My monitor has worked fine since Ive had it. But today I decided to use my TV as an external monitor. After I was done i tried hooking my monitor back up to my desktop and it is jumping all over the screen and i cant do anything. I cant change resolution or anything and i dont think its the monitor because i tried a second monitor with a different cord and it still didnt work. If you need more understanding of what exactly my computer is doing i can make a quick video showing you my monitor.
Also when i first start the computer the windows xp load screen is fine but once it goes to the blue welcome screen my monitor goes crazy and i cant see anything.

you need to change your video settings back to match the monitor.
windows startup looks right because the video driver has not yet been loaded.

you need to enter safe mode so the video driver will not load, then you can change the settings.

enter safe mode by restarting and tapping F8 key before windows starts. you will then be presented with a menu of different ways to start windows (chose safe mode)

if you do not know your monitors settings you may be able to use system restore (while in safe mode) to correct the issue.
