Preferred Solution: Monitor worked, but after updates doesn't!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay, a little edit:

I've called my local tech store, BestBuy, and they gave me some useless information. I can get it to 800x600 pixels, but that is the highest I can go. It still won't let me get past Lowest 4 bit color quality. It is starting to make me angry.

I think I am going to go a little in-depth here and give you the whole story. I installed a Windows Update for my SAMTRON 76DF Monitor, and when I restarted the computer, all of my display settings where different. When I went to change them, I put them where I wanted them to be and clicked apply, but it just stayed the same. BestBuy said to get on an internet chatroom/forum and see if anyone else has had this problem.

Checklist for networking Windows Machines with TCP/IP
- PCs which are not XP must have TCP/IP installed.
- Each PC must have a unique computer name.
- Each PC must have a network share defined.
- ALL NICS must be on the same subnet (e.g. IP 192.168.0.* subnet mask
- XP PCs must have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled (only essential for XP to talk to W9X PCs).
- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

Allow 15 mins after rebooting a PC for that PC to appear in the workgroup, or
for it to see all other PCs. Or you can search for the PC by its computer name.
Additional things to check if you still have problems:
- Check your Services are Started on all PCs: Workstation, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.
- XP gives access to its shares via the Net Guest Account. (Note, not the same as the local guest account in user accounts which should be off). Net Guest Account is enabled by default in XP, but to check it, open a command prompt and type: NET USER GUEST
Should return a line with 'Account active yes'.
Check XP Security policies:
- Access this computer from the network: add guest
- Deny logon locally: remove guest
- Network access:Sharing and security model... -> Guest only
- Deny access to this computer from the network-> check Guest is not here.

I wanted to try Microsoft's new XP64bit trail version. It took five hours to download. I forgot to write the product key number down before I started the installation and couldn't get pass where you entered the key number. When I went to go back to the original OS (XP Media Edition) it had partially overwritten the data needed to open it. So I had to do a system restore only to find my email with the product key number erased. Now when I play my Motocross Madness2 trail edition game, all the players but mine act erratically. When I have an accident in the game it freezes up to a stammer and white screen. It worked perfectly before so I know my system can handle the game. I have a HP A1129N Pavilon with an AMD 64bit cpu, 512 ram, ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series (0x5954) 128MB on board video chip.

My computer has a drive for CD-ROM's and CD-ROM burning, and then another drive which can play DVDs and also play CD-ROM's. When I purchased the computer I could insert a DVD and play it fine using this InterActual player. But then, my computer had some corruption on it and we had to reload and restore Windows XP Home Edition.

Now, I try to play DVD's with this InterActual player and it has an error message when it comes up. So, I tried to play it in Windows Media Player 10 and it comes up with an error message saying that my DVD encoder isn't compatible. My guess is that when I purchased the computer at BestBuy, they installed an encoder and now that I reloaded Windows XP Home Edition the encoder is gone. Any suggestions as to what I should do?

Does anyone know why this game worked fine at one point and now does not

The game is called Return To Mystery Island. It worked okay except for an occasional reboot supposedly caused by a device driver (according o microsoft).

The only thing I did was to use system restore to load settings from an earlier time to see if the computer rebooting in the game. I reinstalled the game and it will not load at all. The error message is "RtMI.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close".

This game is not very demanding as to hardware.

A:Solved: Game worked now it doesn't

Okay I figured it out. I had to go over all the changes that I did so I could figured what was wrong. Before restoring windows to an earlier setting, I deleted many of the early games that I saved in this game. For this game to boot up I believe I had to have saved game #000 still in the saved games file for this game to operate.

Everything turns on, fans and everything. It's a completely new build. No input detected from a Samsung monitor.

I've swapped ram sticks to see if one of them is dead
I've reseated the video card

Don't know what to do.

Gonna pop my 4870 X2 into the computer to see if the video card is DOA. If not, the motherboard?

A:New Computer Build: Monitor doesn't turn on / Monitor doesn't initalize

your vga could be causing the issue, but that's only if you dont have onboard video as well.

Next time you post with a problem, make sure you give us detailed specs of your rig, when you dont its like saying "Hey, I have a red car, and it wont start."

