Preferred Solution: my SP2309w monitor not compatible with Windows 10 upgrade

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


The webcam in my Dell SP2309W monitor worked just fine with the Aug 2015 version of WIN 10, but after installing the Anniversary upgrade (1607) it crashes the computer to a BSOD. I can only stop this by unplugging the USB connection to the monitor -  and thus losing both webcam and USB hub. I know Dell says (deplorably) that "they don't support WIN 10 with this monitor"  but there was no problem with the original version of WIN10. Does anyone know of updated drivers or other workaround that will restore use of the webcam?

I have the HP w2338h 23-inch LCD Monitor and am attempting to upgrade to Win 10 but it will not let me due to monitor not compatible.  I've gone to support page and when I change opp sys to win 10 no drivers are found.  Please advise.

A:HP w2338h 23-inch LCD Monitor not compatible with Windows 10

BBartok It's unlikely that's the real problem, as monitors generally do not need or use drivers. We need the detail product number of your PC.  There should be a sticker with this information on the case.It will look something like this:  The product number we need it item#3. Also, I see you're running Win10. Did the PC come preinstalled with Win10? Or, did you upgrade it from a prior OS to Win10?If you did the upgrade, how long ago was that, and what was the prior OS?We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

I have a HP Envy dv6z, which came with a AMD Radeon graphic display card. I have a HP 2009m external monitor. On Windows 8, everything worked. When I upgraded to Windows 10, my external monitor is no longer detected. From I have learned, it does not appear that HP or AMD is upgrading the driver for Windows 10. If this is not true, please let me know where I can find the new drivers. I believe my only option is to buy a new monitor. I have these questions ... 1. Recommendations for monitors that have drivers compatible with Windows 10?2. Will I have to replace my graphics card (assuming AMD will no longer be my graphic display)? Any other thoughts or ideas are welcome.  

A:How to find an external monitor compatible with Windows 10

We need the full model number of the laptop but I suspect that when you upgraded to Windows 10 your video is now running a generic driver that does not support the HDMI port. Go into device manager and see what is shown for "display adapter" please. The problem is not the driver for the monitor it is the video card driver. There is no way to replace the video card. We just need to get the right Windows 10 drivers installed to make the external monitor work. It is connected by HDMI, right, not VGA?

Is the Dell Monitor(E2216Hvm Black) compatible with Windows 10?

A:Dell Monitor(E2216Hvm Black) compatible with Windows 10

Hi, Dell E2216HVM is not an HP product but yes, it is compatible. The only thing you need to check: it only has VGA port therefore you need to use the right cable/adapter to connect it to your computer. In my case, I have to use DVI to VGA to connect it to my Lenovo port replicator. Regards.

I've been using my dual screen E2414H monitors with Windows 10 for some time now... no issues.
As of Nov. 23rd, this no longer works.  I no longer have dual screen capabilities nor the 1920 resolution.    I'm now forced to use 1 screen with 1280 resolution on the 1920 monitor.  
I have updated every driver available, but there does not appear to be a Windows 10 driver for this monitor. 
That's super frustrating given that the monitors are only 2 years old, and now apparently worthless. 
Is there a workaround? Is there any hope of getting a Windows 10 driver for this monitor?
Thank you -

Hi: The information you received from Nvidia is incorrect. There is indeed an updated chipset driver from Nvidia, which updates the ethernet driver so you can upgrade to W7. W7 is not listed on the drop down menu for the driver download but when you select Vista, it shows the driver is also good for W7. Here it is...32 bit... http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/14874/en-us

Windows 7 image backup will restore to a larger hard disk, just not a smaller one. Making sure that you create the boot disk that
the image program has you create.

I have done it lots of times. When you restore the image to your larger disk, you might have extra space at the end which you will have to extend your C drive size to include that unused space..

I'm thinking of changing to XP so started gathering hardware driver updates.

I've drawn a blank over the monitor - a Taxan Ergovision 755 TCO99 bought in 2000.

