How to get Windows to detect monitor? Please Help ASAP

How do I get pc to recognize ROG PG279Q? In device manager it shows generic PnP monitor. I did a system restore before the issue occurred, (I was working on my pc remotely with TeamViewer and I did not want people to see me working so I enabled black screen. I think this is what caused the issue) I did a system restore to a time before I used the TeamViewer black screen driver, it removed the TeamViewer black screen driver but, now it shows generic PnP monitor and it does not show Asus ROG PG279Q monitor. Please help!
Thanks*

I have tried that and there is no application or setup.exe in the folder for the driver.

you need to go to device manager and under monitors right click and go to properties. then go to update driver. navigate to that folder and select the .inf file I think it is. it will probably be the only one you can select.. select it and update.. it should update the device manager entry with the right driver.

Hi, I have tried going to device manager to manually install the driver but, when I go to the file with the driver and double click it says no items match your search. Please help!!! ASAP!!!!!
