    I just reinstalled XP on my computer, and I was previously using a Optiquest (Viewsonic) widescreen monitor. A used the included disc to reinstall the drivers after I reinstalled windows, and the software is unable to configure the drivers. The installer automatically opens a text file which tells me to open the hardware manager and open the "+" next to the Monitor. I don't seem to have a monitor on the list, and I'm not sure what to do. The correct screen size is not available from the display properties tab, presumably because I haven't configured it properly. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Hi Ethan.
    Viewsonic is plug & play so once connected should self install and work.
    Check it out here. Start / Control panel / Administrative tools / Computer management /Device Manager /Your Viewsonic should show up there.The disks that come with Viewsonic can be a little temperamental, Widows as all the viewsonic updates click onto windows updates use the custom setting and run,then in the left panel choose hardware updates.you will probably see the viewsonic latest update there and any more you may need for your PC.
    Good luck
