Q: ZR2740w Windows 10 driver

I have got a new Dell desktop with Windows 10 and would like to use my old motitor (HP ZR2740w) with it. But it looks like a Windows 10 driver for this monitor is not vailable on HP site for download. Does anybody know where/when I can obtain it? Or will I be able to obtain it at all?

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.)

Is there a Windows 10 Driver for the HP ZR2740w monitor that will provide a resolution of something more than 1280x720? We are currently using a DVI connection from a docking station to the monitor. Thanks.

A:Windows 10 Driver for HP ZR2740w Monitor

@SpaceCoast Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! The only monitors that need drivers are those that have embedded USB ports, or other such ports that need drivers. I see you're running Win10. Did the PC come preinstalled with Win10? Or, did you upgrade it from a prior OS to Win10?This is important as PC that were updates from prior OSs are often stuch with the generic video drivers that MS provides during the Upgrade, and if that is your situation, it's a video driver problem, not a monitor problem. If you did Upgrade your PC to Win10, please provide the detailed product number so we can check for HP Win10 drivers for it. We can proceed when you provide the answers.

Where can I find the drivers for windows 8.1 for this monitor?Please note that the Win7 x64 drivers are not accepted by Win8.1 x64.Adding it as legacy hardware with the INF provided by the Win7 install program doesn't work either.Please help!

I wanted to reply to a previous question, but the thread was marked read-only, hence I am opening a new topic.On windows 7 x64, I installed SP54516 which upgraded without change to Windows 10 x64. In device manager, it seems the only drivers are "C:\windows\system32\drivers\monitor.sys" (which is Microsoft Windows 10 x64 standard monitor driver and "C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\HP_ZR2740w.icm (which is just a color profile). Just extract the folder "Files" from the patch (with Winzip, winrar of 7z) and point Device Manager to that location when installing/updating the driver.  Driver is version 1.0.0.0 with date 23-Mar-11.  While that is very old, it does not matter since it's just a color profile. Good luck, sorry for those who had trouble.Ewald

Q: zr2740w

I have an HP ZR2740w that is well out of warranty. The display will just randomly turn off. However, the computer still thinks the display is active. I then have to press the power button to remove the display among the active displays (I have a total of three). Sometimes, if you turn it off and back on again, it works right away. Other times you have to wait. Some times, it won't come back on at all.  This same problem happens no matter what input, no matter what computer is used. I have tried with three different computers, on three different operating systems, using both DVI and Displayport. The behavior is exactly the same.  Any suggestions on what I need to do to repair this would be greatly appreciated.

 I purchased an HP ZR2740W new from Microcenter at the end of 2013. Serial number CNT323W15H, I still have the receipt. According to HP's website, the warranty just expired on the 15th. I had an accident last night, and scratched the surface of the display pretty badly. There is white showing through the scratch when black is displayed. I was wondering what my repair / replacement options are through HP support. Thank you.

Hi, I have an issue with the display port of a HP Elitebook G3 with Product ID L3C64AVIt does not recognize in anyway with a HP ZR2740w 27 inch screen. I have upgraded video drivers on laptop. Tried to find drivers for the display for Windows 10 Enterprise ( 64 bit ) with no results.The screen is ok since it works with an old laptop model HP Elitebook Folio 9470m and display port and Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit Note that the screen only has a HDMI connection and display cable.   The only result I was able to get is a quick image of the screen for 2 seconds. When checking screensettings in Windows 10, it does not get recognized at all. Any other solutions to this that can be helpful?

I am experiencing the following issue and hope that someone in the forum as an idea / suggestion. When I have the screen connected via via display port cable with the docking station and I have my laptop docked, I dont get any signal and the screen keeps black. This is independent of the Operating System - I used Windows 7, Windows 8. When my laptop is docked but I attach the display port cable directly to the laptop it works without any problem. I have also realized that with other displays 23'' or 24'' the setup with the docking station works without a problem. So it has to be a cominbination between UltraSlim Docking Station and ZR2740w screen. Any advise what else should be tried?











Solved!

Update:  After calling HP technical support I and being bounced among various clueless offshore tech support reps, I finally landed on the US-based workstation support department.  Justin looked up the problem and identified it as a known issue and is replacing my monitor cable with one that HP says will work.   Also, in the meantime there is a workaround that I had figured out.  If you don't use the displayport port on the ultraslim docking station but pug the cable directly into the computer it works fine.  There is some inconvienence associated with this as you have to plug it in every time you dock and unplug it every time you undock (and of course the cable always falls behind the desk while you are doing this), but it is okay as a solution while I am waiting for the new cable to arrive.  Will update this post after it arrives and report whether it works.

