laptops & monitor driver by buffalo rider
Does anyone know if the monitor driver matters in laptops? When we click on the 'display' icon (or function) and select Settings-Advanced, we have two places to select drivers. a. Display Adapter b. Monitor For non-laptop computers, we use both, and both make a difference.

Recurring Monitor Problem by DaffyD®
We have an old Cybervision 19-inch monitor. The problem we have is that on a recurring basis (it started closed to a year ago) the display is compressed into a horizontal line with the rest of the screen black. My son found out that if we tap the top of the monitor, that fixes the problem. Would...
