Re: I need drivers for HP TFT7600 G2 KVM

TFT7600 KVM is a standards-compliant display + keyboard + mouse.


The standard keyboard and mouse drivers are included in most server OSs.


HP seems to think that the display component does not need a driver: normally, the display controller (GPU) receives the video mode specifications of the display from the display itself through the display cable (VGA/DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort). This information is known as EDID.


A "driver" for a display is only needed in some special situations:

  • if the manufacturer has made a mistake and the EDID information reported by the display is not accurate
  • if you're using a VGA-to-coaxial display cable, which cannot pass EDID information
  • if you're using a strange OS that cannot use the standard EDID information

In that case, the "driver" is either just an updated version of the EDID information,  or the performance specifications of the display in a machine-readable form.


What makes you think that a driver is needed in your situation?
