Native resolution wallpapers look blurred when set

Recommended Posts

Savidge

Hey there, I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and knows how to fix it. My native resolution is 1366x768, but whenever I add a wallpaper matching those dimensions (or if I add a wallpaper that's above those dimensions too) it looks really blurry when I set it as my desktop wallpaper. On the internet, the images look fine. Maybe it's an outdated driver or something? Excuse me if it's really obvious what's going wrong. :colgate:

Are you setting it as your background with your browser, or are you saving the image and setting it?

I've tried both, but unfortunately none of those options fix the issue.

I know this sounds like a stupid question but, are you setting the thumbnail of the image as the background or the actual image itself?

heheh, no. I'm 100% sure I'm using the image at its fullest resolution.

Are the window's own desktop background blurry too?

Try adjusting the picture position, like center, fit, etc and see if that helps.

Yeah, the default wallpapers are all blurry too. It doesn't matter which orientation it is either (Fit seems to be the best, but it still has some blurry spots).

Is this a laptop or desktop?

If it's a laptop, then try hooking it up to a external monitor or HDTV and see if the background is also blurry on that.

If it's a desktop, then try a different monitor or different cable.

Update graphic card drivers.

Try taking a picture

Hmmm, I will try the HDTV thing later on. Thanks for the tips. Just to let you know, this sort of stuff happens when watching videos on YouTube too. 1080p is the same as watching 360p for me. Really bizarre stuff.

 

EDIT: my graphics driver is up-to-date, too. so it's not that.

Have you had this Laptop/Desktop for awhile without this problem or is it new and was like this when you bought it?

when I first got it there was no blurred wallpapers, so I'm guessing that it must've been caused by something later on.

Can you think of anything you may have changed leading up to these blurry wallpapers? Is your windows fully up to date with all the updates? Try chaging your GPU driver version to a beta or older version.

I barely mess around with anything to do with stuff relating to the PC setup itself, so I don't know how it occurred, it just sorta happened one day and I noticed it. Before I installed the latest GPU driver update the blurred display was still there, so I have no clue what else to check. Maybe it's just my laptop getting old. I have this exact laptop, if it makes any difference.

Does it only do this with the wallpaper and youtube or does it do it on everything?

Yeah, it's just like this with the wallpaper and when viewing YouTube videos. If it happened all the time, I'd have bought a new PC by now. :lol:
