Default Compatibility Problem with GTS 8800 and Samsung 226BW

As many suggested, I bought these items, and my computer is great, but the Samsung monitor comes with a program to make the monitor better called "MagicTune". Of course, I installed the software. I get messages saying "This computer does not support MagicTune." I went to the MagicTune website, and sure enough it is not compatible with the GTS 8800.

Has anyone found a fix for this conflict?

Bundled software with hardware is always a bad idea. Seriously, never instal it - if you ever need drivers you should get them from the manufacturers website. This kind of bundled software isnt tested enough and often has conflicts.

Anyway, you dont need any software for a monitor, especially considering you have a very good one. My advice is just uninstall it - there is no reason to have it.
