Try This:
Go to your control panel and select Display, if you goto the Settings tab ( top right) and then drag the slider to different variables, try 800X600 to start with and drag the sliders to desired position.

What has probably happened is that the refresh rate changed from that for the 14' monitor to a higher one when the 15' monitor was connected.
Go to Display from Control Panel, then Settings-Advanced-Monitor.
You now have the choice of letting Windows select a monitor driver, or you can opt to select your 14' monitor from a list.

Let Windows try to detect and find the driver for your 14' monitor. If it cant find one, and you dont have it on floppy, then try selecting a Standard SVGA monitor from the list.
Let us know how you get on.
