We had a black out last night and the power came back on after about an hour. Prior to this, my son's PC was working fine. Now, when he turns it on, everything appears fine at first, but then after the Windows boot up screen has been running for maybe 30 seconds, the monitor says 'Mode Not Supported'. Here is some basic information:
Compaq CQ5110Y PC
AMD Athlon X2 64 7550 Dual-Core Processor
Windows Vista Home Premium OS
3 GB RAM
320 GB HD
Nvidia on-board graphics
The monitor, which is actually a TV, seems to work fine. It is also hooked up to a cable box and he can watch the cable with no problems. At first I thought the on-board graphics were fried when the power came back on. But I'm not so sure since you can get a visual from the PC up to the boot screen. Please help. I need to get it fixed before August because he does his schooling online (virtual school).
