Hi. I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on my hp dv6910el laptop, and I have a problem.
Windows only recognizes my display as Generic PnP Monitor. Monitor specifications given by Hp are too general: "15.4” WXGA High Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800)"
Because of this, Windows 7 forces only 4 resolutions available, and only one refresh rate: 59Hz. It of course shows 60Hz refresh rate but it forces the 59Hz one automatically. This affects all my 3d applications deeply, I would love to fix the problem.
My previous Vista operating system automatically recognized the monitor, but Windows 7 doesn't. I would love some ideas in how to solve this problem.
