    Have you tried switching to a different screen refresh rate?
    If the problem is indeed with Windows XP then you might wanna try restoring your system to an earlier restore point before you've experienced this issue for the first time.

    Here's a simple online guide on how to do a system restore on Win XP:

    I hope this helps to solve your problem.
    If you can't do anything in windows because you can't read the monitor screen then I'm not sure if there is anything software-wise you can do to solve this issue.

    Have you tried going to safe mode shortly after you restart your computer?
    Just hold down the F8 key before the Windows logo appears and then choose windows safe mode.
    If the screen works fine there then it must be something wrong with your windows configuration and you should be able to make a system restore to an earlier point there.

    if two monitors are displaying same then it is probably the video,have you a video card installed or running off the motherboard,if you have a card installed then boot into "Safe mode" tap F8 on startup then you can check device manager for any yellow! or Xs at your display driver entry
