Use Driver Cleaner Professional 1.5 to totally uninstall the video drivers. Then install a fresh set of drivers. I would download and expand the fresh drivers into it's own folder under c\:
When you reboot the computer windows should prompt you to install your hardware. Simply select "Have Disk.." and point to the folder where the drivers are.

Make sure you have up to date video drivers. The other thing to check is Control Panel - System, Device Manager - Monitors. If it says default monitior then that is the problem. If you don't know your monitor type or you can't download the correct drivers for the monitor. Select update drivers and select a SVGA monitor from the available list. :thumbsup:
