Ok, I am looking for some help cards and me are not getting along today.

I have a 3dfx 2000 agp card with 16mb ram on it. I am putting it in as a hopeful improvement over my onboard sis630. I am looking for drivers so I can run 2d and 3d (q3 and diablo II anyone?).
I found 1.03 from this site, but it bombs on my box. This is for Win2k. Can anyone point me to the most recent drivers? I am looking for a link here.
Also, are there any known issues with the 3dfx cards that I should be aware of?

Hello and welcome to Techspot forums!
As you might know, 3dfx doesn't exist anymore, so there are no new official drivers for it. However, there are some at I can't be more specific because those stupid ASP scripts don't work with Mozilla :evil:

I've tried installing a belkin F5D7230 on my system (Win 2k Pro, Verizon DSL) to use as a router (duh!). Seven times. I down;oad the EZ Install from belkin's site, tried calling tech support 4 times, and every single time i get a "Cannot locate drivers" error. Call Belkin, "sir, you don't need drivers, just do this..." and leads me back to the same conclusion of needing drivers.

What drivers is it looking for, and where can I find them on the mess of a site that is Microsoft as they do not exist on the Belkin site.

Thanks in advance.

Recently, I have been going through quite a few CD-RW's with the Creative Labs Logo on the front. (Various Models). All of these drives are fairly new(less than a year). The drives will work for a few months then stop. The workstations are running Windows 2k Pro. I have tried going to Creative's website, but everytime I go to download a new driver. Creative informs me that no driver is available for either NT or 2k. 98or95 sure, but no NT or 2k. I have complained to them about this, but no luck.

I have downloaded the Firmware and new drivers for Win98. Tested them out and it worked on 1 drive, haven't tried the others. The question here is does anyone know of a way to get these CD-Rw's to work in a 2k environment. My current fix is to replace these drives with HP's or AOPEN drives. At least I can get 2k drivers for these.


A:Creative Labs CD-RW's and WIN2k Drivers

Creative doesn’t make their own drives to the best of my knowledge. I think they have used Sanyo, Plextor and Lite-On. Maybe others.

If you take the speeds and cross reference to what burners have the same speeds you can more closely look at the specs. Creative doesn’t usually change the faceplate, so you could find a photo of a drive you suspect is the same and compare whether it has one or two lights and where the hole is to override the eject.

What I’m suggesting is that if you find the corresponding drive from the major maker. They usually do much better on firmware revisions than rebadgers like Creative, and sometimes the firmware works. Might be worth a try if you were going to trash one anyway.

If the Win98 firmware is going to work for you I would try that before trying the firmware from the original manufacturer. It doesn’t always work. Someone tried the Plextor 24X firmware on an Iomega that was the same burner and made by Plextor and it didn’t work. Previous Iomega drives made by Plextor could be successfully flashed with Plextor firmware, so the major makers might be making it more difficult.

Those drivers are on your Win2000 disk. They are also on Win98 and XP install disks. That printer is standard for windows. In fact, you should find two different drivers on the disk - one for the regular MicroLine320, and another for an IBM specific MicroLine320.

Is there a way to see what drivers are being loaded at any particular time of the boot process?? I'm working on a computer that takes an unusually long time to boot up, and I've already disabled all of the startup apps. This leads me to believe that one or several of the hardware drivers could be taking a while.

Can anyone tell me how to install and run Network monitor on a Win2k Pro box? I am the only Win2k computer on the network, all my servers are NT4, other workstations are Win9x.


A:Network Monitor in Win2k Pro


Which network monitor? The one that comes with NT4? It is in Win2K, you just need to find the snap-in for the MMC.

Go to the run command, and type in MMC, and press enter. Then go to the console option and down to the Add Snap-in option. Click on the add button and select Network Monitor.

If it is not there, you may need to add it from your CD. Open up the Add/Remove Programs applet from your control Panel, and select the Add Windows Component button. Follow the wizard from there.

My windows ME installation, after quite some time of excessively abusive use on my part had died on me a few days ago. I decided to start again from scratch and so reformatted my drives, and did a clean install of windows 2000. On my old system, under (Ctrl Panel > Display) i could with a drop down menu, select either one of my two screens, and for the second i was able to enable a "Extend my Desktop onto this monitor" option and this enabled me to use my second screen as a blank desktop. I am unable to do this in 2000, which instead of a drop down menu shows (Multiple Monitors) on RADEON 7500 SERIES, and spans my desktop across the two screens. I really prefered the thing i had going before, can anybody help me out. Its late, and i don't know how much sense this post makes, so if there's anything unclear, let me know. Cheers,

Just thought I'd share an experience I had with Windows 2000 Pro last night.

