Monitor showing 3 screens instead of one

I recently tried to hook up a new pc with xp to a Philips Super Vga Monitor (cm2089js01) - 3 of the xp register screens came up.  I tried unplugging monitor and plugging back in - full shutdown.  No go.  It worked about 20 mins before on a different pc.  Then I tried another brand new pc with xp and the same thing happened.  Is it safe to say the monitor needs replacing?

Hello SheriLynn73 =)

You have tested the monitor with two systems, and its producing the same problem, then it cannot be said that the problem is with the windows or with a particular system,,,,, ofcourse if monitor is behaving oddly then the doubt is abt it !!:-?

If this is an old 15" monitor, as I think it is, it may just not be compadible with todays video cards. I would check the cable and the pins on the plug and try deglossing the monitor, but it sounds like the old monitor is the problem.

Monitor input from a computer is usually nothing special.  In this instance it prevented anyone from using the computer.  This was a preconfiguration that didn't work.
