I recently replaced an hp pavillion running XP with an e-machine pc running windows 7. My old monitor, an hp f1703 flat panel lcd was still working. with Windows 7 it starts to load windows then the monitor goes black with an adjust resolution screen, which is set correctly. I have checked/updated everything I can think of (drivers, etc.) and the computer will boot in safe mode. The hp f1703 seems to be fine, and I even reset the monitor's On Screen Display menu to factory settings. Have spoken with emachine reps and they're clueless ... also have posted messages/received answers from the HP forum members ... again, problem will not go away. If I hook up an old CRT style monitor, everything boots normally, no problems. I even tried hooking up the hp flatscreen monitor to an older/different emachine running Windows 7 64 bit and get the exact same monitor error message (re: resolution should be set to 1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz ... WHICH IT IS). The only thing these two different emachines with the exact same monitor error would have in common is Windows 7. Please help!
