driver for tandon monitor needed

  Rubyiat 21:56 17 Jul 2003

Where can I get a driver for a Tandon TF1202 monitor(1992 but still works). This is a 14inch screen so with the black edges its a bit small to work with - even if it was a free gift. Using Windows 95.

With respect VoG I don't think it is as simple as that :-)

A long time ago [early/mid 90's] I seem to remember using a Tandon monitor , a 1204 I think?

"Fixed Frequency" is a term that comes to mind.

I think that these monitors worked on a frequency of something like 35Hz , and to get them to work required a "Fixed frequency graphics card".

A search elsewhere would probably bring up more info than I can offer but an investment in such an old piece of kit may not be worth the effort or cash with monitors so competitively priced at present.

If it still works, then you don't need a "driver". Monitors neither need nor have drivers - they have an inf (information) file, which is a text file that simply lists the parameters the monitor can use. If there isn't a specific one for the monitor, Windows simply uses one of the many standard one sit has pre-set into it.
