Ok. I looked at the AOC site that you went to for the drivers. The drivers come in a ZIP package. Did you extract the files from the ZIP folder or did you point the computer to the ZIP file? The computer probably wont see the files inside the ZIP unless they are extracted first. There are three files inside the folder. The .inf file should trigger the driver load.
Go to System, on the top bar, then Preferences and select Monitors. On the Monitor Preference screen there will be different resolution settings that you can choose. If there are any resolution settings higher than 800X600 like 1024X768 etc. select it and apply.
If there is no other settings available go to System then Administration and select Additional driver. When the Additional drivers screen appears check if it recommends a a driver to be downloaded. If it does, download the driver and then you will be able to get higher screen resolutions.
If there is no additional driver to download it gets a bit tricky. You will need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. The file will look someting like this:
It will be wise to make a backup of this file if you are going to edit it. (xorg.conf.old) Inside the file you will see your screen and its resolution. (Preferred mode) You need to change the resolution, save the file and restart your session. If all went well your resolution will be set to what you specified, if your display freaks out replace the xorg.conf file with the xorg.conf.old file.
This is usually fixed in the settings for your graphics card. Are you running Windows or Linux?
If Windows: You can load up the drivers for the monitor (I never do) or choose to hardwire the monitor to a VGA LCD 1024x768 and then even force the vertical refresh to 75Hz (or something nice). Try that.
In Linux (under Xwindows), you'll need to look at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if using that) and change the section for the monitor to include the limits as shown above.
Do a "man xorg.conf" for the parms. They're also on Xorg's website.
Are you running linux?? do you know how to use linux?
Open a terminal and as root type:
nano /etc/X11/xorg.confor type:sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.confif your not root user. You should be able to find the line that says shmconfig and change it to true. save the file and restart the computer.
Adjust it on your monitor they are not all quitte the same but there must be a button there.Use adjust horizontal if you can find it. First find your Monitor manual.Then find where it mention something about HorizSync and VertRefresh. Next open the terminal: Code: sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Go to the Section "Monitor" and add the correct HorizSync and HorizSync
CAUTION: Make sure it's correct it can damage your monitor if you use incorrect numbers! save and exit. Reboot.
