It is possible that you can adjust your refresh rate. You may need another monitor to set the rate.

You may also be able to boot into safe mode. Try pressing F8 as soon as the system completes the POST (if you can see it). From safe mode, you can adjust the rate.

Can you get anything from the monitor without connecting to a computer? You should try to reset the monitor to its default settings.

tv starts up windows and shows safe-mode. That right there is your problem, windows defaults the monitor down to regular 640 mode. I will cut out the hdmi since that is not a monitor. Safe-mode is used to trouble shoot your computer and it loads just barely the drivers you need to see and work with the computer. You will have to get the computer to boot up normally then proceed from there, also you will have to set up your video card to output hdmi.

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

Monitor comes on for seconds and then goes black


This may be because the resolution that is set in your user profile when you log on has been changed to a resolution not supported by the monitor. The best way to fix this is by going into Safe Mode (press F8 as the computer starts to load Windows) and change it to a lower resolution once you get logged in. 1024X768 is a pretty safe resolution to start with. Then restart and see if that fixes the issue.

Aspire 2920 won`t start up


As it's rebooting try tapping the F8 key to get to safe mode. Choose Safe Mode with cmd prompt first. Once your pc starts enter the text chkdsk /f in the black DOS box and reboot. The laptop should go though a check disk and fix problems. May not completely repair your laptop, but it's a start.

Problem with my T5224


Try booting to "SAFE MODE" then see how much free space is left on the hard drive.
Also in safe mode, defragment the HDD if you have not do so in awhile.
You need a minimum of 15% free space for XP oe ME to run.

Problem with starting up me dellE153FP


Try turning on your computer and keep pressing F8 and it should bring you to a menu. Choose "safe mode" and see if you can get into safe mode. If you can get into safe mode and then go into system restore and choose a date back to when you computer was last working properly for you. If you can't get into safe mode and goes back to a black screen then your OS is corrupt and you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and restore you computer back to factory defaults.

I have a Dell GX60 and I changed the display resolution and


So, with The computer, completely turned off, Turn it on, Can't you see the BIOS screen? , or a Dell LOGO?

It is when you see this BIOS or Dell logo Screen that you Need to:
  • PRESS F8
  • Press F8
  • Press F8, again, and again right when your computer turns on.
Then You should be brought to the Window that allows you to boot into SAFE MODE, DO NoT PICK SAFE MODE.

Pick: ------------ENABLE VGA (basically safe mode) Only!.

Once booted, log in and change the resolution to let's say 800x600,
then restart your computer normally.

You should then be able run windows normally, (Without F8 Key) where you can then change the resolution to what you want.

IMPORTANT! Remember this, if you set your display to a resolution that it Does Not

support, and the screen goes blank. DO Not Turn off your computer: ALL YOU DO IS PRESS

the (Esc) ESCAPE Key within 15 Seconds and your monitor's resolution will be set to it's

previous state again.

I Hope This Helps.
