Ever since I put on a new version of xp the display on the monitor flips when I scoll, as if with each scroll a new page appears. It is not a smooth steady scroll. I have been told that I need video drivers. My monitor is a 17in StarLogic. Is this true? If so where I can get them? franklingreen.

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.
On the HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD, select Install from a list of specific location (ADVANCED) then click Next.

Additional monitor drivers are usual not needed. What do you have for a video adapter and are those drivers installed? Right click on My Computer choose Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. What information is listed under Video Adapters?
Also what are your screen resolution and refresh settings?

I am currently using a Gateway MT3707 (Laptop)

It came with vista home premium, and I have successfully configured XP Pro SP2 as a dual boot option. But it would not recognize my drivers.

Is that normal? Because I downloaded the driver for ATI RADEON X200M and it says driver not recognized? But I am currently using that in vista. Please help! Thanks!


You'll need the XP drivers for XP, not the Vista drivers. Try these ones :

Hi, I'm new to these forums bu noticed they are fairly active and decided I should post my problem here in hopes for some quick help

First off, system specs
-Intel P4 1.8 ghz
-512 ddr RAM
-Ge force 3 ti 200
-SB Live 5.1
-WinXP Pro
(note: I have all teh up-to-date drivers for everything on my computer)

I recently did a format and reinstalled everything including the newest Nvidia approved drivers and all of a sudden it takes me two minutes to get to my desktop. First, at the screen where the windows bar goes across the screen it will freeze. It freezes for about 40 seconds, then the bar will finish its thing and I'll go onto the next screen which is entirely black. It will freeze for about 45-60 seconds. I get to my desktop and then everything is fine.

Things I should point out:
-I have since uninstalled the drivers and I boot in less then 15 seconds
-Before I formatted, the exact same drivers gave me no problems
-My friend pointed out that my NIC card and Video card share the same irq which isnt supposed to be a problem with the way winXP runs. I dont have any conflicts (so windows tells me) and I'm not sure if they shared the same irq or not before I formatted (I'm just learning all this new stuff)

If someone could help me out or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Keep in mind, I'm not very computer smart
Ps. I accidently posted this in a different thread. Sorry about the double post.

Got a problem I've never seen anywhere before. My 19" Mag InnoVision 800V started giving me "I'm gonna fail" symptoms (after less than 2 years, BTW!), so I went looking for a new monitor. First tried a Philips 109B20 (19"). It was fine save except for one thing: If the computer went into sleep mode, which I have it set to do after 2 hours, when it comes out, the display is shifted better than an inch to the left; you can no longer see the Start button on the TaskBar or any desktop icons along the left side. If I reposition it, everything is A-OK until I reboot for some reason. Then the display shifts better than an inch TO THE RIGHT!!

If after coming out of sleep mode with the display shifted left, I reboot the computer without first changing the display position, it comes back to where it should be.

The Mag didn't do this, so I assumed it was the Philips. Returned it and got a Samsung 955DF.... and guess what? It does the same thing. So I conclude it's the video card (NVidia GeForce 256, 32MB VRAM). I run the monitor at 1024 x 768, 32-bit color.

I've looked at the options in the Display program in the Control Panel, but see nothing about controlling this except "Reset display on suspend". It was originally checked. I tried unchecking it, but the monitors behave the same.

What am I missing here? Anybody got any ideas why the display shifts like this?

A:{RESOLVED}New Monitor

Important addendum to my original message. I found the Samsung 955DF not to my liking -- refresh rate is abysmal (obvious flicker) -- so I reconnected my ailing Mag monitor. It is now doing the same thing the new monitors did. It did NOT do this before I disconnected it and installed the Philips 109B20 monitor.

What's going on? Why am I now having display shift problems I NEVER had before?

I recently removed the ethernet card from my PC, no longer have high speed cable internet. Installed a new modem but the computer doesn't find the drivers, even with the CD setup. I have Windows 98. Several years ago, when the ethernet card was installed, we had to remove my modem due to conflict. I have a new PCI Creative Blaster 56kV.90 modem. The D:\ recognizes the CD intall disc, so think the CD D:\ is working. I've reinstalled Windows 98 (without reformatting C:\) but didn't help. Don't see any IRQ conflicts.

