    Do I need to install a driver for my Asus ROG gaming monitor?

    I just purchased the ASUS ROG Swift PG278QR 27” 1440p 1ms 165Hz gaming monitor.

    I set it up with the RTX 2080 and Gsync using Nvidia Control Panel. It seems to be running fine. However, is there a driver I need to download and install for the actual monitor? I downloaded and installed the latest graphics card driver from Nvidia. Just want to make sure I'm setting everything up correctly.

    I've never manually installed any drivers for any of my three Asus monitors. I tend to leave Windows 10 to manage what it needs without you doing it manually.
    Hell, the CD/DVD thing is still in the shipping box.

    No, all ASUS monitors are plug and play.

    Faccing driver issue.

    Helpful thread. Actually I am using AOC Q2778VQE gaming monitor for the last 10 months but I am facing the issue. I recently install Call of duty lastest version but I am getting an error. I am a bit confused in recognizing that its a graphic card issue or AOC Q2778VQE driver issue. Is there anyone who are facing sme issue. Any help is appreciable.
