Drivers cannot be loaded...windows does not recognize monitor

Hi, After a computer crash..I have not been able to reinstall my monitor. The drivers do not load from the Viewsonic CD..manual option does not work either. On the device manager I have Yellow ? against "PCI device" and "Video controller (VGA Compatible)". I have downloaded the signed and unsigned drivers from the Viewsonic website for this monitor....no luck!!
The monitor does not show up on the Hardware manager, and windows has just loaded some pathetic generic monitor drivers. So theres no multimedia.

Kindly help.
Warm regards,

Pat Tobin

I think after your crash you are missing the drivers for your graphics card and not the display. Check what kind of graphics device you have and see if you can find the drivers for that.

Hp vista and monitor hp2509 was working fine. i uninstalled monitor driver but now computer starts fine but monitor goes blank


Monitor drivers are built into windows OS, you can't uninstall the driver unless you went to devise MGR, monitor, and opened proprieties and hit uninstall, and even then when you restart windows, it will auto reinstall the hardware. So what you're saying does not make sense.

If you reboot and noting, try a system restore, if you have a windows disk, then run repair. But like I said, you don't install monitor drivers, DVD rom drivers, these are generic drivers that are made into windows. If you think a monitor has a driver that needs installing, explain how people install windows if they couldn't see the monitor.

Only onboard video and graph cards need drivers to run the video at its intended resolution, but it does not need a driver for the monitor, it's built into windows.

The problem is not the LCD monitor; the problem is that the current device-driver for your computer's video-card is a "generic" ("low-resolution") device-driver.

Open "Device Manager".
Expand the "Display Adapter" section.
Double-click the video-card.
Click "update driver" and let Windows access the Internet, to search for a better driver.

New HP desktop goes through Post and starts Win 7 splash screen, then the monitor drops off.

3. In SafeMode head straight to Control Panel - System - Device Manager
4. Remove all drivers under Display Adapters

5. Restart the computer

Hi,

Since you have reinstalled your Operating system you will need to reinstall the Drivers for your Video card, sound card, Modem and other hardwares. You need to install drivers for each and every hardware in your computer. Windows has inbuilt drivers for most of the common hardwares like mouse keyboard modem etc. but for some specific hardwares like Sound card Graphic card, Network card etc. for which Windows cannot load the drivers on its own, we have to install them.
Driver is a set of program which helps your hardware to communicate with the Operating system (e.g: Windows).

For your Dell Monitor E153FP you can download the required drivers from the following site:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?releaseid=R76072&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=99367


Hope this information is helpful to you.

You need to reload the drivers for your video adaptor, or the video hardware of your motherboard.The OS is defaulting back to VGA mode because it can't optimize your display settings without the right driver. It's not the monitor that is the problem, but the signal being fed to it. Not all video cards are recognized and loaded by reinstalling Windows.

Hi There: It sounds to me like it's your video card. Look for the drivers for it. This will usually happen if it is an after market card or the drivers are not on the drivers disk. If you have a disk for it fine. If not go to your device manager and see if it can find drivers for it. The fact the monitor is giving you lo res tells me it is working. It's just getting a lo res from the video card. I hope this helps, Jeff.

Cannot get CPU to recognize Tatung LCD Monitor


When you reinstalled the drivers, did you reinstall the video card drivers? The drivers for your video card should be sufficient to power your display.

Viewsonic monitor not detected after service


Hello,
If you are running DVI-D(the white connector) then it isn't getting a digital handshake. If you have inspected the connection between the 2 and make sure there is no bent pins inside the connector that it mates with. If you have another computer, try to connect to that one.
Open windows start menu, right click on my computer, then choose properties. Next choose Hardware, then Device manager. Once there, double click on display adapters to see if installed correctly. If good, click Monitors. If good, then your video card driver must need reinstall or update as usual. Also do you have the correct driver for you monitor? How does it react when you uninstall the monitor driver(can you select 32bit and higher resolution in default drivers?
If none of this works, I would suspect that the replaced component failed due to static or faulty components within the electronics.
Is there any other changes to the PC (new video card, updated Directx9.0?)

Hope this helps and let me know if I can be of anymore assistance?

If you haven't already done so, you will need to load your graphics drivers again. After reinstalling Windows, you move than likely have to reinstall graphics, audio, and modem drivers again.

My monitor is stuck in the lowest resolution


Distorted video after increasing the resolution in Windows. The resolution has been set higher than what is supported by the monitor, ... we recommend 640 x 480 with 256 colors or the lowest available setting.
Computer always boots into Windows safe mode. When booting into safe mode, the lowest settings are used, including your video card. This means that the resolution is 640x480, 16 colors when in safe mode.
