ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED monitor is a Generic Non-PnP Monitor

Q: ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED monitor is a Generic Non-PnP Monitor

Greetings all,

My ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED monitor is recognized as Generic Non-PnP Monitor. I even downloaded and attempted to install Viewsonic's "Standard_Monitor_Driver_Signed_Win7_x64". It times out at the end of installation and requests I download "Standard_Monitor_Driver_Signed" from Viewsonic website.

My display view is set at max res of 1600x1200. I am running Win7-Ultimate 64bit.

Is there any other way to get Win 7-Ultimate 64bit to recognize the monitor as VX? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am using an NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS 256MB card.

Thank you

A: ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED monitor is a Generic Non-PnP Monitor

If you need to know, here is how I fixed it.
First install ViewSonic's "Standard_Monitor_Driver_Signed_Win7_x64"
Go to Device Manager
Select Monitor drop down tab
Select Generic PnP Monitor
Right-Click on Generic PnP Monitor
Select option "Update Driver Software"
Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
Select from the models listed: Generic PnP Monitor
Select option "Have Disk..."
Select "Browse..."
Navigate to where the ViewSonic monitor drivers are stored
Example: C:\ViewSonic
Select monitor driver
Example: VX2450_SERIES
Click "Open"
Click "OK"
Select from the pop up window:
ViewSonic on the left and ViewSonic VX2450 Series on the right
Click "Finish"

Finally, you will receive the message: Windows has successfully updated your driver software.
Notice resolution is now 1680x1050

After successful install of Nvidia drivers for my laptop's "nvidia geforce 9300m gs" current version:

186.19 to new version: 260.99, the max res cannot be set to the following available resolutions:
1920x1200, 1920x1440 or 2048x1536

Enjoy!

I run XP on a new box and a fairly new 19" (year old) View Sonic LCD monitor. The monitor worked as advertised on my old PC but when attached to my new one I frequently get a flashing green power indicator light and will get no picture.

This happens 100% of the time if I cold start the PC and I have to screw around with the restart button and on/off power button to get it to come back to life and in truth I do not know which combination of button pushing gets it to come back. I now use the power saver mode because that seems to be the most consistent way of bringing the monitor back to life but even that didn't work this am.

ViewSonic's web site wasn't much help.

Help here?

About four months ago I bought a supposedly rebuilt Viewsonic P815. About one month after I hooked it up it started to not degause. The screen is pink.

Every once in a while it will correct itself and be fine for a day or two, then it goes pink again. I've replaced cords and plugs.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I'm trying to decide between the G90FB 19" or the P95F+B...
Here are the links:
G90FB
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=24-116-282&depa=1
P95F+B
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=24-116-232&depa=1

The only real difference between the 2 is the fact the Professional one (P95F+B) has an aperture grille while the Gaming (G90FB) has a shadow mask

I know the shadow mask uses dots (dot pitch) while the aperture grille uses lines instead of dots...

Which monitor will give me the best picture for gaming and crisp clear text.
 

A:Which is the better Viewsonic monitor?

If you can afford it I'd get the Professional version. I had Philips 107P (Professional) monitor with a .25 Aperture grille and it was the best monitor as far as picture quality/clairity I've ever seen (I'm sure there are better, but not without paying major money).

I have a four year old 19" viewsonic monitor-just recently its started shutting itself off for no apparent reason. If I press the power button it comes on again-for a while. Tried it on a different PC and same problem

Is this a known fault with monitors and is it likely to be worth repairing I wonder?

A:Viewsonic Monitor Problem

It sounds like the vertical deflection is gone. Try the monitor on a different computer or a different monitor on yours to see where the problem is. If the monitor is bad its better to bury a new one than to pay to have it repaired. New monitors are pretty cheap now.

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.

Why not just uninstall the monitor drivers you installed and reboot and use the Vista drivers?

My 2nd attempt to get some help off the forums

A few days ago, I tried loading up Warcraft 3, a game, and the screen went black, with the light flashing on and off. If I alt tabbed out of WC3 the screen turned back on. The problem persisted after a restarted, so I left it for a while. A few hours later I tried and W3 worked fine, no problems.

However today I turn on my PC and after a few seconds during the boot up, the screen goes blank with the flashing on and off light again. I restart it and it goes blank even faster.
After a while on the forums (on my GFs laptop) I try pressing F8 before the screen goes blank, and then press ESC for the 'default' Boot option. It goes on to boot up normally, with screen errors. I test out warcraft 3, (since when I first saw this it was whilst starting up this program) and it works fine, and goes on to do so for a few hours, till I turn the screen off and on to see if the problem is permanently fixed. It hasn't, the screen goes black.
Upon restarting my PC I get the same error as before, Pressing F8 and Esc doesn't fix it anymore. However now after pressing Esc I get to the screen where they ask me if I would like to Boot up in Safe mode. I do so and it loads up in safe mode fine.
Later on I try again to get it to load in normal mode, it does first time. Then upon loading Warcraft 3 again, the screen goes black again, with the flashing light. Again rebooting results in the same black screen a few seconds into loading... Read more

I have a ViewSonic 19" CRT monitor (bought new in '99) connected to a PC that runs Win XP SP2, 512 MB RAM, Matrox Millenium AGP card.

The system ran fine until I moved it (carefully) to another room. The CPU boots but the monitor does not give any video. I get a black screen with a repetetive blue area that indicates no signal. The specific line entry is "No Synch". I think I may have seen this in the past, when the monitor was powered on but the CPU was shut off. I can't be certain it's the exact same condition.

I switched cables and tried a different video card but no luck. I don't have another monitor other than my laptop. I think I can hook it up to act as a monitor but not certain. Can't afford to crash the laptop.

Any suggestions?

