Question about HP Compaq WF1907 Monitor

1 Answer

Can't see screen to install diver for HP Compaq WF 1907

I've a new WF 1907 LCD monitor. Having a problem installing its driver. Turn on the PC and monitor and right away the Monotor displays a No VGA Signal then goes into Sleep Mode. Why does the monitor not see the VGA signal and how can I keep it from going into Sleep Mode long enough to install the diver. No manual with the WF 1907 on what the front panel controls do. The PC works fine with other LCD and CRT type monitors.

    I can't install the dirver for the monitor. The error "Access Denied" is displayed. The error is displayed whether I install from the CD or search for it on the web. I can't tell whether the access problem is on my computer or something the firewall is doing.

    My friend just purchased this monitor yesterday, & when she hooked it up she received the same prompt. I was able to get it working because she simply did not realize that I installed a new graphics card in her system last month. When u do this, u can not plug iyour new monitor in to the onboard graphics card that you usually have your monitor plugged into. Did u by chance, install a new graphics card? If so, unplug monitor cable from back of tower and now plug in to the new card.There should be another place where you can hook in your new monitor.

    Hope this helped:)

    I found a solution. On a new system with OEM Vista Premium, I was getting an "Access Denied" message. Suspecting resistance from the tight security on Vista, I dropped my firewall and disabled the Norton virus protection. The driver installed next try. This also enabled me to install an Office 2000 update. Part of the problem has to do with excessive security and part with the fact that the Vista Administrator Group does not come with Administrator privileges! (Try going into User Management and change your User Type to "Administrator". Exit and go in again and Surprise! you are back to being a "General User". With Norton, you can disable internet protection for short periods of time, after which it resets. Microsoft and Norton seem to think that Vista users are mostly pretty stupid, and withhold implementation of useful security management on home computers. I'm going to upgrade to Vista Business as soon as I can.

    With the VGA it goes to sleep mode. With the DVI cable the screen shows up for 2 seconds and goes away. I hooked up the computer to another monitor and it works fine. I had the 1907 working for 9 months until it crapped the bed today.

My friend just purchase this monitor yesterday. When she plugged it in to the back of the tower she received the same prompt u have mentioned. I was able to repair it because she simply did not realize that I had installed a new graphics card into her pc a few months ago. When u do this, you have to hook your monitor into the area where the new graphics card was installed. You can not plug your monitor into the same onboard card that u have previously plugged your monitor into.
Let me know, if by chance, u did install a new graphics card.
Hope this was helpful :)

Try using your windows cd to boot up the computer and if that does not work then you may need to reset the bios. Inside the case if it is desktop there is a way to reset the the bios. There is a jumper that needs to be switch then switched back that will reset the bios. If this does not work may need to get a new hard drive. The MBR ( Master Boot Record) may have been corrupted.

Monitor says: "Out of range"

This means that a video signal has been detected but it is beyond the range for display. As an example, if the monitor can only display 1024x768 and you send it a signal at 1280x1024, you will get that message. Try to downsize the display settings on your computer system until the monotor works.

Nothing on the screen at startup

If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

DVI cable not working

If you still have your old monitor plug it back in for a bit and load the drivers for the new monitor (from the disk which came with the new monitor). Right click on your desktop and choose properties and set your display resolution to something like 1024 x 768. Shut down the pc and connect your new monitor to it with the dvi adapter. If it is recognised ok you can then set the resolution from 1024 x 768 to the recommended amount for your new screen. The refresh rate is also important as some lcd screens only work at a certain level. There should be an auto switch on the monitor and if you press this it sets the display to optimum, - or should do.
