Greetings,
 
I have an HP Folio Laptop connected to a Widescreen Monitor via a HDMI adaptor. For some reason the highest resolution is now 1366 x 768 it used to be 1920 x 1080. Not sure what happened this happened a few months ago but it resolved itself.

The only reason that I've seen this happen was with a failing HDMI cable/connector.  It's also possible the adapter you are using maybe failing.

Are you duplicating the displays?  When you duplicate it will go to the lowest resolution of the two displays.  If the laptop displays 1920 x 1080 and the external monitor displays 1368 x 768 then the resolution will be set to 1368 x 768, the lowest common resolution.

 

If you extend the display each monitor should be able to be set to its native resolution, even if the resolution of the two monitors is different.

I agree with this good information!
