Installed on.. i checked for updates.. but it has all updated drivers..

    I have a laptop too but I see the one resolution in top of the list marked as recommended (this is native for the LCD).

    Is there a resolution marked as recommended? The 1152x864 isn't marked as recommended above. So I also think it's not the highest.
    As you said, there should be a 1366x768 on the list and that's missing now: have to say I've never encountered this before.

    There were some issues like this after connecting an external TV or monitor in the VGA / DVI / HDMI ports (whatever is available on the machine) and the screen changed automatically to a lower res. After plugging the monitor out, the resolution didn't changed back (refresh problem). If you had a monitor / TV connected before, try connecting it back and look at the resolutions and then plug it out and look again if the list is refreshed. Something like this never happened to me or on my machine, but my brother encountered it once.

    Some examples about the recommended resolution on LCD's:

    On an older LCD monitor with maximum 1024x768 I get this:

    Important:
    Is there a Intel Graphics icon in tray? (see screenshot below) or Control Panel:
    Click image for larger version

    Look there for graphics settings and resolutions.

    Hope you find a solution and maybe someone else has some ideas but that's all I can say on the matter.


    Good luck

    Fine I downloaded a latest driver from the Download Center.. It installed fine.. later, after installation, i had to reboot.. so i went ahead and the desktop showed up a vertically stretched Screen.. i got the Maximum resolution back.. 1366x768.. but even that resolution is stretched... Any Solution?

    Waiting for a Positive Reply..

    Thank You

    open regedit and edit, find

    Display1_DownScalingSupported

    modify the value to 0 from 1

    press F3 and check all values for this in the registry are returned to 0

    After a restart - your normal display settings should have returned

    Yes, good point fafhrd. Didn't knew it.

    Search with F3 in regedit. Here I got a 0 by default, that has to be it.
    There are 4 or 5 entries found (repeat pressing F3) and here they have all value 0.

    Normally there has to be a Intel option in tray icon (down in right corner) or
    ctrl+alt+f11 toggle keys.
