Many brands and models of computer devices are not automatically recognized, because they're not included in the OS database (which sometimes is updated). Without knowing the OS you're using, it's helpful to use the most current drivers, matched to your OS.
Just in case you didn't have the available drivers, here's a link to them on the AOC website:

I hope this helps!

My computer wont reconize my monitor?

Hello there ,
I am presuming you have a PC with Windows xp or 7 and have just connected a 'different' monitor. If not, then I misuderstood your question.
Normally, the default Windows Display Drivers are fine and you can change resolution etc.
1) If what you are saying is that when you plug in and leave plugged in, the monitor you have NO display, then do the following.. Go to Control Panel, then system then device manager, Find the 'Display adapter' highlight it left click then right click, UNINSTALL. Do the same for anything in device manager for any 'monitors'. RESTART the PC and windows should find the correct display adapter and monitor installed to your machine, Whatever happens you WILL see something on the monitor if it is working. If not, then your monitor is kaput.(broken).
2) If what you are saying is that the monitor IS showing displays and that windows doesn't 'recognise' your specific Monitor. Then you must go to the Monitor Manufacturers website Go to 'support' for your Model of Monitor and find the correct Driver for your monitor and version of Windows. Download it and install and you should be fine.
Sorry it souds long winded but this should help you sort it out.

Why can I not use 2560x1080 (only 1920x1080)?

DisplayPort is supposed to support very high resolutions and unless they really compromised the hardware in the monitor, it's unlikely that the DisplayPort input isn't supporting the resolution.

A note about "drivers": Monitors used to come with "drivers" back in the Windows 98 days. Monitors never actually had "drivers". The monitor is a totally separate entity that only receives image signals from the computer. The so-called "drivers" were actually information files that told the computer (and its display system) what resolutions the monitor was capable of. In all Windows versions after XP, monitors have been able to identify themselves over the advanced display interfaces and the Windows databases have included all monitors. Today, Windows 7 and 8 dynamically search their online "Windows Update" service for more information files if they encounter a new monitor. Suffice to say, if your system identifies the monitor by name and model number, it has all the information it needs about the monitor.

Unfortunately, the more likely possibility is that the display system ("video card" or onboard video chipset) in your system doesn't support 2560 resolution via DisplayPort. If it doesn't, all the cable adapters in the world aren't going to help you. Go look up the specs of your computer on the manufacturer's web site and it'll list the particulars of the display system (at least the make and exact chipset model number). If the computer specs don't list the supported resolutions, then go look up that manufacturer's chipset info and see what the supported resolutions are under DisplayPort. Alternatively, post detailed make/model info for your computer here and we can help you find the necessary information.

If the display adapter supports it, DisplayPort straight through (no cable adapters) will be your best bet in displaying it. But if the Windows display adapter properties resolution selector doesn't list it (and it identifies your monitor by correct make and model), then you may be out of luck.

Answer some of the questions I've posed here about computer and video adapter models and we'll help you verify the truth about your display system.

Dell 1907fp USB port not working

The big question is do you have the USB uplink cabled from the monitor, connected to a USB port on the system?

Item #5 needs to be connected to your system's USB port via a USB cable. The ports on the monitor are just a USB hub.
