Screen Resolution Problems in Windows 7 After Reinstall

Postby ericmark » Sat Feb 11, 2017 11:33 am

I love photography and use my laptop with Photoshop CS5, the RAW converter will not work with a low resolution all the controls disappear. I have other programs which are the same.

However go onto the internet and I find with Firefox which has the best colour rendering the writing is too small to read.

I did not notice this problem when using Vista, only seems to have come with Windows 7, my hard drives failed so three new hard drives were fitted by my son, two raid solid state drives which I see as one drive, and a 1Tb mechanical drive. I had lost my operating system waited too long before asking him to repair so he had some Windows 7 licences so installed that. This has caused no end of problems, from finding out passwords to finding hardware like scanners failing.

However also some plus bits like the virtual desktop allowing me to use the desktop from laptop.

On all my computers this web site is around half the screen size, the bit I am typing in is around 1/4 width of screen, OK on desk top with 43 inch screen but laptop with 18.4" full HD X-block LCD screen need two pairs of glasses.
