    I just read this Graphics card is made by NVIDIA specifically for Dell Computers. I missed the part before were you said the monitor driver was updated for Windows 7, which might be o.k. for Windows 10, but i am not sure and again can not see the driver messing with a piece of hardware's settings as those settings should come on screen even with or without a driver. Again it can just be a monitor issue as seen in that Dell Support forum.

    If you are talking about the built in menu buttons on the monitor, as far as I know, no drivers are needed to use those. Those functions are built into the monitor. I have never had to install any utilities to adjust the brightness and contrast on any monitor I own when using the buttons on the monitor itself. That's all done via the hardware/firmware in the monitor.

    The "driver" isn't really a driver in the conventional sense. Not the ones I've seen. It's just an .inf file that specifies the modes that monitor supports. Most of the time you can't install them like a normal driver either. You do it through Device Manager. Unless it's a USB monitor, etc. Those do require special drivers to work through USB.

    Believe that is what it has been, Alphanumeric. I told the thread starter the driver would not control that and came across a similar issue from Dell on that model with Brightness and Contrast having issues, this monitor is from 2003. Some monitor drivers have color profiles to i believe. My ASUS monitor has no drivers just a software.

    Yeah, I think the more expensive/high quality monitors will have color profiles on the disk that comes with them. You want stuff like that if you work with Photoshop etc. All that was on the disk that came with my monitors was the owners manual/setup instructions, etc.

    All i received was box, styrofoam and cables.

    Get the rest here, only one utility.
