Installing monitor drivers is important because monitor needs to adapt with the operating system you’re using, and it needs to be updated because it may have security risk if you keep it out-of-date. For example, when you first time use Windows 10, you may have to install Intel HD Graphic drivers (if you use Intel) to make your Windows 10 able to use more screen resolution.
And, you have to know what to expect when you install monitor drivers.
