Good news; I found a different GPU monitor that works without Rivatuner.
I'm going to call that good news Good going!

Hey A Guy,

I was wondering if you had a workaround for the patricular model in this Title? Similar to the fellow you already helped?

Thanks

For whatever reason, that forum has closed & I cannot contact the author to confirm if the new driver indeed works. So, I'm hoping someone here might have some knowledge in this area.

I have attached a .doc Word file. The original is on the left & new on the right with differences in BOLD RED. I admit, I haven't a clue what would or wouldn't work as I am not skilled in this. If anyone can confirm that it is legit or if there's no harm in trying it, please post your thoughts.

Thanks
Just tried it on my PC, and it worked! Thanks so much!

GARoss, I have the same problem, win 7 64 will not recognize the monitor;
I tried to download your file but the download wasn't working.
Can you re-upload the file (if you still have it around)
Greatly appreciated.

Okay, since I have it connected to laptop, so I switched to external monitor only display (not duplicate) Nvidia GTX 670 recognized Dell's 1920x1200 resolution and I didn't need a monitor driver.
Thank you AddRam, your screen shot helped me recognize that the GTX is matching both screens.

Sorry to be late in helping out, AshTree. I have since changed monitors but gave the 2405FPW to a friend who just bought an inexpensive Dell desktop (Windows 7-64bit) & needed a monitor. The proper driver was detected, loaded & went to 1920x1200 rez without issues. AddRAM's advice was spot on!
