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.

Scale resolution to higher than the 1366x768 native
Hi, I've been searching since a very long time, to see if such a solution existed under Windows; My laptop native resolution is 1366x768, but I would be interested in putting it above that (Maybe 1920x1080. In VMware, with the "Stretched" option, 1920x1080 is still readable). So far, the only...

New laptop, resolution limited to 1366x768. Any way to increase this?
So the laptop in question is a 15,9" ASUS K53SV (I think, not 100% on the exact numbers/lettering) with an i7 2630, with integrated graphics chip AND a Geforce 540m. I suspect that the reason why I cannot increase my desktop resolution further is because that integrated chip insists on running...
