I have a Dell monitor capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution. It used to have that resolution, but ever since I had windows 10 installed, the resolution is really bad. Now the resolution is 1024 x 768. When I try to change the resolution back to 1920 x 1080 in "display settings", it will not let me. That resolution isn't even shown as an option to switch to.  I tried searching for a remedy online with bing searches, but no helpful searches came up. What can I do?

Is your GPU detected with correct drivers AMD or Nvidia drivers installed within Control Panel/System/Device Manager? (Perhaps MS put in place a default driver adapter of some type? Try an install of correct newest/latest drivers for your MB chipset, and GPU...)

I would uninstall the current graphics drivers...then install graphics drivers downloaded from the system manufacturer's website or the motherboard manufacturer's website.  The graphics drivers control the resolution available on monitor and the drivers can become damaged and then malperform.

I have had that happen several times, and every time it resolved by installing updated drivers from your mainboard or video card manufacturer. Louis' suggestion about deleting the existing drivers first is a good idea....no possibility of conflicts.
