Re: HP - Other Hardware - HP w1907 Wide LCD Monitor
I had the same problem and spent 3 full days on the phone with HP Tech
support (or lack thereof) with very little help and plenty of frustration.

I finally figured out a solution on my own:
Uninstall your monitor exixting driver and replace it with the Windows
Generic PNP Monitor. Then Uninstall your video card drivers (in my case
Nvidia).
Now reboot your computer. When it returns, Windows (Vista) will prompt you
to reinstall your video drivers. Allow Windows to search and find the
correct ones to install. After installation is complete, your monitor and
video drivers will be correct again. Now try to play a copy-protected DVD...
it WORKS !! Also, after the reinstall, I am no longer "nagged" to update my
HP w1907 driver. I hope this helps you !! :-)
