this is a video card issue. do you have a very old card? or is this maybe on a laptop. you may find that updating to the latest drivers for your video card will fix it.

It's really awkward updating the graphics card unless you know what you've got !

Right-click the Desktop
Select Properties
Select Settings

Under Display If it just says about the monitor
Click the Advanced button
Select Adapter
You want Adapter Type { that should give you the make and version of the card )
Select Properties
Select Driver ( and that should give you the driver version )

if its not a laptop, you could get a really cheap card and it would be way way better, providing the motherboard itself isn't a million years old.
