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?

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.

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:http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ht/update-drivers-windows-7.htm.

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