OtheHill, Thank you

However i am aware of the official site's provided drivers as well as other sites such as

However i was hoping for a disc image of the cd that came with the product...

By the way do you know why the previously mentioned web sited provide different driver files? As i found that the driver posted over driverscollection is a newer file yet unsigned as for the official vs website posts an older driver yet signed!

Thank you

All those driver download sites have files uploaded by users. They may or may not work. Sometimes updated drivers for hardware are written but not certified. This can be because the OS is no longer being supported or because the author doesn't want to bother with certification by Microsoft.

You have to remember, once a product is sold the profit has been made. When the product will no longer work in the OS of choice you need to replace it, which means new profits.

Some vendors are better than other with support for legacy products.

I really don't know what the wizard could do that the driver software can't do.

Have you tried emailing Viewsonic about that?

I'll give you a tip about software disks.

I always burn a copy of any software when i first get it. I then use the copy to install the software. That way I know both copies work. I then store away the original and use the copy for any future installs.

That is almost the same thing i do...

I always keep a disc image and a physical copy of important hardware discs such as motherboard's cds.

However mine came with no disc however on the viewsonic's website product's page it lists a disc in the product's check list.

This is not viewsonic's fault however as i am sure it was the re-seller's fault.

I am just worried that the bundled disc would have a more specific driver for my VX2240w LCD Display instead of what i suspect it to be a standard generic driver that is provided by the previously mentioned websites.

Normally i would not care, However this is my first ever LCD display and i want everything to be correct as it can be when i attach it to my new upgraded system. You see i have no prior LCD experience.

By the way would it matter which driver i setup first (GPU or LCD Display driver/inf/profile) ?

Thank you

All you normally need is the GPU drivers. You need to install them first.

You don't even need any installed drivers for your LCD display.

The drivers just tell Windows what the capabilities are so Windows won't allow you to apply settings that are not within the range of the display.

LCD monitors are different than CRT in that they are best viewed in their native resolution. That is usually the number that is advertised with the display. Additionally, LCD displays are rock solid at 60Hz. There is no reason to run them any higher. There is no flicker with an LCD display.

If your Viewsonic is a wide screen then the native resolution is probably 1680 x 1050.

Be sure to load the latest drivers for your graphics card/chip.
