Windows 7: Screen Resolution - Display Settings

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - 64 Bit
 
 

I can't really explain it and the picture is either too hard to recognize but 1600x1200 was too small and 1280x1024 was too big.

Yep, it needs to be set to 1440x900 then. It appears that the N19W is an OEM-only monitor, and that AOC doesn't provide support for it. There's alot on the internet for this same problem for this monitor. It's such an old monitor, I can't find the INF file (driver) for that monitor either.

Does your friend still happen to have the drivers disc that came with it that you might see if installing in compatibility mode for the Windows it came with may work, or selecting the INF file through Disk Management for the monitor?

It is actually my monitor, unfortunately I don't have the drivers as I did get it second hand.

I'm not sure what else you can do other than finding a resolution that looks best to you.

Hmm, the funny thing is about 2-3 months ago the monitor was running the perfect resolution with the same computer (the computer hasn't even been opened), no idea why it is not working now.

Sounds like you lost the driver in the reinstall. You might see if making sure that step 3 in the tutorial below is set to see if Windows may be able to update the driver automatically and have it work properly again afterwards. It might take a few days though.

Oops, after reinstalling, forgot to run Windows Update and WEI, I'll try that first, then your tutorial.

Couldn't see any graphic related updates, but who knows.