I have a TV card tuner (PCTV) which was one of only 2 devices W2K wouldn't support off it's own drivers.

I really miss watching TV while I work and although I can use the card in W98, I only really use that for scanning (the other thing W2K wouldn't recognise!) and games.

So, I persevered and read somewhere I might just be able to use the NT drivers. I tried them and more less got the card working (I couldn't get TeleText going though).

However, some strange things happened. My ability to use some of the advanced power save options disapeared. For example, I could no longer hibernate.

I removed the drivers, rebooted and hibernate mode was back!

A little more research at the manufacturers website revealed their NT4 drivers functioned in W2K legacy mode :

"special extensions of Windows 2000 like Power Management, Plug & Play and WDM (Windows Driver Model)-Support for the driver interface are not supported. "

So, I guess using NT 4 drivers is not a good idea!

Thought some newcomers like myself might find this information useful.

Best regards

Interesting nugget of information I recieved today: The Win2K driver model is based on Win98, and NOT NT4.

So, if there are no Win2K drivers, try the Win98 drivers. They have a better chance of working then the NT4 drivers.

My boss has asked me to write in to see if someone can help with a query.

A while ago my boss upgraded his IBM Aptiva (2140 or 2142 - he can't remember!) from Windows 95 to Windows 2000 and since then his speakers on his IBM MM55 monitor (they are attached and form part of the monitor) no longer work, eg he can no longer get sound out of them.

Apparently an IT guy told him that's to be expected and basically there is nothing he can do about it, and can find nothing about a fix on the IBM website, but finds it hard to believe that there is nothing that can be done to fix the supposed glitch.

Im doing this for my Dad, so i have absolutely no idea how to describe the problem but i figured this place was my best shot as google is giving me no results on my query.
There appears to be no monitor drivers installed on the pc... and its running from the bare minimum settings. I think the refresh rate is set at a low low low setting, because lets say, if i move a window by dragging it across the screen, its all choppy, doesnt move smoothly at all... sort of like it jumps every half a second until i stop moving my mouse, then stops. The same with when i'm scrolling in internet explorer... smooth scrolling doesnt exsist! lol

I figured it was a driver problem seeing as there wasnt one installed. So i found the disk with the drivers on, and followed the instructions, which were as follows:
"Right Click" the mouse anywhere on the "BLANK" area on the desktop and click on PROPERTIES.
Click the SETTINGS tab and then click ADVANCED.
Click the MONITOR tab and then click PROPERTIES.

I successfully installed win98se / win2k / winxp (in that order) and had them all functioning properly using the windows boot loader. Well at least for a while. Today I tried to boot into win2k and it loaded to the point where it displayed my desktop wallpaper. It did not load the tasbar or start menu, and ctrl+alt+del did nothing. After a few minutes, it played the sound it plays when it loads up, and started flashing repeatedly the messages "Loading your configuration" and "Saving your configuration" or somesuch. It would not stop playing the sound and flashing those messages until I reset the machine. I then attempted to boot into XP, which ran chkdsk and said it "fixed" something in my win2k partition.

Hello guys and gals

I recently bought a second monitor for a steal (19" LG). I have been studying up before I actually wanted to install it. Many places say that you need to install the monitor drivers and other places say you don't. So my questions is that have any of you had experience hooking up a second monitor, and if you in fact need drivers or not. When I purchased the monitor it came with no drivers.

Many thanks

A:Drivers for 2nd monitor?

it depends on the input sometimes too a (d-sub) or dvi monitor. (it will only be these two in this case as their wont be a HDMI cable for a 19" monitor)

I recommend you just plug it in, most of the time it will just work, seriously.
If it doesnt that's when you look for the drivers. How are you trying to plug it in, what input are you using? But before you do all this (just to make sure) update your display drivers and your graphics card software first because when you do this, it will eliminate the chances of having to do this later.

