-Acer X223W Monitor
-Windows 7 64
Here's the problem:
I was using my computer when my mother accidentally hit the room switch which turns my entire rig off. Annoyed, I turn my computer back on and now my screen resolution is all messed up. On top of that I can't open Chrome due to misplaced files.
I reinstalled all my drivers
but instead of detecting the name of my monitor, it just shows Generic PnP Monitor instead.
I pick the best screen res(1600 x 1200) but that is clearly wrong(but the best i can do).
I've done a system restore and reinstalled all my drivers. I looked for the Acer X223W drivers but all I got was a security catalog, setup information, and an ICC profile that doesn't do anything when I run it. I searched for driver
updates on device manager but it says the Generic PnP monitor driver is up to date.
My fear is that this is truly a hardware problem from the light switch, and nothing but a new monitor will fix. Anyone care to dig into this one?
