I have an Acer2016W monitor which has a native resolution of 1680 × 1050, but that resolution in not listed in the screen settings.
I believe it isn't the fault of the VGA drivers or so, but the very OS. The same monitor was used in its native resolution under windows 7 before without problems. I have dug out information which says I should use a "classic" VGA cable, but my VGA card has no VGA port, only DVI, so I use a VGA-DVI converter. (The monitor only has VGA port.)
What I've tried so far (without any success):
- Refreshed all VGA drivers to the latest version.
- Installed monitor driver (which I never ever had to do on any configs of mine before).
- Downgraded to Windows 7.
- Tried different VGA cables.
I wouldn't throw out an otherwise perfectly working monitor, so I kindly ask for an advice; how to fix this?
