There were not many resources for the driver other than compaq,you will need to deal with them on supplying a driver to suppor w2k
You can check www.driverguide.com,which someone had posted a similar driver request.

If the label on the monitor identifies who built the monitor for Compaq, you might be able to use their driver.

However, if you are asking about what I think you are, the easy access button might be part of the video card driver.

If the easy access button is used to change screen resolution, those are normally part of the display addapter (video card) driver, and not the monitor driver.

I would check with Compaq for an updated driver for the video card, and install that.

The eassy access buttons anable me to turn off and on the computer, access the internet, turn up the vol. and forward or reverse the CD in the DVD when I'm watching a movie. The monitor works great, but the Access button is disable due to thedriver are for win95/98/me.

Hi,

If the monitor is working ok and its just the extra buttons, then buying a new monitor just for that would be overkill.

You can get keyboards with extra buttons for all sorts of "easy access" functionality. Many of them are even programmable - so you can assigne the functions you want to them.

Buying another keyboard would be a lot cheaper for you...

Cheers,
Tim.

Tim, you are right. If i can not find the right driver, i can always re-install Win98se or ME, but i like win2k.

Tim, you are correct about buying a new monitor. I love the monitor and I can due with out the Easy Access Button. I'm pretty sure their is a driver for win2k, i just can not find it.

Proprietary PCs like compaq don't have lots of options to work around when replacing parts. You have to buy replacement parts from them. I don't think you can find the W2K driver anywhere else other than their site. Well if those easy access button are important to you, a new monitor with those capabilities will resolve your problem. Make sure the new one will be compatible with your pc. I recommend to replace it with the same brand.

They are important to me, since I like everything to work correctly. If I can find the manufacture of the Compaq Presario FX700 Monitor, I'm willing to buy another. There is no reference on the Compaq database.
