    Well, I am "able" to, Just when I do my screen gets stretched (I have no "recommended" resolution in my display settings there are only 4 which do not fit in anyway shape or form) When I load up any game with any of those resolutions I barely scratch 5 FPS.

    I am currently of version 391.35 which is the one that works fine on most games and does not stretch my screen
    BUT I need to update in order to play some other games. (Update to 399.07).

    My pc specs are as follows :

    Gtx 750TI
    amd fx-8350 black edition vishera 8-core 4.0 ghz
    8gb of ram

    PS : Sorry If I made any grammatical or spelling mistakes, I am not an English speaker.
    Thank you for your time and for reading.

    HERE is the most current(399.07) Windows 10 64-bit driver for your GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphic card.
    Download and save it, then close all open windows, then double-click it to start the update process, then follow the instructions.

    Since you use your computer for gaming, you might consider adding another 8 GB of RAM - if your motherboard supports 16 GB.

    You didn't describe your monitor, so we don't know what its native resolution is.

    You didn't describe your monitor, but you say its native resolution is 1366 X 768?
    What resolution are you trying to use?

    Have you updated the graphic driver with the webpage link I provided?

    I don't see 1366 X 768 (1.778 ratio) in your list of settings.
    And you appear to be using the 1280 X 1024 (1.250 ratio) setting.
    That's going to cause you to stretch your display horizonally to fill the monitor screen.

    Go into the Device Manager, then expand the Monitors heading.
    What's the exact name listed there for your monitor?

    "Generic non-pnp monitor" and exactly when I update my gpu drivers I only get those options.

    Right-click that Generic Non-PNP Monitor entry, then select to update its driver, then select to automatically search for a driver.
    If a monitor driver is found at the Windows Update Catalog site, it'll download and install automatically and the monitor's description will appear.
    If it fails to find a driver and it remains a generic monitor, it's probably because your monitor is too old.
