Hello i installed some updates for windows 7 from windows update yesterday and it completely messed up my screen resolution for some reason.

I have always had 1920x1080 working fine without problems, but now it shows 1920x1080 as 1280x1024 at maximum. I have tried applying different resolutions and running windows repair but nothing helps.

I tried restoring to a point before the update happened, but still nothing. – Alekong May 12 '12 at 12:45
  1. Update your monitor driver.
  2. Update your video card driver.

I have the latest drivers for both. – Alekong May 11 '12 at 9:50
Are you using DVI/HDMI or VGA as monitor input? – user127350 Sep 5 '12 at 12:26
