Windows 7: Samsung Monitor Driver

Samsung Monitor Driver

I've had an ongoing problem with this for some time now. You can see here that my Device Manager tells me that I'm missing a video controller, and also in that post is my inability to watch full screen videos online. Here, I talk about the problems I've had with my display driver crashing.

Now, yesterday I downloaded Photoshop, and as it opened, a window popped up saying that my "monitor Profile" is defective and needs to be calibrated (See first attachment). If I choose to Ignore Profile, I can use Photoshop as usual, but everything I export has an irremovable yellow tinge. If I choose to Use Anyway, there is no white in Photoshop's color pallet, only the same yellowish color.

This got me thinking for the first time that my monitor was the cause of my problems, so I searched online for Samsung 2243swx drivers. On their webpage, they had up for download only one driver, which is for a VGA graphics card (See second attachment). I've been running a PCI graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS), and I was wondering if this could be the problem.

Would you say I ought to buy a VGA graphics card?

Well you need to install a monitor driver if available, so your monitor will be recognized and be able to have it's native resolution used. Otherwise it will just be reported as standard VGA. I would install the driver in compatibility mode. Download the driver>click properties>check box Vista and install. After it is installed your monitor should show up as the monitor you've listed above. Then just install the correct driver for your video card. Nvidia still reccomends the 195.62 for your card http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_wi...5.62_whql.html Fabe

Yes, but the webpage for the monitor driver says it only works for VGA graphics cards. I have a PCI. I don't quite get what you're saying.

You have a PCI card with a VGA output. Some PCI cards even have a digital output. Definition of VGA define:Vga - Google Search VGA has become know as a standrad analog output. It doesn't say VGA Grahics card it says VGA Grahpic. Install the driver for your LCD you'll be OK. Fabe

I just downloaded the driver and it made no difference. I still can't watch fullscreen videos and Photoshop still won't work.

Also, a few minutes after downloading, my computer froze up and automatically restarted.

Go to device manager>right click on the dispay controller>properties>details tab>drop down menu> hardware id. copy and paste the code. Someone can find the driver you need for that device. Thanks Fabe
