Try a different method to set the resolution and make sure that the display scaling is set to GPU. Also, make sure that you first create the resolution in the Nvidia control panel if you are using that.

Thanks!!! Method 4 finally worked for me. My monitor’s cable (the blue one) fell out one time and when I plugged it back in, the aespect ratio was different and when I tried to change it back, my monitor’s standard default resolution (1440x900) was missing? I tried for hours trying to figure out how to fix it but finally just using the custom resolution software thingy helped me fix it back. Now I finally have my real resolution back. Thank god

For the AMD one it seems when i press right click on DALNonStandardModesBCD1. it doesnt give me an option edit

Try creating it:

Right-click on the “0000” folder and select “New” > “Key.”

Name the new key “DALNonStandardModesBCD1” and press Enter.

Right-click on the new “DALNonStandardModesBCD1” key and select “New” > “DWORD (32-bit) Value.”

Name the new value “DALNonStandardModesBCD1” and press Enter.

Double-click on the new “DALNonStandardModesBCD1” value and set the value data to “1” and click OK.

Close the Registry Editor and restart your computer.

Are you working from a laptop? There might be two things happening here.

  1. Either you set the custom resolution for your laptop screen and not for the external monitor. Make sure you plug in your monitor, then select your external monitor in your intel hd graphics, set the custom resolution then apply it

  2. Everytime you unplug and plug in your external monitor, new settings are acquired depending on its resolution and the old ones are overwritten. So you need to set the custom resolution after you plug in your monitor

Hi
Thanks for the article, I have followed the steps to set up the custom resolution and when I look in the Intel HD Control panel the resolution is there. However when I then click on the desktop and try and select the cusom resolution for my external monitor it does not appear in the list for me to select from it still reverts to the recommended resolution?
