Driver software not installing - and screen res wrong

I've just bought a 28" HG281 Monitor.

I'm trying to use it with a laptop with Windows Vista, but it makes everything ridiculously wide. I've tried adjusting the resolution, but there isn't one that's wide enough - 1600x1200 is the closest.

I suspect I need the driver software, but when I try to install it, I get an error message. Nothing very specific - just that ins has stopped working and windows is looking for a solution.

Any suggestions?

SOURCE: connection problems??

Check all power connections and surge arrestors to the ON position. Or if possible, try hooking up the monitor to a different source. You can use for instance, a laptop, some dvd players using s-video, etc. If the monitor works, then try a different video card. When buying components for assembly at home, it's not uncommon for them to arrive unoperational or DOA. Use a reputable dealer that has a good return policy. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Cannot go over 1600x1200 resolution

did you get info with the graphics card? not all can go high some are lower resolution for reasons.
and be aware that monitors can not go up in resolution forever they have a max limit so based on frequency you are using you may only get 1600 x 1200 1650 x 1080 is as high as this card will go it is listed on the side bar here under editors choice.
based on monitors freq settings you may need to adjust that to get to the max

SOURCE: monitor wont support 1600x1200 resolution

I had a similar problem recently, green bar down middle which became "scratchy" and would come and go. I fixed (I hope) by unplugging the plug to the internal LCD panel assembly, cleaning with IPA, and re-plugging. All the covers and metal shields had to come off to do this though, a bit of a pain, and risky to the front of the panel.

Or it could be a timing issue, I know the L2035 only likes to be fed the right graphics "timings" over DVI and VGA. If out, you'll end up with an offset picture that can't be fixed by adjusting position in the monitor's menu. Re-set to standard graphics driver timings and it goes away.

Please choose the graphic card model in selection box.

Remember also to choose your windows system.

My advice is to uninstall all the the old software, before you install the new.

Try to change the screen resolution, when the installation is done.

Good luck

Driver for iphone4 code 28


Important: Device Manager error codes are exclusive to Device Manager. If you see the Code 28 error elsewhere in Windows, chances are it's a system error code which you should not troubleshoot as a Device Manager issue. Cause of the Code 28 Error A Code 28 error is caused by a missing driver for that particular piece of hardware. There are any number of reasons that a driver might not be installed for a device but your troubleshooting of the problem will be the same no matter the root cause.
Error Code 28 Troubleshooting
  1. Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

    There is always the slim chance that the Code 28 error you're seeing in Device Manager was caused by a fluke with Device Manager or in your BIOS. If that's the case, a reboot might fix the Code 28.

  2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before you noticed the Code 28? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 28 error.

    Undo the change, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 28 error.

    Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:

  3. Update the drivers for the device. Installing the latest manufacturer supplied drivers for a device with the Code 28 error is the most likely solution to the problem.

    Important: Make sure you install the drivers for the correct operating system. For example, if you're using Windows 7 32-bit, install the drivers designed for that specific version of Windows. Many Code 28 errors are caused by attempting to install the wrong drivers for a device.

  4. Install the latest Windows service pack. Microsoft regularly releases service packs and other patches for their operating systems, one of which may contain a fix for the cause of the Code 28 error.

    Note: I do know that certain service packs for Windows Vista and Windows 2000 have contained specific fixes for some instances of the Code 28 error in Device Manager.

  5. Replace the hardware. As a last resort, you may need to replace the hardware that has the Code 28 error.

    It's also possible that the device is not compatible with this version of Windows. You can check the Windows HCL to be sure.

    Note: If you still think there is still a software/operating system component to this Code 28 error, you could try a repair install of Windows. If that doesn't work, try a clean install of Windows. I don't recommend doing either of those more drastic options before you try replacing the hardware, but you may have to if you're out of other options.
Please let me know if you've fixed a Code 28 error using a method that I don't have above. I'd like to keep this page as updated as possible.

You can try to install Webcam driver. You've not mentioned your OS; i think you use Windows 7. But HP only support Vista. You can give a try to download and install Vista driver. In most cases it solves the problem.

Try tapping f8 when you start your computer and when at the MS startup menu choose
  • Enable low resolution video (640x480)
  • and if windows starts update your video driver and that should fix the problem, when you restart more than once the options go back to default (not low res video,whatever video driver is installed)
