Question about HP w17e Monitor

HP w17e monitor

I have an old Dell Optiplex computer running windows 2000 and recently an old Gateway 2000 Vivitron monitor unil it just died. I just installed a new monitor, an 17" lcd flat screen HP w17e. I down loaded the driver from HP website (it didn't come with the cd in the box) My problem is the print/letters on the screen. They look like little dashes strung together to form a letter. It reminds me of the old dot matrix printers how the print looked. Maybe this is normal for new LCD monitors but it looks terrible and is driving me nuts. Help.

    you can change the resolution with the monitor menu settings and/or adjust the display settings by second clicking your desktop, press Personalize, go to Display settings, and fix the resolution there.

Hp monitor 2031s does not scan signal from gateway gt5432...


Go back to Dell monitor. Remove any video drivers from hp.change video resolution both in windows and in video card settings to standard 1024 x 768 (yes it will look horrible) then hook up hp monitor. Don't install drivers if prompted get them from hp website then adjust resolution through video card settings after drivers installed which probably require restart.

My hp w17e will only work for about 5-7 seconds when I first turn it on, and then goes blank. If I turn it off and back on again, the same thing happens. Is it fixable?


You should do some research here first: www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ It's an old blog, but could offer a solution worth exploring. Just remember to rate this response after you do your research there. 12fixlouie

My w17e monitor says "input not supported"


Not quite sure what the question is that you have not already answered for yourself.
That monitor's maximum resolution is given as 1440 X 900 at 60Hz and installing a more powerful video card won't change that.

W17e says "input not supported"


Hi - here's what I found about your wide screen monitor:

The HP Pavilion w17e LCD wide-screen monitor has the following features:
  • 1440 x 900 factory-set resolution
  • Supports VGA analog signal video input
  • Plug and play capability, if supported by your computer system
  • On-screen display (OSD) adjustments for ease of setup and screen optimization
  • Energy Star compliant
Download & install the drivers for the monitor based on the version of Windows you are running from the HP site below:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&cc=pe&dlc=es&product=3377546&


Once the drivers are installed, your issues should be resolved - the driver will allow only the modes that can be displayed on the monitor - probably giving you options for resolutions you hadn't seen before.
