Just got the Samsung SA300b 24 inch LED

Got my new Samsung SA300b 24 inch LED monitor at Walmart for $229. Newegg had it for the same price plus shipping so I got it last night at Walmart and It's very nice. It tilts, although I don't use that much. The only thing is that the drivers didn't install for some reason on my new Windows 7 machine. I found the drivers somewhere on the web, but those didn't install either.

Do I really need "monitor drivers" ?? I've never really installed them on any of my monitors in the past and this one looks good and everything. What do they do anyways? Doesn't the graphics card handle that stuff?

If someone could help me get them installed it'd be nice.

THanks :)

  1. No, you don't need monitor drivers - that is why Samsung started sending out broken drivers (and my Asus 24 inch LED does not come with any drivers at all).
  2. I don't see anything on the Samsung SA300b that would require drivers. I would guess that you'll be fine. I would contact Samsung support to find out what the deal is with the driver issue though.

    Drivers are generally needed for pivoting, webcam or USB hub (maybe).
  3. Here is something you can try. Are you on Windows 7? If you are, right click the desktop and select Screen Resolution. On that page, does it say something like 'Generic' monitor or does it give the actual model #. My Asus (without drivers) shows up as model #, so Windows fully recognizes it and no driver is needed. What does your Samsung show up as?

    it shows up as "SA300/SA350".

    Then I think you are all set. The Monitor is giving its correct model # and specs to Windows and Windows recognizes it. This is the same info that would have been in the drivers essentially.