I think Taxan must be gone as there's no website. Microsoft's Windows catalog XP hardware list shows no Taxan monitors and google comes up with little more than old reviews.

I don't know if this matters anyway? When I've had to reload Win98 2nd ed, the monitor worked before the Taxan drivers went on, so I assume I wouldn't be left looking at a dead screen under XP?

A:My LCD Monitor..DVI compatible?

The information just isn't there. Either contact them or get the monitor and see for yourself. By the way, you're blowing DVI out of proportion, the picture quality difference, if any, isn't noticable. I use a DVI connection with my LCD TV but only because I sometimes want to watch TV while I kill the combine or vice versa using the Picture In Picture (PIP) function. Otherwise, there's no difference for me between VGA and DVI. I've not heard anything to the contrary of my experiences either.

My Pavilion 22xi Monitor indicates "monitor going to sleep" about 10 minutes. Nothing about "no signal". I have been rebooting and that seems to temporarily fix it until the next time I power up. Today however, it rebooted itself but "went back to sleep at least 3 more times in less than 10 minutes  until I rebooted it manually.
At first I changed settings in Windows 10 but I realized that had nothing to do with my monitor.
I saw other answers on the forum but none referring to my 22xi.

A:Monitor going to sleep after Windows 10 upgrade

Hi there @SEORonW, May the Forums be with you!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.  I understand that your display is going to sleep on you, regularly. I am happy to help with this. Was this happening prior to switching to Windows 10?Have you tried to use a different connection type from your computer?Did you test your display with a different system using the same cable and connection type to see if the same sleep issue occurs?Do you have access to another display to test with your computer using the same connection and cable, and if so does the same sleep issue occur? Also take a look through this: HP and Compaq Flat Panel Monitors - Flat Panel Monitor Displays Message about No Signal, Signal out .... It is not specific to Windows 10, but some could still be relevant.  Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

My fiance has a Dell Dimension 4700 with a 17" FP monitor also from Dell; both are 2.5 years old.
(That's not the problem... or is it? LOL)

Earlier today, when the monitor returned from 'sleep mode', the monitor's on button flickered on and off, resulting in no display whatsoever. Teasing the on/off switch didn't seem to cause the button to remain on or off - it kept cycling between the two power states. Giving it a several hour rest to cool down didn't seem to help, either.

Question (this is for a short-term solution):
Is it okay to hookup an old Gateway CRT monitor to the Dell system without endangering the CPU?

Granted, the monitor is old... but it has worked for 15 years and still seems to have some life in it. My fiance is concerned that there could be issues with proprietary wiring, and with that in mind, obviously doesn't want to fry his CPU.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in this small issue.

A:Would a 15-yr-old monitor be compatible with a 2.5-yr-old Dell?

Have at it! As long as it has a VGA connection you should be all good. At the worst, you won't get an image on the monitor at all.

I've had the pleasure of hauling freakishly heavy, circa 1980's Mitsubishi CRT's out of a place, and they still worked on fairly modern computers. Those *******s.

My grandson who is in the military bought a new 23 inch computer monitor and then was deployed so he gave the monitor to my wife. When I connected it to her computer with WXP, the display was too large for the screen. When on the Internet you cannot see the minimizing icon or the X to close the program. In addition, the fonts were difficult to read and some window frames that contained text were so faint you could not read the text. I believe the new monitor resolution was 1080X1920.
I have bought new larger size computer monitors in the past and had no difficulty. I reduced the recommended resolution which brought the above referenced icons into view but the fonts were still difficult to read.

My question: Is there some way you have to determine if your computer can support a monitor before you make the purchase?

Hi: You can always make the W10 installation DVD (use the media creation tool below), and autorun it from the windows desktop. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Skip the check for updates, and W10 should bypass the hardware checks and install. Then just reinstall the latest driver HP has for your monitor from the support page. That is normally the way to get past any device that is blocking W10 from installing. Can't absolutely guarantee that the hardware will work, but usually it will.

