  • Hi NamelessLT,

    Could you provide information about (physical) max resolution of each monitor, and about DPI of your Windows 7 (100%=96 DPI, 125%=120 DPI)?

  • Hi NamelessLT,

    According to your description, we could uninstall the video driver and reinstall it from manufacturer’s official website. Please refer to the link below to get more information.


    Please Note: Since the website is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.

    Also there are HDMI to DVI cables and adapters available that may help you identify the issue.

    Hope it will be helpful to you