I recently switched my monitor driver to the Plug and Play driver, but have now switched it back to the optiquest v73 driver. The problem is that now it will NOT let me select as many colors or as many pixels as I had before. For example, the list only goes up to "High Color" when previously I had "True Color." Yet even when I select High Color and then reboot, I am still in 256 colors. Similar problem with resolution.

The driver I am using is called MONITR11.INF; it also tells me I am using an "Optiquest V73 on NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440", which is true.

Aditionally, shutting down now causes Windows to close and the screen to turn black, but not the tower to turn off.

I believe I have done nothing with the video card or its drivers that could have caused this.

CompUSA does not really make monitors. It is probably some rebranded thing from a real monitor manufacturer. Look at the sticker on the back for some model or serial number that could hint the real company that made it.

Strictly speaking you don't need drivers for a monitor. Just choose any decent monitor from the list Windows gives you and force that. Then just try out the refresh rates and resolutions to see which ones actually work with your monitor.

Well, if you only use one monitor and it is working then there is no problem, the Samsung monitor is the primary and it seems the only one running. Your video card likely supports dual monitors or TV out and that's why there ae two entries. Monitor drivers are also generally not that important, most people run with the default driver, it is the video card driver that is important - it is what sends the picture to the screen.

Everything installs to C:\Viewsonic. About 50 to 75 .icm files including G220F.icm. obviously the one I need. There are also 11 .inf files, 3 of which contain install info for this monitor. But no mater which .inf I use to install- it can't find another file, G220F.icm I assume, and aborts the install. I can manually point windows to the .inf file but there is no way to point the .inf file to the .icm file.
Can someone tell me how to solve this or is there a universal Vista64 display driver other than the ones with it? 1024x768 is as good as it gets.

the drivers for the monitor are usually part of windows and don't need installing
you set the resolution from nview which is part of your nvidia drivers installation
you can access it from the control panel

I just reinstalled XP on my computer, and I was previously using a Optiquest (Viewsonic) widescreen monitor. A used the included disc to reinstall the drivers after I reinstalled windows, and the software is unable to configure the drivers. The installer automatically opens a text file which tells me to open the hardware manager and open the "+" next to the Monitor. I don't seem to have a monitor on the list, and I'm not sure what to do. The correct screen size is not available from the display properties tab, presumably because I haven't configured it properly. Any ideas?

Hi Ethan.
Viewsonic is plug & play so once connected should self install and work.
Check it out here. Start / Control panel / Administrative tools / Computer management /Device Manager /Your Viewsonic should show up there.The disks that come with Viewsonic can be a little temperamental, Widows as all the viewsonic updates click onto windows updates use the custom setting and run,then in the left panel choose hardware will probably see the viewsonic latest update there and any more you may need for your PC.
Good luck

I've no idea what's going on here, but NONE of my drivers are updating and anything new I plug into a USB port, windows 7 won't have anything to do it.

I'm certain something is missing. I don't know if it's a virus or some kind, but I can tell you now that my install shield (64 bit) is missing.

What on earth is going on? It won't even recognise a new mouse or keyboard!

There really HAS to be a way of fixing it. I posted a few pictures about it but it seems strange that it won't even install a monitor properly???? The monitor I'm using now is still usable, but it doesn't have it's own driver and as a result some software won't work on it as it acts as a secondary monitor (although it works fine and is actually pretty darn good).

Is there a way around this? I've tried an update and windows still won't detect it!

Please help, reinstalling windows is a real pain as I have a custom made PC that my friend built (who has now moved away really far) so I have no idea how to reinstall the graphics card, do a proper partition, etc. And I know NOTHING about this. If I did it I may screw things up and lose all the saved stuff on my partition.

If someone could help out that would be much appreciated.

I am running Vista Home Prem.I use an 8800 GTS EVGA.I have the latest drivers for my 8800. I run 2 Viewsonic monitors. One is a VG900b and is fine. I also run a VX2235 digital monitor. Both monitors are listed in device manager by model. I manually installed drivers directly off of the discs.I have also downloaded Viewsonic's monitor drivers. I can't get my 22" to go to it's native resolution of 1680x1050.I have had these installed for a long time and working fine. When I ran a hard disc error check that is listed under tools under properties of my computer it erased my 22" and it's capabilities to operate @ native resolution. Another difference is that before I manually installed the VX2235, it was listed as a 'non plug and play monitor' under device manager. I have never seen that before. Does anyone know how to fix this? I am this close to going out and buying a new XP Pro disc.

