I don't know if that's the problem you're seeing, but it's not supposed to happen if the pin is present and the monitor has an EDID.

You might be better off getting an HDMI-VGA converter to work around the problem, or use an NVIDIA card. I don't think AMD cares about fixing VGA bugs anymore. It might work with an older driver. I think 15.7 is the oldest driver that supports the R7 360: https://support.amd.com/en-us/download/d...4&rev=15.7

Make sure to use DDU first to uninstall the newer driver: https://www.wagnardsoft.com/display-driv...aller-ddu-

The old Catalyst drivers also had an option to ignore the EDID and set the maximum resolution and refresh rate manually for VGA connections.

Yep, I know the bug (some years worked as repair man, some Sony G models had corrupt EDID due to faulty cable or faulty chip; to be sure checked with another cable with higher quality and with all pins) and it is here without removing the pin

Anyway I managed to fix it at 119Hz, but still trying to loop but rarely (a couple of tests with games), and again checked EDIDs of monitors if the bytes 35-53 are ok by the standard

Edit: After the fiasco with versions after starting 18.x driver line I'm sure AMD was so hardly cornered that they just give it a go and added "Switch driver" option ... So professional