Hi! The Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2017/2:nd edition has an OLED panel option. Lenovo's download page for this model, https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/hk/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... , offers a driver "Intel "OLED Panel Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Type: 20JD, 20JE, 20JF, 20JG)", 1.0.0.5, 2017/10/02, in the Display and Video Graphics section. In Windows, the device appears as "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver" under "System devices" in the Windows Device Manager. Normally I'd think all needed to drive a display is the graphics driver (e.g. "Intel(R) HD Graphics 620" under "Display adapters") and a monitor file for resolution, frequency and color calibration ("OLED Display 2560x1440" under "Monitors"). So, why do we need an "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver", and what does this device actually do?

My Windows 7 64 bit desktop is several years old. The other day, without warning, both my CD drives stopped working. I discovered the error above (in title). First, I simply attempted to have Windows update the drivers (both from the PC and from the Web).
The response I received was that the drivers were up to date. Next, I did a system restore to a point when I knew the CD drives were working - no help. I next attempted to repair Windows from the install CD using a portable CD drive. When I plugged it into
the USB port(s) I got the same error message. I also did an uninstall and let the system search and reinstall - no help. I've been searching for the correct drivers but, so far have been unsuccessful. The drive description is "Optiarc DVD RW AD-7280S
ATA Device". Type = DVD/CD-ROM drives; Manufacturer = Standard CD-ROM drives; Location 1 (Channel 1, Target 1, Lun0). Driver provider - Microsoft; Driver Date - 6/21/2006; Driver version - 6.1.7601.17514; Digital Signer - Microsoft Windows. File version
- 6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255) The driver location is (of course) C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\cdrom.sys

Hi,

All of a sudden the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service is set to Manual in Services.

I clean installed Windows 7 a few weeks ago and my system is clean (as far as clean goes) as in only 15 programs installed (of which 5 x NVIDIA). I use this computer for work and I don't want anything else.

I checked that service and a few weeks ago it was set to Automatic.

My questions are:

1. Any idea what may have caused this value to change? I'm pretty sure this is related to a USB drive.

2. Could it be the case if you install an old USB drive it somehow messes up the value?

3. What does this do anyway? I read on Black Viper it manages user-mode driver host processes:

User-mode driver framework is a method of having drivers ran in ?user space? instead of ?kernel space.? This provides better system stability due to a situation of a driver crashing, it only brings down the driver and not the system. Such possible devices include cameras, media players, PDA?s and other USB connected devices.

4. Should I set it back to Automatic or leave it as is?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, and thanks in advance...

Much of this is a repeat to other threads, until the graphic driver problem at the end...

(I also have an Ubuntu partition.)

I'd left my mp3 player plugged in overnight + an Asus Xonar DAC in a usb hub, when Windows wanted to do an update and conflict over drivers ensued. Strange, because I've selected for notification before updating. Also, have not been successful installing any new updates since the end of May. Was seemingly a common problem, I checked into it, too busy/lazy to pursue and succeed. This part is confusing...?

Woke up to blasting fans and unplugged everything peripheral. First, tried setting back to restore points prior to that night - twice. Could restart in Safe Mode and with networking. Then, could restart normally - but, shutdowns after 20 minutes or so.

Got crash logs, saw driver conflicts (not found) - saved.

Came here, read threads, did restart at Last Known Good Configuration. Restart - Nvidia Geforce driver not found. Went to Asus site, downloaded and installed driver (not lastest version, but last approved version and not much later than one that was installed).

It then went into a system cycled start/restart/etc. attempting to find driver, fix itself - forced to do shutdown to stop it.

Restarted this morning in Safe Mode, followed your instructions for posting. It's been running in safe mode for about 20 minutes now.

I am not sure if this is where it belongs, or if it is a Graphics Card issue. I have an Acer Aspire 7741z-4433 with an Intel(R) Pentium(R) p6200 (2.13 GHz, 3MB 1.3 cache). This only happens to me while I am playing The Sims 3. I have the game set on the lowest quality settings, even though my laptop "claims" to be HD LED, etc. This issue still happens. As you may know I cannot replace the graphics card as it is apart of the motherboard, and to buy a new motherboard with a better graphics card would cost more than a new computer. I have been the my manufacture's website and tried installing an update of the graphics card, and that didn't do the trick either. I am at my wits end, and I just want to play the game without it shutting down and freezing my computer. The reason I know the error is because I do Alt + Tab to get back to the desktop. The way it acts up while I am in game is the screen blacks out but I can still see the software's mouse, and then it blinks a couple times and then freezes completely, causing me to do a hard shut down. What can I do to resolve this issue?