Hey Guys, I just bought a HP Pavillon desktop with a W1907 19 inch flat panel monitor. I've been using it for a couple of days and everytime that I turn it on a dialog box pops up stating that software has been detected. This software is the device drivers for the monitor, and it asks me if I would like to install them. But when I try to install them, an error message states simply that the installation failed due to an error. It doesn't even tell me what the error was! All it says is to go to the site of the company that made the monitor for support. So I go to the HP website, and try to download the driver from there. Lo and behold, it won't install AGAIN! It says it failed to install because an error occured. I cannot tell you how frustrated I am that this unit is ALREADY having problems, and that HP won't tell me what the error is! So can someone out there please help me?

The system informed me that several windows files were corrupt and I could not even use my office 2000 programs???

I guess you're not having the best of luck, huh?

How (if I may ask) do you acquire this system? I'm assuming that it came fully loaded, and that your sound, video, and ethernet card came loaded with the system. If this is the case, then I'll also assume that you were not given the software CD's or floppies that contain the drivers for your hardware.
You'll probably have to go to the websites of the manufacturer's of your equipment, and enter your hardware model numbers into a driver search. If you can tell us the exact models of your cards, then we can probably point you in the right direction.
As for the Win98 CD, try asking around if anybody has a copy that you could borrow. Failing that, you could start kissing the butts of your IT guys at work. They might take pity on you and let you "borrow" a copy.

Hello, It would be outstanding if one of you intelligent gentlemen or ladies could help me with this issue.

I have a chaintech 7NIL motherboard and a chaintech FX5600 video card set to a digital Viewsonic VG171b which I have had for a few years.

The problem is that the monitor will flicker periodically. It is not flickering constantly, as per a refresh rate issue, but rather at random times. Sometimes the right side of the screen will flash a quick line, sometimes the whole picture just adjusts/flickers.

It is not a big issue that prevents normal use of the computer, but it is quite annoying!

I have the latest nVidia drivers. I have the refresh rate and resolution set ot the native for the LCD, and I have tried chanign the quality settings within the computer, but it hasn't worked.

Any suggestions?


A:Problem with Monitor and Video Drivers?

Plug out the monitor from the graphics card and check for dirt. Assuming there is none then try it on someone elses to see if the same thing happens. Double check the refresh rate on your and your friends computer. If it happens on there computer then there could be something wrong with the monitor. If it behaves normally then im stumped. Could be something with the graphics card. Try another monitor with it to see if the same flickering accours. It happens sometimes on my laptop but only when the bulb is warming up. OH The Bulb? that could be causing it. Dont know how to check though.

I just completed the build of a new system and have the Windows 7 RTM software loaded on the system. Since the system is new I just have it connected to an old tube monitor which isn't so great. I was looking at getting a new 23 inch LCD that can do 1920 x 1080 but I'm wondering if I'm going to need a specific driver for the monitor or whether Windows 7 will see it automatically as plug and play? So far one monitor I'm looking at only has a driver for 32-bit Vista and my machine is 64 bit. The other monitors didn't have any drivers so I'm worried about buying something now. Should I be concerned?

A:Monitor Drivers - Are they needed for Win7?

The majority of the time, Windows or Windows Update will find a monitor driver for you. If it doesn't, or one does not exist, it will simply use the generic Plug and Play driver.

Either way, a new monitor will still work fine. The only difference is you may have to manually change the resolution.

Which monitor were you looking at?

I have a compaq running windows xp with service pack 3. The video card in question is an Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440. I have not had very much fun with this card, but have usually been able to make it do what I want.

It now only displays 4 bit colours at 800x600 resolution. Usually restarting the computer or reinstalling the drivers fixes this. Now nothing will fix it. I have let windows pick the drivers, and gone to Nvidia and used their drivers. Both worked fine before. Now I don't have the desktop tray thing that lets me modify resolution and colour anymore, and I don't have ane other options to display other resolutions or colours in the windows display settings either.

If I remove the drivers or start my computer in safe mode, the colours look beautiful and I regain the ability to change the colours. As soon as I install the drivers again, the colours don't work anymore.