I have a celeron 400 using win 98. My machine has been put together by a friend. It has a sound card, but no software for the sound card. I have no idea what kind of sound card (doesn't say anything on it). Are there any "generic" audio drivers out there that would cover different sound cards. I am not seeking high quality, but would like to be able to listen to music. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

A:{RESOLVED} sound card drivers

Nope. We need to know what the card is.

It will say something on it, somewhere. Check on the chips themselves for something like ESS1788 or CM8331 or something like that. That is the chipset on the card and we can get drivers based on that.

I can remote desktop to the computer just fine, and everything works... but as soon as I attempt to use the computer locally the monitor does not receive a signal from the computer. When this first happened I was logging into the computer locally. I logged into my account and then the monitor went black, and has remained this way.

Well, this has been bugging me for a few weeks now.

I have a 19" Proview monitor, and just recently thse wavy lines appear, usually at the top and bottom of the screen.

I've changed the refresh rate higher, then lower. The screen size is 1024x768. The recomended rate is 90Hz for this size, and mine goes up to 85. Back to 80 again, as 85 hurt the old eyes

Anyway, the first time this happened, I thought I was seeing things, or that I was hungover. But its happening most of the time.

Its under warrenty, but, and this will be just my luck, it happens when it wants to.

For instance, since Friday, its been fine. Last night, it appeared. If I take it to PCWorld and they don't see anything, they'll blame my pc.

I've tried it on 2 pc's, no joy. Could it be that these are Pentium 2, 128MB ram, low end spec, and this is a 'better' monitor?

Someone suggested speakers near it. I'll move them across the desk, and see if that helps tonight.

Also, if the lines are there, its only when I open a program. For instance, IE is running - wavy lines. Then, open WinMX at the same time. IE - wavy, WinMX - fine. So, surely this is nothing to do with the monitor?

I'm trying to get a P3, 512RAM pc up and running, but the floppy is causing some problems. Another thread soon

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance

I don't know if that's a very exact description of the problem, but I think it's close enough.

My daughter was just given a HP Vectra VL 5 200. It's a Pentium 2 - 233 I think? something like that? and has 80 megs RAM. It has onboard video, s3 trio 64 V2 DX 775, 2 megs RAM.

We are running Windows 98 on it. I networked it to my Internet hub to get her online, and immediately downloaded AVG Antivirus, which found a worm. In trying to get rid of it we lost the ability to get on the Net, so I formatted and reinstalled. No problem right? Right. Until I got to installing the video drivers. It recognised the card fine, installed correct drivers etc, and sat there happily telling me the device was working correctly. Then I tried to change the resolution to 860X640, and it went all squiggles and wavy lines. I had to reboot.

Found a new driver, installed it (hours of searching later) and when I changed the resolution this time it worked. Woo! Until rebooting. Then it's all back to squiggly lines and so on, I have to reboot in safe mode, set it to 16 colours (to avoid it rebooting again with that resolution), reboot and set to 16 bit colour, then reboot and set to the resolution we want (no games or anything show in her screen for 640x480).

I connected the monitor to the one with no monitor, a 266mhz pc with a monitor card installed in a slot. It works fine.

There is still power to the monitor as the LED changes from green to yellow.. It just goes into, I think, sleep mode. The pc continues to boot properly and all shared files on the pc can be accessed by the other pc's through the network. I tried to adjust the settings in set up mode which can be accessed before the monitor shuts down. Nothing seems to work.

I have an Athlon XP 1533mhz, Win XP, 256mb ram, 40 gig HD, GeForce3 Golden Sample cpu, and last night I had to do a hard shutdown. When I attempted to reboot, the monitor simply clicked off (into standby mode) while the comptuer began booting up. I figured it wasn't a big deal so turned the monitor on to find a blank monitor check screen that the monitor displays when the monitor power is on but the CPU is not. I repeatedly tryed rebooting, each time having the monitor turn off. Somtimes, the monitor would simply slip into standby as soon as I powered on the PC, and other times the cpu boot up managed to get somewhat far before the monitor shut off. I repeatedly checked the cables and GeForce to make sure everything was plugged in. I'm still at a loss to think of what the problem is. I'm not sure wehther I have a virus, a GeForce/Driver/HD malfunction, a faulty cable, or what. I wouldn't assume it's the cable since the monitor problem is very consistant. I also don't believe it's the monitor, since it appears to be working fine until it slips into standby.

