Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If you have used a CRT Monitor and suddenly decided to buy a brand new TFT Monitor, Windows Vista will refuse to accept your new acquisition. Why? Because it thinks that your plug'n play monitor driver is better than the manufacturer driver.
So, what next?
1. You have to go to Device Manager (right click on My Computer, click on Properties, click on Hardware tab, after click on Device Manager button), 2. Expand Monitor
3. Right click on your driver type (usually Plug an Play Monitor), click on Properties
4. Click on Driver tab
5. Click on Update driver button
6. You have to check the following option "Install from a list or specific location", after that hit Next button
7. Here, choose the "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install", click on Next
8. Click on Have Disk button, browsing for the driver where is located (assuming that is on the cd drive)
9. Click on Open button to load the inf file, after that click on Ok button
Now Windows will install the right driver for your monitor
When all is done, you have to click on Finish button, to be sure that the driver is installed.
