Specs: Windows XP
So i recently switched monitors to an olevia 3
series (i don't know the exact model and the
olevia website seems to be down atm). My
computer installed its own drivers for the
monitor and now the resolution is horrible and i
cant change the settings and anything that
takes graphics won't match the resolution.
whenever i uninstall the drivers and reboot it
just installs again. i also tried uninstalling
them in safe mode and did no good. help
would be greatly appreciated

It's the 'graphics adapter' driver that you need to install, not the monitor driver. Don't be concerned with the monitor driver, it's rarely needed.

It's not the monitor driver you need to worry about, it's the graphics drivers. Identify your video card, then download & install the latest available driver.

Will it help if I put it in bold?

Identify your video card, then download & install the latest available driver.

We have no idea which video card you have...do you?
