There are standards, but implementations vary. All Benq FP241Ws should have the same EDID, bar s/n, but it is possible they are therefore all wrong. This appears to be one of the most problematic displays made recenty.

But before attempting to fix an apparent problem with the monitor, make sure it isn't something you've done with the PC: graphics card setting, timing, etc.. Is the PC changing the resolution and/or refresh rate to something other than 1920x1200@60Hz? Etc.
 

Nope. It shows 1920x1200@59Hz (Windows 7) so it should work but it doesn't.

To ensure it is not something on the PC side, you woould need to connect the display to a different computer and ssee if it handles 1920x1200 better and with no adjustmnet. If it does, its your Win7 configuration. If it doesn't, it is probaably the timing in the Benq EDID.

Hello

I know this is an extremely late reply but I'd like to post the solution for this...

I just got one of those really thick dual-link DVI cables and now, it works perfectly fine.

This is the cable I bought:

Hope it helps.

Never too late to post a solution, but are you saying, then, that the cable supplied by Benq is of too poor quality to drive their own monitor?

(You should not need a dual-DVI cable for 1920x1200x60Hz.)

The BenQ cable worked fine before these problems appeared. I bought at least two more DVI cables but they didn't work either. A few weeks ago, I ordered the dual-link cable and now the monitor works flawlessly on DVI.