So I've been building my pc (first time) and its be frustrating to say the least.

I've hit another road block here, my video card is DVI-I and my monitor has two connections, VGA and DVI, my Monitor came with a VGA Cable and my Video Card came with two VGA-DVI adapters. So I put the adapter on the video card end and plugged the VGA cable into the VGA slot on the monitor.


So I put the adapter on both ends but the DVI-I adapter wont fit into the DVI slot!

Is there anyway to get around any of this or am I totally screwed?

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and I'm having trouble connecting to 3 via the HP 120 W advanced docking station. I was able to do this in the past without issues when I was running Windows 7. I'm on a ZBook 15 (1st Gen) I know the laptop has 2 display adaptors: NVIDIA Quadro K2100M, and Intel HD Graphics 4600. When connected to the docking station, I usually ran 2 monitors through the NVIDAI via Display Ports, and the 3rd through the Intel adapter via VGA. Now, after upgrading to Win 10. If I boot the laptop in the dock, it says there is an issue with the Intel graphics adapter, so I'm only able to use the NVDIA and therefor only 2 screens. I've tried updating/reinstalling drivers for both adapters but nothing seems to work. Tried versions from NVIDIA, Intel, and from HP Directly. Whats funny is that if I boot up the laptop BEFORE I connect it to the docking station, everything works fine. Once I dock it all three monitors will come up and work just fine. So I do have a workaround, but it is a little inconvenient  Any Ideas what the issue could be, maybe I have something misconfigured in the BIOS? I think I tried changing a few settings related to hybrid displays, but no luck...

Interesting problem here... decided to do my first upgrade to Win 10 on my HTPC, running Win 8.1 (Home x64). During the upgrade process, the computer rebooted, and when it came back my monitor is saying "Not Support".

I'm theorizing that the problem is happening because the monitor is a 4K 30 Hz screen. If it's identifying it as a 4K monitor but kicking it up to 60 Hz, it will fail.

I did create bootable media but Startup Repair doesn't find anything. I also tried using the command prompt to use BCDEdit to set the bootmanager to display the boot menu ("bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes") but I'm guessing that's editing the boot configuration on my bootable USB stick and not the OS drive... either that or it's just not doing anything.

I've tried F8, Shift-F8, F12, and holding down Shift to try and get a boot menu, but I just get the Windows logo, the circle spinning under it for a second, and then I lose it. I suppose it's possible that I'm not far enough into the install process to get a boot menu maybe? I dunno. Can't see. :(

At this point I can wipe it and reinstall 8.1, but I'm wondering if there's any hope of dumbing down the resolution on this thing if even temporarily. Your thoughts?

I am looking at a laptop for a fellow student. He upgraded from 8.1 to 10 shortly after 10 became available. Recently it was running slow and shuts off sometimes. Fan vent was clogged. CPU temp a little too high. First of all there are no drivers for Windows 10 from Toshiba. This laptop is not on their compatibility list.

I was running ccleaner and noticed its taking a long time. I looked at the CPU and Ram usage and CPU is at 7% and RAM at 49%. Then I noticed the speed of the CPU is at 1.2GHz with a Max speed of 2.6GHz. Every now and then it will jump to 2.3GHz for a second or two, then back down to 1.2 or 1.3GHz. Could this have anything to do with the 10 upgrade? Will not having the drivers for 10 create a performance issue? I think the laptop needs to go back to 8.1 but I need input from above my level (very low).

Toshiba Satellite P855-S5102
Intel Core i5-3230M CPU @2.6GHz
4G RAM Single Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)

I want to upgrade my CPU. It is currently an AMD Athlon Neo Processor MV-40. It is only 1.6 Ghz. My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv2 Entertainment PC. My motherboard specs are below.

Model: Flextronics 3055
FSB: AMD Hammer, 200 Mhz

The question I have is: What other CPUs are compatible with my motherboard.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there. Thank you all in advance for any help.

A:Motherboard compatible with CPU. Upgrade.

Faites, welcome to the forums.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there.

