  1. hi, just want to know if its at all possible to tell windows to STFU and NOT let it install its default monitor driver (which then has to be rolled back to install your brand name driver)

    this is in relation to my other thread that was in here a few weeks ago.

    How could you install Windows then? :p The graphical part of the Windows install is done using the VGA driver.

    You could try installing the correct Benq drivers or the "other" default driver before VGA drivers and telling it to use these for your monitor. Then install VGA and reboot.

    I would guess the issue is the suckiness of the monitors and not Windows..

    Hello TecsoundVic,

    Right click on My Computer ---> click Manage ---> Click Device Manager ---> Click Display adapters ---> Right click on your old card and choose Disable.

    After that, windows won't ask you install the old driver anymore.

    haha yea i know what u mean nodsu, but what i was getting at, is when windows installs it chooses its basic driver which works with 99.999999999% of the worlds monitors, but then these systems we use, have i dunno somthing weird in them which makes windows want to change monitor drivers when the units are taken off our test screens (used for building them) and taken out to site and connected to another brand of monitor. they then go black just after the windows loading logo. :(

    thanks op2, will keep that in mind and see if i can apply it :)

    thanks for replys.
