TFT Problems

Specs: XP, 512
Hi there guys,

After helping me before i though id come to you again!

I re-installed xp on an old machine, all perfect. Got a
second hand monitor off a friend, works lovely except
that the display is too zoomed in kind of thing! Lol it's
hard to say but imagine you are on a website it
appears zoomed in, you try to zoom out but it goes
tiny! any obviously the icons are larger etc but most
annoying on internet!

The resolution is on 800x600 but wont allow any of the
other settings because it goes black and the monitor
says cannot display this video mode.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help

You need to install the graphics drivers.

Without any specs on your system I can't tell you where to go or what to get.

Get SIW from the link below and use it to determine what graphics card/chip you have and then download the correct drivers.

You probably need other drivers for your computer too.

What is the model number of your computer or if custom built post the motherboard model after using SIW.

Go to the link below and download the drivers for your imedia 5094. I suggest you burn ALL the drivers and other materials there to disk and keep for the future.
