Question about IBM E74 17" CRT Monitor
For past few days, I am experiencing a strange problem with my monitor. When the system is started all the text is appearing with a lower resolution (the font size is increasing). Once windows starts loading, the screen goes blank and it would flash for few times periodically before it goes balnk completely.
I have checked the monitor to see if there was any problem with the circuitry but nothing was found. I think this might be problem with the display card or drivers but unable to figure out which is the correct reason.
Thanks in advance for all your help.

To change your monitor's resolution
Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
Drag the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger. Or drag the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor's resolution, making text and pictures appear smaller.
Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect.
If the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, look at your display. If you like the new resolution, click Yes. If you do not like the resolution, click No, and return to step 3 to try a different resolution.
Microsoft Windows XP changes the resolution to the settings you chose.

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your
screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear
smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer
items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very
low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.
For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution,
and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a
resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support
the higher resolutions.
Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and
capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.
Text and images are sharper and smaller at high screen resolutions
Text is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen
Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
