Pertelian X2040 LCD is already supported.  But, it's not supported as part of the POS VFD LCD module, but it has a separate, dedicated module named Pertelian ;)

Where is this separate Pertelian module or not?

Please specify the use of the Pertelian VFD module in aida64

You can enable it on the AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / Pertelian page.

Thank you very much for the administrator of the answer but I still did not do a good job ~ ~ I is USB conversion of COM data transmission in the lcd_smartie can be used as normal but POS interface using aida64 Aida POS init OK VFD but that did not respond to a solution for the administrator590322f3826d8_360-2382509.jpg.80787bcc3ef7eb59442fcaee9f08aa6b.jpg

If you have a Pertelian device, do not use the POS VFD module: even if it says "Init OK", it won't work.  Use the Pertelian module.

This VFD is not a pertelian device he is a PL2303 chip USB conversion COM port DIY VFD devices currently he can only display content through the lcd_smartie software

Can you give a copy of Pertelian device

Thank you very much, although the manager did not decide to return a change or thank you very much for the administrator's patience ^_^O(∩_∩)O哈哈~

Maybe you've minunderstood my posts, so let me clarify. If you choose the POS VFD module, it won't work with your LCD, since it is designed for POS VFD displays.  If you select the Pertelian module, it won't work, because it was designed for the original Pertelian X2040 LCD device, using FTD2xx USB bridge chip.  You on the other hand seem to have a 3rd party, custom-made LCD device that uses a PL2303 USB bridge chip.  It is not a Pertelian device, it just uses the Pertelian command protocol. The current Pertelian module of AIDA64 will not work with your device simply because it expects to have a FTD2xx USB bridge chip, and it doesn't support RS232 protocol directly.  So you cannot select the COM port to use, but it will default to using the FTD2xx API instead.

However, in order to make AIDA64 compatible with your device, we've implemented support for RS232-connected Pertelian-compatible LCD devices in the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme available at:

https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

If you go to the previously mentioned Pertelian page of the Preferences, you will see that now you can select the COM port as well as the LCD type (resolution). Let me know how it works with your device.

      Hey Aida Team,
      i have some issues with this Adafruit LCD wich is recomended. On the two Pictures you can see what aida should do and what can i see on the Display. The First line is completely erased and the screen is flickering. The Adafruit Backpack is set to 20x4 LCD. When the Display is updating you can see the right setting for a millisecond.
      But if i change the LCD Setting in AIDA to 16x2, and leave the Backpack in 20x4 mode,  the Screen isn flickering and the first line is there. I think you got a little problem with the 20x4 Driver. I have Searched for the code but i cant find it, to edit it if i found the failure. 
       
      Please give me response for this BUG. I have extra ordert this overpriced 50€ LCD for it. 
      Greetings Daniel from Germany

      We've added support for RoboPeak RPUSBDisp color graphical USB-connected LCD display.

      You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / RoboPeak. Currently there is no Windows driver made specifically for RoboPeak displays.  But there's a workaround: you can use the AlphaCool LCD driver (Version 2.1).  The driver installation has to be forced due to the USB device ID mismatch (between AlphaCool and RoboPeak displays).
      The driver installation works as:
      Open Device Manager --> Other devices --> double-click on rp-usbdisp --> Update Driver button --> Browse my computer for driver software --> Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer --> Show All Devices --> Next button --> Have Disk button --> Browse button --> select acusbdisplay.inf file from the AlphaCool LCD driver folder --> Next button --> press Yes button on the Update Driver Warning message box.

      You can order a RoboPeak display from DFRobot at:
      https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1062.html#.UqfXHfSnoqX
      You can find the new AIDA64 beta update at:
      https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta
      Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64.

      We've added support for several Matrix Orbital USB character based and monochrome graphical LCD displays, including LK, MX, PK, VK, GLK, GLT, GX Typhoon, and their drive-bay and external variants as well.
      You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD. The only thing needed to enable this feature is having the appropriate Matrix Orbital USB LCD drivers installed, and the LCD to be connected to a USB port. You can verify if your device is supported by AIDA64 by finding the device on the Devices / USB Devices page in AIDA64, and checking its Device ID. It should be one of the following IDs:
      0403-FA01
      0403-FA02
      0403-FA03
      0403-FA04
      0403-FA05
      1B3D-011F
      1B3D-0120
      1B3D-0121
      1B3D-0123
      1B3D-0125
      1B3D-0127
      1B3D-012C
      1B3D-0134
      1B3D-013E
      1B3D-013F
      1B3D-0140
      1B3D-0141
      1B3D-0155
      1B3D-0156
      1B3D-0157
      1B3D-0158
      1B3D-015E
      1B3D-0161
      1B3D-016A
      1B3D-016B
      1B3D-016C
      1B3D-0176
      1B3D-017B
      1B3D-01F0
      1B3D-01F1

      Due to their interface bottleneck BGK, EGLK, GLK and GLT displays perform display updates quite slowly, so visual discrepancies may be experienced when using the GLK (graphics) protocol on these displays. It is possible to use the LK (character based) protocol on GLK displays as well, which will work much faster. In order to switch between the GLK and LK protocols, you need to first disable the GLK protocol (in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD), and then enable the LK protocol on the same page. Ignore the error, and restart AIDA64 to apply the switch.

      Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64. BTW, Abacom, AlphaCool, Digital Devices, LCD2USB, Mad Catz Venom, and SDC Megtron LCDs are also supported now by the latest AIDA64 beta.

      We've added support for the built-in 160x32 pixel monochrome LCD screen of EVGA Z10 gaming keyboard.  You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / EVGA.
      [/
      Currently AIDA64 communicates with the LCD directly, using USB HID interface.  It collides with EVGA's own software (EVGA Unleash), so it's recommended to close that software before enabling EVGA Z10 support in AIDA64.  EVGA will soon develop a proper SDK/API for their keyboard, much like the LCD API of Logitech gaming keyboards, so that multiple software can put information on the LCD the same time, without collisions.

      Hello. 
      Is it possible to see from the AIDA file what type of LCD is connected? For example to tell if its an OLED or IPS panel.
