    Hi all,
    I am running XP on a Sony Vaio and i think i am having issues with my display settings.
    Is it right that i should have 2 displays showing in display properties - 1 is multiple monitors on Nvidia and 2 is default monitor on Nvidia?
    The reason i ask is because i tried to update my video driver and ever since the screen quality has never looked as sharp as it used to.
    I went onto my desktop pc and that has only 1 monitor showing.
    I tried to delete one of the displays in device manager but it keeps coming back.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Craig.

    If I was you I would run a system restore, back to before you downloaded the new driver
    see if that sorts your problem

    start > run > type in msconfig in the box
    then click on launch system restore
    choose a date in bold, before you downloaded the new driver
    follow the promps

    Should I have 2 displays within display properties though?
