    DVI good VGA bad


    I need to move my main display to VGA from the current DVI ( there is a good reason for this but the explanation is long )
    But im having several issues with this
    On DVI the system (Win8.1) recognizes the monitor and i have 1920 as an option
    When i switch to VGA it goes to generic and i dont have 1920
    I tried installing the driver but still nothing
    Maybe there is an issue because i have 2 DVI outlets on my graphics card and i connected the DVI and VGA cables on them separately!? Maybe somehow windows is in love with the old one!?
    My monitor is an ASUS PA238
    My graphics card radeon r7 somthing



    ( i hope this is in the correct forum...i didnt see any forum for displays )

    Last drivers for those series of cards are 14.a2 "Omega", do you have "AMD Catalyst Control Center" ? If you do turn off "EDID" and set frequency at 60 MHz.

    I have a Radeon R7 240x card and have both DVI and VGA cables attached, each to a separate panel, and each of the panels does 1920 without problems.

    NO ... just telling you the problem is not native to Radeon R7 video cards.
