How do I update a driver?

My monitor needs a new driver but when I download the driver I get a bunch of files I don't know what to do with.

I get a .cab file, which opens up and makes a folder with the name of the driver.

Another folder inside that says inf icm at the end of the driver name.

Inside it are two files that say vist_32 and vist_64

Inside THOSE are two files, one is an "ICC profile" and the other some "setup information" file which is mostly gibberish and provides not setup information to me, the human.

Inside the other big folder are two files called "driver 0000" and "driver 0001" both of which contain some kind of security log.


What exactly do I do with this?

    Oh and I tried pointing at it in my device manager but i click and click and click and it won't let me say "Okay" when the folder is selected and I don't know how else to point it at the file.

    Autosearch for updates does nothing.

    Try right click-clicking on the 'setup information' file and select Install or something.

    Also, it doesn't look like it's a monitor driver, just a color profile. Monitors don't usually use drivers.

    Yeah, monitors don't really have drivers. Your video card might need new drivers though.
