Windows 7: Generic Non pnp Monitor Fix

03 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Editoin 32 bit
Generic Non pnp Monitor Fix many others, my Windows 7 32bit system was working "fine" yesterday. I turned it on today to see that my 4 monitor configuation was out of order and the resolutions were all wrong. This was devastating!
I panicked! I started surfing the web for fixes, installing updated drivers, reading forum after forum only to be met with disapointment and frustration. How can this happen?! Nothing changed! My God! Yet I perservered...and heres how I "fixed" it.

First I calmed down, thought it through. The damn thing worked yesterday. So that means, the system should already have everything I need to fix the problem. Right? Right! So...

*Right-click on your desktop and select "screen resolution".
*Select the monitor in question (in my case it was monitor #4, my 32" Vizio) right click on it and select properties.
*Select the Driver tab and click update driver.
*Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
*Uncheck the box "show compatable hardware"
*In standard monitor types (or your brand may be in the list) find the resolution your monitor was running (mine was 1920x1080 60Hz)
*Click next and it should install...and you may need to restart you computer, not sure.
* Last but not least, you may also need to go back and change the screen refresh rate. After it puts the new driver in, for some reason, it may be the correct resolution, but not the correct refresh rate. Change it in the monitor tab under properties and you should be good to go.

Now what causes this problem? Im not sure. I can only imagine its some kind of dark magic that neither I, nor the next average guy, who just wants to play Morrowind without fixing his damn computer all day, can hope to understand. Hopefully this helps some of worked for me.
