  New monitor, settings greyed out? 
 Date Written

I cannot figure out how to get some settings to become available on this new Asus ML238H. They are just greyed out with no way to access them. The monitor looks terrible at these default settings.

Sharpness, Aspect Control, ASCR, Position, Focus, Saturation, Skin Tone are all NOT available...

I know I could make the monitor look 100x better if they were. I never had this issue on my MS238H. Does anyone know why it's doing this or has heard of something like this? I've tried changing every setting on the monitor and no-go :(

Are those settings on the monitor's internal OSD/OSM (On Screen Display/Menu) where you use the display's hardware buttons to make adjustments, or are they settings you're trying to adjust from within a control program or driver (like Catalyst or Windows "Display Properties")?

edit to add:
If they're from within a program, it might not be the display itself that the program's settings are for, but the graphics adapter. Or you might need to verify the display drivers (if not using the Microsoft generic drivers) are installed and working properly. If you tried to install new display or graphics adapter drivers, you need to make sure they did in fact install properly. It may also be necessary to uninstall the graphics programs/drivers (especially Catalyst) and use a driver removal tool to get the last bits removed, and then reinstall them. Make sure any support software is also installed/up-to-date (like .NET framework) if such is needed. (example, I just had to push .NET up to 3.5 for something (can't remember what it was off-hand)).
