Hello experts,

I just got a new monitor. I want to use it for my laptop. When I connect the two and do Fn F7 to bring up my laptop screen into the monitor nothing happens... I figure I am missing the monitor's drives.

Well, I downloaded and got three files: h233h security catalog, h233h icc profile, and a setup information file... content below....

my question is: where do I put these files? or how do I install?

thanks

regards,
