Re: I have two lg monitors on spreat dispaly adapters

You don't need a driver for the monitors, the native plug and play driver in XP usually works as well as any manufacturer supplied driver. What's happened is XP doesn't recognize the onboard display adapter. If this is a name brand system (you didn't mention what type it is) download the XP display driver from the manufacturer's web site. If it's a custom built system, there should be a motherboard CD that came with the system that has the display driver on it. When all else fails, download System Information for Windows from It will tell you what type of onboard display adapter the system has.

I have a lg flat screen monitor, the words are blurred

Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

The display does not expand the entire monitor? i have a 25" monnitor and the dispaly is only using 15"?

You need to setup your monitor for full display. Look at the button in your monitor and press "Auto/Set" (or something similar) then it will start to display as desired. Actually, your 25" monitor has a built-in option to display in several aspect ratio. Please choose a ratio that will fill up the entire screen.

Another one restriction here is your video cards. Some video cards limit display size and resolution.

check in your computer graphic drivers are installed correctly.
If installed then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.Set screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
You can set screen resolution in control panel dispaly property.

No driver

Monitors do not need drivers, the drivers are used on the video display adapter.

If monitor does not display full definition, then it is the display adapter driver.

If the monitor does not display anything, then the monitor is faulty or the cable is not well connected or faulty.

Provide video adapter model to get drivers for your video adapter.
