Hi there! I need help. I got a new GTX 960 card, replaced my super old GT 430. Now my problem is, I'm getting generic non pnp.

My monitor doesn't have DVI, so bought a VGAtoDVI.

 

I think that, because of the generic non-pnp I'm getting "out of range" on some games (i need to find .ini or something to manualy adjust reso),

 

 

1. What i did is put back my old GT 430(just VGA, without using dvi converter) and its good again, it shows Benq monitor. and i can only choose not more than 1366x768

 

 

2. When using gtx 960 via DVI converter to vga i got generic pnp, and i can choose a lot of resolution till 2560x1600

 

 

 

i already google a lot before posting it here. such as update latest graphics driver, etc.

need your suggestions thank you.

What monitor do you have? Have you installed the "driver" .inf for it?

The specifications for GL930 show it having DVI input?

I don't know. But it's working fine right now, thanks for the reply. I just use a program to override edid something. I think its the dvi to vga converter. I might buy new monitor soon with hdmi.

Yes, the converter probably doesn't implement DDC, to allow the monitor's EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) to be returned to the driver. But if the monitor has a DVI input the converter is unnecessary anyway.

Converters can be a headache.  Toggling gets the right driver activated.  Good luck finding a monitor with HDMI,  I found it easier to buy a small 1080P HDTV and go HDMI to HDMI.
