Re: No Driver

You can use the .icm file from the Vista driver by manually going into driver update and pointing to the location wher you extracted it to. This however probaly won't fix your issue however, as the problem is more than likely that your videocard doesn't support the 1440 x 900 resolution.

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.

Need driver download have new tower and lost CD for monitor X2GEN model MG19MY

Most monitors do not need additional drivers for them to function properly in Windows XP, Vista, and 7. If you are not able to set the monitors native resolution then look at your video card drivers. If these are not up to date, then you can see some very odd default resolutions.

I am looking for a monitor driver for Windows Vista for LT1919

Windows XP and Vista should "auto-detect" the capabilities of this LCD screen.

If not, access
and scan for updates.
When the scan is done, look for "optional hardware" updates.
If Microsoft has a driver, it will be offered for download.

When I boot into Windows Vista Premium nothing on screen

In Safe Mode, your monitor will not be listed as it is using a generic device driver for basic display. Go into your video settings and reset it to the lowest resolution available. Reboot the computer into Vista again and your display should be working. If you check Device Manager now, you should see your monitor listed. If it isn't, you will need to load the Vista drivers for it. You can then modify your display settings to suit your preferences.

Drive not instlled

When you bought you monitor there should be a drver CD for the monitor. If you have the CD, pu it in the CD_rom and then if you;re using Windows XP it will automatically open for drive installation. The PC will automatically detect a new hardware and will ask for the driver.The installation wizard will open and you just follow the instruction. Remember the drive is in the CD-rom. Choose CD-rom for drive location.

Blurred pictures on monitor

The problem is not the monitor, it is the display adapter (Video card) of your system needs a valid Vista driver. (NVidia, ATI and Intel are the 3 largest Graphic card manufacturers) Monitor drivers are almost never needed except on some advanced large LCDs.

You said up upgraded to Vista, did you use a Vista upgrade DVD or just perform a clean installation of Vista? Have you installed Vista Chipset drivers? The chipset and Graphics drivres may not be native to Vista, you may need to install them.

Cannot find drivers for product.

Hannspree said that there is no need for a separate driver for XP and suggested I check for an updated driver for my old NVIDIA Video card... That was the answer. I now get the full 1400X900 resolution.
