I have a widescreen monitor that runs best at 1600x1050 (maybe 1250?)

Anyway, i changed the resolution to 1600x1200 and it the monitor went black and said frequency out of range. I waited thinking in 15 seconds it would revert back to the old settings.

It didn't. So i restarted the computer thinking it would work. Nope. I tried the Use last settings that worked. It booted showed my desktop and everything. Acted like it was going to work then suddenly went black on me again and showed the out of range message.

The only thing I did before I attempted to change the resolution was I installed the latest nvidia drivers marked for vista beta 2. I dont think thats the problem because I have been using it a while with those drivers.

Whats strange is that after i booted using last known good settings is that it worked for a few seconds.

I also tried using my old CRT monitor but it does the same thing.
And I tried reverting back to the old drivers that came with the vista install.

Any ideas?

Is there a registry setting that i can change while in safe mode?

Couple of things come to mind....

A) Do you have the Nvidia software loading on boot? (MSCONFIG)

:huh: Did you try to rollback the driver.

C) Uninstall and reinstall your Display Adapter from the Device Manager in safe mode. (Or AGP mode in Normal startup)

I had the same problem too the first day I installed Windows Vista Beta 2. I solved it by pressing F8 during boot and select reset video resolution or something like that and the monitor started working again.