My Viewsonic LCD monitor flashes on and off depending on what I am viewing. I can view pages in any program that has writing or a small number of small pictures without too much trouble. A web page with lots of pictures or the desktop and screen saver are the worst. The monitor flashes off so much on these last pages that I can barely see the page long enough to move the mouse and open a program or expand one from the start bar. I have checked cables, changed power cord, and checked video card drivers. Viewsonic website was no help. Anyone with any ideas?

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Do you happen to know if you are operating the monitor at or beyond its normal operating range for resolution and refresh rates?

Do you get a stable image if you start Windows with a lower resolution in Safe mode?

In the future, it would help us to help you if you give more details like the model number of the monitor and how it is connected to the computer. The TSG reporting utility program does not produce an exhaustive and detailed report about all of the hardware related to your computer.

I have a Viewsonic VA721 monitor that I was using up until earlier today when the monitor started acting like a scrambled cable tv channel when turned on.

I was wondering if anyone might happen to know as to what might cause that, what the technical term for it might be and as to whether or not it can be fixed.

Up until today I have never had any problems with the monitor. Every time I would walk away from the computer for a while I would shut the monitor off so that I could avoid any burn in problems with it thereby preserving the life of the monitor. Because of that I have never had any problems with it until today and at the moment I do not know what could be causing the problem.

I tried the monitor on two different computers with two different cables and got the same result. I bought the monitor in 2006 brand new and up until today it has served me faithfully without any problems.

I don't know if it can be fixed or even if it is worth it nor do I know if it is something that I can fix myself or if I would have to have someone else fix it.

What I do know is if there is anything that I can do to fix the problem myself and restore it to active service then I might choose to give it a try.

Until I have more answers though I cannot make an informed decision about any of it and that is why I am asking.

I am hoping that there will be someone here that will know about such things and can give me some straight advice and information about the monitor and the pro... Read more

I just replaced a 1280x1024 Viewsonic monitor, that had gone bad, with another one (Viewsonic VA708).

Though I've never really been one to pay "hard hard" attention to how things look on a monitor - never felt a problem with anything - something just looks/feels "off" with this one.

This is most noticeable to me on the titles appearing on the browser tabs in Firefox. They just look "wrong" - watery maybe to my eye.

BUT... I have attached a screenshot comparing a blowup of a browser tab from my work computer Dell 1280x1024 monitor (top) and my new Viewsonic monitor (bottom), blown up to 1000 px wide (I cropped), and in the blowup, I can't tell the difference.

So why might I be perceiving things differently with this new monitor?

FWIW, I did update the driver from the Viewsonic site, and I also played with both the monitor's and the control panel's display adjustments.

I'm stuck between these 3 monitors. The HP 27xi AOC i2757fh or the Viewsonic VX2770SMH-LED 27

They all look similar, but I'm just not sure which one to get. I'm leaning toward the HP 27xi though, but this site rated the AOC i2757fh a little higher over the HP 27xi. I'd like to hear some feedback from you guys.

My main usage is playing games like BF3/BF4, SWTOR and Titanfall when it comes out. I also do a lot of web surfing and occasional movie watcher on this monitor. My current monitor is a 24 inch Asus VW246H and I like it, but I don't love it. So my main concern is how well it displays games. I don't want any ghosting and the least amount of input lag I can find. Now, I know the AOC boasts a slightly quicker response time of 5ms vs the HP's 7 seconds, but the reviews I've read thus far state there is no visual lag from the HP. What do you guys suggest? Thanks in advance!

Hello guys,

So one night when I left my computer on, i wake up at 3AM on a rainy night and i notice my entire room flashing (like from a tv in dark room). I thought I was having a rolling blackout, but as I got to my senses I noticed that my monitor was the only thing turning off and on. I turned it off, and went to sleep. The next morning I went to go turn on my computer and the monitor does the same thing. It turns off...on...off...on...off...CONSTANTLY (about a one to two second delay between each) until I turn the monitor off. The LED light is green. It goes from green, to off, to green, etc. I've had no prior problems with this monitor.

I tried switching out the power cord and plugging it into my wall (not connected to my video card, or anything)...no luck. It's definately the monitor. I don't know if it's dead or repairable or what. I often leave the computer on over night but i have a 10 minute screensaver and my monitor goes on standby after 20 minutes. When i fell asleep, my monitor was on standby (yellow LED). When I woke up it was the green turning on and off. Doesn't make much sense.

I don't have a replacement...so my situation is pretty bleek atm.

I have a Viewsonic LCD VX924 3ms that i bought around the holidays of 2005. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Guys, I have no idea whats going on over at Viewsonic, however their support service is lacking some serious SUPPORT!!! Just the other day, I re-installed Vista 64 and had been happily using a x64 monitor driver for my VX2025WM, just before the re-install I decided to trall the net for latest drivers and deleted any old ones I had (stupid I know). Anyway on re-install with the latest unsigned driver - Standard_Monitor_Driver_Unsigned_Windows_x64 - Dated 04/10/2007, it is now telling me it cannot find my monitor. I've also tried the latest signed driver and this is not working either. I have tried a manual install from C:\Viewsonic and funny enough the monitor isn't even listed. I've asked Viewsonic for help with them replying asking me to download the latest unsigned driver (what the???) All I need is a copy of the previous unsigned driver to this one listed and I know 101% it will find my monitor and work, does anyone have it or know where I can find archived drivers, as Viewsonic have not responded to this request. Please help! Cheers in advance.

My monitor seems to be experiencing some kind of problem.

The best way I can describe it is as a 'widescreen' mode. There is a black bar on the top and bottom of the desktop about 1 inch wide and extending across the entire length of the screen. I cannot move the mouse into this portion of the screen.

When adjusting the horizontal and vertical settings, 100% stops with the 1 inch black bars still in place. I cannot seem to make the desktop fit the screen. It seems to have shifted into some other mode of viewing.

