Update Driver Warning
The driver you have chosen was not written specifically for the selected hardware and may not work correctly. Installing this driver is not recommended. Are you sure you want to install this driver?

WARNING: Manually upgrading a monitor driver with an incorrect driver may cause your monitor to become unusable, exhibit reduced functionality, and can damage your monitor.
