    I have Windows7 ultimate with a Sapphire Radeon HD5850, originally set up on
    a friends Acer monitor, now using my Viewsonic VX2435WM monitor.

    The Viewsonic ideal res is 1920x1080 and the HD5850 is very capable of that
    resolution which worked fine on the Acer monitor, however when I plug in the
    Viewsonic I can no see the task bar (or the icons on the left) unless I
    reduce the resolution down to 1776x1000 which gives me a very fuzzy image.

    The Viewsonic setting do not permit me to adjust the image size (the control
    to do that is greyed out)

    Any ideas anyone?

    There are quite some problems with Windows 7 and
    resolutions/refreshrates of various monitors (actualy, most of them).
    Windows 7 refuses to read the EDID file from the monitor which includes
    all res/refresh rates the monitor is capable of displaying and replaces
    that in most cases with a Windows Generic PnP type of monitor with a
    very limited EDID.
    I have a IIyama Vision Master Pro 454 (still a CRT) with modelnr. is
    HM903DTB.
    This modelnumber is recognised by Windfows device monitor but instead of
    using the monitors driver, it uses his own Windows Generic PnP driver.
    I'm even unable to update the driver because that option is greyed out.
    Also, a lot of other monitor options are greyed out as well.
    Everything worked fine under XP (and still does) but under Windows 7
    it's another story.

    Just Google a bit for Windows 7 Monitor Resolution Refreshrate and
    you'll be amazed what has been written already about it.

    You mean to say that Windows 7 and most monitors don't work out of the box?

    LOL! I guess Win 7 has problems with hardware after all.

    Not sure if that is true....I am using the AMD Windows 7 driver and notice
    on the web that others with other video card and monitor combinations are
    having problems. I would have thought the GPU boys would have it sorted by
    now if it were ALL down to them.

    I don't know if the monitor manufacturers have any input to make, but I have
    used the Windows/Microsoft installed driver, a generic driver and the
    Viewsonic driver all to no avail

    What, the video card? Probably not.

    I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, even after plonking your other
    nyms, but you seem to be filling this group up rapidly with your non
    sequitur remarks, so. . .

    Plonk! Catch you on your next nym!

    I rarely change nyms but your drama queen plonking is only a sign that
    you've been refuted so you run and hide.

    I have a ViewSonic VX2835 with a res of 1920 x 1200 that works just fine
    on Windows 7 which found the correct driver right out of the box.
    Try loading the driver using the CD that came with the monitor.

    *BULLSHIT* I have two 28" LCD computer monitors from two different
    manufactures and both Vista and Windows 7 found the correct drivers
    right out of the box for the proper res of 1920 x 1200.

    Load the correct drivers and if there are none available use
    compatibility mode.

    I did and I see most having problems with LCD TV res. I run two Win 7's
    on large screen LCD TV's and have to adjust the res using the ATI card
    settings.

    Take a look at the Ubuntu forums and see how many problems are posted about
    that INFERIOR OS. I guess Ubuntu has problems with hardware all the time.
    No wonder, Ubuntu is SHIT.

    Frank,

    I have everything working right now but don't think you know everything
    because you don't have a problem.
    It's not down to graphicscard hardware or drivers, it's Windows 7 that's
    causing this problem. Just google and you have prove. I recon you don't
    even know what i am talking about or what an EDID file is.

    LOL, if the above is your input i suggest you join Alias (regarding at
    the topics you both destroy i recon you already did...).


    @Alias: Shut the fuck up. Your input is not needed, nor of any help.

    I haven't had any problems with hardware and I've done dozens of
    installs. I suspect the people who are posting these problems on the
    Ubuntu forums are Microsoft plants. You're probably one of them.

    NOW, back to the subject at hand which you tried to avoid with your
    usual straw man. Both you and the Frankenmonster say Windows 7 has no
    problems with hardware. You lied.

    My, the nymshifter pulled on of his other debate tactics: an ad hominem

    Just because you haven't had any hardware problems, doesn't mean thousands
    of other saps don't. Quite a few do have issues yet you don't believe
    anyone could have an issue with Ubuntu.

    I never said that Windows 7 never had issues with hardware. Actually, I had
    an old nVidia card that was not Windows 7 friendly, so I put a new card in
    and everything worked just fine.
