Question about NEC MultiSync XE17 (White) 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

Driver for NEC Multisync XE21

My old NEC 21 inch monitor worked beautifully with my Compaq laptop, but it will not go beyone the Windows boot screen on my Payasonic CF-29E. I am unable [probably as a result of incompetence] to find a driver. to download.

likewise, your site does not consider the XE21 to be a valid product!

Since I do get the boot screens, I know that the tube is working! What can I do to keep it on all the way into the Toughbook's boot?

Many thanks.

    what version of windows are you running on your Panasonic?

    a general setting for older monitors is to use the refresh rate of 60hz. text mode (when the bios boots) and the default splash screen for most windows version is 640x480 which is standard vga mode. Here is the specs on your monitor:

    Sync on Green, Seperate

    H Freq/ V Freq:

If this is on a laptop then right click on the desktop click screen resolution then hit detect and it should detect it. if not try adjusting the input on the monitor when you boot.

NEC multiSync 1700V as external monitor for Notebook Toshiba U205, Operating System Window Vista Home Premium. It displays only part (80%) of the picture compared with notebook's monitor.

Hi, if the 17 inch lcd screen is not a widescreen then the problem with the screen is possibly nothing more than the aspect ratio or resolution, which ever way you wanna look at it. All laptops have a widescreen type of ratio, so you will have to be either willing to change the resolution when you switch screens or setup different profiles, which you should beable to do through control panel, appearance and then personalization, you will then have access to it.

Nec 700 crt

Not a solution at all, but I'll post that I have a NEC MultiSync FE700 monitor that I purchased back in 2001, and have I been using the monitor since that time. Lately the monitor has been showing signs of 'acting up'. I read on the Internet that CRT monitors generally have a working life of about six years. It may be, depending on years of use, that the monitors are just reaching the end of their life.