I called Viewsonic tech support, but they didn't really know much else to do besides checking my settings. I am at 1024 x 768 resoloution, Radeon 8500 64MB graphics card, Windows XP and have installed the most recent drivers. Even when booting - the black bars are present, as if the monitor has somehow decided that is the mode it wants to be in.

If anyone has come across something like this before or knows how I might be able to fix it, I'd be MUCH obliged!

Regards,

Jeff.

I have recently changed my hard drive and had to reinstall all the programs on my computer. Since doing so, the Viewsonic monitor has been stuck in troubleshooting mode.

What do I do to get a better resolution with this monitor. It worked fine until the hard drive was changed.

I have downloaded the driver for the monitor from the net which was unsuccessful.

Windows is not accepting the driver that I downloaded.

Just upgraded to Win7 64bit. My trusty old monitor has no sound (the picture is fine) I found a driver for a generic Viewsonic x64 driver, http://www.viewsonic.com/support/dow...d_Win7_x64.zip but that didn't solve the problem. I read a suggestion somewhere to uninstall the driver and let Windows find it. That didn't solve the problem either. I tested the monitor with my old (XP) system, in case the monitor developed a sudden fault, but there is still sound when I plug it back in there.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I really don't fancy having to buy a new monitor too, after having had to replace my printer and scanner

A:Viewsonic vx2235wm-1 Monitor has no sound.

What does the monitor require? Older monitors, that use VGA or DVI usually have a Jack to connect from the PC's Speaker out (GREEN) to the monitor for sound. No driver is required for that. There is no audio in a VGA or DVI connection, just video.

Never mind, as quick as the problem began, it's resolved itself for some reason. Post can be deleted.






I'm having a bit of a strange issue with my ViewSonic VX2258 monitor.
Out of nowhere, the screen started to flicker (not the sort of flickering you might expect from a loose cable, but literally going completely off and back on) every few seconds. Eventually the screen did not come back on at all.
Thinking there was a loose cable, I tried tightening them but to no avail. The light on the monitor is still blue showing that it is detecting an input and Windows still detects that the monitor is plugged in.
When I turn the monitor off and on, I can see the ViewSonic logo, but oddly enough after that it is a black screen and I am unable to get any system menus to appear (the ones that are generated by the monitor itself, not the PC) or change the source. I would have thought that because of this, there is something wrong with the display but that doesn't seem to be the case considering I can see the logo upon starting the monitor. (Perhaps something to do with firmware?)
I don't think that it is a problem with my GPU as my secondary monitor (a Samsung SyncMaster) still seems to be functioning perfectly but just in case, it is a Powercolor Radeon R9 290X and my drivers are all up to date.
Thanks for the help!

I have a gaming system see specifications below, so I want to install Viewsonic monitor driver instead generic driver. I can send you error details as attachment if you mail me link. Kindly solve this driver problem.

Title says it all really, just put a scratch in my 3 week old monitor , mildly annoyed about it and wondering whether theres any way to make it go away. When I run my finger over it it dusn't feel like a scratch, but with the monitor off, or showing a bright white screen its quite evident, and running fingernail over it i can tell its an indentation. Against bright white it looks almost like the effect seen if theres water on your monitor (rainbowy), if that helps at all. Basically i'd just like to be not able to see it, and was wondering if you had any suggestions?

hi all - ive got a problem with my new viewsonic vx2753mh-led monitor. its got 2x hdmi inputs and one vga.

the vga works straight off the bat, but whenever I try and plug the hdmi in it just says no input signal detected and goes black

I noticed in device manager that this was installed as 'generic non-pnp monitor' so after jumping through some hoops i managed to install the driver as 'viewsonic vx2753 SERIES'
Anyway this doesnt seem to have made a difference. still no input through the hdmi.

I have tested to cord on my samsung tv and it worked fine so it can't be a problem with the cord or the graphics card....

just some general info that might be of use:
windows 7 x64
dual monitor setup

the graphics is integrated on the intel i5 chip
my display adapters in device manager says Intel(R) HD Graphics Family.
it has a dvi out, hdmi out, and vga out.

thanks for any help you can give!

A:Viewsonic LCD monitor not recognizing HDMI input signal.

I have a Viewsonic which I'm also trying to run a media PC to connected via an HDMI cable, and I have noticed the exact same thing.

It was working fine for awhile, but recently I have been receiving an error on screen saying the "HDMI to DVI cable as experienced an error" or something to that effect. Note: I am using strictly an HDMI cable, not an HDMI to DVI as the message states (can't explain why I'm getting that message). I did the same thing you did, tested the machine using the same cable on another tv, and it worked fine on the other tv. What's strange is I can connect the cable box to the tv using the identical HDMI cable and it worked fine. Tried again using the same cable from the PC to the tv, and either 1) blank screen, or 2) shrunken screen with the aforementioned error which will go blank once I open Media Center.

Sorry, I don't have an answer, but it seems to me Viewsonic hasn't made a good product in terms of connecting media PC's, for some reason. Of course, my tv is out of warranty at this point. If you find an answer, keep me posted, I'll do the same.

I have a Viewsonic VT2430 monitor/tv, and a Windows Vista 64, with ATI 4200 graphics chip PC.

Just performed windows update on my Dell Inspiron Desktop 560MT - Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 bit. I have been using dual monitors on the system since purchase. After performing windows update today my second monitor (connected by HDMI) will no longer display. The other monitor (the working one) is connected via VGA. The system does not recognize it is even connected. At start up however it will display up until login window. I am using two ViewSonic VX2453 Series monitors. I am desperate as I have to have both monitors for work. I have tried unplugging and replugging, restarting it with it unplugged and plugged. I uninstalled the update and have tried autodetect on the system all to no avail. Help!!

