My AOC G2460FQ monitor is displayed as "Unknown monitor" in Windows 10 display settings. When I go to the "Display adapter properties" and go to the "Monitor" tab, the "Properties" button is greyed out. After a quick googling, there are no related results anywhere that aren't 15 years old. I do not have the monitor's drivers, which could be the reason, but the problem is, that I cannot install the drivers without accessing that tab. If you need any more information, I will gladly provide that.

Display Adapter = GPU (GTX 960). I tried loading the drivers, but they just give .cat, .icm and .inf files, none of which do literally anything. The problem I'm having is that when I connect it to my GPU using DP, it shows nothing. DVI works fine though. This error occurred after I had a lot of trouble with Nvidia drivers today, I had to do everything from windows system restore to full driver sweep to get it alive, and in the mean time the DP connection stopped working.

Oh, I see, I had totally missed the "Install" option.

Edit: The installation didn't fix anything. Only thing it did was that now I cannot choose any other refresh rate than 60 in that view, when I could pick 60-144.
