Drivers specifically for the monitor are not needed to use the display. It should work fine right out of the box. If you are not seeing anything on the display, ensure that the power is plugged in and the connection from the monitor to your computer is inserted properly on both ends.

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

Please do not adjust RGB unless you know what you are doing.
For critical color work, you will need to use a photospectrometer and calibration software to analyze what your monitor is spitting out.
There are a million obvious reasons you should not trust your eye making arbitrary RGB adjustments off the hip.
