are you sure its not a setting on your monitor? it would help if you would post more specifics (monitor type and model, computer brand and model, or if custom, specific hardware)

Why did you format ?
What video are you using ?

Try resetting the CMOS
Unplug the unit
there should be a jumper near the motherboard batter to reset the CMOS
If there is no jumper remove the battery but becareful not to break the holder.
It shoud have a small metal clicp you compress that lets the battery pop up on one side
Leave the battery out for a minute & put it back on

Be sure the battery is back on or the jumper is back in it's original posistion BEFORE you plug the unit in.

If that doesn't work & you have a add-in video card try removing it & use the onboard video [if it has it] or a different card.
