HP w1907 19-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've been happily using my HP w1907 19-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor on Windows 10 for years. It's plugged into my desktop's HDMI port. I had an old CRT monitor plugged into the VGA port and used a dual-monitor setup. It's worked great for years. But the CRT monitor went out and I had to buy a new monitor - another flat screen (LG).

 

Anyway, I put the new one onto the HDMI port on the computer and moved my HP w1907 over to the VGA port. Now I'm getting an error message about the input signal being out of range and I need to change to 1440x900-60Hz. Well I DID change it to those settings, but I still get the error. The driver for the monitor is the generic PnP one, so I tried to find a driver for this specific monitor on the HP site and it says there is no driver available for Windows 10?

 

BTW, I didn't have a VGA cable, so the HP w1907 19-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor is connected with an HDMI cable and VGA to HDMI adapter.

 

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the "out of range" error and/or how to find a driver for this monitor that works with Windows 10? Thanks!

Hi:

 

You should be able to manually install the Windows Vista 64 bit driver that I zipped up and attached below.

 

Download and unzip the driver file to its folder.  Do not do anything with the files in the folder.

 

Go to the device manager.  Click to expand the Monitors device manager category.

 

Click on the Generic PnP monitor listed there.  Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update driver.

 

Select the Browse my computer for drivers option and browse to the driver folder you unzipped.


Make sure the Include subfolders box is checked, and the driver should install.

 

After the driver has installed you should see your HP w1907 Wide LCD Monitor listed appropriately in the device manager.

Thanks Paul. Sadly, BOTH of my monitors (a dual monitor system) show "Generic PnP Monitor." And even though I tried disabling them BOTH, they both still come on. Sigh. I hate computers.

You're very welcome.

 

Sorry that driver didn't work for you.