A:Brand new laptop: Wireless worked at the start, now it doesn't


if it shows the current IP address as 169.x.x.x then the issue is not finding
(or being blocked from sending/receiving ) the DHCP service in the router.

ALSO, if you see an IP address like 0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334
then you have IPv6 enabled on the laptop;
1) google for disable ipv6
2) apply the solution for your {XP,Vista,Win/7} laptop

hi guys,

yesterday I was going to do some updates win7 found, it was stuck for a long time on 0kb 0% - it worked eventually, I deleted all updates temp files, but that didn't make things any quicker..

anyone experienced that yesterday at all?


A:Windows updates 0kb 0% for long time yesterday, then worked

Deleting all the 'updates temp files' will extend the time taken for WU, since it has then to destroy and rebuild the database it has for updates.

So long as it works in the end, there is no problem. Just leave it to do its thing!

My monitor, a 22 inch westinghouse widescreen monitor, worked fine yesterday morning. One of the kids played on it, and now it's messed up. When I go to settings, the highest resolution is 1600x1200, and I don't know what it was set at before, but this is not right. Things are stretched out a bit horizontally. The monitor manual says it should be 1680x1050, which is not an option on my display settings.

Also, it's listing my monitor as a "generic non-PNP monitor." Could the monitor type have somehow been uninstalled?

I have an hp pavilion m8430f pc running vista. It tells me all drivers are up to date. And like I say, it was fine yesterday, so I know it's possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My second monitor is a VGA monitor and worked for several months. Now i moved my computer setup to another room, and i can't get a picture on the VGA monitor. It's on and detected but it's just black.

Everything is connected exactly the same as previous.

When i boot my computer i can see the boot menu flash by for a split second, and when i change the resolution i can see the windows background for a split second. (literally 0.1 seconds).

I already bought a new dvi-vga adapter because some pins were damaged, but it didn't fix the problem.

I have the latest drivers. Already tried uninstalling and re-installing gpu driver.

I can move my mouse to the right (extended desktop) so it definitely detects it.

I'm on Windows 7

A:Second monitor black screen, worked earlier

It would seem that you have damaged the connection in some way. You mention bent pins in one of the connectors. It's possible that you have damaged the socket on the GPU. Have close look at it & see if there is any damage.

Have you tried changing the lead to the monitor.

Hey i have bought new monitor since my old one sometimes work , sometimes doesn't.When i plugged in my new monitor which is LG TV 24MS53S Smart monitor the mouse has unnatural movements they sluggish and slow and hard to control same whit my tablet.After 2 days i noticed that under Device manager under Monitors it says Generic PnP monitor which is the monitor of my laptop (lenovo y510p) if i am not mistaken.While my monitor is under Audio inputs and outputs as LG TV-C NVIDIA High Definition Audio.I dont know if that what the problems is but i need help to fix my mouse.Also my monitor is connected via HDMI and also when i connect my mouse directly to my monitor it works fine but it can only be used for TV and apps, etc.

A:It doesn't detect my monitor as a monitor

The audio is referring to the audio signal for the TV. I want to make sure I understand you correctly, you are using the external monitor (LG) as your primary display, not dual monitors...?

If this is the case, go back into Device Manager, the Generic Monitor and choose "Update device driver". As long as the LG monitor is the primary display, and your laptop screen is off, 'Generic Monitor' is referring to whichever monitor is active. If you are using both monitors, then you should have two monitors being shown in device manager.

As far as the mouse feeling 'sluggish', do you mean it's just very slow? What is the screen resolution of your new LG monitor? Is it the same as the laptop monitor? If the resolution is higher, sometimes the mouse will seem sluggish when using a higher resolution, which means you might have to turn up the pointer speed in the mouse's control panel. Before you update the device drivers for the monitor (which may or may not be able to be updated), try reducing the screen resolution of the LG and test the mouse that way.

