I have been having the worst difficulty in locating a driver for a V7 monitor model D24W33..

I have seen articles mentioning that the drivers were located on the V7 site, but they don't appear to be available anymore.

The PC is using Windows 7, and all the graphic card drivers are up to date, but the monitor still has a random flicker issue that is driving my wife crazy (I don't blame her)


Is there a place to go that might help me in attaining the driver for that display?

never heard of them, have you used their site to DL drivers before?

I am always extremely paranoid of them

No, I haven't. I was going to let you be the test case. Let me know if it blows anything up beyond repair.

I hit the DL, and the file it created is called

Download_DriverDetective-6.3.1.5

doesn't look like a driver file to me ...

so I haven't clicked that.. out of fear

Well, you know 12 is the go-to guy. Give him a shout and I bet he can point you in the right direction.

The only other thing I could suggest is to contact V7 directly and see if they have any brilliant inspired suggestions.

Since it wasn't my PC, I tried it and surprise surprise..

It downloads an entire program that you can use to scan the PC for drivers, then gives you the option to pay for the program to be able to get the drivers that need updating.

Good to know. I'll mark that one off the list.


Call V7. I'm sure there's a support guy there who can confuse you even more.

(General support direction - "reload your operating system")

just let it scan and it will detect all of your drivers that need updating. send me a U2U or post in this thread if you encounter any problems. good luck

Thanks for the help, I went ahead and called the V7 folks and they said it was a PnP monitor and there were no specific drivers for it..

Probably just on it's last leg, oh well, time for a new one

Makes you wonder what that howtodrivers site was going to sell you, doesn't it?

Don't worry about it. I have about 4 million things to thank you for, as well.

I got a warning from the Web Of Trust plugin when I clicked on that link. I wouldn't download or install anything from it.


On topic, you could try going to the Windows update site and set it to install all updates for your computer. It's often set to install only "necessary" updates, and sometimes doing this will update the drivers.

(Go Here with Internet Explorer, it won't work with Firefox or any other browser).

driverdetective?wtf guis! you want him to put adware on his computer.
mate you dont need a driver,the flicker issue is resolved by playing with the options on the monitor or the monitor maybe damaged. play with the options or return it.
try different HZ or color temperatures or something

I was about to suggest (before reading all), to simply try the monitor on another computer, and see if there is the same flicker issue...

Most monitor issues are NOT driver based, but a physical one, with the monitor itself...

Did you change the screen refresh rate to something higher than 60 Hertz?
display properties. advanced settings. monitor. Change it to the highest setting your monitor can go.

Thanks again for all the help


It sure looks like the monitor just decided to give up the ghost, I tried to hook it up to my laptop via the HDMI cable and the graphics software doesn't recognize it.. not going to bother to try with the serial cable..

So good for the Mrs.. she is happy now with her new monitor:
