Question about HP Pavilion F1523 15" LCD Monitor
Switch on the computer. Just as the BIOS messages or full screen logo is about to end, press F8 several times. Then you will see the Startup Menu for Windows XP. It will look like the following.
Safe mode Safe mode with command prompt Safe mode with ... .......................... ..........................
Check whether you have a option as 'Enable VGA mode'. If you see this, select it with arrow keys and press enter. You may have to press enter again.
(Since the computer was not shut down properly the last time you switched it on, you might see this menu when you switch on the computer. So simply select 'Enable VGA mode' )
The problem is you have a new VGA card and somewhat old monitor. The current Video Refresh Rate of the VGA is not supported by your monitor.
So once you start the computer in VGA mode, go to Display Properties, select 'Settings' tab (1), Click 'Advanced' button (2), Select 'Monitor' tab (3), Select the minimum value from the list (4) and click OK buttons(5).
Good luck! If you find this information useful, please give me a good rating.