I have had problems with Windows Update Standalone Installer in Windows 8.1, so I hoped WSUS 10.2.1 would solve the issue. First few runs - "w63 glb" error after a few seconds when using my PC desktop as target. Switched to USB as target; ran for 30 seconds, got "success" message. When I opened the installer, nothing I had chosen had downloaded and boxes were grayed out.There was an ExcludeList.txt, which listed 30 or so of the 70 updates I need to install. Tried twice; same result. Need to update is reaching critical mass.Thanks.

A:WSUS doesn't download updates

1: Go to Administrative Tools/Services, and stop the Windows Update service. 2: Then go to the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and delete ALL of the files and folders. 3: Then go back to Services and restart the Windows Update service which will recreate ALL of those folders again. 4: Then manually run the Update Service and everything should work. If you don't know how to manually start updates, reboot & Auto Updates should kick in.

I am used to windows notifying me in the system tray (and/or popups from the system tray) when there are new updates. But my windows isn't doing that.

A:Why doesn't windows notify me about updates?

It might be that Windows Update is turned off to re-enable it do the following:
Step 1: To turn on the Automatic Updates click "Start" and type "Windows Update" in the search box, then click "Windows Update" in the program list.
Step 2: In the left pane, click "Change Settings"
Step 3: Select the Option you want.

Under "Recommended Updates", select the "Give Me Recommended Updates the Same Way I Receive Important Updates" or "Include Recommended Updates When Downloading, Installing or notifying me about Updates" check box and click "Ok"

I updated Windows 7 64bit and it installed IE9 64bit. I used to be in IE8 64 or 32bit. I'm not sure.

When on IE9 I had so much problems with flash player. So I uninstalled the updates to IE9.

Now my IE8 doesn't fully work anymore. I updated Flash player, thinking that was the problem. Some thing with Internet Explorere (non-64bit)

I play a lot of those Facebook applications like farmville and cityville. I can get to the game ok, but any popup within the game to ask request, don't work anymore.

I am already using firefox for my other account, so I need IE working.

Windows says all my drivers are up to date. But for example i was going to install the Intel WiDi and said that my wireless driver needs to be updated. What are the chances that its just different type of driver it needs or the worst part a lot of my drivers are not up to date?

A:Driver updates showing up to date but doesn't look like it

HP laptops some with an HP utility that allows you to check for newer drivers from HP -- don't know if yours does, but you should check for that.

The only way to tell is to see if (1) your laptop supplier has newer version drivers for your OS, and (2) the hardware suppliers for your components have newer drivers.

I would not trust any of these online services that claim to check your drivers -- mostly, they just want your money to install the same thing your already have, or worse, the wrong drivers.

I have an older PC with Vista Business on it. The RAID chip was having a problem so it just sat for about 9 months until an update to the bios allowed me to change the RAID properties. I am able to get to the windows logon screen but it would not accept my password (same password I always use on all 4 machines I have). So I went ahead and did the pending updates, and it still won't take the password. I even use the Password Hint to help so that I don't forget my password, and still no luck. The funny part is there is a reset password link that is useless if you didn't make a floppy. Well, I didn't even know that function was available or I would have made one...
So anyway, how else can I get in, or is there another solution to why my password is not working?

Either your graphic card is broken, you could test it if you replace it with another known-good card. Or you have set windows to run from the other card which I don't believe but it could be so also. Windows usually finds automatically the aviable card. It could also be that you shut it down in BIOS but that's also unlikely.

A:I went back to my old monitor, but now it doesn't look right.

I don't know what brand of LCD monitor you bought but to compare a LCD to CRT is like 10 to 0 for color, clarity and contrast. But folks choose what they like. Did you run the Clear Type routine for LCDs? It's an option on the Display menu. This should be run to adjust how the text appears on the screen.

But, I would suggest removing the ATI drivers, reboot then install them again with the CRT attached.

Is there maybe a place I can go to download drivers that can fix the problem, or is my monitor blown?

A:My Monitor doesn't display red...

I doubt it's a software problem. First shut off the computer. Then try disconnecting the monitor from the computer. Look at the end of the cable. Do you see any bent pins? Try connecting it again. Turn the computer on. If you still don't have any red, then the red gun inside the monitor is probably shot. You'll have to replace the monitor.

