Default Acer S243HL, Screen problems. HD

im running a core i7, 5850, 6G ddr3 ram, win 7. i just got this new screen Acer S243HL. its being connected via a VGA to DVI connector. it ran fine straight out the box in full HD, but the next day i turned it on it wasnt in HD, there is no HD option in the screen res to make it HD again. got any ideas? btw driver are the last.

I assume you mean DVI to VGA.

Is the monitor being detected properly?

Reinstall your drivers, making sure to wipe them first.

Is the monitor detected?

Like with the model # displayed
Or does it simply say 'plug and play monitor'?

No it isn't.

Do you have a DVI cable?

Try a different DVI port on the video card.

Do you happen to have an HDMI cable to test with?

It could be the monitor, we just need to rule the good one out.

Try removing the video card and using the onboard video.
