i have just completely reformatted my hard drive using Dban, and then loaded windows XP on it. To do so I had to download drivers from the ACER site . The laptop is a refurbished aspire 5338 and i now have an ok display on my screen but it isnt right. I have discovered that when I right click on the desktop I have a default monitor loaded.
I dont know how to find out what the correct one should be, I dont know where to find the driver, and I dont know how to make the change?
There must be a more specific model number either on the screen boarder or under the laptop chasis. Locate that and search google for the specification of that model to find out which graphics card it has and download the proper drivers.

Have a look at the start-up screen before Windows loads there may be details of which video chipset is in it.
