Windows 10: Dell 1708FP monitor problem Solved

    Dell 1708FP monitor problem

    I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and something strange is happening with my monitor. It is a Dell 1708FP connected to a standard display adapter. The upgrade process configured them as a basic display adapter and generic non-PNP monitor.

    Everything works great after I boot. But when the power options turn off the monitor, it comes back looking all faint and washed out. This does not happen when I turn the monitor off with the power button.

    I changed the power setting to never turn the monitor off, which I hope will work for now (haven't given it much time yet). Anyone else seen a situation like this>

    Thanks for your help.

    Haven't seen that, personally.

    You'd probably do better if you had specific drivers. Your system uses an old nVidia nForce 630 chipset, and may use its integrated graphics or a discrete card.

    The most recent drivers nVidia offers for the 630/7100 are for Windows 7. These are the 64 bit version:

    Drivers | GeForce

    32 bit:

    Drivers | GeForce

    You may have to use compatibility mode to install them. In principle, they ought to work: Win 10 can supposedly use drivers as old as WDDM 1.0 (Vista).

    Best of luck.
