This has nothing to do with your monitor. Windows has default drivers that will be installed for that.
The problem will be your video card drivers are not installed.
Get the right drivers for your card, install them and you should be away.

Monitor will not display . Says to set resolution at 1280 x1024 . I used another monitor and changed the resolution and still didn't work. tried in safe mode, no good

Check your video drivers and the software that supports your video card. I recently did a complete OS reinstall and used the best and latest video drivers. My video card is an nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia. My display works great.

It isn't always a fault with the display. Sometimes you need to have the correct display drivers. A generic driver thqat is not the one you need could be a problem. Also, if you use the correct video sriver for your system, and you don't have the right software installed and configure for your video card, it can also be a problem.

To see is there is an obvious driver issue with your display in XP (I have XP), right-click on "My Computer."
Select "Properties," then "Hardware." Select "Device Manager" and check the list to see of you have an exclamation point beside "Monitor" or "Sound, video, and game controllers."

If everything checks, and you can confirm that your drivers and applicable software are up to date, and settings are all good, it is not software or drivers.

Hope this helps!

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.

Screen will not display

Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem.

HP w1907 monitor driver software will not load

"Access is denied" is the key here. It sounds like your login in windows does not allow you the privileges for that installation. Try logging in as an administrator and re-installing. One thing bothers me though, if this was purchased as a system, why would you need to install drivers? that should have been pre-installed.

Video Problems


Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.

May this help, best regards, melnavz

HP F1903 turns itself off when connecting DVI

Sounds like your problem is hardware and lies with the port on your PC, this may be due to a bad driver, or bad port! Sounds like you have tried everything else!
