Windows 7: Resolution issues after reboot (No updates, No changes)

Resolution issues after reboot (No updates, No changes)

Hello, since i shut down my computer last night I had a weird issue after i booted it back up again.

I currently use my TV as my monitor with a resolution of 3840X2160 (or well was after this weird thing happened)

Because when i started up my computer my MSI logo and Windows 7 boot was normal but when i got to my desktop it showed this :

I have no idea what caused this, updates i install manually and the last thing i do was play a game called cuphead which was working fine and then i shutdown my computer normally.

I couldn't find anything on google regarding my issue so i tried this website for the first time.

(I contacted Microsoft support without great succes, they made me reinstall my graphics drivers update my pc and such but i kind of knew that was not going to help alot hah.
ALSO There is no restore point i can go back to which might be kind of a troublesome thing.

Thanks for reading and I hope i can find a solution.

AVCHD Resolution Issues
I have a lot of 1920x1080 home videos in AVCHD format (.mts) from a Canon HF100. In Windows XP, those files display at 1920x1080. However, in Windows 7 / WMP 12, those files play in 640x360. Ironically, if I right click on the file in the playlist and select properties, it even says the file is...
