You need to remove the standard windows monitor driver in the device manager and reinstall the monitor driver. Search in google and download the driver and install it.
Good hunting.

SOURCE: windows detected my monitor as generic non pnp

This tends to indicate that the monitor isn't conveying it's specific information to the PC. This usually happens if the driver for the video card isn't quite right or is all together wrong.
You aren't getting bi-directional communication from the VGA card (yes, they actually do RECEIVE as well as send signals).
Look to your video card driver, and make sure it's the right one for the operating system you are using, and also that it's updated.

Windows detected my monitor as generic non pnp monitor and when i installed the inf file for lg monitor and updated and rebound to generic non pnp monitorit says device on vga and when i


Hi,
I see you are having issues with you LG monitor.
What type of video card do you have on your computer? if I may ask.
And also did the LG Monitor come with a disc to install the Monitor.
The VGA means it is using VGA a a mode or type of cable connection for the Video, what cable are you using? are you using an HDMI connection for the Monitor/LCD or is it the Blue Cable on both ends if it is the Blue Cable then that is using VGA so it will say on VGA meaning it detects the video connection from that cable.
Are you asking because this shows every time you turn the LCD monitor ON , is that correct, if that is the reason it is normal.
The question I see is incomplete? and when you? what happens?windows detected my monitor as generic non pnp monitor and when i installed the inf file for lg monitor and updated and rebound to generic non pnp monitorit says device on vga and when i

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...


The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/f/open-device-manager-windows-7.htm
and reboot several times then go to Dell
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

I have recently added a new Dell E171FPb to my computer .. I am running windows 7 connected to an onboard videocard (motherboard model : Gigabyte GA-8SIMLH) .. this monitor is only allowing me to view...


That is one of the reason I did not upgrade my PC for testing monitor to WINDOWS 7. This monitor is old and Dell will not make new driver for Windows 7, but Microsoft may be releasing the drivers later on since a lot of people is having problem with their perfectly working monitors but will not work properly with WIndows 7 because they cannot adjust the resolution to be at the native resolution of the monitor.
Microsoft WINDOWS 7: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Default.aspx?type=Hardware

Not much you can do at this point unless you can try hacking the old Dell driver to make it works with Windows 7.

Windows 7 doesn't recognize my iiyama Vision Master Pro 450 Monitor, what to do?


My Iiyama Vision Master Pro 450 works with Windows 7 when connected with a VGA video cable that has 5 BNC RGB connectors that attach to the back of the Iiyama monitor. No driver install was needed; Windows 7 shows my Iiyama monitor as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor" with 1024x768 resolution.

How do i get it to stop powersaver at start up


its not the monitor.. it is your computer's power saver option. If you are using XP, start--->go into control panel----> power options and there will be options for different thing... find where it says turn off monitor after 15 min and make it to any time you want. Also same in vista and windows 7..
Good Luck

Unclear Display


Goto cotrol panel/display/settings and set the resolution to 640x480. Make your you are using the video driver from the manufactorer for your video card. Windows generic drivers do not work well for all monitors. When you get the proper video driver you can reset your resolution back to a higher setting.
