Is there nothing on their website relating to drivers for that external monitor.

Other option if windows update is set to get updates for windows and other products from microsoft update there may be an updated driver it may find for your monitor.

The catalyst control centre is normally installed when you download the ati driver for your card from their website if you have not got a driver from their website i suggest you download the driver and allow the catalyst control centre and manager be installed as well.

If you have installed a driver from windows update it may not contain the relevant files for ccc.