A:After Windows update 2nd Viewsonic monitor will no longer display

KChristians, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Sounds like you have WU set to automatically download and install updates, and it updated either the video or monitor driver. If that is what happened check your update history and you can uninstall it from there and should get you back to the previous drive.

Also if that s what it was you might want to set WU to not download and install drivers automatically, step #4 here,

Me and my friend just finished our computer, we had a few issues with the NZXT Phantom case at first: they didn't send us a few screws so we had to go to the local tech store and buy a few, but everything worked out.

Anyway

Our screen seems to be having a slight problem: the image of the screen is not taking up the entire space provided by the screen.
There is an option that we found: Auto Image Adjust, and I am sure this is the right one, except: it's disabled!

It's a ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED Full HD 1080p
We have Windows 7 installed on it, and everything is working fine.
The Screen Resolution is set to 1920 x 1080.
DPI Setting is at 150%


Thank's for the help!

So Riddle me this Tech Support Guys. Our Viewsonic vx2235wm Monitor recently started acting up.

Now by acting I mean the resolution is stuck at 1280x800. Instead of the native 1680x1050
So what have I done?
•Gotten unsigned and signed updated drivers for it from viewsonic. But it should run on Generic PnP Monitor drivers (it does, I tested it on other computers)
•Gotten the newest Windows 7 32-bit drivers for the laptop's Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
•Updated the driver of the Viewsonic Monitor manually to Generic PnP and restarted to no avail
•Contacted Viewsonic customer service where they told me stuff I already knew (ie: monitors are plug and play and shouldn't need drivers)

So here's the enigma.
#1: If I plug in the monitor to another laptop or another computer, resolution is fine (using the SAME VGA cable that's connected to the ailing laptop, trying to keep things consistent after all and heretofore it should be assumed, unless stated otherwise, that we use the same cables.)
#2: If I plug in one of our other monitors to the ailing laptop, Resolution is fine and the new monitor is detected no problem.
#3: When I plug in the viewsonic monitor to the ailing laptop, Generic Non-PnP Monitor is detected and no resolution options are given.

So anyone have any ideas? I figure something is saved in Windows that's detecting the new monitor as a Generic Non-PnP Monitor and I need to change it but I don't know how. Please help

Dear All Experts,

Hello! How are you all doing? Well today, I came across this Viewsonic LCD Monitor which looks quiet appealing and of course, being manufactured by the leading display technology company of the world  Viewsonic! Heres the link to the product:

Viewsonic VX2433wm (24inch HD LCD Monitor)
http://www.viewsonic.com/products/de...s/vx2433wm.htm

Now here's what I need to know:

My main use of an LCD Monitor will be to:

* Watch Movies (Which should include a DVD & High Definition (HD) Quality Videos).
* Play 3D and Normal Games.
* Movies like Jurassic Park, Speed, Titanic, Action Movies, etc...
* Web browsing, doing back work on PC, Listening to music.

So, this in short will be the purpose of using a new LCD Monitor. So far, I am using CRT Monitor.

Once you have gone through the above link, could you kindly let me know how well would this Viewsonic LCD Monitor fair in terms of my above mentioned usage.

BUT NOW HERE's A TwIsT >>> While looking forward to buy an LCD Monitor, one question that kills my decision of buying it is that What if a Touch Screen LCD Monitor will be made available once Windows 7 releases to users. Then would all these LCD Monitors sold out today will be consider completely outdated not only in terms of technology but features as well. However, there are few things that comes to my notice for going with an LCD Monitor and not a Touchscreen one...

Hi all,

This issue really bugs me, every few months it'll happen, one of my three screens (9/10 times it's the Acer), will display as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", with this it'll only display in 640*480 (usually 1920*1080, same as the other 2 screens).

This set up works perfectly most of the time, and has done for the last few years, but as I said it comes and goes. I've done a lot of research online and the best advice I can find is that when it happens if I unplug it all, and let the capacitors drain in the monitor and GPU then when reconnecting everything it'll work fine. I've done this before and it's not worked, I've also done it and it's worked. I've also had it in the past where it's just reverted back to how it's supposed to be mid use.

My set up:
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Display 3: Acer S240HL ([email protected]) <--- Displaying as "Generic Non-PnP Monitor ([email protected])"
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series

I've got the latest drivers for all the hardware, I've got the latest windows updates for everything. I've tried older versions of the drivers for the GPU, no difference with the issue.

I have a Viewsonic E-655 and when I put it on my computer nothing happens... if I pull out the power and then replaace it there is just five shimmering balck belts accross thre screen. I tried it on my Mum's computer, and it came up with the message Frequency Over range. What is this.
I had it out last night and had it plugged through a Sanyo projector - ie. the computer plugged into the projector and so did the monitor. Would this have done it? Also, carrying it back out to the car when it was raning might have gotten it wet?

Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Viewsonic Monitor "Frequency Over Range"

Only thing I can think of is that your video settings got changed somehow. Can you put another monitor on your machine, boot up into windows. go to start/settings/control panel/display/settings tab/advanced button/adapter tab/ in the drop down box if refresh rate is set to optimal change it to adapter default, save , shutdown and hook up the other monitor. Long shot, probably won't work

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

I'm having a problem with my computer outputing to my tv. I have 2 hd tvs, one is the Sony Bravia KDL-42V4100 and when i connect my PC through VGA it doesn't output in a 1080p resolution. On the other tv also a Bravia and this is 720p and it works just fine. But on the bigger 1080p Bravia the highest resolution can get is 1680x1050 and is being recognized by my video card as a Generic Non-PNP Monitor. It isn't a problem with VGA because i have tried DVI/HDMI from my friend. I stretched this resolution to fit but still has black bars on the desktop and even wider ones with movies and youtube videos. I am hoping to get this problem solved soon. I would like a quick response but a detailed one is more appreciated. Thanks in advance.

