all sorted heres how i did it

  1. Open the Pi's Terminal (via SSH , Monitor etc)
  2. We need to access a folder named boot which is hidden so type:
cd /boot

3. If you would like to see the files inside the boot folder list them by typing :


4. We need to access a file named config.txt to be able to edit this file type:

sudo nano config.txt
When the config.txt file opens look for the comment saying #Uncomment to force a specific HDMI Mode
1. Right bellow that line should copy and paste or type the following- we will force the resolution of our screen out
hdmi_mode =1 
hdmi_cvt=800 480 60 6 0 0 0

2. Save the file by pressing --> Control+X then Y and finally Enter

3. Type


4. Finally check if it worked by rebooting your pi with:

sudo reboot
