Acer Predator GN246HL Windows 10 driver?

Hello folks,

 

I just bought a Acer Predator GN246HL monitor and I am having an issue installing the drivers for this monitor. Whenever I go into the monitor properties the driver shows up as "Generic PnP Monitor" with a driver dating back to 2006. I installed my GTX 980 without any issues and I can access the Nvidia control panel on Windows 10. Whenever I go into the Nvidia control panel my monitor is listed as "Acer Predator GN246HL" but not when I go into the settings of my monitor itself in "device manager" for example - where its listed as "Generic PnP Monitor". I tried downloading & installing the driver from the website but the message I get is that the monitor ( Generic PnP Monitor) already has the latest driver.

 

Any idea guys?

    I am having the same problem, connected with HDMI, Generic PNP Monitor and this monitor only has incompatible windows 8 drivers, I have windows 10. What should I do?

    I found the answer to this some time ago. It is supposed to be say "Generic PNP Monitor" in Win 10. It´s only a visual "bug"if you can call it that. If you go into the control panel of your graphics card (Nvidia controlpanel" or "AMD Catalyst Control" I think its called -  you should find the name of ur monitor there. If that is the case everything is working fine. So just ignore the "monitor" properties menu.

    Did you really find the solution? Are you running at 144hz as the monitor should allow? I was running a 970(144hz) and swapped to a 1080 but the monitor is now a PnP and im not getting more than 60hz.

    what i figured is During windows update it installed some generic update to monitor display just uninstall and enjoy