First I calmed down, thought it through. The damn thing worked yesterday. So that means, the system should already have everything I need to fix the problem. Right? Right! So...

*Right-click on your desktop and select "screen resolution".
*Select the monitor in question (in my case it was monitor #4, my 32" Vizio) right click on it and select properties.
*Select the Driver tab and click update driver.
*Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
*Uncheck the box "show compatable hardware"
*In standard monitor types (or your brand may be in the list) find the resolution your monitor was running (mine was 1920x1080 60Hz)
*Click next and it should install...and you may need to restart you computer, not sure.
* Last but not least, you may also need to go back and change the screen refresh rate. After it puts the new driver in, for some reason, it may be the correct resolution, but not the correct refresh rate. Change it in the monitor tab under ... Read more

Hello, I recently purchased a new PC which I'm positive can run two monitors simultaneously.
I currently have a monitor connected via DVI and a monitor connected via HMDI, they both are working but it shows the same screen on both monitors. I've tried to change the resolution on my monitors to have it extend seamlessly from the first monitor to the next, but it's only coming up with one monitor selection, and it is named 'generic pvp monitor on standard vga graphics adapter'. Every time I try to change the resolution on one screen it does it for both.

Any ideas on how I should proceed to get both monitors working the way I want?

My computer specs are -

AMD A8 6600K 3.90 GHz Quad Core Processor
Radeon HD 8570D Graphics

Do I just need to download some drivers or?

Hello there This is my first time ever using this forum, and I have a question which I have been trying to fix for a while now.
Sorry if I'm not that experienced because I only have been studying computing for 2 years, but anyway to the question. So about 2 days ago I plugged in my Xbox360 into my PC monitor by first removing the VGA connected to the monitor from the computer and then connected the special made Xbox360 VGA to my monitor, after I was done using it, I plugged back my PC's VGA monitor and and switched on my computer. Now this is where the trouble started because when the Windows start up animation came in I notices the resolution was to low and everything looked magnified, so I went to the screen resolution options which supposedly look like this , except of course the brand name, but mine isn'y like that, it's instead like this. Now I cannot choose the recommended screen res. but only list of resolutions which i don't know which one is good for my monitor. and I also noticed that small things such as text lost their quality and look somewhat faded a little, almost like when you turn anti-aliasing to low in a game. Anyway hope that someone helps me because it's quite frustrating for this to happen.

P.S- I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit and a ViewSonic 20" VG2021m monitor

Hi Angelo,

The video driver is only for the graphics card and not for the monitor. That has a separate driver of it's own if one is available for it. I did not see one listed for your monitor model number at Acer, but as long as you are able to use that native screen resolution you should be fine.

Hello, I recently bought a monitor that has been working perfect, the thing is that I had a VGA cable, now I had to change to DVI cable for a reason, since I changed it, I have my windows not recognizing the second monitor, saying "Generic non-PnP monitor" and has tons of resolutions, anyone know how I can make it recognize?

Check your GPU driver control program, for AMD there is "Use EDID (Extended Display Identification Data)" in CCC. It tells your computer which monitor it is and what it's capable of.

I have a Gateway LT2106 netbook that I recently purchased. It came with Windows 7 starter. I bought Windows 7 pro and installed the 64 bit version.

Gateway does not have a video driver for 64 bit and the 32 bit refuses to install.

My system is currently using the generic PnP Monitor driver but the resolution will not go higher than 1024x768. This is an issue because all of my windows now have scroll bars for left and right. Grrrrrrr

Is there another generic driver that I can use to get a higher resolution? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I am running Windows Vista 64bit I have (2) Nvidia 9800 GX2 video cards and a Asus Striker II Fomula mother board and a Veiwsonic VM2235wm monitor. No matter what I am trying I cant get my computer to find my monitor. So I can only set my resolution to 1024x768. When I start my computer it gets to the Windows Vista load screen and then it goes into hibernation mode for some reason and then I have to turn the monitor off and then turn it back on again in order to get any picture. I have tried to install multiple video card drivers and I have tried to use the drivers from the CD i got with the monitor along with the drivers from Viewsonics web page. Even when I try to manually load the drivers it still just goes right to Generic PnP Monitor. I hope someone can help me fix my problem here. Thanks

Is this a new build? Did you have one GX2 and added another? What is exactly the procedure that you followed to install the drivers? Did you installed one driver, then reinstalled another? Give some specifics. I had a problem with my monitor too, and it turned out to be a damaged color profile. When I changed it, it turned out just fine.

So I restarted my machine one day and lo and behold Windows/Nvidia is no longer recognising my LG Flatron 17" LCD. Instead it is being detected as a "generic non pnp monitor" which prevented me from setting correct native resolutions.

The issue revolved around the EDID in my monitor somehow gone corrupted. So we need to trick windows/nvidia into recognising a new EDID

Solution tutorial is here:

Essentially you need to recreate the .inf file and force a new driver install. Problem solved.

I am using a 22" screen for my primary screen and the laptop lid open for a secondary screen. The main screens resolution is 1680x1050, I can set it to anything I want and it's always using the full screen. The laptop screen on the other hand will only use the full screen if it's at 1400x1050 resolution (max for that screen, IBM Thinkpad T43). With the large 22" screen I have no trouble reading the screen at high resolutions, the screen is huge, with the little 14" screen though I have to strain to read the screen at 1400x1050.

The problem is when I set the laptop screen to anything lower than 1400x1050, it uses less of the screen. Preferrably I want it at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (I dont know which I want yet as I can't see the freaking screen at that resolution). At 1280x1024 for instance the useable screen is just a box in the middle, so the "1280x1024" is still barely readable for me cause it's shrunk from full screen, plus it's just annoying only using a portion of the screen.

