I'm using Windows 10, integrated graphics is Intel HD 2000. Monitor is an Onn ONA18HO015, which has a native resolution of 1920x1080. Connected via VGA cable.

This morning, I was using my computer at 1920x1080 as usual. I shut it off for seven hours, and now I can't change from 1366x768.

It POSTs at 800x600 as normal. Windows does its booting animation at 1024x768 as normal. However, as Windows starts and the graphics driver is loaded, it won't go up or down from 1366x768 (no options other than 1366x768 in the Windows menu (even the "run in 640x480" option in the Compatibility tab of programs is grayed out) and I can't even force it lower or higher in the Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel).

I've rebooted computer & monitor multiple times, replugged cables, reinstalled the Intel HD Graphics driver, and tried older versions of it - no dice, still won't budge from 1366x768. CCleaner Happy Wheels VLC

Since the POST and Windows booting animation is the usual resolution, but in Windows it won't budge either way from 1366x768, I suspect this may be a Windows issue; if no one can figure out the issue, I'll try it out from a Linux USB.

Take a hammer (Ball Pein will work best) and tap the the centre of the screen. Start off with a light tap and then start using more force as you go. In extreme cases, usually some penetrating fluid and heat will fix it. Hope this helps.

Put it in the microwave

Possible solutions: Revert graphics card/s to previous versions or, turn off pc, unplug display port/HDMI cable. Turn on PC and plug cables back in.
