Recently I installed Windows 8 in my desktop. It's actually 1440*900 monitor. The motherboard manufacturer didn't provided Windows 8 drivers yet. I guess, they wont as it's 2008 model. I have drivers for 7 which gave me correct resolution. But Windows 8 don't comes with 1440*900 driver for my monitor. Is there any way I can suppress the "Best driver installed bla bla" and use the drivers of Windows 7?
Don't let Windows search for driver. Select that you want to pick the driver from a disk.

Display, Resolution, Graphics drivers mainly based on motherboard drivers. Since I have Intel G33/G31 Motherboard, I can't find the drivers from the official site. But however DownloadAtoZ.com offered me a driver. Though I got this site while Googling, I find it's worth to try since the download link actually points to WindowsUpdate.com.
As I hoped, it worked fine. Based on the update date I guess this driver might be released for CP of Windows 8 and later omitted from RTM. Anyhow I solved my problem again.
