Monitor resolution all wonky o_0 Reply with quote
Hey there folks. I'm runnin an EVGA 970 with a Hannspree 28" monitor (1900x1200) as my main monitor and a BenQ XL2420T as my secondary monitor. My issue is that for some reason from time to time Nvidia decides that the BenQ monitor is a 720P monitor instead of a 1080P monitor. The driver simply refuse to see it as a 1080P monitor. I've tried making a custom resolution when this wonkiness happens, but of course its then trying to scale 1080P out of 720P and it looks like a mess. What could be causing this weird resolution issue? Running Windows 7 Pro with the latest Nvidia drivers. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! ^_^

Not that this is guaranteed to be your problem but Nvidia's drivers are legendary for blindly overriding whatever you tell it with whatever EDID is broadcast by the monitor, even if it is laughably incorrect. I spent years struggling with a Westinghouse that had a poorly programed EEPROM before throwing in the towel and just replacing it.

I'd recommend finding an EDID tool to find what your BenQ monitor is advertising, both normally and when it's going all wonky, so that you can hopefully call the manufacturer on their smurf (and hopefully they care more than Westinghouse did).
