P51 display is squeezing to 4:3

2020-06-22, 7:29 AM

As pictured (sorry for the potato quality). (to view properly and unsized, hit reply and then quote)


The picture is with the display settings window maximised. Windows 'thinks' it is displaying 1920x1080, but it basically squeezed into (what appears to be - haven't actually measured) a 4:3 ratio

Does anybody know what caused this or how I can make it NOT do this?


Rebooting doesn't help. When I uninstall the drivers, it goes into a low resolution mode at 16:9 but when I reboot the drivers install and it's back at 4:3.


It MAY have been caused/related to when I was using the laptop as an anydesk server and using the auto-adapt resolution, which changes it. Or possibly this is just a confound.
