Windows 7: LG Monitor Driver

LG Monitor Driver

When I go to the LG website and download the Windows 7 driver for the LG Flatron W2361VG-PF my AVG Anti-Virus goes insane saying the Setup.exe file has the virus Win32/Virut in it. Anyone else run into this?

What website did you use?

When I go to Support - LG Electronics USA
and go to the download section and then list computer items and then displays
all I see are owner manuals and the like listed.

No drivers or software come up with any search there.

Makes me wonder what hole in the wall joint you found 'drivers' at..or
what super secret LG site hides such files.

EDIT.. oh, by the way , why are yyou looking for 'drivers' for your monitor anyway?
My LG monitor didnt' need any special 'driver' to work with Windows 7.
After doing some more searching I've yet to find any drivers of tis sort from LG offiial sites.
I do find LG Display 'drivers' at sites I personally would flag as highly suspect sites to download files from.
Good luck.

My LG came with a "driver disc" but as far as I could dig, couldn't find any drivers on it? It works just fine with the standard display driver Windows 7 is using...are you having problems with yours?

LG lack of Windows 7 support

I've had Windows7-64 bit for the last 9 months and have been unable to find a driver from LG that will give me the resolution that I used to have on my 22" screen. At 1280 X 1024 I should receive much higher resolution. BTW, the resolution was perfect prior to upgrading to 64bit. When I contacted LG 8 months ago they basically told me to go pound sand. I'm very disappointed in the company, both at their response and their lack of supporting the largest desktop OS in the world. I will never purchase another LG product and encourage all my clients, family and friends to follow suit. I am now shopping for a new large screen monitor - so if you know anyone that supports 64bit I would appreciate your suggestions to save me some time of researching.

You shouldn't need a driver for the monotor.

As far as the resolution, make sure you have the current drivers for your graphics card. this should resolve your resolution problem.

In terms of the monitor itself, you can install the one off the disc. Its basically a color profile if you choose to use it.

I found it easier to update from the Device Manager manually, and point it towards the CD.

R/Click the Monitor in the Monitor Section and choose Update Driver.
Then Browse my Computer.
Then Browse to the CD/DVD drive as the location. Leave the "Include Sub Folders" box checked.

Thanks - slightly different resolution

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately the Disk I have does not have a Windows7 driver and LG does not yet have a Windows 7 64bit driver. However, upon looking at my display adapter driver I noticed I was using the Standard VGA instead of the NVIDIA driver from Dell. Once loaded - resolution issues are resolved. Hope this helps anyone else struggling with this.
Thanks again.

LG W2452T and Windows 7

I was having the same problem with the LG W2452T monitor and Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. I originally had Vista but upgraded and the monitor would no longer be recognized.. I went to the Dell website and downloaded - nVidia GeForce 8400M - driver for Vista and it fixed my problem. Here's the link:

Get Windows 7 to use a generic driver that works with size you want, especially if it worked in that resolution before.

Otherwise, I think you want video card driver updated, too!
