Issues between Samsung 206BW monitors, Asus EAH5870, and Windows 7

My main issue here is my samsung flat-panel monitors will not let me configure them. I cannot change the settings with the buttons on the monitor. For brightness, contrast and other settings it says "NOT AVAILABLE".

On my old XP machine I use to configure the monitors with Magic Tune. It is software that came with the monitor which allows me to adjust the settings from a GUI in windows.

Now I am using Windows 7 and I've tried to install a variety of different versions of magic tune. Pretty much tried them all and with all different compatibility settings. I can't seem to get it to work no matter what I try.

There are people on forums that have got MagicTune working with Windows 7. And there are just as many people that have had no luck.

I tried to install a program called Dtuner. It can't detect my monitors. This leads me to believe it is my video card that might be causing trouble.

So is there anyway I can have the control of my monitor settings back? Are there any other software programs you can recommend that can change my monitor's settings?

Does windows recognize your monitor properly or is it listed as a plug and play monitor?