I have a flash card reader from kodak, I recently reformatted my hard drive and had to re-install my card reader software. The reader is plugged into a usb port, and the software is loaded, but the drives are not created. The kodak software is kodak picture software for card reader-writers v1.4.1

When it is loaded correctly it will add 3 extra drives to (my computer), each one for a different type of flash card, these drives are not showing up.

This is the card reader

I am not sure I am in the correct forum but this problem is related to an XP upgrade I did for a friend's Dell 4100 which had Win ME on it. This friend lives an hour away from me and I am trying to trouble shoot this problem from my home.

Before the XP upgrade my friend gave me his PC box only (no monitor, mouse or keyboard). I hooked it up to my old Gateway 17" Trinitron, mouse and keyboard and the XP upgrade went fine on my equipment. Since I had no problem with my 17 " Gateway monitor I did not download the latest XP Nvidia driver from their website.

My friend picked up the machine yesterday and when he tried to hook up his Dell Trinitron monitor and run it, he got a message that goes something like "monitor is in power standby mode and needs to be reset by a command from the PC". At this point you can not see anything else on the monitor so he is dead in the water and does not have an alternate monitor or my monitor at his home to fix this problem.

We played with it over the phone by turning it on and off several times to no avail--I think it is hooked up correctly and this monitor was working fine before the upgrade.

Called Dell and they recommended we download the XP driver from Nvidia which I did and which I will burn to a CD. I can not get to his place till this weeked to bring my monitor and the CD.

Was wondering if there is some interim fix to this problem I could tell my friend over the phone to try to get this monitor running without... Read more

Hello all! I just re-formatted my system. Win 95/200mhz 64 ram. I have an Iomagic video card and downloaded the drivers, but when I restart, the screen stays blank. I believe it is my monitors refresher rate. My default setting now is standard display adapter vga. Problem is I dont know what kind of monitor this is!!!!!! It was one of those no-names that I got at an office store. It had one page of instructions, and that I can not find. No name on the back of it or anywhere else I see. Is there a site that has generic drivers that I can get more than the basic 16 colors I now do? The drivers on my win95 cd do nothing. Is this even my problem, or am I way off?

Samsung's site doesn't even acknowledge that they ever built it.

Generally the Plug-n-Play Monitor Monitor driver supplied by Windows by default is just fine and most monitors do not require anything more. If you only have 16 Colors and a resolution of 640x480 then you may need to install teh Video Card drivers to get anything higher.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I've been doing OK with the driver issues in Vista x64 but have run into a road block with the monitor drivers.
It's a Viewsonic Graphic Series G220F and I have the Vista x64 driver from View sonic but it doesn't install.
They even know it won't install because at the end of installation there is a pop up telling you how to manually install the driver-which doesn't work either.
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.

Check it out here.

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.

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.

I have a plug and play monitor, model number ADV-172 REV A. I was hoping if someone could help identify the make, so I could see if there were any drivers available for better performance etc. Any help would be appreciated as this has been niggling me for months.

A:I need to identify a monitor for drivers

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your monitor is an Advent ADV-172. It is a cheap plug and play monitor, and therefore wont have any drivers available.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

My system is Win XP Home Edition SP3 and up to date. I have just bought and installed a new monitor an AOC 2436Pwa. I switched off my PC, plugged in the VGA cable at both ends and attached the power cable. Started PC and I have sound and vision, I inserted the Installation CD that came with the monitor and read through the various instructions. I went to install the driver on the disc and followed the instructions but when I am asked to choose the drive for the disc Windows tells me that there isn't anything there. Even when I browse to the disc drive I get the same result. Windows seems to be using the same plug and play driver as was used for my previous two monitors for this new one. Two questions, is it neccessary/better to install the drivers which came with the monitor instruction disc or and will it have any advantages or should I just leave it as it is?.

