Windows 7 should automatically install device drivers for the Audio, Video and Network, If you are unable to find/download a device driver that works on your computer and your computer is connected to the Internet then - 1. Remove the driver that isn't working if it was installed.
2. Set Win-7 "Windows Device Installation" to 'AUTO'
3. Windows will automatically search the internet for the driver.
4. Reboot your computer.

Hi, my laptop crashes when the ac adaptor is plugged in yet it will charge the battery fine when the laptop is shut down.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

My view sonic monitor is turned on and then in a few minutes it turns off leaving me a black screen. what can i do to fix it?


Sounds like overheating of something inside. Open the monitor, get access to PCBs and observe for darkened areas especially over the power supply and inverter. Also that long working before shut down may tell about bad solder junction, also caused by constant local overheating - look for those with tiny cracks, especially over darkened areas on PCBs.
Most likely - that's the source of problem with your monitor. And, as far as you open the monitor, check for any popped electrolytic capacitor - never bad to replace them too.

This usually happens when switching from a CRT to an LCD monitor. If your monitor is new and you are connecting for the first time, reconnect to the old monitor, set the resolution to its lowest setting (usually 800 x 600), shut the machine down, plug in the new monitor and boot the desktop to watch the screen.

If you are unfamiliar with how to change the resolution, here are the steps to do so:

1. Right-click on the desktop
2. Select Properties
3. In the Settings tab, click and drag the Screen Resolution option to its furthest left position.
4. Click Apply and OK.

If this doesn't fix the problem, it's likely that there is a driver conflict. If you still have the old monitor, or if you have another CRT available, boot up again when connected to the CRT and perform the following steps to remove the old drivers from the machine:

1. Click Start
2. Right-click My Computer
3. Select Manage
4. Select Device Manager
5. Expand Monitors
6. Right click on the monitor you wish to uninstall and select "Uninstall"
7. If there are any other entries, uninstall those, as well.

Then shut your machine down, plug in the LCD monitor and boot the machine.

If the above mentioned steps don't help, try switching the type of cable used to connect the monitor to the desktop. If you are currently using a VGA cable, try switching to DVI (depending on how old your graphics card is this option might not be available). If using DVI, try switching to VGA.

If the LCD monitor manages to work, I would recommend you verify the proper drivers are installed. To do this:

1. Click Start
2. Right-click My Computer
3. Select Manage
4. Select Device Manager
5. Expand Monitors
6. Right click on the monitor you wish to update the drivers for and select "Update Driver" (you will need to be connected to the Internet for the automatic update to work)
7. Select "Yes, this time only" and click Next
8. Leave the default option selected on the next screen and click Next.

If the automatic driver update finds no match for the hardware, you may need to download the driver and install it manually. Click HERE to download the driver for your monitor.

Save the file to your desktop and extract the file to your desktop. In Device Manager, right click on the Acer monitor and select Update Driver.

Select "Yes, this time only" and click Next.
Select the Advanced option on the next screen and click Next.

Check the checkbox next to "Include this location in the search:"

Click Browse.
Minimize any option currently expanded and search for the recently extracted folder underneath "Desktop".

Expand it and select the folder inside.
The OK button should now be available. Click OK and click Next.

The driver should install and your monitor should function normally from that point forward.

If none of those options work, you might want to think about opening a support case with Acer or returning the monitor for one that is comparable.

I hope I was able to help you! If you have any questions, please feel free to respond.

when you say you have it plugged into the on-board video output.. does that mean there is a graphics card installed too? used to be graphics card installed? if there is or was then its possible that there is a bois setting that tells your computer to use the existent or non-existent graphics card. either was your onboard is going to shut down. This is one theory.. but since its is turning off once you get to your desk top the more likely reason is that its software based and you either have the wrong resolution, driver, or refresh rate selected to use when windows boots. Toy around with diffrent resolutions, refresh rates, also if you have a graphics card plug it into that. your on board most certinly will not be enabled if you have a graphics card.

VGA MODE in vista:

Restart the computer and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once per second. At the selection screen, use the up/down keys to select "Enable VGA Mode", then press the "Enter" key.. If it works, it will bring up the basic VGA drivers in "normal" Windows and should allow you to install the Vista compatible drivers for your new card. After installing the new drivers, restart the computer and if it remains in VGA, you should then be able to adjust the resolution, etc. from the "Display Properties".

No driver appearing in Vista


Sorry this is late but:

Unplug the monitor from the PC and then boot.
after you hear the windows starting sound wait for it to load everything up (say 1 min) and plug in the monitor

Windows then plays the "i have found an unknown device" sound and begins to search for drivers

Wait 5 min for it to do this and then shut down the computer with the power button.
Re boot

Monitor should work.

Note: you must be connected to the net for this to work.
