Normally you don't need a driver for a monitor.

I might add that if you do need a driver it would be best to let people know the intended operating system.

Not all monitors have drivers. If its not on the site, then there's nothing

here (http://www.nodevice.com/driver/VG510s/get36484.html) - but no ide how legit they are, the site says 1.32MB - but the download file is actually 13.5MB. Another place (http://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=418080457088034c5b791adddd5) says 2.44MB -- so who knows.

Viewsonic dont even appear to have them.

The default MS ones are fine.

Sounds a bit dodgy if its 13 mb ! Just for a monitor

Just download it, and looked inside the zip file, theres two - Contents (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Zip_File1274331944.jpg) - looks like the top ones the correct size. Not that I actually have ever used Viewsonic Drivers, the default ones always work fine.

Specific hardware drivers yes, generic drivers like mice, KBs, optical drives and monitors - you don't need it. Windows does it just fine. Ever heard of anyone having a monitor driver issue? No.

Monitors don't have drivers.

At most they have information files detailing the maximum resolution etc supported so Windows knows what it can and can't do, and maybe a colour profile.

I understand your concern with Windows being stupid, but even installing said files won't make the monitor run any more "smoothly"
