Screen Resolution Issues

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 17-p047cl
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I am trying fingure out how to change screen resolution. Unfortunately, my only choices are 1690x900, 1280x720, and 1024x768 all are 60hz. How do i get more choices.

 

Thanks

Doc Myers

Your display panel from specs:

 

Display
17.3-inch diagonal HD+ BrightView WLED-backlit display (1600 x 900)
 

 

Digital flat panel screens only look their best at "native" resolution. In your case, 1600 x 900. And the refresh rate is "virtual". There is no refreshing like you used to have on old tube monitors: 60 hz is kind of a placeholder. So to answer your question directly, your screen should be set to 1600 x 900 and any adjustment you want to make in appearance should be done by scaling in the WIndows display properties.
