To my knowledge, most monitors would work with or without a driver. In your laptop pls press Fn + F? keys to activate the external monitor. Pressing on both combination would cycle on the choices of laptop display only, laptop + external monitor displays or external monitor only. The F? key would be specific to the brand and model of the laptop and would normally be with an icon monitor.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Monotor screen not stable

Hey, can we get a little more information, laptop, pc, windows, mac, linux, new hardware, are you using anything like a DVI to VGA adapter?

As a generic fix for monitor problems:
1) if you just installed a new video card, new monitor, or video card software, the drivers may not be stable or compatible and you may need to roll back your drivers.
Right Click on "My Computer", click "properties", click the "hardware" tab, click "device manager", expand "display adapters", there should be a video car listed, go to "properties", (click the resources tab and see if there is anything in the "conflicting hardware list" at the bottom) to make sure there are no hardware issues" click the "driver" tab and click on "Roll Back Driver" It should prompt you, click Yes/Ok, restart your computer.
2) -OR- You need to installed drivers for your monitor to check this,
Right Click on "My Computer", click "properties", click the "hardware" tab, click "device manager", expand the "Monitors" tab, Check to see if your specific monitor manufacturer's name and model are listed. If it just says "Default Moniter", "Default plug and play monitor", or "plug and play moniter" you will need to check the disk that should have come with your monitor, -or- the manufacturer's website. Install those drivers as prompted by the manufacturer.

3) -OR- your monitor settings are incorrect, such as your screen resolution is set to something that your monitor does support, or your refresh rate is set out of range of your what your monitor supports.

This fix is quite different depending on your OS, so if its none of the above, please let me know, and I can give more specific advise.

4) Also please note, that sometimes, if you install a new video card, drivers are compatible, everything else is correct, but your power supply on your computer is not large enough to support it, your monitor can flicker, cut out, cause your computer to lock and freeze.

Lost my driver software how can i get a copy off the web?

You don't need drivers for moniters because they are automatically installed when plugged into your pc. If you are looking for any software it may have come with, then you can download it for free from Viewsonics website/support section.

My desk top moniter has built in speakers which have stopped working. Tried attaching a pair of speakers to moniter....nothing. The computer shop said it's most likely a Windows problem and to bring in...

Make sure the Volume is high on the monitor as well as on the PC. the speaker cable that is connected to the back of the tower to the back of the monitor you have to connect that speaker cable to the front on the tower in the headset port and try to play some music. that should work out if there is no issue with the sound driver.
You can uninstall the sound driver from the device manager and reinstall it. update the driver.

Laptop wont recognise dvd drive

Here is the explanation and solution for the error code 41:

Code 41
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41) Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

Good luck.
