    Default screen resolution low in win8

    Hi all,

    I am not able to adjust the screen resolution to 990 *1440 on my 17" HP Laptop that has AMD Turion processor. It is showing the for 15" screen only and also fonts and icon are looking big like Win XP and win safe mode size. Please advise.

    Could be a graphics card driver problem. See this thread.

    Hi layer,

    Welcome to our forum. Beyond the basic VGA screen resolutions, the available screen resolutions are a function of the installed graphics device.

    Firstly, you need to check and make sure that you have the very latest version of these drivers installed.

    Hey, Layer-24. Your video card might not support that res.
