Windows 7: dual monitor, one listed as generic pnp?

dual monitor, one listed as generic pnp?

I'm wondering if I need to fix/do anything.

I have the latest Huey Pro 1.5.1 to calibrate my dual samsung monitors. I saved two profiles, one for each but have no idea where they are stored, and search doesn't find them. Only one profile shows up in the list.

I have 2 samsung monitors, different models.

One installed correctly: SyncMaster 2494SW(digital) but that's not my main monitor and I can't find the profile for that one.

The other monitor is a syncmaster 2493HM and it is using the HDMI connection (in case that matters) and is my primary monitor. Control panel says it's a syncmaster but no model. Device manager says it's a generic pnp monitor.

I guess since I do my photo editing on the one I have a profile for, I can just assign that profile to both monitors (even tho it's not quite right and the huey should allow me to profile seperately) and live with it. But is there anything I should do to correct the pnp listing so it reads what it really is?

Install the driver for it, and it should recognize it in Device Manager. Here is your driver for the 2493HM. The .exe, under Downloads-Driver.

Support for 2493HM SAMSUNG

Don't see any 2494SW. There is one for the 2494HM though. Sure it has SW at the end?

Monitor is listed as generic, can't change resolution.
I'm pretty sure the reason I can't change the resolution on my monitor is because it is listed as Generic PnP in Device Manager. Although in Control Panel-->Display the model number is listed. It's a seven year old monitor. Model Sony SDM-HS73. Should I attempt to install a driver? Will that...
