Hardware Drivers :: Generic PnP Monitor Has Yield Symbol And Error
May 5, 2014
Recently, my laptop has run into a multitude of problems, but most of them have been solved by Dell. Today, I checked my device manager and I saw the yield symbol and an error on my monitor (called "Generic PnP Monitor), but nothing seems to be wrong with it as far as I know. I am thinking the driver may be out of date, but I am not sure. I have attached a few screenshots below to look at.
I'm on a new Dell that came with Windows 8 preinstalled, so this isn't an upgrade. I can't use the alt key to get the old symbol/codes. I always have typed 'alt-0176 on the keypad to get the degree symbol - it doesn't work anymore. what combo works now? When I type alt-0, the minute I hit the 0, there's a big '1' that appears on my monitor and that's it. It's like an overlay. Has this functionality been removed? Is there any character map type app that can I can copy and paste from?
I turned it on and I could not connect to the PUBLIC WIFI network that I usually connect to when I'm out. Then I tried connecting to other networks and they all just had a little piece of garbage icon on the wireless symbol.
A yellow alert sign.
I restarted my computer about 10 times, went into my device manager, used windows troubleshooting, uninstalled and rolled back my Intel Centro Wireless(M)2230 wireless driver. Nothing will work. I can`t really take a screenshot of my ip config /all.
This is reg uICE (Universal Infrared Control Engine). After installing in my Win 8 64-bit machine whileI try to launch it, I am getting the error-- The task monitor failed to start.reinstall uICE. Error: The service has not been started.
Reinstalling did not work. Nor did compatibility mode installation. Basically uICE declined to start in my Win 8 64 bit. Please note that this program worked fine on my previous 32 bit version of Win 8.
Is there a way to make it work on my PC? Alternatively you can suggest me some other programs like uICE to remote control multimedia applications like WMP, VLC player, Winamp etc?
I've got a Windows 8 laptop hooked up to a second monitor. I prefer to only use the second monitor, so I have the display settings set to second monitor only. Problem is that the monitor power settings I use don't seem to apply to my second monitor. It's always on when the laptop is on. I would like it to sleep when not used for 10 minutes. How do I accomplish that?
i need to backup all data i have on laptop as my hard is dying, so the only way i have now is to transfer all data to my old pc desktop but i have a problem as my desktop monitor is broken but my pc is ok with windows 7 so i need to make my TV hisense as monitor but when i connect it using vga no picture appears so how can i install tv on pc without any monitor or change resolution ?
I have an ASUS LED monitor and an MSI motherboard. When the computer goes into hibernate the blue LED indicator on the face of the monitor blinks. When it starts blinking there is a slight buzzing noise that is emitted. Since my computer is in my bedroom I was hoping to be able to change this so at least it doesn't make a noise when I am trying to sleep.
I'm trying to get back up and running. It's a Toshiba laptop that came with Windows 8 with it, obviously UEFI and an embedded key.The person that was using it said it started to act up a week before it fully crashed. Afterwards, it wouldn't boot up, it would either BSOD with an error code I found pertaining to a graphics driver error, or stay on a blue screen with nothing on it and then restart and go through an endless Automatic Repair loop with no success. I check the logs and Windows checked EVERYTHING but couldn't find the issue why it wasn't booting. Did chkdsk, bootrec repair, offline sfc scan, STD scan, tried refresh/reset but the drive was apparently locked, couldn't do a system restore as there weren't any restore points, tried doing startup repair four times; nothing worked.
So I decided it would have to be wiped and reinstalled with 8.1. Thought it would be an easy process. I used the vbs script to show the OEM key to activate Windows once I was up and running with 8.1. OK, but for some reason the key looked familiar. Keyed in the key, it didn't work. So I wiped that hard drive with Windows 8.0, ran the vbs script, SAME key of Windows 8 Pro as before. Odd. I already tried converting the 8.1 Core OEM I previously installed to 8.1 Pro and tried that key, still nothing.
Then I checked the key on the interwebs, XKY4K-2NRWR-8F6P2-448RF-CRYQH, the reason why it looked so familiar is because it's a generic install key for Windows 8/8.1! This isn't the OEM key at all!
I deploy Windows with a custom 8.1 .wim image and have used this several times already and I THINK I might have that key used originally to install Windows into my virtual machine I have going for it. My thinking was that I might have used sysprep one too many times, but that doesn't explain why even with the plain Windows 8 AND 8.1 Core images why the key that's being detected is a generic install key.
The icon images on the app screen are specific to the website they link to, but when I pin them to the Start menu, many of them become the generic "e" for explorer icons. They do retain the name of the website, which is okay, but if I change the size to "small", I am left with a bunch of similar-looking icons.
I installed Windows 8 Pro 64bit RTM, but I can't find the "generic display driver" for standard 1280x800 resolution notebook displays. Even "Windows Update" doesn't offer one. I don't want 1024x768. Am I blind or WTF?
Windows 7 64bit has this generic display driver, everything is ok with Windows 7. Do I get my money back from Microsoft?
I own an Acer Predator gaming PC, and specifically, it has an American Megatrends UEFI BIOS which is presumably modded my Acer.
In the advanced settings, both ''System Shutdown Temp'' and ''CPU Shutdown Temp'' are off by default.
So as the overly cautious-verging-on-paranoid when it comes to melting circuit boards, I turned both on> Strangely it didn't let me customise the temps for system shut down (I know my Haswell chip for instance has safe operating temps well above 85c)
So, after switching both on, I ran a Prime95 torture test - I was monitoring my temps, and after about 3 or 4 minutes my CPU & Motherboard temps hit 72c. My system then shutdown. I turned off those BIOS settings as it seemed pointless for a system to shutdown at 72c. I can't specify the values for shutdown, it just goes with the lowest common denominator?
