I'm not sure if its a problem with my monitor driver
or graphics card driver. After I installed win 7 x64, windows sets my monitor driver to generic non-pnp monitor, supporting resolutions up to 1600x1200
and refresh rates up to 200 Hz
, but my monitor actually supports resolutions up to 1024x768
and refresh rate of 120Hz
. If I manually install my monitor driver from the list of incompatible drivers
, the 'screen resolution' dialog box shows :
Display:1.display device on:VGA
It also shows that my monitor supports resolutions up to 1600x1200!
My graphics card in GeForce 8500GT and driver version is 195.62.
This is generally not a problem as I manually set resolution to 800x600 and refresh rate to 85Hz. but when I play some games or select a higher resolution from
the game, I get a black screen. This problem persists even I start the game after selecting a higher resolution from the 'screen resolution' dialog box.
