Solved!

Envy27 device manager lists monitors as Generic PnP Monitor

HP Recommended
Envy27
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

In my device manager under Monitors, it lists the only driver as the Generic PnP Monitor. Is there a different one from HP.

 

I have been having all kinds of graphic issues and crashes... so I am thinking the the driver is wrong. Is that possible?

 

Thanks!

@DerrickG721 That's good, I'm glad there are no issues, and to clarify, the in-built display of both All-in-one desktops and notebooks, are always mentioned as "Generic PnP Monitor" by default, that's how they are designed and that cannot be changed, 

If an alternate monitor is connected to either of the two (desktop AIO or notebook), the display name of that particular monitor shows up on the device as you've mentioned, your monitor shows - "HP w1907 Wide LCD Monitor".

 

I hope that answers your query,

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Monitor will always be mentioned as generic PnP by default.

If you have issuer with the graphics card, run a component test on it:

Run Extensive system test to check for hardware failures.

1. Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.

2. Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.

3. On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click System Tests.

4. Click Component Test.

5. Select graphics card and run test.

 

Let me know how it goes.

@DerrickG721 There seems to me some misunderstanding, I see that the first post addresses your concern when the tech posted - "Monitor will always be mentioned as generic PnP by default."

Is there any specific issues you need to address? please elaborate.

There was no specific issues. I was just wondering why the main monitor comes up as a PNP monitor and my second comes up as a HP w1907 Wide LCD Monitor. I thought maybe the main screen was missing a proper driver. Thats all.
