Cannot locate a driver for a Mag Innovision lt716s

I have a Mag 17 inch monitor Prod nr. LT716S and Model 700P.  It is being driver by an nvidia geforce 2 agp card.

The montitor is blotchy and I cannot locate drivers for this.  I know this is a cheapy monitor but it should display better than it does (it is blotchy and hard to read type etc).

Generally, there are no drivers for monitors.  If it is blotchy and hard to read..perhaps adjusting the focus,brightness & contrast would be your fix.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

some troubleshooting:

If the focus control is NOT exposed on the outside of the monitor...then you will have to open the monitor up..

located on the video driver board (in monitor) are 2 controls.. one for "luminance" and the other is "focus"... you can adjust these potentiometers with a PLASTIC screwdriver. opening the monitor you subject yourself to high-voltage, it may be prudent that you have a repair person do this for you.
I wouldn't attempt to open the monitor... try the drivers and troubleshooting tips above, if no luck, return it.

@All... let me do it! ;-)
I agree you should try the 'drivers' above first. (They are actually just inf files I think.)

You might wanna consider that you have two different monitors having the same problem on the same video card.
- I'd look for isses with the video card first. Seems more likely.

Many newer monitors have moved adjustments such as luminance, brightness, focus, contrast into firmware and it's adjusted by front controls. On these, the old manual adjustments aren't even there. Some times there is a trick to get into a maintenance menu.

That said:
Anyone with an average electrical technical ability/knowledge and an average level of common sense should be able to safely make those adjustments.. (Okay, maybe slightly above average.)

PLASTIC screwdriver.. (on the POTs anyway.)
STAY OUT of the high voltage cages..
Stay away from Capacitors!!!!!
Go slow....
Only turn things 1/4 turn (or less) at a time between checking responce...
... mark where it was before you move it...
... count how many turns you go and WRITE IT DOWN!
Do this for ALL things you adjust.
This way if you screw it up you can go back to ground zero and start over.

I fiddled around with the controls etc and lowered the resolution and it is ok (not hot but readable).  So I am just closing this out and saying thanks.
