Use PowerStrip to set a custom resolution

I was having the same problem with setting my resolution to 1280x960 @ 72hz.

Just define a new resolution, a custom one, let PowerStrip write that custom resolution into your display drivers... and you pretty much done.

Let me know if that works :)

Win 8 Release candidate 8400


Welcome to SF I had a toough time seeing the jpg's but I wondered if you had tried adjusting the DPI scaling. this adjusts the test/font size at any resolution. GO start>type dpi in search>click make... larger or smaller

Hope this is what you need.

You really dont't need Powerstrip. Just install the correct driver for your graphic card and try what zigzag said.
