Otherwise you will need Windows 7 driver from LG if they have one.
Most monitors works fine without the need of the drivers when running XP, but Windows 7 you need the correct drivers to get the correct resolution setting, that is one of the reason I do not care much for Windows 7 until they fix this problem, since a lot of people out there that still have great working monitors that work just fine with XP, most manufacturers do not provide drivers for Windows 7 for old monitors because they want you to buy new monitors.
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to fail to detect a hard drive continue on a cycle or to shutdown
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA and
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
Right click on a blank spot on your desktop and select properties. You are looking for the tab that allows you to reset your resolution (I no longer have XP so I cannot double check which for you right now) and reset it to a HIGHER number by sliding the slide to the right and click apply. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons will be. It may take a little bit of experimenting to find what you like or what you had. It sounds like the program you used is an older one that was intended to run on windows 95 since 95 had a default resolution that was very low (800x600 I think). If you intend to use this program again, try running it in Windows 95 compatibility mode and it may eliminate the problem when you shut it down. To do this, open My Computer and the drive that has your programs on it (probably 'C' by default) and Program Files and look for the program's main executable (".exe), right click on it, click on the compatibility tab and select 'run as windows 95' and OK.
Boot the computer in safe mode. While booting press the F8 key and on the Windows Advance boot screen, select safe mode and press enter. Once you are on the logon screen, select Administrator account. Click on Start and rightl click on My computer, then click properties Go to hardware tab and click on Device manager. In the device manager look for Display adapter, Click on the + sign, right click on the listed devices and uninstall. Now you should be able to boot the computer in normal mode.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Assuming you are running Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, or XP...
During boot, after "all the computer details come up", press F8 repeatedly until a menu appears. One of the options will be "Enable VGA Mode". Choose that option. Once into Windows, right-click the desktop and hit "Properties". Go to the "Settings" tab, and change the "Screen Resolution" to the lowest possible setting (800x600 is safe). Click OK, and reboot.
Your problem should now be gone. You will want to go back into that screen after you have rebooted and set the resolution higher. At some certain resolution, you'll have the problem again. Don't go that high.
If you are using Windows Vista, then right-click the desktop, hit "Customize", and choose "Display Settings".
OK well ya have to "get" the file(s) and reinstall them where needed... maybe ya install files are on the hard drive ? check.. else use another PC and Down Load what ya need... OR Try starting in "Safe Mode" press F8 at boot up time.. and select "Last Know Good Configuration" & see if that helps... else ya just gonna have to get a CD/DVD from somewhere and use that to fix.

Reboot the computer and start in safe mode.(Press F8 at start-up in WIN XP).Change display resolution to 800><600 and restart in normal mode.
Your original problem must be monitor hardware related ie some loose connection or dry solder on invertor /power board inside the monitor.
