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/Raspberry Pi, running the DAKboard OS, the screen appears larger than normal or blurry, the resolution may not be set correctly. By default, the resolution is set to "Auto" and will try to discover the resolution of the connected monitor/TV. Depending on the type of monitor or TV, the resolution information may not be available, resulting in a blurry or enlarged screen. To fix this, manually set the resolution on your DAKboard Wall Display or CPU. 

In your DAKboard account, click on "Displays", then click the More actions button next to the desired display and select "Settings":

Then select View Device Settings":

Note: You will need to be connected to the same wifi network as your DAKboard device in order to access the settings.

On the settings page, scroll down and find the "Screen" section, and set the Resolution to "HD 1080p" to your monitor's native resolution:

Scroll down further and click the "Save changes" button. 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.
