VMWare ESXi 5.5 Win7 VM - how to change monitor driver?

On a ESXi server, Win7 virtual machine, I need to update the monitor driver to match the display we're using via rdp.  The current generic one only goes up to 1600x1200 and we want 1900x1080 if possible.  We have the mfg. monitor driver files however I just can't get them to install on the virtual machine.

Thanks

You need to add video memory to virtual machine (a bit more than 8MB is single Full-HD frame, no harm in setting 128MB) and use video driver from vmware tools, not from windows.
