LG w2252s monitor driver

Hi

I am trying to find a driver for an LG 2252S monitor and it is proving surprisingly difficult.  Does anyone know where I can find this?

Many thanks

All of the w2252 displays use the same driver package regardless of further designation (TS,TQ,TSTQ) and are available for XP and Vista via download here:

Manual Look-up:
>LG Support: http://www.lge.com/us/support/product/support-product.jsp
>Computer Products > Monitors > LCD Monitor > W2252**

Monitor Page:

Driver Link:
Found on Driver/Software Tab - Link to W2252.zip located @ bottom

Many thanks

The zip file contains 3 files - a scecurity catologie, an ICC Profile and setup information.  Just to be clear what do I do next (I am on Windows 7)

Many thanks - this has worked without problem.  However the display still looks the same (ie default 640x480) and it won't allow me to change this.  If I look at display properties it is saying

'LG W2252 on Standard VGA Display Adapter'

I am assuming that this is the problem.

I should explain that I have just installed Windows 7 - on Vista the display adaptor was Intel 82865g.  I have downloaded driver for this but when I try to install it says that it doesn't support this operating system.

Any ideas how I can resolve this?

Ahh ok. I was wondering why you wanted to install the Monitor Driver.

In order to maximize resolution capabilities you will need to install the correct driver version for you display adapter. By the looks of Intel's site they are not supporting a Windows 7 driver update for that chip.

Two things you can try:

1. Download and run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if it agrees with what I have found:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1B544E90-7659-4BD9-9E51-2497C146AF15&displaylang=en

2. a. Download the latest version of the XP driver from Intel and run in compatibility mode. Right Click File > Properties > Compatibility Tab > Select Run As XP > Select Run As Administrator > OK
    b. Install Driver after compatibility adjustment is made.

I have found this to work with nVidia graphics drivers but not ATI. I have not yet tested with any Intel graphics drivers.

Additionally, I am assuming you have already downloaded and installed all of the Win7 updates for OS, Software, and Hardware and that the driver was not found there. If you have not then you will want to run through all of the MSU's as well.
