Hi, I need help with a Graphics issue. My laptop renders my external Monitors slightly out of focus or fuzzy. I thought it was the Monitor but when I hook up my much older PC (running XP) the Screen quality is fine! I got a different monitor hooked up to it now. The screen is still fuzzy. I noticed a few other weird issues.
-When I hook up the Flat Screen exterior Monitor to my laptop both Monitors stay on. When I hook up my Laptop to my old heavy Tube monitor the Laptop monitor automatically turns off.
-When I go into Personalize/Display Setting it has 2 monitors showing. The Exterior is #1 & the Lap is #2. The max setting for Monitor #1 is 1924 X 768. #2 has a ton of choices. maxing out at: 1920 X 1080.

My Computer friend said I probably do not have the right &/or updated ATI Radeon Xpress 200M Series Graphics drivers. I went to ATI website & they didnít have drivers listed for that series. Itís probably too old (2006). I was able to download ATI Catalysis:
vista#32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu 70229.exe

I installed both & rebooted & nothing changed. Iím not sure if I did something wrong during the install. I even went into the Display setting/Advanced/ Monitor/Properties/Drivers & had the system directed to : 8-11_vista#32_dd_70229.exe
I thought there would be some prompts to help me optimize the display. Nothing happened. So I guess what Iím asking is:
-What Graphic drivers do I need to be up-to-date?
-Where can I find them?
(since I had no luck at ATI or AMD)
-Could the problem do that My laptop monitor is interfering with the setting on the Exterior Monitor?-
-Anyone know how to manually turn off Laptop monitor while Ext. Monitor is working using Vista & Toshiba laptop?

I have all the specifications listed below. I would greatly appreciate your help.
Toshiba Satellite laptop S119- Business Vista (32 bit) - SP1- Intel Celeron Proc. 1.5 GHz
2 Gig Ram- Display adapter: Radeon Xpress 220M series (Microsoft Corp WDDM)