I have played with the ATI Control Center, the Thinkpad display settings and windows display settings and just cannot get this thing to go full screen at lower resolutions when docked and using the external monitor.

Anyway to resolve this?

I'm wondering if I need to fix/do anything.

I have the latest Huey Pro 1.5.1 to calibrate my dual samsung monitors. I saved two profiles, one for each but have no idea where they are stored, and search doesn't find them. Only one profile shows up in the list.

I have 2 samsung monitors, different models.

One installed correctly: SyncMaster 2494SW(digital) but that's not my main monitor and I can't find the profile for that one.

The other monitor is a syncmaster 2493HM and it is using the HDMI connection (in case that matters) and is my primary monitor. Control panel says it's a syncmaster but no model. Device manager says it's a generic pnp monitor.

I guess since I do my photo editing on the one I have a profile for, I can just assign that profile to both monitors (even tho it's not quite right and the huey should allow me to profile seperately) and live with it. But is there anything I should do to correct the pnp listing so it reads what it really is?

A:dual monitor, one listed as generic pnp?

Install the driver for it, and it should recognize it in Device Manager. Here is your driver for the 2493HM. The .exe, under Downloads-Driver.

Don't see any 2494SW. There is one for the 2494HM though. Sure it has SW at the end?

Until yesterday, I was able to successfully enjoy a dual monitor on my Acer Aspire 5532 using a AOC 2230 monitor. Unfortunately, today, when I came back from my friends house with my laptop and went to set everything up (plug in all USB, plug in 2nd monitor, and charger) the 2nd monitor wasn't being detected properly. Wrong resolution, wrong driver, etc. As of now, when I try to change the driver to what it was before. It says that it does it succesfully, but then under "Display" in "Screen Resolution" it changes from "Generic Non-PnP Monitor" to "Display device on: VGA". Also, this isn't just a problem that I seem to be having on Windows 7, I went to boot up Ubuntu Linux, (my second OS that I have installed on my computer) and it was having some kind of problems on there as well. I have been looking around and some people are saying that it's possible that my EDID is bad.. I have no idea. Someone please through out some suggestions cause that EDID solution is probably going to be the last thing I attempt before I'm screwed.. (I don't care if the solution involves forcing the correct resolution and still having a generic non-pnp driver)

OK as Ive been looking around the site Ive noticed that there are many issues like this one, and Im sure there are plenty of people out there that have this problem...

My "Windows Experience Index" is at a 1.0 only because my Graphics, and Gaming Graphics rating are at 1.0. Everything else is at 5.9 which I can live with.

When I look at my adavanced settings for my monitor it Shows my Nvidia GPU but only running with 14 MB total avail mem. And I know that NOT right. Unfortunatly when I went to Nvidia's site and ran the auto detect it said that I didnt even have their product and that I had the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

I can't seem to find the right drivers for this to fix it all, and I would love to be able to "Experience" Windows 7 at its fullest. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully the attached photos will give you an idea as to what Im working with.

Also When i toubleshoot Aero Ive received this message:
"The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver."

And when I try to change my screensaver to a 3D one it states that I either need a newer graphics card or one that is compatible with Direct3D. So yeah. Thats about where Im at.

I'm pretty sure the reason I can't change the resolution on my monitor is because it is listed as Generic PnP in Device Manager. Although in Control Panel-->Display the model number is listed.

It's a seven year old monitor. Model Sony SDM-HS73. Should I attempt to install a driver? Will that allow me to change resolution? If so how do I find the driver?

I want to see if going lower than 1280 x 1024 may allow me to see the text on the screen a little better. But if it's more trouble than it's worth...

A:Monitor is listed as generic, can't change resolution.

I just took a quick look at Sony for your monitor:

Sony eSupport - SDM-HS73 - News & Alerts

The drop down list under drivers doesn't show anything for Windows 7 or Vista.

I've at times used a generic video driver and did not notice anything inferior about it.

I guess you could experiment with an XP driver, maybe in compatible mode?

It's entirely possible Sony has quit driver development for this monitor and that you have no choice other than the generic driver you are now using.

Hello.

My computer currently has 3 monitors connected to it. 2 through the graphics card (R9 280), 1 through the integrated graphics (AMD HD 3000). Not sure when why or how, but the integrated graphics card can never pick up what type of monitor is connected to it... so it always gives me a bunch of generic 4:3 resolutions...

I've tried uninstalling the drivers and letting them reinstall. I've tried swapping around the cables to see if i could get lucky with one of the other screens, but they all face the same issues. I've tried buying brand new cables across the board because sometimes people say that's the issue. But not success.

The cloest thing i have is apparently a custom resolution setter, but it was created for windows 7 in mind and doesn't seem to work on windows 10 (PowerStrip).

My question is, is there anyway to format the list so i can select the correct resolution? It's a Toshiba TV/Monitor and it seems like every thing else attached to my pc (even 3rd party programs i tried to use to forcably change the resolution) can spot it and hand me back the correct resolution but i can't seem to change it. I get Genertic pnp through the control panel (the only place the monitor shows up in) and even then the correct driver doesn't show, it's the Microsoft Generic driver.

this latest batch of problems has me kinda ticked and sorta fed up entirely, of course geeksquad is a joke of a company, who wont honor their obligation when i bought my laptop, but thats a rant for another day.

so this one day, i restart my computer, just like any other time, and next thing i know, upon restart, i have 8 bit. with a 800x600, i check to see if maybe its just a video driver issue, and my gforce is gone, it's replaced with " generic non-Pnp monitor standard VGA graphics adapter ".

To top it off, i forget what peice of hardware i had originally.

So now whenever i restart my computer, or shut it off, then turn it back on again, my screen looks as if an 8th grader created a new theme for my laptop...

