Well I tried to reinstall windows vista HP (32bit), and I installed all the drivers and everything, then installed the graphics drivers, and it says my monitor is a "Generic Non-PnP monitor" and whenever I try to go to native resolution (1600x1200) it says "Analog out of Range 75.5kHz/60Hz" the referesh rate is at 60Hz (lowest) so I don't know what's going on. The lcd came with a driver disc, but you have to install it manually by going to device manager and updating it. But when I put in the cd and tell it to search the cd for the drivers, it just says "Monitor already has the best drivers" and it says its still a "Generic Non-PnP monitor" when before I reinstalled vista I just plugged it in and it went to 1600x1200 res and everything was good. Any help is GREATLY appretiated!!!
What graphics card do you have? Are you plugging the monitor in via VGA, DVI, HDMI, or somthing else?
I have a 8800 GTS, and im using the DVI connection, but the lcd only has VGA so I have the converter thing on it. It worked perfect before I reinstalled :(
Huh. I've never had a monitor that needed its own drivers...
I know it says to install the drivers via the Device Manager, but open the driver disk in Windows Explorer and see if there's a setup.exe or install.exe or something along those lines. If there is, try running that and try to install right off the disk.
Nope, no install.exe or any applications. There's a thing called forte'manager but I already installed it, nothing to do with the monitor, just effects and stuff. But all the other files are in "Drivers" folder, and when I right-click the INF files I can click install, but it just says "This INF file does not support this method of installation". I've already reinstalled the gfx card drivers 3 times.
Finnally got it installed, but didn't fix the problem where I can't go to native res. It now says LG 22" bla bla monitor installed (did it through device manager and chose let me pick driver, then it installed it from the disc) but now when I go to 1600x1200 it says "Analog out of range 74.9kHz/60Hz" any solutions to that?
It looks like it's trying to force the monitor to run at a refresh rate that it doesn't support. Try 59 or 60Hz, those are the most common for LCD's.
Can't go less than 60Hz, plus when I go higher refresh rate, says the same thing.
Then just try 60. Most LCD's don't support any higher than that.
YES finnally fixed it, reason was I was installing the really old video card drivers for it, so I downloaded new ones and used driver sweep to clear out the old ones. Went to control panel and showed 59 and 60Hz refresh rates. So I went and changed to 1600x1200 and bam worked. Was video card drivers all along. Thanks for the help though!!
