Screen resolution is lowering

Original Title - Screen Resolution

After updating from windows 8 to windows 8.1 my screen resolution fell from 1920 x 1080 to 1536 x 864.

All my graphic card drivers are up to date. When I go into screen resolution the screen resolution is set to 1920 x 1080 whereas in reality it is 1536 x 864 as shown by Nvidia Geforce experience.


What should I do?

thanks

You've probably already figured this out but here it is nonetheless:

Updating to Windows 8.1 enables by default a display scaling to 125% to enlarge icons for better readability (useful for tiny laptop screens with crazy high resolutions) which is why Windows thinks it's at its native resolution of 1080. However, GeForce Experience is unaware of this change and displays the resolution at something lower to adapt to the scaling.

The simple solution is to go back to the screen resolution display change from right clicking on your desktop and select "Make Text and Other items smaller or larger" and set the scale from 125% to 100% and voila! Your GeForce Experience should now be set to 1080p.

Thank you! This fixed the same problem I was having. Now both displays are set at 1080p and everything's nice and clear.
