Boot in safe mode.
Using control panel and system - hardware - device manager, update the driver for the graphics card to standard vga or use the driver disk originally supplied with the graphics card.
Once completed, reboot PC and it should enter normal windows mode.
Now update the driver to the latest version from the manufacturers website.

Problem caused by corrupted setting for the display, so video card tries to set incorrect refresh rate or resolution for the monitor to display. By re-installing the driver, it is set back to default settings.

Issue with video driver setting video card to incorrect resolution/frequency. Go into safe mode and remove the video drivers, or change them to standard vga. Reboot in normal windows, then install latest drivers. Usually works for me.

Getting a No sync message on monitor ,computer


No sync message could be for 2 reasons.

1. Loose VGA cable
2. Wrong driver installed or configuration made is out of monitor range

For loose cable you can fix it up from both ends, on CPU and on Monitor itself.
For second reason, we just have to delete display driver from Device Manager. Follow below method to delete driver

Start computer in safe mode. To start in safe mode, as soon the system boots up press F8 and select Safe Mode. After you log into the safe mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on desktop, go to properties,
go to "Hardware" tab, Click on "Device Manager", go to "Display driver" and expland it, select the driver below the expanded "Display Driver" and press delete to remove the driver. Now restart the system and it will automatically adjust the display driver for you.

My igolf neo won't work with Windows 7 if i try


I fixed this problem by going to Start>Control Panel and uninstalling the Java 64-bit program. It is incompatible with the Neo sync application. The other Java program on there is compatible. It worked immediately without even restarting. (I tried the above Best Solution, but on the newer computers, I get a message saying the Vista driver is only for Vista, not for Windows 7).

Can't get installed


Windows XP Pro is very nasty when it comes to reading mp3 players. The OS is designed for maximum secuirty, so unless you change the security settings, it treats the mp3 player as an "unauthorized user". Here is some general TS to try first:

RCA M4208

Make sure the lock switch on the back is in the unlocked position. For the player to say "Loading," especially the first time you plug it into the computer, is normal - your computer is communicating with the player, installing drivers, and trying to load the Easy Rip Software. If it stays on loading past 10 minutes, however, something is not right. If you have selected to open the device automatically using Windows Media Player, you are headed for trouble, especially if you have more music and other files on your computer than the mp3 player can handle. If you have accidentally done this, disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player.
If you have checked the above, and you are still having problems, disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds or more to reset the mp3 player. Try plugging the mp3 player into the computer again. If it stays on loading for more than 10 minutes, unplug the mp3 player, go into the settings menu and change the mode from MSC to MTP or vice versa. If it still misbehaves when you replug the mp3 player into the computer, download the latest Easy Rip software from RCA's website and update your player's firmware - take note of the section they have on Windows Vista if you have Windows Vista. Good luck!

Sync out Of range


Hello,
You need to get the monitor back into a range it can use and the best way is to go into SAFE mode on the pc put it back into 640X 480 and at 60 hz refresh rate. 37.9khz is way too high for the monitor!
It is best in the 60hz to 80 hz (if it can go that high!) start at 60 to begin with and it will work.
Good Luck!

Setting the Refresh Rate in Enable VGA Mode - Windows XP

You will need to go into Enable VGA Mode to change the refresh rate.
  1. Restart the computer and repeatedly tap the F8 key on your keyboard until the Windows Advanced Options Menu appears.

  2. Select “Enable VGA Mode” and press Enter.

  3. If asked to choose your operating system just press Enter.

  4. Once the computer has finished booting up go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor.

  5. Change your Refresh Rate/Refresh Frequency to a lower setting.

  6. Click Apply to confirm the change.

  7. Close all open windows and restart your computer.

Wont load on computer!!! "Unrecognizable"


Back up your files on the device, if possible and then perform a Repair:
Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new.

You will now be able to load the firmware upgrade that makes it compatible with Vista.
open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website; click on the Update tab.

Also, it sounds like your new laptop has the Automatic synchronization option selected for Windows Media Player. To fix this:
1) Backup all files stored on your GoGear, as this process will delete all files from your GoGear
2) Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portbale media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player.

Sync notice...?


If your using XP, go to the Windows Media Player and load the CD. You will see a Sync Icon. When you click on it will run and then give you a sync complete. Plug in your Sansa to the usb port and load from the Windows Media Player. Myles5@optonline.net
