Please help. I upgraded from ME to XP and now have a fuzzy monitor (MagView) monitor. I think it uses the Intel Graphics Technology. Not sure if Iomega or WildTangent has anything to do with it, but they were listed as "software that does not support Windows XP" before the upgrade occurred. Yes, the upgrade occurred without resolving these issues.

Can you help me resolve the monitor issue? I cannot seem to locate a fix without your help. The monitor seems to be more fuzzy in middle than around the edges.

Thanks in advance!

first, did you update your drivers? head to intel's site and find drivers for your chipset for XP, don't use your ME drivers.

Hi Optimist4,

If you aren't sure what hardware you have with regard to your drivers, you can download Everest Home (free) at http://www.lavalys.com , and also checkout your drivers from Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager, and don't forget to show hidden devices with the View pull-down.

I am downloading that program now, and will check it out. I also had downloaded Belarc Advisor (also free). Do you know anything about that program?

Hi Optimist4,

Belarc Advisor is more of a software inventory utiltity that has recently been upgraded to report a security audit via a 2nd web page that is generated. The security audit is straight out of what the National Secuirty Agency (NSA) recommends for WinXP.

Belarc Advisor is especially good at detecting whether Windows Updates are properly installed - quite handy to know if you need to reinstall an update that might not be working.

P.S. Belarc Advisor: http://www.belarc.com
