Adaptor settings The adaptor settings got changed, I don't know exactly to what... but now my computer will boot up and the monitor works up until the windows finishes loading and then it shuts down. The monitor works fine, but the computer doesn't work with it. I tried turning my on board video card on and I've started in vga mode, but nothing works, not even safe modes.... so I can't see anything... please help.

Take out the video adaptor that you have installed and see if you can boot up with only the on-board video, first in standard mode and then if it won't work, try the safe mode..

Did you change any other settings?

Also, when you had the video card installed, did you disable the onboard video?

I have a Gem gl-190z2 monitor that displays over range after boot


Just lower the screen resolution

Boot into safe mode first by repeatedly pressing F8 and select safe mode
once booted click on an empty area of the screen and take it from there. 800x600 is a good starting point

Re-boot and adust as needed.

Your monitor was just telling you it was too much for it to handle thats all.

RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, ON REBOOT, CLICK F10 WHEN YOUR CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN COMES UP. YOU MUST PRESS F10 QUICKLY OR IT WILL LOAD WINDOWS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY GO TO SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, SCROLL DOWN TO BOOT OPTIONS CLICK ENTER. GO DOWN TO INTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER BOOT AND ENABLE IT. THEN GO TO SAVE AND EXIT. AFTER YOU RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, CHECK IF THE WIRELESS IS WORKING. IF LATER IT FAILS AGAIN, GO BACK INTO THE BIOS SETUP, IF THE ADAPTER IS STILL ENABLED, DO A DIAGNOSTIC TEST FROM THE BIOS UTILITY. IT WILL DO A QUICK TEST (IT IS FAST) THEN IT WILL DO A COMPREHENSIVE TEST, THIS WILL TAKE AWHILE UNTIL IT FINDS THE PROBLEM. BE PATIENT IT WILL FIX IT!!! THE COMPUTER SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY SHUTDOWN WHEN IT FINISHES. WHEN YOU TRY TO TURN YOUR COMPUTER BACK ON, IT MAY NOT COME ON THE 1ST TIME, THIS IS OK TOO. JUST KEEP PRESSING AND HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL IT COMES ON AND STAYS ON. NOW WHEN YOUR COMPUTER LOADS WINDOWS YOU WILL SEE YOUR WIRELESS ADAPTER IS WORKING.

I have a ViewSonic flat screen monitor. The images on the sign in page are fuzzy and unreadable. I have Windows XP.


I would check the connections between the monitor and computer. Also the refresh rate and/or resolution might be wrong. To correct this, you will need to boot your computer in safe mode. (restart computer, right after the computer's logo appears rapidly press the F8 key until a black and white menu appears. Select SAFE MODE) once the computer boots to safe mode, the sign on screen will appear very large. Sign onto the computer once at the desktop, RIGHT CLICK the background and select PROPERTIES. Once the display properties window appears click on the last tab SETTINGS. Here is where you can adjust the resolution. Take the screen resoltution to a low setting. You can always change this later when you boot your computer normally to get a better view. Next click on the ADVANCED button click on the MONITOR tab, usually flat screens operate at a lower refresh rate then CRT monitors. I usually keep my refresh rate to 60 Hertz. Next click on the GENERAL tab. This will allow you to change the DPI setting. I usually keep mine set to 96 DPI. You may want to experiment with this as monitors vary. Once done, click on the APPLY button then OK. Restart the comptuer and see if this has improved your display. You may need to do this several times trying different settings until you get a clear display. If you've exhausted all these steps, try a different monitor or changing the cable. If that fixes the problem then you know you have a bad monitor or cable. Good luck, let me know how it turns out.

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.

Computer not recognizing moniter


Resolution set too high for display.

Attach TUBE monitor, Start Windows, change resolution to 1024x768 (MAX) and then hit APPLY/OK.

Also check refresh rate, it is listed in hertz (hz) in advanced settings. Should be 70-72khz not faster than either.

Shut down PC, Connect LCD, you should have a decent picture.
