Windows 7: I can't change my resolution.

I can't change my resolution.

So recently my computer was fixed after a little accident.
Then I noticed that my resolution was changed into 1400x1050.
It was once 1366x768 and I'm really uncomfortable with this resolution.
I want this to be really fixed as soon as possible.
I may also need a driver to play games like Minecraft,Team Fortress 2.

Here are my specs:

OS:Windows 7 Professional 32-bit SP1
CPU:AMD A6-5400K Trinity 32nm Technology
RAM:4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
Mother Board:Emaxx Technology.Ltd EMX-A55FM2HD-iCafe (P0)
Graphics:Standard Monitor (1400x1050@1Hz)

From what I can see from your motherboard description I am assuming you do not have a discrete graphics card but use the onboard graphics - If this is so then the following link should be the drivers you need to return to the Native resolution of the Graphics, It would appear that the system specific drivers were not loaded after the repair and you have been using the generic drivers

Drivers are on the 2nd tab on page- 1st Item

You may also want to download and install some or all of the other drivers available which may help the general working of your system

Unfortunately, It broke my computer again but thanks to system restore.
Is there any other options to fix this?

If you have installed all the relevant drivers for your system from the link Provided then it should work correctly (assuming all components are as stated )

But I cannot state with any certainty what needs to be repaired as I do not have access to the PC but if the system was working correctly before the repair and is not afterwards that would suggest that the repair has changed something

The only other option would be to return it to whoever performed the repair to fix the error they caused.

Before the PC broke it actually worked without a graphics card and I can play games to the resolution of
1366x768.Then after like January 2017 which is February 2017 I kicked the CPU accidentally and it shut down.After it broke I tried to fix it.I was messing around then I found my old graphics card which the guy said it was broken and I tried it and attached to the motherboard.After that in 2 weeks we went somewhere to fix it.After that this happened.

I have options:

1.)Should I remove the graphics card and attach the video cable to the one in the CPU(Because its attached to the VGA of my broken graphics card)

2.)Should I find another method rather than 1.

3.)Should I find a alternate driver which is different from the one you suggested me to use?

The drivers I linked to were for the onboard video so will not work with the add-on card, so you need to either source new drivers for the Add-on card or connect to the on board graphics after removing the broken card.

I would also suggest that you remove all existing Video Drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 17.0.6.5 and re-install the ones I linked to after the removal of the add-on card and connection to the on-board VGA

The 1366 x 768 is a standard default resolution for an onboard card whereas 1400x1050 looks like a higher resolution only available on the external card and only when working correctly with correct drivers

Hi,

Not quite, GPUs have a max supported resolution, the value of width and height does not matter as long as it meets the max supported resolution.

The fitting of Panel aspects and sizes into the resolution limits of graphics output is not as simple as that stated

In this case The two are both standard 4:3 aspect ratio Native resolutions for monitor panels, they may not be the actual Native resolution but this is highly likely that the 1366x768 is. The aspect ratio is as important as the resolution as the aspect ratio of the individual pixel elements is not capable of variation.

If you change the aspect ratio from the designed Aspect ratio then you will produce a distorted image. A similar quality degradation issue is seen when anything other than the native resolution of the panel is used as this will require dithering or pixel multiplication to achieve

The best picture quality achievable is achieved by setting the GPU output to the same Aspect ratio and native resolution as the Panel in use, Other settings may well be possible but will always degrade the final image produced

There are also of course input/output devices that use other than square pixels which must also be taken into account when setting up a monitor
