Monitors should function without Drivers, though the Graphics Chipset needs a Driver !

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

✔ Best Answer
The so called drivers for monitors aren't really drivers but definition files, where the supported resulutions and the appropriated frequencies are listed.

So as stated in #1 you don't need a driver for the monitor but for the graphics card.

"....i Had problem withing "

Describe what your problem is.

You should ALWAYS get video while booting your computer BEFORE Windows is supposed to load,

(....in most cases, unless your desktop computer mboard's main chipset supports hybrid video, it has onboard video, and you are plugging the monitor into a video card installed in a mboard slot that has a video chipset that is not supported by the hybrid video feature - that can be fixed by changing one or two settings in the bios Setup, when the monitor is connected to the onboard video port, which will still produce video by default, when there is a video card in a PCI-E X16 slolt.)

Otherwise, if you are getting no video at all from it, there is probably something else wrong with your computer,
(....or you are connecting the monitor to the video port for onboard video rather than a video port on a card installed in a slot space - you probably will get no video from that port from any monitor in that case).

The monitor DOES NOT need drivers from the hard drive in order to produce video while booting the computer BEFORE Windows loads, and if it does produce video while booting, in most cases it will produce video in Windows too whether specific monitor drivers were loaded in Windows or not.

Similarly, the video adapter's chipset DOES NOT need drivers from the hard drive BEFORE Windows loads, and if it does produce video while booting, in most cases it will produce video in Windows too whether specific video drivers were loaded in Windows or not.

If you DO have video while booting, but NO video after Windows starts to load, that's easy to fix.....

For 2000 or XP...

Boot into Enable VGA mode.

Note - that's missing this...

Remove any bootable CDs or DVDs you have in drives.
Press F8 repeatedly while booting, don't hold down the key, starting very early in the boot.
When the Windows boot choices menu appears, choose Enable VGA mode. )
.......

You don't have to install specific monitor drivers, but it's recommended that if you have an LCD (or LED LCD, or Plasma) monitor, you SHOULD install then, then by default Windows will only show you the settings the monitor model can display. If you use Plug-n-Play monitor drivers, you can choose settings that can DAMAGE an LCD (or LED LCD, or Plasma) monitor !


There is no such model as Samsung Syncmaster sa100 - it's a series of models.

Find the proper model number - it's on a label on the back of the monitor.

E.g. S19A100N

Go here:
http://www.samsung.com/levant/suppo...

Click on the PC and office icon, then scroll up a bit

Select PC monitor - LCD - choose the correct model, click on Search.
Click on the Driver tab.

If it doesn't list drivers for XP
- try downloading it and installing it anyway - The "drivers" themselves are just an *.inf file that tells Windows the resolutions etc. the monitor can display - the *.inf file itself isn't operating system specfic.
- OR - go to the Microsoft Windows Update web page and do a Custom search - look in the optional downloads for the monitor drivers, they may be there. If they are, if you install them, they will be installed AND Windows's Display Properties will be set to USE them.

After you have installed them, RIGHT click on a blank part of the main desktop screen, choose Properties - Settings tab.
If it doesn't say (xxx video adapter) on Samsung or Syncmaster something, Windows isn't USING the drivers - you need to make Windows load the monitor drivers for it.

See the directions here.....

Boot into Enable VGA mode.

You don't need to boot into Enable VGA mode if you have a display in Windows when you load Windows normally - just follow the directions for changing your monitor drivers.
If you have already installed the specific monitor drivers, instead of choosing Have Disk, click on the box with the check mark in it for Show compatible devices to remove the check mark, then scroll down the list to Samsung and choose your specific monitor model.
