For Monitor Driver just go to the Device Manager then click on update Driver and Window 10 will download and install Driver Automatically, incase if this don't work try the following method:
Remove Unused Devices:>
1. Open a Command Prompt by going to Start>Run and typing "cmd" (without quotes). Once the Command Prompt is open, type the following lines, pressing return after each:
2. In the Device Manager window that opens, go to the View menu and select 'Show Hidden Devices' - this is very important if you want to see the unused devices. Now expand each of your devices and look through all the sub-components listed. You will see that some of the devices are shown in a lighter grey color.
3. For the purposes of this guide, what we need to look for are entries under the Monitor and Display Adapter device categories. Under Monitor there should be at least one darker monitor entry for each monitor on your system. If there are any greyed out entries, you can remove them by right-clicking on the entry and selecting 'Uninstall'. Do this for all greyed out entries under the Monitor device. Restart the Computer.
Now try to update the Monitor Driver
Overall Review: It's just fantastic. The size, the shape, the good support, the pannel itself. Really an amazing monitor. The side menu buttons are also comfortable to nagivate. Really enjoy it.
Pros: Very good clarity.
No problems. Purchased on 4/1/18
Curve is a benefit
Pixel count is a benefit
Number of inputs is a good, wish it had VGA or DVI also
I was going to buy two 22" monitors but this is WAY better. I was very concerned this was going to be a costly mistake but I will never go back to two monitors again.
I took off the stand and have it attached to an arm with the VESA mount. It floats off my desk - it works really well with this setup and it looks really cool.
I mostly use this this for productivity. I have not used it for gaming - yet.
When you watch movies on this it will have black bars on the top and sides. which is fine for me. Looks good even when sending DVD content to it from Kodi.
Cons: I can no longer view POST on my 10 year old PC - Gigabyte motherboard. I'm connecting the DP of the monitor to the DVI on my PC. This is frustrating but I should upgrade my machine. I can't hold the monitor responsible for me being too lazy to build a new machine.
The joy stick style navigation button is hard to get used to, even after 10 months.
If it had a VGA or DVI I could view POST
