Windows resolution has changed(problem with driver)

Hi there,this morning ,when I turned computer on,I noticed that the resolution had changed.

I remember,I made a small change to my video controller through Device Manager, before turning the computer off. I checked for hardware changes but then I quickly canceled the process and continued working.I think,I made a change and the system did not apply the change untill it got rebooted,thats's why I did not notice anything before today. Any help?

The problem is simple but a bit harder to fix...
The display feels like it has been zoomed in or something,display icons got a bit larger,fonts- a bit harder to read and so on. I'm sure solution is -downloading the right driver ,because I've had the same problems a few months ago and fixed it that way,but this time I can't find the right driver
