  • PXIe-8880

Issue Details

  • I reinstalled the operating system (OS) of my PXI controller but I found the video output resolution is only 1400*1050, normally 2560*1440. How to fix it?
  • I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and now I can't set the proper screen resolution.

Solution

After reinstalling or upgrading the OS, you have to install the Firmware and Peripheral Drivers for Controller based on the type of your controller.

You also can update graphic card driver manually by using Device Manager in Windows. Alternately, you can try a different monitor, preferably a newer and larger one.

Additional Information

Kindly ensure the monitor you are using is compatible with the resolution you are planning to implement else the monitor will be the factor that affect your video display resolution.
