External Monitor won't connect


  • I am running Windows 8 on my Motion Computing LE1600 and I am impressed to see Windows Aero working. However I was attempting to connect my tablet to an external monitor and was unable because the graphics driver is the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter". This is not bad because it allows me to use the fancy visual effects, but the original device driver is not supported and therefore I am unable to use my VGA out port.

    Question: Is there anyway around this for me to be able to use my external monitor?

  • Hi Benjamin,

    Looks like Windows 8 has installed one of it's default generic display adapter drivers. To get the advanced features for your graphics device, you may need to install the OEM drivers from the vendors website. The windows 7 x86/x64 drivers should be compatible.
