LCD Monitors display images much better at native resolution. Native resolution is also the maximum resolution an LCD screen can display. It uses all of the pixels in the LCD screen exactly as it was engineered. Windows using your LCD monitor native resolution which been reported by the LCD Monitor.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

Are you trying to set the resolution higher or lower than the recommended resolution?

 

Why are you trying to change the resolution?

You should be using the native resolution and use other methods to make things larger.  For example you can hold down the CTRL key and use the mouse scroll to change the size of the icons on the desktop, this also works for web browsers, and the Microsoft Office products.

You can change the text size if that wont help you can set a custom scalling level, both can be configured from Control Panel --> Display.
