Windows 7 not recognizing LG lcd monitor
Posted on 2010-01-11
Hello, a customer of mine has installed Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.
He has this problem and I wasn't able to help him: his LG M237W lcd monitor isn't recognized by the new OS. There were no problems with Windows XP.
This cause all resolutions to be screwed up, the monitor is 16:9 but only 4:3 resolutions are available. The monitor's optimum resolution would be 1920x1080, but Windows sees the top resolution as 1600x1200...
When I tried to install the driver downloaded from LG site, Windows said the best driver available is already installed.
The monitor doesn't even get recognized as a PnP monitor.
The video card is nvidia, and even when I tried to change resolutions from nvidia control panel or the monitor tab in advanced video settings, videogames still wouldn't work at the monitor's best resolution.
How can this be solved?
