You should try to update the driver for the display adapter, not the monitor. right click my computer>hardware tab>device manager if anything, that should be it. You like staying with win 98?

SOURCE: Menu pop ups

Try this:

Under the menu options, there's Menu Lock. Switch it to "On". It worked for me.
My menu button wasn't working, so to access the menu, I had to hold down the arrow up button and push the arrow down button till I got to the Menu Lock Option.

Need to set the color to 6500K

No, the manufacturer is the one to contact on what resolution is best for your project.
Most monitor are already set for best resolution for photos and movie view and also media editing so you should be OK
if your monitor is a recent model at 16500X780 or it says that is 1080p or 1080 i then you should have no issue with the color setting.
You can go to the control panel and set the display settings for hue, color , contrast and brightness if your Monitor has a graphical user interface for it. Check your user manual for color adjustment for your monitor and also the video card that is install in the PC.
The "control panel will have the display setting for "true, and High color resolution.

If Blue colors display properly in pictures or graphics check the display and size settings of your computer in relation to the size monitor.

If there is a problem with the blue color because of a problem with the monitor you might be able to compensate for it either with controls on the monitor or with the control software of your video card.

Hannspree 19" HF199H LCD - Display is LARGE on monitor!

Try Control Panel - Appearance or Display- You can change how your 2nd display looks there.. Sounds like you have it set in Clone mode...(both displays show the same things)...See if you can reset the 2nd display resolution while keeping the laptop in its normal resolution. Not all machines can do this...but most recent ones should be able to.

Screen is now a weird color

The problem might be in the cable. Try to reconnect it to your machine. Also try to set your color settings on the monitor itself, so that all the colors are equal.

Screen colors

possibly screen color depth is set to 16 colors. - open control panel display - settings tab, slide the color depth to 16 bit. - change resolution to 800 x 600 for now. reboot and see if that does the trick, then readjust settings to your tastes.
