usually monitors do have drivers. (AFAIK). Drivers are usually not required, but if the monitor has features that are not usually seen, the driver dictates communication with these features. so you might want to search for the brand by name online.

also getting numbers like the serial number or product number on the back of the monitor might turn up results while the name doesn't as a manufacturer might have it listed differently in inventory.

Windows 7 is easy!

hold down the windows button (the flag), than press "P"

it gives you 4 options (computer only, extend, duplicate, projector only)


problem solved.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop from a friend. It has a weird display problem. The colours are all wrong - pinks, blues greens, text is indistinct, swirly coloured lines prevent the screen content being read easily. If I connect an external monitor, the display on that is fine. This suggests that the...