You will not get win 10 video or chipset drivers for the old laptop since they don't exist, so you have to make do with lower resolutions on the new monitor. Touch will not work on the old laptop. Time to upgrade to a new computer!

Hello,
We have a barcode label printer device which when connected through USB on a Windows 7 machine automatically loads a windows approved driver from the driver store. This driver does not work as expected, so we are planning to use another custom driver provided
by the vendor, which we will be deploying it through SCCM. However, there may be cases where users will have inserted the printer before these custom drivers are in place which would cause these default generic drivers to load.
So our aim is to,
1. Remove this auto loaded default driver from the system if present
2. also, if possible, to remove it from the Windows driver store itself.
3. We do not want to change the Windows Default plug and play driver loading behaviour which would affect other USB devices.
Is there a command line to do this?
Thanks in advance.

This is my first thread and I'm hoping someone can help me sort out my laptop and improve the speed. It's slowed down quite a lot and is getting worse. After doing performance tests etc etc it's come up with the message below. Thank you.

Apologies but this is the best I can do with the notification ... copying and pasting!!!! Please enlarge.

A:SiS VGA Kernal Mode Vista Driver and Windows Driver Foundation

I think that it may not have a lot to do with those drivers. As even the report says that they slow down the resume from sleep or whatever by 5 seconds combined, not that they slow down the machine's own operation.

Your kind of issues are generally because there are programs running in the background and (useless) installed utilities that are eating resources for nothing.
Try following this tutorial, then report back.

Also, posting your full specs would be helpful, This tutorial contains a simple tool that scans and uploads the data into your profile here at Sevenforums, so we know what we are working on.

was having issues with the sound drivers on my P.C.. I use a dual boot Windows 98 SE (C:\ drive)/ XP Pro (D:\drive) ,system.
Have had loads of virus issues poping up every now and then ,though have several softwares installed for A.V,Anti-Spyware ,host guards ,active monitors ,anti key loggers ,key stroke scramblers, etc... on my system,and the resident as well as online scanners give me a clean chit ,however do have viruses /keyloggers activity poping up every now and then,and a bunch of registry errors ,every time i reboot.
Some i have a feeling it is a infected driver behind all this. In 98SE(C:) ,my network adapters don't work (so cannot update my software/A.V. programs) other then that alls well.However in Windows XP my sound doesn't work ,had got an blue screen (system crashed thereafter ) :

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) <-- This god for shaken message is stopping me from enjoying my computer.

The driver is MAT****A DVD-RAM UJ-861H ATA Device

And that up there is the error message, i havnt downloaded anything i just pressed the button on the cd/dvd drive and my computer shut down and when i turned it back on nothing it it worked.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Im practilly computer illiterate so please be easy on the big words and stuff =]

A:Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted

Please try the steps below:

1. Uninstall all third-party burning software, such as Nero and Roxio.

2. Perform a Clean Boot to test the result.

Clean Boot

========
a. Click Start, type "MSCONFIG" (without the quotations) in the Search Bar and Press "Enter" to start the System Configuration Utility.


Note: Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.


b. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
c. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".
d. Restart the computer and test the issue.


Note: Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If you see the System Configuration Utility, check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click "OK".

Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment. If the issue disappears, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

If the issue persists, please contact your computer manufacturer to check if the DVD drive is damaged.

If not, you may need to restore the system to its factory settings.

Hope it helps.

Hi,
I'm a little confused by one of my update options. I was under the impression that windows 7 was using wddm 1.1, and that the wddm 1.0 drivers have been available for quite some time. I checked and the driver I have is wddm 1.0, released 10/28/2008, version number 8.15.10.1590. So why am I being given the option to update to 'pre-release wddm 1.0'? I tried to get more information to check the version number, but I am just redirected to Winqual Help , which doesn't help me any.

I'd like to test out the wddm 1.1 drivers, and I've read that they're available for 7, but I don't think that these are those drivers, unless there is a typo in the driver title.

yes thats right....

wddm is just a driver model...
its up to the manufacture (here intel) to release wddm 1.1 driver
so until then (most likely they wont) they have to release a wddm 1.1

Windows Display Driver Model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
that should be a good read....

what they mean pre-release means that these drivers are beta drivers (there is a difference between pre-release drivers and pre-release wddm 1.1 drivers)

Hello,

I have a Sony Vaio that just recently started freezing after startup for no apparent reason.

I initially thought the freeze maybe caused by the HDD so I purchased and installed a SSD (the computer needed updating anyway.)

Along with the SSD, I put a fresh install of Windows 7 on the machine. The computer still froze randomly.

