Hi, My name is ***** ***** certified computer professional with over 10 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this. .I am sorry to hear that you are heaving this issue.Make sure the connections are good on the monitor cable and then reboot your computer and check. The xp should recognize the monitor after you reboot the compter.
Okay, let know what happens please.
Yes, check both ends of your cable make sure the pins are straight and tight.
Okay, when connecting a monitor to a system running Windows XP, it will be automatically recognised and installed.There must be a setting on the xp that was used by the other persons monitor.
try pressing the Windows key and P at the same time.