Ok, I have it set up just like I did with Win7. Screen saver set for 10 minutes, monitor power off set for 15 minutes. The problem is, the monitor doesn't turn off! To be more accurate, it DOES turn off at the 15 minute mark, for about 1 minute. Then it turns back on and the lock screen shows. Then after 1 minute, the display fades out to black, but the monitor itself is still on.

I've dug through every possible thing trying to fix this, even disabling the lock screen, but nothing helps. I've never been able to get the monitor to turn off for more than 1 minute.

A:Monitor doesn't turn off

You might have ticked the "Put computer to sleep after" ten minutes...

Try finding the "Choose when to turn off the Display" in search.

Put it to ten minutes (I assume you already did this, but just in case, I wrote it out)

I have a dumb bug in my desktop that causes it to come out of sleep randomly at crazy hours of the night or day.

Even if I put it back to sleep, after a minute it wakes up again.

I'm guessing it has something to do with windows update, but I'm not sure.
But This might be a different problem... If there's a running program on your pc then it might be what's causing it to wake up.

Also wake on LAN could be a problem.

I know the hard drive and processor are working because there is a beep sound after the computer is on. I checked all the power cables on the monitor and the cpu and all of them are well connected. I also change another monitor but still having the same problem.

If I turn off the computer and restart the computer after 20-30 minutes, the monitor will work fine. But this doesn't work all the time because sometime even been waiting for 45 minutes and I still don't get anything from the screen.

Any suggestion or helps? Thanks

probably a gfx card problem, if you can try your monitor on anothe rpc or try a different monitor on your pc just to take that out of the equation

I'm running two Nvidia video cards with 3 monitors (SLI). Most of the time the monitor on the 2nd video card (only one on this one) won't load the screen. It does an odd thing where it sort of is flashing on and off in a regular pattern (sort of like it doesn't have data feed). Sometimes, however, it does load and works fine, and it seems that this is usually right after a start up.

Most recent video card drivers, Win7 up to date, etc.

A:Monitor on SLI doesn't (always) work

You can only run two monitors when configured in SLI:

A:Monitor doesn't get signal

Hi Lebon,

If the monitor shows the no signal bit, then probably not that. Have you tried your Dad's monitor on your computer? If it works, try booting into safe mode (info here if needed: Advanced Boot Options) and reinstalling the cards driver.

Hope this helps.

Hey guys, I've built my computer and the motherboard (ASUS A7N8X Deluxe, 2.08 Athlon 2800+ chip) turns on and gives power to the hard drives, but the monitor doesn't turn on. The one problem that I can think of is that my motherboard doesn't recognize the video card I put in it and since the motherboard doesn't have an onboard VGA slot, I don't know how I can get the monitor to turn on. Any ideas?

A:Help: CPU turns on but monitor doesn't

doesn't have onboard VGA slot?? I'm not sure what was meant by that statement, so I'll just run throught some basic things to check and some additional info you need to provide.

What is the rating of the Powersupply you are using in the machine. Wattage as well as rail current ratings are important.
what are the full specs of the system?
Is the video card well seated in the AGP slot?
Is the monitor cable properly connected?

Without having that additional info, its difficult to go any further

Hi! Newbie here. Hope you guys can help me.

We just got a new 19" flat screen monitor - LG L1932TQ. The desktop picture does not fit the screen properly. It recommends setting the screen resolution at 1280x1024 but when I do that the desktop extends off the edges of the screen, and there are still black areas at the top and bottom that aren't being filled. There doesn't appear to be a way to manually adjust the size like on our old monitor, you can only move the picture up & down or right to left, you can't stretch it. I'm running Windows XP.

I've recently been having slight issues with my monitor which is the LG22261and I've had this for over 5 Years and It's never missed a beat.
Now It's always worked as it should be, but when I switch on my Computer usually the red light on the right croner of the screen should flicker then you "swipe" behind for it to come on. But on a few occations nothing happens.
I have a Surge Protector Plug for all my devices and checked that they are all secure and sometimes the red light on the monitor will appear by luck.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
Thanks Rob

A:Monitor Problem Sometimes doesn't come on

While you have done the obvious, the flickering of the power light suggests that there is an intermittent power supply.
This may not work, but is cost free. Unplug everything > Take the Surge Protector Plug out of the Circuit > Plug everything back in > If possible using different Sockets for everything that you can.
Anti Surge Bars/Plugs are relatively inexpensive and easy to replace

A:monitor doesn't display anything!!!

