Monitor Driver

Hi Experts

I've just purchased the AOC e943Fws 18.5" Widescreen LED Monitor. However, the screen isn't very sharp. I was wondering if it might have something to do with the driver. I installed the driver that came with the cd, however I thought there might be an updated driver somewhere. After lengthy searches I couldn't find anything.

I was wondering if any of you guys know of where I can download an appropriate driver?

Cheers

Carlton

Hi

I also can't get the resolution to 1366 x 768 @60Hz. The nearest I get is 1360 x 768 @60Hz. I know there isn't a lot in it but that missing 6 may be why the fonts don't look very sharp.

Cheers

Jarrod,

Thanks for responding. Ive checked out the site you suggested on a previous occassion. Its bit of gimmick really. It says 'Official', but it's simply an application that downloaded onto to pc and scans the pc for everything. Ultimately, you have to purchase something.

Drivers are free to download and you shouldn't have to install any application to scan for drivers.

Basically, I can't get a decent resolution from this monitor, and I thought by installing the latest drivers for it would resolve it.

Are you running with the standard onboard graphics card? or have you installed an after market graphics card?

Not having that resolution available would be the display adapter drivers. Try updating them.

Hi Experts,

Sorry I have responded to your suggestion recently.

Jarrod, I am running the external pci graphics card that was purchased with the PC. However, it is not an onboard graphics card.

edbedb, I going to try your suggestion and see if that makes a difference.

nobus, going to check out the website.

Would I be correct in saying that you guys don't think its an issue with the monitor?

Cheers

it can be a screen problem,  but before concluding that, you have to test  the other possibilities :
another driver, other resolutions , etc..

nobus,

Another PC would be the ideal test, however I don't have one. I do have a laptop. Do you think it possible to test on a laptop?
