Question about Balance CM2019 19" LCD Monitor
The .inf drivers for almost any computer monitor is already built into ALL operating systems.
There are, generally, no drivers necessary or available for monitors.
This is the way it works. A computer's Graphics Card (which is, effectively dedicated a mini Motherboard with its own dedicated RAM Memory, Heatsink and/or Cooling Fan and Microprocessor - GPU), purely to power and manage the overall graphics capability of the computer. The Graphics Card does most of the work involved in taking encoded or decoded image files from your computer, from a DVD or VCD, from the internet or from a typical, external imaging source like a Smart Phone, Webcam, Digital Camera, Camcorder or a Media Player and then and interprets these image files into the analogue or digital signal (depending on monitor type) it sends to the monitor for it to resolve into an image.
A monitor has a range of Resolutions it can operate within, and if the Graphics Card or Graphics Chip Setting are set too high or too low, outside this range, the next time the computer is restarted or shut down and powered up again, the monitor might be incapable of resolving the image and therefore remain blank, as the computer boots, leaving the user blind to its Desktop.
Other faults preventing monitors from displaying images include foreign metal objects or bent, touching, pins shorting in the connectors at each end of the VGA (Analogue) and DVI (Digital) Video cables that link the Monitor to the computer. The cable may also have a failure or a fault somewhere along its length or a failed connection at the junction of cable and connector.
The quality of the image displayed on the Monitor is mainly governed by the resolution of the image, which is controlled by the software governed settings of the Graphics Card
If none of the above is preventing the Monitor from functioning then the Monitor might have an internal fault. The inside of Monitors and TVs are a hostile, non User Repair Friendly working environment, with lots of capacitors storing relatively high charges even when the monitor in not connected to the mains electricity, that can seriously injure or even kill an inexperienced repairer.
Internal monitor repairs are rarely economical because a successful repair often requires the replacement of a faulty internal component, the cost of which, when added to the labour cost involved in the repair, is unsustainable, given the widespread availability (due to the rapid uptake of HD technology) and relatively low cost of Warrantied new and 2nd user models in the marketplace.
If your Monitor is powered by an AC/DC Power Adapter, check for any faults with the Adapter that might be preventing the power from reaching the Monitor and if, found, consider a replacement adapter from here or from similar sources to this:
If the monitor proves to be faulty and none of the above solutions remedies the fault, it may be time to consider buying a new Monitor.
Definitely do not waste any more time looking for Monitor Drivers.
I hope this helps.

Fantastic information, virtual_a. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer. I too was looking for the same thing. Found the .inf file, but it won't install on Vista. After looking at it, and reading what you said, I realize it's just a waste of time. :)
