Hello Sujen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can uninstall the newer drivers in "Programs and Features", then install the ones you had before until another new one that comes out that works better for you.

Hope this helps,

i am having this problem. I don't know which drivers would change this.. any help with this please. because i need the resolution to change according to the game's resolution to force refresh rates higher. It is only recognizing the desktop resolution in game (1680x1020) but looks like lets say 1024x768.
