Lightroom resolution small than actual resolution

Earlier in the week - I changed the display performance option to make Lightroom faster. However, I've decided I don't want to do that, but now I can't change back.

Lightroom's display resolution (1440 x 900) is smaller than my actual resolution (2560 x1600). I have restarted Lightroom, reinstalled Lightroom, called customer service and talk through the issue with someone on Adobe Forum. I have also experimented with the Systems Preference > Display > Scaled vs. Default setting. I have tried to change my Lightroom settings to the "highest options" i.e. catalog settings to 2080 px instead of auto 1440 px, font size on Interface. 

The issue is that my Lightroom is then "pixelated looking". Words/text are pixelated, images aren't to its full resolution. Exporting images are fine - images held resolution, but editing will take longer to bounce back and check. Look at "Lightroom Catalog.lrcat" and how pixelated it is.

Try resetting the preferences. It looks like Lightroom is still using the old display resolution, even though you changed that back.
