1. I choose Aero theme (Windows 7)

2. Try to select Window Color but all I get is the regular 'Window Color and Appearance' dialogue and not the Aero color selection

Uninstalled and re-installed - still fails. v 12.1 worked just fine

**SOLVED**
Needed to go into CCC and desktop management and change from 16bit to 32bit color Ha

When looking at device manager the monitor is listed as "Generic PnP Monitor"

I have an asus VW246H monitor, any ideas?

Thinking of reverting to a previous version of catalyst.

I have an Asus VE258 and Asus does not have drivers available. I also checked your monitor and the same thing. Mine also shows as Generic PnP Monitor but if I right click the desktop and choose Screen Resolution it shows up there correctly. I believe they use DDC to tell the system what the monitor is and its capabilities and the default monitor.sys driver is all that is needed. You may want to go back to 12.1 and see what it does. I am still on 12.1 and may wait a while to see if any hot fixes are released for 12.2.

Sometimes you can easily correct the Generic PnP Monitor.

Turn off the computer and monitor, UNPLUG the power for 30 minutes so that the charge has a chance to drain from the capacitors. Unplug the video cable as well. Then after 30 minutes, replug the cable, and the power cord. Turn on monitor and reboot computer.

Doesn't always work, but has worked before (this also works sometimes when the network card doesn't seem to be working).
