Thanks for your help regarding the problem with the inverter circuit in my hp 1730 monitor. I'm also living in brisbane australia and was wondering if you would be interested in fixing the monitor and how much it would cost.

what i know is that monitors don't need drivers. if your monitor is new then i believe it is already windows 7 ready. what you need to do is check the VGA cable if it is damaged. try replacing a new one. Hope this helps.
. You will need to access the dvd player's menu somehow and reduce the resolution to one that is supported: ideally it should be the 480p SD one that your player surely supports. The exact procedure is in the manual.
The backlight inverter circuits may have failed, check all the caps and the fuse in the power supply-inverter board first. If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on: Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net Capacitors kit:http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/ he can make you a set of caps for you.
if after few seconds of display and then the while display turn black, this is the indication of failed capacitor on the LCD circuit board... you will need to have some technical skill to replace the capacitor.
No, that is just the connector. The inverter board is inside the LCD on an elongated printed circuit board. Its input would be pure DC as opposed to AC from the 120 mains. Its function is to produce high frequency/high voltage to supply the Cold Cathode Florescent Lamp(s) which provide the backlight illumination of the LCD panel.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
