Windows 7: Wrong driver for my LG monitor ~ windows default

Wrong driver for my LG monitor ~ windows default

Dear friend,

I am having some problems getting the correct driver for my LG Flatron W2243S monitor. I keep getting the windows php default monitor driver 6.1.7600.16385 (C\windows\system32\drivers\monitor.sys) instead of the correct LG driver (somewhere in my programme files). I know this to be the correct driver as I have it running for another monitor on the same PCIe card.

Basically my set-up is one PCIe ATI Radeon HD3850 two montors: LG Flatron W2243S (wrong resolution) and W1942T (correct resolution). I also run a PCI ATI HD4500 with a HPw1907 monitor with no problems.
OS: Windows 7 *32MB. Quad Core Q8200 with 4GB RAM. Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L motherboard.

Thank you for any help?

Like I say, I think that I just need to get the correct driver for this screen and disable the Win7 default.

Kind regards

have you tried downloading the driver to a space you can find it easily such as the desktop and installing it instead of trying to install from an update?
