I have Windows XP and am using a Dell Latitude D610. The monitor is an acer Model No. P221W.

If anyone knows how to fix it I would be greatful.

Right click on My Computer in the startmenu>SystemProperties>Hardware>
Device Manager. Under Monitors you can update the driver or enable driver; assuming you disabled it.

If you deleted the driver then go to the Acer website to download the correct driver.

http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx

However, the above link only gives the OS as Vista and not XP! What is your son's OS?

Hope this helps!
