I have bought an Asus VG248QE.

I have the following computer configuration:

Monitor: ASUS VG248QE
Connection between monitor and computer: dual link dvi cabel.

Corsair 200R
Corsair CX500
Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
Processor - AMD FX-6350 Hexacore (3,9 GHz)
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz (24GB)
AMD Radeon R9 270X (2GB GDDR5)
Samsung 840 EVO SSD (120GB)
Western Digital Red WD30EFRX
Windows 7 Enterprice 64 bit

My device manager in windows regognizes the graphics card AMD Radeon R9 and says that it is working. I have installed the latest driver from AMD website.

I have also installed the latest invidia driver from ASUS website for the product VG248QE.

When i try to install the NVIDIA display driver that is included on a CD i get the message "NVIDIA Installer cannot continue.
The graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware."
I have also tried to download the newest version of the invida display driver from asus ( and then i get the same compatibility failure message.

The error i get indicate that the invidia installer cannot see the AMD Radeon graphics card i think or is the AMD Radoen simply not compatible.
How am i to go about to get the invidia installer to work?

Nvidia drivers are for Nvidia video cards, which you do not have. There's no need to install anything from Nvidia.

All you need to do is:
Right click desktop > Screen Resolution > Select the VG248QE > Advanced Settings > select Monitor tab > change refresh rate to 144hz.

Um the only thing I saw on that website that was related to nvida was an updated 3D driver which is only Nvida card so I hope your not trying to install that.