My hardware/software:
-Acer X223W Monitor

-Windows 7 64

Here's the problem:

I was using my computer when my mother accidentally hit the room switch which turns my entire rig off. Annoyed, I turn my computer back on and now my screen resolution is all messed up. On top of that I can't open Chrome due to misplaced files.

I reinstalled all my drivers but instead of detecting the name of my monitor, it just shows Generic PnP Monitor instead.
I pick the best screen res(1600 x 1200) but that is clearly wrong(but the best i can do).

I've done a system restore and reinstalled all my drivers. I looked for the Acer X223W drivers but all I got was a security catalog, setup information, and an ICC profile that doesn't do anything when I run it. I searched for driver updates on device manager but it says the Generic PnP monitor driver is up to date.

My fear is that this is truly a hardware problem from the light switch, and nothing but a new monitor will fix. Anyone care to dig into this one?

A:Standard VGA Graphics Card and Generic Non-PnP Monitor.. HELP!!

ezminnie, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Let me guess, a Sony or Toshiba laptop. If that is the case then the drivers directly from Nvidia will never install on it as neither of them will allow it. The only way to install something other than the driver from Sony or Toshiba (which really is nothing more than the reference Nvidia driver modded with the device IDs that Sony and Toshiba use, and whatever extra bits if any to work with the display on the laptop) is to use a modded driver. You can try one of the ones from here,

Drivers | drivers for mobile cards and laptops | laptopvideo2go.com

Go for one from the 275.xx and down as I haven't seen too many saying much good about the latest 280 beta driver. If those fail to install you can always use whatever Windows 7 or Vista driver (the Vista driver will work in Windows 7) from your laptop manufacturer.

Hey everybody,

So I recently aquired a Sansui SLED2453w monitor, and it ran fine for a little while, but now it's set to a resolution of 1280x1024, and is labeled as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor". This resolution is OKAY, but it's the highest that Windows is allowing me to choose, without saying it's unsupported. I had it running on a above 1700 resolution when it worked. I've tried updating it's driver, "detecting" it, and a couple other methods.

I've, of course, unplugged it and reconnected to no avail.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Any help is thoroughly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

According to some specs I found, it is full 1080p with two HDMI connections. How are you connecting it to your GPU? According to AMD, your card supports 1080p using a HDMI cable. The only other thing is to check in the CCC and look under "Desktop Management" and see what the refresh rate is and Desktop area under basic and HDTV and see what your options are...and manually change them.

I have read this post: Generic Non-Pnp Monitor problem please help

and it seems similar to my problem but not quite the same. Before I proceed, I wanted to ask if the above solution will likely work for my problem.

I have an hp pavilion pc windows 7 with a radeon 5770, connected to two displays. I started up the computer about 4 months ago. The two displays are:

1)a pioneer vsx 1020 a/v receiver (in turn connected to my toshiba hdtv) via hdmi

2)an old (2001 or so) acer 1916 monitor

Everything was working fine for a while. I could control music selection (pandora) on the acer monitor while just having the a/v receiver on and not the hdtv, and it would be in dual display mode (both hdtv and monitor would default to 1280X1024 resolution---lowest resolution between the pair). Or I could extend displays and view hdtv in full ~1920X1000 hd resolution. When I chose extended display settings, it would recognize the acer monitor and recommend the correct resolution per this image: http://www.greenandtheblue.com/homet...desktop_PC.png.

Just a few days ago, I turned on the a/v receiver and the acer monitor (without turning on the hdtv) and the display was just the background and the resolution was too large on the acer monitor.

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

While using my desktop normally my monitor keeps flashing sometimes and plays the driver "plug" "unplug" sound (well it sounds like it)

Then I go check my resolution by right clicking > Scree Resolutions >>>> Here I see my on the display bar changes after the "plug" "unplug" sound comes from "Generic Non-PnP" to "SyncMaster" and vice-versa.

Please note that the screen keeps running normally on the 1680x1500 resolution on both displays, but the transition between those two is very annoying.

I cannot seem to stop it!

I have installed all newest drivers, and driver for my monitor.

Thank you.

Welcome to Seven Forums hadihdd. Try this, it just may work. Unplug the video cable from the monitor to the PC. Shut down the PC. Unplug both the PC and the Monitor for 30 minutes. Reconnect the video cable, and the power to both. Reboot and see if this helps. A Guy

My Satellite P50C works fine but when I look at device manager the monitor driver is just a standard Windows generic plug and play. I have had a look at the available drivers and cant see anything that looks like one - there are two drivers - one each for Nvidia and Intel but as i already have them installed they obviously do not provide a monitor driver. Is this usual or is there a Toshiba tru-bright monitor driver that I am missing? Windows 10 anniversary 64bit version.

I have two HP PC's, both connected to a IOGEAR USB KVM Switch. My Home Desktop is an HP Pavilion Elite HPE. My Work Laptop is an HP 6530b. The monitor is an HP 2010i. The home desktop is running Windows 7 Home Premium, while the work laptop is on Windows 7 Enterprise.

The ideal screen resolution (and my preferred) is 1600x900. My Desktop Pavilion never has any issue with proper screen identification. My Work Laptop 6530b, however, drives me nuts. Not every time, but probably about 50% of the time, when it boots up it does not recognize the monitor and instead changes the settings to Generic Non-pnp monitor. Then to make things worse, even if I go into Control Panel and click on 'Detect', it will find I have an HP 2010i monitor, but it still won't allow the proper Screen resolution (not high enough). If I reboot, SOMETIMES it will come up with finding the monitor and will then allow me to change the screen resolution to 1600x900. But of course every time I go through this, I have to re-arrange my desktop icons because they get scrambled every time the screen resolution gets changed.

