Screen Resolution

Posted 09 May 2012 - 05:28 AM

I just installed Windows on my brand new hard drive, as I've been using Linux for way too long, and was considering suicide.
Now my screen resolution is fucked up hardcore. It's set as 1024 x 768, and everything is.. huge, and stretched. But when I lower it to 800 x 600, it's even worse. Is there any way I can fix this shit? Or am I stuck with a fucking ridiculous resolution?

All good, updated drivers, and now it's working awesome.

This should be moved to Computer Support forum.

Have you installed the drivers for your video card so that you can set higher resolutions?

Also, 800x600 is a lower resolution than 1024x768 so things will get larger as this is reducing the amount of pixels used to display.
