Help finding a driver please. (SOLVED)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am trying to set up a PC for my daughter to use until I can get a case to put my old socket 939 rig in for her. The monitor for it is a Proview 14 inch flat panel model # 468p,Product # is PL-482i. Its hooked up to an old Gateway with Windows ME ( sucks I know but she'll have a decent AMD 3500+ Win XP rig soon enough) I have searched everywhere for drivers for this monitor but only come up with dead links. Does anyone happen to have this monitor and can send me a copy of the drivers or know where I can get them myself please?

Failing finding the driver, the monitor should function fine as a Plug and play monitor (default set up for windows). windows will see it and just install it's basic screen driver. My family had a Proview 17" many moons ago, the thing was huge.

i just had a look, can't find anything :/

have you tried using a driver for a different monitor that's similar, same size screen and make maybe. Do this at your own risk though, I shall not be held responsible if this goes horribly wrong.

Also, this may sound stupid but have you got the original disk?

Don't have the original disk. Got the monitor from my brother and he didn't have the disk. When I hooked it up to the old gateway with Windows ME it tries to find the driver every time the computer is booted up.

I haven't checked for drivers from a similar model. I think the date on the back of this 1 is 2005. I'll try that.
