    Weird issue regarding resolution.


    So i have an Acer x203 monitor and after i left it on for a while and restarted my computer the resolution was very messed up. I tried changing it but nothing afterwards looked right. I am currently sitting at 1600x900 but everything still looks fat and big.

    http://puu.sh/9oqyM/8e2aeaeac1.jpg This is how the screen looks right now as of 1600x900, not the icons on my desktop are set to small.

    Here is one thing that i noticed as well. I went to go boot the computer in safe mode and when i changed the resolution there to 1600x900, it looked how it did before all this happened. My current graphics card is an AMD R7 260x. I recently reinstalled the drivers but to no avail. I'm pretty stuck at this point.

    Do you install any new software prior to this happening ? Have you done a virus /malware scan ? I've had similar issues pop up at work, and it turned out that they got a virus from one of those " You need to update your flash" websites.
