Question about HP Pavilion F1703 17" LCD Monitor
I just had a 15 inches dell monitor that I want to use with a compaq pc but it's giving the message: cannot display in this mode. what what does that mean and what should I do?
The old monitor was set to a resoloution that is higher then you current monitor can handle. This is normally the case when changing from a CRT to an LCD
Unplug the video cable from the back of your computer.
Start the computer and wait for about 2 minutes.
Press the power button on the front of the computer just once. This will **** it back down safely again.
Plug the video cable back in, then restart the computer with the monitor turned on.
If this dosn't work then try this:
