Re: princeton CD770MCN 17 driver and or setup program

My only suggestion: responsibly recycle that 17-inch CRT, and buy a used 17-inch LCD; around here, the local "government surplus" store is selling 3-year-old 17-inch LCDs for $50, plus taxes.

If it was a "plug-and-play" monitor, then there was _NO_ need for any "drivers" at all, because the monitor would identify which combinations of horizontal/vertical pixels and refresh-rates that it would support.

Princeton VF723 monitor is getting very dark. Brightness control is up full. Do I need a new monitor or maybe just a new driver?

i would start looking for a nice 22" LCD monitor.
Your monitor was manufactured by phillips and this symptom is very common. The crt gun gets week and has low emissions. The vid card driver has very lillte to do with the brightness control. However if your card is one of the newer nvidia or ati cards there are control ls in the software for brightness. color temp. contrast ect. Doesn't hurt to check but my guess is monitor.
Check out a LG or view-sonic for new ones.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...

It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

What is an average life for a Princeton Monitor. My seem to last for a little over two years. This is with daily use for eight to ten hours.

Two years is still new. Your monitor should last several years at least. I say should last, but the manufacturer will give you a 1 year warranty. Basically i year is nothing at all. I've had monitors from a variety of manufacturers and all have lasted at least 5 years and most lasting much longer. The monitors I'm referring to were used in a business and were on a minimum of 10 hours per day. I had some Princeton monitors that lasted equally long. You can complain to the manufacturer, but it may not get you any satisfaction.

You do not need driver for monitor, but you do need driver for video card. You just have to make sure to set the resolution on your computer to the monitor native resolution.

I cannot get the Princeton VL 1716 to stay on the 32 bit color when I reboot.

This problem occurs when the incorrect video driver has been install in the computer. It defaults to generic VGA driver which does not allow any scope to change to a higher screen resolution and a higher bit color setting.