What I was doing before this problem occurred, was trying to get the s-video port on the back to display in colour on an older TV with an s-video to RCA (Component?). The cable worked fine on other TVs with this computer, and fine on other computers with the TV in question. Just not from my MX 440 to the TV in question. I had found some solutions to this problem which involved switching the outpute type from s-video to composite. I then installed and reinstalled the driver many many many times (and installed the one windows picked) and managed to change that setting. It didn't work.... Read more

A:Monitor can only display at 4 bit (lowest) with drivers

It sounds as if reinstalling the driver many times may have caused registry problems, and/or the driver you
last installed is incompatible or has issues with your configuration. It's definitely a driver problem though.

Did you install the driver below?

Go into device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation marks next to the hardware.

Just like SUMo does for Software updates, DUMo uses a crowd-based algorithm in order to automatically maintain its server database up to date.

DUMo does not automatically install drivers because we consider that the end user has to be kept in the loop when it comes to system drivers modification. DUMo notifies update availability and provides links to find these drivers easily.

What is the exact 4 digit number next to dev_ in any of them? I'll make you an .inf. In the meantime, download this driver and run it to extract to c:\ati.

You rwont need drivers for the monitor, you need them for the graphics adapter.

And even then you may not need them. Try going to the desktop properties and setting the resolution from there. Right click the desktop and select personalize. From there go to the settings tab and you should see a slider for resolution.

I've googled, and searched this forum for a fix to my problem but haven't found one so far, so hopfully you guys can help.

A few months ago I got a second hand monitor from a friend, to replace my CRT because I was getting headaches when working. It was cheap (?10) because it's fairly outdated and had a dead pixel, but it was worth it to get rid of the headaches. At the time I was running Vista x86 and I plugged the monitor in and its maximum selectable resolution was only 1024x768, rather than the 1280x1024 that it was meant to be. I couldn't find a fix for this, but managed to work around this by updating the drivers and selecting the "Generic 1280x1024 Flat Screen" in the list of drivers in Vista. This brought the correct resolutions to the list and the issue was solved.

I then had the same issue in Windows XP (x86) and used the same work around, which again fixed the issues. However last week I done an upgrade and purchased Vista x64 and am having the same issue once again. But this time, selecting the drivers in the list does not update the resolutions I can select and I am stuck with 1024x768, which isn't a good enough resolution for the 3D Modeling and Texture working I am trying to do.

my monitor goes into standby as soon as windows installs the drivers, and it doesn't come back, I've reinstalled windows as I thought it might be my old nvidia drivers causing the problem - same problem.

I tried the drivers that come with windows, the newest ati drivers and the ones that came with the card - same problem all round.

windows XP sp2
athlon xp 1900+
512MB ram
asus a7m266

any ideas?

A:ati 9600xt - monitor goes into standby when drivers are installed

Your motherboard only supports up to 4x AGP cards and you are trying to pop in an 8x AGP card, but the card should be backwards compatible so I doubt that is your problem.

Just to make sure we understand. You can actually boot up your computer, and the video card is sending a signal to your monitor before you install the drivers?

Hello, I'm new to these forums, but I hope that you can help me with my issue.

I recently got a second monitor and have been trying to get the two monitors to work in "extend" mode, where you drag the mouse off of one side to get to the other monitor.

The two monitors are a Viewsonic VA2037a-LED, and an AOC e2051Sn.

My graphics card is an AMD Radeon R7 200 series.

My current setup is as follows: I have a VGA Y-splitter connected to the Graphics card VGA port. Attached on the Y-end of the Y-splitter are the two monitors. It looks like this:


Here is my issue, and it's a bit complicated. Basically, Windows only recognizes this as *one* monitor. Both monitors work fine -- they act like they're mirrored right now. But that's because Windows only recognizes this as *one* monitor, rather than *two*. Hitting Detect does nothing, and hitting Identify shows the big "1" on both monitors.

It gets more interesting though. In the device manager, I can only find ONE monitor "installed", a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor". Looking at the driver location (C:/Windows/System32/monitor.sys), it's likely that Windows is just throwing the default monitor driver it has at anything that comes through the VGA port.

In trying to fix the problem, I came to, of course, reinstalling drivers. First, I reinstalled my GPU driver. Next, I began to try to install the ViewSonic driver from the CD it came with (the Viewsonic is the new dri... Read more

A:Windows monitor drivers can't install correctly

This is normal. Just connecting a y-splitter cable to a single port isn't going to be enough. Each monitor needs a dedicated output port to have an independent display. In some cases a video card will have a specialized single port that can drive two independent displays with a specialized cable, but it doesn't sound like yours is one of those.

