windows 8 driver for hp 2009v monitor

i'm looking for a windows 8 driver for my hp 2009v monitor. it doesn't exist. windows 8 uses the generic pnp monitor driver as a result, which means i can't set the optimal resolution of 1600x900. what should i do?

Hi aqibjr1,

 

Is this a new PC that you connected to your older monitor? Are you certain the PC video card can be set to that resolution?

Re: windows 8 driver for hp 2009v monitor

Hi,

Thanks for your response. I previously had Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit running on it and the monitor's resolution was optimal. Windows detected that it was HP 2009v and allowed the resolution of 1600x900. In windows 8 however, the system couldn't detect that. Therefore, it was using the Generic pnp monitor driver and not displaying in 1600x900.

 

To my knowledge, there is an issue with the drivers. Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks :)

Did you try a manual install of W7 driver?
