When you turn on your computer, press the F8 key to bring up the safe mode menu. Select enable VGA mode, which will put your computer into 40 x 480 mode. Once you're in windows, you can select a video resolution that your monitor will support.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

Screen is black, white square is moving around says "Not optimum mode Recommended mode : 1280x1024 60 Hz' Analog"


Hi,

Your resolution has been to a "not supported" range. You can try to boot to safe mode by pressing F8 while booting. While in safe mode, go to device manager and look for your video adapter there. Delete the driver for it and reboot the computer.

That should reset it for you.

Hope this works for you.

Continue to get message saying "Windows can't find hard disk space, hard drive error." tried to run scan check but computer will not allow it, also says I should not use computer until this...


Try this
- reboot the computer into SAFE MODE by pressing the F8 key right after the POST messages and before the Windows loading mode. If you have never done this it may get tricky on the timing and you may have to reboot several times before you get it. If this is the case I suggest to start tapping on the F8 key after the computer gives you the POST screen.
- Once you are successful on this step, you will have a black screen showing you a choice of modes to boot on. With the up-down arrow keys select SAFE MODE (plain vanilla, no network support etc..) and click on enter.
- Your computer will boot in SAFE MODE after going thru a series of messages in the screeen. This is normal, it is just displaying the boot process. If you hava a login and password it will ask for them, if not it wll take you into a screen that will look larger than normal due to its low resolution.
- Once there click on the My COMPUTER icon to get to the windows explorer and then highlight RECYLCE BIN, right click, select empty recylce bin and click on it. This process will empty the recyle bin and potentially give your system some much needed room.
- If successful, you may want to open your Internet browser(Explorer) and delete the temp files. and also defrag your HD.

Once completed, reboot your computer normally, then run a scan check.
Also see how much space you have left on your HD, you may have to get a larger HD.

Hope this helps.

My monitor says input not supported


Hi there,

Monitor says 'input not supported', means the computer is sending an incompatible display mode to your monitor. Please check the user’s manual for supported display mode or input and configure your computer to those settings. The recommended setting for LCD panel is 1024x768 resolution and you may need to change the refresh rate of the monitor to 60Hz.
In Safe Mode, fire uop regedit and ry going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Class\Display and delete that whole key (yes, this bascially will remove your video drivers) then reboot, when you reboot windows should start up in standard VGA mode and prompt you for the video card drivers.

GX520 screen display message: cannot display this video mode


This means that the windows setting you have set can not display on your current monitor. There are two ways to fix this, one is to boot the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 after the POST screen and change the resolution and the other is to plug the computer into a different monitor to see if supports that resolution and then change the resolution in windows to a lower setting.

In case you don't know how to change the resolution in windows, follow below.

Right click on the desktop
Properties
Settings at the top
Move the slider to 1024x768
Click ok

Try rebooting. If that still doesn't work, try another resolution.

Error: Cannot Display This Video Mode


You may have to boot into safe mode and reset the video settings to a safe setting like 1024x768.

  1. To get into safe mode, continuously press F8 while the computer is booting up.
  2. Eventually you will get a Windows XP Boot Menu.
  3. Choose the option for Safe Mode.
  4. Go to Start, Control Panel and double-click Display.
  5. On the Settings tab, drag the slider bar to 1024x768.
  6. Click OK
  7. Shut down and reboot.
If the problem goes away, then you are good. Otherwise, you'll have to boot menu again (F8) and choose Enable VGA Mode.

Screen says mode not supported h:53.4khz v;84.ghz


You should reboot your computer. Immediately after you see the BIOS splash screen (Dell, Acer, HP, etc...) start pressing the F8 key 2 times every second. If you're quick enough, you'll get the Windows boot menu. When you see the menu, select "VGA Mode". This will boot Windows with minimal video settings which are compatible with all modern monitors.

Once Windows loads, right click on the desktop, select Properties, go to the Settings tab, and begin sliding the resolution bar up from 800x600 and clicking Apply. After each change, it'll ask you if you want to keep the settings. If you can still see the screen, click Yes. If you get to a setting where your monitor goes black and says "mode not supported", then wait 15 seconds and it'll revert to the last mode that worked. Leave it there.

Here are some typical resolutions for monitors:

17" = 1280x1024
19" = 1280x1024
19" widescreen = 1440x900
21" = 1600x1200
24" = 1920x1200

Hope this helps!

The computer says unable to intialize subsystem please update the driver of your display system


Reboot the PC and press F8 go into the Safe Mode.
Once your in the Safe Mode reboot out and login normally.
Make sure you don't set the Video Card higher than what the Monitor can handle otherwise you'll see that message.
