Cannot get 1920 x 1200 display

Hi

Display
NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 [Display adapter]
Philips PHL 243V5 [Monitor] (23.4"vis, s/n ZV01538001241, September 2015)

I have been away for several months and when I fired up this PC I saw that the resolution had changed and not all the screen was covered, which it was before I left.

The PC had been used very occasionally while I was away and the user has no knowledge of what went on re updates etc.

The default resolution for the Philips PHL 243V5 monitor is 1920 x 1200 but in Display Options, the max shown, and current selection is 1920 x 1080 and that has (recommended) beside it.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the NVidia driver using the option to remove installed drivers but the result is the same.

I would appreciate any advice on how to fix this issue.

Thanks

Daniel

Hi

I have attached a picture showing the result, the picture is cropped as close as possible to the
screen extremities showing the correct size.

I have been doing some more googling and perhaps the correct resolution is 1920 x 1080 but that is not what I am getting.

Cheers

Daniel

Hi Daniell,

Looks like MS has been playing around - issuing wrong drivers lots of reports on W10 about it.

in your case you may need to roll back the MONITORS driver as well as Nvidea, could have its own seperate driver entry in device manager. > update > Roll back

Hi

After talking to my family again one of them admitted to having mucked about
with the monitor settings so I checked there and found a way to fix the problem.

Cheers

1920 x 1080 vs 1900 x 1200 lcd
I am looking for a new 24" lcd monitor. I never watch DVD or Blu Ray on my computer. Is there any advantages to having the 1920x1080 over the 1900x1200 standard for computing and photography work? I currently use 1900x1200 and have been very satisfied with it so far. Many thanks,
