Q: It's 2010 and I still can't just plug in a monitor and have it work

Seriously I might expect this with Windows 98 but 12 years later and I still can't plug in a new Samsung SyncMaster 226BW and have Windows set the correct resolution. The correct resolution isn't even available to set manually!

Drivers from the Samsung website are no help. Graphics card is completely up to date.

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.)

A: It's 2010 and I still can't just plug in a monitor and have it work

I cannot help but think this is a Samsung driver issue. I have a dual LG display but had to install the driver for each for Windows to permit their respective resolutions. Another, less likely source could be ATi's CCC if you are running same.

Hi,
I have small Medion laptop computer with LG LCD monitor.

It all worked fine for two weeks but now when I start my PC monitror does not respond. It stays in stand-by mode. If I unplug the monitor it says "Check you input cable" so I guess monitor knows it is connected to a PC but PC won't run it.

What could be the problem?

Thanks

Hi.... You guys helped me so much with another problem, (birthday present for son)...hoping you can help again. Temporarily, my mom has hooked up her computer in our house, but didn't have a monitor, so used our flat panel from our Dimension 2400. We ended up using HERS (not a flat panel, but a newer dell) and tonight I switched them back. Now our my son's Dell flat panel, which is supposed to be a plug and play PLANAR, will not register. The system is using the default VGA and all the text is too big, doesn't give any other display options but 16 bit. I tried turning the computer off for about a half hour and restarting, then unplugging the monitor, turning the pc on, and plugging the monitor in after the pc was started, hoping to see the "new hardware found" msg, but nothing. Why won't it detect the right settings automatically? (I recently also reloaded the entire system from the original boot cd again, since it was really congested). Help anyone?
 

A:Help... Monitor switch, now Plug & Play won't work?

Make sure you have the correct drivers, or plug it into the other vga adapter.

Monitor Buying Guide Dec. 2010 - Monitor Technology





Quote:
Panel technology
CRTs have effectively been replaced by their thinner and brighter sister, the LCD. Under the umbrella of LCD technology, there are a few choices to consider before buying a monitor. First, you'll have to decide which panel technology is right for you.

The three main panel technologies currently used in LCDs are: twisted nematic (TN), vertical alignment (VA), and in-plane switching (IPS). Manufacturers make the vast majority of consumer monitors using TN panels.

Not surprising, TN panels are the cheapest of the three technologies to make. With a few exceptions, monitors that cost $300 or less will likely have TN panels. The main advantages of TN panels are their fast--usually 2ms--response time and, of course, low price. Their major disadvantages are narrow viewing angles, relatively low brightness, and inaccurate color reproduction.

Next up are VA (mostly seen as S-PVA) panels. VAs have improved viewing angles compared with TNs, better color reproduction, and they typically have a much higher maximum brightness. Also, they tend to have the lowest black levels of all three panel technologies. Unfortunately, a VA panel's response time and input lag are not quite as fast as a TN panel, and they can cost anywhere from $400 to $800, and sometimes more depending on the panel's size. Also, you can expect a VA-based monitor's profile to be wider than a TN's.

Hi, I recent came across another monitor, and I'm trying to use it as a dual display monitor (the kind where you can drag things across both monitors, etc). My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce GT 240 and it has a VGA port and DVI port. I bought a DVI to AGP plug (DVI male, AGP female) since the other monitor has a AGP male plug. However, when I plug it in it isn't detected, nor is it detected when I plug it into the motherboard AGP port. Both monitors work when I use them with the AGP port on my graphics card. Also, in device manager, if they are both plugged in, they both show up.

Any suggestions?
 

A:Extra Monitor not being detected, may have something to do with AGP/DVI plug

I think you mean D-Sub, not AGP. AGP is a type of graphics card slot on the motherboard. On the chance that the adapter is bad, try another brand. They are relatively inexpensive.

I have a PIII 700 motherboard with an on-board SIS 630 graphics card.

I updated the drivers for the graphics card recently, and it works just fine, with one exception - when the computer boots up, it doesn not load the driver for the plug and play monitor!

If I check the display properties (via Control Panel), it seems that the monitor cannot be recognised, and consequently the power scheme settings for the monitor do not work and have to be reset.

If I run the 'Add new hardware' applet, it finds the 'Plug and Play Monitor' immediately, and the system returns to normal!

