Heres the deal:
Have computer with Windows XP SP2.
Had a new 22 wide LCD, that just died
When I try using old monitor, the screen shows display until windows boots, then the resolution is set too high and monitor goes out.
I cannot access safe mode by pressing any f-keys
I even tried using S-video to TV but resolution seemed too high
I just want to change resolution, so I can use newest computer on older Monitor.
Anyone know how to do this?Cant change resolution on old monitor, after higher resolution monitor died. Cant get to change settings?
Start your computer, as soon as you see print on the screen, push the restart button. Do this 3 times in a row, and then let the computer start normally. It will give you the option for safe mode. When you boot there, you can change your screen settings.Cant change resolution on old monitor, after higher resolution monitor died. Cant get to change settings?
start the computer into safe mode..
there might even be the option at the f8 menue to start windows at the lowest resolution.
