No monitor branch in device manager

Q: No monitor branch in device manager

First thing, I know next to nothing about computers.
We have a problem with our monitor switching off after start-up. The only way we can turn on the computer is by disabling the video card (Radeon x1300 pro).

Last thing that we did before the computer stopped working was to load suggested Windows Updates.
"Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - August 2009 (KB890830)
Update for Windows Mail Junk E-mail Filter [August 2009] (KB905866)
Security Update for Windows Vista (KB973540)
Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB972691)
Security Update for Windows Vista (KB973507, KB971657, KB971557, KB956744)"

We have tried updating the Radeon Video card which is now updated.
We tried re-installing the Viewsonic monitor wizard cd and it said that we had to manually install a component (display optimization files)for Vista but then it wouldn't complete the installation. The viewsonic file in program files is there but empty.

Now I've found that the Monitor device in Device Manager is gone so I can't try to enable or change anything to do with monitors.
Help!!

Preferred Solution: No monitor branch in device manager

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No monitor branch in device manager

I have no access to another monitor to see if the problem is with the monitor itself.

Just wondering if I should spend the $200 on a new monitor or getting the computer fixed by tech guys?

A:No USBIO-Controlled Devices branch in device manager

Remove the USB hardware. Restart the computer, plug the USB device back in. You will get the new hardware found wizard and it will ask for the CD to install the driver.

Ok here it goes....

I was playing Bioshock and my computer froze. I got some crazy pink screen and then nothing so I had to do a hard restart. (SUCKED)

So, I turned it back on and noticed my Monitor Drivers were deleted? (ViewSonic 21" VX2025wm) I then of coarse reinstalled and everything seemed to be working nicely.

I started playing Call of Duty 4 and I could see some glitching so I stopped playing and started up my Nvidia System Monitor so I could watch the temp of the Video Card (8800GTXOC BFG). Noticed the temp rise to about 81 degrees C which is normal for the card and it crashed again. So now I'm convinced its the video card. Went to Nvidia Website and DL the newest drivers for the card v180.52. Of coarse I had to reinstall the Monitor drivers as well.

So all that done. I started playing one more time to see the results (Stupid I know) and the same thing happened but this time the Monitor and Sound Card Drivers were deleted. (Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2). So I tried installing the sound card but I get this message (The File 'catc32k.sys' on Creative installer CD-ROM is needed) So I put the disk in and try to reinstall it but nothing. I even tried to manually remove and start over but still nothing.

Now when I try to install my monitor I can't because the disk does not work and I have to manually install it. But I have to click the plug and play monitor option in the Monitor Selection but it is not there. I have unplugged the monitor an... Read more

I inadvertently deleted reference to the monitor from the Device Manager (Windows XP Professional). Now the computer boots, but the screen goes blank when the XP logon screen is due to appear. I tried to use Safe Mode, but after selecting it the screen goes blank again. I also tried disconnecting the monitor, booting, reconnecting and booting, without success. I also tried changing CMOS configuration from Onboard VGA, to AGP card, then installing a AGP video card, but after booting the screen still goes blank.

I've been having problems with my display (separate thread "monitor twitching...") I thought it might be my monitor. I tried updating drivers, which didn't help but actually made it worse. In searching for options I came across "roll back drivers" which I did and the display was better, without so many blacked out words for a while.

I think that the drivers automatically updated again... whatever happened the problem was worse again so I thought maybe if I uninstalled and reinstalled the monitor it might help.

It unistalled, but it didn't reinstall correctly. It's running, but it shows up as "Generic PnP Monitor" in Device Manager.

How can I fix this? I have a Gateway FHX2300 Monitor. (It's still shifting and blacking out words, worse than ever.)

In Control Panel go to Display. On the last Tab, Settings, go to Advanced, then you will see a tab called Monitor. Click on Properties, then Driver and you will be able to view and change drivers there.

(Yes, I know you can get there from System, but for someone who's never been there, this sometimes makes more sense.)

I just purchased a custom built system for my son. I bought the monitor separately. It?s an Asus ROG PG348Q. All drivers are up to date.

In Device Manager, under audio it shows the monitor correctly (built-in speakers I guess) but under monitor it shows Generic PnP.

I tried to Update Driver and it ?searched? the internet only to state that the generic Microsoft driver was the best one. I?m wondering if the monitor is performing below it?s potential by not running with its vendor-specific driver.

It seems to perform great as is. Just wondering why it?s not recognized for video as it is for audio.

Thanks for reading/commenting.

Hey everyone,

I recently did a clean install of Windows XP on a relatively old PC. It was working fine for a week, but suddenly a few days ago I was not able to start up normally (the beginning couple startup screens had odd stippling and the text were offset slightly-kind of hard to explain exactly what it looked like). When it got to the Windows loading screen, it would hiccup for a second, a fan in my case (the video card fan I think) would rev up, and then the screen would go black, at which point the message INPUT SIGNAL OUT OF RANGE would show up and I would be forced to restart.

I can start the computer fine in safemode, though I cannot change any monitor settings (can't change resolution) and when I go to settings -> advanced -> monitor the "properties" option there is grayed out and it says Default Monitor and for the refresh rate I can only choose Use hardware default setting.

I then checked the device manager only to find that there was no monitor tab there. I sense for whatever reason that it's just not detecting my monitor, and that's what is causing the problem. I've installed the latest video drivers as well as motherboard drivers (I believe).

My motherboard is a GA-965-DS3 rev. 1.0
My graphics card is an MSI GeForce 8800 GTS 512mb
My monitor is a Hanns-G HW191D

Any help will be very much appreciated! Using only safemode is a pain.

Hi,

I have just found a double entry for the Intel(R) 82852/82855 GM/GME graphics controller and the Plug & Play monitor in Device Manager on my Windows XP SP3 machine.

I suspect that there should only be one entry and the other thing is that the computer is very slow - checking the resources tab on the graphics driver shows both entries are using different memory resources. One entry has a full record of memory resources, IRQ, I/O range listed. The other entry has two memory resources only listed.

The question is: is it safe for me to remove one of these entries, however, since they are different can I delete both and have windows redetect and install one correct entry?

I'm assuming Windows will detect this adapter - how do I know it will as opposed to having to install it myself?

Surely the Plug and play monitor is a duplicate entry? This is a laptop and there is so second monitor in use.

Many thanks for any help

Hey everyone-

I'm doing some spring cleaning of sorts on my laptop, updating drivers, etc... I'm using a Dell Latitude D610 with XP SP2.

When I'm at work I use a docking station connected to a Dell Flat Panel monitor (model 1707FPt) and I wanted to install the driver files for it. So before that I checked the device manager to see if it was already in there and what I see are four identical entries all labeled "Default Monitor".

From what I can tell they're all identical - double-clicking any give me the following info:
General:
- Device Type: Monitors
- Manufacturer: (Standard monitor types)
- Location: on ATI MOBILITY RADEON X300

Driver:
- Driver Provider: Microsoft
- Driver Date: 6/6/2001
- Driver Version: 5.1.2001.0
- Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Publisher

I'm guessing I've provided excess information for a likely simply question: can I remove 3 of these entries without any issues and, if so, does it matter which 3?

The only monitors I use are the actual laptop screen and this Dell Flat Panel at work. Suggestions are much appreciated!

Two of my USB external Hard drives, a Fantom 600 GB and a Western Digital My Book 500GB cannot be seen in My Computer. I can see them in Device Manager and that says that they are working properly and the drivers are up to Date. In Disk Manager the 2 external drives had a black bar unlike the other drives which had blue bars. The 2 external disks had a number assigned to them but no letter.

I have tried diskpart in the command prompt, was able to assign a letter, then had to format the drives and they did show up in My computer as valid empty external hard drives with the correct amount of space on them. But when I tried to recover the backed up data for one of the disks (less than a third of the capacity of either drive) they went back to not being recognized by My Computer ans in disk manager had a black line with no letter again.

I just went through that process again, got both drives back and tried to recover the backed up files to my Fantom drive and lost the Fantom drive once again.

A:External drives show in Device Manager & Disk Manager but not Computer

Hi Dick1030,

Welcome to Seven Forums.


Please do as follows:

1. It is unusual for the System Reserved Partition to have a drive letter. Please remove the drive letter.

2. Please remove (always Safely Remove) all the external drives including any card reader and do a drive cleanup as indicated here. http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/298744-usb-thumb-drives-not-recognised-not-drive-letter.html#post2477076 It will clean your system of all non-present devices and you will be starting with a clean slate.(Incidentally this can resolve many drive letter assignment confusion of Windows OS, as you can see in the referenced thread.)

3. After you reboot on completion of the drive cleanup, plugin only your WD My Book and the Fantom drive. As you plug-in the driver for each device will be installed ab-initio. You can watch it.

4. Now take a screenshot of the Disk Management and post. While taking the screenshot, click on "Show/Hide Console Tree” and “Show/Hide Action Pane” buttons on the toolbar on top to hide those and also pull up the center partition line up as much as possible so that we get a clear and full view.





