This is kind of internal and external, so I hope this is the right forum.
One of my computers is a Dell Optiflex 790, running Windows 7. It has built-in Intel HD graphics. I was using a 1920x1068 monitor on it. Now I've moved that monitor to another computer and got out a Samsung Syncmaster 192N for this computer. The Samsung has a max resolution of 1280x1024. The computer doesn't detect it, saying just "generic PNP monitor". And the only resolutions available are 1280x1024 and 1366x768 - both larger than the max resolution of the monitor. At one time in the past, I did have a 1280x1024 monitor correctly working on this computer.
I've tried things like turning everything off and restarting, search for hardware changes, and update drivers. I downloaded the Syncmaster driver, but it says that something is missing from the inf file. I don't know what else to do.
How can I fix this problem?
Added - I downloaded the latest graphics driver directly from Intel, but that didn't fix the problem.
More: And the owner's manual says the max resolution is:
Up to 2048x1536 @ 75Hz (VGA only)
And another try:
I uninstalled the monitor in Device Manager and rebooted. No change.
And I have a similar computer that also has Intel built-in graphics. It detects it as "generic", but it gives a wide choice of resolutions - in contrast to only two possible resolutions for this computer.
And I tried a similar monitor, but HP instead of Samsung - same thing with it.
