Re: unable to install my monitor;no sound, grainy...

You need to install drivers for all your hardware (video card, sound card, modem, etc..) Drivers are a piece of software that tells the computer how to use hardware components, they contain all the instructions a computer needs to turn on and use the components. Do you have a driver disc that came with these parts or the computer itself? If not the only thing I can tell you is find out the make and model of the hardware components, then visit the manufactures web sites for the drivers. Without drivers you computer dosn't know how to operate hardware properbly or at all. It needs them.

Had to replace operating system and now have no sound

This problem is *NOT* related to the 'HP VS17' monitor.

Instead, find the "original" Windows CD-ROM that came with your computer, and reinstall Windows from that media, rather than reinstalling from some other copy of Windows.

The "original" CD-ROM will have the correct audio-device drivers.

If you need, contact the manufacturer of your computer, and order a replacement "System Recovery" set of CD-ROM disks.

Or, find the web-site for the manufacturer of your computer, and enter your series (e.g., "Optiplex" or "Dimension") and model-number, and search for downloadable device-drivers for your "audio" device.

Sounds like you need to download and install a graphics driver for your monitor. I would try using device manager to see if any drivers are missing. right click My Computer > properties > hardware tab > device manager > display adapters. right click and update driver. If that doesnt work, try downloading and installing graphics driver from your PC manufacturer and/or the maker of the monitor.

Re No sound from monitor speakers

Thanks for the info,

Ok heres what I would doo to fix this.....

Get the original disk with the drivers on it and reinstall it.

If you don't have the disk then you will have to ......

(unplug sound card - if its a plug in)
Remove the cables,check for model and make,download from net.
if sound on motherboard then download the model and make also.

You will have to load the downloaded drivers on to a disk.
2.update your device drivers and point the wizard at the disk,

Reboot and that should be it sorted,

Thanks and let me know the outcome,Cheers

check whether you have installed the graphics driver or not ...
if not install it and then you will be able get other resolutions ...
if already installed then try uninstalling and reinstalling driver...

then you will surely be able to get the other resolutions ...

if any problem reply me i am always here to assist you ..

Dear 57pan

Sounds like you have not installed the driver correctly or the driver is corrupt. Please find the driver again for your graphics card/and the monitor's and reinstall.

Unfortunately you dont state the model/maker/windows operating system and cannot help any further with instructions/manuals/driver files.

I hope you can fix this,
Please dont forget to rate this solution if you found it usefull.

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.