Also, there are no drivers for monitors, and what most people think of as drivers are just color profiles. So you're wasting your time on that one. PC to monitor communication is one-way, meaning there's no need for a driver. The only real exceptions might be if a monitor has a built-in webcam or some such.

What you need to do is dump the y-splitter and connect each monitor via its own port on the video card. With LCD monitors, DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort is by far preferable to VGA. The only way a y-splitter would work is if you're using the one provided along with the video card designed specifically for that kind of function. Just attaching a y-splitter on a normal VGA port will get you exactly what you describe. I will also save you some time, trouble and probably expense by telling you that you shouldn't bother trying any DVI to VGA adapters or something similar. You can't convert a digital signal to analog just by rerouting some pins in an adapter.

I am completely stumped with this one and have tried just about everything.

First of all, I'm running windows 7

My rig is using a Geforce GTX 570, which I run dual monitors out of.

My main monitor is an Acer AL2616W, and my secondary is a Westinghouse L2210NW. Both monitors are DVI. I've had this set up for 2 years with no issues.

Two nights ago I shut my computer off as normal, turn it on the next day and the Acer is not detected and has no signal. There were no updates or changes to the computer. It just, apparently, stopped working.

Neither the nvidia control panel or the windows display control panel could detect my main monitor. The monitor also disappeared from the device manager.

I tried unplugging the monitor, flipping it off and on, switching the ports, switching the cables - nothing changes the situation. So you would think it would be the monitor, however, the main monitor still works when going through the boot screens with first powering on my computer. It isn't until the windows welcome screen that it shuts off and starts working exclusively on my Westinghouse.

I think it could be a driver issue, but I'm stumped. If I disable the nvidia driver so the display works through the basic motherboard display, the Acer starts to work. Of course since it's not using the GPU drivers, the resolution is super low, and no duel monitors. But the point is, the Acer works when the nvidia drivers are disabled. I have tried updating the drivers, r... Read more

Setting up my new Notebook with Vista Home Premium. Epson C60 printer as per Epson instructions for Vista, it says hook up to notebook and automatically download drivers. Did that and it worked and I was printing. And wireless, programs etc. all ok.
But now printer questions and Problem:

1)Can't find Ink Monitor or Print tests or nozzle cleaning or cartridge changing or anything like that on the system and also Epson it is not listed anywhere in the program menu. Are just the basic drivers downloaded?

2) Once I started using my wireless network moving files between my old notebook and my wife's pc and my new notebook, I lost my printing ability. I kept getting a "select a printer" window come up and then when I selected the epson, it would say it was not available on the network. It seemed to want to use a printer on the network. But the Epson is wired in to my laptop by usb cord and was on and connected. In control panel it showed the it as ready and as the default.....but it seemed to want to connect by the Network. How to sort out that confusion?

So, I uninstalled it for now and am wondering whether to install it again as I did before or maybe get a new printer......
Any thoughts? Things have been going so well with the transition, just this and a few small things to sort really....Thanks.

Hey, tearing my hair out here, and I was hoping you guys could help - I'd really appreciate it!
I was playing WoW and my game started to freeze constantly; so I decided to uninstall and reinstall my drivers.
So I uninstalled my old driver from the Device Manager and tried re-installing via the Catalyst installer, but it gave me an error. I restarted my PC and now my monitor won't power on, it is receiving no power at all. I tried connecting my PC to a separate monitor and I had the same problem, they just seem to go into Power-saving mode, or standby as soon as the PC is connected. I took somebodies suggestion to remove my GPU, I opened up my PC and I can for the life of me not find it, so I assume I'm integrated graphics, every post ive seen has suggested going into the BIOS, but I can't even get to the BIOS..  Any suggestions on how to fix? I would seriously appreciate any help I can get!
I am a computer newbie, but willing to try any method suggested.
I'm running Windows 8 64 bit, and my motherboard is a MSI A55M-P33
Thank you very much for reading!

