Windows 7: Monitor detected as analog but is digital

Monitor detected as analog but is digital

My Acer G215H is connected to my nVidia GT 430 via DVI, but in every monitor-related settings screen is says it's analog. The driver for said monitor includes both analog and digital drivers. It's actually very irritating to get 1080P but only at 60Hz. Solution?

Sorry but you should read the specs.
PS both my monitors run at 60Hz and I have no problem with this

I figured it out. I have the same monitor that you're using. All you have to do is go into "Device Manager" and right-click on your monitor under "Monitors", then click "Update driver software...". Then click "Browse my computer for driver software", and now click "Let me pick from a list...". Click "Acer G215H(Digital)" and then "next". You're done.

I'm not sure if using the other driver actually does anything, but that's one little annoyance taken care of.
