I recently broke my screen on my G51JX Asus laptop with a native resolution of 1920x1080.

After getting it fixed (no warranty so asus would prolly charge me a buck load for it) I have the screen working again, but the native resolution is at 1366 x 768. After setting a custom resolution of 1920x1080 again, everything gets blurry, even with cleartype on.

I know that setting custom resolutions could initiate problems, but is there a way to fix this blurryness? Or should I contact the repair depot for this issue to get my HD screen resolution?

Sounds like you either received a faulty monitor panel or simply the wrong specification.

Verify the model number and that it can actually handle 1920x1080.

If they have installed a different LCD Panel, with a low native resolution than the original, then the only thing you can do is contact again the repair service and tell them your problem.

But it's really strange that they installed a different screen, that's because different screen resolutions on laptops usually have also different connectors, but, can happen.

Be sure to check that you have the video drivers installed correctly, that's may cause the problem.

Well asus didnt install it, Considering I knew I didnt have any warranty, I didnt want asus to repair it, because not only the costs would be dramaticly high, it would also mean I would lose my laptop for quite some time. This repair depot repaired it within 1 hour, but alas I should have known that things can look too good to be true. I also checked my drivers and etc, everything is in order, I can play games as I usually would on hd resolution, but in Windows everything looks blurry (quite annoying :P) I will contact the depot nontheless. I thank you very much for giving me a timely answer! – Peorth Jan 24 '13 at 16:58
@Peorth you wanted a quick and cheap repair, and you got a quick and cheap repair. Now you know why it is worth going with the more expensive and longer repair... it gets done right that way. – Bon Gart Jan 24 '13 at 17:03
I understand, i really reccomend you to contact again this repair depot and tell them your problem. Probably, as William said, they gave to you a faulty or wrong specification LCD Panel, or really BAD quality. – Fr0z3n Jan 24 '13 at 17:03
Yeah :P lesson learned for this one. slaps myself – Peorth Jan 24 '13 at 17:12
