Windows 7: Generic Non-PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphic Adapter

Try using a DVI cable, it worked for me. Else, try modifying the Nvidia drivers with 'powerstrip' to force it to go to the resolution/hz you want. Not recommended, because programs still will think you dont have the correct drivers. So using a DVI cable is your only option atm imho.

I am so frustrated.I have got a similar problem.I have installed win 7 64 bit but windows detects my screen as Generic non Plug and play.I had NO problem in windows XP and could do 1280x1024 no problem.Now I can only do 1024x768.I have a GF8400GS Card.Very latest drivers installed from NVIDIA 191.07. I have checked the back of my monitor it says model VM7ERDA-s12 and it says RECTRON on the front.It is 17''I have tried to "make" a new driver via powerstrip but it didn't work.Now is there something as a generic plug and play driver that I can download/get from somewhere or can I try to install a standard vga monitor driver from the list of monitors that Win 7 supports? I have hooked up my girlfriends screen (17'' Mecer) to my pc and it works fine.So it's not a display driver problem.I cannot seem to find drivers for the VM7ERDA -s12.What am I to do next? Any help will be appreciated.

I had a VERY similar issue. After I had downloaded the lastest driver I had my driver installer search my C: drive for the dirvers and it found and installed them. Once that had finished everything worked properly from the Aero effects, screen diming, and all that good stuff. To do that got to device manager>Display Adapter>Non-PnP Dispaly adapter properties>Driver tab>Update diver>browse my computer....> and just search the C: drive and it should find and automatically install the latest drivers. Hope that works!

You pretty much answered your own question. You hooked up your girlfriends monitor and no problem. Sadly enough unless you can find some kind of driver for your monitir it is not going to work. As you stated you have already tried powerstrip with no success. Unless somebody else on this site knows of a way to, or a program to write a driver .inf file for your monitor. Replacing it seems to be your only way to rectify this problem

I too had the same problem. Extremely frustrating. After reading threads, I finally was able to get nvidia to install updated drivers for windows 7 64 bit.

I went to Disclaimer | laptopvideo2go.com

Downloaded both the driver and .inf

Ran the program, and put the .inf file into the extracted file. After that, it installed and worked.
