    Monitor not listed in Device manager/Windows 8 automatically updates driver

    john barley

      Inspiron 15R, Windows 8 64 bit. Intel HD Graphics 4000.

      There is no monitor listed in Device Manger. Only the display adapters is listed there.

      If I uninstall and delete the graphics driver, I can get the monitor listed in device manager. It's listed as Generic non-PnP monitor.

      However, when I restart the PC, the Intel driver automatically reinstalls and the monitor is once again gone from Device Manager.

      I have the same problem on another PC but on that one the driver doesn't automatically get reinstalled.

      I tried going to devices and printers and disabling automatic installation of drivers but it does nothing.

      I tried downloading and installing the driver directly from Intel but the monitor is still not listed in device manager.