5. Also tell us whether you are sure that you had formatted the Fantom drive and it contains data and whether you want to recover the data..


(Your statements and the screenshots are so confusing - atleast to me - it is necessary that you do the above and restate the problem.)

Yesterday, I started a download and kept the pc on with my Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex External HDD 1TB plugged in. After I woke up I realized that there was a power cut and the computer went off unexpectadly (I had no UPS or any backup system).And, I found that my Ext HDD was not seen in my computer anymore (It was working perfectly until before I went to bed).
In device manager, under 'Disks' it shows 'GoFlex Hard Disk', but in BIOS or Disk Manager there is no sign of this HDD.

I really need the data in the HDD badly. Please help me recover it.
P.S. I read somewhere that keeping the HDD in freezer might help and give a little more time. Is that true? Worth the risk?
 

A:External HDD gets detected in Device Manager but not Disk Manager or seen in 'My Computer'

Power outage probably killed something in the enclosure or its PSU. The drive in the enclosure is probably fine. I would remove the drive from the enclosure and put it in a dock or install it in a desktop computer before considering freezing it. Freezing is usually reserved for click of death drives, and a last ditch effort.

I have a Toshiba laptop, model L505-ES5018. I had Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on here, but decided to reformat my hard drive using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. After the reformat was finished, I ran Windows Update and it found several items to download and install for me. I noticed that it also found optional items to download and install for me, so after all the important updates installed, I ran the optional updates. After all of this installed, I checked Device Manager to see if there were any errors and I found nothing. I assumed everything was fine. I decided to check Devices and Printers and under my laptop icon, there was a yellow icon with an exclamation point on it.

Hi everybody.

I just bought myself a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 yesterday. After installing the card and the required drivers everything works like a charm. However, every time I start up my PC I get a message saying that a new device has been found on my system. On checking Device Manager I found an "Unknown device" entry under "Other devices".

Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Unknown Device In Device Manager After Installing Radeon HD 4890

I have a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 (I also have a Gigabyte 4890 and XFX 4890 in two other PCs). I think you need to install the latest ATI Catalyst Suite. You may have installed the driver only package. Anyway, I think it has to do with the HDMI capabilities of the card. High def sound is built into the card (the HD part of the card name) and the HD sound driver is part of the Catalyst Suite. When you use an HDMI cable to an appropriate display, HD sound is also transmitted through the same cable from the Radeon graphics card.

Of course, be sure to install .NET Framework 2.0 as it is required before you can install the full Catalyst Suite. The HD sound driver won't install without it. At least I had trouble before I installed .NET 3.5. I went to Windows Update and installed .NET Framework 3.5. 2.0 is included in that update and 2.0 wasn't available separately.

i have searched for driver software using the update service but it cant find no update.

i have looked for the name of the manufacturer but found nothing.

i then disabled the unknown device, and sent a picture to my mobile phone. which confirmed that it was not the belkin bluetooth device. so i uninstalled the unknown device, restarted the computer. then when i logged in, it said that it had found a new device and wanted me to find the CD that came with it..

i would be greatful if any1 could help me on this..

thanks in advance

How do i figure out what driver or even component windows wants software for when in the device manager under other devices it lists an unknown device and windows update cannot find anything.

Oh and is it appropriate for me to use this topic to ask another question regarding explorer.exe as while i am inside a folder i delete (by choosing delete from the context menu in the tree view) while inside that folder on this particular laptop PC explorer. always crashes, collect information, sends it and restarts explorer. I have not experienced this problem on any other pc running any version of windows 7, oh and the same happened with build 7264 x32 and the current install of build 7600 x64.

Hello,
I recently put together a new computer, and in the process of of installing the USB 3.0 connector from the front of my GX500 case, I either bent numerous pins on the motherboard USB 3.0 header or the motherboard shipped that way and I inadvertently made matters worse. Anyway, that header on the motherboard is without a doubt unusable.
Since I don't really need the USB 3.0 functionality, I bought a USB 3.0 -> 2.0 adapter cable, connected one end to the connector on the front of the case and the other end into the USB 2.0/1.1 header on the motherboard. Unfortunately, when Windows 7 boots and I plug a device into the front ports of the case, Windows detects the front USB ports as "Unknown Device" within Device Manager yet says the driver is successfully installed. I've already downloaded the most current Intel chipset drivers for my motherboard, deleted and reinstalled all USB drivers, and all rear USB connections are working perfectly fine - it's just the two front ports that are connected from the case to the USB 2.0/1.1 ports via the adapter cable.  I've tried both USB 2.0/1.1 headers on the motherboard, and I've tried plugging in several devices to the front USB ports, and this problem still persists.
I've ensured the connection inside the case is solid, yet I cannot get Windows to recognize the front USB ports.  However, I have confirmed that power is being sent to the front ports because it charges my phone when I connect it to the front USB ports via m... Read more

My touchpad somehow didn't have a scroll up/down feature. I tried to install a new driver from HP website. Now, the touchpad has stopped working entirely and the touchpad device is not visible in the device manager nor in the mouse settings. I installed a number of drivers and updated drivers again but to no avail. Please guide (step-by-step) as to how should I proceed after downloading the requisite driver.

