Re: monitor not working

It's caused by Windows Update, try to uninstall some of your last updates like KBxxxxx or IE7 or windows media, but the most secure is to re-register your copy with MS

Re: monitor not working

Use a legitimate serial code to activate your Windows again. This is a built in protection system from Microsoft which simply disable some features to "punish" you for using an illegal version.

Are you using two monitors?
Adjust the resolution of the one you use most and download the newest driver package from the manufacturer of your video chips - Nvidia, AMD-ATI or Intel.
The manufacturer's software has a special utility just for this purpose, to put great displays on two monitors or to adjust just the main one, can even display up-side-down!

You may be victim of software counterfeiting

Hi there. Sounds like it could be a malware virus that gives you false alerts. Run a virus scan using your own software. I would also download and install Windows Defender from Microsoft, update it, and then run a scan in Safe Mode. If neither of these come up with anything, then I would try Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner. Just click on this link, and click Full Service Scan:

If none of the above work, and you believe that you have a genuine copy of XP, give Microsoft customer services a call, they will ask you for your Windows Key and can check that it is.

Connection b/w two computers w/o a router

You need a crossover CAT5 cable like this:
It must be a crossover cable not a straight cable.
Plug one end into the LAN port of your desktop and the other into the LAN port of your laptop.
Go to the control panel and click the Network Icon, in the list on the left click "set up a home or small office network" the wizard will walk you through it, it is very easy.
You will need to think of a name for your network (MSHOME is the default setting) and use that name on both machines and you will have to give each machine a name.
