I have never heard of FPS drops because of a change of monitor but perhaps you are playing those games in a Non-Native Resolution for the monitor and that has some sort of an effect to it?

If not, try to see if you can download the drivers for it and install them on your Device Manager.

Sorry, that is all I can think off at the moment.

Unless I'm fundamentally in error about how hardware works I can't see how a change in monitors would cause an FPS drop. A change in GPUs or a change in GPU drivers yes, but not the monitor.

Unless the new monitor's driver is causing it. Uninstall it and see if the FPS improves.

HP drops the ball AGAIN!
Seems that HP is way behind the curve again. It took them almost 4 months to write Vista drivers for the Color LaserJet 2600N (and the stickers on the box were touting "Made for Vista or some rubbish while the drivers were not available). So here we are on the Windows 7 launch date and what...