2 options:

1) faulty vga card
2) faulty monitor

Try the monitor on another machine, if that works, then there's something wrong with your hw.
I also assume you checked the vga cable that goes from the monitor to the pc...

recently, I bought 3 optiplex GX280 and a LCD ViewSonic VG700b, from the companny where I work.
they had to remove the OS before they sell these computers to their employees.
when I tried to connect the monitor, all I could see was "no "signal.

the optiplex has an integrated video card and I need to install the OS.
but how can I navigate the installation if I can't see anything on the monitor.

I feel very lost and I would greatly appreciate any help that you can provide.

A:My monitor doesn't work

Have you tried the monitor on all the machines? Have you tried the monitor on any machines other than the optiplex's? Could be the video card on the optiplex. Make sure you have a good solid connection to the video card. Make sure it's not loose. Make sure the fan is turning on the video card. If the fan is not turning it could be dead.

What do you mean you took the CPU off? Do you mean the heatsink? The heatsink fan? If you removed the heatsink from the CPU, did you clean off the old thermal compound and apply fresh compound? If not, the CPU is overheating.

A:No monitor after updates?

You could hook your drive up to another PC and try to boot from it but I doubt it will be any different. Sounds like you have downloaded a bad driver.

Can you get it to boot in safe mode and then use system restore to take it back to before you installed the driver.

What driver was it?

What OS are you using?

Do you have the OS disc?

Hello I would appreciate any advice Dell PC Windows XP Home IE Normally rely on AVG Free and ActiveSystem Care First issue came up weeks ago - internet explorer hung up and reported a missing dll file I think - I didn t note what it was After a forced shut-down PC would not restart - stopping after the Windows down at blocked, Redirects, AVG MBAM shuts start 8.5 or Random all. doesn't updates XP logo leaving a blank screen albeit with a fully movable cursor arrow Same Random Redirects, AVG 8.5 updates blocked, MBAM shuts down or doesn't start at all. problem in Safe Mode After googling on another PC I found I could get in via quot Safe Mode with Networking quot - and used ActiveSystemCare to retrieve a restore point That allowed me to start the computer normally again Since then AVG Free tells me my definitions update failed because quot Access is forbidden by the server quot I started by manually downloading updates at work and transferring them home on CD First run after updating found quot C System Volume Information restore B B -BA A- E D-BF - E C RP A exe quot quot Trojan horse PSW Generic APUR quot quot Moved to Virus Vault quot Random Redirects, AVG 8.5 updates blocked, MBAM shuts down or doesn't start at all. However I still cannot update the definitions because quot Access is forbidden by server quot I have since found I can manually download updates onto the infected PC and update manually but there are no infections found Intermittently my browser redirects me to alternative sites usually marketing or price comparison sites I sometimes get asked to type in codes to quot confirm I am not a machine quot when visiting commonly visited pages again I ignore these and shut down IE I tried updating to AVG Free but when installing it needs to check my internet connection but tells me there is no connection detected and that I need to check my proxy settings At this point I cancel the installation I tried running MBAM - The copy I had already would initialise but after seconds just shut down After re-installing it will run once to say there are no issues found but will subsequently revert to either shutting down after seconds or not starting up at all Last resort I tried using windows system restore but it failed on both occasions I think I m at the stage of posting logs etc but thought I should wait to be invited to do so and properly directed Thanks in anticipation

A:Random Redirects, AVG 8.5 updates blocked, MBAM shuts down or doesn't start at all.

