NOTE: This article is for DAKboard OS devices only.  If you are not using a DAKboard OS device, check our articles in the Tablets/Other Devices section to learn more about resolutions for alternative devices.

If your DAKboard Wall Display, CPU, or DIY CPU running the DAKboard OS has your Screen appear larger than normal, the resolution may not be set correctly. If you wish to change the resolution to something your Monitor can handle, use the following steps to correct this.

In your DAKboard account, click on Displays & Devices, then click the three dots next to the desired display and select Settings:

Scroll down and select View Device Settings:

NOTE: To access the display settings from your Computer, Tablet, Laptop, or Smartphone, you will need to be on the same WiFi network as your Wall Display or CPU.

On the settings page, scroll down to find the Screen section, and set the Resolution to the desired resolution:

NOTE: Your monitor may not support some of these resolutions. Make sure you know what resolution they will support as choosing a resolution out of range may cause your Screen to fail to display at all. For example, the v2, and v2 Plus Wall Display's maximum resolution is 1080p. Setting the resolution higher than this will prevent the unit from working.

Scroll down further and click the Save Changes or the Save and Reboot button to apply these changes. Restart your DAKboard Wall Display or CPU by unplugging the power and plugging it back in. When it starts back up the resolution should be correct.  For DAKboard OS devices running v2.28 (find my release) and later, no restart is necessary and the changes will take effect immediately.
