Somehow we lost the multiple colours to our monitor. I have taken out the video card, but don't know what brand it is (it is PCI though). There is an NVIDIA GFORCE2 MX chip on it and I have downloaded the drivers for it.
It's a Viewsonic monitor and I too, have downloaded the drivers for it.
I checked the monitor and cable on another machine and it worked fine.
I noticed on my laptop that under Control Panel - Display - Settings - Display I have "Multiple Monitors on ATI Mobility Radeon (2.58.8 Omega)" and a drop down menu for others if I need them. Using XP.
I noticed in the same area on the computer that's giving trouble, I don't have the same thing. It just says VGA default monitor with no drop down menu.
I did go into Device Manager and check the drivers that are available for Displays and it shows the two NVIDIA drivers I downloaded - one for the chip I mentioned and the other for Nforce
Could the Video card be DOA?
Any other ideas?