Next, I switched out one stick of ram at a time to see if either (the computer has two sticks) maybe causing the fault. Nothing...same random freezing.

Then, I noticed that if I move the computer, that's when everything freezes...cursor and all. I thought, "loose connection somewhere."

Lastly, I notices that when I start in safe mode w/networking, the computer DOESN'T freeze! Moving the machine around or not.

This has led me to believe the freeze is being caused by a driver of some sort... but,

How do i determine WHICH driver is causing this? (i also have set the bios back to default..no fix)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks...

Warning: This is gonna be messy.

Okay... So I have a HP dv6000 with Windows Vista Home Premium. Over the past six months it has been suffering from hard drive issues, resulting in crashes. The remedy to fix the crashed hard drive has been to do a complete system restore by booting the computer, hitting F11, and doing a COMPLETE SYSTEM RECOVERY to factory settings.

However, this last time I went to recover to factory settings I got a message saying Error: 10002 - Contact HP if this persists.

Long story short, I have now warranty, and do not want to get the hardware fixed nor the software looked at. I am happy with a barely functioning computer as I have a desktop I primarily use.

I am also a student in the School of Business at a state university, and we have a partnership with Microsoft for free product downloads. With that said, I have had the pleasure of using Windows 7 Professional for quiet some time on my desktop. Now, I want to just reinstall Windows on my laptop - whether its vista, xp, or 7.

That said, I have all three ISO's burned to a CD and LEGAL CD KEYS to use with them.

XP had a partition issue that I haven't spent much time with, and windows vista wont recognize my cd key that came with the laptop (THIS IS THE ONLY CD KEY I DID NOT GET ONLINE FOR I HAVE ONE LEGALLY VIA MY COMPUTER PURCHASE).

For that reason, I moved on to Windows 7. I go to install it, and the first thing that comes up in that windows 7 needs to install a cd/dvd driver dev... Read more

So I have recently had an issue with the y560 ideapad laptop (I know WAY past use of life but it's still plodding along just fine).  The display driver I think is crashing after the windows load screen on boot.  Make a long story short, through my diagnosis of the laptop I thought it may be the thermals from the video card and CPU.  Ergo, I pulled the thing apart replaced the thermal compound and was still running into the same issue of the laptop not making to the login section on boot and occasionally throwing a black screen up in safe mode. Went in via safe mode (very odd by the way to get there on Windows 10) and nuked the drivers for the old 5000 series mobility AMD card.  I was still experiencing the same issues after a fresh driver reinstall so I just resigned myself to using the laptop with the built in graphics on the MOBO instead of the video card. Well after about an hour of putzing around feeling sorry for myself, Windows blanks the screen out and pops up with the drivers re-installed and the screen looking like normal.  So my question is two fold: Anyone have a solution for the blank screen after the windows boot screen (all research points back to this being a problem years ago but driver updates seem to have solved the issue). Is Windows 10 doing funny things with my drivers in the background unbegonist to me?  (While I have little doubt Windows IS doing things, I'm looking for a way to turn it off seeing as how...

Hello,

I initially thought the freeze maybe caused by a failing HDD so I purchased and installed a SSD (the computer needed updating anyway.)

Along with the SSD, I put a fresh install of Windows 7 on the machine. The computer still froze randomly.

Next, I switched out one stick of ram at a time to see if either (the computer has two sticks) maybe causing the fault/freeze. Nothing...same random freezing.

Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hello

I recently did a clean install of Windows 10 'home' (64bit) on my machine.

1. Since this update, my PCI USB card no longer works.
In the Device Manager, I see "via rev 5 or later usb" with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark. When I try to update the driver I am told its is the latest.

How do I solve this - anyone else experienced similar and know where I can get the latest driver?
(I have tried the obvious things like uninstalling the hardware, unplugging the PC for 1 minute but nothing helps)

2. How do I manually override the Windows driver - for example, Windows seems to have issues with the USB speakers on the generic driver. When I try to update to a later Realtek driver, I point to this and get a message saying my driver is the latest.
I want the manufacture specific driver for some things and this may also help with my issue above if its caused by a redundant driver.

Hello,

I went into my device manager to see which devices need to be updated. I then went and clicked update "Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter" - then as seen in the below photograph, a Windows error popped up and said "Windows can't verify this driver software". Can anyone tell me what is going on here? Could this be a zombie driver or is it safe to continue the update? Thanks.

A:Updating Driver: Windows cannot verify driver

Hi,

Are you running any Virtualization software (Virtuabox, XP Mode)?

If so then that would explain the Virtual WIFI Adapter. Also, as you're running X64 then some drivers will produce this message as it's part of the X64 system to alert of any X86 drivers that may be installed.
