Default Re:


You sure it's your monitor?

Try resetting your monitor's onboard display settings to factory default...

Also, try booting up the PC, hitting F8 just before Windows loads, and selecting the option Enable VGA mode. Generic Windows video driver will be loaded and the resolution and colour depth will reset to the low values.

Also, make sure the VGA cable is plugged in correctly...

If these don't work, then your monitor is probably :cross: ...
