Installing driver for E176FP Monitor

I recently had a power cut which caused my screen to display everything grey, as being
pink. So i go over to download the drivers, its in a zip file, which is okay,. Download finishes, and whats in the folder? 3 files, that dont do anything, no .exe file just .icm etc. What am i supposed to do with these? I dunno if its my video card that needs sorting out or if i need a new monitor, any ideas on why it doesnt containt the driver?
regards,
mike.

Thanks for replying, but it turns out i already have this driver installed, which means it must be my monitor that has been effected.

Any ideas on what to do next?

ItsMikeh,

* Turn off both your PC and monitor
* Disconnect the monitor from the PC (both the white DVI and the blue VGA)
* Turn the monitor on
* The floating Dell red/green/blue/white dialog box should appear on a black background

If the issue is not present in the STFC (Self-Test Feature Check), the issue is with either the video card driver or the video card itself. If it is present, the monitor is faulty.
