Hello,
My PC is usually hooked to an old 17" monitor with a max resolution of 1024x768. Over the weekend I took it to a friend how and used his 19" monitor at 1280x1024. I brought my PC back and hooked it back up to the 17" It said that it recognized 1280x1024 @ 60kHz. So stupid me, I went to the display shortcut and changed it to 1280X1024 @ 75kHz. Then my monitor went black. The sounds and buttons still work, but I don't see anything!

Everytime I restart I can't see the PC loading, the monitor black.

Help!

Did you try to hook it to another monitor?

The old monitor can't support higher than the 1024x768 resolution, and you have one of those damn video cards that remembers it's old resolution (all of them do, though :()

You will unfortunately have to find a monitor that DOES support the 1280 resoution, then change it back to 1024 from there.
