The monitor driver only tells the video card which video resolutions are supported by the monitor. The video card is probably set to the wrong resolution. You can boot into safe mode, set the screen resolution to one the monitor supports, and you should be good to go. You don't actually "need" a monitor driver.
Monitor drivers are built into windows OS, you can't uninstall the driver unless you went to devise MGR, monitor, and opened proprieties and hit uninstall, and even then when you restart windows, it will auto reinstall the hardware. So what you're saying does not make sense.
If you reboot and noting, try a system restore, if you have a windows disk, then run repair. But like I said, you don't install monitor drivers, DVD rom drivers, these are generic drivers that are made into windows. If you think a monitor has a driver that needs installing, explain how people install windows if they couldn't see the monitor.
Only onboard video and graph cards need drivers to run the video at its intended resolution, but it does not need a driver for the monitor, it's built into windows.
Hi I am sorry that the Monitor is going to sleep mode. Are you experiencing the same issue with different Tower or CPU? Turn OFF the monitor and power cycle it after a minute and check if the same issue persists. Also, reinstall the Video Driver.
I just purchased the Acer X233h widescreen monitor. I picked it up at Staples for 139. They had a sale on it. Not sure what normal price is. Anyway I couldn't be happier with the monitor. 40,000:1 contrast ratio and can run in full HD, 1920x1080. I will be using a Xbox 360 with the hdmi to dvi conversion to take full advantage of the HD. Regardless of not being in HD. The monitor is great for a lot of computing needs. Also I went from the Samsung Syncmaster 740N. Which is a 17" monitor. Going from that size to a 23" widescreen is a huge difference and watching movies is a better experience. Check it out for sure. Hope this helps!!
Change to a higher resolution. If you have a widescreen monitor, your resolution should be something like 1600 X 900 or a similar widescreen format. It sounds like you have a standard format resolution on a widescreen monitor. Play around with your display settings, when you change a setting, it gives you 15 seconds to agree to the change or it will reset to its original resolution before the change, so play around until you find one you like. You can always re-arrange your desktop icons after you get the resolution the way you want.
