Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Screen Display I have attached a 2216Vw computer monitor to my 4 year old Windows XP computer.I cannot get the screen display to look normal - round things are still elongated sideways football shaped.I have done multiple things trying to resolve it with the driver and with the screen menu options to no avail.The text is also blurry from line to line - shadowing.


Answers :

The SiS 661FX is a chipset that has onboard video. Your motherboard manufacturer (or computer manufacturer if you have a name brand unit) should have the latest video drivers for your motherboard. Installing those drivers should fix the problem.

If you have already installed updated video drivers, post what you installed and where you got them from and we can go from there.
