The minimum screen resolution that your monitor should be set to is 1024x768. This can be configured by going into the Control Panel, clicking on ‘Display’, then clicking on the ‘Settings’ tab and moving the Screen Resolution slider to the desired setting. It’s worth noting that the resolution options will be severely limited if you don’t have the correct video drivers installed.
