If the issue persists, your display driver may not be installed.

To see if your display driver is installed, please use the following instructions:

1. Enter the Device Manager by right-clicking on the "Start" menu and selecting "Device Manager".


2. In the Device Manager, go to the "Monitors" drop-down. The number of "Generic PnP Monitor" devices under this section should be equal to the number of MiMo devices plugged in. If you do not see the correct number of MiMo devices, try installing the MiMo driver.


To install the MiMo Driver, please use the following instructions:

1. Navigate to https://www.mimomonitors.com/pages/drivers. This is where you can download all drivers for your MiMo products. Select the appropriate driver based on the model of your signature pad and the operating system of the workstation. Then, you should be redirected to https://www.displaylink.com to find the correct driver.
