I have a uga2ka connected to an hp dv8t notebook running windows 7 ultimate. I use external monitors thru a special hp docking station powered by a special (bus extender?) cable that plugs into the notebook. I am using a sceptre 24" (1900x1200) monitor on the external monitor port and another sceptre 24" on the uga2ka.
I was only able to install the device thru installing the drivers from the accompanying disk first and then plugging the hardware. That is ok. I only mention it in case it relates to my problem. Each time I tried to install via windows update I got an error “dwm.exe failed to exit properly.”
I now have the device working and am quite happy to have the extra screen real estate as I must often use a lot of software simultaneously. But I do have two issues that I would really like to solve. First, I have a screen saver issue. Instead of the screen saver starting, all screens go black and windows prints a message in white on each monitor that says, “Windows cannot start this screen saver.” This now happens whether my external monitors are connected or not. It is the same for all screen savers, because I am unable to preview any others in the windows display properties window. I get a similar message for each that I switch to try.
Second, I have a logitech nano (usb cordless) mouse with awesome wheel features that I use constantly. But when I use the wheel on the ugk2a-connected display, as I scroll up and down, the windows on that screen (not just the one that I am scrolling in) tend to wobble from side to side slightly. It is usable but pretty disconcerting. It is also not continuous. It is erratic, but it happens at least half or the time spent scrolling.
Any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to keep this monitor as part of my desktop. Thanks for a handy product.
