Windows 7: LCD Monitor does not support W7 anymore.

LCD Monitor does not support W7 anymore.

Hello guys,

I'm in trouble with my monitor. I have one AOC 511Vwb LCD 15,6" Widescreen.
The specs in portuguese: http://www.aoc.com.br/media/anexo/es...oes/511vwb.pdf

I've been using it... i don't know... for like 5 months, and it presented a couple of times an issue of not being recognized by my OS.

When it is recognized, i can set his native resolution to 1280x800 60Hz, but now the max resolution that i can get is 1280 x 720 and this resolution is very very weird on my screen.

So i tried to use it on two diferent notebooks, one using Windows 7 and one using Windows Vista and he worked perfectly only on the notebook with Vista.

And guess what, the monitor is "Vista Ready".

This problem happened before and solved by itself, and now passed 2 weeks and nothing to come back the way it should be.

And since i've tried basicly everything i'm now "closed mind" and looking for new viewpoints.

If somebody can help me with that, i'd be grateful!

(Sorry for all the wrong sentences you find, english is not my primary language )

Hello Renato and welcome to the forum.

To my best knowledge a monitor doesn't care which operating system you are using and I have difficulty understanding why your monitor is not working.
Have a look here maybe it will help; http://www.aoc-europe.com/en/service-support.html

Hey pooch.

Yeah man, me neither, and "googleing" around i found one other person with the same problem and he solved it by magic, just turned on his computer some day and everything was fine.

I've already tried to contact AOC here in Brazil but they never answered my questions.

I believe i'm gonna try to contact Europe's AOC maybe they are more kind to their costumers.

Maybe if i try to make some reg changes regarding of my monitor driver can solve the problem? But i would need some directions of what to change...

That is what the link was for
The link is not working for me but it maybe better for you to use a local download as drivers are not always the same in different places go here; AOC Global Home select South America then Brazil then look for the support tab and it will be either downloads or drivers then you just need your monitor number.
I hope this helps, if not get back to me and I will try to find a direct link for you.

PS have you thought about trying a new cable for the monitor?

The link doesn't help because i've already downloaded the driver in AOC's brazilian site, which is the only country to produce the model of my monitor.

No, i didn't try another cable... and i'll not be able to try another for the weekend.

I have some news!

I went to regedit and found the monitor driver of windows seven.
There i found like 12 drivers installed.
So i removed all drivers and just let the AOC's driver.

After rebooting my PC i saw for like 3 seconds my desktop on 1280 x 800 and then he blinked and came back for 1280 x 720.

I went to regedit again and saw another driver installed.

I really don't know why the computer is installing another monitor driver.

Try going to device manager selecting your monitor, properties, Driver tab and see if you can roll back to the last driver.
