Windows 7: Can't select 1366x768 resolution

Can't select 1366x768 resolution

Hi. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on my Lenovo Z575, which has a screen resolution of 1366x768. Unfortunately, Windows does not have the option to select this. The best I can get is 1280 x 768, but it looks awful. I know I can get this to work on this laptop because I just bought it second hand and the resolution was fine until I reinstalled Windows 7 (to get rid of the dual boot). Can anyone help?
Thanks

JustSteph, welcome to the Seven Forums.

I would start with installing the graphics driver which you can get from here,

Also make sure the Aspect ratio is 16:9 and not 16:10 or any other.
