Windows 7: Screen Resolution Problem

16 Apr 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional X64
Screen Resolution Problem

My monitor supports 2560 X 1080 and that's what I have most of the time.

Lately, if monitor goes to standby, upon coming out of it, the resolution will change to 420 X 240 ( or similar), and I have to close all browsers and go to desktop >Screen Res and change it back.

I went to Dev Mgr and clicked update driver, but said I had the latest one, which turned out to be incorrect after I went to the Intel site and they said I needed a new driver.

I installed it, but still have the same problem - intermittently.

Any advice appreciated.

You have the correct monitor driver installed?

I've had this monitor for 6 months, so yes, the correct driver was installed.

This problem only started happening about a week ago.

Prior to you reply, I checked Dev Mgr and it said I had the latest, but I have been given incorrect info from them before and I went to the LG site and an update (March,2015) was available.

I thought this update should have been included with Microsoft Updates.

I downloaded and will wait to see if that corrects the problem.

Thanks for reply.
