Philips 190B8 LCD monitor running under Win 2000 Prof OS

My new Philips 190B8 LCD monitor appears to run OK under Win 2000 Prof at the recommneded resolution of 1280 x 1024 but when I go to check DISPLAY settings the monitor type is shown as CRT. The LCD tabs are ruled out with a big X.
Do I need to get updated Win 2000 Prof drivers to make it recognise that my monitor type is in fact LCD?

We want to purchase a T-17sxl but I'm a dubt about win 7 compability. This table works fine with win xp, but, whats up with win 7? thanks for forrn reply.

Thay just want you to purchase new products, they could have easily make new drivers for WIN7. They will give an excuse that the products are too old to support the new OS. It is the Micorsoft and the hardware manufacturers that want you to buy new stuff.
I am still running XP since a lot of my hardware are still working just fine but they are not compatible with WIN 7.

Monitor went south. Replaced with an LCD. Experiencing color "disorientation". Q-1) Is it likely there is a "software conflict" and I need to D-Load Monitor specific ddl or should I...

NO monitor stated, no model # of it either, 36 years of monitors there are... what is yours?
NO OS stated, is this XP the virus magnet?
try F8 safe mode yet, see if screen looks bad now,
if it looks ok then its a software problem.
this word has no meaning at all, only your photos of it are missing
only. we cant guess screens ever. (we are bind here in text)

try another monitor first. easy no? if its ok, then the PC is okl
if not the monitor failing is bad. all in 1min test.
or , see below...

there are no DLL files for monitors, only the video card has
sys and inf files. called a Driver, monitors have no Driver binaries.
the video card generates video only.
only configuration maters.
sounds like you had CRT monitor
then plugged in a LCD year 2000 or newer, in the VGA jack
right? if yes , all LCD can do CRT resolutions, with no issues
but one, the sweet spot, called,"intrinsic resolution": stated clearly in the new monitors manual, under spec.
that means,, V/H X reso, has the most clear image.

the monitor does have a text file telling XP the upper limits of the resolution allowed.
or if the unstated monitors is super old it has very complex text file for all the old restrictive limits on it."study old multisync monitors"?

why not do F8 first.? 800x600 works on all monitors. so...
if that works you know the HW is ok. just XP messed up, as all are. XP is a virus magnet and more... lots more bad.

you do know XP is dead now? at HP and MS!
MS shut down all support but SP3 service pack (got that? pack)
do so
The PnP servers at MS are now down. forever, just like
w95 to w2k and now XP and VISTA are dead.
PnP = Plug and Play (pray) that magic that finds your monitors
name and model and the goes online and finds the rules (or a driver) from MS, (never HP)
plug and play, if say you PC wonts to run 1920x1080 (like mine)
but i plug in a 2000 year monitor and it can only do 1024x768
then the monitor goes nuts, all do , if XP or VISTA or older.
if lucky , or not. (if you local win cache has this there, then it works)
The PNP would If working ( tells the OS to not use the new resolution but to use 1024, in the stead.

what does that mean , answer and simple
XP cant go out to MS and get the unstated monitor, limit files.
the file that tells windows what resolution to uses.
or right click the desktop, and change resolution to 800x600.

so do F8 now
power on, hammer F8
monitor happy now.
and please tell the helper
what Monitor,
and what OS , so answers can be 10x shorter... please.

Installed win 7 and vx900 doesnt work

Did you install correct video driver (win 7) for your video card. Monitor does not really care what OS you are running otherwise I will go crazy try to get drivers for all the monitors I have to repair,
I assume you have already try this monitor iwth other PC, and also try this PC with other monitor.

H D Audio Driver fails to install

Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