My last question is; if I leave these BIOS Settings off, will my Haswell chip/system shut itself down if the temps get too high anyway?
Suddenly when I restart Windows (8) it goes to the generic desktop and if I click on esc it then goes to my user name and I have to click on it to go to my desktop. It used to go to my user name and log in automatically (without me having to click on it) until a few days ago.how I can fix this and what could have caused it?
I just purchased a acer V7-482PG-6662 ( Acer | Aspire V7 | V7-482PG-6662 | Overview ) and it comes with a 1080p display but the issue is that it wont go above 1366 x 768. This is right out of the box, i cant change to a higher resolution and all the drivers have been updated.
The Nvidia card works fine as it kicks in during gaming but even in games I cannot select a higher resoloution than 1366 x 768.
I even did a fresh install of windows 8 and windows 7 same issue. Device manager indicates "generic pnp display" under the monitor heading.
Others who have bought the laptop have not experienced this issue and their display is at 1080p.
EDIT: Tried a linux live usb and same issue, the resolution is only 1366 x 768, is this a hardware defect?
Today I plugged an hdmi to vga cable into my Win 8 sony vaio, and I plugged the other VGA side of the cable into an acee 22" monitor. I then chose from the right hand windows 8 panel to "extend to monitor", the laptop screen went black, the monitor screen remained without signal (extended screen did not show on monitor) and now the laptop screen is black.
I am now stuck and both laptop and monitor screen not working.
I tried unplugging cable, pressing fn and all the f1 to f12, shift, windows button but nothing is working.
I pressed off button then switched laptop back on and it showed the sony vaio logo on laptop then the screen went black again.
how could I return my laptop screen to work and stop the screen extension which is not working and which I am sure is the case.
Since upgrading to Windows 8.1, something weird has been happening. Each time I plug in a USB2 device into the USB3 port on my Asus T100 tablet/laptop (Atom processor, 2Gb RAM and 32Gb SSD), it fails to recognise the device and then throws an Error 43 and complains that the device did not provide a suitable descriptor.
Initially I thought it was a Hardware issue. USB3 devices in the same USB port worked correctly, so I figured it might be bent contacts. However, adding a USB3 hub with USB3 devices chained from it worked, but USB2 still did not work. I therefore suspect a configuration or driver issue, but I cannot figure out how to fix it. The following link seems to cover it

I have tried ever "re-install" style reset of Windows. It doesn't have any restore points to reset to....
So I have a WD external HD with all of my research data as well as some text books and other important things on there and for some reason I got an I/O error and after that the drive does not show on the computer anymore. The computer recognizes that there is a drive there and will read that it is a WD passport but cannot tell the size of the disk and will not register it as an external drive whose media I can explore and work with. What is wrong and how can I retrieve the data?
I am beyond the veil of anger with this. I believe something is wrong with my DirectX 11 on Windows 8.1. I would go to play certain games, and it would pop up an error message saying "Cannot Set Display Mode" or something similar to that. I get the feeling it's DirectX, as I had recently updated it, but did nothing to interfere. I have spent the last week (literally) trying to fix this, and everything has failed. I understand that DirectX 11 comes with Windows 8 and everything, but when Windows doesn't even realize that it's malfunctioning (DXDiag did not work, nor did the thousands of Runtime Installers I tried), something is definitely wrong.
When I search for updates with windows update it finds the drivers I want but it gives me an error message whenever I try to install them.
I already tried downloading the latest windows update (when I install it, it says the update was succesful and asks me to restart, but when I search again after restarting the update shows up again and lets me install it again).
I also tried deleting and renaming my software distribution folder and using the windows troubleshooting program.
Overall I'm not really too fussed about most of the things it's trying to install apart from the drivers for the wireless reciever for my xbox controller as it won't work without them. When I try to install the driver files through device manager it gives me this error message
my main reason for mentioning the windows update problem is that I assume the problems are linked as the wireless reciever works perfectly on my laptop. Up to about a week ago it also worked perfectly on this computer using the same usb port that it uses now.
As you can see, on the 19th, it suddenly began to say "NULL DRIVER". I checked my system restore and it tells me that I installed a windows update on that day just before it suddenly stopped working. I tried reverting back to this restore point (before the update) and nothing had changed, the device still would not work.
My Optical Drive is not showing up in My Computer and I have a laptop. In Device Manager, I found that my MATSHITA BD-CMB UJ160B gives error code 19. What can I do and if need be, where can I get the driver for it?
First of all Re-install is NO option WHATSOEVER. Because i have 500 + games installed. I have a masterbackup of it but i have 200+ new games I want to fix this installation before I do a new masterbackup.
The problem is I can't install nvidia drivers I got failed to install simple error. I think this is related to the processor /raminfo not showing in management computer and DXDIAG.
So I read around abit and it was said problem might be related to WMI? So I did all things suggested but I still get the error code 127 when trying to start WMI.
I'm unable to print on my Xerox WorkCentre PE220. Win 8 installed the driver properly and did not show any errors or red flags during and after the installation. When I print a window shows up saying error cannot print.
On my laptop, an error showed up suddenly last morning. It said something along the lines of this "Your computer's Hard Drive is failing". In more details it was my Western Digital drive, labeled at C:/. I instantly shut it off. It is a NE model laptop.
When I try to format my flash drive it shows that the drive is Write-Protected. When I tried to remove it through diskpart it said it completed successfully, but when I try to format it again it still didn't work. I also tried removing it using REGEDIT with storage device policies, but that STILL didn't work.
