BenQ G2400WD pc monitor
Panasonic P42G20 Plasma TV
ATI 5770 GPU
Denon 1910 Receiver
I'v had to google a lot to make this setup work, but I have managed to get it to work pretty much perfectly over these 2-3 years I have owned these devices.
Until yesterday happened. So I had my 2 displays in extended display state. My primary monitor is always BenQ. I accidentaly removed the power cable of the BenQ while it was still on. This caused all my current problems. First off I think my PC now thinks the primary monitor is my Panasonic. Secondly my pc won't recognize my pc monitor as BenQ. If I right click on desktop and go to screen resolution I can see DENON-AVAMP (Panasonic TV) and Device on DVI -monitor. It doesnt say BenQ like it should say. So what have I done to try and make this go away?
I tried reinstalling drivers first, did everything by the book. Nothing
I tried reading about EDID files for monitors. I downloaded moninfo and tried to grab the BenQ EDID info, but it is unable to recognize it.
I tried to run my pc monitor with the corrupt (atleast I think it's corrupt at this point) EDID for my Panasonic TV and recycle the primary-secondary monitors around. Nothing there either.
I tried to reinstall windows (formatted my HDD), but even after the clean install regedit has the corrupt monitor EDID. I can't delete it.
I tried to "clone" the displays, but it will only result in a dramatic drop in resolution for both displays (down to 640x480). I think its, because the BenQ's correct resolutions aren't recognized so it won't run it in higher resolutions.
I dunno if I'm making any sense, but this problem just doesnt go away. As of right now I have both displays running @ 1080p. The setup is at the state where it was right after the problem appeared. I don't know what to do with these devices / software. Do I have to buy new hardware to make this go away or is there still a way to fix this? I would like to know that.
Please help me in this difficult task! Thank you in advance.
