Do I need to install a driver for my monitor? 

ViewSonic plug and play monitors do not require a proprietary Windows 10 driver to be installed.  

Instead, Windows 10 operating system will automatically read the EDID information stored in the monitor and install Generic PNP Monitor drivers to enable its full resolution capabilities. 


Windows 10 will only show reference to "Generic PnP Monitor" under monitor tab and under device manager." 



To Manually Update the driver: Please do the following:  


  1. 1. Right-click on the Windows icon in the taskbar.  

  1. 2. Select Device Manager. 

  1. 3. Double left-click on Monitors. 

  1. 4. Right-click "Generic PnP Monitor"

  1. 5. Select Update Driver. 

  1. 6. Select "Search automatically for updated driver software" 




If you’re still unable to get the display listed or not getting all the features that are supported with the Windows PnP driver, you can download the driver from our website:


If you’re unable to get your monitor to work with your computer, check the following:
