Anyone else have any possible solutions I could try?
There's not much anyone cna do unless there is information to work on.
Then please post a screen shot of
and the advanced settings
Post a screen shot of DevMgr > Display > Properties > Detail tab
Post a screen shot of Control Panel Devices & Printers
Please identify the monitor
Please update the Systems Specs in your forum profile with complete information.
- In the System Manufacturer/Model Number field, manually type Desktop or Laptop adding it to the information already in the field. The specific model number is important - there are often many models of a given series.
For example, my machine is a HP Pavilion dv6, but there are tens of the dv6 series, so dv6-6c10us is the specific model.
- Specify Custom Build as the manufacturer if it is not an OEM machine.
The easiest way to do this is to use the information from a PUBLISHED Speccy report.
See: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs
Post the link to the report that Speccy gives you and also open the Speccy link.
Then click here to view your System Specs on this forum.
When you have both windows open, put them side-by-side and simply copy the information, field by field, from the Speccy report to your System Specs.
To see what information other members provide in their System Specs, click on My System Specs in the lower left of any post by any member.

It seems like the problem lies in the vga to hdmi adapter I had to get to connect my old monitor to my PC maybe?
The first thing that popped out when I saw the Devs & Prtrs was the vga-hdmi adapter. That's not to say that it is the cause, but we both thought the same thing.
Is there any other way you can connect the monitor or are you limited to a mismatch between the connections on the box and the monitor?
Also thanks for updating your system specs, other members use that exclusively.
I might not get to this for a while - others might drop by and offer suggestions.

Code:Graphics Card HDMI to VGA (1280x720@60Hz) 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980But with your monitor you should have 1920x1080.Screen Resolution 1280x720
Please make two things sure.
First: The monitor is connected with the Graphics card, not to the motherboard's display ports. I mean, not anywhere here:
Second: You have display driver 368.69 - WHQL installed. Better you install it now.
With both the above conditions fulfilled, restart the computer. See what happens. Let us know.
