Display Resolution Problem

Hey guys,

I just updated my windows (windows 7 home premium 64 bit) and now the resolution of my screen went down from 1600*900 to 1152*864. I cant set the resolution higher again, because my windows says that this is the highest possible resolution. All my video drivers are up to date.

I hope that you can help me, the low resolution is very annoying.

Welcome to SF astiiscool

What LCD/CRT you have? also let us know about your system specs. Try uninstalling the Display Driver and re-installing it and if you can find the driver for your LCD/CRT from the official website of the manufacturer so it can help to solve the issue at some point though Win 7 supports all kinds of display resolutions that a LCD/Monitor's has

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Display Drivers from the control panel?

When you updated your Windows so i think it also updated the display drivers which might be in the optional updates which im not sure about it could be . If you have installed the update for you Display Drivers try to remove it by going to Control Panel/System & Security than click on Windows Update and click on "View update history" located on the left side. There will be an option to click "Installed Updates" after where it is written "To remove an update, see Installed Updates." Try to locate the update for display driver and uninstall it.

Also if you can provide the exact model of your Acer Laptop so it would be convenient for us to sort out the issue. Hope it helps.

Do you know what is the model of you Display Driver? Nvidia or ATI? coz i cannot find the exact model no. in the list of Acer website. Also go to this link CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting and download CPU-Z 64-bit edition and run it and upload the picture of Graphics Tab or write the information here from the Graphics tab
