Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, 2.666 GHz / 4094 MB
Hello, I am experiencing a problem with the resolution while playing a Steam game. For example when I set the resolution to 1024x768 (17" monitor) its all good, except the hud and the text on the screen. They got smaller than they should be. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, but I have a friend, who doesnt get this problem on the same windows. So I was wondering where does this problem come from, cuz I can't fix it. Thanks

Which resolution are you asking about...the monitor resolution or the game resolution? Since the monitor is capable of 1600x1200, I know I sure as heck wouldn't set it to 1024x768. I'd run it at either 1280x1024 or 1600x1200, then I'd adjust the DPI & refresh rate to give the best picture. Once set, there should be no reason to change it. Your game resolution settings will vary from game to game, but those changes are made within the game itself.
