I have a Dell Dimension 5150 wih XP Home SP3.
After an IT shop reload of XP Home the unit goes through a routine start-up and black screens"INPUT SIGNAL OUT OF RANGE" after the Windows XP flag appears. Of course nothing moves after that.
The Dell will start in the SAFE mode.
I have attached both a CRT monitor and a Hanspree HF237 flat screen with identical results.
The Control Panel Display settings have no effect in either resolution or color bit sizing.
Is this an output frequency issue? But, why does the unit work in SAFE mode.
It appears that the OS may have been changed by the SP3.
The Dell tech guys are still chewing on this one. And may continue to for a while.
Thank you in advance for your leadership on this.
