Windows 7: Resolution Question

Resolution Question

I have a 1920x1080 resolution and I was wondering if I could lower it to a lower setting but get a clear screen. The next setting is 1366x768 and I chose that but everything is not crystal clear or sharp. I have a Nvidia GT 130m graphics card I know that card should have no problem displaying a 1366x768 resolution clearly.

As stated in a previous thread. LCDs have a fixed pixel grid, meaning they only support one resolution. Native resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You cannot change the native resolution of a display. It's simply the way it is. The panel has a certain number of pixels that make up the native resolution. The only way to change the native resolution would be to PHYSICALLY remove the pixels from the display.

But not clearly or sharp as per the requirement of the OP. You can use 1:1 pixel mapping which will surround the image with black bars and not use the full screen.
