The settings you need to change are actually on the computer's video hardware. Assuming you are using a Windows machine, right click anywhere on the desktop. Select Properties, then the Settings tab. You should see a resolution slider that you can adjust. There should be an Advanced button that will give you access to other settings that are possible with your hardware. This is where you can adjust the frequency.
If you are unable to see anything because of this problem then you may need to boot into Safe Mode to correct this. Let me know.

Could you check your SyncMaster 2233 for me and tell me your findings. If this monitor is connected from your computer and when both switch on, did the led indication lamp from your monitor lit steady green? or this lead indication lamp lit green then turns red?
1. If the led indication lamp lit steady green then there is nothing wrong with the settings, configurations, driver or hardware on your computer. The problem would be the backlight inverter lamp in your monitor is busted. Or it could be the inverter board that supplies high voltage for the backlight inverter lamp that is bad. You can replace the backlight inverter lamp located at the upper and lower part of the monitor with a replacement part you can purchase at shoppejimmy.com. Inverter board repair can be risky if you don't have the skill. Even opening the back cover of your monitor and replace by yourself the inverter lamp is risky too, could inflict more damage. you can bring it to a local professional service man.
2. If the led indication lamp lit green then turns red, then if not the video card the power supply section from your monitor is bad, you can replace polarized capacitor with same value. Just inspect and those with blown or leaking capacitor. You can also check the terminals and solder joints for the 15-pin vga terminal connector where vga cable is connected on your monitor. Resolder the terminals.
3. If the red indication lamp did not lit at all. Power supply section in the monitor is bad. You can check the output voltage from the power supply section. +5VDC is supplied for the main board and +24VDC is for the inverter board. Replace leaking or blown capacitor with same value.
Just remember, this should be done when computer and monitor is turn off
Post back if you have more questions. I am willing to give you assistance.