It sounds like you may have something running which is preventing you from being able to install/run security software. What I normally do is use Rkill to stop the malware processes that start when the computer comes on. Then I run the Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware. Here are some DL links for the Rkill....LINK 1LINK 2LINK 3LINK 4Once you get it downloaded double click to launch it (With Vista you need to right click and select run as administrator). You should see a little black window open and then close. If you see that box then it worked. If you don't see the black box then delete the file and use another download link and repeat the steps.Once it runs I would uninstall and then re-install the AVG and MBAM. After re-installing try runnig them. If all else fails go to Safemode. I realize that MBAM isn't as effective there but if you can atleast get it installed and run a scan you will most likely be able to get rid of some of the malware process initially. If you have problems with the AVG try safemode for that as well. Bare minimum you may be able to get it installed and updated so that when you go back in to regular Windows mode you can run it.

then i hooked up everything properly and put everything back together... and now my monitor doesn't even turn on!!!!

i took out the hard drive and put back the geforce2 (which i originally had) now the monitor doesn't turn on!!!

i made sure everything was hooked up properly and now nothing happens on the screen.

the only other different thing that happens is now it makes a lot new beeps when it starts up... as though it's recognizing all new parts except the monitor.

so the thing i want to know is if the hard drive is broken, the monitor is broken (the light of the monitor shows) or if the motherboard is broken but i doubt it becuz wouldn't everything be broken then??

Fact is that?s a serious hardware malfunction and it could be another part as well like mainboard, RAM modules, etc. It must not be the mainboard or internal LCD.

I invested a couple of bucks in a used Dell monitor at a garage sale. I did not expect much but I figured WTH, it was worth a try.

A 17" flat screen Model172FP, on power on, the screen gives a display for a few seconds then goes black.

Self test on power on - no connection to computer:
Feature Check' dialog box appear on-screen (against a black background) for a few seconds then screen goes black.

Connected to computer with computer powered up.

Computer brand flash screen appears for a few seconds then screen goes black. I tried this on both an HP and a Compaq computer. Their respective logos appeared for only a few seconds then nothing.

Think this display is worth more investigation or is it ready for deep six ?

I installed the P6S5AT motherboard, the intel 370-pin CPU, 2 IDE hard drives, 2 CD-ROM drives, 128 MB SDRAM and 64 MB SDRAM, a floppy drive, and 3 PCI cards. When I turn it on, it makes many of the sounds that it normally makes starting up, but the monitor never turns on. It continues to make these starting up sounds, but nothing else happens. Since there is no on-board video card, I am using my ATI Radeon 32MB PCI card, but the monitor is recieving nothing. The fan on the graphics card does turn on, but that's it. Is there a problem with something else I've hooked up, is it expecting an AGP graphics card, or what else can I do?

Hi Windows XP is my OS.

When i boot my machine, the monitor does not turn on. I have to press the reset button, wait, and see if it will turn on. If it doesn't I try again, and sometimes i have to turn off the power suply altogether. When the monitor eventually turns on, I sometimes get the error message "CMOS/GPNV Checksum Bad".

I have an NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX 200 video card...

This problem started a few weeks ago , although when it started the monitor came out of standby for a few seconds and then went back into standby, now however it just remains in standby.

I have a Dell E310 with XP in which I just installed a VisionTek X1550 PCI graphics card. The card seems to work fine. My issue is that since I installed the card, the monitor will not turn off when my computer tries to go to Stand-by mode. Instead, the Dell Self-test Feature Check just slowly migrates across the screen. I believe the OS is sending the signal to turn off the monitor because the STFC would only appear when the monitor no longer detects the graphics card. So it's like the OS is shutting down the graphics card, but the signal doesn't reach the monitor to power it off (change the power button from green to amber and set the screen completely black). I would really like to get this working again. Does anyone know how to correct this? Thanks!

Hello, I have a Acer Aspire TC-710, with 8 GB RAM, and an Intel i5 processor.  I have a 2008, Acer, LCD monitor. It does not have HDMI, so I have to use an adapter. The model number is, ETLAN0802481807F924200. It seems the monitor will restart randomly. I very, very highly doubt this is the computer's fault, as it is a few days old, and, when restarting, the monitor has a different font/layout then my computer would use while powering on. If I am playing music and it restarts (or whatever it does) I can still hear the music. Any way I can fix this?

Put a CRT monitor on it and check the Display/Resolution. LCD monitors only work on certain resolutions, so you'll need to find out what your works on and set your card to that.
