Monitor M782p driver update install

I downloaded the latest monitor M782p driver to install for a Dimension 4550. Then I followed the installation readme.txt instructions using the Hardware Update Wizard, browing to the location "C:\Dell\Drivers\R53494" where it was found. However, after searching, it prompted me that a better driver was not found and click Finish to exit. The existing Microsoft driver was dated 6/6/2001 while the Dell driver was dated May of 2002.

Does this seem logical to not use the later driver file date?

Re: Monitor M782p driver update install

Bobsharon,

Don't use the wizard.

* Download the driver and unzip it to C:\Monitor
* Click Start- Control Panel- System
* Click the Hardware tab and the Device Manager button
* Double-click the Monitors
* Double-click the Monitor listed
* Click the Driver tab
* Click Update Driver
* Click Install from a list or specific location
* Click Next
* Click "Have Disk"
* Insert a check to "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install"
* Click Next
* Click Browse
* Navigate to the unzipped monitor driver location (C:\Monitor)
* Click the *.inf file
* Click Open
* Click OK
* Click Next
* Click Finish
* Click Start- Turn Off Computer- Restart

Re: Monitor M782p driver update install

I have successfully installed the driver that was downloaded and restarted the computer.  However, it took 3 attempts because the sequence of steps you provided were not usable from the point "Have Disk" was indicated since it did not appear there.  Also, the step "click the *.inf file" was not used.  It appears to have extracted the correct file within the "Monitor" folder (M782p.inf) since it works.

Thanks for your assistance.
