Hi 2neat
Thanks for your swift response Yes its a new one on me too If I do a repair will I lose any programs or drivers

No, you wont lose any programs or drivers doing a repair.

Are you saying the single monitor screen is split 6 ways? each being a small screen in it's own right?

If so you wanna get to the bottom of this and sell it as an application!!

Joking aside - do you have an up to date, good anti-virus?

Hi Rich_B
Yes thats what I am saying, no I have not got anti virus on yet I just reformatted the drive and reinstalled xp This is not my computer it was working fine on my monitor.My mate took it home and connected to his monitor which produced the said problem I will do a repair and see if that will sort it out unless someone comes up with the answer because I won't see him until next week

How old is the monitor as some older monitor will not work correct on present day computers

Seeing that it working fine on your monitor your mate need to change the monitor
