Black screen will not boot up, Monitor says that my resolution is too high for it. It flashes a window for the Optimal Resolution which is 1650x1050.

I reseated the RAM dimms and the hard drive and doesn't work. I've also tried resetting the bios by disconnecting the little battery for a few minutes.

Tapping F8 to change the resolution doesn't work. I have Vista Home.

Turn your notebook off.
Turn your notebook on, and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once or twice per second,
until you see the Windows "start-up" menu (white text over a black background).
Choose the "start in VGA (low-resolution") mode" (or some wording similar to that).

You computer will start-up in '800-by-600-by-256-colours' mode, which should work.
Adjust the screen-resolution, and the number of colours to "optimal" values.

Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW Monitor "Not


The "native" resolution of the monitor is the "optimal" resolution -- it looks best to use this resolution.

So, right-mouse click anywhere on your Windows desktop "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Move the "Screen Resolution" slider to the recommended settings.
Click Apply.
Click OK.

Input Not Support


This means, that your operating system is not set to the recommended resolution of your monitor. Your monitor has a "fixed" resolution where the image will look best. You can change the solution in Windows XP if you right-click on a free space of your desktop, then choose "Properties". In the new window, that comes up, select the rightmost tab. There you can use the slider to adjust your resolution. Just try some different resolutions until the message disappears. If you use Windows Vista oder Windows 7 you can access the resolution windows by right-cliking on your desktop and selecting "Screen resolution".

You might have the resolution set too high so when it goes into Windows the monitor can't display it. Try booting into Safe Mode to change the resolution.

There is a guide on how to boot into Safe Mode here

GeForce 9400 gt, black screen problem


It looks like your graphics card changes the screen resolutions and/or refresh-rate to something beyond your monitor's capabilities.

After installing the drivers and the screen goes black, restart you're computer and press F8 to get the Windows advanced menu boot and choose "Enable VGA Mode".

When booted into Windows, right click on the desktop and select "properties", select the tab "Settings" and pick a really low resolution like "1024x768" and press the "Apply" button (but don't reboot yet when asked to). Next press the "Advanced" button, then select the tab "monitor" and change the monitor resolution to "default" or 60Hz.

Now restart your system and see wether Windows will boot normally. If so, you can change the resolution and refresh-rate back to you preferred values. Whenever you pick a too high resolution or refreshrate the screen will turn black again, but don't worry, don't press anything and just wait 15s, after which Windows will roll back to the previous setting ...