Probably because it is an OEM board made by them for that (and maybe more) particular notebook. They wouldn't provide any support for it even if you did find it on their site as that would all fall on the notebook manufacturer.

As far as upgrading the CPU, unless it is supported in the bios the best you can do is the Turion Neo x2 listed here,

AMD Processors for Notebooks: AMD Turion

other than that, nothing. Even if it is supported (and that is entirely up to HP), ther eis the small matter of finding one.

Hi Good day, I bought an HP Notebook 15-ba047cl and I need to upgrade the RAM, but there's a few issues.  So the laptop comes with two slots, one is being used with an 8GB SODIMM. I want to expand the RAM to 16GB and also enable dual-channel mode, but the stick of RAM in my laptop seems to not only be quite rare, but very expensive. The RAM currently installed in my laptop is:  Manufacturer HynixManufacturer Reference HMA81GS6AFR8N-UHCapacity 8GBName PC4-19200Short Form 8GB(1Rx8)Type 260PinConstruction Type SO-DIMMModel SO-DIMMOrganization 1Gx64Description DDR4 2400MHzNumber of Ranks 1Extension unbufferedError Correction non-ECCDRAM Organization 1Gx8Number of DRAM 8Construction Type of DRAM FBGA(78ball)Type Height 31.25mmVoltage 1,2V  I've read HP's documents extensively and they insist I use RAM from the same manufacturer and model number in order to enable dual-channel mode (though I know full well this isn't always needed), but this particlar brand and model is severely problematic to get a hold of. As for my question, I was wondering whether or not I should purchase an entirely new set of 2 8GB sticks, and which ones you would recommend for this laptop, or if there was some way for you guys to assist me in getting just one other stick of RAM from another manufacturer that would work and enable dual-channel mode. I can't seem to find much people, if any at all, mentioning this laptop, and when I try to use the offline hardware scanners an... Read more

Hi ,
I want to upgrade to 8GB RAM (Now I'm using 1 GB RAM)
I want to know if my computer compatible with 8GB or not !
my friend told me that it depends on the processor ... Does it ??

Windows 7 professional
Processor : Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 900 @ 2.20GHz 2.19 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 1.00 GB
System type: 32-bit operating system
I'm sorry if the info is not enough I don't know what is the important info to tell !!

A:Want to upgrade to 8GB RAM is my computer compatible ?

The CPU itself is 64 bit capable,

Intel? Celeron? Processor 900 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

but seeing it is a socket 478 CPU, it all comes down to what the motherboard will support; one bit of info you left out. Also as long as you are running 32 bit Windows anything beyond 3 GB is essentially a waste as 32 bit Windows can only use up to 4 GB, and you will lose some of that due to memory addressing of all devices in and on the motherboard.

Hey guys, this forum was a crucial part in building my rig a year and a half ago, and I'm going to call on this community once again because its almost time to upgrade my system.
I'm looking to upgrade to 4GB RAM, possibly a hard drive, and in the future I'll need a new processor and video card.

RAM: I have 2 1GB modules right now, and I was wondering whether I should buy 2 more 1GB modules, so all 4 slots on my mother board are filled, or whether I should get 2 2GB modules of a "better" RAM,as in better RAM. DDR2 800 is preferable, but I'm not sure if there has been "better" RAM that has come out that my mother board supports

HD: I'm looking to get a 10,000rpm raptor in the near future. Any recommendations on a nice little hard drive that totes the speed for a fair price?

CPU: With DX10 games coming out in the near future, I'm going to be looking at getting a better CPU before I head off to college. I'm currently running my 2.4 dual core cpu, and I know my 775 motherboard can take on a quad core. I know way off in the future I'll need a new motherboard, but before I head off, I want to get the best possible processor my motherboard can handle for a decent price. Any suggestions on a good quad core (can my mobo use extreme quads?)

Video Card: My system so far has been a breeze to use and build, even though its been running vista as its OS. ALL of my problems so far have come from my video card. Several times it ... Read more
