I was getting an old pc back from a repair shop (I had completly forgotten about it xD) well, the computer is absolutely ok, but thing is, it wont connect to a specific monitor (1080x1920 LCD with PC In input) but when I connected it to an 4:3 1240p screen it worked PERFECT... Help?

Note: When I re-booted my computer back (on the 16:9 LCD) an image appeared, but was all fragmented and the image was covered with some green and blue squares, all this while it froze loading winXP... And before you think it's the monitors fault, it isn't. Both monitors work perfectly fine. (the 4:3 and the 16:9 one). And the 4:3 has been working wonders connected to the pc so far.

Hope anyone can help :(

see if theres a driver available for that monitor or for your video card / adapter.

If you can not find a driver update as vistual recommends then try starting with the advanced boot mode options (F8 at bootup) and select enable low resolution video. That may get you started so you can at least see something and set the best resolution for your older video adapter. If you try a resolution and it effects the monitor weirdly, wait patiently 15 sec or so and it should revert back.

my monitor is an SANYO 15~inch (I think) 16:9 FULL HD monitor, where do I get that driver?
I know how to get one for my card, but not for a monitor :|

EDIT: My video card is at it's latest version, unless you can find something higher than this version:
Nvidia GeForce4 MX 4000 5.6.7.3. (i know, my video card sucks...)

Nevermind, I got it working, it seems there was another VGA port and that was the one to the GeForce 4 MX 4000. Mine was connected to an on-board VGA xD
Anyway thank you anyway for trying to help me :)
