    Windows logo on boot up is stretched

    Hi all,

    I have installed Windows 10 Pro installed in UEFI mode. On start up, the blue Windows logo is slightly stretched and appears to be displayed at an incorrect resolution. Is there a way to fix this. Even the little dots that go round for a few seconds are in a slightly oval pattern. This is only during the initial boot process, once at the login screen everything is normal. I am running the latest GPU driver for my GTX980Ti.

    My monitor is 27 inch 2560x1440.

    Can I fix this, or is it something I must just live with? I have a few other Win 10 machines and this is the only one that displays the starting logo incorrectly.

    Hey Archie123, that would make sense I guess. It does not bother me to be honest but as I have a few other Windows 10 machines, not very different to this one in terms of hardware (all MSI motherboards and nVidia GPU's, plus a laptop that does not display this issue, so thought I should investigate. I was thinking that maybe it was/is also a factor of slightly larger than average screen.
