Re: screen randomly switches from 16:9 to 4:3 aspect ratio

hi Michael,


Welcome to the Forums.


Can you try updating your display driver below (uninstall the old graphics drive first from Control Panel > Programs then reboot):


Intel® HD graphics Driver for Windows 7* and Windows 8*

Version: (


In addition, do you run any apps / games when the aspect ratio switches from 16:9 to 4:3 ?



Let me know your findings,
