Hi i just got my AW 17 r3 with the awesome 17.3 inch UHD (3840 x 2160) IGZO IPS screen, i have 1 issue though...

When i hook up my Graphic Amplifier and attached my external monitor to it i have massive BIG icons on my external monitor?? My external monitor does not support 4k it is max resolution is 1920x1080. Now im wondering is there something i can do to have normal size icons or do I need to purchase a 4k external monitor for it to be compatible?

My Graphic Amplifier has this Video card in it: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming so i know its able to perform in 4k resolution.

Thanks for your help
