Windows 7: acer al2216w windows 7 resolution issues

07 Feb 2011   #11

Windows 7

Can you imagine this issue came back out of no where and is affecting my monitor once again, I"m now stuck at Generic NON PnP Monitor and the resolution is 640 x 480.

What's going on?

Could this be an issue with my Video Card?

Windows 7,8, & 10 x64

Amazingly, this issue just came up for me on this Acer ACL2216W monitor when I upgraded one of my PC's to Windows 10 (but the resolution worked fine under Windows 7) . After upgrading, Win10 was forcing me to use 1600x1200 resolution on a 1680x1050 monitor, which made the display stretched and blurry. I tried a number of solutions to no avail and then found this thread suggesting the VGA cable.

Doubting this solution but getting desperate, I swapped the VGA-DVI adapter cable that had been working all along in Windows 7 with a new DVI-DVI cable, and voila, back to native 1680x1050 resolution again. Very strange... Anyway, thank you for this rather old, but still quite valid solution :)