I cannot figure out the pattern of why sometimes I can boot up the laptop just fine with no corrections needed and other times the laptop will not recognize the monitor. All the drivers are up to date. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hello everybody! Thanks in advance for looking into this VERY frustrating case of malware. I am the desktop tech for a small company and one of my users downloaded My Kaza Gold and over the course of a weekend got more than The Beach Boys. =( After uninstall the crap-ware I did my usual google searching to find out fixes for what our in house Trend Micro calls "Freeloader_Smitfraud" and "RAP_Generic" and what my eyes says is an infection from, at least, the "Internet Speed Monitor". I did find multiple (5+) scanner tools and recomendations to take care of both issues but either those tools found nothing or the fixes mentioned weren't applicable. I don't remember all of the tools I ran becuase this has been going on for over a week. To date I do remember running updated versions of Spybot, Ad-aware, Trend Micro (our in house solution for AV), and Spy Sweeper (full retail). I have since started documenting the steps I am taking and have the following to report. System Restore settings = even though I have switched this off it keeps being turned on. I turned it off once again.ATF Cleaner = clean bill of healthAVG AntiSpyware tool = Clean bill of healthSUPERAntiSpyware Home Edition = I ran this once, found nothing, and discovered that the updater was hidden behind the main screen. Grrr. I finished the update and reran the scan. This time it found several malware. I think that it cleared out all of the instances. I captured the log a... Read more

Salut!
I just recieved my new pc and unfortunately its not working very well.

System specs(made from components which I chose and I hope everything is compatible):
Mobo: Asrock 970 Extreme3
CPU: Phenom x4 Phenom 965 BE
GPU: Asus HD 6870 DirectCU
RAM: Patriot 4gb 1333mhz
HDD: WD Cavier Blue 500gb Sata3, 16mb
PSU: Seasonic S12II-520w Bronze

I`m using a old CRT Monitor 17'' so I had to use the dvi>vga adaptor.
While installing Windows7 Ultimate 64 and after it finished my screen resolution was very low and the colors were burnt.
My screen resolution is stuck on 640x480. Here a few pictures with what I`m dealing with.


I tried to install the latest ati drivers from their official site but because my screen resolution is so low I can`t hit Next. ( I can`t move the window up because it bounces back and keys don`t work)
Also I tried the driver with which the video card came. The installion went fine but after I restarted the system for the settings to be activated after the win7 logo the screen just stays black.

What could be the problem?
-drivers? I can`t get them right...are there drivers for monitors? I never had to install any on my old configuration. I remember I have somewhere a cd from the monitor but I never used it and I doubt it will work with win7.
-my monitor or the dvi vga adaptor
-malfunctioning video card
-motherboard bios ( should I make an update?, I checked their update site and all were for cpu)
-New video card+win7= overkill for my 17'' crt monitor?

A:New system stuck on Generic Non PnP Monitor VGA Graphics Adapter

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You have to learn to hit the Buttons with the Tab, Arrow, Page up and Page down Keys.

As you don't see the focus when navigating with these keys, you shall have to do it by trial and error. Once the focus comes on the hidden Next Button by trial and Error just press the Enter Key.

It doesn't really matter if you hit Enter without the focus on Next. At worst the application would shut down but you can start it again.

Sometimes you are able to see the Next Button if you unlock the Task Bar and pull it down. So try that first.

Hi,

This problem is driving me absolutely crazy. I have a gift PC with a totally fresh Windows 10 install. I junked my old computer and plugged the new PC into my old monitor. And that's when the problems started. Now, before you jump down my throat, I have a NVIDIA GeForce 520 graphics card running driver version 368.22 (the one that came out last week). It's not the graphics card. And on my old PC, this monitor (LG Flatron L1910B) ran at 1600x1200 @ 75 Hz. Now, with a far more powerful graphics card, I'm only getting 1280x1024 @ 60 Hz.

The problem is definitely this stupid Generic PnP Monitor driver. I have looked all over the place, but I can't seem to find a L1910B digital driver. I'm at wits end. There has to be a solution to this that isn't "buy a new monitor", right????

If the monitor worked at 1600x1200 on one computer but can only get 1280x1024 on another how can that be the monitor's fault, it can only work at what the video adapter or card can provide. Did you try setting the frequency at 75Hz like on the older computer? Or is that even a choice. My Desktops live quite happily with 1440x900 resolution at 60Hz, 4 feeding the same HP Compaq L2105tm Touchscreen monitor through a KVM switch. The frequency choices for it are only 60Hz and 75Hz.

Can someone tell me how to stop Vista just loading the generic PnP monitor driver when I am trying to install an NEC monitor driver?

I have a vista business 32-bit laptop and i am trying to install a second NEC monitor but vista wont use the driver that comes with it, it keeps installing the generic one which wont work properly with the monitor.

A:how do you stop Vista just loading the generic PnP monitor driver

have you tried just adding the colour profile from your drivers manually?

right click desktop and select personalise

select display settings

select advanced settings

the select colour management

then the colour management tab

click add

then browse to your colour profile

find it the select ADD

go back to the devices tab and highlight your newly added colour prfile (in ICC profiles) and select set as default prfile

then hit the advanced tab and under device prfile in the drop down list select the same prfile (if its not already selected) then just close all the windows

job done

dont worry about the generic monitor thing vista installs theres no way around it , its either that or a blank display and that makes it really hard to install anything
edit

im wondering why i missed out the o in profile all the time?? :P

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7-64bit and the computer has been running very smooth for the last week. Last night (08/18/2016) I installed a couple of updates and while checking the reliability monitor in the action center after installing the updates I noticed a new entry "Generic Volume Shadow Copy"; I'm aware that it's related to restore points, but I've never seen this entry in the reliability monitor section. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Everytime I create a Restore Point, I notice that "Generic Volume Shadow copy" is listed in the Action center.  Should I be concerned?  I don't remember seeing that listing before.  I have a done a couple of System Restore points but none of them show up in the action center as "Generic volume shadow copy."
