My o my, driver problems - Big time.

Download the soundcard drivers for your ess1869 from www.esstech.com (On the top of the page select Isa/Pci)

The color problem is not your monitor. Open your case look on the vid card what make and version number it is. Go to www.driverzone.com and search for it.
