I use a Dell LCD Monitor and every time I have tried to format and reinstall XP on my hard drive I go to my Monitor section and the Monitor Properties are shaded out thus making me stuck with the default crap that XP put on for my comp. I have the drivers I need for my monitor but the frackin thing wont let me use them.

Does anyone know away around that so that I can install my drivers a different way?

I've tried installing XP in several ways with a different monitor and removing my video card to use the onboard video and did it with both my LCD and a CRT monitor and its the same thing every time. Maybe its because it only lets me format using NTFS but I dunno...I've tried everything I can think of and I'm at the end of my rope on this one.

Here is a screenshot of what it is doing.

If anyone can help me, please do so...this crap is making me insane!

Right click My Computer then Properties. Click on the Hardware tab then Device Manager. Click the + next to Monitors then right click on your monitor then click on Properties. Click on the Driver tab where you can view the details or update the drivers.
