Do I need to install the WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) driver in Windows for my BenQ monitor? Is there an updated version of the WHQL driver?

Microsoft pre-installs all relevant certifications and drivers for BenQ monitors in Windows.

It is not necessary to install any driver in a Windows desktop or notebook, as BenQ monitors are plug & play displays.

If there is no image on the screen, make sure your graphics card is activate and uses the latest driver version. Unlike monitors, graphics cards and adapters are not always plug & play.

BenQ only puts one ICC profile in the WHQL driver which can be downloaded from BenQ's official website, and is fine-tuned for the color space of the native panel. In general, the ICC profile won’t be updated unless the panel model is changed.

To follow user manual instructions to install a WHQL driver, the ICC profile (.icm file) will be applied in Windows on your PC.

After that, the color space of the native panel will be identified by your desktop or notebook.

How can I check whether the monitor backlight is DC (direct current) driven or PWM (pulse width modulation) driven?

Does the AUX audio output of the monitor pass through raw signal or processed signals?

In response to your concerns, we would like to inform you that BenQ is devoted to bringing the best quality products to our customers, so all of our display products are manufactured under strict supervision to ensure that they follow local safety regulations and exceed industry standards.

We are also in full compliance with RoHS/REACH regulations, as well as California Proposition 65 (also called The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act), which requests companies across industries to disclose the use of chemicals listed under this Act for their products.

We also want to inform you that BenQ’s display products include lead that can be found on internal PCBA components. For this reason, BenQ, as well as other leading electronics companies, have enforced the required caution labeling, with the fact that electronic components are generally internal to consumer level products, so the potential for consumer exposure to component surfaces is low, and the potential to reach specified exposure levels for the listed substances is even lower. To eliminate the chance of exposure to any hazardous substances, please do not attempt to disassemble your display product and try to repair the PCBA components yourself.



Nevertheless, we want to assure you that customer safety and health when using our products are our first priority. If you still have concerns or questions, please contact your local BenQ customer care team for further assistance.
