    My daughter's AOC monitor died, boo hoo, it was 6 years old so it was bound to happen. O.K., I buy a spanking new Optiquest Q75 plug it in, load the drivers and voila, it totally screws up her pc, I mean the screen was distorted like i never seen before in my life. It was like 2 giant magnets were going up and down the sides of the monitor. I brought the monitor up to my pc, it worked fine...those dam drivers screwed up her entire operating system, I could no get them off her pc so I reformatted her HD, 4 hours and many grey hairs later, (I mean if I still had hair that is), she has a new monitor. Imagine me thinking I was just going to plug it in.

    Hummm... seems you ran into imcompatable drivers! Had that happen on my matrox Etv video card and really had a ball straighting it out! I didn't have to reformat though!

    The monitor doesn't even need the dam drivers, win98se assigns drivers that work just fine. That's the last time I follow directions.
