That looks more like a rendering problem than a display problem which points to drivers/graphics chip. I would not use the Intel drivers as OEMs use the chipsets differently depending on the hardware they are connected to. Go the OEM website for the motherboard/graphics card and download their drivers.

  • Hey Thanks for your help, but I need little more help. Where do I find OEM graphics drivers ?

  • You need the make/model of the graphics card itself(or the motherboard if it's on-board graphics), not just the chipset.

  • The Model of my Motherboard is X31_ICH7. By the way, how do I know that it is on-board graphics. And How do I know the make/model of the graphics card. Well, I am using some software named Speccy to know about this problem.

When my displays go a little crazy I try doing:

  1. Make sure all plugs are plugged in correctly
  2. Test with another display
  3. Test with another cable
  4. Update display drivers

Also, out of curiosity, what were you watching in the second picture?

  • oh its the G.I. Joe Rise Of Cobra Movie.....:)
