The standard VGA driver you are referring to is what Win7 installs when the video driver for your chip or card is unavailable or not specialized enough for a WHQL driver.

Turn on Windows Updates and check for a newer driver to install.

Can you look at the Specs for your computer to see exactly what graphics card or chip it has so we can help you find the driver?

Otherwise please say the make and model of your computer.

What is your computer make and model number? Example HP 1701, or Gateway 5254

You gave your monitor model.

The computer model will be on a sticker on the side or back of the case, next to the serial number. Need the exact model number.

Then what is the video card or chip make and model?

Standard VGA is a default driver, not the card or chip. Need the make and model of the card or chip.
