Installing monitor driver on Windows 7

This question is not answered

I am trying to install a driver on a Dell computer running a Dell monitor on Windows 7.  The instructions state that after downloading and extracting the files I should hit the start button and click Run.  I do not see the run button on Windows 7.  How do I get the installation to launch?  Thanks

  • I figured out how to customize the start button to add the run function to the start menu on Windows 7, however, I still cannot get the driver to launch.  Any suggestions?

  • * Download the monitor driver to your desktop
    * Doubleclick the downloaded file from your desktop
    * Unzip the driver into its own folder on the desktop
    * Open the Device Manager
    * Click the icon left of Monitors
    * Double click the monitor listed
    * Click the Driver tab
    * Click the Update Driver button
    * Click No, not at this time
    * Click Next
    * Dot Install from a list or specific location
    * Click Next
    * Click Don't search. I will choose the driver to install
    * Click Next
    * Click Have Disk
    * Click Browse and navigate to the folder on your desktop that has the unzipped monitor inf file
    * Click the monitor inf file
    * Click Open
    * Click OK
    * Click Next
    * Click Finish
