    Is the connection between your monitor VGA or HDMI? I had this same problem with my monitor when I attempted to use it with a HDMI cable, however the VGA worked fine.

    Have you tried switching to HDMI and back to VGA on your monitor? there should be buttons either on the underside or the front to get into the settings for the monitor.

    There should be options in the monitor settings to switch between HDMI, VGA and there's another option but I can't remember at the minute. These should be on the monitor even if you haven't plugged in a HDMI cable. Press a few of the buttons and see if you can get a display settings menu to come up.

    I probably should have asked this earlier but, do you have display drivers for your monitor installed? Press some of the buttons and find out which ones open up the settings, if it's the wrong button you can always cancel it.

    Right, some monitors come with the drivers already on them, so they install as soon as your pc is booted with the monitor attached. Some of them don't however. How old is your monitor?

    Ok, it's unlikely that the drivers would be the cause of it though, what's the make and model of the monitor?
