Windows 7: Monitor cant be set to the right resolution

Monitor cant be set to the right resolution

I have had this hp 2711x monitor for a few years now, and the resolution setting has been perfect. Then a few weeks ago the resolution changed to 1024x769 by itself and is listed as generic non-pnp monitor. I tried to change it back to the usual resolution but I cant change it back. I have tried to force set it using nvidias tool but to no avail. I plugged my tv into it and it was fine so i plugged my monitor back into the computer and then it went back to the right resolution but when i turned the computer off the resolution went back to 1024x768 and I cant figure this out at all. I have a evga 560ti card and I have tried downloading other drivers too. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hmm that didn't work either. Do you think if I just completely wiped my computer and started with a fresh install that might do something? I guess it could also be a possibility that the monitor just doesn't work, but that doesn't make sense to me because it does work intermittently.

Tried another port on the GPU yet? Is there a factory reset option in On-Screen Display menu of monitor?
