    Hello,

    I have a issue with Windows since I updated from 8 to 8.1. I tried googling my issue and cannot find anything about this. I have contacted MS but they won't help me without paying a fee. So I'm hoping you can help.

    When I go to resolution on Windows 8.1 it shows the resolution as 1920x1080 (my screens max resolution) and it is only displaying 1268x720. When I play fullscreen games it switches to 1920x1080 but when it goes to the desktop it goes back to 1268x720.

    Suggestions?
