Frustrating isn't it. I had that problem for a little while.
Are you using a standalone monitor or do you have a laptop? If it's a standalone, you could reinstall it from the cd that you got with it. However, if you go to Control Panel\Device Manager, Monitors, click on your monitor if it's shown. If not, I would reinstall it as above. If it is shown, click on it and, under the Driver tab, double click on the driver details. You'll probably see two drivers. Click on the one associated with your monitor. Only time will tell if it helps. If not, I'm sure you'll be back.