I have never had to use a montior driver. If it's not broke, don't fix it.

I have a basic PC with no graphics card and the monitor was working fine until i upgraded what was Windows XP PRO SP1 to SP2, when i booted up the resolution and colour wernt right so i went into the dekstop properties and tried to mess with it but i couldnt get anything to work.
During this process it looks like i have disabled the monitor drivers so now when i startup the Bios shows and the Windows startup screen but then the screen goes blank...and nothing!
Dont worry, im not writing this blind im on another computer!

Dear all,

I've just released the very first version of DUMo - Drivers Update Monitor

DUMo notifies users when updates are available for their hardware drivers.

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.

Please post feedback or use this thread for any questions !

Already many thanks.

normally you don't need any monitor drivers. Do you have any specific problem with the screen?

I am current using a Nvidia 9800 GTX/GTX+ with driver version It works fine at this setting. Yet whenever I try to update the driver, whether its to a more recent version or a slightly older one, my monitor will go blank after the windows splash screen. I recently had some other issues with my PC, but those were related to RAM and at this point I have updated the RAM and the blue screens from that have gone away. I was hoping that doing that would fix this issue, but obviously it has not. What might be causing this problem and how do I go about fixing it?

I suppose I should also mention that this is only when booting windows normally, I can still access safe mode perfectly fine.

A:Monitor goes blank after updating drivers

Drivers make so little difference, that I would first see how it runs with the driver that works. You probably do not need to make a change. You simply will not see a reason to change unless you are changing a specific component.

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.

(worse case scenario; if you have an XP installation disk, you can perform a Windows "repair install.")

Yes, there are drivers for your monitor.

I have a ATI Radeon 7500 and i can't let windows 7 Build 7600 find it. It says under display monitor its a Standard VGA graphics adapter. I'm getting really annoyed because i can't play counter-strike...and i installed many different drivers for it but it just doesn't work. and i also wanted the Control Center but idk how as well. I upgraded today to windows 7 from XP...and dumb me didnt backup ANYTHING after a full clean wipe. So im getting really agitated and not patient about it. please help!!

and as well with my monitor display says Generic pnp Monitor and i can't find the drivers for my monitor anywhere! even on the gateway site. I have a 19" Gateway LE HD widescreen. please help me!

A:Display and Monitor Drivers PROBLEM!!

I'm assuming that's an AGP card? I'll set you up with how to install the latest 9.10 beta. I'm almost sure I can get your card to work with this under 7. All you need to do is go to device manager, right click card and choose properties, go to details tab, change the property drop down to say hardware ids. There should be shown a few lines.

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. When the installer is done extracting, then close it...which is before it start actually installing. Then I'll have further instructions later.

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?

My 970 is out for RMA, and so now I am using my A10-7850k until then.  I enabled onboard graphics in my UEFI, even restored everything to default.  I went to install the latest Crimson drivers (16.3.2), and when I reboot I see the Windows boot logo, but then the screen goes black with "No signal" afterwards.  Windows boots in as I can hear the sound. 
I have used DDU to uninstall all drivers, and I have tried reinstalling drivers multiple times.  I have even tried the 15.11 and 15.3 Catalyst drivers as well.  The computer is able to display just fine WITHOUT drivers installed, but as soon as I install them and reboot, nothing.  It works fine in Safe Mode as well.  I reinstalled Windows, and still no luck.
Does anyone have any ideas?

I tried for 10 hours to get SP2 to download and was failed twice. Finally got it and at the very end was rewarded with their changing the device manager type and driver for my Nec Multisync A700+. WOW is this big text can hardly read what I'm writing. Watching the install they at first made backups of all devices. Why would they go and change them at the end to one that doesn't fit? My problem is that this monitor came from my daughter and is umpteen years old and I don't have any info or drivers. How does one go about getting the info off the net and inserting it into device manager? Never done this before but I know it happens often. Advice Please? Thanks BIG , Paul

A:Solved: Change monitor & drivers on going to SP2

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.
