Re: Monitor resolution problem
Are you sure it is a 23 inch monitor, or TV? As my 720P tv always has a black box around it, and if it is a TV, chances are, it has a SLIGHTLY different resolution, they make the claim of 1080P, but they can sometimes go higher, or just under that by a bit.
And everything will look that small since you are trying to run at a higher resolution on a SMALLER screen, it means you have more pixels, and everything is a set size pretty much.
You have become used to 1280x1024 on a 26inch screen, 1280x1024 is standard for 15-19 monitors.
But yea, higher resolutions usually make things smaller, hence the reason for larger monitors at higher resolutions, and vice versa.
If you want, poke around your GPU driver software to see if it has options to stretch the screen out, and check to see what the screens actual standard resolution is, for both monitors.
Also, it is good practice to uninstall old drivers while in safemode, then install new drivers when updating them.
