Some users are getting an error with HP My Display Software. We have seen some of them complaining about the “HP My Display Has Stopped Working” error in forums.
If you are one of them, we have tried to compile several useful troubleshooting methods and fixes to help you fix this error.
What is HP My Display?
HP My Display is a utility tool that allows users to calibrate HP monitors. Monitor performance can be affected by several factors, including room lighting, graphics card and the computer itself. It is important to calibrate the monitor to accurately process video and images. This ensures that the colors of the images on the screen are close to each other or exactly the same as the printed images.
The app guides the user through the entire calibration process of the monitor, providing a step-by-step guide. Once installed, the program adds an icon to the taskbar. You can also start the program by right-clicking on an empty space on the desktop and selecting the program from the menu that appears.
HP My Display offers two calibration modes – Wizard and OSD (On-Screen-Display). The assistant mode provides the user with the calibration steps, and the OSD menu allows the user to make changes without performing all the steps. For more accurate calibration, we recommend using the setup wizard.

Perform a System Restore
Did you install a Windows update before this error happened? If you think your HP My Display app malfunctioned after some Windows Update, then you can try using the System Restore tool to get back to the previous working version of your PC.
- Open the System Restore tool by typing System Restore in the search box.
- Click System Restore. Windows usually creates a restore point before upgrading, so it should display it in the list of restore points.
- If you click Next, you will see a list of restore points, select the one you had before the update.
- It will now ask you to confirm if you really want to reset Windows to its previous state. Please note that this is a very important step and should not be interrupted under any circumstances, such as in the event of a power failure. Create a plan to avoid bricking your PC.
