  1. Your monitor driver is located at c:\windows\systems32\drivers\monitor.sys.
    You probably need a video card driver.
    What is the make/model of your video card?
  2. Hello mmotta,

    Have you checked compatibility?
    Just an FYI for you.
    It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
    Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx
    There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
    There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx
    In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
    As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.
    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.
    Thanks again,

    The video card is Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT
    I do have the latest driver, just rechecked.

    The problem seems to be that Soyo's web site is permanently down, can not get a driver from them. I have read threads they are out of business??
    Can not seem to get a proper driver for this monitor, so am stuck with generic windows deiver, and lower resolution.

    Thanks for the above, but the problem appears to be that SOYO's web site is permanently down, and no one can get any updates. Thus when i went to windows 7, my monitor is stuck with a windows generic driver, of low resolution. It apperas from my google searching no one else can get an update either.
