Having problems with your AOC 917Sw 19" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor resolution not listed, Driver update issue

\015 I use Windows XP Pro. Instructions on this new AOC 917sw says to set the resolution to 1440 x 900. This is not listed. The closest numbers listed are 1400 x 1050 and when that is selected the monitor displays an error message that says it's not supported. I do see a display with the 1024 x 768 setting, but the image appears stretched across the screen. However the display appears clear with this setting.\015\012\015\012Following the instructions with the new monitor on setup of drivers. The procedure won't find a better driver on the CD than the standard driver that was installed for a previous monitor. See notes below:\015\012\015\012\015\0121. Start Windows\302\256 XP 2. Click on the 'Start' button and then click on 'Control Panel'. 3. Select and click on the category 'Printers and Other Hardware' 4. Click on the 'Display' Item. 5. Select the 'Settings' tab then click on the 'Advanced' button. 6. Select 'Monitor' tab- If the 'Properties' button is inactive, it means your monitor is properly configured. Please stop installation.\015\012\015\012(YES - PROPERTIES BUTTON IS ACTIVE.)\015\012- If the 'Properties' button is active, click on 'Properties' button.Please follow the steps below. 7. Click on the 'Driver' tab and then click on 'Update Driver...' button. 8. Select the 'Install from a list or specific location [advanced]' radio button and then click on the 'Next' button. 9. Select the 'Don't Search. I will choose the driver to install' radio button. Then click on the 'Next' button. 10. Click on the 'Have disk...' button, then click on the 'Browse...' button and then select the appropriate drive F: (CD-ROM Drive). 11. Click on the 'Open' button, then click the 'OK' button. 12. Select your monitor model and click on the 'Next' button.- If you can see the 'has not passed Windows\302\256 Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows\302\256 XP' message, please click on the 'Continue Anyway' button. 13. Click on the 'Finish' button then the 'Close' button. 14. Click on the 'OK' button and then the 'OK' button again to close the Display_Properties dialog box. \015\012Result: I managed to work around and select the 917sw driver from the disk, which was installed. However it still does not list the 1440 x 900 resolution. \015\012\015\012I have a clearer image using the "Default" display and the Microsoft default driver.\015\012\015

\015\012However, I am wondering about a few things that may help you. the video settings that you are referring to in your description are dictated by the software that drives the video card, not the monitor.
\015\012
\015\012Are you sure you have the latest Manufacturer's drivers for your video card?
\015\012
\015\012I don't see any mention of the video card here.
