I Can't Get Monsetup.exe to Run...Trying to install a Samsung Monitor

I just reformatted my hard drive (Windows ME).   I'm now attempting to install a LCD Monitor with the software that came with the monitor.  When I attempt to run monsetup.exe I get an error messeage:

Monsetup has caused an error in DIRAPI.DLL.
Monsetup will now close              
                                                                Close
If you continue to experience problems,
Try restarting your computer


So I restart my computer, and I get the same thing.  Any ideas...?  I can only view the monitor in 640X480 with 16 Colors at this point.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

L.G.

You might not need to run monsetup.

Have you tried changing the resolution?  Here is how to do it:
1.) Right click on the desktop screen.
2.) Choose "Properties"
3.) Click the "Settings" tab
4.) Below the middle of the window, you should see "Screen Resolution"
5.) Move the pointer to the right to increase resolution
6.) Click OK or Apply to test it out

There are other settings you can try too.  

Good luck.

Not exactly the same error but its the same dll causing the issue.

It sounds like your Video Driver isn't installed or working correctly. The monitor driver wont do anything if your Video Drivers arn't in and working. What Vid card do you have?

Download and install Everest Home Edition and it will scan you computer and tell you which card you have installed.  Look under the "Video" tab once you install it.

I would just take the case off and look at the sticker or if there is no sticker it should be written somewhere on the card what it is. Just post it on here. If it's onboard then find the model of the motherboard and post that.
