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: 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.

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

Question: How can I reactivate my monitor without reformatting the hard drive?
This is what happened:
Two monitors were hooked to my computer, (Dell Inspiration), and I had to reduce it into one monitor.

I opened: screen resolution
Clicked on: Advanced settings
Clicked on: Monitor
Clicked on: Driver
Clicked on: Disable

After I did that, one monitor became completely dark, and the second monitor display was if it would run in safe mode, (graphic quality was so bad, it hurt to my eyes to watch it). I checked the device list and both monitor was removed from the list, there were no monitor listed anymore (before they were there).
I tried the system restore, but after the system restore finished, there were no more connection with the monitor.
When I start the computer, the monitor works for few seconds, shows the start up process, and right after the windows logo displayed, it shuts off. I tried to reboot in "safe mode", and it starts up as usual, (the monitor works), but before it reaches the desktop screen, it shuts off.
Windows version is: Windows 7
Computer: DELL Inspiration 546s
Operating System: 64-bit
Processor: AMD

Thank you in advance for your help

A:[SOLVED] windows 7 - monitor driver disabled - monitor does not work

Boot into Safe Mode with Networking, go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, Right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, are there any devices with a Red or Yellow flags next to them? If It is Red (Disabled) then right click it and Enable it.
If it is a Yellow Exclamation mark, then you need to download the video driver for your model. First try Right clicking the yellow mark and then Uninstall. Then Right click any device and choose Scan For Hardware Changes, this should reinstall the previous Video Driver, then restart the computer in normal mode.
If that doesn't work, Go to the Dell Support/Download drivers site Product Support | Dell US type in your service tag # or make and model# and download the Video driver for your model.

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 have HP Desktop Tower Pavilion with windows 10, I had two HP S2031 monitors in dual mode, worked fine. One of them died, I got a good deal on a larger HP 27er monitor.  I hooked it up, they were both working fine ... it was using a default monitor
setting ... and then yesterday the computer downloaded some updates, and in doing so, it downloaded the driver for the HP 27er and installed.  The next thing that happens is the older HP S2031 starts to go dark ... like it is going into sleep mode, and
then it is totally black.  On reboot, it starts up with both monitors working, but within seconds of reboot the HP S2031 goes black again. The HP S2031's buttons do nothing, other than the power button, which turns it off and on, but that is it.  
I have done all troubleshooting, I did not even have them set up to sleep, all settings are at NEVER.  In coming here, I have done all the fixes I can find for similar  that are posted for similar issues, the Windows Key + W... nothing. 
The create new power plan ... nothing.  the device manger>display adapters>disable then enable ... nothing.  and lastly Start>Control Panel>System>Device Manager>display adapter>driver tap>update ... still nothing.  HOW
DO I GET THE HP S2031 MONITOR TO NOT BE IN SLEEP AND HAVE BLACK SCREEN.  I can not figure this out and am not finding any fix.

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.

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?

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.

How can I reverse what I've done and fix this?

A:Disabling windows default P n P monitor driver.

How could you install Windows then? The graphical part of the Windows install is done using the VGA driver.

You could try installing the correct Benq drivers or the "other" default driver before VGA drivers and telling it to use these for your monitor. Then install VGA and reboot.

I would guess the issue is the suckiness of the monitors and not Windows..

Dear friend,

I am having some problems getting the correct driver for my LG Flatron W2243S monitor. I keep getting the windows php default monitor driver 6.1.7600.16385 (C\windows\system32\drivers\monitor.sys) instead of the correct LG driver 1.1.0.0 (somewhere in my programme files). I know this to be the correct driver as I have it running for another monitor on the same PCIe card.

Basically my set-up is one PCIe ATI Radeon HD3850 two montors: LG Flatron W2243S (wrong resolution) and W1942T (correct resolution). I also run a PCI ATI HD4500 with a HPw1907 monitor with no problems.
OS: Windows 7 *32MB. Quad Core Q8200 with 4GB RAM. Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L motherboard.

Thank you for any help?

Like I say, I think that I just need to get the correct driver for this screen and disable the Win7 default.

Kind regards

Check windows update for a new display driver. ' After this message there is only 1 monitor shown in the windows display settings.   I then updated the Nvidia display driver using device manager and rebooted, but this problem still remains.  I've tried changing the BIOS to use only the dedicated Nvidia GPU, but this doesn't work either.  I tried installing Nvidia drivers for this card from their website, but the install crashes my computer to a black screen and forced me to do a hard reset into safe mode so I could re-install the Lenovo driver package.   What do I need to do to get my external VGA monitor working in Windows 10?

Hi, I just purchased a new monitor and attempted to install. My Windows ME recognized the new hardware and installed it. After that was complete, the system went on to intall the drivers...this is where the problem is. No matter how I attempt to install-manually, automaticallly, with the CD driver disc or with the automatic plug and play, the system completely freezes at the same point of "windows will now install drivers" and stops responding. I reboot, try again, and same thing. Is this monitor (which is supposed to be ""PC" compatible-no mention of any operating systems it doesnt work with) not compatible with Windows ME? Before I load ths back up into the box and return it, i want to make sure there isn't something else I can do. Thanks.
 

A:Computer freeze when trying to install monitor driver in Windows ME

Well... this stuff happens... Nowadays windows 95,98,ME are NOT the best options. They are not fully compattible with any of the new hardware manufactured between 2000 and today. I recommand windows 2000,XP or 2003. These OS's are based on NT technology, and are much more stable viewed from every perspective. You may need to download some appropriate drivers from the internet if windows doesn't configure your monitor correctly... If this fails too, you may try to install manually some drivers from the "Standard monitor" section.

So, in desperation, I downloaded driver from Acer written for Vista.

I can now go upto 1366 X 768 pixels resolution.

Now every time I get Windows Update, it tries to install the unwanted
built in driver. I right clicked it and selected "hide update" option. From
now on, Windows Update should not be nagging me about the Monitor Driver.

A:Monitor Driver

There is usually no need to ever install a monitor driver.

All a driver ever does is restrict the "visible" settings of a video card to those supported by the monitor, but setting the refresh rate and resolution to the native monitor settings will accomplish that much easier.

Do you have any special need to install the driver?

I have a dimension 2400 and I recently reinstalled Windows XP. My monitor is on a default setting, 640x480 pixels.

I have a dell e773c monitor and I went to support.dell.com for the driver but it doesn't install anything after downloading. ?

I also tried to manually find the driver right clicked > display properties > settings > advanced > monitor but it won't let me click anything. It is just set to defualt.

I read that it might be possible to delete the default monitor driver and windows will recognize the correct driver?

Any suggestions? What do I do?

Hi: I've been having an ongoing problem with either the monitor or the software.. but I can't tell which it is or what to do about it.

The contrast is all the way up, and the brightness is all the way down, but the images on the screen (especially on the web where it's most noticeable) don't look right at all, too bright, and details that shouldn't be showing up (like edges of black images on black backgrounds) show.

This is very annoying since I do a lot of web and graphics stuff. I've set Adobe gamma loader, but it didn't correct the problem either. I've reinstalled the drivers, but that hasn't worked either.

I have a Dell monitor. Drivers etc... Nvidia.

Any advice would be fantastic because this problem makes it nearly impossible to create graphics and be able to see and know what the true brightness, contrast, or even color is.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Monitor or driver?

If your monitor is an the old side it could be the monitor itself. There are also settings for your video adapter that adjust contrast and brightness, accessed through desktop right click/properties/settings/advanced. Not sure if this will do more than the Adobe.

I recently had to re-install Windows XP and now my monitor is stuck in 640x480. I have tried to install the driver disc, but I have to change the boot sequence. I have done that, but it never takes hold. I've tried to install, but all I get is basically an owners manual.

Can't really get my head around this problem.

Any help will be highly appreciated.
