E2442tc driver


A monitor being identified as "Generic Plug & Play" is normally fine. LG does not have a driver listed on their website, so there probably isn't one anyway. Most monitors work very similarly, and Windows knows this. Hence the Generic Plug & Play device driver. Unless there is a problem, don't worry about it, that is perfectly normal.

Lg driver download


If you're talking about using an LG TV as a computer monitor, the generic display driver will suffice. I've never seen any noticeable improvement on display or features when Windows displays the monitor correctly or as a generic. If your resolution is too low and you couldn't increase it, the problem is likely your resolution setting or video card driver, not your monitor driver.

We are tring to hook up our projector to our laptop.


Nice! Putting your *generic* laptop on a *generic* projector can look awesome for movies, gaming or just surfing. It all depends on the connection you use.

To make the connection, you need to choose a cable that both the *generic* laptop and the *generic* projector support. Here's the common ones, in order of awesome (most to least):
HDMI,
DVI,
RGB/VGA,
Component,
S-Video,
Composite

Of course, with adapters you can basically connect any of these types into any other type.

So now you've connected them both, but there's no picture! Don't fret; there's still more to do. First, make sure the *generic* projector is on the right input channel. Use your remote or the buttons on the *generic* projector itself to turn to it.

Then you have to set up the *generic* laptop. Many different laptops these days will let you just press the "FN" key along with the "F5" key to switch to projector mode. Pressing it again will switch which type of mode it's in (duplicate, extend or projector only). You can also do this in your computer settings, though.

On Windows 7:
"Windows Key" + "P".
-or-
Start Menu > Control Panel. If Control Panel is in Classic View, go to Display > Adjust Resolution(it's on the left side toolbar). Otherwise, click on "Adjust Screen Resolution" under the Appearances and Personalization category. Click on the second monitor, then make a selection from the "Multiple Displays" option.

On Windows Vista:
Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Display Settings > Monitor (it's a tab). Select the second display from the Display drop-down menu then check the box for "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

On Windows XP:
Right-click the desktop > Properties > Settings (it's a tab). Select the second display from the Display drop-down menu, then check the box for "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

On Mac:
It's already set up! Seriously, it's plug and play; very awesome. To change the mode (mirroring/duplicate, extended), goto Display Preferences > Arrangement.

On Linux:
I have no idea, so I Googled it for you. You're welcome.

There! Your *generic* laptop is now connected to your *generic* projector. Enjoy your gaming/videos/web browsing/etc!

I cant download the driver for the Acer X203H Monitor without Windows Vista... I dont have Vista


I see from the Acer web site what you are saying is true.....you might try just setting it up as plug and play monitor. Your current operating system should be able to assign a generic driver so it will function....just a thought.
