    Driver for HP 2207 Display?

    Does anyone know where I can find a driver that will work with the HP 2207 display? I'm running 12.04.

    If there are any display/video drivers available for your computer they would be displayed in additional drivers.

    It usually is not the monitor that needs drivers but the video card.
    What video card/chip do you have?

    I have never installed a monitor driver in Linux. Why do you feel you need to? What is not working for you on that monitor?

    This is a dual monitor setup. The computer is a Dell D620 laptop and the monitor is an HP 2207. I need both for my work. Right now, the 2207 is working fine, but setup will not allow me to extend the desktop onto the laptop. All I get is a mirror; the same info on both screens. Maybe I don't need a different dirver, but some way to expand my options in setup? If so, I'll move to that thread.

    Thank you!

    This is generally a video driver limitation.

    When I installed Mint 16 on my desktop, I could only get one of my monitors to display. With previous Mint versions and Ubuntu versions, I could get BOTH monitors to display. When I then installed the AMD fglrx drivers, I could get BOTH monitors to display.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Yep. This is your video card. What do you have? And what are you using to configure your displays?

    Note: This works fine and as you need on my laptop with an Intel vidoe chip, and the stock monitor config from Gnome.

    Well, this is a bit strange. I installed Ubuntu Tweak and played around with the setting in there and all of a sudden my two displays work great and the laptop is now an extension of the HP2207 display. I will NEVER change anything in Tweak again!

    Thank you for your kind assistance!

    One more detail on this, it seems that what actually fixed the issue was not installing Ubuntu Tweak, but it was actually switching to 2-D mode. I did the same thing on another laptop I just installed to a remote display and it worked again.
