    Have you tried manually downloading and installing the driver from Asus?

    As long as its working, generally not a problem. Usually you can change settings Via the OCD.

    Or as Bevy posted, look to see if there are any drivers from ASUS. You'll need to enter the model number HERE

    You can always go into updates and security and tell it to check for updates.

    As mentioned it's likely not an issue, but I'd just add this can be a symptom of not having the right graphics card driver installed.
    Anther thing that sometimes causes it are adapters, although it doesn't make a lot of sense some monitors won't identify if plugged in via an adapter.
    All that really matters is the resolution and refresh rates being set correctly though.

    It works fine, but just wondering why.

    There is no driver on the Asus site, only "MultiFrame" software.
    Have tried that but doesn't help.

    Update doesn't help either

    Model is VG278HV

    OPPS sorry Driftwwood, Should have been OSD - On Screen Display.

    Been doing some reading on another few forums and OCD was mentioned several times - So guess it kind of stuck

    I see a few similar issues posted on google.
    Strange it is listed correctly under devices & printers, also under connected devices.

    it used to be that the monitor "drivers" weren't a driver at all, just an ini with max res & refresh.

    Not sure if thats still the case with modern displays & Win10

    Just wondering, are you connecting via VGA, DVI or other ?

    What type of cable?
    To get 144 kHz requires DP or HDMI apparently