A:Deleted Chipset drivers, no monitor signal

so you are sure the computer is running and have confirmed it is not the monitor, next step would be to see if the onboard video has crapped out. You will need to install a "borrowed (or buy a cheap card for testing) video card to see if the produces a display

Since installing Vista 64-bit I'm having trouble with nvidia drivers for it. I have a Geforce 8800GTS 512mb PCI-E graphics card which I have used fine for the last few months.

I was using Vista 32-bit those last few months, but now I've made the switch to Vista 64-bit for the reasons that I get it free through my university and also to see if there is a performance boost.

Since using Vista 64-bit and installing the latest and older Nvidia drivers, when on my monitor's native resolution 1920x1080, it doesnt fill the whole screen, there is about an inch on everyside where the screen is just black, with the desktop sitting inside this, obviously I cannot use my monitor like this as 1920x1080 is small enough as it is, without it being reduced to a size of about a 19" screen.

I then switched to Omega drivers to see if this would fix it and it does, I could run 1920x1080 on the monitor perfectly. But when playing some games, colours would be different and anti-aliasing would be working etc. In the case of GTAIV, there weren't actually any textures at all.

Therefore I would like to use the Nvidia drivers but I can't run the resolution 1920x1080 because of my problem, and I really hate using 1680x1050 because all text is a bit blurry.

I have tried using the Nvidia Control Panel to adjust the scaling, if I apply any of the 4 scaling options, none of them make any different whatsoever, there is still an inch of nothing around the disp... Read more

I recently updated my drivers for my nvidia graphics card. After rebboting the machine i found that i could no longer see a display on my monitor.

Is there any way in which i could revert back to the old drivers without being able to see anything on the screen?

You should be able to boot and POST atleast, is this the case? If this is the case, go into safe mode and go to device manager using the below method - once here, search for the drivers for your card and right click, properties, uninstall (or rollback, which will change them to your last most recent drivers for your card).

Have a new Vista Premium system. It's an HP Pavilion a6250z. My monitor is an HP w2007. Display Adapter is NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT with 512MB. 3GB RAM. Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ 2.4 GHz.

Everything seems to be running great except that I cannot get the drivers for the monitor to install. No matter what I try, I get either an error has occured or Access Denied when I attempt to run the installation program.

When I look at my display properties it shows the correct monitor, however it shows there being no driver. In Device Manager the Monitor shows under Other Devices. My monitor seems to work ok...but there is a hugely noticiable quality difference between the display when connected to the new Vista machine and the older XP machine.

I've been through forums all over the net and tried everything I've found.

I've tried:

- Right-Click Run as Admin
- Creating/Using the Super Administrator Account
- Uninstalling Monitor and Detecting Hardware Changes
- Updating Driver from Display Properties
- Updating Driver from Device Manager
- Uninstalling Monitor, Rebooting in Safe-Mode, Logging in as Super Admin
- I've installed directly from CD
- Copied files to desktop and ran
- Downloaded new drivers directly from HP and ran from desktop
- I've even tried running the driver install in XP SP2 compat mode...just to be sure

I've done everything I can think of. Anyone have any suggestions? I really hate to have to uninstall everything and load an old copy of XP instead.

A:Access Denied When Installing Monitor Drivers

I presume that you've got the 32 bit version of Vista and not the 64 bit version? If so....Have you downloaded the drivers from this link? you updated your nVidia display drivers also? Here's a link to them: you have the 64 bit version, then it appears that HP doesn't have a 64 bit driver for your monitor (here's the 64 bit nVidia drivers: ) - so you won't be able to install it that way. Maybe you can find out who actually built the monitor for HP to see if there are 64 bit drivers at their website.The following link is the last page of a 32 page topic about your monitor - it seems to indicate that there are some issues with the monitor depending upon which LCD screen you've got:

I have an HP DC7700u pc with a 1.86ghz core 2 duo processor and 4 Gb Ram (32 Bit). My monitor is an Hp Monitor as well. When I first plugged in the monitor and turned on the computer, the display looked a little "low quality" and the device manager showed "generic pnp monior". After a few days of using the computer and installing updates, the display suddenly looked really nice and the device manager showed the actual model number of the monitor. Now after about of month of use, the display is suddenly "low quality" again and the device manager is once again saying "generic pnp device". I tried updating the drivers and that didn't work. Looked on the Hp website as well as Microsoft site and both say the monitor is plug-n-play and no software is needed. Where do I go from here to make this work permanently?

A:Hp Monitor drivers not installing. Problems with Windows Update?