I have been to the monitor manufacturer site (Logix) and can't find any specific drivers for the monitor. That doesn't seem to be the issue. I assume that it's probably tied up with the order in which things are being loaded, but I can't work out how to alter this?

Hi Guys

this problem, which is actually a three part problem, has been bothering me for quite some time and I haven't been able to google myself to the solution. So now i am reaching out to you geniouses to, hopefully, help me find a solution.

Here goes ,ahem, I am running Vista Home Basic on my laptop.
For some reason Plug and Play on the computer does not work and never has :(. It is possible to run USB-devices on my computer if i manually find the drivers every time, but I do not always have internet access or time to look for the drivers. So it has really become a problem for me. Someone said to me that if i just get SP1 for vista, this should fix the problem.
But then realized that Windows Automatic Update was enabled on my computer and thought that SP1, must already be on my computer. Or No?
The third part of the question is; due to the fact that i could not find anything indicating wether i had SP1 installed or not - how do i check this?

My main focus and the real problem is getting these simple USB sticks to work without windows having to search for the driver, which it never finds.
We are talking things like usb-mouses, printers, storages. Basic stuff like that.

Any help would be much apreciated

A:[SOLVED] My plug and play does not work :(

to check if you have vista sp1 check out the screenshot.



or go start > right click on computer and click on properties


As to it not recognizing ur usb devices , maybe their not generic and not popular thus needing a third party driver.

A:sli video, two 7800gtx's 4 places to plug monitor

since nobody else has answered this, I will chime in here...

With standard single video cards with dual monitor capabilty, it never mattered which output connector you used (the vid card would sense which one was plugged in)... I can only assume that it wouldn't matter in your case either. In SLI mode, the 2 cards function as 1 single card.

I can almost assure you that if it did not state in your video card or motherboard manual which connector to plug the monitor into, then it doesn't matter. when you plug it into any "socket" it will be recognized and configured from there. In any case it won't do any harm to plug it into a different output

I have a Viewsonic Optiquest Q7b-3 monitor. For the longest time, it was working just fine on me... until just the other day. Now, whenever I plug it in, it won't turn on. If I hook up the monitor to a PC or a Laptop, the little light under the power button will flash about three times, stop, and nothing will show up on the monitor.

About half a year ago, it did something similar to this, but I was able to fix it by replacing a domed capacitor. It worked perfectly... Up until now, of course. I opened up the monitor, and after looking at all the capacitors, none of them seem bad or even domed this time.

Here's the thing though; while I have it opened up and it's plugged into the wall, I can hear a faint buzzing noise. The faint noise sounds sorta like "Wee-ooh wee-ooh wee-ooh wee-ooh", and will continue until I unplug it.

Anyone have any idea's? It is now trashcan-filler, or do you think it is still repairable?

Hello all,

I have been having a problem with my monitor setup for ages and am now at the end of my tether...so need some help!

I have a Digimate L-1931W monitor, in plain speak, a 19" Widescreen TFT LCD monitor. The screen had been flickering (losing channels) for a while and I have diagnosed the cable as being the culpret (A VGA D-Sub, 15 pin cable). Change the cable you say...which I have done 3 times. Herein lays the problem.

This is where I show my staggering ignorance. The original cable seems to allow my windows XP machine to locate and install an appropriate driver for the monitor, and my Nvidia adapter has the monitor listed as a "M19W". Using any other VGA cable means that the monitor is listed as a "CRT" monitor in my nvidia control panel, and is impossible to change. Being CRT, it gives me no option to have the relevant widescreen resolution (in this case 1440 x 900), and also annoyingly flickers on and off as if it has a CRT gun! (when changing resolution).

Does anybody have any idea why changing a VGA cable would disable the plug and play driver installation from my monitor? Many thanks for any help.

The colors on the monitor are way off, even after trying to adjust them using the controls on the monitor itself. There's nothing wrong with the monitor; I got it from my uncle and colors showed up beautifully when he had it on his computer.

I thought downloading the monitor's driver might solve the problem, but every time I try to install it, I get a screen that says something along the lines of it won't install because the computer is using the generic Plug and Play driver instead. How can I get it to recognize the monitor's actual driver instead of the Plug and Play? And more importantly, if I am able to get the official driver to work, will the colors show up more accurately, or would I just be wasting my time?
