I have an MSI GS60 laptop with 4K display, but it cause dpi scaling problems on some programs, i want to run it at 1080p on windows display, but now it looks blurry, when a normal 1080p screen of the same size doesnt, why is this?

Yeah, it is due to interpolation where the video card needs to estimate how pixels should be placed on the LCD screen to emulate 1080p. That's the reason why I avoid 4k resolution screens when I shop around for laptops. Plus 4K screens are a big battery drain.

alot of people use the term 4k, even though it is not 3840x2160. Op hasn't cleared up what resolution he used.
