Help with new monitor setup - LG IPS236V

Hello,

I just purchased a new monitor - LG IPS236V. The CD that comes with it doesn't installs any .icm or .inf or .cat files, so windows treats it as a generic monitor and I'm unable to calibrate colors.

In LG Hong Kong site I've found the files above.

Where should I place the files (Win 7 64)?

Thanks for your help,
.

Put the files in a folder on desktop or anywhere, go into device manager, find your monitor and double click it. Now go to the driver tab, click update driver then browse and browse to that folder on your desktop, click ok and Windows should now know what your monitor is.

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
