ASUS VE245H monitor screen resolution wrong

December 28, 2019 at 18:04:33
Specs: Windows 7
I have an ASUS VE245H monitor that was working fine on a Windows 7 64-bit PC prior to a harddrive failure. I've installed a new harddrive and reinstalled Windows 7. Now the screen resolution is limited to 4:3 aspect ratio options, while the monitor needs 16:9. But the 16:9 ratio isn't available in the display settings. The only software available from ASUS is something called Multiframe, but that doesn't seem to be what I need.

The monitor isn't the problem. You need to install the graphics drivers.

The problem is that the only files ASUS offers are for a program that doesn't seem to be a driver.

Like I said, It has nothing to do with the monitor. You won't find what you need at the ASUS site. You need to install the drivers for your graphics card. Since you said you relaced the HDD, it would mean you had to reinstall Windows from scratch, correct? Have you ever done that before? There are numerous drivers that need to be downloaded & installed - chipset, audio, graphics, network, etc. Windows installs generic drivers to get you going but you need to install the drivers that are specific to your hardware.

Does your computer have an actual video card? Or does it have motherboard or CPU integrated graphics? You need to know the exact make/model so you can download the appropriate drivers from the graphics manufacturer's website (AMD, nvidia, or Intel). Same goes for the rest of the device drivers. If you provide some info about your computer, one of us should be able to point you in the right direction.

Also, being that Win7 expires in a few weeks, why aren't you installing Win10 instead?

I doubt I would be allowed to express my hatred for Windows 10 with sufficient language to be accurate in this forum.

I'll try the graphics card update, thanks.

I'm not a Win10 fan either but it won't be long before Win7 becomes unsafe. There's always Linux.

I use my computer for my work. I don't work for my computer. Linux would require me to spend months learning a new system. I just don't have the time.

As long as you don't connect to the internet with it, you should be fine. But if your computer work includes going online, it will just be a matter of time before the lack of security updates come back to bite you.

"AV-Test.org registered 67.7 million new strains of Windows malware during 2018, and the situation is only likely to get worse, as some security experts believe that malware developers are holding potential Windows 7 exploits back, ready to unleash them as soon as support ends."

"AV-Test.org registered 67.7 million new strains of Windows malware during 2018..."

The differences between most of those "strains" must be trivial,
such as containing different randomly-generated text strings.

The important part of that statement is the 2nd half... "security experts believe that malware developers are holding potential Windows 7 exploits back, ready to unleash them as soon as support ends."
