What Causes Screen Resolution Problems?
The screen resolution is basically how Windows controls how large / small the icons & other graphical elements of your system are. Although the resolution of your system is highly important, for the likes of games & other applications, it’s continually causing a large number if problems thanks to the way in which your PC will be either unable to correctly read the hardware settings that it requires to run, as well as any potential software issues inside the Windows system itself.
These are the typical causes of the screen resolution problems on your PC:
Windows will have problems with its software / graphics engines
Your system will have issues with its graphics drivers
How To Resolve Screen Resolution Issues
The main way to solve these problems is to first ensure that your PC is able to correctly process the screen resolution that you desire. To do this, it’s recommended you first right-click on the desktop of your system, and then select either “Properties” (Windows XP), or “Screen Resolution” (Windows Vista & 7). After you load up the “applet” which controls the screen resolution of your PC, it’s then recommended that you alter the size of the resolution to the highest numbers possible – ensuring that your system is able to show your display in the most direct way possible.
It’s also recommended that you update the graphics driver that powers the display of your PC. The graphics driver of Windows is basically what Windows uses to connect the graphics output from your software to your PC, and is a hugely important part of any Windows system. Unfortunately, this driver will likely become corrupted a lot of the time, and as a result it’s recommended you either re-install it or update it. This can be done by either using a piece of software (such as “Driver Finder”), or by just clicking onto the Device Manager of your PC and then ensuring that your system is able to read all the files it can on there.