Most monitors are plug-and-play, but they may need updated drivers to cope with your graphics card.

You told us you have an HP monitor, but you didn't say which model it is.

Have a look at HP Support here: Updating a Monitor Driver - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

You may also want to update your graphics drivers as well. I can't advise you where because you haven't posted your full computer specs.

I am not sure if anyone has ever experienced this phenomenon, but after I install the Nvidia Geforce video drivers for my Windows Vista x64 system, my monitor will not go into sleep mode after a proper Windows shutdown. I know this happens for sure due to the video drivers because when I use the default/standard VGA drivers provided by Vista, the monitor works as usual. I am running a tri-sli setup consisting of three 9800 gtx's and my monitor is a 28" Hanns-g HG281D. I've contacted Hanns-g/Hannspree for an answer but they could only tell me to switch my monitor's input settings to "pc." However, this particular model does not include any such setting and they finally agreed to that after I insisisted forever. Any ideas? Thanks for your input.

So I purchased this monitor at Staples last weekend.  I installed it, and also the HP Support Assistant.  When finished, I then found I was still operating under the Windows "generic pnp monitor" driver.HP Support Assistant was no help at all - it could not recognize that I am using a HP monitor. So I called HP Tech support today - as it turned out, this is off-shore support.  After finally convincing them that I indeed had an HP device that was under warranty, I was connected with another off-shore technician, who proceeded to "instruct me" that there are NO HP DRIVERS - everything uses generic drivers.  At this point, I realized that I was being fed a lot of bovine manure.  When I asked why HP Support Assistant did not see the monitor on my system, he said it was not supposed to see the monitor, only the mainframe pc.  I told him that he was not very helpful, and ended the call. So I dug some more, and sure enough, I found HP27vc LCD Monitor driver, sp73128.exe.  I installed this, and now my Monitor is running with the HP driver,  and not the generic one. I checked HP Support Assistant once more, wondering that if the correct driver was now installed, it might now see the monitor, but alas, it still does not see it. Is it worthwhile to keep this HP Support Assistant installed ?  I mean, since it does not see the monitor, how can it be of any use to me ? Any comments or thoughts appreciated ceetiger

A:Tech support a severe disappointment - HP monitor drivers

Hi: I would imagine that you may get all kinds of varying opinions regarding the usefulness of the HP Support Assistant (HPSA) software. That is one of the first programs I uninstall when I get a HP PC. As you found out, you can check your HP product's support page for new drivers (or drivers in general). One of the things that scares me is that some folks have the HPSA software running automatically, and it will download and install software updates without the user knowing it. This can be particularly dangerous if it downloads and installs a BIOS update to the PC, and you are working on the PC during this process.  You may not even know it is running, or casually dismiss any notifications as you are busy (I do that now and then), and if you were to shut down your PC during a BIOS update, you end up with a dead PC. I have read a few forum posts where this has indeed happened to a few unfortunate folks. You can set the program to notify you only, and then you chose when and what updates to install. I just get rid of more application running in the background to slow down your PC. Run the disk cleanup and optimization utilities at least once a month to keep your PC running fine.

First off, I have done some research and found other similar posts around, but none of the solutions have helped me, and they don't directly line up with my problems.

I currently have Windows 7 installed, I am dual booting Windows 8 on a partition on my SSD because I am skeptical (though optimistic), and want to give it a go first. So I install Windows 8 professional 8.1 (It's from Microsoft's dreamspark program, if it makes a difference), and that works fine, then I install all the drivers.

I have 3 screens, on a fresh install, the two plugged into my card's mini displayport ports work as duplicate screens, and work fine. After a few minutes, Windows seems to find a version of the AMD drivers with Catalyst Control Center, which it installs, at which point I can use all 3 screens in a proper extended desktop. The problems arise when I try to install the latest AMD drivers myself. I am using the correct version, 64-bit for Windows 8.1. I have tried the latest stable release, 13.12, and beta release, 14.3.

In both cases, I begin installing the drivers, just as I would in Windows 7, about 2 thirds of the way through the installation one of the screens becomes inactive and the remaining two go black, not off, just black. I wait, nothing happens, the only thing to do is turn off the computer manually with the power button. When I turn it back on, the windows logo loads, but before the lock screen I get another black screen, this time with a cursor and the spinning loading lo... Read more