Hi,
My 7270 latitude touch screen stopped working shortly after first use (after win update worked again but for a short time).
All drivers are up to date.
In device manager a USB device shows as unknown (yellow warning triangle), otherwise there are no indications to the source of the problem.  There is no other touch screen device showing in device manager. 
How do I perminently solve this?
Thanks

Not sure which forum category I should use, thus using software (for Driver Problems).  Various times to fix a device you can go into Device Manager  and uninstall the driver, go to top of page click on Actions and click on Search For New Devices.  I am under the impression this will uninstall the device driver, then reinstall the exact same driver (code).  Why does this work?  It appears that the exact same code is now reinstalled and many times fixes a problem.  I have used this technique on mouse driver, internet driver, keyboard driver.  THis is a good and easy first process to try and make a quick fix.
 
Again, I am just trying to figure out why it works - I know I am missing something.  As an ex-programmer trying to figure out why the same code now will work when it had stopped working.
 
Why or under what circumstances does the driver code stop working, and then why does a reinstall of it at times lets it start working again.

I had some trouble last night and today with getting rid of a virus. Now that it is gone, I am having sound problems (maybe related, maybe not). This morning, when I opened iTunes I got a message that there was no audio device detected. After trying several things, I rebooted. Magically, I could play music again. However, a short while later, I again got an error message telling me that there is no audio device found, even though it shows up in Device Manager as working properly. The problem goes away for a short time after I reboot, but returns. It is Realtek AC 97. Why won't my computer keep recognizing it?

(It tried going to Realtek's site to download an update. It has updates for Windows 98, 95, etc., but not for XP. Or at least I couldn't find it.)

Hello,
My integrated speakers and audio port do not seem to be working. It happened after I was playing around with bluetooth trying to get that to work. Now only bluetooth is able to connect. 
So far I have tried:
System restore
Deleting and redownloading audio drivers
Adding legacy hardware for Realtek
ePSA test was able to hear the tones
The audio logo has a red X through it and only the bluetooth headphones drivers appear in device manager. Any ideas what might be the issue and how to solve them?

I performed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit using the flash drive shipped to me by HP. The prodocut ID of this flash drive is N3B20AV#ABA. The operating system installed without issue. However, the DVD drive is missing from file explorer. The BIOS recognizes the DVD drive and is able to boot to discs from the BIOS. I have checked device manager and the drive does not appear under the category "DVD/CD-ROM drives". In fact, this category does not even appear. Rather, it is listed under "Other devices" as hp DVDRAM GUB0N with a question mark. When going to the properties of this device, selecting the driver tab, and the driver details button, a message appears stating "no driver files are required or have been loaded for this device". Any suggestions on where I can find the driver so the DVD drive can be used within Windows? Images below show what is seen in device manager.

I basically just have a lot of random questions to be honest.. Probably easy for a lot of you! If you could work with me just a little bit that would be so much appreciated!

For example:
-BIOS help (x4,x1,auto for PCi) (Do I disable anything important in BIOS?)
-Device manager help (I know I could have half the devices.. So many system devices)
-Basic AV and Firewall questions (Am I okay just using Windows Defender and Windows Firewall?)
-Questions about sound devices

I have been looking at these forums for some time now. I have seen a lot of very knowledgeable people in here; and that Is what made me actually Sign up and try to be active as I can in these forums. I just need someones help for a little bit with me to work with me and explain a few things; like I said I would really appreciate it! Thank-you so much!

How do i solve this problem? When I restart my computer or "scan for new hardware devices" nothing happens and i dont get a headset audio device showing up

And it also doesnt appear in volume control icon > right click > playback devices
so i cant enable it there even when (show hidden/disabled devices) is enabled.

A:Xbox One Headset Device not detected in device manager

Hi realflow100,

what USB port are you plugging in the Headset in? I've noticed that sometimes depending on if you plug the headset in a USB2 or 3 port matters for some devices.

What is the audio driver you have for the moment, if you haven't got the latest here is the Acer support download page for your PC:
