Hi NoRegretsEver , the correct way to trouble shoot this problem would be to use Vista's Advanced bootup options'
- You get to this by continuously tapping F8 during bootup.
- Then from the menu choose the option :
- Enable low resolution video (640 × 480)
Choosing this option starts Windows using your current video driver and using low resolution and refresh rate settings. You can use this mode to reset
your display settings. So once the system has loaded in 640 × 480 mode you should be able to find a good display setting that works with your monitor
using this method. That setting will then stick when you reboot your system.
Safe mode uses minimal drivers so its using a different video driver than the one you normally use. So if you cant get the display working correctly
using the "Enable low resolution video (640 × 480)" then you have a driver that is incompatible with your monitor. This could a video driver problem
or you may have to go and find a monitor driver that fits the monitor that you are using. Or it could even be a problem with the video driver and the
If the Enable low resolution video (640 × 480) doesnt work for you i would try to find a monitor driver that fits you monitor first.
