Display Settings unable to adjust resolution

All of the sudden a client's computer can no longer adjust the resolution and everything looks stretched.  She recently updated an older computer from Windows 8 to 8.1 but this happened several days after that update (the computer originally came with Vista, which was updated to Win 7 then Win 8.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated,

it looks like another display driver was installed; so you can try updating, or roll back of that driver
it may also be needed to update other drivers, like chipset, sound, etc...
