First time poster here so apologies if this isn't the most suitable place for this query!
Recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 and it will not detect the correct native resolution for my monitor. In the Windows resolution settings the 'recommended' resolution is 1260x1080, and it goes up to somewhere around 1600x900 but does not give the option for 1920x1080.
All drivers are up to date and have been re-installed on a number of occasions. I can actually 'force' the monitor to display at 1920x1080 via the Nvidia control panel but this only affects the desktop view and will not translate into games. When playing anything the highest resolution I can set is 1600x900 and this is also the highest that is suggested in Geforce Experience as the 'Optimised' setting. This would suggest to me that perhaps Windows is not recognising the monitor as capable of 1080p but I can find no way of changing this.
Is there anything anyone can suggest trying? I've spent hours on the internet last night and today to find an answer with no luck!
