I have a Velocity dual 2.8 mhtz CPU with 2 gigs of ram running on a Windows 32 bit OS.(Vista Home Premium) This is my question: I want to install a refurb 23" Samsung wide-screen monitor to replace my older Sony 19" 4X3 proportion monitor. I have gotten the drivers_installation package and the Manual from The Samsung website. The problem I need help with is how to set this up correctly since it is a little different than the installation of the monitor a part of the assembly of a new system rather than replacing one monitor for another in an already up and running computer system.

What I am not sure of is if I should uninstall (Via my device manager) the Sony monitor which is currently installed on my computer. If so what will i see when I plug in my new monitor in the mean time between plugging it in and going thru the set-up process. This is where my confusion comes into play. How am I to find and install my drivers and the set-up package even though I know I have them currently on my desktop?

I hope I have given you enough information and it is clear enough so that you know what I am trying to express. Please help and let me know if you need more information.

Sincerely, zbuckone

Hi

So do you need help with the assembly or the software aspect of it.

All you need to do is assemble it just like in in a box. Refurbish only means that it was minor defects and its certified to work.

After you assemble it unplug your Old-Sony Monitor VGA cable and Power cable from it. Remove your old Sony monitor set up your new monitor up in its place. Reconnect your VGA and Power cables. When you turn it on It should automatically configure your new monitor

If you new monitor need special drivers install the driver after you computer recognize your new monitor. Like special buttons on it than you have to installed Samsung Drivers

Windows Vista/Window 7 can see new hardware and installed the drivers automatically.

coxchris, Thanks so very much for your reply concerning how to install my new monitor. I was worried about having a blank screen without any new drivers installed but now I understand the "computer Gods" take over and auto-install new drivers. That sure clears up my angst over making that last little connection. I don't know what I would do without people like you and BleepingComputer.com.
Thanks again, zbuckone :thumbsup:
