1920x1080 laptop stuck on 1600x900 after clean install

ENVY 17-j034ca
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My laptop was able to display 1920x1080 in the operating system it came with, Windows 8. But ever since I downgraded to windows 7, my laptop's maximum screen resolution can only display 1600x900 max resolution. 

 

I've tried looking everywhere on Google for a solution but nothing seems to work. What should I do?

Memory can be a tricky thing. The specs for that model say it is a 1600 x 900 screen:

If that is the case, the operating system does not matter. It is not capable within the laws of the universe to display at actual 1920 x 1080. It has 1600 pixels across and 900 pixels up and down and that cannot be changed.
