LG Flatron monitor - display/driver issues!

  SOFTWARE SID 10:15 28 Feb 2003

Two days ago, I had to reformat my C: drive and reinstall Win98SE - all has gone well, except on the display front.

I'm using the LG Flatron L1510S, and when I attempt to install the correct drivers from the CD, I get a message saying:

"The specified location does not contain information about your hardware".

I have a slightly out of focus display, whereas a month ago, when I first installed the monitor it was brilliantly sharp.

Specs (from Norton Utilities) -

AMD Duron 800 mhz processor
Memory : 256 MB
Video: 640x480 in 32 bit colour, Rage Fury Pro
O/S: Windows 98 SE

Not sure how much this is to go on, but all advice received with gratitude!

Clean the CD.

Try again...

You could go into the CD by "Exploring" the CD. Look for the "DRIVERS" folder. Right click > Copy > Paste the folder to the desktop...

Now go to install the monitor driver but get windows to look on the desktop instead of the CD.

Thanks for that response - all seems perfectly logical and well worked through...

...you can guess the punchline can't you?!

Yes, still getting the error message - thanks for trying though!

All very frustrating, because a month ago, I just plugged in and it worked brilliantly out of the box.

a bit unrelated but i m thinking of buying this same monitor and wanted to ask it was ok?

try going to the manufacturers site and see if you can download the latest drivers.

Heading back to the LG website in a moment to have a sniff round.

Must say, when it was installed it was a great machine!

how was it with movies and games if you tried them? and how high can you go screen resolution wise?

  SOFTWARE SID 14:09 28 Feb 2003

When it worked - games wise it was vg - I'm a big user of EA Sports' FIFA 2003, and it gives a very nice result with that visually - can't remember off hand how high I took the resolution to when I was experimenting after I first purchased though.

Latest update - tried to install L1510B driver instead, but got the same error popping up. I've emailed LG support, but sceptical about hearing back.

A long shot here - I've been pondering the possibility of an upgrade to Win XP for the past few months - would that solve the problem here, or would I end up with a nice new O/S and a still fuzzy monitor?!

i checked a while back and i think i saw this monitor listed among those compatible with win xp. so it may work! don't quote me anywhere though ;o) the lg support are quite good you should get an e mail within a day.

are you sure you have the right driver? cause i think there are two variants to this model 656 and 686? not very sure. but the drivers from your cd should have worked anyhow

is this the where you got your drivers from? just checking :o) click here

if you search here click here you should find it among the list of supported monitors :o)
