How to change display model in Windows 7

I have just installed a new computer with Windows 7 Professional.  When the system loaded it selected Generic Non_PnP Monitor.  I have older NEC Multisync 1810X monitor.  I have downloaded driver information from NEC for monitor.  However when I go to monitor in Device Manager all I am able to do is to update the EXISTING entry for the Generic monitor;.

Should I uninstall the generic driver?

There is no Windows 7 driver for that model.  If you would still like to try to install a previous version that you have downloaded, follow this tutorial:

You need to point the Update Driver Wizard to the .inf file that you downloaded from the NEC website.

NEC doesn't make any drivers for Windows 7 on that model, unfortunately. Luckily, the Generic PnP Monitor driver will do everything you need. Manufacturer drivers for monitors don't really tend to do anything more than the generic drivers do.
