    W10 new build low resolution.

    Got a new build PC with W10, screen resolution too low despite set to 1080p. My previous Windows 7 machine displays fine on same monitor. Tried all available settings options in W10 and Nvidia panel, also checked monitor display settings and another HDMI cable. Managed to get screen sized properly, but text, images, etc, are a pixelated low res. I've searched this issue online, but none of the suggestions have helped. I don't want to risk buying new monitor (existing one is 6 years old) in case issue recurs. I'm gutted as this is a brand new build, so any help would be appreciated.Cheers.

    My display settings are 1920 x 1080 (recommended), text and other sizing 100% (recommended). I've readjusted everything with no result. Due to the number of similar complaints I've seen online I think this may be an issue with W10 scaling on certain monitors which only an update could solve.
