Does your monitor require a driver, And it sounds like maybe an issue with your video card, But without seeing it I really can't help..
However it does sound like you ave a video card issue, can you borrow a card from a buddy to see if it works, even if you add a crappy video card it will let you know if its something more serious like the motherboard or Power supply unit

I cant find driver for my flat panel monitor Dell E172fp for windows 7 64 bit... It is a big problem... Can someone help me? Sorry about my english.


It is a "plug-and-play" monitor, which is fully-supported by Windows XP/Vista/7, in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes.

What manufacturer of computer?
What model of computer?
Desktop or laptop?
Use "Control Panel" and then "Hardware" to view the details about the video-card.

Have LG W2343 monitor. Just purchased a new HP computer which has Windows 7, but having trouble with the size resolution on my screen. Monitor worked fine on my old HP computer which had Windows XP


You have to look hereto see if it is compatible with Windows 7,
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Browse.aspx?type=Hardware&category=Displays&subcategory=LCD&showallcats=true&v=LG%20ELECTRONICS

Otherwise you will need Windows 7 driver from LG if they have one.
Most monitors works fine without the need of the drivers when running XP, but Windows 7 you need the correct drivers to get the correct resolution setting, that is one of the reason I do not care much for Windows 7 until they fix this problem, since a lot of people out there that still have great working monitors that work just fine with XP, most manufacturers do not provide drivers for Windows 7 for old monitors because they want you to buy new monitors.

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.

Dell 8250 reinstall windows after malware seemingly antivirus pro. i have tried all the removal ideas i could find, but nothing has worked. I think I have more issues than AV pro. I have attempted to...


If you insert your windows or recovery disc in the PC and boot from it you should be able to access the windows re installation before the malware can initiate. The PC will ask you to press any key if you want to boot from the CD. Once there you can delete all the information on the hard drive and do a fresh install. This will restore the computer to factory settings but will remove any viruses or malware.

After installing Internet Explorer 8.0, I now can't get my hpscanjet 8250 to function. Coincendence or a direct cause? Thanks Harold Dietz


Uninstall IE 8 and reinstall IE 7, even if it reverts back to IE 7 when IE 8 is uninstalled.

So far there is no patch or other solution from HP.

I am having the same problem with an HP Scanjet 2300c. It's a low-end scanner, I know; but it worked just fine until I installed IE 8. Neither Microsoft nor HP have anything about the problem on their Web sites--nothing that I've found, anyway. That leaves only this solution.

Oh. You'll have similar problems if you're running Windows XP and install Service Pack 3. If you install both SP3 AND IE 8, the problems are compounded. Stay with Service Pack 2 and IE 7 until Microsoft and HP can get their stuff together and decide to resolve the problems--whenever they have nothing better to do, that is. They'll take their sweet time about it. That's one thing you can count on with HP and Microsoft. Money comes first, customer satisfaction comes in at number 6 or 7. Maybe it's number 8, I forget...

With that happening it means that you are having problems with either on board vga or vga card you have. It would be advisible to replace the vga card.
