Iīve recently bought a iiama prolite E2407HDS Monitor. When connecting to PC (Windows XP Service pck 3, AMD Phenom X4 Asus motherboard), it recognizes it without a problem but the definition in display center is Plug and Play monitor.
My display 1920x1080 works well but I wanted to downgrade to another resolution but all the other resolutions seem to display poorly.
So, I thought downloading the drivers for my monitor could solve this problem and so I downloaded the drivers from the the supplier and tried to follow the steps to install the monitor:

" 9. Click the "Driver" tab and slect "Update Driver"
10. Select "Install from a specific location" and "Next"
11. Select "Don't Search" and "Next"
12. If you are installing from FD insert it into your disk drive.
13. Click "Have Disk...".
14. Click Browse and navigate to where you stored the driver and select the location that matches your model and click OK.
15. Click "Show all hardware".
16. Select "Manufacturer: Iiyama".
17. Select the model name that matches your monitor then click "Next >".

The problem is that, surprisingly (am I doing something wrong?!), I donīt see my monitor there, even following these steps. Automatically and choosing the directory to where I saved the drivers, Windows cannot recognize any drivers.
Is there another way to install the monitor? (i.e: directly in regedit, using cmd, etc...)

Thanks for the help!

If you look with Windows Explorer in the location where you unzipped the files, do you find the LCD Monitor folder and within that folder, one called ProLite E2407HDS, with the file E2407HDS.INF?

If not, the ZIP may be corrupted. If you double-click on the original zip file, you'll be able to see the contents and find out if the files you need are actually in the zip.

Also, an LCD monitor image will always look inferior at a resolution other than the native. Is it really necessary for you to run a high resolution screen at a lower resolution?

well, I was finally able to install it but I donīt see any change with the other resolutions in windows (the letters seem strange)... but in games I could swear the definition is better...
Naaa, I just thought about trying a lower resolution because the letters are small and its sometimes hard to see without glasses...
thanks for replying though :thumbsup:
