•When the picture resolution is changed on a pc depending on an input, automatic adjustment function may take some time and may not be completed. In this case, you may not be able to see a check box to select “Yes/No” for the new resolution on Windows. Then the resolution will go back to the original. It might be recommended to use other CRT or LCD monitors to change the resolution.
