Windows 7: Asus VE278Q monitor

Asus VE278Q monitor

Could use some help.

I have spent hours looking for drivers for this monitor on the Asus site with absolutely no luck.
I have check many other sites with no luck also.
All the Asus site shows are drivers for Windows 8 but not Windows 7.

Malwarebytes blocks many of the non Asus sites.
If I can I would like to have drivers with out installing Java first.

Thanks for looking. I tried that and the best I can tell that download is not a driver.
Tried it and it's not compatible with my system.

As far as I can work out it should be plug 'n play. Brink seems to report that it can depend upon what cables/ connectors are used.

Thanks Chris.

I took a look and download the tool suggested in Brinks post.
It tell me to send money or no dice.

It's a little difficult to remove the garbage that came with the probram, but I'm getting good at being a garbage specialist.

Obviously the monitor runs well with Windows 7 drivers, plug and play but I was hoping I could find a designated driver from Asus.

I have used Display port and now I'm using HDMI but with Windows drivers I can't tell the difference.

Well I can't find any drivers for it. All I can find is this:

Code:
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/LCD%20Monitors/ASUS_VK278_Windows_8_WHQL.zip
That's not a driver. It's "Microsoft Certification" that Brink mentioned. I don't actually know what that means!

I get this from the setup file:

I`ve never worried about any driver for the monitor, if there was something out there, windows update usually found it.

Are you have an issue Jack ?

No I really don't have a problem using the generic Windows 7 driver.
I was just wanting to see if I could find a Asus driver and give it a try.

I picked up a bunch of PUP's looking for the driver. Malwarebytes took care of them in a short time.
No I didn't knowingly giver permission for any of the PUP's, they just sneaked in.

Thank you all for looking.

@Callendar
That setup file is more then just a Windows Certification file. It's installing a color profile (a .icm file) for an ASUS monitor. A Windows cert file is provided so that driver is digitally signed. Otherwise Windows would block installation.

That said, I don't know how much difference the generic vs. specific color profile makes

@Layback Bear
Right click on the Monitor in Device Manager->Properties. Select Details tab. Use the pull down menu to report both the Hardware Ids and the Compatible Ids for that device. You should be able to copy/paste both back into next both

/* EDIT */
footnote: A "Windows Certification" file is a .cat file. It contains the digital signature for a driver so Windows can verify the driver files are approved and legit

The .cat file is also referred to as a "catalogue" file as it may contain multiple signatures - each one for a different driver
