Hi,

Not a power user of W10 but I have this monitor at home too and runs fine on W10. For some reason driver (assume) just runs the screen in quite a poor resolution.


Display settings do not give me the option to change it. Any help would be ace.

What is the resolution you get? the display only supports a low 1280x1024, so you won't get anything higher.

Sorry - bad question from me - I should say it's stuck on 1366 x768

when I flick back to W7 using same Monitor I get 1280 x 1024 which is fine

If you connect the display directly to the PC (without the KVM in between), do you get the correct resolution?

Ah ok - not tried that and will be quite hard as the cables are all patched in and hidden. Is that my only option rindi?

You can also try connecting a different display to the PC. That way you can find out if it is a KVM problem, or a problem with the driver for the PC's video card. What video card is the PC using?

You mean that when you connected the display directly to the PC, not via the KVM, you got the correct resolution? Or you got the same wrong resolution?

Hi Rindi - yes it works but the issue is more that there is no way to change it in W10 rendering the system un useable.

I don't know why you can't change the resolution. Never seen this problem before.

Thanks again for trying to help

So with it connected directly to the PC, it gets the correct resolution, while when connected to the KVM switch, it doesn't?

If that is the case you can try right clicking an empty space on the display, and then selecting "Display settings". Then "Advanced Display settings". Now "Display Adapter Properties", and then the "Monitor" tab abd then "Properties". Now on "Driver" and "Update Driver". Now "Browse my Computer for driver software", and then on "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Now uncheck "Show compatible hardware".

Now select "Standard Monitor types". Now find "Digital Flat Panel (1280x1024  60Hz)". Select this and allow it to install. As far as I know you usually need a reboot after that, and then you should get the option to set the resolution to 1280x1024.
